    That's the only logical solution. No point with this stupid selling idea.

    Not sure how te react to this news ??? This means they will continue to bleed money and loose everything or they will get a CEO which US consumers adore and they will start selling the phones finally. I just love my Q10 and hope they will succeed.

    Fantastic. They don't go private so they won't get chopped.
    Heins doesn't get his payout and can't ruin things further and gets chopped.

    Best possible outcome for people who want to see more BlackBerry products IMO.

    On the market for months and no buyers at all? BBRY is dying faster than previously thought. Now they start taking on debt and cutting huge in order to slow the bleeding.

    He would get $22 million though. A silver parachute.

    I believe the board had made a wise decision finally, which may not be too late. Heins should have been kicked out long ago.

    Hi,

    This is berry berry interesting. A last minute "speculation". Well I hope confirmation could be made as soon as possible, all this hype is bad for my heart. Anyway, if BlackBerry chooses to abandon the up for sale idea, meaning they are confident to get back some market shares and keep them "moving". I can only see that as a result from BBM going cross-platforms. Hopefully, they are confident with iOS and Android based users are willing to pay for the whole BBM experience.

    As for TH..... well I do give him credit to somehow managed to pull through with the BlackBerry 10 launch but h3ll.... We need something more charismatic to bring BlackBerry to the next stage....Well, it's all just my personal opinion, let's pray now... and finger crossed!!!!!!

    I am not sure if this is that good news. I am afraid that the stock will continue to drop until it will be worth how much, 2 USD? 1?

    Pretty much. People are trying to spin these developments as positive ones are ignoring how dire the situation is turning. A situation the company itself recognizes or else it wouldn't have put itself up for sale to begin with.

    Heins is a loser. He has failed BlackBerry. And he had failed Canada.

    I sincerely hope that things get better now and speculation can be brushed aside, however the vulters will gather waiting to pic bits off at every opportunity

    Hmmm...funny how BB and others proclaimed that BB was flush with 2.5 billion in cash and that everything was alright but now all of a sudden they need to raise a billion...

    Really does show how rapidly that burn rate is picking up.

    Stock crashing in pre market trading; down over 18%. Not sure how anyone could use the word "good" in this discussion.
    Yet more uncertainty.

    I don't want to hang TH. But he hasn't performed as well as he was alleged he was going to.

    The stock will go down because people were looking for the company to be sold, then chopped.
    Looks like that isn't happening.

    No way they're out of the woods, but this is still the best chance of more BlackBerry products, and also, Heins getting screwed is a fantastic bonus.
