ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, issued guidance for full-year profit to increase 43.5%, with projected record-breaking revenue.

ZTE recorded higher sales of 4G LTE network solutions internationally, in addition to China, reflecting the strength of the company’s innovations in telecommunications networks. The company also posted increased sales of optical network solutions as demand for broadband networks strengthens.

In addition, ZTE also boosted sales of 4G smartphones outside China, as well as terminal products for homes.

 

At the end of 2015, ZTE’s gearing ratio improved to 63.9%, compared to 75.25% a year earlier, reflecting the stronger profitability of the company’s operations and better capital management. The company strengthened cash flow management, with cash received for the sales of goods and rendering of services exceeding RMB 105 billion, achieving substantial growth in cash inflows from operating activities and net cash flows from operating activities.
