- The announcement is being held before US markets open, but while Asian markets are closed, so it is likely that eBay will announce they have finalized their deal to acquire a minority interest in Korea's GMarket, but that doesn't seem like big enough news for a special call.
- We've been hearing rumors of layoffs, so if those layoffs are going to happen, it just makes sense they would be announced tomorrow.
- I would assume that with layoffs, eBay would also announce a re-organization; which could be quite extensive.
- Several weeks ago (Sept. 9th) Bob Swan reaffirmed guidance for the the second half of the year, but that was before they launched Finding 2.0 and FP-30. Perhaps the business has deteriorated so much since then that they need to re-state their guidance for Q4 and deal with Q3 earnings which were scheduled to be announced on the 15th -- inquiring minds want to know.
