    BlackBerry launches second patent lawsuit this month, this time against BLU - Cantech Letter

    In 2013, then Scotiabank analyst Gus Papageorgiou estimated the worth of BlackBerrys patents at $4.26 per share, which would amount to more than $2 billion. But Bernstein Research analyst Pierre Ferragu pegged the value at less than half that, at between $800-million and $1.5-billion. But former Cormark analyst Richard Tse last year said maybe the issue wasnt so cut and dry.

    If you have followed BlackBerry, even remotely, you will know that one of the big questions when it comes to valuing the stock, whether it is to determine the base value for the stock is the value of BlackBerrys IP, says Tse. When it comes to the financials, IP is largely represented by Intangible assets on the companys balance sheet. We would note that this Intangible assets are also recorded on a net basis which includes the impact of amortization. The bear thesis on BlackBerry is often that this IP is not worth much. Yet, if we look at the financials, we have seen little in the way of writedowns. And perhaps more interestingly, if there was no value, why would the company be licensing such technology without intensive litigation. In this fiscal year alone, we have seen a number of IP licenses deals with multiple this quarter for a combined $53 MM, with one deal carrying a recurring 10-year trailer beginning in 2018. Earlier this year, we saw BlackBerry and Cisco sign a broad patent-cross licensing agreement and another IP deal with an unnamed company. To us, that suggests we need to consider this value as incremental in valuing this name.

    We don't know yet and chances are we'll only know after ER, based on some calculations that would prevent to get the exact number ... but if HW is >0 then this means we're on a 3mil. Devices per year scale ...

    BlackBerry’s security business keeps company on track

    BlackBerry has picked up a host of new customers in the Australian and New Zealand markets as the once dominant player in smartphones continues to build a new future.

    The company has signed up Catholic Church Insurance, NZ law firm Buddle Findlay and relocation services provider SIRVA as new customers and BlackBerry ANZ’s newly appointed managing director Paul Crighton said the latest wins highlighted the strength of the new look BlackBerry. It may still make phones but the company’s core is now software that is designed to help enterprises secure their mobile environments.

    “The name BlackBerry conjures up many things and while we were once a global powerhouse in devices with strong security we are now just as dominant in security software,” Mr Crighton said.

    Just how long BlackBerry will persist with phones remains to be seen but it is certainly working hard to leverage the brand equity it once enjoyed in the highest echelons of public and the private sector.

    Only this time it is selling piece of mind to businesses. The new clients come hot on the heels of a deal with Macquarie University that will see it deploy Black*Berry’s networked crisis communications platform AtHoc.

    Apart from AtHoc, BlackBerry’s cross-platform product suite also offers multi-OS enterprise mobility management (EMM) and secure file-sharing solutions.

    “We actually manage and secure 20 per cent of the world’s devices no matter what operating system they are on but that’s not all we do, we are here to help businesses make the move to the mobile as securely and as easily as possible,” Mr Crighton said.

    “To be productive you have to get the apps into the hands of your workforce but how do you stop your critical IP from leaking out in a BYOD environment?

    “Our job is to provide the tools to businesses that help them share documents securely and create a secure end-to-end mobile environment.”

    Anyone care to comment that Berkshire now own a $1,5 B position in Apple, where in the past Buffet would stay away from technology stocks. IMHO I'm not completely surprised as Buffet had previously put money in IBM (lots of expectations but we'll see) which has some agreements with Apple, but believe they started giving leeway to younger Berkshire investment managers to take responsibility for some trades to build experience level. Personally found that we learn more from our mistakes than our successes, but opinions may vary. Also believe China and India smartphone markets will have important influences on the evolving market shares and profits, expansion could pierce some balloons. Hoping to get some pleasant surprises from Chen profit-making from hardware, to improve perceptions in September.

    From what I heard, it wasn't Buffett himself who bought the stock, but some of the high level people in BH.

    OT: SPHS

    Maybe not bad news? The PR indicated the stock offering/warrants are pursuant to a shelf registration filed in October 2014. From what I read, shelf registrations allow future stock/debt offerings sometime with in the following two years. Two years ago, SPHS was trading around $3.29 before the precipitous drop to $0.4x in December 2014. Now that it's trading in the mid-$5's, it's a more favorable time to offer the shares, plus the two year window is about to expire. Maybe it's a protective announcement on SPHS's part.

    I'll shut up now and let people who know better chime in.

    BlackBerry?s new round of lawsuits targets BLU?and Android | Ars Technica

    Struggling BlackBerry proves it's in "licensing mode," serious licensing mode.

    Over the years, BlackBerry has amassed a giant portfolio of patents, but it hasn't used them to sue others—until now.

    BlackBerry has filed three patent infringement lawsuits in as many weeks. The struggling phone company's offensive barrage began with a case filed against IP telephony company Avaya on July 27. Last week, BlackBerry filed two lawsuits against budget cell phone maker BLU's products, alleging that BLU infringes a whopping 15 patents.

    The dual lawsuits against BLU suggest that BlackBerry's new turn toward patent licensing isn't going to be a one-off event, but rather a more extended campaign. In a May earnings call, BlackBerry CEO John Chen told investors he's in a "patent licensing mode" and is hoping to monetize his company's 38,000 patents.

    The new lawsuits also suggest that BlackBerry has patents it believes describe Android features, so don't be surprised if more Android phones are in the crosshairs soon. One of the two cases filed last week accuses user-interface features that are more about Android than they are about BLU. A small manufacturer like BLU could make for a good "test case" against a maker of Android phones.

    [...]

    The second complaint notes that on November 21, 2015, BlackBerry sent BLU a list of patents "required to practice, inter alia, the 2G, 3G, and LTE standards." At that time, BlackBerry offered to license the patents on "fair, reasonable, and nondiscriminatory terms." The first complaint, with the more user interface-oriented allegations, doesn't mention the November notice.

    Nice to see them FINALLY start pushing the Priv tho. I've seen it in various flyers and websites (bestbuy etc) recently. Here's hoping it turns into some sales

    Blackberry (BBRY) has been a range-bound stock for several years now as CEO John Chen has been unable to turn the company’s fortunes around. Blackberry has underperformed the market since his arrival, however things may change going forward. Due to reasons mentioned below, I think BlackBerry is a good turnaround play that investors should consider adding to their portfolios going forward.
