Reuters had cited documents in which Samsung offered to purchase Blackberry for $7.5 billion.
But to back up Samsumg’s denial, Blackberry has also issued a statement refuting a possible takeover.
The statement reads:“BlackBerry is aware of certain press reports published today with respect to a possible offer by Samsung to purchase BlackBerry.
BlackBerry has not engaged in discussions with Samsung with respect to any possible offer to purchase BlackBerry.
BlackBerry’s policy is not to comment on rumours or speculation, and accordingly it does not intend to comment further.”
