Nokia to sell its Digital Health business to the original owner
After the French press reported last week that Nokia is in talks with Google, Samsung and some local companies to sell its Digital Health business, the Finnish company confirmed the information today and offered a few extra details about the deal.

Besides the fact that it will sell the Digital Health business, Nokia announced it has entered into exclusive negotiations for the sale with its former owner, Éric Carreel, co-founder and ex-chairman Withings.


According to Nokia, the transaction is subject to terms agreed in negotiations, while the deal is expected to close in late Q2 2018. Although it's too early to guess the amount of money Nokia will get for its Digital Health business, it's worth mentioning that the Finnish company bought Withings two years ago for €170 million.

It's better that way, a single company cannot focus on a plethora of sectors.

You mean unsuccessful companies cannot focus on a plethora of sectors.
