Huawei Optimistic About Future Of ICT, Expects Compound Annual Growth Rate Of 10% Over Next Five Years

SHENZHEN, China, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today released its audited 2012 financial results. Huawei achieved steady business growth, recording sales revenues of CNY220.19 billion and net profit of CNY15.38 billion. In the next five years, Huawei forecasts a compound annual growth rate of 10%.

"In 2012, Huawei met business performance expectations through improved operational efficiency," said Guo Ping, Huawei's Rotating and Acting CEO. "Today, telecom networks are yet to meet the requirements for ubiquitous connections - zero wait time, ultra broadband, and smart applications. In the future, ICT will continue to grow, with new opportunities coming from cloud computing, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), and big data, and feature phones being replaced by smartphones at a faster rate. Huawei will continue to focus on its pipe strategy, integrate and develop businesses around the information pipe, and create value for customers, while achieving sustainable and effective growth."

Huawei's business demonstrated robust growth across all three of its business groups (BGs). The Carrier Network BG maintained its leadership position, achieving CNY160.1 billion in sales revenue, an increase of 6.7% year-on-year. The Enterprise BG continued to grow in the Chinese market and actively expanded internationally, achieving CNY11.5 billion in sales revenue, a 25.8% increase from the previous year. The Consumer BG's global sales revenue reached CNY48.4 billion, an increase of 8.4% year-on-year. Rapid growth in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) contributed record regional sales revenue of CNY77.4 billion, an increase of 6.1% year-on-year. In the Asia Pacific region, sales revenue was CNY37.4 billion, an increase of 7.2% year-on-year; in the Americas, sales revenue was CNY31.8 billion, an increase of 4.3% year-on-year. Huawei generated CNY73.6 billion revenue from China, an increase of 12.2% year-on-year.

In 2012, Huawei invested CNY30.09 billion, or 13.7%, of its total sales revenue into research and development (R&D). The company has established 16 R&D centers and 28 joint innovation centers across the world.

Moving forward, Huawei's Carrier Network BG is committed to being the preferred partner of its customers. Through vertical integration and continued investments, Huawei will continue to maintain its leadership position in network equipment. The Carrier Network BG will also strive towards operational excellence by capitalizing on opportunities presented by the increased demand for professional services, carrier data center integration and cloud services. Huawei's Enterprise BG will adhere to an integration strategy and focus on developing partnerships and helping those partners improve their business capabilities and by providing the industry's most competitive products in the areas of cloud computing, data center solutions, and storage. Huawei's Consumer BG is committed to becoming a world-leading smart device brand that delivers a superior customer experience. Huawei will continue to simplify its management processes, improve efficiency, and strive to create greater value for customers through its passionate and energetic 150,000 employees and industry-leading innovation.
