Statement From Salesforce.com

Combining ExactTarget with our existing Marketing Cloud provides synergy, and we will be reducing our total headcount by approximately 200 people globally to reflect this opportunity. We care deeply about our employees and we're providing resources to position them for success in the next step of their careers - whether that's a new position within salesforce.com or a new opportunity elsewhere.
