The U.K.'s Competition and Markets Authority said Friday that it has cleared Salesforce.com Inc.'s (CRM) $15 billion acquisition of Tableau Software Inc.
The U.K. regulator said the acquisition won't be referred to a phase 2 investigation.
In October, the CMA said it would evaluate whether the deal resulted in the creation of a relevant merger situation under U.K. rules and, if so, whether that situation resulted or might be expected to result in a substantial lessening of competition in the country.
