SEATTLE, Nov. 3, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Keller Rohrback L.L.P. (www.seattleclassaction.com) today announced that it is continuing its investigation of Research in Motion Ltd. ("RIM" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:RIMM) and current and former Company executive officers and directors for potential violations related to the backdating of stock options. On October 27, 2006, RIM announced that it is the subject of an informal inquiry by the SEC and that it had had communications with both the SEC and Ontario Securities Commission concerning its stock options practices. On September 28, 2006, RIM announced that it was completing a voluntary review of its historical option granting practices. The Audit Committee of the Company made a preliminary determination that GAAP accounting errors were made regarding certain historical stock options granted from fiscal 1998 to present. The Audit Committee made a preliminary determination that a restatement of RIM's historical financial statements will be required to reflect the accounting errors and that it is expected that the potential effect of a restatement will be to increase the amount of non-cash charges associated with past option grants which would reduce the amount of the Company's previously reported GAAP earnings by an aggregate amount of approximately $25-$45 million over the period since the Company's IPO in 1997.
