Montreal Gazette: No stopping merger – Inprise deal will get done, Cowpland tells Corel shareholders

“Coates, who owns about 5 per cent of Inprise’s outstanding

quite happy with the firm’s performance over the past
year.

“Not only has the company returned to profitability, but its
shares were trading as low as $2 on the Nasdaq exchange about a

picture for Inprise, whose share price has more than tripled since
last April.”
