Solidium invests in Nokia Corporation 2018-03-13 08:07:01
Solidium Oy has acquired 3.3 per cent of the shares in Nokia Corporation for approximately EUR 844 million. The shares have been acquired from the market during the beginning of the year. Following the share purchases, Nokia corresponds to approximately 11 per cent of Solidium's equity investments, totalling approximately EUR 8.4 billion.
"The divestment of our stake in Telia in the beginning of the year made it possible for us to invest into Nokia, which fits perfectly into Solidium's portfolio. The appealing factors for us are the company's strong market position combined with broad technological expertise, which provides opportunities for value creation. In line with our mandate, we hereby strengthen and stabilize the domestic ownership in this nationally very important company", says Solidium's CEO Antti Mäkinen.
