59名美国议员致信欧盟要求其尽快审批

   从2009年4月20日,Oralce宣布对Sun的收购至今,已经过去了七个多月,11月25日,59名美国议员致公开信于欧盟要求其尽快审批。

  大意如下:

       由于我们公认竞争是经济健康增长的柱石,我们希望利用这一机会与你们分享我们关于Oracle收购Sun这一提议的想法。另外,由于Sun的财务状况以及可能对公司雇员的负面影响,我们请求欧盟能尽快完成对这一交易的调查。

      在经过严谨的调查后,美国司法部门结束了对这一交易的审查,并决定不采取任何行动。事实上,司法部并没有找到任何书面证据表明这一并购会损害竞争。我们承认欧盟委员会有自主的权力对在欧盟市场开展业务的公司的交易进行彻底审查,此外,我们也理解委员会对数据库市场的担忧。然而,Sun公司向我们说明,它们的子公司在这一市场的年收入仅为1700万欧元,而同一市场的竞争者拥有数百亿欧元的份额。

        Sun的财务状况变得更加不稳定,而委员会的调查还在继续。已有担心公司是否还有能力继续雇佣数以千计的劳动力。由此,我们恳请欧盟委员会尽快完成对这一交易的调查。

       感谢你们对这一事件的关心。

Chargé d’Affaires Angelos Pangratis, Acting Head of Delegation, Delegation of the European Commission to the United States, 2300 M Street, NW, Washington, DC 20037.

Dear Chargé d’Affaires Pangratis:

As fellow government officials committed to the principle that competition is the cornerstone of healthy economic growth, we would like to take this opportunity to share our thoughts with you as to the proposed acquisition of Sun Microsystems, Inc. by Oracle Corporation. In addition, due to Sun Microsystems’ deteriorating financial condition and the possible negative effect on employment of the company’s workforce, we respectfully request the European Commission expedite the completion of its investigation into this transaction.

The United States Department of Justice, after an intensive investigation, closed its inquiry into this transaction without taking any action. In fact, the Justice Department did not find documentary evidence that this acquisition would harm competition. We recognize that the European Commission has a sovereign right to thoroughly investigate transactions where corporations utilize the European Union’s marketplace. Further, it is our understanding the Commission is concerned about competition in the database software market. However, we have been informed by Sun Microsystems that their subsidiary, which competes in this specific market, generates only generates only
