  • Salesforce Eyes Slack Acquisition To Escalate Fight With Microsoft: Report

Salesforce has reportedly held talks to acquire Slack Technologies - a move that would allow the software giant to ramp up competition against Microsoft in the collaboration arena. Slack is now valued at $17 billion.

Along with its market leading CRM service, Salesforce also sells other enterprise applications and services focused on customer service, marketing automation, analytics, and application development.

Salesforce and Slack did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The report indicates that the deal would likely value Slack at more than its current $17 billion market cap. The San Francisco-based company, led by Marc Benioff, a year ago acquired Tableau Software Inc.in an all-stock deal valued at $15.3 billion.

Slack's stock price soared over 30% in Wednesday morning trading after the Journal broke the story, and it's now at $40.70 - up from $29.55 at the morning bell. Shares plummeted 19% in September after the company's quarterly billings fell short of analysts' estimates, as its small- and mid-sized business customers cut spending budgets.

Salesforce, which makes the U.S.'s dominant sales-tracking software, slid as much as 5.4%.

Salesforce is hosting its annual Dreamforce conference next week, which will be virtual because of coronavirus restrictions.
