Per share it was EUR 0:05, which can be compared with an average forecast among analysts of EUR 0:03 according to Refinitiv. Revenues during the quarter rose by 7 percent compared to the previous year to EUR 5.7 billion.
Analysts had estimated just over SEK 5.4 billion. The forecast for the full year 2019 is simultaneously confirmed by Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri, although he also points to risks related to, among other things, uncertainty in trade issues and challenges in the Chinese market.
