Mergers and Acquisitions – and Oracle

What you need to know

Corporate M&A activity is on the rise. Whether it’s two public companies joining forces, or large entities being acquired by private equity firms, these structural changes to your firm must be rationalized to your Oracle contracts. Failure to account for your Oracle agreements in your M&A strategy may result in millions of dollars of non-compliance fees. The costs you were looking to take out of your business will be eaten up by unexpected Oracle fees.
