Lenovo Group today reported results for its third fiscal quarter ended
December 31, 2012. In its best quarter ever, Lenovo continued to outgrow
the market in all geographies with record sales, pre-tax income and
earnings. Lenovo continued its push towards becoming the world’s leading
PC maker and emerging global leader in PC Plus devices, with another
quarterly sales record of $9.4 billion, an 12 percent year-over-year
For 13 consecutive quarters, Lenovo has been the fastest growing major
PC company. Lenovo was also recognized by IDC as the world’s third
largest maker of “smart connected devices,” such as tablets, PCs and
smartphones. At the same time, Lenovo had another quarter of record
pre-tax income at US$246 million, demonstrating that such rapid growth
is being achieved while profits increase.
Lenovo’s third quarter earnings were also a record at US$205 million, an
increase of 34 percent over the last year, with gross margin at 11.8
percent. Gross profit for the third fiscal quarter increased 15 percent
year-over-year, to US$1.1 billion, while operating profit for the third
quarter was US$243 million, a 26 percent increase year-over-year. Basic

The Company’s ‘Protect and Attack’ strategy – protecting the two profit
pools of global commercial PC and the China businesses, while attacking
three high growth opportunities in emerging markets, global consumer and
PC Plus products, such as smartphones, tablets and smart TVs – continued
to deliver results. This quarter, Attack businesses delivered 50 percent
of the Company’s revenues, a significant increase from four years ago
when the Company first launched the strategy and attack revenues were 32
percent. Further demonstrating the Company’s balance, its Mobile
Internet and Digital Home (MIDH) revenues, which includes its
smartphone, tablet and smart TV businesses, accounted for a record 11
percent of Company revenue this quarter, up 77 percent year over year.
And for the first time, its smartphone business in China became
During the third fiscal quarter, Lenovo’s worldwide PC shipments grew
7.9 percent to an all time high of 15.9 percent* marketshare, in a
difficult market that was down 7.8 percent year-over-year. This was the
15th quarter in a row the Company grew faster than the
industry. Lenovo gained share points in every geography and every
product category and in every respective customer segment.
While the Company’s organic growth continues to drive the majority of
its success, shareholders should note that Lenovo has closed the joint
venture and acquisitions announced in the previous two quarters,
including its strategic partnership with EMC that includes a joint
venture in EMC’s Iomega business; its acquisition of CCE, a leading
PC+company in Brazil, and its acquisition of Stoneware, a US-based cloud
computing company. Further, the Company reports that integration of all
mergers and acquisitions transactions announced in the last three years
are well on-track, and in many cases ahead of schedule.
Lenovo recently realigned its product development and supply chain
organizations to create two new groups: the Lenovo Business Group, which
will focus on mainstream PCs, mobile internet and digital home products;
and the Think Business Group, which will focus on Think-branded products
targeting high-end consumers and enterprises. Today, Lenovo is twice as
large and much more diverse than it was when its existing structure was
established over four years ago. That structure was ideal in supporting
Lenovo’s business when it was mostly focused on its China PC and global
commercial PC business. Today, the Company has built strong consumer,
mobile and emerging markets businesses globally, so the change was
proactively initiated to drive continued performance across all of these
businesses, stay ahead of consumer demands, while driving speed, agility
The recently concluded Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas
continued to show that innovation is a significant competitive advantage
and future growth driver for Lenovo. The Company was recognized with a
record 50 awards at CES, including several “Best in Show”
acknowledgments. A robust pipeline of innovative products including the
IdeaCentre Horizon - a 27-inch table top PC; ThinkPad Helix - Lenovo’s
latest convertible PC designed for business professionals; and the
Intel-powered, K900 smartphone are well positioned to continue to stoke
new customer demand and drive Lenovo’s performance.
"With the strong execution of our 'Protect and Attack' strategy, Lenovo
has not only achieved record revenue, profit and global PC market share
last quarter, but also our smartphone and tablet businesses have
delivered hyper growth. Even more, our worldwide tablet and China
smartphone businesses have become profitable," said Yang Yuanqing,
chairman and CEO, Lenovo Group. "As we continue into the PC Plus era,
Lenovo has already laid a solid foundation. Our new organization will
provide the structure to elevate our diversified business and drive it
to the next level. We are confident that we can win through
differentiation and will be the innovation leader in the PC Plus era."
