11:55 EDTNOK, MSFTNokia advances after securing Chinese approval for Microsoft deal
Shares of Nokia (NOK) are higher this morning after a deal to sell substantially all of its Devices & Services business to Microsoft (MSFT) received regulatory approval in China. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Nokia won approval from China's Ministry of Commerce, the country's competition authority, to sell its mobile phone business to Microsoft for EUR5.4B, or about $7.4B. In addition to China, Nokia and Microsoft have now received regulatory approvals from the U.S. Department of Justice, the European Commission and numerous other jurisdictions. Nokia and Microsoft believe the transaction will close this month. WHAT'S NEW: Nokia said in a statement that that several competition authorities around the world reviewed Nokia's patent licensing practices in the regulatory approval process. The company said "no authority" challenged Nokia's compliance with its fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory, or FRAND, undertakings related to standard-essential patents or requested that Nokia make changes to its licensing program or royalty terms. The closing of the transaction is still subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. PRICE ACTION: Nokia shares trading in New York advanced 39c, or 5.4%, to $7.61 in late-morning trading, while Microsoft was nearly flat at $39.72.
