Vanjoki is to leave Nokia as Elop hired

first_imgMonday 13 September 2010 7:55 pm Vanjoki is to leave Nokia as Elop hired ANSSI Vanjoki, the Nokia executive in charge of smartphones and services, is resigning following the appointment of outsider Stephen Elop as chief executive of the world’s biggest cellphone maker.Vanjoki, who joined Nokia in 1991 and has been head of Mobile Solutions since 2008, has a six-month notice period and will continue with his current tasks for the time being, Nokia said in a statement yesterday.“I felt the time has come to seek new opportunities in my life,” said Vanjoki, an outspoken and respected figure in the mobile phone industry who was considered the most likely internal candidate to replace chief executive Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo.“This marks the end of an era at Nokia and could signal further management changes to follow,” UK-based telecoms research firm CCS Insight said in a note.Vanjoki heads Nokia’s high-end phones and services businesses, the area in which the Finnish firm is under most pressure to compete with Apple’s iPhone and more recent hit models like Motorola’s Droid in the United States.He was responsible for Nokia’s Nseries, which included the N95 smartphone that was a hit in 2006. Nokia has not produced another smartphone as popular since then.Vanjoki said he was still looking forward to Nokia World, the company’s annual showcase event, where he is due to give the opening keynote today. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailElite HeraldJoe DiMaggio’s Mob Ties Will Totally Transform Your Opinion Of The StarElite HeraldTips and TricksWrap your feet in aluminium foil and a few hours later you will have this resultTips and TricksUrbanAuntyAt 99 Years Old, She’s One Of The World’s Oldest Living CelebritiesUrbanAuntyLife Exact BrazilGrace Jones Is Now 72 Years Old, This Is Her NowLife Exact BrazilBetterBeUse Vinegar For These Home Hacks, Watch What HappensBetterBealldelishHere is what happens to your body when you start eating 2 eggs every dayalldelish More From Our Partners UK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org Show Comments ▼center_img KCS-content whatsapp Share whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

There was a decline in consumers’ confidence in their personal financial situation over the past year and in their expectations for the next 12 months as well as in the general economic situation. Optimism for the economy over the next year fell five points to -19, 23 points lower than in September 2009.However, more consumers now think that the current climate is good for making major purchases with the index rising five points compared to August. This is perhaps due to the scheduled January VAT hike encouraging consumers to buy big ticket items before the end of the year.

Traffic rebound boosts BA

first_img FLAG-CARRIER British Airways (BA) reported a 1.3 per cent rise in air traffic during September, mainly on the back of a return in business travel, boosting its shares to a new two-year high yesterday. BA said that its premium traffic – business and first-class passengers – rose by 4.3 per cent, signalling an end to the impact of the summer’s strikes by cabin crew and general malaise of the business traveller. The airline, which excluding last month has reported consecutive monthly declines in traffic figures, said that overall traffic in the year ending in September was still down by 7.4 per cent.However, BA flew three million passengers globally during the month, marking a 4.3 per cent rise on the same period last year when 2.9m people flew with the airline. The passenger figures were boosted by a 6.2 per cent climb in passengers travelling within Europe and the UK, and 6.9 per cent more passengers flying to its African and Middle Eastern destinations. BA’s shares jumped 6.48 per cent on the positive news yesterday and closed at 245.60p, marking the highest close for the airline in two years. Meanwhile, 82.4 per cent of BA’s flights were full last month, improving on last year when 81.5 per cent of seats on its flights were booked.

Pandora priced its Copenhagen IPO at the high end of a previously indicated range of 175-225 crowns.Sydbank analyst Soren Lontoft Hansen said the IPO price was “fair” but assumes strong prospects for the firm.Pandora, established as a Copenhagen shop in 1982, has grown briskly over the past decade, with sales of around €465m (£404m) in 2009. The IPO values Pandora, which made 86 per cent of first-half sales from bracelets and charms, at about $5bn and makes the listing one of the top five largest in Europe this year.The shares debuted at 225 crowns and climbed as high as 251.90 crowns before cooling to 247.50 crowns — still up nearly 18 per cent from the IPO price — in unusually heavy volumes.“The idea is to make [this] into one of the most successful branded companies in jewellery and luxury goods,” said chairman Allan Leighton.ROTHSCHILDROTHSCHILD was among the lead advisers to Danish jewellery firm Pandora that surprised markets with its strong debut yesterday.“We thought investor appetite would be good because this is a company that is growing strongly and still has the emerging markets to expand into,” said a banker connected to the deal. But the strength debut certainly exceeded our expectations.”Danish private equity firm Axcel, and the Enevoldsen family who launched the business in 1982, sold just under 36 per cent of their holding in the business. This will rise to 41 per cent if demand for the shares exceeds the original amount offered. City heavyweight Allan Leighton was drafted in as chairman over the summer.“Whenever you bring Allan into a project he inevitably puts his stamp on it,” said the banker. “He has a lot of international experience and he will bring this to bear as the company seeks to expand into emerging markets in Brazil and eastern European.” Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley and Nordea were joint global coordinators and bookrunners for the IPO, while Carnegie and SEB were co-lead managers. FIH Partners were also advisers. last_img read more

Starbucks stirs up trouble over Kraft deal

first_imgMonday 29 November 2010 7:48 pm whatsapp Tags: NULL Share Starbucks stirs up trouble over Kraft deal KRAFT Foods yesterday said it is seeking arbitration in its fight with Starbucks, which is trying to end a deal under which Kraft sells packaged Starbucks coffee to grocery stores.Starbucks accused Kraft of failing to meet certain provisions of their arrangement, including keeping Starbucks involved in major marketing initiatives.Kraft, which has overseen the growth of the packaged coffee business from $50m (£32m) to $500m in annual sales, in turn accused Starbucks of trying to walk away from their partnership without honoring its conditions.Starbucks, which is also pushing for sales growth of its Via instant coffee, has made no secret of a desire to exert more control over its consumer packaged-goods business.Yesteday, the company said it has exercised its right to end the relationship due to Kraft’s failure to fix the alleged breaches of their partnership. It expects to assume direct responsibility for the packaged-coffee business in March.Kraft said it recognised Starbucks’ right to take over the business but said the deal calls for Kraft to get sufficient time to prepare for any transition. center_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyHistorical GeniusHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeHistorical GeniusWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”WanderoamMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Herald Show Comments ▼ KCS-content Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof whatsapplast_img read more
