Nortel Loses $170M in Q4

TORONTO, Canada -- Nortel* Networks Corporation announced its results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2011. Results were prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in U.S. dollars.

Nortel's consolidated results include the results of operations and financial position of Nortel Networks Corporation, its principal operating subsidiary Nortel Networks Limited, and their subsidiaries in the Asia, CALA, and EMEA regions other than those included in the U.S. or EMEA deconsolidated subsidiaries. As of June 1, 2010, and October 1, 2010, the EMEA Subsidiaries and U.S. Subsidiaries, respectively, were deconsolidated and accounted for under the cost method of accounting. In the context of the Creditor Protection Proceedings, Nortel continues to evaluate the method of accounting for all of its subsidiaries. As a result of and following the divestitures of our businesses, only the residual contracts not transferred with the businesses are included in Nortel's financial results. As a result of the business sales, Nortel currently has one reportable segment, being the consolidated entity, as its chief operating decision maker reviews financial and operating results on that basis.

Our historical financial performance is not indicative of our future financial performance.

Nortel Networks Ltd.
