John Chen does not intend to sell BlackBerry
Although the future of BlackBerry remains shrouded in fog, at the moment we can be sure that the company will not be sold. The information comes directly from CEO John Chen.
Only a few days ago it became clear that BlackBerry will work with Google to achieve a greater level of security on Android phones that will be used for business. This includes encrypted data and restrictions on sharing information from calendars, contacts, files and applications. Devices that are part of this program will be protected from malware and the employer will not have access to personal information which the employee stored on the device. Thus users can easily and securely divide the purpose of your smartphone. Its IT department of the company will have full control over the business modes – such as deleting data from a distance and recording of enterprise software and the employee – on personal files and programs.
John Chen said that for the moment has no intention to sell the company. This can change, but only if the shares reach the value that Chen believes that meets the true value of the BlackBerry.
“I don’t have any intention to sell BlackBerry. Not until the BlackBerry shareholder has good value reflecting truly what we have. Then, if there is a potential proper suitor that would take care of our customers. I have a fiduciary responsibility to listen. But until then, there’s not point in listening. We make the most secure handset. Everybody, all of our competitors, will give that to us. Governments around the world are still using BlackBerry handsets. The emotional reason is, BlackBerry is iconic to the industry. We started this industry arguably.” Said – John Chen, CEO, BlackBerry.http://gizbrain.com/2015/07/12/john-chen-does-not-intend-to-sell-blackberry/https://i1.wp.com/gizbrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/john-chen-blackberry.jpg?fit=624%2C351https://i1.wp.com/gizbrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/john-chen-blackberry.jpg?fit=190%2C150TECH NEWSBlackBerryAlthough the future of BlackBerry remains shrouded in fog, at the moment we can be sure that the company will not be sold.
