Take it from a former PR guy. This is the sort of quote you include in an acquisition press release when you're struggling to explain your rationale to the Street:

"The proposed acquisition of Acme Packet is another important piece in Oracle's overall strategy to deliver integrated best-in-class products that address critical customer requirements in key industries," said Oracle President Mark Hurd. "The addition of Acme Packet to Oracle's leading communications portfolio will enable service providers and enterprises to deliver innovative solutions that will change the way we interact, conduct commerce, deliver healthcare, secure our homes, and much more."
