Ecommerce giant eBay announced on Tuesday that it's selling its Skype unit to an investor group that includes entrepreneur Marc Andreessen's new venture.

The investor group, which will take a roughly 65 per cent stake in Skype, is led by Silver Lake and includes Index Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, and the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board. The remaining 35 per cent of the internet telephony service will be retained by eBay.
