NetSuite’s gain land as a deadline is coming for Oracle’s proposal offer for a company. Oracle pronounced Oct 7 that it has extended a proposal offer for a final time to Nov 4. NetSuite’s largest shareholder outward of Oracle CTO Larry Ellison is T. Rowe Price. The institutional shareholder has balked during a Oracle offer.
