Nortel Networks posts $138 million net loss in Q1

Nortel Networks said its first quarter revenue rose 11 percent to $2.76 billion, largely due to deferred revenue from an LG Electronics joint venture that had been projected to end in the wrap up in the second quarter. Nortel said losses totaled $138 million, or 28 cents a share, up from $103 million, or 23 cents a share a year ago. Excluding an $88 million restructuring charge, the company said losses narrowed to $35 million.
