On February 28, 2013, salesforce.com, inc. (the Company) made the following communication available to institutional shareholders:
We wanted to bring to your attention that Glass, Lewis & Co., one of the leading institutional proxy advisors, recommends that salesforce.com shareholders vote FOR the increase in authorized common shares. Glass Lewis concluded, ...the Company has an additional need for shares to accommodate its planned forward stock split with the intent of lowering the per share price of the Companys common stock to attract increased investment and liquidity. In light of this factor, we believe that the proposed increase in shares is reasonable. Accordingly, we recommend that shareholders vote FOR this proposal.
The Board of Directors of the Company unanimously recommends that stockholders vote for the increase in authorized common stock at the Special Meeting of Stockholders scheduled for March 20, 2013.
