13 Fold?

13 fold != 13 percent

2 fold = times 2, 3 fold = times 3. At least that's what I got taught.

In UK speech . . .

13-fold does not relate to the 13 per cent figure

This should already be clear from the story, but just to repeat:

The 13 per cent figure refers to Lenovo's total Q1 revenue.

The 13-fold increase is the firm's net income which now stands at $66.8m, up from last year's $5.2m.

Yup. finally got the right info - embedded in the story, where you actually have to *read* it. :-)
