Nortel completes latest restatement

Nortel released their 2005 financials Friday and completed more restatements of prior years’ results. The restatements related to revenue recognition and decreased revenues and net income because the revenue should’ve been booked in different periods.

Maybe this will mark a turning point for the Canadian communications equipment company and they can retain (or regain) their position as a market leader. The fact they released these disappointing results on a Friday afternoon is of course a little trick to reduce their media exposure. Not everyone is fooled!
