Huawei Says 2014 Sales Revenue to Rise 15 Percent to $46 Billion
Chinese telecoms equipment maker Huawei Technologies expects advances in cloud computing and higher demand for smart devices to have lifted 2014 sales revenue by 15 percent to $46 billion (roughly Rs. 2,90,950 crores), CEO Ken Hu said in a new year's message on the company's website.

The Shenzhen-based company, for which three executives share CEO duties in six-month rotation, had said last year that it will achieve sustainable growth in 2014. It had also targeted revenue of $70 billion (roughly Rs. 4,42,750 crores) by 2018, or annual growth of about 10 percent a year.

Huawei's smartphone shipments rose by more than 40 percent last year, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters, failing to match its own target and the performance of faster-growing rivals such as Xiaomi.
