    BlackBerry Receives Investment of U.S. $1 Billion from Fairfax Financial and Other Institutional Investors

    Under the terms of the transaction, the Purchasers will subscribe for U.S. $1 billion aggregate principal amount of 6% unsecured subordinated convertible debentures (the "Debentures") convertible into common shares of BlackBerry at a price of U.S. $10.00 per common share (the "Transaction"), a 28.7% premium to the closing price of BlackBerry common shares on November 1, 2013. The Debentures have a term of seven years. Based on the number of common shares currently outstanding, if all of the U.S. $1 billion of Debentures were converted, the common shares issued upon conversion would represent approximately 16% of the common shares outstanding after giving effect to the conversion.

    Does this make any sense??? Can someone comment?
    Yep, so much for not having any debt. $1B in debt will dwarf the cash position of BBRY by the end of the quarter. Brilliant move by Prem to continue ot try to salvage FF investment. He really twisted on this one and is still hanging on. Props to him, BIG thumbs down to the dumb a$$ BOD.... Sad, sad, sad.....

    Please... Let's not spin it as Heins leaving after fulfilling role, he is being tossed out after failing on every measure of a CEO.

    Sure. I bet you've got tons of experience managing your own Fortune 500 company to back that up.

    If Mike L is back in I wonder if Qualcom comes with him?

    If they do, it might be with Prem's convertible bond deal, great for them, terrible for BBRY shareholders.

    Ouch..... At least TH is out, no surprise there. Hopefully the entire Board resigns too. So much for being a debt free company too. Just ugly if this is true.
    Thorsten punted is the best news possible! Should have been done at the last ER.

    I don't think he wrong though. TH tenure can't be seen as anything other than a COMPLETE failure.

    This is not debt... it is a private placement. This will simply add to the share float

    I agree. People harping on the positives of ousting Heins are ignoring the potential ramification of this financing. Not to mention what it says about the current state of then company's finances.

    Yeah because if a man shot himself in the head, you'd need to be a doctor to work out if he was dead. If he hasn't been a failure, why don't you list his successes...

    I may be dumb but I could not see why it is a bad news for the current BBRY share holders.
    Someone is willing to buy unsecured convertible note at $10 per shares for a total of $1 bil then it is equivalent to someone buys the common at $8.50 today for $1 bil.

    Agreed!

    Going private would have been the easy way out, I want to see BBRY fight its way back like an underdog.



    Also, a $1 billion direct investment does not equal $1 billion in immediate debt. IMHO they're being offered a line of credit from their major shareholders.

    The game continues, except that BB is now only pennies away from a 10 year low last seen in September 2003.

    Let's just get some kind of partnership deal done, partner with Facebook and let them use bbm, partner with Lenovo and let them use bb10 and build our phones. Let's get it done!

    Go Jets go!
