The company said it's opening its current smartphone operating system to competitors such as IBM, AirWatch and Citrix, allowing them to manage BlackBerry 10 devices in corporate workplaces. The three big companies have expressed a desire to work with the Waterloo, Ont., technology company, which would mean BlackBerry giving up exclusive control of its corporate smartphone management.

The regional telecom company reported higher first-quarter net earnings of $41.9 million, or 54 cents per share, up 35.6 per cent year-over-year. It earned $30.9 million, or 46 cents per share, in the same quarter of 2013.

Rona Inc. (TSX:RON). Home renovation retailer. Up 13.5 cents, or 1.24 per cent, to $11.04 on 399,084 shares. The company slowed the flow of red ink last quarter, but still lost $16.6 million as revenue slipped due to store closures, harsh winter conditions and lower housing construction. It said the loss amounted to 14 cents per share, compared with a loss of $36.1 million or 30 cents per share a year ago.

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. (TSX:VRX). Health care. Down 30.5 cents, or 0.22 per cent, to $141.40 on 415,231 shares. The Quebec-based company said it plans to improve its offer for Botox-maker Allergan. The U.S. company on Monday rejected Valeant's US$47-billion hostile takeover bid, saying it undervalued Allergan. Valeant will outline the improved offer during a webcast/conference call on May 28.
