Research in Motion chief executive Thorston Heins has dismissed talk of his company's imminent demise.
The RIM chief said in an interview with Canada's CBC that the company's recent struggles were not signs that the BlackBerry is facing extinction.
"This company is not ignoring the world out there, nor is it in a death spiral," Heins told the network's radio outlet.
The comments come on the heels of a momentously awful financial quarter for RIM. It lost some $518m over the three-month period as revenues were down 43 per cent. Further adding to the company's troubles was the revelation that the BlackBerry 10 platform would be delayed until next year.
The poor financial figures have already had a devastating impact on the company, forcing into a reorganisation which has seen some 2,000 jobs cut.
Heins said that while RIM was facing challenges, the company was also in the midst of a transition which would see it regain prominence in the mobile space.
"All that is in the making, it's in the works," he said of the process.
"This company is in the middle of it and I'm positive we will emerge successfully from that transition."
The comments come after reports that RIM was exploring a possible deal with Microsoft which could include a switch to the Windows Phone operating system or the sale of its patent portfolio.
