Cisco Denies Report That It's Interested in Buying Ericsson

Cisco Systems, Inc. (NasdaqGS:CSCO) said it isn’t interested in trying to take over Ericsson AB, refuting a report made by a Swedish website, Dagens Industri. Cisco is focused on its recently announced partnership with the maker of wireless-system machinery, said Nigel Glennie, a spokesman for San Jose, California-based Cisco. "As our executives have said this week, other types of transactions were never on the table," Glennie said. "We’re excited about the strategic partnership we announced on Monday and the potential it offers for both companies." Minako Nakatsuma Olofzon, a spokeswoman for Stockholm-based Ericsson, said the company doesn’t comment on rumors or speculation. "We look forward to starting to execute on the partnership we announced with Cisco this week," Minako Nakatsuma Olofzon said.

Ericsson Reportedly Seeks Acquisitions

Ericsson AB is looking for bigger merger and acquisitions. Ericsson is open to a transaction to counter a move by rivals Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent SA to combine and overtake the Swedish company as a leading provider of network equipment, said people familiar with the plans. Hans Vestberg, Chief Executive Officer of Ericsson plans to gather with his top managers next month to discuss strategy, and a key area is what Ericsson can do to respond after Nokia’s $16.6 billion acquisition of Alcatel-Lucent, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified discussing private deliberations. A spokesman for Ericsson declined to comment on Ericsson’s acquisition plans.
