Chinese tech company Lenovo Group Ltd announced on Friday that it had made significant progress in its plan to build a diversified growth engine as it achieved a 41% revenue growth in its non-PC businesses in the quarter that ended in December. The company’s overall revenue was $15.3 billion, and its net income was $437 million.
The growth in non-PC businesses is a significant milestone for Lenovo, as it signifies that the company is well on its way to achieving its goals for a more diversified business. Lenovo’s solutions and services group and infrastructure solutions group grew their revenue to record highs of $1.8 billion and $2.9 billion, respectively. This represents an increase of 23% and 48% year-on-year.
The solid performance comes as the industry is under significant macroeconomic pressures, but Lenovo sees long-term opportunities ahead as digitalization and intelligent transformation continue accelerating, and IT spending is expected to recover to a moderate growth rate in the mid-to-long term.
Lenovo’s Chairman and CEO, Yang Yuanqing, said, “Today’s solid results demonstrate that our service-led transformation strategy is paying off. Our diversified growth engines of non-PC business now account for over 40% of our group revenue and are driving solid profitability.”
Yuanqing also expressed confidence in Lenovo’s strategy, operational resilience, healthy liquidity, and continued investment in innovation. He believes that these factors will ensure Lenovo can deliver long-term sustainable growth and improved profitability. Despite the complex macro environment, Lenovo retained its market leadership in PCs, a crucial factor in the company’s success.
The company has been recognized for its achievements in the fourth industrial revolution technologies. At this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Lenovo’s Hefei factory, LCFC, was recognized as one of the 18 additional sites added to the Forum’s Global Lighthouse Network of 132 leading manufacturers, each chosen for their leadership and integration of the latest technology. LCFC is the flagship in Lenovo’s network of over 35 manufacturing sites across nine markets and ships products to 126 markets around the world. The company manages 300,000 individual pieces of materials and parts every day, 300 discreet new products every year, and more than 200,000 different product configurations.
Lenovo’s success in building a more diversified business has been impressive. With strong growth in non-PC businesses and record-high revenues from solutions and services, the company is well-positioned for long-term sustainable growth. The CEO’s confidence in the company’s strategy and operational resilience provides investors with a positive outlook, and the recognition at the World Economic Forum solidifies Lenovo’s position as a leader in integrating the latest technology.Regenerate response
