PeopleSoft Spurns Oracle's Hostile Takeover Bid

As expected, PeopleSoft's board today said no thanks to Oracle's hostile offer to buy them. So, now the fight begins. In their statement on the matter, PeopleSoft was clearly trying to convince their shareholders of the damage the deal would do for them.

Now the question is how hard will Larry Ellison push for this deal, or will he just accept the fact that his publicity stunt worked and move on?
