The memorandum of understanding will also see Britain backing CGN's plans to build a nuclear reactor in the U.K. and play a "supporting role" in operating it, according to people familiar with the matter.
"If there is no majority agreement (with unions) the social plan won't be accepted, because the law now gives the state the responsibility so to act," Ayrault said, without specifying what the consequences would be.
Exc will be taken out by so or ed. Exc has a big target on it’s back right now, and we need consolidation in this sector.

All businesses should all get behind and support Obama care and drop their employee health care so more people will sigh up for Obama care. Everyone in Washington is saying this plan will even be better than the company plan.

Chambers also said he plans to enter the base station market that is the bread and butter of Ericsson, Nokia and Alcatel (ALU).
“We do everything in wireless except for the radio,” says Chambers. “Now, we have a creative idea there, and I’ve just funded our first startup to see if that works.” He wouldn’t name the startup.

I’m looking at selling my ALU on the run up in price and buying Nokia and going with a pure play on mobile.
My big question is what was the reason that MSFT did not just buy all of Nokia. MSFT just bought the hand set business and left the wireless unit and the NSN unit on the table.

Did MSFT just not see any value in the wireless unit and NSN?
