Chief Executive Officer Shoichi Tosaka isn’t happy about this: He contends investors got it wrong. In an interview in Tokyo, he explained that Taiyo Yuden gets less than 10% of sales from Huawei and his company will be able to replace any lost revenue easily because of chronic shortages. Demand for its capacitors -- microscopic components found by the hundreds in electronic devices -- outstrips supply by such a margin that it would have no problem finding other buyers.

Huawei Calls U.S. Ban on its 5G Gear a `Dangerous Precedent'

China’s largest technology company asked for summary judgment in a filing late Tuesday, arguing the moratorium on its equipment disrupts existing contracts, stigmatizes Huawei and its employees as “tools” of the Chinese government, and threatens its ability to do business in the U.S. Huawei, which has warned that the ban could kill the company, has repeatedly denied those allegations.
