Research In Motion Ticker Change to Take Effect Monday, February 4
Research In Motion (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM) confirms that, effective the start of trading on Monday, February 4, 2013, the Company's new ticker symbols will take effect. The company will trade as "BB" on the Toronto Stock Exchange and "BBRY" on the NASDAQ.
The legal name of the company is not changing and the Company will do business as BlackBerry until shareholders vote for the official change at the Company's Annual General Meeting later this year.
Who is the moron, you don't change the name of a company, you now lost all those years of the company reputation. Wait, if your reputation is in the dumps, well yeah I guess you change the name and hope people forget the past.
