eBay intends to buy the rest of the company in coming days. In coming weeks, it will make a tender offer for all remaining outstanding shares at the same price of 125,000 Korean Won per share ($108) as offered to the instititutions. It does not expect the deal to have an impact on third quarter earnings. ®
