(Reuters) – Canada’s BlackBerry Ltd <BB.TO> <BB.N> reported a loss for the second quarter on Tuesday, compared to a profit a year earlier, as the company spent heavily to integrate recently acquired Cylance into its suite of products.

Waterloo, Ontario-based BlackBerry, once known for its phones, said net loss was $44 million (35.3 million pounds) in the quarter ended Aug. 31, compared to a profit of $43 million a year earlier.

Total revenue rose about 16% to $244 million.
