Just a wild, out in left field, off-the-wall guess -- Oracle promised Orly and his lieutenants the yellow brick road of mega-millions in Oracle options ... the premium paid wasn't that big when shareholders were planning on CY Tier1 LTE start-up, MetroPCS footprint, and the announced China penetration. The historical, big-time gainers in the stock market are execs with options.
Meaningless commentary *dachmeister4u* as ALL THAT MATTERS ON THIS BOARD IS IF ONE CAN MAKE MONEY VIA MAKING SUCCESSFUL EQUITY INVESTMENTS IN GENERAL AND IF ONE CAN MAKE MONEY VIA MAKING SUCCESSFUL EQUITY INVESTMENTS IN SONS SPECIFICALLY.
