Jim Goodnight and John Sall, who co-founded SAS years ago, made a U-turn on their original decision which the Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

Monday’s report revealed that talks were underway between semiconductor company Broadcom and SAS to reach an agreement that will allow Broadcom to buy the SAS Institute, which is estimated to be worth $15-20 billion.
