    If this case were to go to trial, the government would be prepared to provethe following, and the Defendant now admits the following facts are true and correct:2. ZTEC is the largest publicly-traded telecommunications manufacturer in. the People's Republic of China (PRC), and the fourth largest telecommunicationsmanufacturer in the world. ZTEC products are manufactured in Shenzhen, PRC, andsold to customers globally. ZTEC has subsidiaries located all over the world, includingthe United States.
    Starting in January 2010, and continuing through March 2016 (the"relevant time period"), ZTEC violated U.S. law by causing the export of goods from theUnited States to the Islamic Republic of Iran (Iran) in violation of U.S. economicsanctions. ZTEC's most senior managers constructed an elaborate scheme to evadedetection by U.S. authorities. The company, along with its co-conspirators, includingZTE Parsian, Beijing 8 Star, Chinese Company A, Iran Company A, and Iran Company
    B, purchased U.S.-origin parts and then transshipped, exported, or reexported those parts,either as a component of a larger system or separately, from China to Iran without alicense from the Department of Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC").During the course of the conspiracy, ZTE Parsian and Beijing 8 Star acted as alter egos ofZTEC.4. During the relevant time period, ZTEC was incorporated and headquarteredin Shenzhen, China. It maintained a U.S. subsidiary, ZTE USA, located in Richardson,Texas, and a subsidiary in Tehran, Iran, ZTE Parsian. Its shares are listed on theShenzhen and Hong Kong Stock Exchanges.5. Beijing 8 Star Co. International ("8S") was registered in China in 2009 as atrading company. It was incorporated by two ZTEC employees as a side business forthose employees and originally was not part of ZTEC. As described in greater detail·below, beginning in 2010, ZTEC identified 8S as a possible vehicle for hiding itsshipments ofU.S.-origin items to Iran. It intended to use 8S to export U.S.-m;igin itemsfrom China to ZTEC customers in Iran. As part of this plaIJ., ZTEC supplied 8S withnecessary capital and took over control of the company.6. Chinese Company A ("CCA") was registered in the PRC in 1990. Itsprincipal place of business is in Jiangsu, China. It is a large manufacturer and its parentcompany is listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange. Beginning in 2014, CCA beganexporting U.S.-origin items from China to Iran on behalf of ZTEC.
    During the relevant time period, neither ZTEC, nor 8S, nor CCA appliedfor or obtained an export license from OF AC-for the U.S. -origin items they shipped toIran.



    US intelligence officials have warned that smartphones and other networked hardware from Chinese companies, such as Huawei and ZTE, could be used "to conduct undetected espionage".
    The warning comes from six intelligence officials - including the heads of the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency (NSA) - appearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

    FBI director Christopher Wray testified: "We're deeply concerned about the risks of allowing any company or entity that is beholden to foreign governments that don't share our values to gain positions of power inside our telecommunications networks."
    It provides the capacity to conduct undetected espionage
    "That provides the capacity to exert pressure or control over our telecommunications infrastructure. It provides the capacity to maliciously modify or steal information. And it provides the capacity to conduct undetected espionage."
    Michael Rogers, the NSA's director, added: "This is a challenge I think that is only going to increase, not lessen over time for us. You need to look long and hard at companies like this."

    “The buyback boom early this year confirms our view that the main use of corporate America’s tax savings will be takeovers and stock buybacks rather than capital investment or hiring,” Trim Tabs said.

    These seem to be making the wrong assumption that buybacks are not good for the economy
