Moto reshuffles ahead of gloomy 2Q

As Motorola gears up to deliver another gloomy financial report on Thursday, the company moved to realign its operations to try and give it a fighting chance in the market.

As of the second quarter of 2007 the beleaguered company has morphed into three business segments: Mobile Devices, which designs, manufactures, sells and services handsets, software and accessory products, and licenses intellectual property; Home and Networks Mobility, which designs, manufactures, sells and services video systems such as set-top boxes, ADSL and cable modems, and cellular infrastructure; and Enterprise Mobility Solutions, which handles radio, voice and data communications products and systems for private networks, and end to end enterprise mobility offerings.

As a result of the business realignment the Good Technology mobile messaging business will shift to the Enterprise Mobility Solutions segment.

Later on Thursday Moto will report its second quarter results, the sales forecast for which was revised down form $9.4bn to between $8.6-8.7bn, with the firm making another loss in the quarter. Moto no longer expects its mobile division to make a profit this year.
