Oracle is pushing for more money from SAP following the end of the TomorrowNow legal battle, according to widespread reports.
Although the firm was awarded a considerable amount in damages in November, since then it has decided to ask for $212m more in interest.
In November when it was announced that SAP would have to pay $1.3bn (£825m), the firm said it was disappointed by the verdict and would do all it could to appeal against it.
“The mark of a leading company is the way it handles its mistakes,” SAP said in November. “As stated in court, we regret the actions of TomorrowNow, we have accepted liability, and have been willing to fairly compensate Oracle.
“We thank the jury for its diligent service through this lengthy trial and the court for its supervision of this complex case.”
However, it appears that the case is not over, and despite SAP having already asked that its fines only run into tens of millions and not hundreds of millions, Oracle is after an extra $212m in interest, which would bring total fines up to $1.63bn.
In a statement, SAP told V3.co.uk: "We don't believe that Oracle is entitled to any additional compensation beyond the final judgment in this case. "
