Zte Superseding Agreement

The nature of recent ZTE sanctions continues to demonstrate the robust use of administrative authorities such as the denial order as powerful instruments to promote compliance with export controls, economic sanctions and comparisons with regulators. The replacement agreement also shows the significant consequences that companies that violate the terms of the transaction agreement with civil agencies, including senior executives and corporate boards, can have. On March 23, 2017, I signed a warrant (the “March 23, 2017 decision”) on the terms and conditions of the transaction agreement entered into in early March 2017 between the Office of Industry and Safety, U.S. Department of Commerce (“BIS”) and Zhongxing Telecommunications Equipment Corporation, Shenzhen, China (“ZTE Corporation”), and ZTE Kangxun Telecommunications Ltd., of Hi-New Shenzhen, China (“ZTE Kangxun”) (“March 2017 Settlement Agreement”) (the “March 2017” to remedy 380 violations of the Export Administration ( “regulations”), launch the printed page 34826 approved by ZTE and presented in the proposed royalty letter, attached to the March 2017 settlement agreement and included in the March 23, 2017 order. [1] June 8, 2018, I have adopted an alternative decision approving an alternative settlement agreement between the BIS and ZTE (the “replacement settlement contract”), in which the parties have entered into additional and improved transaction terms, including, among other things, the full and timely payment of $1,000,000,000 by ZTE to the Ministry of Commerce within 60 days of the date of the Superseding Order , and the full and timely placement of $400,000,000 within 90 days of the date of the withdrawal order on a U.S.-based Bank trust account, selected by ZTE and approved by the BIS. The $400,000,000 portion of the $400,000 trust is the suspended portion of the $1,761,000,000 civil penalty imposed under the repurchase agreement and the damage sensor. [2] The replacement regulation also provided, as agreed by the parties, that the BIS was denying export privileges, The April 15, 2018 order would end the list of rejected persons and remove ZTE from the rejected list after ZTE paid the aforementioned $1,000,000,000 in full and on time, and the trust terms relating to the $400,000,000 share of the civil fine were met.
