(AP) Oracle is trying to ward off a shareholder rebellion against policies that have consistently made its billionaire co-founder, Larry Ellison, one of the best-paid CEOs in the world.


The business software maker staunchly defended Ellison's pay packages in a letter sent to shareholder activist CtW Investment Group in an effort to rally support before Oracle's annual meeting on Oct. 31.


The letter released in a Wednesday regulatory filing came in response to a scathing attack that CtW launched last week against the compensation that Ellison has been receiving for years.


Oracle Corp. awarded Ellison a pay package valued at $78.4 million in its last fiscal year, down from $96.2 million the previous year.


Ellison could have made more last year if he hadn't turned down a $1.2 million bonus.
