As experienced corporate carve-out acquirers, our priority is to partner with Nokia to ensure a seamless transition and operational continuity for all customers.”

Under the terms of the agreement, Lumine Group will acquire Nokia’s Device Management and Service Management Platform businesses for a total purchase price of up to €185 million euros, which includes a contingent consideration of up to €35 million euros based on the performance of the business during the first year following close. This transaction is expected to close in Q1 2024 and is subject to customary closing conditions.
