BlackBerry Board Refused To Break Up the Company Despite Interest From Apple, Microsoft and Lenovo

Lenovo, Microsoft and Apple had reportedly all expressed interest in various parts of BlackBerry, however the board rejected the proposals stating that breaking up parts “did not serve the interest of all stakeholders.”

According to sources Reuters reported that the company gathered plenty of interest from different suitors which included Apple and Microsoft.

According to the report, Apple and Microsoft were interested in patents and some parts of the company which the board refuted as they believed that breaking BlackBerry wouldn’t be in the best interest of the “stakeholders”.

BlackBerry will be staying intact for the time being, though the board hasn’t ruled out breaking off parts in the future. The company received a $1 billion investment earlier this week and called an end to their strategic review period.
