HONG KONG (Reuters) – Chinese personal computer maker Lenovo Group (0992.HK) on Thursday reported an 11 percent profit drop in second-quarter profit, hurt by supply constraints and continued difficulty in the PC market.
Profit came in at $139 million in the July-September quarter, Lenovo said in a filing to the Hong Kong stock exchange, versus $157 million a year ago.
That was above an average estimate of $44 million from 11 analysts polled by Thomson Reuters.
It reported a revenue of $11.8 billion, compared with $11.2 billion last year and a consensus estimate of $11.3 billion.
Lenovo said its global PC unit shipments rebounded 17 percent from the previous quarter, though its PC market share in the six months dropped 0.2 percentage point to 21 percent.
