Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
The information provided in Item 2.03 below is incorporated by reference herein.
Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.
On July 21, 2021 (the “Closing Date”) the Company completed the acquisition of Slack Technologies, Inc. (“Slack”), pursuant to that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of December 1, 2020 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among salesforce.com, inc. (the “Company”), Skyline Strategies I Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub I”), Skyline Strategies II LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub II”), and Slack. On the Closing Date, pursuant to the Merger Agreement, and upon the terms and subject to the conditions therein, Merger Sub I merged with and into Slack (the “First Merger”), with Slack surviving the First Merger and continuing as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. Immediately following the First Merger, Slack merged (such second merger together with the First Merger, the “Mergers”) with and into Merger Sub II, with Merger Sub II continuing as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. At the effective time of the Second Merger, Merger Sub II was renamed Slack Technologies, LLC.
Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the First Merger (the “First Effective Time”), each share of Class A common stock, par value 0.0001 per share, of Slack and each share of Slack Class B common stock, par value 0.0001 per share, of Slack (collectively, the “Slack Shares”) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the First Effective Time (other than Slack Shares owned directly or indirectly by the Company, Slack or any of their respective subsidiaries immediately prior to the First Effective Time or Slack Shares covered by Slack restricted share awards) was automatically converted into the right to receive 0.0776 shares of common stock, par value 0.001, of the Company (the “Company Shares”) and $26.79 in cash, without interest and subject to applicable withholding taxes (the “Merger Consideration”).
The foregoing descriptions of the Mergers and the Merger Agreement in this Item 2.01 do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, a copy of which was filed as Exhibit 2.1 to Salesforce’s Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 1, 2020, and is incorporated herein by reference.
Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
In connection with the completion of the Mergers, on the Closing Date, the Company, Slack, Merger Sub II and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”) entered into that certain Second Supplemental Indenture (the “Second Supplemental Indenture”) to the Indenture, dated as of April 9, 2020 (the “Base Indenture” and, together with that certain First Supplemental Indenture, dated as of February 10, 2021 (the “First Supplemental Indenture”), and the Second Supplemental Indenture, the “Indenture”), by and between Slack and the Trustee, relating to Slack’s $862.5 million in aggregate principal amount of 3.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Convertible Notes”), pursuant to which Merger Sub II assumed Slack’s rights and obligations with respect to the Convertible Notes.
As a result of the Mergers, and pursuant to the Second Supplemental Indenture, the Convertible Notes are no longer convertible into Slack Shares. Instead, subject to the terms and conditions of the Indenture, the Convertible Notes will be convertible into cash and Company Shares in proportion to the Merger Consideration payable pursuant to the Merger Agreement, pursuant to the “Reference Property” provisions in the Indenture. This Current Report on Form 8-K does not constitute an offer or solicitation with respect to any securities.
The foregoing descriptions of the Base Indenture, the First Supplemental Indenture and the Second Supplemental Indenture do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Base Indenture, the First Supplemental Indenture and the Second Supplemental Indenture, copies of which are attached as Exhibits 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 hereto, respectively, and incorporated by reference herein.
