Item 8.01 Other Events.

On December 23, 2015, salesforce.com, inc. (the “Company”) entered into a definitive agreement (the “Merger Agreement”) to acquire SteelBrick, Inc. (“SteelBrick”). SteelBrick is a next generation quote-to-cash platform, delivered 100 percent natively on the Salesforce platform, that offers apps for automating the entire deal close process-from generating quotes and configuring orders to collecting cash. Following the acquisition, SteelBrick will be a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, upon consummation of the acquisition, the Company will issue shares of Company common stock and assume stock options and other equity awards of SteelBrick for an aggregate consideration valued at approximately $360 million ($300 million net of cash acquired) after deducting consideration attributable to Salesforce Ventures’ existing investment in SteelBrick, subject to customary purchase price adjustments.
The Merger Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company and SteelBrick. A portion of the aggregate consideration will be subject to a retention holdback and a portion will be held in escrow to secure the indemnification obligations of the SteelBrick stockholders. Closing of the acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including the expiration or early termination of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act. The acquisition is anticipated to close in the Company’s first fiscal quarter ending April 30, 2016.
