    - Q2 Net Earnings of US$366 Million, US$0.08 per Common Share on a Diluted Basis(x)

    - Q2 Cash Balance of US$1.90 Billion

    Nortel Networks(xx) Corporation (NYSE: NT; TSX: NT) today announced that it and its principal operating subsidiary Nortel Networks Limited (NNL) have reported their unaudited financial results for the second quarter of 2006 prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. All dollar amounts included are in US dollars.

    Second Quarter 2006 Results

    ---------------------------

    Revenues were US$2.74 billion for the second quarter of 2006 compared to US$2.62 billion for the second quarter of 2005 and US$2.38 billion for the first quarter of 2006. The Company reported net earnings in the second quarter of 2006 of US$366 million, or US$0.08 per common share on a diluted basis, compared to a net loss of US$33 million, or (US$0.01) per common share on a diluted basis, in the second quarter of 2005 and a net loss of US$167 million, or (US$0.04) per common share on a diluted basis, in the first quarter of 2006.

    Net earnings in the second quarter of 2006 included a shareholder litigation recovery of US$510 million reflecting a mark-to-market adjustment of the share portion of the global class action settlement, special charges of US$45 million for restructuring and a loss of US$10 million on the sale of assets. Net loss in the second quarter of 2005 included special charges of US$92 million related to restructuring activities and US$11 million of costs related to the sale of businesses and assets. Net loss in the first quarter of 2006 included a benefit of US$35 million in gains on the sale of businesses and assets and a shareholder litigation expense of US$19 million reflecting a mark-to-market adjustment.

    "Our second quarter performance underscores both the challenges and good progress we are making with Nortel's transformation. On the plus side we saw strong order growth of 22% and increased sales momentum but gross margin  was up only modestly and not at the 40% target we have set for ourselves,"  said Mike Zafirovski, president and chief executive officer, Nortel.  "We remain intensely focused on delivering improved financial performance and there's solid traction on significant business transformation  initiatives including the go-to-market supporting our Enterprise business,  the development of our Services business, our strategic alliance with  Microsoft, and across the board cost management programs. Together, these  efforts are enabling us to deliver greater customer value and  substantially enhance Nortel's competitiveness."

    Breakdown of Second Quarter 2006 Revenues

    Mobility and Converged Core Networks revenues were US$1.59 billion, an increase of 7 percent compared with the year-ago quarter and an increase of 12-percent sequentially. Enterprise Solutions and Packet Networks revenues were US$1.07 billion, a decrease of 1 percent compared with the year-ago quarter and an increase of 23 percent sequentially. Deferred revenues decreased sequentially by US$14 million and backlog increased by approximately US$194-million.

    Gross margin

    Gross margin was 39 percent of revenue in the second quarter of 2006, primarily impacted by geographic and product mix, and competitive pricing pressures. This compares to gross margin of 43 percent for the second quarter of 2005 and 38 percent for the first quarter of 2006. Compared to the second quarter of 2005, gross margin was impacted primarily by pricing pressures and unfavourable product mix, which was partially offset by higher sales volumes.

    Selling, general and administrative (SG&A)

    SG&A expenses were US$596 million in the second quarter of 2006, reflecting incremental costs related to our acquisition of PEC and the LG-Nortel joint venture and unfavorable foreign exchange impacts, offset by cost containment initiatives. This compares to SG&A expenses of US$588 million for the second quarter of 2005, and US$595 million for the first quarter of 2006.

    Research and development (R&D)

    R&D expenses were US$489 million in the second quarter of 2006, reflecting increased investment in targeted product areas, the consolidation of the LG-Nortel joint venture and unfavorable foreign exchange impacts, offset by the favorable impact of the savings associated with our 2004 restructuring program. This compares to US$488 million for the second quarter of 2005 and US$478-million for the first quarter of 2006.

    Special Charges

    Special charges in the second quarter of 2006 of US$45 million included US$43-million for the restructuring program announced June 27, 2006.

    Other income (expense) - net

    Other income (expense) - net was net income of US$51 million for the second quarter of 2006, which primarily related to investment income of US$29 million and foreign exchange gains of US$16 million.

    Cash

    Cash balance at the end of the second quarter of 2006 was US$1.90 billion, down from US$2.70 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2006. This decrease in cash was primarily driven by an outflow of US$580 million (US$575 million plus accrued interest of US$5 million) deposited into escrow on June 1, 2006 pursuant to the global class action settlement (pending satisfactory completion of all conditions) and US$150 million for the repayment at maturity of the outstanding aggregate principal amount of the 7.40% Notes due June 15, 2006 and a cash outflow from operations of US$108 million, partially offset by cash proceeds of US$70 million related to the Flextronics transfer.

    On July 5, 2006, Nortel announced the closing of the offering of US$2-billion aggregate principal amount of senior notes and that it has used US$1.3-billion of the proceeds to prepay the US$1.3 billion one-year credit facility that it entered into in February 2006.

    First Half 2006 Results

    For the first half of 2006, revenues were US$5.13 billion compared to US$5.01-billion for the same period in 2005. The Company reported net earnings for the first half of 2006 of US$199 million, or US$0.05 per common share on a diluted basis, compared to a net loss of US$137 million, or (US$0.03) per common share on a diluted basis, for the same period in 2005.

    Net earnings in the first half of 2006 included a shareholder litigation recovery of US$491 million reflecting a mark-to-market adjustment of the share portion of the global class action settlement, special charges of US$50 million related to restructuring activities and a benefit of US$25 million related to the sale of businesses and assets. The first half 2005 results included special charges of US$106 million related to restructuring activities and US$33-million of costs related to the sale of businesses and assets.

    Outlook(a)

    ----------

    Commenting on the Company's financial expectations, Peter Currie, executive vice president and chief financial officer, Nortel, said, "For the full year 2006, we continue to expect strong revenue momentum for the rest of 2006, resulting in high single digit growth for the full year 2006 compared to 2005, gross margin to be around 40% as a percentage of revenue and operating expenses to be flat to up slightly from 2005, with foreign exchange and growth related expenses offsetting productivity and efficiencies. For the third quarter of 2006, we expect revenue growth in excess of 10 percent compared to the third quarter of 2005 and gross margin and operating expenses to be in-line with our full year guidance."

    Certain statements in this press release may contain words such as "could", "expects", "may", "anticipates", "believes", "intends", "estimates", "plans", "envisions", "seeks" and other similar language and are considered forward-looking statements or information under applicable securities legislation. These statements are based on Nortel's current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections about the operating environment, economies and markets in which Nortel operates. These statements are subject to important assumptions, risks and uncertainties, which are difficult to predict and the actual outcome may be materially different. Nortel has made various assumptions in the preparation of its financial outlook in this press release, including the following company specific assumptions: no further negative impact to Nortel's results of operations, financial condition and liquidity arising from Nortel's restatements of its financial results; Nortel's prices increasing at or above the rate of price increases for similar products in geographic regions in which Nortel sells its products; increase in sales to Nortel's enterprise customers and wireless service provider customers in the Asia Pacific region as a result of Nortel's joint venture with LG Electronics Inc.; anticipated growth in sales to enterprise customers, including the full year impact to Nortel's revenues from its acquisition of PEC Solutions, Inc., (now Nortel Government Solutions Incorporated); improvement in Nortel's product costs due to favorable supplier pricing substantially offset by higher costs associated with initial customer deployments in emerging markets; cost reductions resulting from the completion of Nortel's significant financial restatements and 2004 restructuring plan; a moderate increase in costs over 2005 related to investments in the finance organization and remedial measures related to Nortel's material weaknesses in internal controls; increased employee costs relative to expected cost of living adjustments and employee bonuses offset by a significant reduction in executive recruitment and severance costs incurred in 2005; and the effective execution of Nortel's strategy. Nortel has also made certain macroeconomic and general industry assumptions in the preparation of its financial guidance including: a modest growth rate in the gross domestic product of global economies in the range of 3.2% which is unchanged from the growth rate in 2005; global service provider capital expenditures in 2006 reflecting flat to low single digit growth as compared to low double digit growth in 2005; a general increase in demand for broadband access, data traffic and wireless infrastructure and services in emerging markets with the rate of growth in developed markets beginning to slow; and a moderate impact as a result of expected industry consolidation among service providers in various geographic regions, particularly in North America and EMEA. The above assumptions, although considered reasonable by Nortel at the date of this press release, may prove to be inaccurate and consequently Nortel's actual results could differ materially from its expectations set out in this press release.

    Further, actual results or events could differ materially from those contemplated in forward-looking statements as a result of the following (i) risks and uncertainties relating to Nortel's restatements and related matters including: Nortel's most recent restatement and two previous restatements of its financial statements and related events; the negative impact on Nortel and NNL of their most recent restatement and delay in filing their financial statements and related periodic reports; legal judgments, fines, penalties or settlements, or any substantial regulatory fines or other penalties or sanctions, related to the ongoing regulatory and criminal investigations of Nortel in the US and Canada; any significant pending civil litigation actions not encompassed by Nortel's global class action settlement; any substantial cash payment and/or significant dilution of Nortel's existing equity positions resulting from the approval of its global class action settlement, or if such global class action settlement is not approved, any larger settlements or awards of damages in respect of such class actions; any unsuccessful remediation of Nortel's material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting resulting in an inability to report Nortel's results of operations and financial condition accurately and in a timely manner; the time required to implement Nortel's remedial measures; Nortel's inability to access, in its current form, its shelf registration filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and Nortel's below investment grade credit rating and any further adverse effect on its credit rating due to Nortel's restatements of its financial statements; any adverse affect on Nortel's business and market price of its publicly traded securities arising from continuing negative publicity related to Nortel's restatements; Nortel's potential inability to attract or retain the personnel necessary to achieve its business objectives; any breach by Nortel of the continued listing requirements of the NYSE or TSX causing the NYSE and/or the TSX to commence suspension or delisting procedures; (ii) risks and uncertainties relating to Nortel's business including: yearly and quarterly fluctuations of Nortel's operating results; reduced demand and pricing pressures for its products due to global economic conditions, significant competition, competitive pricing practice, cautious capital spending by customers, increased industry consolidation, rapidly changing technologies, evolving industry standards, frequent new product introductions and short product life cycles, and other trends and industry characteristics affecting the telecommunications industry; any material and adverse affects on Nortel's performance if its expectations regarding market demand for particular products prove to be wrong or because of certain barriers in its efforts to expand internationally; any reduction in Nortel's operating results and any related volatility in the market price of its publicly traded securities arising from any decline in its gross margin, or fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; any negative developments associated with Nortel's supply contract and contract manufacturing agreements including as a result of using a sole supplier for key optical networking solutions components, and any defects or errors in Nortel's current or planned products; any negative impact to Nortel of its failure to achieve its business transformation objectives; additional valuation allowances for all or a portion of its deferred tax assets; Nortel's failure to protect its intellectual property rights, or any adverse judgments or settlements arising out of disputes regarding intellectual property; changes in regulation of the Internet and/or other aspects of the industry; Nortel's failure to successfully operate or integrate its strategic acquisitions, or failure to consummate or succeed with its strategic alliances; any negative effect of Nortel's failure to evolve adequately its financial and managerial control and reporting systems and processes, manage and grow its business, or create an effective risk management strategy; and (iii) risks and uncertainties relating to Nortel's liquidity, financing arrangements and capital including: the impact of Nortel's most recent restatement and two previous restatements of its financial statements; any inability of Nortel to manage cash flow fluctuations to fund working capital requirements or achieve its business objectives in a timely manner or obtain additional sources of funding; high levels of debt, limitations on Nortel capitalizing on business opportunities because of credit facility covenants, or on obtaining additional secured debt pursuant to the provisions of indentures governing certain of Nortel's public debt issues and the provisions of its credit facilities; any increase of restricted cash requirements for Nortel if it is unable to secure alternative support for obligations arising from certain normal course business activities, or any inability of Nortel's subsidiaries to provide it with sufficient funding; any negative effect to Nortel of the need to make larger defined benefit plans contributions in the future or exposure to customer credit risks or inability of customers to fulfill payment obligations under customer financing arrangements; any negative impact on Nortel's ability to make future acquisitions, raise capital, issue debt and retain employees arising from stock price volatility and further declines in the market price of Nortel's publicly traded securities, or any future share consolidation resulting in a lower total market capitalization or adverse effect on the liquidity of Nortel's common shares. For additional information with respect to certain of these and other factors, see Nortel's Annual Report on Form 10-K/A, Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and other securities filings with the SEC. Unless otherwise required by applicable securities laws, Nortel disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
