Lenovo to make $400 million one-off charge on US tax reforms

Lenovo said on Wednesday, it expected to make a one-off charge of $400 million for nine months ended in December due to a reassessment of US deferred tax assets.

The adjustment to be reflected in the financial results is of a non-cash nature, and the company does not expect it to have any material effect on its operation or cash-flow position, the PC maker said in a filing to the Hong Kong bourse.

Lenovo, a unit of Legend Holdings, said US corporate tax cuts would “positively impact” future earnings of its US operations in the long-term.

Lenovo will announce third-quarter results on February 1.
