TEL AVIV, Jan 16 (Reuters) - Salesforce.com is in talks to acquire U.S.-Israeli software developer ClickSoftware Technologies for around $1.5 billion, the Calcalist financial news website reported on Wednesday.
U.S. private equity firm Francisco Partners bought ClickSoftware in 2015 for $438 million and delisted the provider of cloud-based field service management software from Nasdaq.
If a deal goes ahead, it would be the second significant acquisition by Salesforce in Israel in less than a year after it paid $850 million for Datorama, an Israeli cloud-based artificial intelligence marketing platform.
Officials at Salesforce in Israel declined to comment on the report. ClickSoftware officials were not immediately available for comment. (Reporting by Tova Cohen Editing by Steven Scheer and Louise Heavens)
