Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Merger Agreement

On June 11, 2018, Workday, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) by and among the Company, Armadillo Acquisition Sub, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Merger Sub”) and Adaptive Insights, Inc. (“Adaptive Insights”), pursuant to which the Company would acquire all of the outstanding capital stock of Adaptive Insights through a merger of Merger Sub with and into Adaptive Insights, with Adaptive Insights surviving the merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Merger”).

The aggregate consideration payable in exchange for all of the outstanding equity interests of Adaptive Insights is approximately $1.55 billion (the “Merger Consideration”), consisting of cash payments to holders of shares of Adaptive Insight’s capital stock, vested stock options and warrants and the assumption by the Company of unvested stock options and unvested restricted stock units held by Adaptive Insight employees, worth approximately $150 million in aggregate. The Company will also issue new restricted stock unit awards worth approximately $50 million to certain continuing employees.

The Merger Agreement contains representations, warranties and covenants of the Company, Adaptive Insights and the Merger Sub that are customary for a transaction of this nature. Completion of the Merger will be subject to the satisfaction or waiver of customary closing conditions, including the expiration of the waiting period or receipt of approvals under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act and other applicable antitrust laws. The consummation of the Merger is not subject to a financing condition.

Item 8.01 Other Events

On June 11, 2018, the Company and Adaptive Insights issued a press release announcing the entry into the Merger Agreement. A copy of that press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
