As the authorized distributors of China Unicom, Beijing Baifu Hongtai and Berlin Information Service operate some of China-Unicom’s Business Stores throughout China. China Unicom, which trades on the NYSE, the Hong Kong Exchange and Shanghai Securities Exchange, is currently engaged in business in 31 provinces in China as well as countries outside of China, and generated revenue of RMB 248.93 billion (US$ 40 billion) in 2012.
