Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS), an innovator of high performance
analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today announced
that it received the Outstanding Supplier and Perfect Quality awards from
Lenovo for product innovation, delivering perfect quality solutions and
serving as a strategic partner. Skyworks is Lenovo’s leading provider of

product launches and growth in market share. Lenovo leverages a variety of
Skyworks’ products including SkyHi™ front-end solutions, multimode, multiband
power amplifiers, switches, diodes and global positioning system devices,
among others.

“Lenovo congratulates Skyworks for their outstanding support and commitment to
perfect quality,” said David Wang, vice president of procurement at Lenovo.
“Over the past few years Skyworks and Lenovo have forged a strong
relationship, one that has grown even stronger as Lenovo has become much more
than a PC company. We are delighted with Skyworks’ reliable, high quality and
turnkey solutions, and look forward to collaborating with them for years to
come particularly as Lenovo expects to grow its market share in China and
abroad.”

“At Skyworks we realize the success of our customers depends upon the strength
of our services and reliability of our products and we appreciate Lenovo’s
recognition of our journey towards perfect quality,” said Kenneth J. Huening,

Lenovo to enable a variety of personal technology platforms including
smartphones, tablets and smart television with an increasing number of our
analog and connectivity solutions. We also recognize that delivering perfect
quality is a key differentiator in today’s competitive market.”

With sales growing in India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Russia and Vietnam,
Gartner predicts that Lenovo will become China’s top smartphone vendor in
2013. According to IDC, Lenovo already has the third highest worldwide market
share for “Smart Connected Devices” which combines PC, smartphones and
tablets.
