Lenovo Group Ltd, personal computer (PC) maker, posted a 67 per cent slide in third-quarter net profit, according to the company’s filling on Thursday .

The company said in Hong Kong that the drop was due to supply constraints and a weak macroeconomic environment.

The company attributed this to component supply constraints across the industries in which Lenovo operated impacted performance, and challenging global markets.

Profit fell to 98 million dollars over the three months through December, from 300 million dollars in the same period a year earlier.

The results come as PC makers continue to battle against tablets and smartphones which for many consumers have become the primary devices for internet access and casual computing.

Global PC shipments also fell for a fifth consecutive year in 2016, by 6.2 per cent, according to a data from researcher Gartner.
