SAP Completes Acquisition Of SuccessFactors, Inc.

WALLDORF, Germany and SAN MATEO, Calif., Feb. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the successful closing of SAP AG's (NYSE: SAP) cash tender offer for all issued and outstanding shares of SuccessFactors, Inc. (NYSE: SFSF) ("SuccessFactors"), SAP and SuccessFactors today announced that SAP has completed the acquisition of SuccessFactors. The acquisition was completed via a short-form merger under Delaware law pursuant to which Saturn Expansion Corporation, an indirectly wholly owned subsidiary of SAP, was merged with and into SuccessFactors, with SuccessFactors surviving the merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of SAP America, Inc., the U.S. operating subsidiary of SAP AG. As a result of the merger, all outstanding shares of SuccessFactors  that were not tendered into the previously completed tender offer (other than shares held by SuccessFactors, SAP America or any of their wholly-owned subsidiaries, and shares held by stockholders that properly exercise appraisal rights under Delaware law) were converted into the right to receive $40.00 per share in cash without interest and subject to any required withholding of taxes, the same consideration paid to stockholders in the tender offer.

SuccessFactors has notified the New York Stock Exchange, Deutsche Boerse, and the Professional Segment of Euronext Paris of the completion of the acquisition and expects trading of shares of its common stock to be suspended on each exchange pending delisting of such shares.
