Corel was pretty much slaughtered on the market by Adobe but still 
continue to exist and make software. They were not bought by anybody, 
but bought themselves other products (like the popular PaintShopPro).
The current version of Corel Draw can import and export SVG.

Some years ago they were very near to bankruptcy, but an investment from 
Microsoft saved them (as a coincidence, shortly they dropped all the 
undergoing Linux efforts: the distro, the office suite port and the 
graphic apps port)
