16:36 EDTBBRYBlackBerry to buy for cancellation up to 12M common shares
BlackBerry announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a share repurchase program to purchase for cancellation up to 12M BlackBerry common shares, or approximately 2.6% of the outstanding public float. BlackBerry can purchase the common shares over the Nasdaq Stock Market or, subject to regulatory approval, on the Toronto Stock Exchange or other markets. In the past 12 months, BlackBerry has not repurchased any of its outstanding securities. At its annual meeting of shareholders on June 23, BlackBerry will present for approval a new employee share purchase plan and a proposed increase in the number of shares available under BlackBerry's equity incentive plan. If these proposals are approved by shareholders at the meeting, BlackBerry will file a notice of intention to commence a normal course issuer bid with the TSX. The share repurchase program would remain in place for up to 12 months from acceptance of the notice of intention by the TSX, or such earlier time as the purchases are completed or the program is terminated by BlackBerry. If the proposals are not approved by shareholders, BlackBerry does not expect that it will proceed with the share repurchase program. "The purpose of this repurchase program will be to offset dilution that may result from our proposed employee share purchase plan and from proposed amendments to our equity incentive plan," said BlackBerry Executive Chairman and CEO, John Chen. "We intend to take advantage of our strong cash position to purchase our shares when the market price does not reflect what we view to be the underlying value and future prospects of our business, without adversely affecting our strategic initiatives," added Mr. Chen. The price that BlackBerry will pay for any shares under the share repurchase program will be the prevailing market price at the time of purchase. The share repurchase program will be effected in accordance with Rule 10b-18 under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the TSX's normal course issuer bid rules, which contain restrictions on the number of shares that may be purchased on a single day, subject to certain exceptions for block purchases, based on the average daily trading volumes of BlackBerry's shares on the applicable exchange. In addition, BlackBerry may enter into forward purchase or swap contracts in connection with common shares which may be settled by physical settlement, cash settlement or a combination thereof. The forward price will be based on market price, dividend yield and market interest rates.

08:37 EDTBBRYBlackBerry software showing encouraging signs, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital says it's seeing encouraging signs regarding the sales of BlackBerry's software to regulated sectors, including government ,financials, and healthcare. The firm says that the company's mobile device management system, BES 12, is adding customers, while its resellers are getting more comfortable selling its software and sales of its technology solutions products are beating its guidance. RBC slashed its hardware sales estimates for the company and expects its Q1 revenue to come in well below expectations as a result, but adds that software has become the company's focus. It keeps an $11 price target and Sector Perform rating on the shares.
