|Schedule 13D||Page 3 of 9|
|Item 1.||Security and Issuer|
This Statement of Beneficial Ownership on Schedule 13D (the Schedule 13D) relates to the shares of common stock, $0.0005 par value (the Common Stock), of ExactTarget, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Issuer). The principal executive offices of the Issuer are located at 20 North Meridian, Suite 200, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204.
|Item 2.||Identity and Background|
This Schedule 13D is being filed by salesforce.com, inc., a Delaware corporation (salesforce.com). The address of the principal office of salesforce.com is The Landmark @ One Market Street, Suite 300, San Francisco, California 94105.
Salesforce.com is a provider of enterprise cloud computing services and was founded on the simple concept of delivering customer relationship management applications via the Internet, or cloud.
The name, present principal occupation or employment, present business address and country of citizenship of each director and executive officer of salesforce.com is set forth on Schedule A attached hereto.
During the past five years, neither salesforce.com nor, to the best of salesforce.coms knowledge, any director or executive officer of salesforce.com, has been (i) convicted of a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or (ii) a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.
|Item 3.||Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration|
On June 3, 2013, salesforce.com entered into an Acquisition Agreement (the Acquisition Agreement) by and among salesforce.com, Excalibur Acquisition Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of salesforce.com (Merger Sub), and the Issuer. Pursuant to the Acquisition Agreement, and upon the terms and subject to the conditions thereof, Merger Sub will commence a cash tender offer (the Offer) to purchase all of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Issuer (the Shares) at a price per share of $33.75 (the Offer Price), net to the seller in cash, without interest. Under the terms of the Acquisition Agreement, following the completion of the Offer, Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Issuer, pursuant to which the Issuer will become a wholly owned subsidiary of salesforce.com (the Merger). In the Merger, all then outstanding Shares, other than Shares held by salesforce.com, Merger Sub and the Issuer, and Shares held by stockholders who have validly exercised their appraisal rights under the Delaware General Corporation Law (the DGCL), will be cancelled and converted into the right to receive the Offer Price.
In order to induce salesforce.com to enter into the Acquisition Agreement, each of Scale Venture Partners III, LP, Rory T. ODriscoll, Scott S. McCorkle, Julie M.B. Bradley, Timothy B. Kopp, Traci M. Dolan, Battery Ventures VIII Side Fund, L.P., Battery Ventures VIII, L.P., Matthew W. Ferguson, Timothy I. Maudlin, Michael M. Brown, David L. Yuan, TCV Member Fund, L.P., TCV VII (A), L.P., TCV VII, L.P., Scott M. Maxwell, Scott D. Dorsey, Steven A. Collins and Andrew J. Kofoid (collectively, the Stockholders) entered into support agreements with salesforce.com (the Support Agreements) concurrent with the execution and delivery of the Acquisition Agreement. As represented by the Stockholders in the Support Agreements, as of June 3, 2013, an aggregate of 18,181,865 shares of the Issuers Common Stock were beneficially owned by the Stockholders. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Support Agreements, each Stockholder agreed, among other things, (i) to tender their Shares in the Offer, (ii) not to transfer any Shares or enter into any agreement relating thereto, except under certain circumstances set forth in the Support Agreement, (iii) not to tender any Shares into any tender or exchange offer commenced by a person other than salesforce.com, Merger Sub or any other subsidiary of salesforce.com, (iv) to vote their Shares in favor of the adoption of the Acquisition Agreement, against approval of any proposal made in opposition to or in competition with the Offer or the Merger, and against any other action that could impede or interfere with the Offer or the Merger, and (v) not to solicit, initiate or participate in discussions with third parties regarding other proposals to acquire the Issuer. Each of the Stockholders also granted certain representatives of salesforce.com an irrevocable proxy granting such salesforce.com representatives the right to vote Shares held by such Stockholders in favor of such matters. Each Support Agreement will terminate upon the earliest of the effective time of the Merger (the Effective Time), the termination of the Acquisition Agreement, the reduction in the price to be paid in the Offer or the merger consideration, or a change in the form of consideration to be paid in the Offer or in the form of merger consideration.
|Schedule 13D||Page 4 of 9|
The proposed transaction is valued at approximately $2.5 billion. Salesforce.com will have sufficient funds to consummate the purchase of Shares in the Offer and the Merger and the other transactions described above, and will cause Merger Sub to have sufficient funds available to consummate such transactions.

The foregoing descriptions of the Acquisition Agreement and the Support Agreements do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to such agreements. A copy of the Acquisition Agreement is attached as Exhibit 1 to this Schedule 13D. A copy of the form of Support Agreement is attached as Exhibit 2 to this Schedule 13D.

If the Offer is consummated, Merger Sub will be entitled to designate a number of persons to the Issuers board of directors that reflects Merger Subs proportionate voting interest in Issuer. Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions applicable to the Offer pursuant to the Acquisition Agreement, after consummation of the Offer, salesforce.com shall cause the Merger to occur. Upon the consummation of the Merger, (i) the Issuer will become a wholly owned subsidiary of salesforce.com and (ii) each Share which has not been purchased pursuant to the Offer will be converted into the right to receive $33.75 in cash, subject to certain exceptions set forth in the Acquisition Agreement.

Following the Merger, the Shares will no longer be traded on the New York Stock Exchange, there will be no public market for the Shares, and registration of the Shares under the Exchange Act will be terminated.
Except as set forth in this Schedule 13D and in connection with the Merger described above, salesforce.com has no plan or proposals that relate to or would result in any of the transactions described in subparagraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.
