    Potential BlackBerry suitors interested in buying company for parts-img_00000597.png


    "Potential BlackBerry suitors interesting in buying parts of company

    Interest in acquiring Blackberry (BBRY) has reportedly been tepid, but the handful of suitors that are looking at the struggling company would be more open to buying parts of the firm than the whole business.

    A few private-equity funds have signed NDAs so they can start looking at BlackBerry's books. However, a number of the largest P-E firms and some Asian hardware manufacturers are not interested in any deal.

    Analysts reckon that BlackBerry's services business, which powers its security-focused messaging system, is worth $3-4.5B and its patents $2-3B, while it also has $3.1B in cash and investments. On the flip side, analysts ascribe little-to-no value to the company's mobile phone unit and estimate that it could cost $2B to close. BlackBerry's market cap is $5.4B."

    Hopefully this doesn't happen
