Oracle's $5.3bn MICROS purchase gets EC thumbs-up

Oracle's $5.3m takeover of retail and hospitality technology firm MICROS Systems has passed the European Commission's regulatory hurdle but still faces an impending deadline for shareholder approval.

On Friday, the EC said the planned purchase of the Columbia, Maryland-based company, announced in late June, raises no competitive issues and can go ahead.

"The commission concluded that the proposed acquisition would not raise competition concerns because the combined market share of MICROS and Oracle is limited and many strong competitors would remain after the acquisition," the EC said in a statement.

The tech giant is offering $68 in cash for each common-stock share in the company, which sells mobile and cloud services, consulting, hardware, and point-of-sale software for restaurants, hotels and retail. In June, the MICROS board of directors unanimously approved the transaction.

Oracle said the tender offer for outstanding MICROS shares ends at midnight ET on Tuesday, 2 September.

"Consummation of the tender offer remains subject to MICROS Systems' shareholders tendering a majority of the outstanding shares of MICROS Systems common stock on a fully diluted basis," Oracle said in a statement.


At the time the planned acquisition was announced, there were suggestions that it was designed to divert attentionaway from a series of disappointing quarterly results from Oracle, a cloud strategy that is still forming, and concerns about application growth.
