BlackBerry going-private offer coming from Fairfax?

|About: Fairfax Financial Holdin... (FRFHF)|By:, SA News Editor

Included in the BlackBerry strategic alternative news is Fairfax Financial's (FRFHF.PK) Prem Watsa resigning from the board to avoid a conflict of interest.

Leading the special committee will be TPG Capital Senior Partner Timothy Dattels.

The combination suggests some sort of going-private bid by Fairfax, perhaps partnering with the Canadian Pension Plan.

BBRY is set to resume trading at 8:30 ET.
