Nortel to sell entire GSM business

The bankrupt Canadian-based telecommunications equipment-maker is continuing to liquidate its assets by announcing the company would sell its entire GSM and GSM-R business units.

Nortel has filed motions in both Canadian and U.S. courts to begin initial phases to sell the businesses.

Potential buyers will have to file offers by November 5, 2009, with an option auction starting a few days later on Nov 9.

Nortel has already sold off a number of its businesses and assets already.

On June 25, 2009, Ericsson bought Nortel’s CDMA LTE assets for $1.3 billion.

Nortel lastly posted a $2.14B Q4 2008 loss before filing for chapter 11-bankruptcy protection on January 14, 2009, and about a month later announced up to 3,200 additional layoffs.

Colon cancer is one of the leading causes of death. Irrespective of family history, everyone is exposed to the risk. About 90% of colon cancer cases begin from non-cancerous tumors, polyps, which could form in the large bowel. Screening with a colonoscopy will painlessly remove any polyps hence almost entirely reducing your risk of developing the horrible disease. The good news is that about 90% of colon cancer cases are preventable through a simple (yes, simple) colonoscopy.
