ZTE Records RMB100 Billion Contract Sales in 2010

The fastest-growing vendor in the global telecom sector

(PresseBox) (Shenzhen, ) ZTE Corporation ("ZTE") (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, today announced that in 2010 it secured contract sales worth up to RMB100 billion and a growth rate of 26%, making ZTE the fastest-growing vendor in the global telecom sector.

ZTE made this milestone achievement despite the current economic turmoil. The global market and domestic market in China both experienced a deterioration in 2010, with an annual decline in telecom investment in each market by 3% and 14% respectively.

According to a Frost & Sullivan report, "Insights on 2010 Market Performance", ZTE has the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) among the top vendors in the global market. It recorded a CAGR of 28.01% between 2008-2010 and 37.48% between 2006-2010.

ZTE has achieved 29% growth of its contract sales in overseas markets especially in Europe and North America. A growing number of leading players such as France Telecom, América Móvil, MTN and Softbank embark on co-operation with ZTE and appreciate the firm's commitment to excellent delivery. ZTE's terminal products -- Blade, Racer and Light -- were sold out in the European market for the first time, highlighting the company's strong brand reputation.

The 3G investment in China market slowed compared with the peak of 2009, and fell from RMB 160 billion in 2009 to RMB 122 billion in 2010. However, tri-network integration boosted the investment in fixed networks which enabled ZTE to achieve 22% growth in the domestic market.

Stabilization in its market share of wireless product s and focus on the 3G terminal market will consolidate ZTE's market position and guarantee its steady and sustainable growth in the future.
