Shares of embattled telecom equipment maker ZTE Corp. traded down on Monday in Shenzhen, after the company replaced its entire board as part of a settlement with Washington to regain access to its U.S. suppliers.

ZTE shares were trading at 12.62 yuan ($1.91) midway through the Monday session, down 3.2% from their Friday close of 13.03 yuan. The company’s Hong Kong-listed shares weren't traded on Monday due to a public holiday.

The company halted operations shortly after coming under U.S. sanctions in April to punish it for illegally selling American-made equipment to Iran. Those sanctions forbade all of ZTE’s U.S. suppliers from selling to the Chinese company.

It later reached a settlement in the matter, which included an overhaul of the company’s management. As part of that overhaul, the company disclosed on Friday that it had replaced its entire board.
