MOSCOW, April 20 (Reuters) – Microsoft Corp Chief Executive Steve Ballmer said on Monday he was ‘very surprised’ by Oracle Corp’s plans to buy Sun Microsystems Inc. “I just learnt it … I need to think about it. I am very surprised,” Ballmer told reporters in Moscow.
Loģiski, ka mazaismīkstais nebūtu priecīgs par šādu darījumu.
The deal would make Oracle the world’s fourth-largest maker of servers, with the No. 2 slot in the high-end of the market, which was worth about $17 billion last year. It is already the world’s No 2 maker of business software after IBM.
Oracle will pay $9.50 a share for Sun, which values the high-end server and software maker at about $7.06 billion, based on 743 million shares outstanding as of the end of its fiscal second quarter on December 28, according to Sun.
Vienīgi žēl, ka manā dzīvē nekas nemainīsies, jo man nav nedz Sun, nedz Oracle akcijas. 🙂
