Tuesday, June 23 Oracle Corp. is expected to release declining sales for the fourth quarter of the year, but according to some experts the business software company finished the period strongly. Oracle is scheduled to report its quarterly results when the market closes. The company is now on the way to finish its $7.4 billion take-over acquisition of Sun Microsystems Inc., a transaction that stunned the technology world when both companies announced it in April.
