Lenovo Group Limited today announced that Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, otherwise
known as Ronaldinho Gaúcho, has been named a Lenovo Worldwide Brand Ambassador.
Ronaldinho, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World
Player of the Year for two years running, currently plays for Barcelona and the
Brazilian national team and is expected to play a key role in Brazil’s defense
of its World Cup title when the tournament begins on June 9, 2006.

Ronaldinho will be featured in worldwide product advertising campaigns and
promotional activities for the recently announced Lenovo-branded notebook and
desktop PCs.

"Through innovation and excellence in customer service, Lenovo is building a
global brand that we believe customers will recognize and trust," said Deepak
Advani, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, Lenovo. "Ronaldinho
brings world-class play and teamwork to the field, and he is always trying to
improve his game. These traits resonate well with us at Lenovo — we believe
Ronaldinho represents our culture of innovation and our pursuit of excellence."

Strengthening the ties between technology and sports, Lenovo earlier this year
completed its first-ever sponsorship of the Olympic Games. With more than 6,000
computing systems in place supporting the Torino 2006 Olympic Winter Games,
Lenovo’s flawless debut demonstrated that the world’s third largest PC company
is ready to compete on the world’s largest stages and serve the world’s most
demanding customers with high quality products and reliable customer services.

"I am proud to be a Lenovo worldwide brand ambassador," said Ronaldinho. "From
keeping in touch with friends and family when I am in training, designing my
exercise routines, to keeping an eye on Barcelona’s standings, technology and
products provided by Lenovo have added value to my life as an athlete."

Ronaldinho first made his mark in the worldwide football arena in 1997, as the
top scorer for the winning Brazil team at the "Under-17 World Championships." In
1999 he led his team to victory at the America’s Cup. In 2005 he took the
European Footballer of the Year and the FIFPro World Player of the Year awards.
