China Unicom is the second largest cellular phone company in China with a market share of approximately 20 percent. It was founded in 1984 and has since become one of the country’s leading telecommunications providers. In March 2014, Chinese authorities announced that they had finalized a purchase of control of the company from its private equity firm, Warburg Pincus.
In July 2016, Chinese authorities announced that they had completed their purchase of 100 percent control of Unicom’s shares from Warburg Pincus for $11 billion.
