Three-quarters of PeopleSoft shareholders approve Oracle's $10.3B acquisition bid. Oracle wants 90 percent for total control.

[From internetnews]

Oracle has taken majority ownership of PeopleSoft after that company's stockholders tendered roughly 75 percent of their shares in favor of the $10.3 billion acquisition.
