Ericsson Considering New Clauses To Avoid RCom-Like Situations

Swedish telecom gear maker Ericsson is considering tweaking provisions in business deals to avoid situations like those it is facing with Reliance Communications Ltd.

The company sued RCom and its promoter Anil Ambani to recover dues of about Rs 1,500 crore, of which it managed to receive only Rs 550 crore.

"We think fairness sort of came true in the end. But of course, as we sell new deals...we try to avoid those things. But it is hard to tell because who could have seen that coming. That was a tough period," Peter Laurin, senior vice president and head of business area managed services at Ericsson said.
