- Lenovo (LNVGF) and IBM (IBM) are looking to extend their deal deadline, as the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) continues the review of Lenovo's planned purchase of IBM’s low-end server unit for $2.3B.
- The CFIUS assesses acquisitions for their national-security implications, and the deal between China-based Lenovo and IBM comes at a time of tensions between the U.S. and China over spying and hacking claims.
- IBM CEO Ginni Rometty has stressed the importance of the deal, and how it could stage a comeback for IBM, as users increasingly change to cloud-computing, reducing the need for servers and mainframes.
- If approved, Lenovo has stated that the companies can seal the deal by the end of the year.
