InfoWorld: Inprise voices confidence in merger partner Corel

A spokesman for Inprise/Borland Friday said its merger with
Corel was on schedule despite a pending lawsuit, and she downplayed

Inprise, said Ottawa-based Corel’s 10-Q filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) needs to be seen in its

as required by the SEC.”

“She also characterized a lawsuit brought by a former member of
Inprise’s board of directors trying to block the merger as
“frivolous.”
