Salesforce held talks to buy Slack Technologies
Slack shares are up 63% this year
Salesforce.com has recently been in talks to buy Slack Technologies Inc., according to people familiar with the matter, a deal that would mark a big move by the corporate-software maker into office communications.

There is no guarantee the talks will lead to a deal and Salesforce could ultimately settle on another target, some of the people said.
