STOCKHOLM--Swedish network equipment vendor Ericsson AB (ERIC) said Wednesday it has cut 1,399 jobs in Sweden as part of a previously announced restructuring, leading to costs of around SEK1.5 billion that will hit its first quarter results.


-On November 7, 2012, Ericsson informed its employees about a change in operations in Sweden, which also included reduction of positions covering all job areas.

-Ericsson in Sweden has reduced its operations by 1,399 positions by adapting the organization, in cooperation with the unions. This has resulted in 919 employees being given notice.

-The majority of the reductions are in Ericsson's Networks unit, but all parts of the organization in Sweden are to some extent affected, impacting all its Swedish sites except Falun, Hudiksvall, Kalmar and Katrineholm.

-The company originally expected to cut around 1,550 jobs.

-At 0819 GMT shares traded 0.7% higher at 81.85.
