Oracle publishes Autonomy ‘shopping’ slides

Further to some of my tweets yesterday -

“Either Mr Lynch has a very poor memory or he’s lying,” Oracle said in a statement. “‘Some bank’ did not just happen to come to Oracle with Autonomy ‘on a list.’ The truth is that Mr Lynch came to Oracle, along with his investment banker, Frank Quattrone, and met with Oracle’s head of M&A, Douglas Kehring and Oracle President Mark Hurd at 11am on April 1, 2011.”


“We have put Mike Lynch’s PowerPoint slide sales-pitch up on the Oracle website with the hope Mike Lynch will recognize his slides, his memory will be restored, and he will recall what he and Frank Quattrone discussed during their visit to Oracle last April,” the statement read. “Yesterday, the Autonomy CEO did not remember having any meeting with Oracle. Today, he remembers the April meeting and inaccurately describes how it came about and what was discussed. Tomorrow, he will need to explain his slides.”

Nice to see the ‘old Oracle’ back :-)
