In 1953, the world’s technology leader Ericsson signed one of its first licensing agreement on cooperation with the then Croatian factory “Nikola Tesla.” This collaboration evolved into a proprietary relationship, when the Croatian Fund for Privatization and Ericsson signed an Agreement on selling 49.07 percent of Nikola Tesla shares in March 1995.
