The complaint charges Nokia and certain of its officers and directors with
violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Nokia provides
telecommunications infrastructure hardware, software, and services worldwide.
The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants told investors
that Nokia’s conversion to a Windows platform would halt its deteriorating
position in the smartphone market. It did not. This became apparent on April
11, 2012, when Nokia disclosed that its first quarter performance would be
worse than expected. Nokia expected its first quarter 2012 non-IFRS Devices &
Services operating margin to fall by 3%, and projected first quarter 2012
Devices & Services net sales of €4.2 billion. It also disclosed a glitch in
its newest Windows offering – the Lumia 900. Nokia had to immediately offer
customers an automatic $100, making the phone essentially free.
As a result of this disclosure, the price of Nokia’s American Depositary
Shares (“ADRs”) dropped over 16% in a single day.
Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of Nokia
publicly traded securities during the Class Period (the “Class”). The
plaintiff is represented by Robbins Geller, which has expertise in prosecuting
