Alvarion delays Q4 earnings release, in talks to sell activity

February 20, 2013

TEL AVIV, Feb 20 (Reuters) - Wireless broadband technology

firm Alvarion said on Wednesday it would postpone the

release of its fourth-quarter earnings due to ongoing

negotiations to sell its licensed carrier business.

The earnings, which were due to be released on Wednesday,

will now be published on March 6.

"There is no assurance that such negotiations will result in

the execution of a definitive agreement," Israel-based Alvarion

said in a statement.

The company, which has struggled to gain a foothold in the

long-range wireless Internet sector with its WiMax products, had

a loss excluding one-off items of 12 cents a share in the third

quarter, compared with earnings of 1 cent a share a year

earlier.
