Happy 35th birthday BlackBerry from all of us on the board of directors of BlackBerry and Prem Watsa lead director. It is an amazing journey that began 35 years ago when Mike Lazaridis founded this company, while studying at the University of Waterloo. I still use my BlackBerry.

You began Canada's Silicon Valley. More recently of course John Chen has done a phenomenal job moving the company to cyber security and the Internet of Things. With the acquisition of Silence, you have all the prospects of becoming an iconic company again. Congratulations and best wishes for the next 35 years. Thank you very much.
