In second quarter of Fn year 2009-2010, the poor performance of NokiaSiemens is the reason for the slight loss in Nokia’s Net profit.. But in the last quarter, Nokia managed to get some huge money, which helped in the rise of their share values recently.. Surely the good performance of Nokia-Siemens is very very important for the companies..
