reports that one of the world’s largest smartphone manufacturers, Huawei, saw a 40% increase in sales over the first half of 2016. The company has said that it wishes to “maintain current momentum” this year, and it should, considering that some have said the market is overflooded.
Huawei reported sales revenues of about $36.8 billion during the first half of 2016 while operating margin fell to 12% from 18% in the previous six months. In the report, Chief Financial Officer Sabrina Meng states that Huawei intends to “round out the full year in a positive financial position backed by sound ongoing operations.”
