Siemens may make as many as 3000 further job cuts to reduce costs, adding to the 10,000 it said previously would go this year.
Responding to German press reports that 3000 more jobs were at risk, Sabine Metzner, a spokeswoman at Siemens, said that the cuts were just one option under review.
"Those 3000 job cuts are one scenario of many that are being discussed now," she said. "A decision on further cost-cutting measures, including job cuts and divestments, is expected in the coming weeks."
Siemens said in July that it would cut around a tenth of its business services department, representing some 1600 jobs.
In May the firm slashed 2000 jobs from its ICN fixed-line telecoms equipment division. Previously this year, Siemens had axed 2600 contracts and 3500 staff from its networking unit.
