Shares in Ericsson (ERICb.ST) rose on Thursday after Assa Abloy (ASSAb.ST) said CEO Johan Molin may step down next year, fanning speculation he could be the telecom gear maker's next chairman. Molin, one of Sweden's most highly regarded top executives, told Reuters that he had not been asked to become chairman of Ericsson, but he did not eliminate the idea. It's not on the cards for me, at least not today," Molin told Reuters by phone when asked if he ruled out such a move.
