Oracle mentions that ByteDance will have no ownership stake in the new TikTok Global


Oracle, as it is, is one of the biggest and widest vendors in the enterprise IT market. As well as the shorthand name of its flagship product. That is a relational database management system, RDBMS which was initially called “Oracle Database”.

The database software is situated at the center of so many corporate IT environments. Allowing business intelligence, analytics applications, as well as a mix of transaction processing.

Oracle is known for selling enterprise software products (especially its own brands of database management systems), database software, and technology. As well as cloud engineered systems.

Also, the company is best known for its Oracle database system, which is a relational database management system. They are known also for computer systems. As well as software, which includes Java and Solaris that were gained in its purchase of Sun Microsystems in 2010. Oracle is located in Redwood Shores, California.


Oracle mentions that ByteDance will no ownership stake in the new TikTok Global. In a statement made on Monday to reporters, Oracle mentioned that its latest TikTok venture will be completely removed from ByteDance. That is an important break from former reports of the accorded deal between both companies. That is Oracle and TikTok.

The company statement to the reporters

The company mentioned something in a statement to the reporters. It said:

“Upon creation of TikTok Global, Oracle/Walmart will make their investment and the TikTok Global shares will be distributed to their owners. Americans will be the majority and ByteDance will have no ownership in TikTok Global”.


The statement is different from the former reports. Which displayed both Oracle and Walmart taking a 20 percent stake only in the latest venture. As well as ByteDance still keeping up with control of the other 80 percent. However, ByteDance has not openly renounced its claim to the company, and Oracle didn’t reply to a request for an explanation.

President Donald Trump to Reporters concerning Oracle

President Donald Trump told reporters on Monday that China would need to hand over control of the app so that the deal can run through.

The ability of TikTok to work around the US remains greatly in doubt. The Department of Commerce had made plans to impose sanctions on Friday against the company. Only to slow down the action just after the president gave the deal an informal approval over the weekend.

The lawsuit of TikTok against the department was dismissed intentionally in the wake of that extension. The president was supposed to formally remove the executive orders preventing the app later.

Government officials in China

Government officials in China have been cautious of any planned deal and put plans into disorder last month. Just when they initiated new export controls on algorithms like the one that generates TikTok’s For You page.

The recent proposal, which will see Walmart and Oracle each taking a minor stake in a recent US-based TikTok corporation. Was being placed as an agreement to keep away from those export controls.


However, many are still doubting if it adequately addressed national security concerns. It remains uncertain if the Chinese government will accept the latest arrangement. Or if it will just take further steps to stop it.
