Poison Pill / Flip-in Cases

In 2004 PeopleSoft management attempted to use a poison pill that would be triggered when 20% of the company was acquired. Shareholder interest in accepting the takeover by Oracle Corp. eventually led to a merger of the two companies.

Cisco used to have a poison pill plan triggered when an individual or group acquired more than 15% of the company. The plan was set to expire in 2008. In March 2005 Cisco decided to end the shareholder rights' program citing revision of its corporate governance procedures.
