Finnish network equipment maker Nokia said on Friday it was looking into transactions at its former French rival Alcatel-Lucent which it acquired in 2016, after reporting possible compliance issues at the unit to U.S. authorities.
Shares were down 5.12 percent by 12:12 p.m. EST, on track for worst day since October 2017 and bottom of the pan-European STOXX 600 index.
"The last night comment on possible fines stemming from business transactions of Alcatel-Lucent is hurting the stock, the market is really sensitive about Nokia these days," said Kimmo Stenvall, analyst at OP Markets.
Nokia said certain practices relating to compliance issues at the former Alcatel-Lucent business had raised its concerns during the integration process.
"To ensure complete compliance we are now scrutinizing certain transactions in the former Alcatel-Lucent business and although this investigation is in a relatively early stage, out of an abundance of caution and in the spirit of transparency, Nokia has contacted the relevant regulatory authorities regarding this review," Nokia said in an emailed statement to Reuters.
Nokia said it had voluntarily reported the matter to the relevant regulators, and it was cooperating with the authorities to resolve the matter.
"The resolution of this matter could result in potential criminal or civil penalties, including the possibility of monetary fines, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, brand, reputation or financial position," it said in a filing to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
