By Charles Rollet, Published Mar 29, 2021, 08:13am EDT

China's state-owned and largest telecommunications provider China Mobile has acquired 10.42% of Dahua (for nearly $1 billion USD), becoming Dahua's second-largest shareholder after Dahua founder Fu Liquan and his wife.

This gives previously privately-owned Dahua substantial China government backing since China Mobile is a state-owned firm that shares the same ultimate parent as Hikvision.

In this post, IPVM examines this news and what it means for Dahua.
