Companies will keep the code anyway. The requirement is:

"A Contributor may choose to distribute the Program in object code
 form under its own license agreement, provided that:
 iv) states that source code for the Program is available from such
 Contributor, and informs licensees how to obtain it in a reasonable
 manner on or through a medium customarily used for software exchange."
