Will Oracle’s Top Institutional Shareholders Be Pleased By A Possible Acquisition?

Oracle Corporation(NASDAQ:ORCL), whose Chief Executive Officer is Larry Ellison, may be one of the bidders for the Anschutz Entertainment Group. AEG’s price tag of about $10 billion for the sports conglomerate is not likely to intimidate Ellison who recently set up a credit facility by pledging 139 million shares in Oracle. What he plans to do with that money is not yet clear, but he is reported to have said, “It was just in case I go shopping and something catches my eye.”

Will Oracle’s shareholders increase their holdings? They reported owning a total of 30.59 million shares on 09/30/2012. The shares closed at $31.40 on 09/30/2012.
