Nortel Networks, the subsidiary
operational arm of telecom group Nortel, has reported a smaller first-quarter

The company which has just appointed KPMG
as its auditor, said sales had also grown as it filed its latest quarterly
report with the SEC.

executives were charged with repeated acts of accounting fraud by the
Securities and Exchange Commission in March
Nortel Networks recorded a loss of $103m (?52m) , or 23 cents a share, in the
first quarter of the year, compared to a loss of $171mi n the same period a year
