DEC, INGRES END TALKS ON DEC INVESTMENT BUT CONTINUE PACT

By CBR Staff Writer

The talks between DEC and the supplier of its relational database for Ultrix, Alameda, California-based Ingres Corp, have terminated without agreement. Ingres and Digital were unable to agree on a strengthened alliance that was consistent with our respective strategies. We both view this as a missed opportunity but plan to continue to pursue our respective strategic directions, said Ingres chief executive Paul Newton. Both companies indicated that they would continue to work as partners under their current business relationships, but termination of the talks will intensify industry gossip that Ingres is for sale in its entirety. Most likely buyer would be a diversified software firm such as Computer Associates Inc rather than a manufacturer.
