Twilio today announced its largest acquisition to date – leading API emailing platform Sendgrid in an all stock offer of US$ 2b.

“The two companies share the same vision, the same model, and the same values,” said Twilio  co-founder and CEO Jeff Lawson  in today’s announcement. “We believe this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring together the two leading developer-focused communications platforms to create the unquestioned platform of choice for all companies looking to transform their customer engagement.”

SendGrid  will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Twilio and its common stock will be converted into Twilio stock. The companies expect the acquisition to close in the first half of 2019, after it has been cleared by the authorities.
