Nortel will not report its quarterly sales figures and financial information on Wednesday as previously scheduled.

Nortel said Tuesday it was pushing back the report to Aug. 8.

“The Company has decided to change its reporting date to more closely align with the filing of its second quarter of 2005 Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (“Q2 2005 Form 10-Q”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission,” Nortel said in a statement.

The delay is the latest in a series for Nortel, which has been battling financial irregularities for nearly two years.
