The Chinese multinational technology company Huawei Technologies Co Ltd has decided to sell its subsidiary smartphone company, to keep business operations active. Honor is a smartphone brand with a lot of potentials, which attracted over 30 agents and merchants with outright enthusiasm to consort with Huawei in other to gain access to utilizing its potential.
Huawei happens to be experiencing a bad year due to the series of lawsuits they have encountered in the last few years. Adding the sanctions they have been receiving lately from the US government, limiting the access the Chinese tech giant once had. Although they denied all the allegations, the US government still regards Huawei as a threat to its national security, and no tech company based in the US will engage in any business transactions with the Chinese tech company.
The issue Huawei has encountered lately is one amongst many others that resulted in the Chinese tech firm to initiate a deal as a means to save most of its assets. Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology ended up being victorious in sealing the deal to consort with Huawei amongst other interested merchants.
The partnership between Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology and the Chinese multinational tech company entails that Huawei Technologies will not possess any shares in Honor after Shenzhen buys the smartphone company.
Huawei ensures to attain progressive growth with Honor mobile, even at the expense of losing control over its smartphone unit. The Chinese multinational tech company also noted that Honor would have folded, just as Huawei has been under tremendous pressure. The world is changing, every other technology-based company is progressive revenue-wise due to the favorable market season that benefits tech parastatals or businesses using technology platforms. Huawei as a brand has been denied access to obtain chips and other elements required to power its smartphone brand/unit, and then other countries followed America’s lead as well.
The actual amount in which the Honor was acquired was not stated. However, the Shenzhen government and Digital China (a handset distributor) would have acquired Honor for 100 billion yuan ($15.2 billion). Still, they were not lucky enough to be part of the final buyers.
Huawei conveyed that they orchestrated selling its smartphone unit. Honor’s industrial team of decision making embarked on changing its ownership to attain business operations continuity. In contrast, the change of Honor’s ownership did not give Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology the authority to dictate the smartphone unit developmental directives.
In contrast to the pace at which the world is changing, Huawei is expected to adapt to the recent changes it has encountered in operating businesses since the US government consistently disrupts its sales. The Chinese tech giant still has a chance at attaining development growth. They need a new focus, that is, Huawei should consider corporate-oriented businesses, as they can no longer have access to thrive in the electronic device marketplace.
The US government may no longer have a reason to sanction Honor since they have cut ties with Huawei. The smartphone company originally sells its product online via its website and limited retail outlets as third-parties, with its stores stationed in Europe and Asia. Honor as a product has an efficient fanbase that boosts its potential to rival tech companies such as Oppo, Xiaomi, and Vivo.
With all hopes high as a bird, believing Huawei will someday reacquire Honor in the future, the possibilities to achieving this are quite a difficult task.
