    Exane BNP Paribas analyst, Alexander Peterc, said in a note reported by Bloomberg: "Alcatel-Lucent is now a balance sheet story. This is a first signal to shareholders ahead of a significant dilution of equity holders. Asset disposals would, likewise, strongly diminish Alcatel's future cash generation."

    Reverse-splitting a stock has some other benefits, as well. There’s a lot of institutional money out there that can’t buy shares with face values below a certain threshold. Additionally, it can help tamp down volatility, since it’s much harder for algos and day traders to whip around big chunks of stock that go for, say, $150 a share rather than a buck-fifty a share.

    In the case of Alcatel-Lucent, if the company effected a 20-1 reverse split, a stock that has a nominal value of $1.20 would suddenly list at a respectable-sounding $24. The number of shares outstanding would shrink by a factor of 20, but — importantly — the market cap, fundamentals and prospects wouldn't change a whit.

    Still, it would sure look a lot better — and it could help with demand, too.

    Don't let pumpers fool you. This is a very real possibility.

      Commenting on the progress being made on controlling expense, Verwaayen said: "We've done a good job on costs--we've promised ourselves that the cost structure of the company will be fundamentally changed and we're in the process of doing that," he told Bloomberg. "The speed of our cost cutting will also have an impact on our cash position."
