BlackBerry Considers Closing Sweden Operations
BlackBerry Ltd is considering closing its offices in Sweden, a move that would result in the loss of up to 100 jobs, a company spokesperson told Reuters.

"At this time, we are considering the closure of our offices in Sweden. Since this may impact approximately 100 employees, we are now initiating consultations with the employees' trade unions," the spokesperson said in an email.

BlackBerry had about 7,000 people as of September 2014, according to its website.

The company's Toronto-listed stock closed little changed at 12.62 Canadian dollars on Friday.
