Business with a Canadian company R.I.M.best known for smartphones blackberry, go far not in the best way. We have to enter the regime of the strictest economy. And it all starts with corporate jets.
In total, RIM has two aircraft. It was decided that one of them (Dassault Falcon 50EX with 14 seats) would be sold, while the other would be used only in exceptional cases. It is noted that the operation of each of them costs an average of about 2.1 million dollars annually. The sale will provide an additional $6-7 million.

The savings will also mean a significant reduction in the staff - about a third of all staff will be laid off during July. Those that remain will have to work after hours and do without vacations for the time being. With such measures, the company's management expects to save about a billion dollars.
Now the company is in full swing developing the BlackBerry 10 operating system, which has high hopes. It is no exaggeration to say that this is RIM's last hope, the market value of which has decreased by 95% over the past 6 years.
However, more and more often there are statements according to which all these measures will not help and the company is literally living out its last days.
