Exhibit 4 4 to the Declaration o f Paul K. Meyer in Support o f Plaintiffs' Opposition
to Defendants' Motion for Partial Summary Judgment ( " M e y e r Declaration") is an excerpt from an SAP document entitled "SAP AG, Fair Value o f Certain Assets, Liabilities and Legal Entities o f Business Objects S.A. As o f January 21, 2008." Exhibit 44 contains non-public, commercially sensitive and confidential information, the disclosure o f whieh would create a risk o f significant competitive injury and particularized harm and prejudice to SAP. Specifically, Exhibit 44 consists o f a non-public October 5, 2008 analysis by Dcloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP o f the fair value o f certain assets and liabilities o f Business Objects S.A., which SAP acquired on January 21, 2008. Disclosure o f this information would grant S A P ' s competitors, partners, customers, future acquisition targets, and other interested parties insight into S A P ' s internal assessments, strategy and operations, providing them with an unfair competitive advantage over SAP with respect to current and future operations and negotiations. Additionally, disclosure o f this internal and highly-sensitive information about the value o f the assets and liabilities o f a recent acquisition could potentially affect stock values. This document is treated as confidential within SAP. 1 also understand that Defendants have protected Exhibit 44 from improper public disclosure through the Stipulated Protective Order ("Protective Order") that is designed to prevent the parties' private, commercial information from being improperly disclosed. Under the terms o f the Protective Order, Defendants have designated Exhibit 44 " H i g h l y C o n f i d e n t i a l - Attorneys'

In particular, disclosure o f the royalty payments SAP has paid to Oracle over the last seven years would impact o t h e r reseUer relationships SAP maintains with other database vendors. Permitting S A P ' s other database partners access t o information regarding the price SAP pays to license Oracle database technology would provide these entities with an unfair competitive advantage with respect to future negotiations regarding their ongoing database licenses with SAP. SAP treats the amount it has paid Oracle in royalties pursuant to the parties' database reseller agreement a s confidential and does not permit public disclosure o f this infonnation. I declare under penalty o f perjury under the laws o f the United States and the State o f California that the foregoing is true and correct.
