On October 1, 2014, Alcatel-Lucent announced that it completed the sale of its Enterprise business. This begins a new era for Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, one that provides us the means to reach our full potential through growth and investments.
Today, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is a new company. We are an independent, stable, mid-sized business with strong existing assets and 2700 talented employees who possess the energy and passion of a startup. We enter this new era with a global network of experienced business partners who sell and support our proven communications technologies to a growing base of customers.
Being a “new” company does not change our heritage or our mission: We remain a French company headquartered outside Paris; with our partners, we co-create the personalized connected experience to deliver tangible outcomes to our customers and their end-users. We continue to be fully devoted to the enterprise communications market, 100% focused on innovation and customer satisfaction.
Competing in the enterprise communications market requires investment and critical mass. This is now possible because of an investor, Huaxin an investment company, who is fully committed to the success of our business. This new partnership will enable us to achieve our objective of being a significant competitor in the markets we address.
We will continue to invest and innovate in our core communications and networking markets where we have established customer confidence and analyst recognition.
Our growth will be guided by two priorities that keep customers at the heart of our strategy. First, our focus on business value becomes even stronger and will be defined and measured by the number of positive business outcomes. As a strategic business partner to our customers, our mission is to provide solutions and services that enable tangible benefits to people and businesses. Secondly, we continue to grow our market share and leadership positions in select markets ensuring our longevity.
Our indirect sales model and investment in research and development remains unchanged. We are committed, more than ever, to helping businesses embrace new uses and models through solutions for next-generation communication platforms and intelligent networks, from the office to the cloud.
