Item 8.01 Other Events.

Nortel Networks Corporation (“NNC” and, together with its subsidiaries, “Nortel”) previously announced the filing by NNC, NNC’s wholly-owned principal operating subsidiary, Nortel Networks Limited, and certain other subsidiaries organized under Canadian law (collectively, the “Canadian Debtors”) of an application with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada), seeking relief from their creditors and the filing by NNC’s indirect subsidiaries Nortel Networks Inc., a Delaware corporation, Nortel Networks Capital Corporation, a Delaware corporation, and certain other subsidiaries organized under the laws of Delaware and California (collectively, the “U.S. Debtors” and, together with the Canadian Debtors, the “Debtors”) of voluntary petitions (the “Chapter 11 Proceedings”) for relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code with the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “U.S. Court”).

Since the commencement of the Chapter 11 Proceedings, Nortel has undergone restructuring efforts, including advancing in discussions with third parties to divest its businesses. During this time, the Debtors and their affiliates, including Nortel Networks (CALA) Inc. (“NN CALA”), have reviewed their business needs to determine the appropriate means of preserving value for their stakeholders. Accordingly, NN CALA has decided to seek Chapter 11 protection to preserve assets and administer its assets and business in a manner consistent with the Debtors’ larger restructuring efforts.

On July 14, 2009, NN CALA filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code with the U.S. Court and on July 15, 2009, the U.S. Debtors filed a motion to have certain orders previously entered in the Chapter 11 Proceedings with respect to the U.S. Debtors govern NN CALA. NN CALA will continue to operate its business as a “debtor-in-possession” under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Court and in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and the orders of the U.S. Court.
