Table: What Ails Ericsson


TERMINALS

The mobile-handset business is losing market share and racking uplosses in the range of $500 million per quarter. The joint-venture deal with Sony won't be a panacea.

NETWORK EQUIPMENT

Ericsson dominates, but its margins are declining, and it risks losing market share.

NEGATIVE CASH FLOW

The company is bleeding cash and running low on funds. It is not clear where it can raise new money.

DEADLOCKED OWNERSHIP

Two Swedish shareholders, the Wallenbergs and Handelsbanken, control the company through A shares. This makes decision-making and bringing in strong management difficult.
