Oracle CEO Larry Ellison Rips "Vindictive" HP Lawsuit
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., September 7, 2010
Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) today issued the following statement:
"Oracle has long viewed HP as an important partner," said Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. “By filing this vindictive lawsuit against Oracle and Mark Hurd, the HP board is acting with utter disregard for that partnership, our joint customers, and their own shareholders and employees. The HP Board is making it virtually impossible for Oracle and HP to continue to cooperate and work together in the IT marketplace."
