The Plan was adopted by the Salesforce Board of Directors in July 2014, in accordance with New York Stock Exchange Rule 303A.08.
Datorama is a leading cloud-based, AI-powered marketing intelligence and analytics platform for enterprises, agencies and publishers.

Under the Plan, Salesforce granted a total of 68,963 restricted stock units ("RSUs") to 45 Datorama employees.
The RSUs vest over four years with 25 percent of the RSUs vesting on the first anniversary of the grant date and the balance vesting quarterly thereafter in 12 equal installments, subject to continued service through each applicable vesting date.
