On an adjusted basis, the company lost 11 cents per share, which came in above analyst estimates of a loss of 28 cents, according to Thomson Reuters.

Revenue fell to $966 million for the three months ended May 31 compared with $3.07 billion a year ago.

BlackBerry will hold its annual shareholders meeting later this morning in Waterloo.
