Lenovo Delivers Robust Revenue and All-Time Record Pre-tax Income for FY19/20, Weathering Global Economic Challenges to Emerge in Position of Strength

Lenovo Group (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced robust results for its full fiscal year and Q4, demonstrating the company’s position of strength amid unprecedented global transformation. Despite a fiscal year full of macro-economic and industry challenges, the company delivered full-year revenue exceeding US$50 billion (US$50.7 billion) for the second consecutive year. Profitability remained a strength, with historical high pre-tax income of US$1.02 billion, up almost 19% year-on-year. Full-year Net Income was US$665 million, up 12% year-on-year.

Basic earnings per share for the full year were 5.58 US cents or 43.61 HK cents, and for the fourth quarter the figure was 0.36 US cents or 2.80 HK cents. Lenovo’s Board of Directors declared a final dividend of 2.77 US cents or 21.50 HK cents per share for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020.

“Amid one of the most significant periods of global change and transformation we have ever seen, Lenovo significantly transformed its business over the past year. From achieving record PTI of US$1.02 billion to reaching near record revenue of US$50.7 billion, I could not be prouder of our strong performance,” said Yang Yuanqing, Lenovo Chairman and CEO. “I am also unbelievably proud of how we continue to respond to the global pandemic, as both a business and a corporate citizen. While the world continues to face uncertain times, I’m confident Lenovo will leverage its operational excellence and global footprint to continue implementing our intelligent transformation strategy and fully grasp the opportunities our ‘new norm’ provides us.”

Global Economic Factors and Outlook

The last 12 months presented several industry-wide challenges, including geo-political uncertainties, component supply shortages, currency exchange impact, and in the fourth quarter the global COVID-19 pandemic. As relates to coronavirus, the business leveraged the power of 30+ inhouse and third-party manufacturing sites around the world to adjust capacity and rebalance production. This geographical balance and innate flexibility and resilience was at the core of the operational excellence shown throughout the year, ensuring the company continued to manufacture products and deliver orders to customers throughout Q4. Looking ahead, this foundational capability, together with ongoing innovation, will continue to drive business as the company seizes the long-term growth opportunities that the ‘new normal’ of working and studying from home is creating. This trend is not only leading to a growth in PC and smart devices, but also in the supporting data centers and infrastructure to power faster networks and digital consumption.

Fiscal Year Business Group Overview

Lenovo’s Intelligent Devices Group (IDG) continues to lead the company’s strong performance. The PC and Smart Devices group (PCSD), one of the two IDG business units, led the way with revenue for the year of almost US$40 billion, up 3.6% year-on-year. Profitability improved, with pre-tax income a record high of US$2.3 billion (more than 18% year-on-year) and an industry leading and record high PTI margin of 5.9%, up 0.7 points year-on-year. Leadership of the overall global PC market was extended, with share up more than 1 percentage point at 24.5% for the full year. This strong sustainable growth is driven by a consistent strategy to focus on and invest in high-growth segments, with Gaming, Workstations, Visuals, Thin and Light and Chromebooks each outgrowing the market by double-digits in volume.

IDG’s second business group, the Mobile Business Group (MBG), was on target for a breakthrough year until the fourth quarter impact of the required closure of the company’s primary smartphone factory in Wuhan due to COVID-19. Overall MBG revenue declined and pre-tax loss was US$43 million, greatly narrowed by US$96 million year-on-year. The business continued its focus on innovation, reentering the premium segment with the iconic foldable Motorola razr smartphone.

The Data Center Group (DCG) saw overall revenue decline 8.7% year-on-year due to softer Hyperscale demand and significant commodity price declines, but non-hyperscale revenue grew 5.3% year-on-year. This was driven by double-digit revenue growth in Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI), Storage, Software and Services. In particular storage revenue grew more than 50% year-on-year. In addition, non-hyperscale server volume grew by 14% and China revenue by 23% year-on-year. The company also extended its #1 leadership in High Performance Computing with 173 of the top 500 systems worldwide now running on Lenovo.

Transformation businesses demonstrated solid progress. Smart IoT revenue almost quadrupled (+296%) year-on-year driven by augmented and virtual reality, Smart Office and Internet of Things. Smart Infrastructure grew 37% year-on-year as Network Function Virtualization started to generate revenue. And Smart Vertical revenue more than doubled (+133%) thanks to strong growth in Data Intelligence Business Group, smart healthcare and smart education solutions. Software and Services had a breakthrough year with record revenue* of US$3.5 billion, up 43.2% year-on-year and becoming the catalyst for the Group’s overall transformation.

Q4 highlights:
Group revenue for the quarter was US$10.6 billion, down 9.7% year-on-year. Pre-tax income was US$77 million and Net income US$43 million.
PC and Smart Devices delivered a strong quarter. Revenue was down 4.4% year-on-year, but pre-tax Income improved by 15% (US$525 million v US$458 million) year-on-year, extending the company’s industry leading profitability by 1 whole point to a record high of 6.2%.
PC volume outgrew the market by four points, extending the company’s leadership and #1 global market position. PC revenue outgrew the market in all geographies around the world.
The Mobile Business Group was impacted by COVID-19 with the company’s primary global smartphone factory in Wuhan shut for much of the quarter. Despite this the business leveraged its global manufacturing footprint and produced 6 million phones during the quarter.
In Data Center, server volume continued double-digit growth (14%) year-on year. Hyperscale revenue remained a challenge due to a significant commodity price drop, but non-hyperscale business grew revenue almost 4% year-on-year, driven by the key growth and profit driver segments of Software Defined Infrastructure, Storage, Software and Services.

Lenovo Launches Virtual Rounding for Healthcare Providers

Personalized hospital video conferencing to enhance physician reach and efficiency, increase system-wide access to specialists, as well as conserve PPE

 Lenovo™ (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY), a global leader in providing advanced technologies for the healthcare industry, introduces Virtual Rounding to enhance virtual patient care. With surging hospital visits and exhausting supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE), the COVID-19 pandemic is accelerating the need for intelligent transformation in healthcare. Lenovo remains committed to building innovative devices and solutions that support and adapt to the changing healthcare landscape.

Making hospital rounds is a valuable time for providers to check in with patients and their families, discuss diagnoses and care plans, and answer questions. Virtual rounding allows providers to remotely communicate with patients safely and efficiently, increasing their ability to reach more patients, saving critical supplies of PPE, and limiting face-to-face time with patients to help better protect provider health and safety.

The Lenovo Virtual Rounding solution includes a Lenovo ThinkSmart View, an appliance for Microsoft Teams—a HIPAA-compliant collaboration and communication platform—designed for healthcare and businesses. Featuring high-quality video and sound in a small package, providers can safely meet with patients virtually from their office, another facility or their home. For patients in rooms at care locations such as hospitals, rehabilitation centers, or long-term care facilities, ThinkSmart View provides a reliable collaboration tool for their video conferencing needs.


“Lenovo Virtual Rounding was rapidly developed and brought to market in response to the acute needs of healthcare systems during the global COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Bob Monteverdi, Director of Global Healthcare Solutions, Lenovo. “Physician-patient communication is fundamental for good care, this solution preserves valuable face-to-face time, making daily rounds more efficient, convenient, and safe.”

Supported globally by Lenovo Services, the Lenovo Virtual Rounding solution relies on a robust end-to-end service infrastructure that ensures quality performance through the life of the device. Highly customizable, health system IT departments can easily configure the devices to the hospital’s specific needs and access virtual deployment installation and integration assistance to get the systems up and running quickly. Lenovo Services then provides ongoing technical support, remote maintenance and warranty support giving providers the confidence that their system will work when needed.

In addition to meeting the needs of the modern remote healthcare work force, the solution is designed to improve the safety of patients and providers, improve access to care, and improve the quality of care to help manage the near-term pandemic environment and well beyond.

#PatrioticPeachy #Politics #EarthyPeachy @Interior Secretary Bernhardt Announces Grants for Protecting American Battlefields in 11 States $47.8M in American Battlefield Protection Program Grants Issued Since 2017

During a visit to Gettysburg National Military Park today, U.S. Secretary of the Interior David L. Bernhardt highlighted the Trump Administration’s support for protecting and enhancing our nation’s historic sites and announced $3 million in American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) grants. The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission was awarded more than $573,000 to acquire two tracts of land adjacent to the iconic battlefield with their non-profit partner the American Battlefield Trust.

“Battlefields such as Gettysburg are sacred sites where Americans gave the last full measure of devotion,” said Secretary Bernhardt. “These grants enable us to partner with communities and organizations to preserve these places and connect visitors with their historical importance.”

“ABPP grants create partnerships among state and local governments and nonprofit organizations to act quickly and proactively to preserve and protect nationally significant battlefields, such as Gettysburg,” said National Park Service Deputy Director David Vela, exercising the authority of the director.

Since 2017, the Trump Administration has provided $47.8 million in grants through the ABPP, helping states and local communities acquire, preserve and share the history of our nation’s battlefields. Federal oil and gas revenues from the Outer Continental Shelf provide the lion’s share of deposits into the Land Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), which is the largest source of funding for ABPP grants.

LWCF also supports tens of thousands of other state and local projects, including the protection of important water sources, expansion of access for hunting and fishing and the preservation of recreational areas. President Trump has taken a historic step in calling on Congress to permanently fund LWCF and address the multi-billion dollar deferred maintenance backlog at national parks. Permanent funding would provide long-term support for projects such as today’s battlefield protection announcement.

Other ABPP grant recipients by state include:

Connecticut
$96,679 to the Fairfield Historical Society for the preservation of the Battle of Pequot Swamp, 1637.
$50,150 to the Ridgefield Historical Society for education and stewardship of the Battle of Ridgefield, 1777.

Florida
$206,890 to Florida State University for research of a site associated with the Apalachee Revolt of 1647.
$60,672 to the University of Florida Board of Trustees for research of battlefields associated with the 1614 Spanish Campaign against the Calusas.

Georgia
$116,247 to the Georgia Southern University Research & Service Foundation for research on two 1864 American Civil War skirmishes in Jenkins and Burke Counties.

Illinois
$93,220 to the Board of Trustees of Southern Illinois University for research on Fort Henry, which was attacked by the Union Army in 1862.

Maryland
$67,100 to the Society for the Preservation of Maryland Antiquities for research on the battle of St. George Island, 1776.
$78,000 to the Society for the Preservation of Maryland Antiquities for development of the South Mountain Battlefield, 1862.

New Jersey
$104,410 to the Palisades Parks Conservancy planning on the Revolutionary War Fort Lee Historic Park.

Ohio
$99,286 to Ball State University for research on the battle of Pechuwe, 1780.

Tennessee
$137,775 to the City of Parkers Crossroads to protect a 0.55-acre tract of Parker's Cross Roads Battlefield in Henderson County, 1862.
$259,446 to the City of Chattanooga to protect a 9.09-acre portion of the Wauhatchie Battlefield in Hamilton County, 1863.

Virginia
$1,053,650 to the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation to fund the acquisition of a 76.11-acre portion of Bristoe Station Battlefield in Prince William County, 1862-1863.
$32,274 to the Palisades Parks Conservancy for the development of the Port Republic Battlefields, 1862.
$39,427 to the Clarke County Historic Preservation Commission for research of the Battle of Berryville, 1862.
$86,740 to the Friends of Cedar Mountain Battlefield for research on Racoon Ford, Morton’s Ford, and Sommerville Ford Battlefields, 1863-1864.

Vermont
$66,873 to the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum at Basin Harbor, Inc. for research of the Arnold’s Bay Battlefield, 1776.

In 2019, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission received an ABPP grant of more than $400,000 to preserve 7.6 acres of the historic Gettysburg battlefield at the United Lutheran Seminary.

#LondonPeachy #CulturedPeachy @NationalGallery The Nation’s Gallery is now on the nation’s streets - thanks to the generous support of Ocean Outdoor

The Nation’s Gallery is now on the nation’s streets - thanks to the generous support of

Ocean Outdoor


The National Gallery has teamed up with digital outdoor screen provider, Ocean Outdoor, to bring some of the most famous and uplifting works of art out from behind the Gallery’s temporarily closed doors to thousands of people the length and breadth of the UK.

In a time when museums and galleries are closed to help contain the spread of coronavirus, opportunities to stand and enjoy the benefits of immersing yourself in a painting are limited. Ocean Outdoor and the National Gallery are working together to bring great art to the streets in locations including: Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Southampton.

Ocean Outdoor has kindly offered its huge digital sites to the National Gallery free for the next two weeks in order to display images of seven of the Gallery’s most iconic paintings: Van Gogh’s Sunflowers (1888) and A Wheatfield, with Cypresses (1889), Monet’s The Water-Lily Pond (1899), van Eyck’s The Arnolfini Portrait (1434), Seurat’s Bathers at Asnières (1884), Vigée Le Brun’s Self Portrait in a Straw Hat (1782) and Rousseau’s Surprised! (1891).

For frontline workers, those starting to return to their jobs, and people taking their daily exercise, the paintings will hopefully be a cheering sight as they pass by. The emotional and mental health benefits of art have long been recognised and, through Ocean’s network of screens, the National Gallery hopes that sharing some of the nation’s greatest paintings on digital display can be a positive force for the nation’s wellbeing.

Dr Gabriele Finaldi, Director of the National Gallery, says: "Our role now, more importantly than ever, is to provide access to some of the world's greatest art to give people inspiration and solace in these difficult times. Therefore, we are hugely grateful for this generous gesture from Ocean Outdoor that is allowing us to bring the Nation’s Gallery to the nation’s streets and reach even more people."

Chris Standish, Ocean Outdoor head of brand partnerships, said: “This partnership with the National Gallery really brings Ocean’s Art of Outdoor proposition to life. After such a difficult period, I can’t think of a better way to lift the mood as people swap lockdown for the joy of outdoor spaces.”

While the National Gallery’s doors are closed, anyone who enjoys seeing art on the streets of the UK and wants to see more can join us online www.nationalgallery.org.uk for more free art, films, stories and activities.

All new ThinkCentre Tower and SFF models are equipped with strong physical security safeguards, including padlock and Kensington lock protection, Smart Cable Clip that secures peripheral devices to the desktop chassis, and Chassis E-Lock that is powered by the system board to trigger a valve that locks the chassis from the inside, therefore preventing unwanted physical intrusion.

Three ThinkCentre M series are available with different form factors and features specifically designed to offer what you need, when you need it:
Available in all form factors, the ThinkCentre M70 series offers a blend of essential features, performance and affordable technology. The new M70a All-in-One PC combines the elegance of an 21.5-inch AIO PC with many of the features of its larger M90a

M90 Tower and SFF include the option for a second solid state drive for increased storage capacity and a Flex-IO display option for connecting an additional monitor via USB Type-C, HDMI, DisplayPort or VGA.


ThinkCentre-in-One (TIO) provides modular PC ability when combined with optional ThinkCentre Tiny desktops allowing customers to future-proof their PC systems. Simply drop a Tiny desktop into the purpose-built housing on the back of the TIO display. TIO22 Gen 4 and TIO24 Gen 4 provide a one step, no tool setup, are equipped with camera and microphone for easy unified communications and has mount options for full deployment flexibility.

Built Strong and Green

All ThinkCentre desktops, like their ThinkPad cousins, undergo rigorous testing including ten Mil-Spec procedures such as temperature variation, humidity, shock and vibration to name a few. Furthermore, all ThinkCentre models meet Energy Star 8.0 power consumption requirements, TCO 8.0 certification for sustainability, RoHS compliance for restricting the use of certain hazardous substances, and EPEAT ratings that address the full sustainable product lifecycle.

Lenovo™ Chromebook Duet is now available in North America

Six Reasons Why the new Lenovo Chromebook Duet is a Perfect Union of Chromebook and Tablet.

The wait is over. The Lenovo Chromebook Duet, one of the thinnest, lightest and most hotly anticipated Chromebooks in the world, hits the North America market today.

Designed for mobile productivity, the 2-in-1 detachable Lenovo Chromebook Duet has a 10.1-inch screen and comes with an ultrathin, detachable laptop-grade keyboard to help you get work done from the kitchen, to the home office or couch. The Lenovo Chromebook Duet runs Chrome OS — the powerfully simple operating system that boots up fast, and stays secure with seamless automatic updates for up to eight years1.

Here are the top reasons why the Lenovo Chromebook Duet offers the best of tablet entertainment and Chromebook productivity in an ultra-mobile design:

Three Intuitive Modes for Typing, Watching and Browsing



Made from aluminum alloy, the device sports an adjustable stand cover in a unique, ultra-mobile, contemporary design that incorporates a removable back cover of fabric featuring a hidden kickstand with a 135-degree free stop. Combined with a detachable keyboard, this smart configuration allows for three separate modes designed for typing (with the keyboard); watching (with the stand cover); or just browsing (holding in your hands like a tablet by detaching the keyboard).
More Seamless Switching from Laptop to Tablet Mode


Switching from laptop mode to tablet mode on the Lenovo Chromebook Duet is as simple as detaching the keyboard. And with the latest Chrome OS update, the Lenovo Chromebook Duet is even easier to navigate with touch, while further improving on its multitasking functionality. Updates such as the new “tab strip” on Google Chrome will be coming to the Lenovo Chromebook Duet first — and with good reason. The Lenovo Chromebook Duet is also compatible with USI Stylus pens for when you want to take notes or sketch. With these tablet mode improvements, Lenovo and Google have moved one step closer towards harmonizing everything that makes Chromebooks and tablets great — and all at an affordable price.
Detachable, Ergonomic Keyboard


But it’s the ergonomic detachable keyboard and trackpad that makes the Lenovo Chromebook Duet what it is: A great productivity device that lets you switch from getting entertained to getting stuff done in a matter of seconds. And it’s easy to type on as well. The tactile and responsive keys feature an ample 1.3 mm of key travel, along with one of the longest pitches (18mm) on a 10-in device keyboard, so you won’t feel cramped as you type. The one-piece trackpad is also a nice size at 87mm x 49mm.
Experience Touch-first Entertainment across a Universe of Android Apps


Taking away the keyboard and activating tablet mode makes the Lenovo Chromebook Duet a touch-first device with its 10.1-inch high-density, high-definition display and four-sided narrow bezels. Meanwhile, the 1920×1200 IPS all-screen FHD display with 400 nits, dual speakers and dual mics make watching shows, browsing and gaming a much more engaging experience. What makes the Lenovo Chromebook Duet compelling is the universe of Android apps and games you can access via the Google Play Store.
Effortlessly Lightweight and Portable


This is a Chromebook that’ll fit into your handbag. The Lenovo Chromebook Duet takes Chromebook portability and battery life to a whole new level. Weighing in at less than a pound and 0.29 inches thick, this device is lighter and thinner than many tablets, while staying effortless to hold and carry around. And with up to 10 hours of battery life2, you can take it nearly anywhere without low power anxiety.
Smarter Traits for Seamless Productivity and Entertainment

The Lenovo Chromebook Duet also comes with a number of smarter attributes, such as Instant Tethering to your phone and offline access to productivity applications. And the newest Chrome OS update extends the “picture-in-picture” feature to all Google Play Store apps. That means you can minimize any video app (or other app) such as YouTube™ and Prime Video™, and work on something else while continuing to watch the minimized video. And everything just keeps getting better – you’ll receive automatic Chrome OS updates up to eight years1.

The Lenovo Chromebook Duet is available now starting at $279.993 on www.lenovo.com, Best Buy and soon at Walmart.3

1Updates end June 2028 in accordance with Chrome OS AUE policy.

2 Battery life claims are approximate and based on internal testing with Power Load Test (PLT). Actual battery life will vary and depends on numerous factors including product configuration and usage, software, operating conditions, wireless functionality, power management settings, screen brightness and other factors. The maximum capacity of the battery will naturally decrease with time and usage.

3 Prices do not include tax and do not include shipping or options and are subject to change without notice; additional terms and conditions apply. Reseller prices may vary. All offers subject to availability. Lenovo reserves the right to alter product offerings, features and specifications at any time without notice.
