BlackBerry Press Release

Waterloo, ON – BlackBerry® (NASDAQ: BBRY; TSX: BB) will hold its Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders on Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015 at 10am ET in Waterloo, Ontario. The live webcast can be listened to on June 23rd at http://ca.blackberry.com/company/investors/events.html.

About BlackBerry

A global leader in mobile communications, BlackBerry® revolutionized the mobile industry when it was introduced in 1999. Today, BlackBerry aims to inspire the success of our millions of customers around the world by continuously pushing the boundaries of mobile experiences.

Founded in 1984 and based in Waterloo, Ontario, BlackBerry operates offices in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America. BlackBerry is listed on the NASDAQ Stock Market (NASDAQ: BBRY) and the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX: BB). For more information, visit www.blackberry.com.

Over the last couple of weeks, there have been spate of negative news in the press.  A book written by journalists Jacquie McNish and Sean Silcoff that rehashed events that occurred 8 years ago under previous co-CEO’s Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis generated a lot of attention.  Then there was a Reuters news story perpetuated by rumors from unspecified sources that conveniently occurred during BlackBerry’s quiet period before its Earnings Report.

Despite what some of these critics have been saying,  I am expecting to hear some positive news regarding BlackBerry’s turnaround.  Over the last 2 earning reports, BlackBerry has maintained a positive cash flow and has exhibited very sound fiscal discipline in controlling its spending.  During this quarter my expectation is that this trend will continue, but what I am hoping for is there will be a strong push towards achieving growth.

We would love the hear your perspectives in the comments below.

    Looking forward to this. Chances are the android question will come up so curious to hear the response.

      Ray,

      I am curious to hear that response as well. My opinion is that there will nothing to that rumour and the new device will run BB10.

      Android is such an overcrowded marketplace with many manufacturers and very few of them making any money at all.

      I would be very surprised if BlackBerry chooses to make its new device with an Android operating system, as it would be extremely hard for them to distinguish themselves.

      Note my opinion is that like the recent rash of takeover rumors, there will be no truth to that story, but we will definitely find out next week.
