Salesforce.com Completes Tender Offer For All Outstanding Shares Of ExactTarget

SAN FRANCISCO, July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM), the world's #1 CRM platform ( http://www.salesforce.com/), today announced the successful completion of its previously announced tender offer for all of the outstanding shares of common stock of ExactTarget ( ET) at a price of $33.75 per share, net to the seller in cash without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes.

The tender offer expired at midnight, New York City Time, at the end of the day on Wednesday, July 10, 2013. As of the expiration of the offer, a total of approximately 64,237,892 ExactTarget shares were validly tendered in the offer and not validly withdrawn, representing approximately 89.7% of the outstanding common stock of ExactTarget. In addition, notices of guaranteed delivery were delivered with respect to approximately 1,601,949 shares, representing approximately 2.2% of the outstanding common stock of ExactTarget. All validly tendered shares have been accepted for payment, which will be made in accordance with the terms of the tender offer.

Salesforce.com will acquire all of the remaining outstanding shares of ExactTarget common stock by means of a merger under Delaware law. In order to accomplish the merger as a "short-form" merger, salesforce.com currently intends to exercise its "top-up" option pursuant to the acquisition agreement, which permits salesforce.com to purchase additional shares of common stock directly from ExactTarget for $33.75 per share (the same purchase price paid in the tender offer). At the effective time of the merger, ExactTarget will become a wholly owned subsidiary of salesforce.com, and each share of ExactTarget's outstanding common stock will be cancelled and converted into the right to receive the same consideration received by holders who tendered their shares in the tender offer. Thereafter, ExactTarget common stock will cease to be traded on the NYSE.
