The bad news just keeps rolling in at BlackBerry. Just one week after confirming it was actively looking for buyers, the Canadian handset maker has apparently now cut another 100 jobs.

The Financial Post reports that the redundancies are for personnel based out of the firm’s headquarters in Waterloo, Ontario, but doesn’t know if this move will effect some divisions worse than others.

In a statement, the PlayBook tablet maker said that it was in the ‘second phase of our transformation plan’.

This news less than a month after BlackBerry cut another 250 jobs at the company’s HQ. The firm recently established a special committee to look for a buyer.
