Nokia Siemens Networks was unprofitable, with both Nokia and Siemens attempting, but failing to sell it to private investors last year. They cut 17,000 jobs (nearly 1/4 of their entire staff) and have seen earnings jump slightly. Nokia Siemens Networks posted a profit of $1.2 billion during Q1 2013, which was a nice 117% increase year-over-year.
