Nokia owns a company named Nokia Solutions and Networks, which provides
telecommunications network equipment and services.
Nokia was the world's largest vendor of mobile phones from 1998 to 2012.
However, over the past five years its market share declined as a result of the
growing use of touch screen smart phones from other vendors—principally
the iPhone, by Apple, and devices running on Android, an operating system
created by Google—in which Nokia did not take enough advantage of.
As a result, the corporation's share price fell from a high of US$40 in late 2007 to
under US$2 in mid-2012.
As of 2012, Nokia employs 101,982 people across 120 countries, conducts sales
in more than 150 countries, and reports annual revenues of around €30 billion.
By 2012, it was the world's second-largest mobile phone maker in terms of unit
sales (after Samsung), with a global market share of 18.0% in the fourth quarter
of that year.
Nokia is a public limited-liability company listed on the Helsinki Stock
Exchange and New York Stock Exchange.
It is the world's 274th-largest company measured by 2013 revenues according to
the Fortune Global 500.
