Inside the Oracle-Agile Deal | AMR Research
My first meeting with Agile Software was in the spring of 1999. Bryan Stolle, Agile’s founder and former CEO, used the time to preview the IPO road show pitch that he would be presenting later that afternoon to Charles Phillips, Morgan Stanley’s star analyst. As First Thing Monday readers know, Mr. Phillips is now the co-president of Oracle. On Tuesday, Oracle acquired the product lifecycle management (PLM) vendor for $495M in cash, or approximately $8.10 per share.
