A lot of speculation began early last week that Vurv had been acquired and the deal would be announced as soon as May 1st. As we all know, this space is always abound with speculation. I have probably heard unsubstantiated rumors about every vendor when it comes to mergers and acquisitions.
Last week, I would have sided with them raising additional capital instead of opting to sell. I typically don’t like to feed speculation but, over the past few days, their have been a handful of indications that suggest it just might actually be true. Frankly, I struggle to think of a vendor that would be a great fit with them today. If the rumor is true, though, it would change the talent acquisition/talent management landscape overnight, with, in my opinion, Taleo receiving much of the benefit in the short term.
We’ll see what happens tomorrow.
