Oracle CEO Larry Ellison’s had a hell of a week, hasn’t he? Yesterday, Oracle shrugged off concerns about a tech slowdown, besting Wall Street’s expectations with a 35% gain in its second-quarter earnings. And then today, shares of NetSuite, the “software as a service” venture of which he is a principal owner, priced at $26 a share in their IPO debut, well above the expected per-share price range of $19 to $22, which itself was $6 higher than $13 price initially set by underwriters.

NetSuite sold about 6.2 million shares in its modified Dutch auction IPO, raising$161.2 million. That makes the company worth more than $1.5 billion and the stake of its mercurial investor–who’s already No. 11 on Forbes list of billionaires–worth about $1 billion.
