HELSINKI (Reuters) – HMD Global, the Finnish company with a licence to sell Nokia-branded phones, said on Monday that it had raised $100 million (74.6 million pounds) of funding that it aims to spend to boost growth.

HMD, which sold around 70 million Nokia phones and generated sales of 1.8 billion euros (£1.6 billion) in its first year 2017, said it was planning to expand its Nokia smartphone range strongly and to double sales channels in key markets during 2018.

New investors include DMJ Asia Investment Opportunity Ltd and Foxconn’s subsidiary FIH Mobile.
