Forbes Asia;9/17/2007, Vol. 3 Issue 15, p144
The article chronicles the success and failure of Alameda, California-based telecommunication equipment manufacturer UTStarcom. The company's main market was China, where telecommunications spending was increasing and the economic growth was growing. UTStarcom did well for a time. But from a peak of $87.50 in March 2000 UTStarcom's shares today are worth below $3. It is stated that UTS was too dependent on sales in a sole market for its equipment product line, which would inevitably be challenged by newer technologies.
