(Bloomberg) — Huawei Technologies Co. profit fell about 67% in the first quarter as the Chinese telecom-equipment giant continued to battle crippling U.S. trade and investment sanctions.

Revenue declined 14% to 131 billion yuan ($19.8 billion) in the three months through March, the closely held company said Thursday in a statement. Net profit margin narrowed to 4.3%, which translates to 5.6 billion yuan in net income. That compares with a margin of 11.1% and net income of 16.9 billion yuan a year earlier.
