Dear Valued Business Partner:
At ZTE, we understand that export compliance benefits both our company and our business partners. This update describes some of our recent efforts to ensure compliance, to prevent future problems and to maintain strong relationships with our business partners.
ZTE is actively working to meet all of its compliance obligations under its Superseding Settlement Agreement (“SSA”) with the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (“BIS”). ZTE is committed to ensuring export compliance to avoid any future issues for ZTE or our business partners. ZTE is cooperating with the Monitor and the Special Compliance Coordinator (“SCC”), achieving milestones under the SSA, updating BIS regarding the steps it is taking to fulfill its SSA obligations, and continuing to make advancements on its export compliance program.
●ZTE Continues to Cooperate with the Special Compliance Coordinator and the Monitor: ZTE continues to cooperate with the Special Compliance Coordinator, Roscoe Howard Jr., and the Monitor, James M. Stanton. Their teams have visited numerous ZTE sites and have participated in ZTE training and meetings at locations worldwide. For example, in December 2018, SCC team members spent approximately three weeks in China with ZTE personnel to participate in meetings and site visits. The SCC and Monitor have praised the commitment of ZTE’s senior leadership to compliance, as well as the efforts of ZTE’s Legal and Compliance leaders in enhancing the Company’s compliance program. Recently, in January 2019, the Monitor and SCC teams have completed additional site visits and met with ZTE personnel worldwide. In the coming months, ZTE will continue to support the SCC’s and Monitor’s work and implement their recommendations, as part of the Company’s broader effort to continue to strengthen its export compliance program.
