July 28, 2005[From San Francisco Chronicle]
When Oracle Corp. took over PeopleSoft last year, it said it wasn't finished acquiring companies. The latest news has Oracle negotiating to buy a controlling stake in I-flex Solutions, an Indian firm that makes the world's best-selling banking software.
A source familiar with the deal said that Oracle has been talking with Citigroup, which holds a 43.1 percent stake in the firm, but that the deal is "not on the front burner now."
