    Waterloo, ON – BlackBerry® Limited (NASDAQ: BBRY; TSX: BB), a world leader in mobile communications, today announced that it intends to divest the majority of its real estate holdings in Canada.

    “BlackBerry remains committed to being headquartered in Waterloo and having a strong presence in Canada along with other global hubs,” said BlackBerry CEO and Executive Chair, John Chen. “This initiative will further enhance BlackBerry’s financial flexibility, and will provide additional resources to support our operations as our business continues to evolve.”
