Last week we reported that Salesforce might acquire Slack. Today, CNBC reported that this deal is now confirmed, and Salesforce might officially announce the Slack acquisition tomorrow after the market closes. Salesforce is planning to acquire Slack through half cash and half stock deal.
Salesforce’s big acquisitions so far:
- Tableau – $15.3 billion
- MuleSoft – $6.5 billion
- ExactTarget (Salesforce Marketing Cloud) – $2.5 billion
- Demandware (Salesforce Commerce Cloud) – $2.5 billion
- ClickSoftware – $1.35 billion
Slack may end up being the largest acquisition by Salesforce. Slack’s current market capitalization is $24.57 billion. So, Salesforce may pay about $30 billion to acquire Slack.
