Oracle announces final extension of tender offer for NetSuite to expire Nov. 4

Oracle (ORCL) announced that it has extended the expiration of its tender offer for the acquisition of NetSuite (N) to Friday, November 4. This will be the final extension that Oracle is obligated to make under the merger agreement. In the event that a majority of NetSuite's unaffiliated shareholders do not tender sufficient shares to reach the minimum tender condition, Oracle will respect the will of NetSuite's unaffiliated shareholders and terminate its proposed acquisition. Napa Acquisition Corporation, a subsidiary of OC Acquisition LLC, a subsidiary of Oracle, has extended its all-cash tender offer for $109.00 per share for all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value of $0.01 per share of NetSuite to 12:00 Midnight, Eastern time, at the end of Friday, November 4, 2016. Per the terms of the merger agreement, a majority of the unaffiliated Shares, or 20,403,928 out of 40,807,854 total unaffiliated Shares, must be tendered in order for the minimum condition to be satisfied and the tender offer to be completed. In aggregate, there are approximately 81,474,150 Shares issued and outstanding as of October 5, 2016.

Oracle reported 'strong cloud results,' says SunTrust

He keeps a $48 price target and Buy rating on the stock.

Oracle shares cheap, cloud results positive, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Richard Davis said Oracle reported solid organic growth for its cloud business, including software licenses and cloud SaaS and PaaS. The analyst believes continued cloud success will weigh on margins and the decline in Hardware revenues will weigh on the overall businesses. However, Davis said Oracle shares remain sufficiently inexpensive to maintain as a Buy with a $45 price target.

Oracle miss due to 'transitory issues,' says Bernstein
After Oracle reported weaker than expected Q1 results, Bernstein analyst Mark Moerdler blames the miss on "transitory" factors, including foreign exchange headwinds and increased borrowing costs, as well as weakness in businesses on which the company is "less concerned with." The analyst says that the company's cloud business exceeded expectations, and he notes that its overall software revenue increased last quarter. He keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Oracle removed from Select List at Stifel

NetSuite takeover price likely to increase, says JMP Securities
JMP Securities analyst Patrick Walravens believes that Oracle's (ORCL) $109 takeover offer for NetSuite (N) will probably increase, partly because a majority of shares owned by those who are not insiders must vote to approve the transaction. The analyst notes that T. Rowe Price (TROW), which controls 18% of such shares, opposes the deal at the current price. Walravens adds that NetSuite appears to have failed to "canvas the market," as required by Delaware law. He raised his price target on NetSuite to $121 from $100 and keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.
