Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

In connection with the proposed acquisition of RelateIQ, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“RelateIQ”), described in Item 8.01 below, salesforce.com, inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), adopted the 2014 Inducement Equity Incentive Plan (the “2014 Inducement Plan”), effective July 10, 2014. Upon the effectiveness of the 2014 Inducement Plan, the Company’s 2006 Inducement Equity Incentive Plan, as amended (the “2006 Inducement Plan”), was terminated. Termination of the 2006 Inducement Plan did not affect outstanding awards previously issued thereunder.

The 2014 Inducement Plan reserves 335,000 shares of Company common stock solely for the granting of inducement stock options and other equity awards to new employees, including employees of acquired companies. In addition, any shares available for issuance under the 2006 Inducement Plan as of July 9, 2014, and any shares subject to outstanding awards under the 2006 Inducement Plan that expire, or are otherwise forfeited to or repurchased by the Company following that date, will become available for future grant under the 2014 Inducement Plan, provided that the maximum number of shares that may become available for issuance under the 2014 Inducement Plan that were previously authorized for issuance under the 2006 Inducement Plan may not exceed 2,750,000.

The 2014 Inducement Plan was approved by the Company’s Board of Directors and was adopted without stockholder approval in reliance on the “employment inducement exemption” provided under Rule 303A.08 of the New York Stock Exchange Listed Company Manual.

The foregoing description of the 2014 Inducement Plan does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the 2014 Inducement Plan, a copy of which is filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1.

Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities

See the disclosure under Item 8.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K. In connection with the proposed acquisition of RelateIQ described in Item 8.01 below, the Company has agreed to issue shares of the Company’s common stock to RelateIQ stockholders in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement (as defined below). This issuance of shares will be made in reliance on one or more of the following exemptions or exclusions from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”): Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act, Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act, and Regulation S promulgated under the Securities Act.

Item 8.01. Other Events

On July 10, 2014, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”) to acquire RelateIQ. RelateIQ provides a relationship intelligence platform that uses data science and machine learning to automatically capture data from email, calendars and smartphone calls and provide data-science-driven insights in real time. Following the acquisition, RelateIQ will be a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, upon consummation of the acquisition, (i) all outstanding shares of RelateIQ capital stock will be cancelled and converted into shares of the Company’s common stock with an aggregate value equal to $350 million, plus the amount of RelateIQ’s cash balance on August 1, 2014 (which is currently anticipated to be approximately $40 million), subject to customary adjustments, and (ii) unvested stock options and other equity awards of RelateIQ will be assumed by the Company. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, the aggregate number of shares of the Company’s common stock to be issued in exchange for RelateIQ capital stock will be determined based on the volume-weighted average closing price of the Company’s common stock during the ten trading days ending on the second trading day before the closing of the acquisition (the “Company Trading Price”), provided that, for purposes of determining the aggregate number of shares of Company common stock to be issued under the Merger Agreement in exchange for RelateIQ capital stock, the Company Trading Price will not be more than 110% or less than 90% of the volume-weighted average closing price of the Company’s common stock during the ten trading days ending on the second trading day before the signing of the Merger Agreement. As a result, if the acquisition is consummated, the Company expects to issue between approximately 6.2 million and 7.6 million shares of Company common stock in exchange for the outstanding shares of RelateIQ capital stock.

The Merger Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants by the Company and RelateIQ. A portion of the aggregate consideration will be held in escrow to secure the indemnification obligations of the RelateIQ security holders. The closing of the acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals. The acquisition is anticipated to close in the Company’s third fiscal quarter ending October 31, 2014. The transaction is not expected to have an impact on the Company’s guidance for revenue, non-GAAP EPS or operating cash flow for fiscal 2015, as described in the Company’s guidance previously disclosed on May 20, 2014. The Company will provide GAAP EPS guidance for fiscal 2015 that takes into account the transaction after it has closed and the purchase accounting has been completed.
