Revenue in the fourth quarter grew by 48 percent year-over-year, thanks largely to pandemic-era PC buying. Indeed, the fourth quarter was its best-ever for PCs and smart devices, which registered $12.4 billion in revenues, up 46 percent YOY. Lenovo says that sales of its PCs outpaced those of the market generally, which makes sense since the firm retained its crown as the world’s largest maker of PCs.
Other business segments also delivered solid results. Sales of Lenovo’s tablets surged 157 percent YOY, about three times as fast as the overall market. And its mobile business growth experienced what Lenovo called “hyper-growth,” with 86 percent YOY growth to $1.5 billion. Datacenter revenues were also strong, with 32 percent YOY growth.
