Original Founders Want to Buy Skype Back From eBay

Labels: , ,

"As the New York Times reported, Skype's founders, Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis, are in talks with several private equity firms and are amassing their own financial resources to make a bid for the internet phone business." Back in 2005, eBay bought Skype for $2.6 to $3.1 billion, but apparently, they now want to buy it back. I don't know what will come out of this, but I do know that eBay has yet to do anything with Skype so they might as well sell it. They should have sold it to Google, wait, whatever happened to those rumours?

Skype has been increasing in popularity the last couple of months, so it's no surprise that these two want to buy it back. Skype was even worthy enough to become a free app on the Apple's App Store and was downloaded 1 million times in the first 2 days.
