Definitive Agreement with Skype
On May 10, 2011, we announced that we had entered into a definitive agreement with Skype Global S.à.r.l. ("Skype") under which we would acquire Skype, a leading internet communications company, for $8.5 billion in cash. The acquisition will extend Skype's brand and reach of its network platform, while enhancing our existing portfolio of real-time communications products and services. The acquisition is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. We obtained regulatory approval in the U.S. and expect to obtain all remaining required regulatory approvals during calendar year 2011.
