What: “Six years after Lenovo Group acquired IBM’s PC business, the US information technology giant has offloaded the last of the Lenovo shares that it received as part-payment. The sale took place after the Hong Kong market closed on Friday and enabled IBM to raise HK$2.05 billion ($263 million).”

Why: “A sharp turnaround from a recent low of HK$4.44 on February 10 (following a two-month decline) also seems to have encouraged IBM to sell the rest of its shares in one go – through yet another capital markets trade – rather than to dribble them out little by little in the open market. According to Hong Kong stock exchange data, IBM hasn’t sold any shares in Lenovo since July 2008.”
