Lenovo Chief Shares Bonus With Workers

Lenova Chief Yang Yuanqing

Lenovo Group Ltd. , the world’s biggest maker of personal computers, said Chief Executive Officer Yang Yuanqing will share his bonus with employees for a second straight year after achieving record shipments and sales.

Yang was paid $14.6 million last year, including a bonus of $4.23 million and long-term incentive awards of $8.94 million, according to the company’s annual report.

A pool of 10,000 workers will get payments this month to recognize their contributions, the total payment is about $3.25 million.

Lenovo posted revenue of $34 billion and PC shipments of 52.4 million units in the 12 months ended March 31 as the company gained market share and expanded sales of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The 48-year-old Yang, who gave $3 million from his bonus a year earlier, led the company to take the top spot in the June quarter as it overtook Hewlett-Packard Co.

“This payment is personally funded by Yuanqing,” a memo from the Human Resource of Lenova said “He believes that he has the responsibility as an owner of the company, and the opportunity as our leader, to ensure all of our employees understand the impact they have on building Lenovo.”

Yang’s award will be made to Lenovo staff in 20 countries, while about 85 percent of recipients are in China. The average payment of about $325 is almost equal to a month’s pay for a typical city worker in China as per the National Bureau of Statistics said in May.

According to the company’s annual report, Yang was paid $14.6 million last year, including a bonus of $4.23 million and long-term incentive awards of $8.94 million. Yang holds about 744 million shares of Lenovo, or 7.1 % of its outstanding stock.

Other executives to share their bonus include Oleg Deripaska of the world’s largest aluminum producer United Co. Rusal, who gave his $3 million bonus for 2012 to 120 employees, UPI reported in July. Simon Wolfson of Next Plc, the U.K. clothing retailer, awarded his bonus of about $3.7 million to 19,400 staff, the Telegraph reported in April.
