- Fairfax Financial (FRFHF.PK) is having a tough sell as it courts Canada's pension funds to join it in a buyout of BlackBerry (BBRY), reports The Globe and Mail. "Sources say none of the big funds have jumped on board with the idea, amid growing skepticism about the company’s ability to turn around falling sales."
- Farifax itself is debating whether to buy the entire company or unload its 9.9% stake, and would prefer finding another tech industry player to buy BlackBerry, say sources, but "the company’s loss of market share to bigger and more nimble competitors such as Apple has dampened potential acquisition interest."
- BBRY -3.1% premarket.
