Oracle CEO Doesn't Like Brocade in That Way

brocadethumbOracle may be mulling acquisitions, but Brocade isn’t one of them. At the company’s annual shareholder meeting today, CEO Larry Ellison dismissed recent speculation that he might attempt to to acquire Brocade. Said Ellison: “We are not interested in buying Brocade.”

Earlier this week, people familiar with the matter claimed that Brocade (BRCD) is seeking a buyer and that both Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and Oracle (ORCL) are among its potential suitors. They said no deal is imminent, but rumor that one might be coming drove Brocade’s shares up some 15 percent.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
