the FT article
SAP were charged and admitted guilt of the theft of Oracle software through its intermediary company Tommorow Now.
Oracle had asked for a payout of $1.7bn, which SAP had countered to $140m. SAP are considering post trial motions / appeal. Could this leave SAP in a weakened position / ripe for takeover? What will the eventual consequences be for SAP?"
