RIM Provides Status Update

RIM Provides Status Update

WATERLOO, ONTARIO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/30/07 -- Research In Motion Limited ("RIM" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: RIMM)(TSX: RIM) today provides this status update pursuant to the alternative information guidelines of the Ontario Securities Commission (the "OSC"). These guidelines contemplate that the Company will normally provide bi-weekly updates on its affairs until such time as the Company is current with its filing obligations under Canadian securities laws.

As previously disclosed, while the review of stock option granting practices by the Special Committee of RIM's Board of Directors is now complete, the Special Committee and its advisors, together with the Company and the Company's external auditors, continue to do the work necessary to complete the restatement of RIM's previously filed financial statements and to file its interim financial statements for the second and third quarters of fiscal 2007.

As previously disclosed, the Company had originally anticipated updating its filings with the Canadian securities regulatory authorities and the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) prior to its fiscal year end of March 3, 2007. Despite best efforts, the Company determined that additional time is required for the Company and its advisors to prepare the updated filings and for the independent auditors to complete their review of those filings. Accordingly, on April 11, 2007, the Company intends to disclose preliminary operating results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 and the fiscal 2007 year-end. The Company expects that the potential impact of any restatement on GAAP and preliminary operating results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 and the fiscal 2007 year-end will be immaterial.

The Company has had communications with both staff of the OSC and staff of the SEC about its internal review. The Company intends to continue to cooperate with the OSC and SEC.

There is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company at this time that has not been generally disclosed.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
