Nortel files for bankruptcy protection, shares plunge – Yahoo! Singapore News

TORONTO – Nortel Networks Corp, North America’s biggest maker of telephone equipment, filed for bankruptcy protection on Wednesday, as the global economic downturn further erodes its once high-flying business.

The filing came a day before the Toronto-based company was due to make an interest payment of about $107 million.

Nortel and a number of its affiliates filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States, according to a court filing.

Its shares plunged more than 76 percent to 7.5 cents in electronic pre-market trading.

  1. I feel sorry for the shareholders, a lot of them forced into buying Nortel because Brokers and Money managers pushed it on their clients. “Nortel is THE tech company in Canada”. I can hear them saying
    things like that. The think is the strong, well managed companies survive and Nortel is not a strong company. Accounting problems, roll back, mismanagement, and now at .12! Let the company REST IN PEACE and we don’t have to hear another analyst opinion on Nortel.

  2. This is insane. Shareholders will loose a big chunk of their investments throught this. lets hope that the economical crysis will come to an end soon.
