Oracle Expects EU to Extend Review of Bid

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From ABC News]

Oracle submitted its $7.3 billion bid for PeopleSoft, another California-based business software company, in October. The European Commission has until next Monday to clear the deal or open an in-depth, four-month probe known as "phase two."
