Ericsson: Ericsson appoints heads of newly announced Business Units

* Arun Bansal appointed Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit Radio

* Anders Lindblad appointed Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit
Cloud&IP
* Both appointments effective July 1, 2014

Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) today appointed heads of the recently announced new
business units, business unit Radio and business unit Cloud&IP. The two units
are formed by a split of the current business unit Networks in a move to
accelerate transformation and support growth.

Both Bansal and Lindblad are tested leaders with long and solid technical and
business experience and extensive experience from key markets. Arun Bansal,
currently Head of Ericsson's region South East Asia&Oceania, is appointed
Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit Radio. Bansal has
successfully applied his skills in technology and business across a number of
markets and functions during his close to 20 years in Ericsson.

Anders Lindblad, currently Head of Ericsson's region Middle East, is appointed
Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit Cloud&IP. In his
international career Lindblad has held a variety of positions in business
development and commercial operation across countries and regions during his
17 years with Ericsson.

Hans Vestberg, President and CEO of Ericsson, said, "Both Arun and Anders are
strong leaders with experience from large organizations. They have been
successful in driving growth in very competitive environments. We are
committed to maintain our leadership in radio technology while also building
a strong position in the cloud and IP space as the market evolves to 5G. I am
confident they have the right backgrounds and experience to lead the two new
business units with their different business logics and growth
opportunities."

Arun Bansal said, "I look forward to ensure that our radio portfolio continues
to provide a competitive advantage in all market conditions. We will continue
to provide customers around the world with high performance technology and
solutions."

Anders Lindblad said, "Virtualization and cloud will fundamentally change the
networks and ultimately the industry. Our leading position in core networks
will enable us to also become a significant player in cloud and IP. I am
excited to get the opportunity to lead this strategically important work in a
transforming market."

Arun Bansal and Anders Lindblad will remain members of Ericsson's Global
Leadership Team. Successors to them in their current roles will be announced
separately.

The two new organizations will be effective on July 1, 2014 with the BU
Management team and organizational structure in place.
