Salesforce 買下 Slack

前陣子就有 Salesforce 要買下 Slack 的消息,剛剛確認了:「Salesforce buys Slack in a $27.7B megadeal」。

2019 年的時候花了 $15.3B 買下 Tableau (Salesforce bets on big data with $15.3 billion Tableau buy),這次則是 $27.7B...

從維基百科上翻了一下 Salesforce 手上買過的公司,看起來只有 Heroku 以及上面提到的 Tableau 比較熟悉...

這次併購對於 Slack 的人來說應該是好事?畢竟股價先漲了一波... 另外 Stewart Butterfield 不知道會再待多久,也許之後又會看到拉著 Cal Henderson 再幹一波?

Salesforce 打算買 Tableau

Saleforce 打算要買下 Tableau...

兩邊簽了協議並且都發了新聞稿出來,分別是 Salesforce 的:「Salesforce Signs Definitive Agreement to Acquire Tableau」,以及 Tableau 的:「Salesforce Signs Definitive Agreement to Acquire Tableau」。

這兩家都是掛在 NYSE 的公司,而這次的併購會直接以股票交易 (Tableau 的 1 股換 Salesforce 的 1.103 股,看起來是基於這三天股價計算):

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. and SEATTLE, Wash. — June 10, 2019 -- Salesforce (NYSE:CRM), the global leader in CRM, and Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA), the leading analytics platform, have entered into a definitive agreement under which Salesforce will acquire Tableau in an all-stock transaction, pursuant to which each share of Tableau Class A and Class B common stock will be exchanged for 1.103 shares of Salesforce common stock, representing an enterprise value of $15.7 billion (net of cash), based on the trailing 3-day volume weighted average price of Salesforce's shares as of June 7, 2019.

Salesforce 想要買 Tableau 是個蠻意外的新聞...
