PC vendor Lenovo and NEC Corporation (NEC) have joined hands to form a new group — NEC Lenovo Japan Group — which the company claims becomes Japan’s biggest PC provider.

The new group is expected to total nearly 25% of Japan’s PC market. The company hopes that the group will leverage the complementary strengths and expertise of NEC and Lenovo.

NEC Lenovo Japan Group comprises three companies: the holding company, Lenovo NEC Holdings B.V., NEC Personal Computers Ltd. and Lenovo Japan Ltd.

As a result of this transaction, NEC has received from Lenovo $175m through an issue of Lenovo shares.

Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing said the company is proud to announce the launch of NEC Lenovo Japan Group.

Yang Yuanqing said, "We have been engaged in extensive talks with NEC since the announcement of the joint venture in January to further mutual growth and cement our foundation for delivering innovative, high-quality products and services to Japanese customers.
