Microsoft to buy Skype for $7 bln

submitted on May 10, 2011 by YanBz in "Stores / Merchants"
WSJ reports that Microsoft is closing a deal to buy Skype. If the deal falls through, this will be the biggest acquisition in the history of Microsoft.

A deal could be announced as early as Tuesday, people familiar with the matter said, though they cautioned that negotiations aren't yet final and a deal could still fall apart. Including Skype's long-term debt, the total value of the deal is about $8.5 billion.
