With this acquisition, the position of Oracle Corporation will further strengthen in the domain of cloud-based back end automation software applications.

While informing about the financial terms and conditions of the deal, it was announced that the deal was sealed for $ 9.3 billion. The payment will be cleared in cash.

With this merger of NetSuite, Oracle will be able to compete in this domain more aggressively to achieve the business objectives.
While talking about the prices of this deal, Rodney Nelson, a market analyst of MorningStar research and analysis firm said, “It’s definitely pricey from Oracle’s perspective, but it’s understandable and it’s justifiable, especially in this environment, when we’ve seen software-as-a-service companies go as high as 10, 11, 12 times sales”.
