GUANGZHOU -- Chinese telecommunications equipment maker ZTE posted a net loss of 7.26 billion yuan ($1.05 billion) for the January-September period, with the impact of U.S. sanctions continuing to weigh on earnings.

The loss shrank from the January-June period by roughly 5 billion yuan as business resumed after the ban on purchasing U.S. parts was lifted in mid-July. But ZTE still expects to book a full-year loss of between 6.2 billion yuan and 7.2 billion yuan, the company said Thursday.
