a. Consider the article’s statement, “The deal will take
eBay one step further away from its decelerating auction model while
strengthening the company’s fulfillment and customer service operations,
two of Amazon’s strengths.”
• Why might eBay’s auction model be “decelerating”?
• How will the acquisition of GSI “strengthen eBay’s fulfillment and customer service operations”?
b. Was the acquisition of GSI a complementary or
supplementary fit into eBay’s strategic portfolio of products?  Why?
c. According to the article, analysts estimated Amazon’s
2010 revenues to be $44.93 billion, while eBay’s was only $10.47
billion.  How effective might this acquisition be to achieve the goal of
“chipping away at rival Amazon.com Inc.’s lofty online retailing
