Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) layoffs are a hot topic on Thursday as reports claim that the telecommunications giant is preparing to cut jobs.

According to a company spokesperson, Ericsson is going to reduce its headcount by more than 200 employees. These job cuts are coming for workers based in its Chinese research and development division.

Investors will note that these layoffs were announced shortly after the release of Ericsson’s first-quarter earnings report. The company warned of headwinds in this latest report.

Here’s what Ericsson CEO Börje Ekholm said in that report.

“We expect a further decline in the RAN market, at least through the end of this year, as customers remain cautious with their investments and the pace of investment in India continues to normalize. Dell’Oro estimates the global RAN equipment market will decline by -4% in 2024, which may prove optimistic.”
