Oracle Acquires Stellent for Enterprise Content Mgt

Oracle agreed to acquire Stellent, a provider of enterprise content management (ECM) software solutions, through a cash tender offer for $13.50 per share, or approximately $440 million.

Stellent's Universal Content Management helps companies deploy multiple line-of-business applications -- such as public Web sites, secure intranets and extranets, compliance processes, and marketing brand management -- and also scale the technology to support multi-site management and enterprise-wide content management needs.

Oracle said the acquisition of Stellent will complement and extend its existing content management solution portfolio. Oracle Content Database enables enterprises to store and centrally manage unstructured content in Oracle databases.

  • In October 2006, Oracle agreed to acquire MetaSolv Software, a provider of service fulfillment operations support system (OSS) solutions, for approximately $219.2 million.

  • Earlier this year, Oracle acquired Portal Software, a global provider of billing and revenue management solutions for the communications and media industry, for approximately $220 million in cash.

  • In February 2006, Oracle acquired Sweden-based HotSip AB, a provider of telecommunications infrastructure software and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) enabled applications for IP telephony, presence, messaging and conferencing on new converged networks.
