Oracle Stages a Proxy War

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From internetnews.com]

In its latest pitch to take over its rival, Oracle (Quote, Chart) said it has initiated plans for a proxy fight this spring.

The Redwood Shores, Calif.-based software giant said it will nominate four men for PeopleSoft's (Quote, Chart) board of directors to take the control it needs to complete its hostile takeover bid of $24-per-share.
