Samsung denies interest in Nokia

HELSINKI (Reuters) - Samsung Electronics (005930.KS) denied it was interested in acquiring Nokia NOK1V.HE, sending shares in the Finnish mobile phone company down 2 percent.

    Nokia shares rose 6 percent last Friday on speculation of a possible buyout offer.

    “Such reports are purely speculative and are not true,” the company said.
