Getting Used to the Silence from Sun Microsystems
Sun (JAVA) Microsystems will issue its quarterly financial results on Tuesday afternoon, right on schedule, despite the looming takeover by Oracle (ORCL). But Sun won’t hold a conference call; the company says it plans to simply post a press release and associated financial slides on its Web site.
That’s not surprising, given the circumstances. It’s certainly a change, though, for one of the chattiest companies in Silicon Valley. And it raises questions about what could happen, communications-wise, because of the deal.
Sun’s leaders have not said anything to speak of since the transaction was announced last Monday.
