US media reported late last month that the US Commerce Department had brokered a new deal under which ZTE would pay a substantial fine, hire American compliance officers to be placed at the firm and make changes to its current management team.
Chairman Yin Yimin's letter also apologized to ZTE's 80,000 employees, according to the South China Morning Post. The deal also includes a new 10-year ban that is suspended unless there are future violations.
The Trump Administration still retains "the power to shut them down again" as well, and perhaps most important of all, a "compliance department" of the US Commerce's choosing will "literally be embedded into the company to monitor it going forward".
Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Thursday announced a deal with Chinese telecommunications company ZTE that includes a $1 billion fine - a move that may indicate progress in high-stakes trade talks between the US and China.

Thiem, meanwhile, becomes the first Austrian to reach a Grand Slam final since Thomas Muster triumphed at Roland Garros in 1995. Schwartzman compiled a 20-4 edge in winners for the set, closing it with a forehand that landed right at the baseline.
Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told CNBC this morning that the USA has struck a deal to lift sanctions on the electronics giant.
ZTE, headquartered in the southern city of Shenzhen, declined to comment on the report.
Ross, speaking about the agreement on CNBC today, said he did not think the arrangement would have any effect on tariff talks with China. China has vowed to retaliate on everything from US soybeans to airplanes, and said it will abandon its commitments if the USA follows through on its tariff threat.
ZTE had been barred in April from buying USA components after the Commerce Department said the company violated a settlement after it admitted in 2017 exporting telecoms equipment to Iran and North Korea in violation of US regulations.
It shows the growing severity of the issue
Those with known mental health conditions were mostly men, but they were less likely to use firearms. Increasingly, suicide is being viewed not only as a mental health problem but a public health one.
The May ban came after the government determined that ZTE violated terms of a 2017 settlement by failing to fire employees involved with illegally shipping USA equipment to Iran and North Korea.
The agreement signals that China will be likely to quickly approve the $43 billion acquisition of NXP by Qualcomm Inc, a deal that has been pending for 18 months. The team will monitor ZTE's adherence to US export control laws - an arrangement the department described as the most stringent requirements it has ever imposed.
ZTE, which sources up to 30 per cent of its components from the USA, paused its operations as a result and claimed its survival was at risk.
Following the ban on selling USA -made hardware (and potentially software) to ZTE earlier this year, it appears that the company may have reached a compromise with the US government, according to Reuters. "I hope that we can devote ourselves to hard work and innovation and get the company back into business as soon as possible".
