DEREGISTRATION OF SECURITIES
 
Nortel Networks Corporation (the “Company”), Nortel Networks Limited (“NNL”) and Nortel Networks Inc. (“NNI” and, together with the Company and NNL, the “Registrants”) filed a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (Registration Nos. 333-146273, 333-146273-01, and 333-146273-02) on September 24, 2007, as amended on December 21, 2007 (the “Registration Statement”), pursuant to the terms of a registration rights agreement filed as Exhibit 10.2 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K dated March 28, 2007 (the “Registration Rights Agreement”). The Registration Statement became effective on December 21, 2007. The Registration Statement registered the resale by certain selling securityholders named in the prospectus included therein or in related prospectus supplements of up to $575,000,000 principal amount of the Company’s 1.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2012 (the “2012 Notes”) and up to $575,000,000 principal amount of the Company’s 2.125% Convertible Senior Notes due 2014 (the “2014 Notes,” and together with the 2012 Notes, the “Notes”), the related guarantees by NNL and initially NNI (the “Guarantees”) and the Company’s common shares issuable upon conversion of the Notes (the “Common Shares,” and together with the Notes and Guarantees, the “Registrable Securities”).
 
Pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, the obligation of the Registrants to keep the Registration Statement effective has expired. In accordance with the Registration Rights Agreement and in accordance with the Registrant’s undertaking under Item 512(a)(3) of Regulation S-K, the Registrants are filing this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to the Registration Statement to remove from registration all previously registered and unsold Registrable Securities.
