Salesforce shares fell more than 6% on Monday after reports over the weekend that the cloud software company is in advanced talks to buy data-management firm Informatica.

Shares of Informatica, which has a market cap of around $10 billion, dropped 9% following the reports.

The price being weighed is below Informatica’s closing stock price on Friday of $38.48, according to The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the talks on Friday. A Reuters article said the deal could be announced soon. Neither publication provided specifics on the size of a potential transaction.

Regardless, it would be Salesforce’s largest deal since purchasing Slack for nearly $28 billion in 2021, the company’s largest acquisition to date.

Prior to Slack, Salesforce bought data visualization company Tableau for $15.3 billion in 2019, and MuleSoft for $6.5 billion in 2018.

Salesforce declined to comment on the reports. Informatica didn’t respond to CNBC’s request for comment.
