Lenovo’s facing its worst time ever with the biggest ever quarterly loss
Lenovo, which is world's biggest maker of personal computers, reported about booking a net loss of $714 million for its fiscal second quarter, which must have come as a shock when compared with a net profit of $262 million last year. However, even this immense loss is narrower than the $787.8 million, the figure that analysts had expected, according to Thomson Reuters SmartEstimates.
Last year, the company had made two acquisitions, the figures of which went up in billions of dollars. The acquisitions were made for Google Inc's Motorola handset unit and IBM's low-end server business. This step was taken keeping in mind the response to the dwindling global market for personal computers.
Earlier this year, Lenovo had said that it would book a one-off charge, a massive $900 million, in smartphone inventory clearing and restructuring costs in the second quarter.
In a filing to the Hong Kong stock exchange, the company is reported to expect the realignment moves to generate cost saving of $1.35 billion annually.
