Nokia (NYSE:NOK): Finland’s Nokia Corp. (NYSE:NOK) will relocate their Central European headquarters to Budapest from Vienna, Austrian daily Die Presse reported Monday, citing a spokeswoman for Nokia Austria. The Austrian headquarters employs 60 people, some of whom will be employed in Budapest. The relocation comes as the company seeks to streamline their operations and return to profit after a string of losses amid falling shares in the mobile phone market. Nokia has been cutting headcount, globally, since 2011, with the aim of eliminating 17,000 jobs. They have already laid off 2,300 of 4,400 staff at their Hungarian plant.
Bank of America Corporation (NYSE:BAC): According to the Wall Street Journal, as a result of a new law, some lawyers believe that banks could publish research on Independent Public Offerings, the day of an IPO, or even before the contract is completed. They will no longer have to wait 40 days after the deal is made. However, about 20 companies covered by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups, or JOBS Act, which applies to corporations with less than $1 billion in annual revenue, have seen research published 25 days after their offerings. The choice of a 25 day “quiet period,” after an IPO, isn’t a coincidence, but the result of an informal agreement reached by large Wall Street banks who are fearful of potential legal actions arising from the JOBS Act. Shares of Bank of America Corporation are trading at 0.92% higher today.
