Looking forward, the company now expects adjusted earnings of $4.92 - $4.94 per share and revenues of $30.9 billion - $31.0 billion. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters currently estimate earnings of $4.73 per share and revenues of $30.99 billion.

Salesforce announced that Bret Taylor will step down as Vice Chair and Co-CEO of Salesforce, effective January 31, 2023. At that point, Marc Benioff will be Chair and CEO of the company.

"I am grateful for six fantastic years at Salesforce," said Taylor. "Marc was my mentor well before I joined Salesforce and the opportunity to partner with him to lead the most important software company in the world is career-defining. After a lot of reflection, I've decided to return to my entrepreneurial roots. Salesforce has never been more relevant to customers, and with its best-in-class management team and the company executing on all cylinders, now is the right time for me to step away."
