I don't see the synergy with SalesForce. In addition, if they do want to buy them how much would they have to pay and what is the ROI. There are other options out there so not sure it would be a good investment.

Rumor has it that they will be paying ~$18B for it. My sense is SFDC is using this as a counter to Microsoft Teams being given away for “free” as part of buying Microsoft Dynamics - which is likely eating into their market share. SFDC is expensive as far as CRMs go and Dynamics is chipping away at that. Without this buy, Microsoft has the upper hand. Google will also likely buy Copper and normalize the enterprise offering with Google Chat. Once all of this is commoditized, it’ll come down to the best GTM strategy and the best sales relationships that win deals.

$27B... pretty good deal.
