RIM Being Eyed by Other Companies as An Acquisition Target


rim logo 300x130 RIM Being Eyed by Other Companies as An Acquisition TargetWith all of the financial troubles Research in Motion is currently swimming in, it is expected that other companies would begin hovering around the troubled company in the hopes that they can get a bargain out of it when they make their acquisition offers. With RIM’s very dismal first quarter earnings for this year, other companies have smelled the vulnerability of RIM. Rumors are now going around about corporate entities that are potentially interested in the company or its parts.

One name that has been mentioned a number of times in the last year or so is Samsung.  Even though the company, arguably the biggest mobile phone manufacturer in the world right now, has repeatedly denied that it is not considering a buy-out of RIM or entering into a licensing agreement with it, reports have been persistent that the company is in fact seriously considering both options for RIM. Another company that looks like it wants a piece of RIM is IBM. There are reports the company has already made an informal show of interest in acquiring RIM’s enterprise services unit, which is widely considered as an integral part of operating RIM’s BlackBerry system.

But despite its current financial woes RIM is still optimistic that it can turn the corner with its BlackBerry 10 OS, which is going to be released next year. It is this optimism in their new OS that is holding back RIM from letting go of its enterprise unit. RIM will have an eager buyer for its enterprise unit though in case BlackBerry 10 doesn’t pan out for RIM.
