Skype Being Sold To A Group Of Investors Today?

Looks like Ebay is planing to sell skype to a group of private investors. The group of undisclosed group may include,   Marc Andreessen (Netscape Founder), Index Ventures, and Silver Lake Partners. We heard about these type skype for sale deals many a times.
The price is said to be below the $3.1 billion that ebay spent on the deal. But Ebay later on wrote down $900 million from the Skype's price mark.
Skype’s founders, Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis, who were also interested in purchasing Skype, are fighting with Ebay over core networking of Skype call technology.
