- Mark Wiseman, the CEO of the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, says his organization is open to buying a stake in BlackBerry (BBRY +7.4%) should the company try to go private (as it's reportedly thinking of doing).
- Wiseman: "It’s safe to say that any large deal in Canada or elsewhere is something that we would make sure we took a hard look at."
- CPPIB previously invested in Skype when the company was private, and booked more than a 3x return when Skype was sold to Microsoft.
