During the related earnings call, the Company revealed that it had identified 42 long-term service contracts to date with total annual sales of almost $1 billion that Ericsson would exit, renegotiate, or transform. On this news, Ericsson ADS price fell $1.21 per share, or 16.62%, to close at $6.07 per share on July 18, 2017.
