eBay has announced that they have sold Skype in a 2.75 billion dollar (65% stake) deal this morning, detailing that the buyer is an investment group led by Silver Lake and includes Index Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz and the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) Investment Board. According to the Skype blog, eBay will retain about 35% of Skype in the deal, which is to be completed in late 2009.
