It isn't about saving Zend from financial ruin. Its about grabbing a 
hold of their market share and profits. If they buy Zend, they own all 
of the Zend products. Then they get the money from selling them and they 
can control the development. They can make Zend products really easy to 
integrate with Oracle. That means people will be more likely to buy 
Oracle products.
