Nuance Communications (NASDAQ: NUAN) proxy suggests Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) was interested before the company agreed to the Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), CNBC's David Faber notes.

From the Proxy:

On February 25, 2020, during a conversation regarding another company in the ordinary course of business development activities, a representative of a leading cloud technology and e-commerce company, which we refer to as Party D, conveyed to representatives of Evercore Party D’s interest in meeting with the senior leadership of Nuance to explore potential opportunities involving Nuance, ranging from a potential strategic partnership in healthcare to a potential acquisition of Nuance. The representative of Party D characterized their interest as preliminary, and indicated that Party D was seeking the meeting to learn more about Nuance’s healthcare business in light of its own nascent activities in the space. Following that conversation, a representative of Evercore communicated to Nuance senior management Party D’s interest in a meeting with Nuance senior leadership. Representatives of Nuance and Party D scheduled a meeting for April 9, 2020, but subsequently canceled that meeting due to the developing COVID-19 pandemic. Following such cancellation, Party D did not seek to reengage with Nuance and Nuance and Party D did not have further discussions.
