24 February 2012, Shenzhen, China – 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, announced today it had achieved the world’s-fastest sales revenues increase for the first nine months of 2011.
According to leading consulting firm Frost & Sullivan, ZTE achieved the highest growth rate in revenue among the top vendors in the global telecommunications market, with an approximate 33.4 per cent increase in sales revenue year-on-year to $9.17 billion in the first nine months of 2011.

Average revenue growth for the industry during the first three quarters of 2011 was approximately 10 per cent.
Frost & Sullivan attributes ZTE’s rapid growth in 2011 to the company’s aggressive marketing and sales strategies in China and overseas.
