From the Paper:

"The main weakness of Motorola is a remarkable decline in profitability. The indicators of 2006 witness that there is obvious decline in profitability compared with earlier years. Operating profit of Motorola in the year of 2006 was $4 billion, which indicates a decrease of 11.1% over the previous year. Net profit demonstrated decrease of 20% if compared to 2005. Operating profit margin and net profit margin have also decreased from 13.1% and 13% respectively in the year of 2005 to 9.5% and 8.5% respectively in the year of 2006. In case such decline tendency continues, company's growth plans and balance sheet will be affected. Company's decline in profitability was mostly resulted by decline in profitability of its network and enterprise segment, which demonstrated 22% in operating earnings due to unfavorable macroeconomic climate. Operating earnings of this segment reduced by $418 million from $1,939 million in the year of 2005 to $1,521 million in the year of 2006. If such tendencies will continue in future, company's growth will be slowed. "
