Thanks to a rock-bottom $9-per share privatization bid from Toronto-based Fairfax Financial Holdings, the formerly named Research In Motion could soon be able to do its much needed dirty work in the dark.

To be clear, the all-cash offer from Fairfax was about ten percent above where the stock was trading prior to the announcement Monday afternoon and also allows BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) to shop the street for competing offers for the next six weeks, until November 4th, to see if it can come up with something sweeter.

For its part, Fairfax already owns ten percent of the company and its CEO Prem Watsa was on the BlackBerry board before stepping down in August; a move that had been widely seen as a precursor to today’s formal letter of intent.

For now, the stock is back trading above the $9 price implying that traders believe we haven’t seen the final offer yet, be that a from Fairfax or another entity who sees value where many other investors only see BlackBerry shame.
