Private equity firm set to buy eBay Enterprise unit for $1bn

No primary category set

eBay Inc. is keen to sell off the eBay Enterprise unit of the business before the split with PayPal on 17th July. And it looks like they have a buyer.

It’s reported that private equity firm Thomas H. Lee Partners LP is in talks to acquire eBay Enterprise for $1bn.

eBay Enterprise helps sellers with logistics and commercial advice including fulfilment.

As Reuters note even a $1bn sale marks a loss on why eBay Inc. paid: “GSI Commerce was acquired by eBay for $2.4 billion in 2011. It has lost customers and seen sluggish growth in the past few years as its clients move their online operations in-house.

Toys “R” Us Inc, a client of GSI Commerce since 2006, announced on Thursday it was launching its own online platform, a move that could take away more business from the unit.”
