The takeover would value Micros at more than $67
a share, the newspaper said. (http://on.wsj.com/1qDBeVn)
Micros Systems makes point-of-sale hardware and software for
restaurants and hotels. Oracle has been rolling out its own
cloud-based products and acquiring smaller cloud companies such
as marketing software maker Responsys Inc.
The deal, if confirmed, would be Oracle's largest acquisition
since it bought Sun Microsystems for $5.6 billion in 2009.
Bloomberg reported last week that the companies were in
Oracle and Micros Systems could not be immediately reached for
comment outside regular U.S. business hours.
