On May 28, 2010, Nortel Networks Corporation (NNC) announced that it, its principal operating subsidiary Nortel Networks Limited (NNL), and certain of its other subsidiaries, including Nortel Networks Inc. (NNI) and Nortel Networks UK Limited (in administration) (together, Nortel), have completed the sale of substantially all of the global assets of Nortel’s Carrier VoIP and Application Solutions business to GENBAND US LLC (GENBAND) for a purchase price of $282 million. The net purchase price was approximately $182 million after balance sheet and other adjustments of approximately $100 million, and was paid in cash. Under the terms of the sale, Nortel will provide certain transitional services to GENBAND.
