Dear Valued Agile Customer,
As was publicly announced on May 15, 2007, Im pleased to inform you that Oracle Corporation has entered into an agreement to acquire Agile Software. This transaction is subject to shareholder and regulatory approval and the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The transaction is expected to close in July. Until then, Agile and Oracle will continue to operate independently.
As youre no doubt aware, Oracle is the largest enterprise software company in the world, and this acquisition is a tremendous opportunity for all Agile customers. This acquisition validates Agiles commitment and dedication toward building a highly-valued, globally recognized company that is a force in the PLM industry with a great reputation for delivering value for our customers.
Oracles acquisition of Agile will result in a tremendous combination. Going forward, Agiles PLM solutions will serve as the foundation of Oracles PLM offering. Together, we will have a best-in-class, integrated enterprise PLM offering and will continue to sell, support and advance Agiles best-in-class solutions; integrated with both Oracle and non-Oracle environments.
In addition, our commitment to customer satisfaction will not change with the acquisition. In fact, we will be able to offer you even more value through an improved global sale, service and support operation that complements Agiles operations. You will benefit from the Agile team and our deep PLM domain knowledge becoming part of Oracles global 24x7 distribution and support network, with the backing of over 7,000 support personnel, 14,000 software developers and access to more than 15,000 business partners on 5 continents in 27+ languages.
We realize many of you will have questions regarding this announcement. Please be assured that all of your existing contacts for Agile remain the same. Should things change we will contact you through normal channels. For more information on the acquisition you can go to our website at www.agile.com/oracle.
This is an exciting time for Agile and our customers and we are truly grateful for your contributions to our success.
