Lenovo Delivers Record Results, Fueled By Strong Q2 Growth Across All Business Groups
Basic earnings per share for the second quarter were 2.59 US cents or 20.08 HK cents.
Our record results this quarter reflect our ongoing commitment to meeting the needs of the rapidly growing work-, learn-and play-from-home economy. All of our core businesses delivered year-on-year growth, while our Software and Services revenue grew to a new record, said Yuanqing Yang, Lenovo Chairman and CEO.

However, Lenovo sees a positive outlook for the second half of the year, with the new global norm of work, learn and play from home driving long-term growth trends in device demand and cloud/infrastructure requirements.
