Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) is reportedly considering using its fast-growing Internet-routing business and/or its massive patent portfolio as collateral for up to €1B of loans. The money will give the company time to implement €1.25B of cost cuts as it looks to turn around its fortunes. Other options ALU is exploring include asset sales and issuing new stock.

    Today there is so much demand for communications, cell phones, videos, wi-fi, yet ALU keeps going down and down. What is it, bad management, they cannot seem to bring it under control.
