Hong Kong: The Hong Kong-listed shares of China's ZTE Corp were set to slide 38 percent on Wednesday following a two-month trading suspension after it agreed to pay up to $1.4 billion in penalties to the US government.
China's number two telecommunications equipment maker was crippled when the United States imposed a seven-year supplier ban on the company in April for breaking a 2017 agreement reached after it was caught illegally trading with Iran and North Korea.
Shares of ZTE were set to open at HK$16, their lowest level in a year, after it confirmed details of an agreement publicised by the US government on Monday.
