Microsoft Plans To Buy Out Skype For $8.5 Billion

It has been just a few since the news of Facebook buying out or getting into a partnership deal with Skype was there in the internet world. Now the Wall Street Journal comes up with the claim that Microsoft has plans of buying Skype for $8.5 billion. In the last economic year Skype made total revenue of $860 million. It also incurred a small loss of $7 million. It is not for the first time that Skype is being purchased. After it was started in 2003 it was bought by eBay in 2005 for $3.1 billion. If Microsoft makes this deal then it would be the biggest deal ever by Microsoft. It will even surpass the $6 billion deal with an advertising firm in 2007. In the past Microsoft has kept away from huge deals and has only been involved in small and easy to manage deals. But this deal is a signal showing that Microsoft has resolved all such issues related to huge deals.

The experts are obviously not able to understand the reason of the deal. Microsoft’s Window Live Messenger has all the functions like Instant messaging, voice and video formats of chats. The active users of window Live Messenger in a month are about 330 million and that of Skype are 124 million. Skype has a few things which will prove valuable like its telephony infrastructure, which Microsoft can use in its applications like Lync, Exchange and Live messenger. Skype does have some extra features to offer but the big question is; are the features worth $7 million?

 

Facebook To Buy Out Skype For $4 Billion

Is the Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg planning to take over Skype? This is the latest topic for gossips in the world of internet. If the rumor turns out to be true then the deal will be signed for $4 billion. Although it is not confirmed news that such a deal is actually taking place but it is sure that some action is happening. Even if it is not a complete buyout bid then it may be about a joint venture of Facebook and Skype.

Facebook to buy SkypeFacebook and Skype have been related for quite some time now. Facebook was on the Skype’s scheme of things and they showed it when they launched their new version 5.0. This version had a tab specially dedicated to Facebook via which users can chat or call their Facebook friends using Skype. So the relations between Facebook and Skype cannot be ignored completely and we can expect something to happen in the future.

In the past Skype had been mulling over IPO but this deal would have brought only $1 billion to the Skype accounts. This means that if the scuttlebutt is true then it could mean a great deal to Skype.
