In response to IDC’s release of its Q1 2015 Preliminary PC Shipment Report, please see the following statement from Yang Yuanqing, chairman & CEO, Lenovo:
“This quarter and for the last two consecutive years, Lenovo again maintained the #1 position in the worldwide PC market by demonstrating outstanding innovation in the PC product line. We are proud that we achieved industry-leading worldwide share of 19.6 percent, highlighted by record market share in the U.S of 11.8 percent, up 1.1 pts. year-over-year.
We have had remarkable growth across all our businesses and success in building the Lenovo brand. I am tremendously proud of our broad success. Even as we continue to diversify and develop additional growth engines – like Mobile and Enterprise – we are fully committed to continuing to lead the way in PCs.
PCs remain at the heart of our business, delivering 65% of our revenue and record pre-tax income last quarter of almost $500m. Given industry consolidation, Lenovo’s consistent focus on innovation and delivering award-winning PCs, and our ongoing momentum, we are confident that PCs will continue to be a great engine of strong, profitable growth.”
