Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) has announced that it has successfully closed a transaction with China Huaxin Post & Telecommunication Economy Development Center (“China Huaxin”) for the divestment of its Enterprise division.

“As a ‘new’ company our core mission is to help companies transform the way people communicate, harnessing capabilities offered by ever smarter devices and new use models. We see success as creating long term value and customer relevancy by delivering business outcome to customers and partners through technology and business innovations,” commented Michel Emelianoff, Chief Executive Officer, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise.
