Private equity firms and other suitors for BlackBerry are reportedly more interested in bidding for parts of the smartphone maker rather than the whole company.
Buyout firms are interests in BlackBerry’s operating system and the patents around its keyboard, said Reuters, citing several sources familiar with the situation. The report added that interest in BlackBerry as a whole appears to be “tepid”.
However, one of the sources said that an unnamed Canadian pension fund could team up with another investor to acquire the whole business.
Last week it was reported that FairFax, which owns ten per cent of BlackBerry, was looking to team up with a Canadian investment fund to make a take-private offer for the company.
