Issues open letter to the company regarding ‘concerns’


In what comes as a surprising move from a relatively small shareholder of the company, Vic Alboini,  the CEO of the Jaguar Financial Corporation and RIM shareholder issued an open letter in which he urged the canadian phone manufacturer to consider drastic actions to try and save itself. He suggested a transformational change which involved not only the proposition of selling some patents but selling the company as a whole.


Alboini, as the Jaguar Financial Corporation, owns less than 5% of RIMs shares but as BGR reports has claimed that the views of his letter are not just his own but are shared by other shareholders. “We are representing several shareholders in making this statement,” he said. “I’ve said to them if they want to step out and make themselves known, that’s entirely up to them.”
