Canada veto complicates BlackBerry, telecom deal making
$125; 5. Halifax, Spring Garden Rd., $65; 5. Calgary, 17th Ave. S.W., $65; 6. Calgary, 4th St. S.W., $60; 6. Montreal, Green Ave., $60; 6. Montreal, Rue de la Montagne, $60. Calgaryas 17th Avenue S.W. saw a hike of 8.3 per cent. Rob Walker, senior vice-president and partner with Colliers in Calgary, said there are a number of reasons why high-end retailers are doing well in the city. aCalgarians are well travelled and familiar with U.S. and international brands a familiarity has value,a he said. Thereas also high levels disposable income by a large percentage of the buying public.

BlackBerry declined to comment. The government declined to elaborate on its reasons for blocking the Allstream bid. For Canadian telecoms, however, the ruling may severely restrict the list of potential parties that may be allowed to invest in the sector at a time when U.S. telecoms have shown little interest in making investments in Canada. “Canada is definitely open for business, but it may not be open to be given away to the first person who comes in the door with a bit of money,” said Ross Healy, a portfolio manager with MacNicol & Associates, whose clients own BlackBerry shares. BlackBerry’s most sensitive asset – a secure network that handles millions of confidential corporate and government emails every day – is most likely to get shopped to North American entities, Healy said. Sources close to the matter have told Reuters that BlackBerry is in talks with Cisco Systems Inc (CSCO.O), Google Inc (GOOG.O) and Germany’s SAP AG (SAPG.DE) among others, about selling them all, or parts of itself. Such a deal would be an alternative to a preliminary, $9-a- share offer by a group led by BlackBerry’s biggest shareholder, Canada’s Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd (FFH.TO). BlackBerry shares closed slightly higher on Tuesday, the day after Ottawa’s announcement, a sign that investors were not concerned that the ruling on Allstream would hamper any deal making for the smartphone maker. The sources close to the matter have told Reuters that BlackBerry is also seeking preliminary expressions of interest from other strategic buyers, including Asian technology giants such as LG (066570.KS), Samsung (005930.KS) and U.S.-based Intel Corp (INTC.O). Analysts say BlackBerry could sell its handset business and operating system to an Asian phone maker, while selling its more sensitive enterprise business and network assets to the likes of a Cisco, IBM Corp (IBM.N), or Hewlett-Packard Co (HPQ.N).
