Huawei Scores $4.1B Sales for 1st Half Year
From LightReading: Huawei H1 Sales Hit $4.1B
"Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. is growing even faster than expected, according to a trading update issued today. And the company's latest numbers, and especially its international success, will act as yet another reminder to the traditional major vendors that they're facing intense competition from the Chinese vendor.
Huawei says it was awarded contracts worth 33 billion Renminbi ($4.1 billion) in the first six months of this year, an increase of 85 percent over the same period in 2004, when it notched up deals worth $2.2 billion.
That means Huawei is already more than half way towards its full-year target of $8 billion worth of contract sales. And to put it into further perspective, the first half total of $4.1 billion is 73 percent of the vendor's sales for the whole of 2004.
In addition, 62 percent of the total, RMB20.5 billion ($2.5 billion), came from deals outside its domestic market. That's higher than the firm's total international sales for 2004 of $2.3 billion."
