BlackBerry today announced that it will release its second quarter financial results slightly earlier than originally scheduled. It is moving the release time up by one hour to 0700 from 0800 on Friday, September 27, 2013.
It also announced that it will not hold its earnings conference call and webcast as originally planned. It cites the signing of the letter of intent agreement between BlackBerry and Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited as the reason for the cancellation.
The move is bound to raise a few eyebrows as the company is still publicly traded and that a letter of intent is not the same as a full acquisition.
