    Oracle Sees Takeover Opportunities OCTOBER 11, 2008

    If any company wants Actuate, now is the time. Challenge is they can offer $5/share and steal it. I would be shocked if Oracle doesn't make a bid for Actuate and/or Informatica in the next 30 days as they are steals.

      How do you get $5/share?
      The only link I see is that Nicolas C. Nierenberg, the Co-Founder has not been willing to sell below $5.

    • I do not think ACTU would sell that cheap.....their will be more then one bidder, if it starts out cheap....ORCL or IBM , or MSFT , will not allow ACTU to slip threw their fingers, at a cheap price...ACTU is a Strategic Play....with an , " in play ", new Grounded , Distribution Strategy ,of getting Embeded , with Global Clients. with best of breed , ubicquity tec platform , that others do not have or say , they have.....ACTU will now be able to provide deeper penetration , then the now existing only 5% , into todays customer base , as per CCalls,,..............That is the 95% growth story , the big boys want, for their share holders......& someone will pay for that growth....& not have to R & D. the product......& stop someone else from buying ACTU, cause , you may not want to compete, against ACTU in the market place....Hard Act To Follow....IMHO....
