Symbolic In More Ways Than One: RIM Selling Private Jet    [ 10-07-2012 16:36 ]

Author: Serge Novikov    Source: Bloomberg     Translation by: Paul Smith    Send news to friend  Discuss in forum

In a move that is symbolic in more ways than one RIM is looking to ditch one of its two corporate private jets. The company hopes to bag itself around $6 million for the sale of the plane according to Bloomberg, and is part of a wider effort to save RIM $1 billion in annual operating costs. That plan has also seen RIM planning the loss of 5,000 employees whilst others are being asked to give up holiday time and work longer hours. According to Bloomberg the sale of one of its jets would actually only save RIM $2.1 million a year, but of course getting rid of a fancy private plane is a good move in terms of morale at a time when the company is actually letting some of its workforce go. It's symbolic in another way too though ... a sign of a company in trouble and searching for every and any means of keeping its head above water.
