The BlackBerry/Fairfax Deal Falling Through is Probably a Good Thing

not gone yet - gone

It’s probably a good thing that the BlackBerry/Fairfax deal feel through. As an insurance company, FairFax is probably all about maximizing the value of its segmented funds, which it would’ve done by slicing BlackBerry into pieces and selling off the most valuable parts (most likely the patent portfolio).

As for now ex-CEO Thorsten Heins, he took on a really tough job, and I’d hate to be the guy to replace him.
