Nokia Siemens Networks continues to weigh future options

Nokia and Siemens may have not reached a final deal to sell a controlling interest in Nokia Siemens Networks, but that does not mean there aren't other suitors interested in the company.

According to a Wall Street Journal report, one of the options that both Nokia and Siemens are considering right now is investing more money into NSN.

The report added that ongoing discussions with the Gores Group and Platinum Equity LLC might not result in a deal. Earlier this month, talks with private equity groups KKR and TPG failed to result in a deal either.

However, Monika Langendorf, a spokeswoman for Siemens, said the company is looking at "multiple options" and that "negotiations are continuing" with potential buyers of a major stake in the joint venture.
