- Lenovo (OTCPK:LNVGY) rose 5.8% in Hong Kong after reporting FQ2 revenue of $12.2B, up 16% Y/Y (23% exc. forex) thanks to the Motorola Mobility acquisition (closed in Oct. 2014) and beating an $11.8B consensus. Shares were down 29% YTD going into earnings.
- The company officially posted a $714M net loss (slightly below an $803M consensus), but had pre-tax income of $166M after backing out $599M in restructuring costs, a $324M smartphone inventory charge, and $85M in various non-cash charges.
- A weak PC market led PC division sales to drop 5% Y/Y to $8.1B, with division op. income falling 17% to $406M. Enterprise sales rose 5.5x to $1.2B thanks to the acquisition of IBM's x86 server unit, which contributed $900M.
- Mobile sales rose 104% to $2.7B thanks to the Motorola deal. Motorola had revenue of $1.4B, down from $1.69B a year ago as part of Google. The entire mobile division had an op. loss of $217M. Thanks in part to Motorola, 70% of FQ1/FQ2 shipments came from outside of China, up from 19% a year earlier.
- Chinese sales totaled $3.3B (now just 28% of total revenue), Asia-Pac $2B, EMEA $3.2B, and the Americas (significantly boosted by M&A) $3.7B. Chinese mobile sales were pressured by "hyper competition, carrier subsidy cuts and continued shift to the online model." India (revenue +99% Y/Y) was a strong point. "Our first priority is to grow in the rest of the emerging markets," says CEO Yang Yuanqing.
