http://blogs.skype.com/en/2011/05/microsoft_will_acquire_skype.html?cm_mmc=PXFB|0700_B6-_-acquisition-20110510I’m excited to announce that Skype and Microsoft have entered into a definitive agreement whereby Microsoft will acquire Skype for $8.5 billion US. Once the acquisition closes, Skype will become a new business division of Microsoft. It is an exciting day for all of us at Skype – we’ve taken a significant step towards realising our vision of making the world a better, more connected place.
