BEA isn't against whoring itself out, it's just that it will only degrade itself for the right price.
That is, in summary, the middleware vendor's latest move in the takeover battle with Oracle. BEA has reached the conclusion that it has no future as an independent vendor. Al that is left is getting a good price. Oracle is offering $17, BEA is asking $21.
Investors clearly don't believe that BEA will get away with a 23 per cent price hike. The company's stock is currently trading around $17.5-$17.6.
