IBM may buy Sun

Posted by Bill Bradford on Mar 18, 2009

Multiple sources this morning indicate that IBM may be in talks to acquire Sun Microsystems.

The Wall Street Journal, quoting “people familiar with the matter,” reported Wednesday that International Business Machines was in talks to buy Sun for at least $6.5 billion in cash, a premium of more than 100 percent over the company’s closing share price Tuesday. Officials of Sun and IBM could not immediately be reached for comment.

No matter what happens, SunHELP will stick around. I’ve worked on this for twelve years now, I’m not about to give up and quit!
