Ericsson’s profit, sales slump as problems worsen

first_img Tags Ericsson announced preliminary Q3 results reporting falls in both operating income and sales, with stand-in CEO Jan Frykhammar admitting the result was significantly lower than expected.The leaderless equipment giant said operating income in the quarter to end-September fell by 93 per cent to SEK 300 million ($34 million), while sales slumped 14 per cent to SEK 51 billion. The full report is due on 21 October, as previously communicated.“Our result is significantly lower than we expected, with a particularly weak end of the quarter, and deviates from what we previously have communicated regarding market development,” said Frykhammar.The main culprit was the networks business where negative trends present in Q2 accelerated in the following quarter, he explained on a call with analysts.Network sales fell by 14 per cent in Q2 but lurched down by 19 per cent in Q3, a worsening of the situation that Frykhammar said merited “immediate disclosure”.The sales decline was mainly from markets where operators are impacted by poor macro-economic conditions such as Brazil, Russia and the Middle East. Both coverage and capacity sales are struggling in those markets. In addition, capacity sales in Europe were lower following completion of mobile broadband projects in 2015.Still seeking a permanent replacement for CEO Hans Vestberg who stepped down in July, the company recently announced thousands of job cuts.Questioned by analysts whether additional restructuring is now necessary, Frykhammar responded that the cost of sales must be adjusted accordingly. “That’s clear given the volume reduction. We can provide more detail later on but that’s a given.”But he denied there were underlying structural issues behind Ericsson’s problems. “What is impacting us is operators’ businesses. Those countries are important to us and we have a strong position in Russia, Middle East and Brazil. This means we are impacted when operators reduce their capex. But I don’t see any other structural questions around that,” he said.

Older patients recover more slowly from concussion

first_imgShare LinkedIn Share on Twitter For this study, Dr. Chen and colleagues used fMRI to evaluate the effect of age on working memory performance and functional activation in the brain after MTBI. The researchers performed fMRI exams on 13 young adults (21-30 years old) and 13 older adults (51-68 years old) with MTBI and 26 age- and gender-matched controls. The first fMRI scan was performed within one month post-injury. A follow-up scan was performed six weeks after the first exam. The researchers then analyzed post-concussion symptoms, neuropsychological test results and working memory activity in both groups.The analysis revealed that while performing working memory tasks, the young patients with concussion had initial activation that was greater than normal, known as hyperactivation, compared to young controls in the right precuneus and right inferior parietal gyrus of the brain, whereas the older patients had hypoactivation (less than normal) compared to older controls in the right precuneus and right inferior frontal gyrus.In comparing the patients in initial and follow-up study, the young patients had significantly reduced post-concussion symptom score at follow-up than at the time of the initial exam, but no significant change of the post-concussion symptom score was observed in the older patients, who also showed persistent hypoactivation.“Taken together, these findings provide evidence for differential neural plasticity across different ages, with potential prognostic and therapeutic implications,” said the study’s co-author, Ying-Chi Tseng, M.D., from Shuang-Ho Hospital. “The results suggest that MTBI might cause a more profound and lasting effect in older patients.”The researchers hope that these findings might eventually lead to the development of separate management strategies for different age groups following concussion. Older individuals may have a more difficult time recovering from concussion, according to a new study published online in the journal Radiology.Mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), or concussion, accounts for 75 percent of all TBI and represents an important public health problem. Difficulty in working memory is frequently reported in patients after concussion. However, neuropsychological tests, computed tomography (CT) and conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) generally fail to reveal abnormal findings in these patients. Functional MRI (fMRI) has been increasingly used in assessing patients with MTBI.“Old age has been recognized as an independent predictor of worse outcome from concussion, but most previous studies were performed on younger adults,” said the study’s lead author, David Yen-Ting Chen, M.D., from the Department of Radiology at Shuang-Ho Hospital, Taipei Medical University, in New Taipei City, Taiwan.center_img Pinterest Share on Facebook Emaillast_img read more

Freshfields partner groped ‘exceptionally drunk’ colleague, tribunal hears

first_imgA male partner at magic circle firm Freshfields groped an ‘exceptionally drunk’ junior female colleague after a night of drinking, a disciplinary tribunal heard today.Ryan Beckwith, a restructuring and insolvency expert with Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, allegedly asked to use the bathroom of Person A, who was an associate in her twenties at the time, having entered a taxi with her after an evening of heavy drinking. Person A, whose identity is protected, told the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal that she was ‘feeling more and more drunk and more and more impaired’ after leaving a City pub with Beckwith after an ‘impromptu’ evening out with colleagues.She fell asleep in the taxi and woke up to find her jeans undone. She said Beckwith then entered her flat to use her bathroom.Person A said her memories were not ‘fully formed’ but that she later woke up to find herself partially clothed in bed and Beckwith sitting on the floor. She said she could not remember how she came to be undressed.She told Beckwith she ‘did not feel comfortable’ and repeated ‘you are a partner’ and ‘you are married’, the tribunal heard. Person A recalled she then woke up to find Beckwith in bed with her. She alleged he commented on her body, touched her and climbed on top of her. When he continued to touch her she said she ‘tried to stop him’ but ‘couldn’t really push him off’.She said she cannot remember if sexual intercourse took place.Questioned by Riel Karmy-Jones QC, for the Solicitors Regulation Authority, Person A recalled an earlier incident when Beckwith attempted to kiss her after an alcohol-fuelled work event. On that day, lawyers began drinking champagne and wine on a coach at around 10am. The respondent allegedly helped to organise the event and was handing round the drinks on the bus, the tribunal heard. In a statement to the Gazette, Ed Braham, senior partner at Freshfields, said: ‘The firm takes all complaints extremely seriously. When this complaint was reported to us we instructed an external law firm to conduct a thorough investigation and we took actions in the light of the report’s findings. ‘We want a culture that is welcoming and allows our people to flourish, and we work hard to achieve that. We are running a firm-wide programme to ensure our values and behaviours are consistently experienced across the firm, and I am confident that we will continue to achieve change where it is needed.’The hearing, which is due to last 10 days, continues.last_img read more
