Legend Group says it will inject three major assets into its Hong Kong-listed company. Deputy managing director Liu Xiaolin said yesterday the group had decided to inject Beijing Legend, its systems integration arm and its international brand distribution unit into Legend Holdings. Details of the transfer, including the timing and valuation of the assets, had not been decided. The evaluation had to be done by a third party, Mr Liu said. The company's results for last year will be released at the end of the month. Mr Liu said the asset injection was due to the outstanding results of Beijing Legend and a return to profitability by the Hong Kong company. The group yesterday released the results of three surveys which showed it had become the top seller of desk-top personal computers in China for the first time, with about 9 per cent of the market - ahead of Compaq, IBM and Hewlett-Packard. One survey, by Dataquest, showed Legend on top with 135,436 sale units, followed by IBM with 134,251, Hewlett-Packard with 111,776, Compaq with 111,058 and AST with 66,139. Another survey, by Hui Cong Business Information, showed Legend with 9 per cent of the market of 1.6 million units, ahead of Compaq with 8.1 per cent, IBM with 7.9 per cent, Hewlett-Packard with 7.4 per cent, AST with 7.1 per cent and Acer with 4.7 per cent. Legend officials said the performance was a result of new products, good marketing, high quality, price cuts and good after-sales service. Legend deputy president Yang Yuanqing said the company planned to double this year's output to 400,000 units and promised more price cuts. Yang Tianxing, former chief of the computer department at the Ministry of Electronics, hailed Legend's achievement but said Chinese brands still had less than 30 per cent of the domestic market, which he put at 2.1 million units and could reach 10 million by 2000.
