ebay's sale of skype to original founders is big rip off--called low balling. in real extate terms



April 11, 2009 – Comments (1)

If ebay sells skype to skype founders you will have a big rip off of ebay.  First skype founders get more money  than skype was worth when they sold it to ebay and now they want to buy it back at a billion dollars less than what they sold it for.  What a great deal for the skype founders and what a rip of ebay. Ebay would be crazy to make such a deal. Ebay would be giving these guys a billion bucks for nothing.  I'll take that deal and so will every one else who could get such a deal.. When ebay made the deal they had less than 100 million subscrbers of skype now they have 400 million subscribers.  And ebay says its a great stand alone business.  Why would they be willing to sell  such a business at such a low price.  If this were a real estae deal they would be calling this low balling the seller.  That's  stupid..  Ebay should keep it.

Ebay is a poorly run company that never should have bought Skype to begin with, but I'm sure that an announcement that it's available for sale will turn up more suiters.
