Company Report

Nokia: Acquisition of Infinera Is a Smart Use of Capital

The agreement to acquire optical network solutions provider Infinera should lead to a beneficial increase in Nokia’s optical solutions scale and offers the opportunity for material cost savings. Nokia has been piling up cash while seeing its stock flounder amid a lull in wireless and wireline network spending in most geographies over the past year and a half. We think this is a good use of capital, and we continue to believe the shares are undervalued, as we are maintaining our EUR 5.50 fair value estimate.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

The capabilities of 5G will bring a new market of customers and a longer and more expansive cycle of network spending as enterprises deploy private networks and use Internet of Things functions.

Bears

Nokia’s customer base is concentrated among sophisticated communications service providers and equipment manufacturers, which yield significant buying power, limiting the company's pricing power.
