Twilio to buy cloud customer data startup Segment for $3.2 billion
  • Cloud communications platform provider Twilio plans to buy customer data infrastructure company Segment for $3.2 billion.
  • The deal, which had not been finalized as of Friday afternoon, was expected to be at least partially based on Twilio stock, the report added, citing two sources it did not name.
  • A fellow San Francisco-based company, Segment was founded in 2012 and appeared at No. 26 on this year’s Cloud 100 list of the world’s leading private cloud companies. The company had most recently raised $175 million in a Series D round led by Accel and GV announced in April 2019 at a reported $1.5 billion valuation.
