BlackBerry's Q2 earnings report as bad as it said it would be

After taking a $935 million hit (right in the solar plexus) to write down inventory of the BlackBerry Z10, the company reported a second quarter GAAP loss from continuing operations of $965 million. The massive non-cash charge obviously made up the majority of the operating loss for the period. Instead of having a cash flow into the company, which BlackBerry did to the tune of $630 million for the prior quarter, the company ate up $136 million in the second quarter as cash on hand dropped to $2.6 billion from $3.1 billion.
The company canceled the conference call that it usually holds after its quarterly earnings report. The company has agreed to a $4.7 billion purchase from a consortium led by its largest shareholder, Fairfax Financial Holdings. Should BlackBerry find a better deal, it can pull out of the current transaction and pay Fairfax a break-up fee of $157 million.

It is crazy how these companies operate totally blinded by their past grandeur. Adopt android already. You would sell more than you are already. Stockholders are to blame just as much as the CEO. Stockholders should demand more.
