Global tech giant Huawei released its 2019 Annual Report detailing a solid business performance in results that have signaled a bright future for the company.

The company’s global sales revenue in 2019 rounded off at 871,609,046,868 shillings up 19.1 percent year-on-year; its net profit reached 929,419,850,997 shillings and its cash flow from operating activities topped 1,354,848,076,254 shillings, up 22.4 percent year-on-year.

As part of a long-term, ongoing investment in technological innovation and research, Huawei invested 15.3 percent of its 2019 revenue – or 1,952,226,385,587 shillings– back into R&D. Its total R&D spend over the past decade now exceeds 8,893,969,866,000 shillings

“2019 was an extraordinary year for Huawei,” said Eric Xu, Huawei’s Rotating Chairman. “Despite enormous outside pressure, our team forged ahead with a singular focus on creating value for our customers. We worked hard to earn their respect and trust, as well as that of our partners around the globe. The business remains solid.”

In 2019, Huawei’s carrier business led the commercial rollout of 5G networks. To further commercial adoption and promote new innovation in 5G applications, the company established 5G joint innovation centers together with carriers worldwide.

Huawei’s RuralStar base station solutions can effectively address coverage problems in remote areas. These solutions are being used in over 50 countries and regions, bringing mobile Internet to more than 40 million people living in remote areas.

In 2019, sales revenue from Huawei’s carrier business reached 4,398,068,098,737 shillings up 3.8 percent on a year-on-year basis.

Huawei’s enterprise business continues to support the digital transformation of customers across industries as the company helps lay the foundations for the digital world.

Globally, more than 700 cities and 228 Fortune Global 500 companies have chosen Huawei as their digital transformation partner.

In 2019, Huawei announced its computing strategy with the aim of cultivating fertile soil for the intelligent world to flourish. As part of this strategy, the company launched the world’s fastest AI processor, the Ascend 910, and the AI training cluster Atlas 900.

During the same year of sales revenue from Huawei’s enterprise business reached 1,329,648,494,967 shillings up 8.6 percent on a year-on-year.

Huawei’s consumer business continues to see robust growth, with a total of 240 million smartphones shipped throughout the year.

The company reports further progress in developing the Seamless AI Life ecosystem across all scenarios and devices, including personal computers, tablets, wearables, and smart screens. In 2019, sales revenue from Huawei’s consumer business reached 6,926,920,197,303 shillings, up 34 percent year-on-year.

“The external environment will only get more complicated going forward,” Xu cautioned. “We need to keep enhancing the competitiveness of our products and services, promoting open innovation, and creating greater value for our customers and society at large. This is the only way we can seize the historic opportunities presented by the digital and intelligent transformation of industries, and maintain robust growth in the long run.”

All financial statements in the 2019 Annual Report were independently audited by KPMG, an international Big Four accounting firm.
