Lenovo Group Ltd. posted its fastest pace of revenue growth in more than two years by pushing higher-priced computers and expanding its datacenter business in a stabilizing PC market.

The world’s second-largest PC vendor reported a 69 percent plunge in net income to $33 million in the three months ended March as it grappled with rising expenses. Sales however jumped 11 percent to $10.6 billion, surpassing the $9.8 billion projected and marking its first double-digit percentage increase since late 2015.
