With possible $4.7 billion sale, what’s next for BlackBerry?
The group trying to buy BlackBerry for $4.7 billion could break up the company, wiping out its smartphone division while preserving BlackBerry’s secure network services used by large enterprises globally. But one analyst said he hopes that’s not the case.
“I don’t believe that breaking up the company is the right way to go,” said Jack Gold, an analyst at J. Gold Associates. “I believe there’s more value in keeping the three parts — devices, services and collaboration — intact, which works better for longer term value.”
