Feb. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Alcatel-Lucent SA Chief Executive Officer Ben Verwaayen, whose term ends this year, won’t have his mandate renewed and will step down May 7, Le Monde reported, without citing anyone.

The decision was made at a board meeting today, the newspaper said. Alcatel-Lucent is scheduled to release fourth-quarter earnings tomorrow before the market opens in France.
