The investors will buy 65% of Skype by paying $1.9 billions in cash and eBay continuous to hold 35% of stake.

There are less chances for any impact on the services or pricing of Skype due to this sale agreement. Lets hope this deal is beneficial to the future of Skype as well as its users. You can read more about this deal at Skype website.
