Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell on Friday:
BlackBerry - The troubled smartphone maker is looking to the possibility of going private, according to Reuters, citing several sources familiar with the matter. The company's CEO Thorsten Heins and the board is increasingly coming around to the idea that taking BlackBerry private would give breathing room to fix problems out of the public eye, sources said.
Onyx Pharmaceuticals - The pharmaceutical company said its process of seeking a buyer for the company is "ongoing" with multiple parties engaged. Separately, the company reported a narrower-than-expected loss as revenue more than doubled on sales of cancer drugs.
