IBM has triggered a 7% slide in Lenovo's share price by selling off 300-million shares.

According to The Inquirer, this was about a quarter of the shares Big Blue secured from Lenovo when the China-based company bought IBM's PC division last year.
Selling at a fairly low price, IBM made $123-million from the sale before sales were suspended.
The sale, which amounted to about 3.5% of Lenovo's holdings wiped out gains made by the share following good results posted by the PC giant last week.
