In a statement provided by the company, for the period January to September Huawei generated revenue of 671.3 billion yuan ($100.4 billion). This value denotes a 9.9% increase compared to what the company generated last year in a similar period.
In the third quarter only, the company posted revenue of 217.3 billion yuan a value relatively higher than the 209.5 billion yuan posted by the company in the same quarter last year.
