After today’s news about a possible split of the company, I reached out to a contact within RIM and received the following statement.
A RIM Spokesperson said:
“RIM has hired advisers to help the Company examine ways to leverage the BlackBerry platform through partnerships, licensing opportunities and strategic business model alternatives. As Thorsten said on the Company’s fourth-quarter earnings call, ‘We believe the best way to drive value for our stakeholders is to execute on our plan to turn the company around.’ This remains true.”
So what do you think? It is not a 100% definite answer, but seems like the main goal is to turn the company around, as they’ve repeatedly stated before. Sound off in the comments!
