Fujitsu-Lenovo PC deal in home stretch after long delay

Slow going on reforms holding Fujitsu back in fast-moving tech world

Fujitsu has insisted that jobs at its personal computer factory in western Japan be protected if its PC business merges with Lenovo's.

TOKYO -- Fujitsu and Lenovo Group are finally close to an agreement to integrate their personal computer operations after a year of talks, a sluggish pace that has done the Japanese company no favors given its urgent need to rebuild around new growth drivers.

The proposed merger was addressed during a news conference Fujitsu held here Thursday to announce earnings for the six months through September. "We're into stoppage time," said Hidehiro Tsukano, a vice president, referring to the extra minutes tacked on to the end of a soccer game.
