Customers and Partners,
On April 28, 2016, Oracle announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Textura, a leading provider of construction contracts and payment management cloud services. The proposed transaction is expected to close in 2016. Until the transaction closes, Oracle and Textura will continue to operate independently.
Textura's cloud services process $3.4 billion in payments for over 6,000 projects each month, helping keep projects on time and under budget while reducing risk for developers, contractors and subcontractors. Textura offers its cloud services in a consumption model preferred by the engineering and construction industry whereby the companies involved pay based on project activity. Further, usage of Textura's cloud services creates a network effect that benefits all participants as more than 85,000 general and subcontractors are connected to the platform.
Oracle Primavera offers a complete suite of cloud solutions for project, cost, time and risk management. The Oracle Primavera flagship products have been completely re-architected for the Cloud, and the result is a set of cloud services that are growing rapidly as construction and engineering companies embrace digital transformation. Together, Oracle Primavera and Textura will form the Oracle Engineering and Construction Global Business Unit offering a comprehensive cloud-based project control and execution platform that manages all phases of engineering and construction projects.
Oracle is committed to protecting and enhancing customer investments in Textura's solutions. By combining Textura with Oracle Primavera to form the Oracle Engineering and Construction Global Business Unit, Textura management and employees will maintain their focus on serving customers. Oracle's industry organizations maintain unique domain knowledge, specialized expertise and focused product investments, which currently includes more than 22,000 Oracle employees and over $700 million in annual R&D spend. This model has proven highly successful across several industries, and we look forward to bringing these same benefits to the customers of Textura.

Thank you for your continued support.
