eBay to Sell Skype

eBay is likely to announce that they will be selling Skype on Tuesday, 1 September 2009, reports The New York Times [registration required]. eBay is looking to get $2 billion for Skype and the investment group that is going to purchase it is rumored to include Index Ventures, Silver Lake Partners and Andreessen Horowitz, which includes the co-founder of Netscape, Marc Andreessen, who is on the board of directors at eBay.

Although eBay was considering an IPO for Skype next year, it is also shopping the company around to investment firms.

Update: The deal is now official.
