Recasting of Nokia quarterly and full year 2010 and first, second and third quarter 2011 results
The historical results set forth below for each quarter and the full year of 2010 as well as the first, second and third quarter of 2011 are reported results recasted (on an unaudited basis) for comparability purposes according to Nokia's four reportable segments effective from October 1, 2011:
- Smart Devices (within Devices & Services)
- Mobile Phones (within Devices & Services)
- Location & Commerce
- Nokia Siemens Networks
The key financial performance measures provided for these segments include net sales, gross margin as well as an additional measure of profit. For Smart Devices and Mobile Phones, we present these segments' profit contribution, which consists of revenues less these segments' own costs as well as their directly assignable and allocated costs. For Location & Commerce and Nokia Siemens Networks, we present operating profit.
The most significant amounts transferred relate to operating expenses which were previously in Devices & Services Other - specifically, those relating to social location services operations - to Location & Commerce. In order to consistently reflect where the economic value of location services is created, the recast also impacted Cost of Sales by reportable segment. Amounts previously in Devices & Services Other Cost of Sales and Smart Devices Cost of Sales were transferred to Location & Commerce Cost of Sales. As a consequence of the higher value add performed in Location & Commerce, the recasted numbers also reflect a higher internal transfer price, which impacted Location & Commerce Net Sales positively and Smart Devices Cost of Sales negatively. The internal transfer price represents revenue Net Sales to Location & Commerce and Cost of Sales to Smart Devices. Location & Commerce will be responsible for developing the services going forward whereas the services will continue to be delivered to customers and consumers by Devices & Services in combination with our devices. In order to consistently reflect deferral of services revenue over the service period, the recast also impacted Location & Commerce revenue and corporate Eliminations.
