Οριστική η εξαγορά της Nokia από τη Microsoft στις 25 Απριλίου και μετονομασία σε “Microsoft Mobile Oy”

nokia-microsoft

Ενδιαφέρουσες εξελίξεις για την περιβόητη εξαγορά του τμήματος Nokia Devices & Services από τη Microsoft, καθώς η φιλανδική εταιρεία ανακοίνωσε ότι απομένουν ελάχιστες λεπτομέρειες και θα ολοκληρωθεί οριστικά στις 25 Απριλίου. Παράλληλα, διέρρευσε έγγραφο που απέστειλε η Microsoft σε συνεργάτες της Nokia και αποκάλυψε ότι η επωνυμία Nokia Corporation/Nokia Oyj θα αντικατασταθεί από την “Microsoft Mobile Oy”.

Επομένως, είναι εξαιρετικά πιθανό ότι τα Nokia Lumia 930/630/635 και Nokia 225 είναι οι τελευταίες συσκευές που κυκλοφορούν με την επωνυμία της Nokia (μετά από περίπου 25 χρόνια στον χώρο της κινητής τηλεφωνίας ) και στο εξής θα περιμένουμε smartphones/tablets από τη Microsoft Mobile Oy.

Dear Supplier,

On September 3, 2013, Nokia Corporation announced its intention to sell substantially all of its Devices and Services Business to Microsoft Corporation. We anticipate the transaction to close during April 2014.

Under the terms of the sale, Microsoft will assume all rights, benefits and obligations of the Nokia Devices and Services business, including Nokia’s agreements with suppliers, customers and partners which pertain to the Devices and Services business. Therefore, the purpose of this letter is to update you that the current terms and conditions that you have with the Devices and Services business will not change.

Please note that upon the close of the transaction between Microsoft and Nokia, the name of Nokia Corporation/Nokia Oyj will change to Microsoft Mobile Oy. Microsoft Mobile Oy is the legal entity name that should be used for VAT IDs and for the issuance of invoices.

NEW BUSINESS INVOICE DETAILS:

New name and registered address replacing Nokia Oyj/Nokia Corporation is:

Microsoft Mobile Oy

Keilaranta 7

02150 ESPOO

Finland

New Bank Accounts: Please note that Microsoft Mobile Oy is going to have new bank accounts, for further information please contact us via AP Portal: https://ap.nokia.com/APPortalExt/Login.aspx (registration required).

There is NO change in the invoice sending method, please continue to send the invoices via electronic channels as before.

For further information on changes (legal address/send to address) after the close of the transaction between Microsoft and the Nokia Devices and Services business, please check our Invoice Address Search tool (IAS): https://ap.nokia.com/APPortalExt/AddressSearch.aspx (No registration required), or contact us via AP Portal: https://ap.nokia.com/APPortalExt/Login.aspx (Registration required).

Please note that the only changes in the Purchase Order (PO) layout after the close of the transaction will be to remove the Nokia Logo and change the legal address, whereas the PO numbering format and sequence will not change.

Continuation of business with Nokia

In addition to becoming a supplier for Microsoft Mobile Oy, we appreciate that you might also remain a supplier to the continuing businesses of Nokia (i.e., NSN, HERE or Advanced Technologies) after the close of the transaction between Microsoft and Nokia Devices and Services. Nokia will communicate separately any changes in invoicing methods and addresses before the close of this transaction.

Best regards,

Nokia Devices and Services Financial Services Purchase to Pay Team
