Fujitsu seeks PC exit, finds willing buyer in Lenovo

But can they fund the deal?

By Drew Cullen, 27 Oct 2016

Fujitsu is in talks with Lenovo to offload its PC arm to its Chinese rival.

If the talks are successful, Fujitsu will continue to sell and support own-brand PCs, designed and made by Lenovo.

The two companies are looking to the Development Bank of Japan to bankroll the deal.

Fujitsu is currently the 10th biggest PC manufacturer in the world. The company transferred its Japan PC business into a new subsidiary called FCCL, in February 2016.

At the time, the company was reported to be in talks to merge its PC operations with Toshiba and VAIO to create a powerhouse capable of taking on the Big Four: HP, Lenovo, Dell and Apple. ®
