had a comprehensive sales process with Finnish and foreign investors, and we are very happy with this result. As mentioned before, owning real estate is not part of the core business of Nokia and, when good opportunities arise, we are willing to let go of this type of non-core assets. Naturally, we will continue to operate in our main building for a long time.
