Internal sources close to Microsoft said the current industry-leading Microsoft has hired investment banks to assess DeutscheBank and GoldmanSachs, help determine the BlackBerry really worth, but Microsoft has not issued any invitation, so the trade negotiations between the two companies so far No start.
BlackBerry has not yet issued a statement before, I believe that it is unclear whether it is considering the sale of their own BlackBerry business, but it seems to depend on Microsoft for acquisitions out of chips. According to another report to know that Microsoft has cash reserves of up to $ 90.2 billion, if the budget through negotiations, then Microsoft would be willing to budget $ 7 billion acquisition of BlackBerry.
Microsoft’s main goal: Blackberry patents. Allegedly, Microsoft developed Windows 10 Mobile process, plans to buy the BlackBerry patent license, but due to the high cost of long-term development and not worthwhile. Therefore, Microsoft will buy into the idea of patent licensing direct purchase BlackBerry, and strive to bring more benefits and patents, but not limited to patents, including technology, equipment and programs designed for the enterprise.
Microsoft is not going to publish a review of the network transmission of the message, because it is not the first time came news of Microsoft’s acquisition of the BlackBerry, so the table before the two sides released an official statement, we are no longer speculate.
According to foreign media reports, Microsoft’s acquisition of the BlackBerry is not just one, Xiaomi, Huawei, Lenovo are on the list of pre-selected buyers. In early January this year, there was news that Samsung once the acquisition price of $ 7.5 billion of the BlackBerry, but the message was denied official BlackBerry.
