Oracle Buys Product Lifecycle Management Leader Agile

 

Enables Oracle to Deliver Best-in-Class, Integrated, Enterprise PLM

 

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., May 15, 2007 – Oracle announced today that it has agreed to acquire Agile Software Corporation (Nasdaq: AGIL), a leading provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software solutions, through a cash merger for $8.10 per share, or approximately $495 million.

 

Agile’s PLM solutions help engineers, manufacturing and supply chain professionals and business executives drive the product innovation and introduction process, share product specifications and configurations and collaborate effectively across the supply chain in a variety of industries, including high-tech, life sciences, industrial manufacturing and consumer packaged goods. Agile’s solutions help customers make better product portfolio decisions, accelerate new product introduction, improve manufacturing quality and manage regulatory compliance. Customers of Agile include Acer, Flextronics International, GE Medical Systems, Harris, Heinz, Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin, McDonald’s, Micron, QUALCOMM, Shell and ZF.

 

PLM is evolving into an enterprise-wide discipline that spans multiple product design systems and interacts with a wide-range of enterprise applications to manage the complete product lifecycle from concept and design, to production, sales and service. The combination of Agile and Oracle will create an integrated, enterprise-wide PLM solution. Additionally, Oracle’s commitment to open-standards based integration will enable users of other enterprise applications to utilize Agile’s best-in-class capabilities.

 

“Profitable product innovation is critical to product-based industries, making PLM one of the fastest growing application segments,” said Oracle President Charles Phillips. “The addition of Agile, which will serve as the foundation of our PLM offering, will further Oracle’s strategy of delivering industry-specific enterprise applications and allows us to offer yet another strategic application to SAP customers.”

 


 

“With over 1,250 PLM customers and over 10,000 visualization customers globally, Agile has a proven track record of rapid, successful implementations integrated to a wide range of ERP and CAD systems,” said Agile CEO Jay Fulcher. “By becoming part of Oracle we can bring Agile’s solutions to a wider audience and accelerate the advance of Enterprise PLM.”

 

The merger is subject to stockholder and regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions and is expected to close in mid to late July 2007. More information is available at http://www.oracle.com/Agile.

TO: Oracle Customers

FR: John Wookey

DT: May 15, 2007

Subject: Oracle Buys Product Lifecycle Management Leader Agile

 

On May 15, 2007, Oracle announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Agile, a leading provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software solutions. We expect the transaction to close in July 2007, subject to stockholder and regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions. Until the deal closes, each company will continue to operate independently, and it is business as usual.

 

Agile’s PLM solutions drive the product innovation and introduction process in a variety of industries, including high-tech, life sciences, industrial manufacturing and consumer packaged goods. These solutions help Agile’s 1,250 global PLM customers make better product portfolio decisions, collaborate across design and supply chain partners, accelerate new product introduction and manage compliance. In addition, through its Cimmetry Systems division, Agile has over 10,000 customers and is the industry standard for collaborative visualization.

 

As PLM evolves into an enterprise-wide discipline, it must span multiple product design systems, interact with a wide-range of enterprise applications and manage the complete product lifecycle from concept and design, to production, sales and service. The combination of Agile’s best in class PLM solutions, together with Oracle’s leading solutions in CRM, SCM and ERP will create a best-in-class, integrated, enterprise PLM solution. Additionally, Oracle’s commitment to open, standards-based integration will enable users of other, non-Oracle enterprise applications to utilize Agile’s best-in-class capabilities.

 

The anticipated benefits to our customers include:

 

o

Manage product information, processes, and decisions, across the lifecycle and across the global product network of design and supply chain partners

 

o

Manage product information across multiple design systems, with an agnostic approach to CAD and other authoring systems

 

o

Fully integrate with customer enterprise architecture - manufacturing, supply chain, fulfillment, service and customer - leveraging existing IT investments

 

o

Take advantage of proven 3rd party connectors that support integration with Oracle Applications and with SAP

 

o

Reduce total cost of ownership while increasing customers’ ability to operate an integrated, information driven enterprise

 

Oracle plans to continue to sell and support Agile products as standalone and as an integrated solution with both Oracle and non-Oracle environments. Existing customers of Oracle PLM will be supported and protected by Oracle, and customers will have the option to gain access to Agile’s best-of-breed product lifecycle management solutions and to their domain expertise. In addition, Oracle plans to continue its investment in the complementary product Oracle PIM Data Hub, with a planned integration to Agile PLM. This further strengthens our product master data management role in consolidating and managing the enterprise product record across heterogeneous environments.

 

We are excited about this acquisition and how it will strengthen our ability to provide product lifecycle management across our customers’ enterprises. Oracle representatives will be reaching out to you to answer any questions that you may have. More information about the transaction can be found at www.oracle.com/Agile.

Overview and Frequently Asked Questions

 

OVERVIEW

 

 

Oracle Buys Agile: Creates Best-in-Class, Integrated Enterprise Product Lifecycle Management

 

John – this is an entirely new overview section that replaces in its entirety the old overview section.

 

On May 15, 2007, Oracle announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Agile, a leading provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software solutions. We expect the transaction to close in July 2007, subject to stockholder and regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions. Until the deal closes, each company will continue to operate independently, and it is business as usual.

 

Agile’s PLM solutions drive the product innovation and introduction process in a variety of industries, including high-tech, life sciences, industrial manufacturing and consumer packaged goods. These solutions help Agile’s 1,250 global PLM customers make better product portfolio decisions, collaborate across design and supply chain partners, accelerate new product introduction and manage compliance. In addition, through its Cimmetry Systems subsidiary, Agile has over 10,000 customers and is the industry standard for collaborative visualization.

 

As PLM evolves into an enterprise-wide discipline, it must span multiple product design systems, interact with a wide-range of enterprise applications and manage the complete product lifecycle from concept and design, to production, sales and service. The combination of Agile’s best in class PLM solutions, together with Oracle’s leading solutions in CRM, SCM and ERP will create a best-in-class, integrated, enterprise PLM solution. Additionally, Oracle’s commitment to open, standards-based integration will enable users of other, non-Oracle enterprise applications to utilize Agile’s best-in-class capabilities.

 

The anticipated benefits to our customers include:

 

o

Manage product information, processes, and decisions, across the lifecycle and across the global product network of design and supply chain partners

 

o

Manage product information across multiple design systems, with an agnostic approach to CAD and other authoring systems

 

o

Fully integrate with customer enterprise architecture - manufacturing, supply chain, fulfillment, service and customer - leveraging existing IT investments

 

o

Take advantage of proven 3rd party connectors that support integration with Oracle Applications and with SAP

 

o

Reduce total cost of ownership while increasing customers’ ability to operate an integrated, information driven enterprise

 

Oracle plans to continue to sell and support Agile products as standalone and as an integrated solution with both Oracle and non-Oracle environments. Existing customers of Oracle PLM will be supported and protected by Oracle, and customers will have the option to gain access to Agile’s best-of-breed product lifecycle management solutions and to their domain expertise.  In addition, Oracle plans to continue its investment in the complementary product Oracle PIM Data Hub, with a planned integration to Agile PLM.  This further strengthens our product master data management role in consolidating and managing the enterprise product record across heterogeneous environments.
