REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., 06-JAN-2005 REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., January 6, 2005 - Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCL) today announced that it will complete its acquisition of PeopleSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: PSFT) Friday and is moving ahead quickly with the integration of the two companies.
Oracle's subsequent offering period under its tender offer to purchase all of the outstanding shares of PeopleSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: PSFT) expired at 8 pm New York City time on January 6, 2005. Including those shares tendered in the initial offering period, PeopleSoft stockholders have now tendered approximately 388,679,045 shares or more than 97 percent of PeopleSoft's outstanding stock. Oracle has accepted for payment all shares tendered in the offer.

The merger will occur on Friday, January 7.

I guess I will be receiving cash $26.50 per share, instead of Oracle shares. Is this correct?
