News broke this morning: eBay to buy Skype for 2.6 billion in cash, stock. Crazy.

And for exactly twice that dollar amount, Oracle is working to buy Siebel.

So, in essence what they're telling us is that Skype is worth 50% of what Siebel is worth? Does this make any real sense?

Are they telling us that Skype is worth 50% of what Siebel is worth? No, because for the 5.8 billion Oracle also gets Siebels liquid funds of 2.2 billion, according to 'heise online'. So the "net price" they pay would only be 3.6 billion. Even more crazy? =)
