SHENZHEN -- ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, forecast the company’s first-quarter profit will at least double from the same period last year, reflecting the strengthening of core operations.

Net profit attributable to shareholders of the listed company will be between RMB 425 million and RMB 637 million in the first quarter, a year-on-year increase of between 107.3% to 210.7%, according to ZTE’s preliminary results announcement filed to the Hong Kong stock exchange today. Basic earnings per share will be between RMB 0.12 and 0.19, compared to RMB 0.06 a year earlier, based on pre-audited financial data.

ZTE expects to record significant increases in both first quarter gross profit and gross profit margins, as the company continued to focus on servicing higher-margin contracts. Operating revenue from 4G infrastructure systems in China as a percentage of overall revenue increased, while gross profit margins for international projects improved.

The profitability of the company’s principal business recorded a relatively significant increase. It is expected that net profit after extraordinary items attributable to shareholders of the listed company will be over RMB 583 million in the first quarter, compared to a loss of RMB 615 million a year earlier.

ZTE is optimistic about the company’s business prospects as global 4G network deployments accelerate and demand for 4G mobile devices increase.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
