NEW YORK--(Business Wire)--
WeissLaw LLP, a national class action and shareholder rights law firm with
offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is investigating possible breaches of
fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of Acme
Packet Inc. ("Acme" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: APKT) arising from its agreement
for Acme to be acquired by Oracle Corp. ("Oracle") in a transaction valued at
approximately $1.7 billion. Under the terms of the proposed transaction Acme
shareholders will receive $29.25 in cash for each Acme share they own. 

WeissLaw LLP is investigating whether Acme`s Board acted in the best interests
of its public shareholders by actively shopping the Company to maximize
shareholder value for Acme`s public shareholders, prior to entering into the
proposed transaction with Oracle. The offer price is a significant discount to
Acme`s 52-week high of $36.27. 

If you own Acme shares and would like more information about your rights as a
