NEC Drops Lenovo Stake; 'No Impact' On PC, Tablet Business

Summary: NEC has sold its 281.1 million shares in Lenovo, despite the PC maker's booming success, in a bid to claw back its investment to stay afloat. Lenovo shrugs it off and says there's no impact on its NEC-partnered joint venture.

Cash-strapped technological innovation company NEC has marketed its whole discuss in Lenovo as the Japoneses company asserts with continuous financial problems.

But Lenovo said the discuss purchase would not effect or damage the PC and product company coalition that the two organizations started upon last Jan as part of initiatives to force further into the profitable Japoneses industry, despite the company's stocks losing by more than 8 percent on Wed following the shift.

Roderick Lappin, Lenovo's vice-president and professional chair of partnership Lenovo NEC Holdings, performed down the discuss purchase. Discussing to Reuters, he said:

    Actually, NEC could offer those stocks after two years anyway as per agreement. All we have done is to let them do it 10 months previously. This has no keeping on our partnership.

It was said previously this weeks time that the financially-troubled company would offer its whole discuss to pull back money, despite Lenovo's flourishing company and its predicted shift to the top of the list of international PC contractors.

Dow Jackson Newswires revealed last night that NEC would offer its 281.1 thousand stocks it has HK$6.30 (US$0.81) to HK$6.50 (US$0.83) per discuss.

NEC is having difficulties to keep its head above the water. In Jan the company cut 10,000 tasks -- a 10th of its international employees -- in a bid to cut expenses amongst difficult financial times and prediction failures in the following sectors.

Lenovo, however, remains the number two PC manufacturer by revenue, and is set to take the top-spot top later this one fourth following HP and Dell's decrease in PC deliveries quarter-on-quarter.

While the PC company's partnership with NEC will keep pay attention to Asia, Lenovo is constantly on the flourish to other marketplaces, particularly BRIC countries -- South america, Italy, Indian and Chinese suppliers -- with the latter the car owner of most of the company's revenue bar the U. s. Declares.

Lenovo is "close" to splitting even its growing industry areas, though its South america platform remains very much in the red due to high transfer taxation and a poor submission design, according to Morgan Stanley.
