Oracle Said To Be After TikTok

There’s a new player who has joined Microsoft in an attempt to buy TikTok. That player is Oracle according to Business Insider:

Enterprise software giant Oracle has entered the race to acquire some of TikTok’s operations from its Chinese parent company ByteDance, the Financial Times reported Monday.

Oracle has been involved in preliminary discussions with several current US-based TikTok investors, including General Atlantic and Sequoia Capital, to purchase the app’s US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand operations, according to the report.

Oracle and TikTok both declined to comment and ByteDance could not immediately be reached.

What’s interesting about the Oracle bid is that Larry Ellison who founded Oracle is known to be a Trump supporter and current CEO Safra Catz was on Trump’s transition team. That in my mind may make the Oracle bid the preferred bid for the Trump administration. But we’ll have to see if Microsoft has anything to say about that.
