In 2023, ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”, stock code: A/H, 000063/763) successfully issued 70 tranches of super & short-term commercial papers (“SCPs”) (with a total amount of RMB 83 billion) at the National Association of Financial Market Institutional Investors (the “Project”).

ZTE is a road builder for the digital economy and helps operators and partners build digital and intelligent foundations. Its concept of “connection + computing power + capacity” is used to accelerate the transformation and upgrading of society. ZTE is one of the leading patent holders in the world, and has made great contributions to the global research and standards of 5G technology.

It assisted ZTE in issuing multiple tranches of medium-term notes, perpetual medium-term notes, SCPs (including sci-tech innovation notes) and various debt financing instruments in 2015, 2020, 2021 and 2022. It advised ZTE on its private placement of A shares in 2020 and its purchase of Sanechips’ 5G assets through a share issuance in 2021.
