Oracle beats Microsoft in bid for Tik Tok

September 14, 2020 15:00

Oracle Corp., the US software giant, has beaten Microsoft in the bid for Tik Tok, according to sources consulted by Bloomberg. This will allow the Chinese short video application to continue operating in the United States since President Donald Trump warned of the ban on the Chinese social network if it did not reach an agreement with a US company before September 15.

This ultimatum is part of the trade war between China and the United States, as Trump considers Tik Tok a threat to national security, like other Chinese companies such as Huawei, which has already suffered restrictions on US soil.

It is not yet clear that the White House will approve the operation or if Chinese officials will finally agree to the sale or restructuring of Tik Tok. Microsoft had positioned itself as the most likely option but finally ByteDance, the owner of the application, rejected their offer.

The shares of Oracle rose dramatically in the pre market today. Here are some points to consider in the context of this big move:

  • Oracle closed with a fall of half a percentage point last Friday
  • In the pre-opening of today, in the early hours, they were trading higher than 12%
  • Oracle has appreciated by 45% on the stock market in the past five years
  • So far, in 2020 it has risen just over 7%.

The company's stock has demonstrated solid performance throughout 2020 so far.
