Xiaomi releases official statement as it wins case vs U.S. ban

Xiaomi got the upper hand as a federal judge in Washington blocked the Defense Department from restricting U.S. investment in Xiaomi Corp.

In case you missed it, the Trump administration placed the Chinese mobile maker in their list of alleged companies linked to the Chinese military. With this, it initially planned to restrict U.S. investment in the smartphone manufacturer, which is supposed to be effective starting next week.

However, last Friday, U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras temporarily stopped the ban, claiming that the move was “arbitrary and capricious” as it lacked due process.

Meanwhile, Xiaomi announced that it will continue its request to the court to declare the labeling of its alleged linking to the military as unlawful.

They also hope that the government will remove the restriction permanently.


“Xiaomi is pleased to see that on March 12, EST, the court enjoined DOD from implementing or enforcing the designation of Xiaomi as a CCMC. Pursuant to the injunctive relief granted, the Court removed, in full and with immediate effect, the Executive Order 13959 restriction on U.S. persons to purchase Xiaomi’s securities and the requirement on U.S. persons to divest their holdings.

Xiaomi reiterates that it is a widely held, publicly traded, independently managed corporation that offers consumer electronics products solely for civilian and commercial use.

Xiaomi believes that the decisions of designating it as a Chinese Communist Military Company are arbitrary and capricious, and the judge agrees with it. Xiaomi plans to continue to request that the court declare the designation unlawful and to permanently remove the designation.

Xiaomi is a young and energetic technology company. Over the years, we have offered amazing consumer electronics products such as smartphones and smart TVs with honest prices to consumers all over the world. We are committed to working with our global partners to let everyone in the world enjoy a better life through innovative technology.”
