U.S. Stocks NEWS: On Monday, Shares of BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ:BBRY), lost -1.07% to $7.42.

BlackBerry Ltd has seen an almost 5 percent improvement in its share price over the past month.

According to the RBC Capital report, the integration of Good Technology “suggests organic MDM acceleration may be a few quarters out with incremental opex near-term.”

The company is slated to report its earnings results on September 25. Sue anticipates BlackBerry to report a sharp year-on-year decline in SAF revenues. Although the software and other contributions are growing, they are still too small to offset this decline. Sue also anticipates the company to report loss per share of $0.11, representing opex of $319 million.

On the other hand, Sue believes that the FY16 software revenue target would be achievable, although the mix is unlikely to be what was initially predictable. Apart from the $40 million in quarterly GAAP revenues predictable after the closure of the Good Technology deal, BlackBerry’s other acquisitions are predictable to drive revenue growth in the latter half of FY16.

“BlackBerry is rolling up software assets with the Good acquisition. Good brings a platform that assists BlackBerry address some of the work needed on iOS containerization,” Sue stated.

BlackBerry Limited provides wireless communications solutions worldwide. The company offers BlackBerry wireless solutions, which comprise the sale of BlackBerry handheld devices; and the provision of data communication, and compression and security infrastructure services enabling BlackBerry handheld wireless devices to send and receive wireless messages and data.
