Report: eBay for Sale? — Chain Store Age

Media reports indicate that eBay may be acquired by Intercontinental Exchange:

“ICE has reportedly offered to purchase eBay before it made its most recent inquiry. There is no formal offer on the table and the companies are not currently engaged in official discussions of the matter. ICE may only have interest in purchasing eBay’s core e-commerce business and not its less profitable classified ad business. It is unclear how or if this would affect a possible purchase price or negotiations.”
