HELSINKI – A deal to purchase Elcoteq’s subsidiary in Russia fell through after Flextronics failed to obtain approval from Russian competition authorities. 
In May, a Russian paper reported Flextronics had failed to provide data about its beneficiaries. "As these conditions were not met by the deadline stated in the agreement, Flextronics decided to use its right to terminate the transaction," Elcoteq said in a statement.
As part of the original agreement, Flextronics has given Elcoteq a nonrefundable payment of 1 million euros ($1.56 million).
Elcoteq agreed to sell its troubled ZAO Elcoteq subsidiary in St. Petersburg to Flextronics in February as part of a broad restructuring plan.
Elcoteq is in talks with other parties to purchase the plant.

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
