Lenovo Group’s net profit fell 72% in its fourth quarter, as personal-computer sales continued to decline amid a deteriorating global economy and soft consumer spending.
Net profit for the three months ended March was $114 million, the world’s largest PC maker said Wednesday. That compared with profit of $412 million a year earlier.
Revenue fell 24% to $12.635 billion, as its main business of PC, smartphone and other device sales fell 21%. The company cited a demand slowdown and exchange-rate fluctuations as reasons for the decline.
