    In The Event ACTU, Buys Another Company

    Thanks for your point of view.

    I believe IBM would be friendly, but I don't see $10/share, maybe $6.

    Oracle's could be $5 or $5.5 and could be hostile.

    Tech companies shut down their acq., we will know when they think it has bottomed, when we start see some

    • The reason , I say $10.00 is cheap , is because Pete , has put a value on the company...By saying , ......We built a 140 mil company , on about 10,000 developers.....Then he said , we sit back in our chairs , & think what it would be like to have 4 million developers wake up to ACTU technology....Now I know that will take awhile.....but , Pete made it clear , that we will get the lion;s portion.....So , that is the value ACTU has made to share holders....Truth is , if Actuate can sell their commercial BI software to 1% then they have hit a home run. If they sell to 5% then it will be a grand slam....IMHO
