    Alcatel-Lucent (ALU): Q4 net loss €1.37B, €0.60 per share; revenue -1.3% to €4.1B. Takes €1.41B charge "related to the depreciation of goodwill and fixed assets." Swings to FY net loss of €1.37B from net profit of €1.1B in 2011, with revenue -5.7% to €14.45B. Won't pay dividend for 2012. As expected, CEO Ben Verwaayen will step down when a successor is found; Verwaayen has been in the job for 4 1/2 years but he's been unable to turn the company around, with the stock price falling 70% during his tenure.

    Nokia (NOK) proposes paying no dividend for the first time in 143 years. It's not a great surprise given that the company's been slashing costs amid cratering revenues and major losses. One might ask, what took them so long? Shares +1.9% premarket.
