Lenovo posted a 58 percent increase in Profit in Q1 2022 despite Lockdown

The profit of Lenovo Group Ltd. exceeded market expectations after the world’s largest personal computer maker widened its lead over long-time rival HP Inc. According to a business filing, the Chinese PC giant’s net income increased by 58 percent to $412 million in the first three months of the year, exceeding analysts’ average forecast of $354 million. In the same period, sales were $16.7 billion, compared to $17.6 billion on average.

Before the findings were announced, Lenovo’s stock dipped significantly in Hong Kong on Thursday morning. Lenovo maintained its lead in the global PC market in the first quarter, with a market share of 22.7 percent.

Lenovo also has its market share drop below 20% due to supply chain and transportation issues

As economies restart pre-pandemic activity, PC suppliers are looking for fresh growth to replace demand from distant work and online learning. In the next two years, Beijing has instructed key government departments and state-owned firms to replace foreign-branded PCs with indigenous names. According to Bloomberg News, this creates a demand for at least 50 million PCs from local manufacturers like Lenovo.

As China’s stringent Covid-19 control efforts eliminate retail demand and hamper manufacturing and logistics, the firm expects mounting difficulties. Shanghai officials erected metal barricades outside residential compounds to prevent its 25 million people from leaving the city for nearly two months. Toyota Motor Corp. has halted additional production due to parts shortages induced by the city-wide lockdown, indicating that manufacturing supply-chain bottlenecks are still present.

According to JPMorgan analysts including Albert Hung, recent lockdowns have resulted in order reduction throughout the consumer electronics and infrastructure industries, potentially hitting Lenovo more than other brands due to its stronger sales exposure at home.
