    Good day everyone!

    Just another day in the market, BBRY is taking its downgrades in stride, should be done soon. It's nice to have all of the "analysts" together once again, Misek is bearish, seems he liked software and security less than we first thought. We are getting some contract information tomorrow? Is this from the Wall Street Enquirer or is it from the Disney Channel? I put on another short position with AAPL, it hit my target first thing this morning when it filled the gap, didn't see that coming so we're in now. The rest of the market looks weak so I'm done trading today, will wait to hear whether we see BBM-X "completely" launched soon, that's the next driver. Once it is stable I'll switch a bunch of my family and friends over to it. The board looks good today too so thanks must go out to the mods here, I only placed one individual on "ignore" this morning. GL

    Edit: Make that 2 on "ignore" didn't see the new fella!!
    It's like the early report and BBM failure completely missed someone's consciousness. Seems to me the Wall Street Journal was dead on.

    It's a homeless thing, many homeless are hired just to buy iPhones and others are here trying to stir things up. Ignore it and enjoy your friends on the thread, the "ignore" button is a wonderful thing and by the way, it was invented by BlackBerry. No, that's not true, Apple Execs claim to have invented that too.

    Does anyone think we should be lower today? What with Misek joining the ranks of Pac Crest and others?

    Sold all my shares this morning. Not going to hold on to them as they drift down. May re-evaluate if they get rid of Heins or actually have some success with BBM cross platform.
    Right now, I think they have the worst communications department in the history of the world </hyperbole>

    Welcome to the "Wall of Shame" and my list! It says a lot about your lack of character when you just show up for the sole purpose of piling on.

    BlackBerry Enters into Letter of Intent with Consortium led by Fairfax Financial

    BlackBerry Enters into Letter of Intent with Consortium led by Fairfax Financial

    - BlackBerry shareholders would receive U.S. $9 per share in cash

    - Transaction valued at approximately U.S. $4.7 billion

    - Consortium permitted 6 weeks to conduct due diligence

    - BlackBerry entitled to go-shop during due diligence period, subject to payment of a termination fee in the event alternative offer accepted

    WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 23, 2013) - BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ:BBRY)(TSX:BB) today announced it has signed a letter of intent agreement ("LOI") under which a consortium to be led by Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited ("Fairfax") has offered to acquire the company subject to due diligence.

    The letter of intent contemplates a transaction in which BlackBerry shareholders would receive U.S. $9 in cash for each share of BlackBerry share they hold, in a transaction valued at approximately U.S. $4.7 billion. The consortium would acquire for cash all of the outstanding shares of BlackBerry not held by Fairfax. Fairfax, which owns approximately 10 percent of BlackBerry's common shares, intends to contribute the shares of BlackBerry it currently holds into the transaction.

    The BlackBerry Board of Directors, acting on the recommendation of a special committee of the board of directors (the "Special Committee"), approved the terms of the LOI under which the consortium, which is seeking financing from BofA Merrill Lynch and BMO Capital Markets, would acquire BlackBerry and take the company private subject to a number of conditions, including due diligence, negotiation and execution of a definitive agreement (the "Definitive Agreement") and customary regulatory approvals.

    The Special Committee, chaired by Director Tim Dattels, was formed in August 2013 to review strategic alternatives for the company. J.P. Morgan and Perella Weinberg are acting as financial advisors and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP and Torys LLP are acting as legal advisors.

    Diligence is expected to be complete by November 4, 2013 ("Diligence Period"). The parties' intention is to negotiate and execute a definitive transaction agreement by such date. During such period, BlackBerry is permitted to actively solicit, receive, evaluate and potentially enter into negotiations with parties that offer alternative proposals ("Alternative Transactions").

    If (A) during the Diligence Period (i) BlackBerry enters into any letter of intent or definitive agreement providing for an Alternative Transaction, (ii) BlackBerry ceases to negotiate with the consortium in good faith with a view to entering into the Definitive Agreement by the end of the Diligence Period, or (iii) an Alternative Transaction is publicly proposed or publicly announced and is consummated within 6 months following the end of the Diligence Period, or (B) during the 3 month period following the end of the Diligence Period, BlackBerry enters into any agreement providing for an Alternative Transaction with a person with whom discussions were held before or during the Diligence Period, then BlackBerry shall pay Fairfax a fee of U.S. $0.30 per BlackBerry share, provided, however, that no such fee shall be payable if the consortium shall have reduced the price offered below U.S. $9.00 per share without the approval of the board of directors of BlackBerry. In the event that a definitive agreement is signed with Fairfax the termination fee will increase to U.S. $ 0.50 per share.

    Barbara Stymiest, Chair of BlackBerry's Board of Directors, said: "The Special Committee is seeking the best available outcome for the Company's constituents, including for shareholders. Importantly, the go-shop process provides an opportunity to determine if there are alternatives superior to the present proposal from the Fairfax consortium."

    Prem Watsa, Chairman and CEO of Fairfax, said: "We believe this transaction will open an exciting new private chapter for BlackBerry, its customers, carriers and employees. We can deliver immediate value to shareholders, while we continue the execution of a long-term strategy in a private company with a focus on delivering superior and secure enterprise solutions to BlackBerry customers around the world."

    In addition to the consortium and its lenders being satisfied with all aspects of the due diligence to be carried out by them during the Diligence Period and the negotiation and execution of a binding definitive agreement approved by the board of BlackBerry, completion of the transaction will be subject to other customary conditions, including receipt of required regulatory approvals. There can be no assurance that due diligence will be satisfactory, that financing will be obtained, that a definitive agreement will be entered into or that the transaction will be consummated.

    BDT & Company, LLC, BofA Merrill Lynch and BMO Capital Markets are acting as financial advisors, and Shearman & Sterling LLP and McCarthy Ttrault LLP are acting as legal advisors to Fairfax in connection with the transaction.

    And you deserve a firm warning for pushing flames in this thread with personal (moreover global) attacks here, despite clear forum rules.
    I won't fall in this trap and won't comment any of your precious previous contributions. Gang, please do the same, what should be done has been done already.
