Blackberry refuses to be sold in pieces

Nov 26 2013, 4:42am CST | by

After offering to be sold and looking for potential buyers, the BlackBerry board has recently backed off from offers given by companies like Apple, Microsoft, and Lenovo. According to Reuters, Apple and Microsoft have mostly been interested in buying the patents and the intellectual properties of BlackBerry.

According to sources of Reuters, the reason of the buy-off rejection came as the companies were mainly interested to bid for the various assets of BlackBerry separately though the specifics of the proposals are still unknown.

A BlackBerry statement in connection to the refusal states, "that a break-up did not serve the interest of all stakeholders, which include employees, customers and suppliers in addition to shareholders."

The buyoff proposals came out as BlackBerry, who has faced a confirm loss of nearly $1 million, went for downsizing by cutting 4,500 jobs. The losses came as a result of around 3.7 million units of BlackBerry smartphones in the Q2 of 2013, which was much less than the 6.8 million units sold in Q1 of the same year.

Though there were earlier talks of a $4.7 billion takeover deal from Fairfax Financial this year, but the news of resignation of Thorsten Heins, CEO of BlackBerry, and an emergency $1 billion rescue investment from some loyal investors might have changed the scenario now. Moreover, sources state that fear of scrutiny from the Canadian Government about foreign involvement may also has been a reason behind BlackBerry’s refusal.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
