Two years ago, Lexmark was purchased by a Chinese consortium led by Apex Technology (now known as Ninestar) and PAG Asia Capital. Shan Weijian, chairman of PAG Asia Capital recently told Bloomberg  regarding Lexmark:   “2018 is performing ahead of budget.”

Lexmark is also said to be investing in hardware, improved efficiency, and reduced inventory levels under its new ownership. This said to put the company on a growth trajectory, even if it has led to a temporary rise in charges and expenses, according to Weijhn.
