Salesforce Completes Exchange Offer for MuleSoft Common Stock

SAN FRANCISCO, May 2, 2018 — Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), the global leader in CRM, today announced the successful completion of its previously announced exchange offer for all of the outstanding shares of Class A common stock and Class B common stock of MuleSoft, Inc. (“MuleSoft”), at a per share price of $36.00 in cash and 0.0711 of a share of Salesforce common stock, together with cash in lieu of any fractional shares of Salesforce common stock, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes.

The exchange offer expired at 11:59 p.m., New York City Time, on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 and was not extended. As of the expiration of the exchange offer, a total of approximately 74,639,665 shares of Class A common stock of MuleSoft and 37,210,949 shares of Class B common stock of MuleSoft were validly tendered in the exchange offer and not validly withdrawn, representing approximately 83% of the aggregate voting power of the shares of MuleSoft common stock outstanding immediately after the consummation of the exchange offer. All shares that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn have been accepted by Salesforce for payment in accordance with the terms of the exchange offer.

Salesforce completed the acquisition of MuleSoft today through a second-step merger of a wholly-owned subsidiary of Salesforce with and into MuleSoft, in accordance with Section 251(h) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware. Each remaining share of Class A common stock and Class B common stock of MuleSoft not purchased in the exchange offer (other than shares held in the treasury of MuleSoft and any shares owned by Salesforce, MuleSoft or any of their respective subsidiaries and shares held by any MuleSoft stockholder who has validly exercised its appraisal rights under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware) was converted into the right to receive the same $36.00 in cash and 0.0711 of a share of Salesforce common stock, together with cash in lieu of any fractional shares of Salesforce common stock, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes, that will be paid in the exchange offer. Upon completion of the merger, MuleSoft became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Salesforce.
