Shares of Cerner, the electronic-medical-records company, soared in premarket trading Friday following a report that said Oracle would be buying the company in a deal that could be worth around $30 billion.

An agreement could be finalized soon, some of the people familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal. If the deal gets completed it would be Oracle’s biggest-ever acquisition, the Journal noted, and rank as one of the largest takeovers of the year.
