After the closing of the exchange offer, it is planned that the Networks business would be conducted through four business groups: Mobile Networks, Fixed Networks, Applications & Analytics and IP/Optical Networks.
Nokia Technologies, ITRealms  also reports, would remain as a separate entity within the combined company. In addition, effective after the closing of the exchange offer, Nokia would have six additional business leaders serving as Chief Financial Officer, Chief Customer Operations Officer, Chief Innovation & Operating Officer, Chief Human Resources Officer, Chief Strategy Officer and Chief Marketing Officer.
