NEW YORK, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Eloqua Inc. ("Eloqua" or the "Company")(NASDAQ: ELOQ)(ISIN: US2901391043) (CUSIP: 290139104) concerning the proposed acquisition of Eloqua, Inc. by Oracle Corporation in a transaction valued at approximately $871 million, net of Eloqua's cash.

The investigation concerns whether the Eloqua directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value.  Under the terms of the agreement, Eloqua shareholders will be entitled to receive $23.50 per share in cash for each share of Eloqua common stock.  However, Eloqua shares traded above the offered price within the past two months and an analyst recently set a target price of $26.00 per share.

Eloqua shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.

The firm is also investigating actions on behalf of shareholders for the following companies: Arbitron Inc., Caribou Coffee Company, Inc., Net1 Ueps Technologies, Inc., Epoch Investment Partners, Inc., Hi-Crush Partners LP, Intermec, Inc., SandRidge Energy, Inc., and Clearwire Corporation.
