Rightnow Technologies, Inc - Recent Material Event

Item  1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On October 23, 2011, RightNow Technologies, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“RightNow”), OC Acquisition LLC (“Parent”), a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Oracle Corporation (“Oracle”), and Rhea Acquisition Corporation, a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Subsidiary”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which, subject to satisfaction or waiver of the conditions therein, Merger Subsidiary will merge with and into RightNow (the “Merger”), with RightNow surviving as an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Oracle.

Subject to the terms of the Merger Agreement, which has been unanimously approved by the board of directors of RightNow, at the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), each share of RightNow common stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be converted into the right to receive $43.00 in cash, without interest (the “Merger Consideration”).

At the Effective Time, the unvested portion of each RightNow stock option and restricted stock unit (the “Equity Awards”) that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time and held by a person who is an employee of, or a consultant to, RightNow or any subsidiary of RightNow as of immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be assumed by Oracle and converted automatically at the Effective Time into an option or restricted stock unit award, as the case may be, denominated in shares of Oracle common stock (the unvested portion of each such assumed Equity Award, the “Assumed Equity Award”), except that (1) the number of shares of Oracle common stock subject to each such Assumed Equity Award shall be determined by multiplying the number of shares of RightNow common stock subject to the unvested portion of such Equity Award immediately prior to the Effective Time by a fraction (the “Award Exchange Ratio”), the numerator of which is the per share Merger Consideration and the denominator of which is the average closing price of Oracle common stock on Nasdaq over the five (5) trading days immediately preceding (but not including) the Effective Time and (2) if applicable, the exercise or purchase price per share of each such Assumed Equity Award shall equal (x) the per share exercise or purchase price of the unvested portion of each such Equity Award immediately prior to the Effective Time divided by (y) the Award Exchange Ratio (rounded upwards to the nearest whole cent).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) the vested portion (including any portion that pursuant to its terms becomes vested solely as a result of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement) of each outstanding Equity Award as of immediately prior to the Effective Time and (ii) the vested and unvested portion of each outstanding Equity Award held by a person who is not an employee of, or a consultant to, RightNow or any subsidiary of RightNow immediately prior to the Effective Time shall not be assumed by Oracle and shall, immediately prior to the Effective Time, be cancelled and, in exchange therefor, each former holder of such Equity Award shall have the right to receive an amount in cash equal to the product of (x) the aggregate number of shares of RightNow common stock subject to the vested portion of such Equity Award immediately prior to the Effective Time and (y) the Merger Consideration less any per share exercise price of the vested portion of such Equity Award immediately prior to such cancellation.

The Merger Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of RightNow and Parent. RightNow has agreed, among other things, not to solicit alternative transactions. RightNow has also agreed, subject to certain exceptions, not to enter into discussions concerning, or provide confidential information in connection with, any alternative transaction. In addition, each of the parties have agreed to use their reasonable best efforts to cause the Merger to be consummated. The Merger Agreement also requires RightNow to call and hold a stockholders’ meeting and for RightNow’s board of directors to recommend that RightNow stockholders adopt the Merger Agreement.

The Merger Agreement contains certain termination rights for both RightNow and Parent, and provides that, upon termination of the Merger Agreement under specified circumstances, RightNow may be required to pay Parent a termination fee of $59.7 million (the “Termination Fee”), including if it accepts a superior acquisition proposal, and, under certain other limited circumstances, RightNow may be required to pay Parent a separate fee of $18.3 million, which would be credited against the Termination Fee. RightNow may also be required to reimburse Parent for up to $5.0 million of its out-of-pocket expenses in connection with the transaction.

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 hereto and is hereby incorporated into this report by reference. The Merger Agreement has been included to provide investors with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about RightNow or Parent. In particular, the assertions embodied in the representations and warranties contained in the Merger Agreement are subject to qualifications and limitations agreed to by the respective parties in connection with negotiating the terms of the Merger Agreement, including information contained in a confidential disclosure schedule provided by RightNow to Parent in connection with the signing of the Merger Agreement. The confidential disclosure schedule contains information that modifies, qualifies and creates exceptions to the representations and warranties set forth in the Merger Agreement. Moreover, certain representations and warranties in the Merger Agreement were used for the purpose of allocating risk between RightNow and Parent rather than establishing matters as facts. Accordingly, you should not rely on the representations and warranties in the Merger Agreement as characterizations of the actual state of facts about RightNow or Parent.

                Concurrently with entering into the Merger Agreement, certain directors, executive officers and stockholders of RightNow, who collectively beneficially own 16.4% of the voting power of RightNow common stock, entered into Voting Agreements with Parent (collectively, the “Voting Agreements”) pursuant to which they agreed, among other things, to vote their shares of RightNow common stock for the adoption of the Merger Agreement and against any alternative proposal and against any action or agreement that would frustrate the purposes of, or prevent or delay the consummation of, the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement. The foregoing description of the Voting Agreements does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of Voting Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is hereby incorporated into this report by reference.
