Microsoft Corp has said it aims to get its loss-making Nokia phone unit to break even within two years, Reuters has reported. The company plans to take $1bn in costs out of the Nokia operation and stop its losses by fiscal 2016, which ends in June 2016, following massive job cuts announced last week, said Microsoft’s chief financial officer. Nokia, which Microsoft bought in April for $7.2bn, added almost $2bn to Microsoft’s quarterly revenue, but posted an operating loss of $692m, which included some one-time costs.
