RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. -- January 21, 2013

As hockey fans across North Carolina anxiously await the first Carolina
Hurricanes home game this week, Lenovo (HKSE: 0992) (PINK SHEETS: LNVGY), is
equally excited to renew and extend its partnership with the Carolina
Hurricanes for another three years. Building on the Lenovo brand, “For Those
Who Do”, a new benefit of this local partnership will center on recognizing
deserving community leaders for the good things they do for communities across
North Carolina.

"The Carolina Hurricanes have been a valued Lenovo customer and we're excited
to now be working with their team to recognize those who are doing good things
and making North Carolina an even better place to live, work and play," said
Gerry Smith, senior vice president and president North America, Lenovo.

As part of the sponsorship, Lenovo and the Hurricanes will co-sponsor the
Lenovo Community Champions program, a new initiative to shine the spotlight on
those who have given back to the community through service or support of
nonprofit organizations. Preference will be given to nonprofit organizations
that focused on two specific areas: STEM (science, technology, engineering and
math) education for disadvantaged K-12 youth; and military support.

Lenovo Community Champions will be recognized during 15 games throughout the
season. Each community champion will receive two tickets to a Hurricanes game
and be recognized on the video board during the event. Lenovo Community
Champions will receive tickets for seats located in the exclusive
newly-branded Lenovo Champions Club, also part of the new sponsorship.

In addition, the company will partner with the Hurricanes on philanthropic and
community events each season focused on making a positive difference in the
community.

“We are excited to kick off this renewed partnership with Lenovo,” said Jim
Ballweg, vice president of Corporate Partnerships with the Carolina
Hurricanes. “We are committed to giving back to our community and entertaining
our fans, and this valuable partnership with Lenovo supports our commitment to
both.”

Lenovo and the Carolina Hurricanes first came together as partners in 2010.
The continued sponsorship will also provide many customer, employee and
partner-related opportunities. Additional activities include opportunities for
discount tickets for Lenovo employees and branded signage in the arena.
