Lenovo - tech powerhouse
Chinese technology giant Lenovo were virtually unknown in the IT industry until 2005. It was in 2005 they acquired IBM’s desktop and laptop business for a reported $1.2bn, whilst also taking on $500m of their debt, and IBM claiming a reported 18% of Lenovo as part of the deal.
