Abstract: We study the well-known Beltrami equation under the assumption that its measurable complex-valued coefficient $\mu(z)$ has the norm $\Vert\mu\Vert _\infty=1.$Sufficient conditions for the existence of a homeomorphic solution to the Beltrami equation on the Riemann sphere are given in terms of the directional dilatation coefficients of $\mu.$A uniqueness theorem is also proved when the singular set $\operatorname{Sing} (\mu)$ of $\mu$is contained in a totally disconnected compact set with an additional thinness condition on $\operatorname{Sing}(\mu).$
