VLOCITY ACQUISITION: The company announced with its earnings report that it entered into an agreement to acquire Vlocity, a provider of industry-specific cloud and mobile software built natively on the Salesforce platform, for approximately $1.33B. The purchase price will be paid in cash and the assumption of outstanding unvested equity awards held by Vlocity employees.

ANALYST VIEWS: In May, Oppenheimer analyst Brian Schwartz raised the firm's price target on Salesforce to $195 from $165 and kept an Outperform rating on the shares. While the analyst acknowledges that the company is not immune from the COVID-19 issues, he believes the high priority SaaS enjoys across global enterprises is broadly unchanged. Jefferies analyst Brent Thill also raised the firm's price target on Salesforce to $205 from $180 and kept a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst noted that his survey of over 50 partners indicated that over 70% saw their CRM pipelines decrease due to the pandemic, but longer term, he sees its pipeline remaining robust. Additionally in May, RBC Capital analyst Alex Zukin lowered the firm's price target on Salesforce to $210 from $230 but kept an Outperform rating on the shares. The analyst said the company is not immune to the global demand trends, but he continues to see its Service Cloud, Commerce Cloud, Healthcare, FinServ and Contact Tracing efforts driving bookings momentum.

Earlier in Tuesday's session, Build-A-Bear Workshop updated its financial guidance for fiscal year 2019 ahead of its presentation at the 22nd Annual ICR Conference. The company is raising its guidance for fiscal 2019 from what was previously issued on December 5. On a preliminary basis for the 2019 fiscal year the company expects: Total revenue for the fiscal year to be in the range of $334M to $338M compared to $336.6M in fiscal year 2018. The projected total revenue for fiscal 2019 includes fourth quarter total revenue that is expected to be flat to slightly positive reflecting growth in December and continuing momentum in the final month of the period. The Company believes that it has benefitted from its gift giving programs including stronger gift card sales leading to higher redemption rates post-holiday; it also expects to deliver its ninth consecutive quarter of double-digit eCommerce growth; Pre-tax income to be in the range of $0.1M to $2.0M compared to a pre-tax loss of $18.5M in fiscal year 2018; and Cash and cash equivalents to end the year in the range of $25M to $30M compared to $17.8M at the end of fiscal 2018; the Company is projected to have no borrowings under its revolving credit facility at year-end. Sharon Price John, Build-A-Bear Workshop Chief Executive Officer commented, "We are pleased to have seen a positive shift in sales trend as the fourth quarter progressed leading into the peak holiday period and sales have continued to grow post-holiday with stronger gift card redemption levels and positive consumer response to our newest merchandise offerings leading us to increase our guidance for the year. In addition to the improvement in our retail store base, we are also pleased with the continuing progress in our eCommerce segment which we expect to deliver a ninth consecutive quarter of double digit growth, a pattern than has been consistent since we implemented an upgrade to our platform in 2017. While we expect traditional retail to remain challenging on a macro basis, we believe that our projected results for 2019 demonstrate the long-term viability of our strategic plan to diversify our retail portfolio, leverage consumer affinity and demand for our strong brand and advance key initiatives that we expect to further evolve our business model into margin-accretive revenue streams." Shares of the company are up 15% or 5c per share to $3.90 per share in afternoon trading.
