Reducing Oracle License Liability in M&A Activity

An outdoor furniture manufacturer was looking to acquire a company that had a significant but older Oracle infrastructure. In M&A activity, if there’s a large Oracle footprint and licenses have not been managed properly, the resulting liability can have a significant impact on the value of a company. The manufacturer learned this first-hand while growing though acquisitions.

Several red flags also pointed to a potential Oracle license liability: the company was running Oracle on a VMware environment, and had a perpetual license for ERP, and a limited-use Oracle database license. The potential non-compliance liability was over $1,000,000.
