Report Tentative ZTE Deal with U.S. Could Bring Fine to $1.7B AFP 5 Jun 2018Washington DC

ZTE has been banned from purchasing sensitive technology from the US over its illegal sales to Iran and North Korea

The company will pay a $1 billion fine and fund a new in-house compliance team staffed by US experts, Ross told CNBC.

Citing "sources familiar with the matter", Reuters disclosed Tuesday that ZTE could soon be allowed to buy the US products.

The preliminary deal includes a $1 billion fine against ZTE along with $400 million in escrow to cover any future violations, said sources aware of the development.

Ross called ZTE's actions a "world-class embarrassment", and said that the USA deal with ZTE imposes the "most strict" compliance ever on any company. The deal apparently includes a massive fine for ZTE's non-compliance with an earlier settlement over its breaking of Iran sanctions, as well as the replacement of its management team.

There was no immediate comment from the Chinese government on the ZTE agreement.

The company must also replace its entire management team and its board of directors, according to Ross.

The company paid $892 million in fines, with an additional $300 million suspended to encourage compliance with the settlement. They must also post calculations of the usage of USA -made components on a public website.

Meanwhile, the South China Morning Post reported Wednesday that ZTE has been sending out letters of reprimand to 35 current and former employees who were associated with the sanction-busting, and is even "seeking to claw back bonuses from those who have left the company". The agreement is also expected to call for other concessions from ZTE, including new board members and increased US oversight of its business. At that time, the US discovered documents that showed how ZTE established new entities to sell USA technologies to Iran.
