Nokia Siemens Has Received Private-Equity Interest

Nokia Siemens Networks, the world’s second-largest maker of wireless networks, said it was contacted by private-equity companies interested in buying a stake.

“This is unsolicited,” Chief Executive Officer Rajeev Suri said today in an interview at a conference in Santander, Spain. “We don’t need capital. We don’t need to do a deal with private equity. But, we would look at it. It can give us some strategic flexibility. We look forward not just to capital, but also to good ideas.”
