I get a useless quarterly email from the UPenn Wharton School of Management. One of the articles this time was Huawei Technologies: A Chinese Trail Blazer in Africa
Here's the beginning:
So.... about 3 minutes of internet research revealed that in fact Huawei refuses to disclose who owns its shares, saying it is "employee owned" but refusing to provide any details. Both Australia and the US have recently rejected attempted acquisitions of companies by Huawei on the basis that the company is likely owned by the Chinese military.
Surprise surprise and a big thumbs up to the folks at Wharton
