Lenovo Statement on US Government Clearance of IBM x86 Acquisition

Lenovo can confirm reports that CFIUS has cleared its transaction to acquire IBM’s x86 server business and the companies have completed the regulatory process in the United States. As we have stated consistently for both the x86 and Motorola Mobility acquisitions, we continue to work through a number of regulatory and business processes to ensure an effective and timely closure on both deals. We remain on track to close both deals by the end of the year. Out of respect for the confidentiality of the process, we will not have any further comment until we have met all conditions for closure.
