“Last quarter, we delivered our fastest growing quarter in almost a decade and closed the fiscal year with the new milestone of passing $60 billion in revenue and significant growth in profit to a new record,” sad Lenovo Chairman and CEO Yuanqing Yang in a statement. “These historic highs were achieved by leveraging our core competencies of a clear strategy, innovative products, operational excellence, and global-local model to meet the new needs in the New Normal.”

This “new normal” of remote working and learning led Lenovo’s PC and Smart Devices sales to hit a record $12.4 billion, up 46 percent year over year, while profitability reached an all-time of 6.7 percent. Tablets shipments grew 157 percent year over year, around three times as fast as the market.
