The action of the Swedish telecoms giant Ericsson (ERIC, US $ 13.25) fell sharply on Friday after a second quarter marked by bad news from China, despite a giant contract of more than $ 8 billion won with the American Verizon in the United States. At the start of the session on the Stockholm Stock Exchange, the world’s second-largest manufacturer of telecoms networks lost nearly 10%, weighed down by concerns over reprisals in China for the banning of its Chinese competitors Huawei and ZTE from the construction of 5G networks in Sweden. Sales in China collapsed by two-thirds in the second quarter, unexpectedly falling to 1.5 billion kroner and management suggested the situation was sustainable in the important Chinese market. In the second quarter, the Swedish flagship posted a net profit of 3.9 billion crowns (381 million euros), up 51% year on year, driven by the improvement in its overall profitability, according to its financial report . But the turnover was down slightly (-1%) to 54.9 billion crowns, mainly due to the sharp decline in sales in China, as well as a decline in patent-related revenues. Analysts expected a lower net profit, around 350 million euros according to Factset and Bloomberg, but a much higher turnover, in excess of 57.2 billion crowns.
