Reuters reported in May that Nokia was planning to sell the ASN division, which is one of the top suppliers of undersea cable networks in the world and is valued at 800 million euros ($ 944 million).

“We are still in the middle of our strategic review which we have set for ASN, so there’s no update,” Suri told a conference call.

Some analysts had expected a decision on the unit alongside the release of Nokia’s interim report released on Thursday.

The unit was bought by Nokia last year as part of its 15.6 billion-euro ($ 17 billion) acquisition of Franco-American rival Alcatel-Lucent.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise is said to be looking to sell its software division, which would include the business from its disastrous acquisition of Autonomy in 2011, according to news reports.

The enterprise IT company that emerged from the breakup of Hewlett-Packard has been restructuring its operations recently, including a $ 8.5 billion deal announced in May to spin off and merge its enterprise services business with CSC. A sale of the software business would leave the company focused largely on servers, networking, storage, business critical systems and technology services.
