"Hiroko past players were probably did anyway. But that's the thing. Why did they buy them like the did they think they were buying the next generation of category leader among those things that was going to surpass microsoft and those ways or not and if they're looking at slack to be is this their third attempt or maybe even more than that to by the next generation tool are they buying it at the peak and it's going to product atrophy from here and therefore people are gonna go start. Ups are going to go. Use the next generation of of collaboration software that that is the biggest existential risk in the scenario eight-plus yells. Let's ablett's we'll. We'll do the exciting stuff. A+ plus to me is that slack on its own has been a reasonably high growth sas company and they were six and sales forces successful at buying fast-growing sas revenue. And now they get to pump it through their channel and their channel receives it well and they just like are able to massively increase revenue growth for slack and have more and more companies adopt it in fact they may even be able to convinced a large companies. Maybe not an enterprise but large companies that You know it's now a trustworthy vendor. It's not some startup. They're buying with a full seal of approval for sarah from salesforce and that comes with a microsoft like not quite microsoft but microsoft like level of. Yes i authorized this use at at the thirty to fifty thousand seats throughout my organization. So maybe there's a new market unlock there. I think that makes sense. I think actually to me. That's like a a a minus to a probably a. I think the plus is this catalyze is a the salesforce. The anti microsoft alliance centered around salesforce as a totally viable and successful new distribution channel. For best of breed sas companies and we see superhuman go into the fortune one hundred and we see coda go into the fortune. One hundred and notion and figment figment doesn't need any help. But all of those new sas products. Now use this as a distribution channel whether salesforce them. We're not probably not but now this opens up the door to whole new markets for them. I like that take mine is somewhere similar in just a little bit more around slack. Connect really being what they think. It's going to be not just creating the work kind of social network or this horizontal layer but also making being a target in salesforce a better experience kind of like humanizing. The whole sales process a little bit Versus getting hit some awful drip campaign so to me it. It can make the sales process writ large a little bit more enjoyable than that's a win while creating all these links between all these companies and really kind of building this network up awesome. Well i think that listeners is the complete set of opinions that we have on the deal with the facts that we have today a mere two hours after the deal was announced any closing thoughts before we we wrap up and do our low closing here a blast. It was super. I time being on youtube to if you're listening to the pot it's it's fun.

"Something that we chat win challenge each other on in the office. I love that point. I think that like the worst nightmare for slack is that chat gets good in apps and suddenly. I'm like oh yes. Lack i pop in there to like drop a gif in random. Happy birthday to be a big use case right but yeah to the extent that works stops. I mean it's funny where work happens to the extent that work gets federated and happens in apps rather than in the central communication nexus. They're in big trouble. And i love your idea of Open up the slack. Api not in a way. That's like bill bill bots within slack but in a way that's like imbed slack in your apps so that you don't have to roll your own 'cause it's a crap ton of work anytime anybody anybody's like well let's implement chat like zoom. As example. a chat is awful. Like sometimes randomly alpes to lincoln. It won't hyperlinked. Like i mean there's this is a massively successful company with a just a chat. Where every time. I try and send a message to one person i accidentally sent it to everyone and i think that like There's there's huge defensive opportunity for slack to be the way that you implement chat and your app and they just started hitting at it to before this he's on he went on the twenty minute. Vc with higher settings and talked about kind of being this connective tissue between different than what the next level of integration looks. Like for slack. Way to do this. I think to be able to embed slack in different asks your point everything they've done. That seems really simple. And that makes chat seem really simple is really really hardly. I included the graph of all of the decision tree that needs to happen to decide whether at eight. Oh five pm to send you a notification if i slack you and it's really complicated and there's all that stuff that you can just offer as a service products that would have been interesting. Maybe we'll still be interesting in the combined company. What if if you're more knowledgeable than me. Because i've only used the product a little bit. Can we double click on discord bit and talk about how that's different and why it's maybe more suited to this. I don't know it. probably the wrong word. But imbedded type case or link coexisting with the actual apps let me. I make my snarky comment. Which was if you thought slack was unintuitive to learn. Wait till you see discord software. This really made me feel old using and my my second you know the the other side of that when she is viewed as a positive. It's much more customizable not like crazy. I mean it's not my space with an open. Html canvas but it's you know it's the android to apple's.

"This is the beginning of the re bundling of enterprise sales like we spent the last five to eight years in an era of well. If you think back fifteen years ago bring your own device happened and then the last five to eight years it was anybody with a credit card gets to buy any old sas service and there's subscription fatigue in a big way at at any company. I mean we were twenty two company. A ps l. We have a spreadsheet to manage all the subscriptions that everybody signed up for. and then there's harassing at the end of every month. Who signed up for this card. I can only imagine how painful that is at at enterprises and so you have to imagine too if salesforce is kind of saying actually we have the opportunity to run the microsoft playbook here And we're gonna continue seem more more consolidation here to alleviate the pain of procurement around basically people going around procurement. And i think i don't know i think that's an interesting point. And i can't imagine that as the companies that are used to buying microsoft and oracle and even for us and all those kind of age out that the new wave of startups like you know what we really love to buy from is salesforce or really. Love to buy from microsoft. Maybe there's this transition period that we're in which is like a five to ten year thing. But i think the way that that ends up getting solved as is their companies like ramp on the corporate card side that that is trying to show you. You're spending one place. Show you where you can save. And so whether it's a corporate card whether it's a software solution that kind of comes in and replaces the spreadsheet there. I think there will be other solutions than company is growing tech. Companies are bigger and bigger part of the market. And i can't imagine that the enjoy working salesforce more than they. Eight men expenses and pack. You raise a great point too i. It's sort of novice of me to suggest that the point of integration in twenty twenty one would be the same as the point of integration in two thousand five like the re bundling won't happen in the same way that got unbundled. The re bundling will be at the credit card level. Or you know now not going to go build the microsoft bundle. The way microsoft built the microsoft bundle makes fun indeed indeed well speaking of prognosticating about the future and strategic decisions in the landscape. I don't think we can leave this section without talking abou what i think you read about really eloquently in your piece about your take on the bear case for slack as an independent company And this actually totally jives with our friend. Cheaper over emergence is about to publish a blog post about this like the the flip of this being an investment. The he calls it deep collaboration. But like that. They're all these other workflow apps out now whether it's fig mo- notion or whatever that actually have chat and collaboration built into them see you don't need to go over to slack in order to collaborate on a document or if you're working on legal document with ironclad or something like that. Let's talk about that. Because i think this is a really astute observation. That's fascinating at a lot of this comes from kevin. Kwaku is more more than than i am on on these things but the point being that his point that he makes a great piece that he wrote on on slack is that slack is really a once. Every piece of what business dies has a figment like software that has collaboration embedded then slack becomes this kind of like backup. Use it for emergencies. Something has gone wrong in the collaboration tools. Oh let's go over to slack and chat about it or it kind of becomes what email is today which is like you..

"I to thirty six million in free cash flow this quarter. So that's a really nice company and kind of the thing that you expect to happen when you spend a lot of money to acquire customers up front and then over time they retain more of the cash drops to the bottom line. So it's a moderately sized business right like you're paying twenty seven point seven times next month's revenue so it's not a not a cheap multiple on the business there by any stretch of the of the united nation at a what is cheaper expensive these days like i don't even know so it's it's not cheap. Nothing's cheap right now. We'll see if you think it is strategic that they just push it through the salesforce distribution channel. But you're essentially paying twenty seven twenty eight times next month's revenue for this business but a business that is still growing forty to fifty percent year over year a business that does have phenomenal margins and a business that is increasing. Its free cash flow to pretty rapid rate here. What's the a. I don't know if you had time to look yet at the You said it was two forty revenue for this quarter or two thirty five. Something tuna thirty five million a year over year growth rate is that still sustaining and forty cents a day. They sold last quarter. It was forty nine percent year. This quarter was thirty nine percent year. Some genetic growth. That's so they had a bunch of good news to announce this quarter is an slack. Connect but yeah. That's that's got to be a pretty concerning top line number like if you're because there's no reason that should be slowing rate lake. There should be tailwinds at the company's back that should still be getting net expansion now in the beginning of the pandemic that expansion got hit because companies were laying people off and so that was leading to contraction in monthly revenue in their existing accounts. But i gotta think most of that's behind them so interesting yeah paid customers one hundred and forty percent year over year end points connect endpoints up two hundred forty percent year. I'm looking to see if the talk about net expansion because that's obviously been something that they've been pretty pretty proud that does not show up at least in the press release and so maybe you know if that contracts again from one thirty before the pandemic to one twenty five now one twenty and revenue slows a little bit. That begins to paint a picture that maybe wanna get out before that happens here. That's the to me. That's a big question here which is lake. Okay we've talked about a lot of the strategic reasons to do this deal. I'll make sense and whatnot but the did just flip into cash flow positive territory. Then being slack they were still growing rapidly. They're still top core tile in all these bessemer emerging cloud index metrics. Why sell hideo lake having unless they just felt like they were going to continue to get hammered by wall street and didn't want to deal with that but like fifty five percent premium. David like i you know. That's pretty rare as a public company to get we in the past. We've looked at these and we've said like well. Twenty percent premium is basically baseline..

"To also find natural ways to be your your external tool which is kind of an interesting analogy to salesforce where salesforce is away. Salesforce is an internal but it measures all of your external communications external deal status. And so there's gotta be some again on the actual product implementation but you can see how that philosophically aligned with worse like wants to go. And there's this great tweet and i think they are to this point but discreet slash tweet from two thousand thirteen people saying we want dead. We wanted email data cold and in the ground. They've been kind of dancing with whether or not very email killer a very long time but it seems like that's exactly. What are the best parts that you used the way back machine and you had slacks like marketing positioning and how to like. I think this is the to me. This is the whole point of the story year. Which is like the pros and cons to slack and like they've done some really good stuff for the past year and they've done some took stuff and i think one of the things they've done not so good on the hell is this positioning like i get stored quote like i get it on site to you gotta use it not come on man. You're like an eight year old company at this point in your public company you gotta be able to explain what you do simply and like even as a public company. They've been just iterating iterating. They've been massively changing their main marketing message several times. Well i give them. Credit for that they they they became. They went from a thing that was like trendy in startups to like useful in addition to all your other forms of communication to. Oh my god. We're all working from home and now it's essential so like they're they're they're full pivot to like where your virtual office. I can't remember exactly what the phrases. But i think it transitioned from like where work happens to your virtual office more power to him for that fair enough but there was the moment in there was like where the email killer and that resonates with people like. I think you know. It doesn't describe what they do but something as simple as we kill. Email is something that people can really rally behind the versus. We're wear work happens. People know what that means there is like maybe it was a philosophy major and logistician and all of that and maybe there is too much of an emphasis on getting those words exactly right versus just resonating with what people wanted the product to do it is also a classic sort of pr. Move to describe a problem and let people assume you are the answer to it and assume it in their own way. Because i in fact salesforce has a great example of this and we at a snarky comment about with their old. No software slogan..

"I mean this is a distribution deal right like this is not like the product velocities. Not going to change. Salesforce is probably not going to integrate the slack product deeply into the existing salesforce. I mean they say they are. But it's unlikely. I think it looks a lot more linked where it's a totally separate thing. And they leverage the salesforce distribution to be able to get it into more enterprises. That sounds right the becky. I think you made the point. Several times slacks growth store over really. Its whole life as a company has been. We get small innovative organizations to start using the product And sometimes that's small innovative organised teams within larger companies. But oftentimes it start ups. We get them to start using the product and then it grows as those companies grow weaker and you made the point. That like yes. You're spending all the sales and marketing to acquire these customers early on but then there's those customers grow and they retain and they And they expand with you like that's gonna lead to a free cash flow monster hopefully in the future What's missing from that. Playbook is a credible way to go get the big organizations and this feels like the unlocked to that. Yeah this makes sense. The only question in my man then is if you look at it. Like great sales for Slack a great way to you know index startups. Basically if you wanna make a bet that startups grow and then have lots of money to spend in the future because their cash generating machines and need lots of great tools like salesforce actually ends up. Investing is a migration path from you've loved slack and now we make it easy to onboard to the full. You know salesforce. crm sweet. I just don't you know it's probably my product background. But like i don't. I don't see that it's hard for me to imagine like what that bridge looks like where you're like. Oh great you and your teams have all been communicating in this place and therefore somehow your salesforce. Crm implementation will now be easier. Well i think the big thing here and they've they mentioned in the press releases well is slackened connect and to the extent that you think can act will be a way that teams can that the company can communicate with all of the different partners clients that it has been that makes a ton of sense for a salesforce integration where you're not just plugging into email and tracking your email conversations but have your lead right. There you clicked started started slack channel. And then you're in conversation right. Within the sales force brat so to the extent that there is an integration. That's where i see that happening slack. Report their numbers and they grew from three hundred. Eighty thousand Ten points to five hundred and twenty thousand slack. Connect points in the last quarter alone and so this is a huge area. Focus for the business. Maybe retrospect raring up for a salesforce. Acquisition could certainly does make a lot more attractive as that committing ben thompson called it The work social network. But certainly i think that's the most appealing piece of the bra salesforce. Let's talk a little bit more about slack. Connect well why is it so strategic for slack and this has the drum that they've been beating basically not their whole life as a public company but most of it right. Yeah i think it's it's strategic for slack for someone stewards talked about the product and how to describe it in a read about this in the piece of beating.

"Have shared zoom accountant. We assume in one link. it's really easy for zoom to grow. Where a slack you to set up an oregon to build your integrations your to do all those things that pay off over time so and there's no reason why anyone would join slack. Let alone join slack as a paid member unless you're part of a company whereas there are specially post covid like a million use cases. Y you know like my parents have paid slack as paid account now sick of that forty minute limit. You're just gonna pay out fourteen bucks a month and say you go for it. I think that's been the big thing. Then there's other things like chat is just annoying and distracting in particular right now. Be like another slack notification. I'm sick of this. But the real the real reason is kind of separate as been. I think that that teams berg is yeah paki how much of give us a sense of the relative user accounts of microsoft teams versus slack and then on the microsoft teams one You made a great point around. It's actually more of zoom competitor than it is slack competitor key dive into that a little bit. Yes i think would say that. Microsoft teams has about ten times the number of users as big cross made with a hundred million dollar ring hundred million injuries elaine whereas lacks in that twelve million range and they haven't really reported numbers recently on that they also have a really growing and we'll talk about that one of the reasons salesforce spotted but this growing connection between companies and that's growing super fast but microsoft team. It's it's not architecture. The same way that slack is that you can just continually add teams within your organizations. Have different kind of sub channels. It's limited in the number of teams that you can set up. You have to be really really thoughtful from day one in how you set up your channels in your teams within within teams getting using the nomenclature there. But it's not meant to be a ten thousand person org chat tool. It's meant to be the hub for all things microsoft within an organization and so that's really good because you're able to grow. Microsoft is phenomenal at distribution. Might i don't use a pc. My wife and my mother-in-law do and i go to their computer. Sometimes when they're opening it teams just pops up even though they're not team users and so the active users got. I think in slack is called this out in the past is potentially a bit inflated ever i mean back in the ayrshire days they were including three sixty five in the azer numbers into the report. Numbers the like. Oh it's like it was it was it was microsoft's fastest business ever to a billion dollars in revenue but i'm pretty sure that included the internal accounts as as revenue drivers. So they're up to their after their old tricks again. And in this case depending on how you think. Salesforce competes with microsoft kind of worked right. I really do think an independent slack is a threat than microsoft strategy. a microwave using its distribution. Kind of bully pulpit really knocked out competitor here. So what do you think like yeah. This is super interesting. Why we'll get back to slack itself and salesforce in a minute. But why do you think microsoft. Why don't we think microsoft took this approach of so directly comparing teams to slack. Because it's as you point out in your in your piece. And i think it's really not leagues. Zoom is the big competitor for teams. And yet you don't hear microsoft talking about zoom at all like what's what what's the thinking here..

"I think that puts the low dollars a share range and that's right now and i really think slacks potential long-term as they build and grow and they keep retaining growing the customers so i was really hoping that this was kind of a three to four stock. It's just such a rarity right now during raw virus to find sas company that you think somehow and now have to go back to the drawing board and find kind of what the next what. The next slack is fed underpriced sas companies. That are growing at forty nine percent year over year are hard to come by right now totally. I mean that's leak. I mean we might as well just give right into like what. What was the disconnect here because this is crazy like other sas company out there especially you know work from home. Stock has been just off to the races and like what has kept slack so beaten down for so long. The biggest number one thing is kept slack. Beatdown down is just the threat of microsoft teams and not just kinda specter microsoft teams but microsoft teams. Microsoft generally has gone after slack. By name and stewart. Talk about it. That's because if slack threatens emailed. An outlook is threatened and then the whole microsoft suite is threatening so they've put particular emphasis on the fact that they're crushing slackens latinos twelve million years whatever and then microsoft reports that they're just flying by slacking when they released their charts showing that they're passing slack jawed atypically. They put slacks name right on the chart and call them out. And according to stewart. That's on the nobody. Except maybe larry ellison at oracle a couple decades ago ever would have done calling out a competitor by name and so this is like real kind of threat that microsoft felt again to slack until they put everything they had going after slack. And so i think you can look at the numbers a couple of different ways you can either say. Slack is growing faster than forty nine fifty four companies or slacken zoom really kind of the two most public facing or consumer e of all of the work from home stocks and zoom is growing at three hundred percent in slacks. Only forty nine percent was wrong with this company. That's one of the reasons that i love it so much. Long-term there's i think. Switching costs in mozart general and are these double edged swords and zoom. Doesn't really have a moat red. But it's really easy to pop on zoom..

'cause he didn't want to preface that bruce wayne or hawaii guy seventy two assigned so he got the memo. He got he got he got post today. In salesforce earnings twenty seven point seven billion dollar total purchase price works out to i think forty five eighty six a share in cash and stock think mo little heavier on the stock than the cash. Piece i think if i'm right But roughly fifty fifty fifty five fifty seven percent stock That's a fifty five percent premium to where slack was treating before the news was leaked last week. Eighty five percent premium to the most recent slack stock price crash after their their earnings in september should be clear. Is this the first time that the price per share is above there. The first day of trading. I think I think it might be certainly. Don't think it's been this high but like reminiscent of dropbox. That way it sort of never really kinda traded down and then flat and then down and then flat and we've we've been kind of in one of the flat spots for a while and So let's see slack is going to remain independent. Stewart is staying with company staying. See of slack Deal is expected to close next. Year still has to get shareholder approval from slack shareholders which we might discuss disgust pack thoughts on that and it is the largest software deal since ibm red hat two years ago in two thousand eighteen. Wow is it really. I guess yeah. I guess he don't see these these public public mergers often. Yeah when i think they'll actually pure software deals. I can't i can't think of anything else.

Buying something that was started decades probably one deck with yet multiple decades after their founding because when was salesforce salesforce was early two thousands right or i think it was late nineties. Ninety nine nine hundred ninety nine. I think started.
