STOCKHOLM, Sept 2 Mobile phone maker Sony
Ericsson (6758.T) (ERICb.ST) said on Wednesday it was not eyeing
a purchase of Nortel Network Corp's NRTLQ.PK stake in
LG-Nortel, refuting a South Korean media report.
"It's definitely not us. There must be some kind of
confusion. I'm sure if it's something of that importance, I
would know about it", said Aldo Liguori, Corporate Vice
President Global Communications at Sony Ericsson.
South Korean online news eDaily, citing an unnamed banking
source, reported earlier on Wednesday that Sony Ericsson,
Alcatel Lucent SA ALUA.PA and a private equity arm of JP
Morgan (JPM.N) are among the candidates shortlisted to buy the
LG-Nortel stake. [ID:nSEO171861]
