According to a report in the main Finnish daily newspaper Helsingin Sanomat, Nokia's chairman of the board Risto Siilasmaa and former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop have discussed reducing Elop's 19-million-euro departure package, but this may not be possible because Elop is seeking to divorce his wife and would have to pay half of the sum to his wife. 

Siilasmaa has proposed a compensation reduction or a waiver in whole.
