  • “EBay would consider selling the business unit (SKYPE) if it couldn't be integrated with its auction or PayPal payment system. … So is eBay looking to unload Skype? The answer is probably yes and no. Because Skype isn't core to eBay's online auction business, experts believe that eBay would be happy to let Skype go, at the right price. But Skype, which just posted a 26 percent gain in revenue for the fourth quarter compared to a year ago, happens to be one of the only bright spots in eBay's overall business, which means that eBay isn't desperate to let it go. … Based on its current financials, the highest price that eBay could hope to get for Skype is about $1.6 billion, Friedland said. And he said that would be a generous offer. eBay itself has valued the Skype assets on its balance sheet at $2 billion, so it's unlikely the company would accept a lower figure. “
