How Have Nokia’s Revenues Trended And What’s The Outlook For Q2

  • Revenues grew modestly from around EUR 4.9 billion in Q1’18 to about EUR 5 billion in Q1’19.
  • We expect revenues to grow to about EUR 5.4 billion by Q2’19

What Are The Key Drivers Of Nokia’s Revenues?

Key Driver 1: Networks

  • This segment sells radio access network and related equipment and accounts for over 75% of Nokia’s total revenue.
  • Revenue growth remained sluggish during Q1’19 as growth in IP routing was offset by weakness in the mobile and fixed access space.
  • Things could improve slightly in Q2, driven by 5G deployments.
  • Nokia had 36 commercial 5G wins as of April 2019 and it’s likely that this will be the biggest driver of the company’s results over 2019.

Key Driver 2: Software

  • Nokia’s software business accounted for about 11% of revenues in Q1.
  • While software revenues remained almost flat YoY in Q1, it’s possible that sales could improve slightly over Q2.

Key Driver 3: Nokia Technologies

  • Nokia technologies primarily licenses the company’s intellectual property. The segment accounted for about 7% of total revenues in Q1.
  • Revenues could improve slightly over Q2.

Calculating Nokia’s EPS

  • We expect Nokia to just about break-even over Q2 2019.
