New York , January 22 (BNA) -- The chief executive and senior management of IBM , the world's biggest computer-services provider, have said they will forgo their bonuses for 2013, BBC reported. The move comes as the firm reported a 5% drop in sales and 1% decline in net profit for 2013, from a year ago. Its performance was dented by falling profits in emerging economies - where a slowdown in economic growth in recent years has hurt demand. Revenues from these markets fell 9% from a year earlier. The big drop came from the so-called Bric countries - Brazil , Russia , India and China - where sales declined by 14% during the year.
