BlackBerry stock soars as revenue and profit beat expectations

Bloomberg BlackBerry Ltd.’s share price jumped Friday after the former smartphone company beat analyst estimates for profit and revenue in the fourth-quarter and announced an upbeat outlook for the coming year.This profitable growth is a clear indication that we have successfully pivoted to become an enterprise software companyBlackBerry chief executive John Chen The company, based in Waterloo, Ont., had a full-year profit of US$95 million on revenue of US$904 billion, which were both down from the prior year. But the focus was on BlackBerry’s strong fourth quarter and future expectations.During a morning conference call, executive chairman and CEO John Chen announced the outlook for BlackBerry’s current 2020 financial year includes estimated revenue growth of between 23 per cent and 27 per cent.BlackBerry Ltd’s shares spiked after earnings beat expectations Friday. He also noted that BlackBerry met all of its key financial targets for the 2019 financial year and exceeded analyst revenue and profit estimates in the fourth quarter ended Feb. 28.“We believe total revenue growth is a significant milestone to both the company and our shareholders,” Chen said.“This profitable growth is a clear indication that we have successfully pivoted to become an enterprise software company.” How BlackBerry transformed from a ‘basket of parts’ into a money-making cybersecurity company BlackBerry timeline: From rags to riches to rags to … BlackBerry creates separate subsidiary to ‘deepen reach’ within U.S. government Although other companies still make and sell BlackBerry-branded smartphones under licence, BlackBerry itself concentrates on producing and selling software, services and intellectual property licences.Shares of the Waterloo, Ont.-based company were up $1.73 or 14.5 per cent at $13.64 in early afternoon trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.Since Chen’s arrival, BlackBerry shares have generally outperformed the broader Toronto market benchmark but underperformed Apple Inc., which became a devastating rival after the iPhone was introduced in 2008.Part of the challenge for investors is gauging the success of Chen’s go-slow approach to delivering growth over the long-term from the sales of cybersecurity protections for internet-connected devices, including autonomous vehicles.In a later call with reporters, Chen said he takes comfort in the fact that BlackBerry has returned to profitable revenue growth.“When I first joined (in late 2013), the company was making US$6 billion in revenue but losing a lot of money,” Chen said.Now, he said, BlackBerry is “making money and generating cash.”The company, which reports in U.S. currency, said it earned $51 million or eight cents per diluted share for the quarter. That compared with a loss of $10 million or six cents per diluted share a year ago.On an adjusted basis, it earned 11 cents per share. Revenue, using U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, totalled $255 million, up from $233 million and above analyst estimates.Analysts on average had expected a profit of six cents per share on revenue of $241.3 million, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.The quarter included BlackBerry’s US$1.4-billion acquisition of Cylance, a California-based artificial intelligence and cybersecurity firm. The deal, the biggest under Chen’s leadership, closed a week before the quarter ended.BlackBerry’s cash level fell by $1.4 billion over the quarter as a result of the all-cash Cylance acquisition, but remained at a comfortable $1 billion.Chen said that Cylance’s artificial-intelligence assisted technology represents a new generation of cybersecurity for end-points — devices at the outer edges of an enterprise network.However, BlackBerry hasn’t factored revenue growth from Cylance in its revenue guidance — even though the two companies have overlapping customers — because it will be 12 months before integrated products will be ready.“So the next fiscal year will (see) growth from that. Then, after that, we will integrate Cylance into the QNX offering.”BlackBerry’s Ottawa-based QNX business is primarily focused on the automotive industry, as a leading supplier of software for vehicle entertainment systems and for self-driving vehicles of the future.Chen noted that the strategy for the QNX business relies on getting “design wins” that will give it a long-lasting, steady flow of licensing revenues from the sale of products that include its embedded software.In BlackBerry’s fourth quarter, licensing intellectual property generated $99 million in revenue, up from $58 million a year earlier, while revenue at BlackBerry Technology Solutions, which includes QNX, grew to $55 million from $46 million.Meanwhile, revenue from software and services for enterprises, part of BlackBerry’s legacy business, fell to $92 million from $108 million a year earlier. read more

first_imgGeorge H. Read, Senior Vice President Exploration and Development of Star Diamond Corporation has announced that Rio Tinto Exploration Canada (RTEC), Bauer Maschinen GmbH and Nuna Logistics Ltd have finalisedcontractural arrangements for the manufacture, supply and operation of equipment to be used for the next phaseof large diameter, bulk sample drilling on the Star Kimberlite. During 2017, Star Diamond granted RTEC an option to earn up to a 60% interest in the Corporation’s Fort à la Corne mineral properties (including the Star-Orion South Diamond Project) on the terms and conditions contained in the Option Agreement.Recent work has focused on the specific sites for the ten hole locations on the Star Kimberlite and the documentation of the geological units to be encountered in the overburden and kimberlite to be intersected at each location. The proposed locations on the Star Kimberlite have been drill tested with Sonic core in the overburden, and HQ drill core in the kimberlite, to ensure that the overburden and kimberlite stratigraphy is accurately characterised. RTEC willexecute the proposed sampling program.RTEC aim to use a Bauer BC 50 cutter mounted on a Bauer MC 128 duty-cycle crane to drill and sample to depths of up to 250 m below surface. Each ten metres of advance down hole aims to excavate some 100 t of kimberlite.Bauer cutter rigs are used around the world for complex engineering projects. Bauer has indicated that this will be the first time in the world that this technology will be used in an active project to reach a depth of 250 m. Bauerhas committed to build and deliver the equipment to RTEC by mid-2018 with drilling to commence this year.Each of the sample locations will first require stabilisation of the near surface overburden.RTEC have confirmed the commencement of the mobilisation of the soil stabilisation rig from the Diavik Diamond mine in the Northwest Territories.

Le Brésil étend ses réserves naturelles

first_imgLe Brésil étend ses réserves naturellesDilma Rousseff, la présidente brésilienne, a proclamé en début de semaine l’augmentation de 10.000 kilomètres carrés des zones protégées. A quelques semaines de l’ouverture du sommet Rio+20 sur le développement durable, le Brésil multiplie les décisions en faveur de l’environnement.Le Brésil est sous pression et cela se sent. Depuis le début du mois de juin, les déclarations politique écologiques du gouvernement s’enchaînent. Et pour cause : le pays accueille, le 20 juin prochain, le sommet Rio+20 sur le développement durable. Sans réaction des autorités, l’occasion serait trop belle pour les militants écologistes de pointer les lacunes brésiliennes dans une conférence d’intérêt mondial. A l’occasion de la journée mondiale de l’environnement, Dilma Rousseff, la Chef de l’Etat a donc annoncé l’augmentation de 10.000 kilomètres carrés de son territoire protégé. Elle a ratifié pour cela une série de décrets amplifiant les réserves naturelles et agrandissant les territoires indigènes. Les zones protégées vont désormais représenter 770.000 kilomètres carrés du territoire brésilien. Malmenée par les écologistes depuis son veto partiel à une loi controversée réduisant la protection de la forêt amazonienne, Dilma Rousseff, citée par l’AFP, a également avancé les chiffres d’une réduction historique de la déforestation en 2011. En effet, le taux aurait chuté de 78% pour n’atteindre que 6.418 kilomètres carrés de forêt déboisée contre 27.000 kilomètres carrés en 2004 (son pic). Autre source de satisfaction : 80% de la végétation originale est restée intacte entre 2004 et 2011. Enfin, la Présidente brésilienne s’est montrée ferme : la crise économique ne servira pas de prétexte à la suspension des politiques environnementales.Le 7 juin 2012 à 19:18 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

The Weirdest And Worst Star Wars Fan Art

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. When a new sci-fi movie comes out, we brace for a tsunami of accompanying fan art, and The Last Jedi was no exception. The latest in the Star Wars franchise had plenty of drawable moments, from shirtless Kylo Ren to the climactic battle on the salt planet, and Tumblr, Deviantart and other hotbeds of talent were all over them.Of course, talent isn’t guaranteed in this world, and for every incredible piece of fan art in the Star Wars universe there are a dozen more that… aren’t so good. Join us on a journey to a galaxy far away as we spotlight the most depraved, demented and dismal drawings ever made of your Star Wars favorites. From foot fetishes to Sonic the Hedgehog, this one’s got it all.View as: One Page Slides1. The Vore AwakensRey’s trading parts for “portions” in The Force Awakens inspired a sizable share of perverts to try their hand at creating “vore” art where the young Jedi eats all sorts of things – and people to stay alive in the harsh desert of Jakku.2. Leather Daddy ChewbaccaOne of the longest-lived characters in the entire franchise, we’ve never really seen that much of Chewie’s private life beyond the Holiday Special. We’re not going to judge him if dressing up like Freddie Mercury helps him relax in between smuggling runs with Han.3. Attack Of The SpanksI’m more than a little disturbed by this rendering of three generations of Skywalker / Amidala / Organa women paddling young Anakin’s bare pink bottom. For one, it involves at least one and as many as three time paradoxes.4. Stormtrooper RecruitmentOne of the many weird-ass things the prequel trilogy introduced into the Star Wars world was the idea that all the Stormtroopers were clones of Jango Fett. For one thing, that guy could shoot straight. Speaking of shooting straight, here’s a depiction of clone-on-clone incest for you. Clonecest? That’s probably a thing.5. Christmas SweatersNot all fan art is sexually perverse – some of it is just inept and weird, like this drawing of Darth Maul, Jar Jar Binks and Qui-Gon Jinn enjoying the holiday season in new sweaters.6. Super AhsokaThere’s a whole subculture of artists who relish drawing Clone Wars character Ahsoka Tano with ridiculously huge, bulging muscles. That leads to totally bizarre drawings like this one, where she looks like a walnut with a face on it.7. Soulless? Heartless? EmpathyI can’t do this image justice so here are some words from its creator, DeviantArt user Artistic Critic Vegeta. “I’ve decided to do an unique art piece on ’empathy’, where I contrast the characteristics of C-3PO and Frieza towards Trixie Tang. It’s rich in irony, for C-3PO (as robots are consistently shown to be emotionless) has far more compassion than the sadistic Frieza.”8. Sweaty Stormtrooper FeetThe best – or possibly worst – thing about this image is that the creator made multiple versions of it, each with different amounts of sweat on the sole of the foot. That’s dedication to your perversion.9. Grand Moff Tarkin Jerking OffThe best thing about fandom culture is the ultra-specific niches people work themselves into, like this one person who has filled their gallery with shots of Empire villain Grand Moff Tarkin in various states of self-pleasure.10. Leia’s Ticklish InterrogationsI’m really trying to keep the amount of weird foot fetish stuff in this round-up to a minimum, but there’s just so much of it! This one earns a spot for insane perspective, the interrogation droid, and Vader and the Emperor holding up Olympic scorecards.11. Super Fat HuxGeneral Hux cuts a sharp figure in his uniform, but what if… what if he was enormously fat? Of course somebody’s drawn that for the world to see.12. Rey Eats FinnI really don’t think that eating a digesting a fully grown human (or whatever humanoid species Finn is) will grant you enormous titties, but I’m not a doctor or anything. That’s probably good for everybody.13. Shrek WarsIt’s a fundamental law of the universe – wherever there is fan art, there must be Shrek. There’s a lot to think about in this image, but can we praise the artist’s bold use of negative space that draws the eye inexorably to Fiona’s bulbous butt?14. Stormtrooper CapturedHad to get the ol’ pixelating tool out for this one, because this poor Stormtrooper had his unit hanging out for the world to see as he underwent whatever bizarre humiliation this artist laid out for him.15. Facesitting R2D2The best thing about this picture is imagining the outraged squeaks, chirps and whistles that would come from an astromech droid forced to perform such a function.16. Star SonicThere’s a lot going on in this transposition of Sonic the Hedgehog and foes to the Star Wars universe, but perhaps the weirdest thing is the implication that Shadow is Sonic’s father. That would really make things awkward.17. Diaper ReyWhen you’re training to become a Jedi on a remote island with a crabby old jerk, it’s hard to find time to visit the restroom. That said, we really don’t think adult diapers are the ideal solution here.18. Kylo RenYes, we know that Adam Driver has a bit of an… unconventional face for a movie star, but this portrait maybe could have taken a little more time to get his proportions somewhat less absurd?last_img read more

West Ham were unlucky says Pellegrini

first_imgWest Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini has lamented his side’s hard luck in front of goal as they lost 2-0 to Watford on Saturday in the Premier League.Pellegrini believes they deserved a positive result after creating many chances but failed to find the net.Troy Deeney and Gerard Deulofeu were both on target on Saturday to deny West Ham a chance to win their fifth Premier League in a row.“Really I think we were a bit unlucky to not at least draw,” Pellegrini told Sky Sports.“The penalty was the only action in our box in the first half, and we had three or four chances to draw the game.What to expect from Watford V Arsenal? Taimoor Khan – September 8, 2019 Arsenal are set to take on Watford this weekend and the game is definitely going to be quite a peculiar contest between two sides…“Unfortunately, we didn’t score and then they scored their second.“We had to be faster and more accurate. In the second half they had a couple of chances but before that, we had all the clear opportunities to draw.“One of the targets was to not lose any more points at home, but football is football.“We played against a good team.

Pochettino explains why he allowed Kane to play in FA Cup

Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“Respect the people, respect the opponent. They’re not going to have many chances to see Harry Kane play here in a competition like the FA Cup.”“I think it was a great atmosphere. For different reasons, I decided to make a change and put Kane on the pitch but one of them is that,” he commented.“It’s important to show respect to the people here so they could see Harry Kane, who is an icon in English football. It is difficult in that division to see it. It was important to see him in action.”“Like all the competitions, we take it very seriously,” he added.“Of course sometimes you can win and sometimes you can lose, but always we are serious and respect the competition.”last_img read more

MONTREAL — Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler says he

first_img MONTREAL — Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler says he had to wear a denim “Canadian tuxedo” and assured fans that Mounties are real in a social media post announcing his Canadian citizenship.The Instagram post shows Butler standing behind a cake decorated like a Canadian flag alongside officials, an RCMP officer and others during the ceremony.Butler says he has lived in Montreal for half of his life so it feels “very natural” to hold both Canadian and American passports.Citizenship Minister Ahmed Hussen is shown in a second post saying he believes Montrealers have “very much” adopted Butler and he has adopted Montreal.He says the members of Arcade Fire have made “extraordinary contributions” to a number of humanitarian causes over the years, including supporting health care improvements in Haiti.Hussen says those efforts have had a long-lasting positive impact not only in that country, but in the larger Haitian community in Canada.“Very Honored to finally be a Canadian Citizen,” Butler said on Instagram Tuesday.“I’ve lived in Montreal for half my life, so it feels very natural to have both passports now! Had to wear the Canadian Tuxedo, and yes Mounties are real.”Butler told reporters in March 2018 that he was applying for his Canadian citizenship, after playing a Canadian-accented version of himself on “Saturday Night Live.”He is married to bandmate Regine Chassagne, who was born in Montreal, but wedlock is only part of the qualification for becoming a Canadian citizen.An applicant must also be physically present in the country for at least 1,095 days within five years, according to the Government of Canada website.Butler said last year the “international achievement” Juno Award organizers recognized him for “ironically” hindered him from meeting those requirements.He has evidently overcome that obstacle.— By Amy Smart in VancouverThe Canadian Press ‘It feels very natural’: Arcade Fire’s Win Butler gets Canadian citizenship by The Canadian Press Posted Jul 10, 2019 6:16 am PDTcenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more
