Activist Investors at eBay's Gate

From a merchant's perspective, while eBay's trajectory over the years has been a combination of equally strong internal and external factors, it has been our experience that the eBay marketplace has experienced more management induced core traction since Devin Wenig and his leadership team assumed the helm, than in all years previous.
Doubtless, board diversity under the right conditions is never anything but a very good thing. On the surface, this occasion seems to indicate just such a circumstance. However, it comes on the heels of calls for dividends, relinquishing free cash flow and liquidation of diversified asset portfolios, because eBay has been and continues to be so profitable. The language in the document references shareholder value. We look forward to similar language acknowledging the opportunity to achieve optimization in a number of verticals such as collectibles and platforms such as the powerful and under utilized auction functionality with even more category specific investment attention.
Assuming we can all walk and chew gum, I've always ascribed to the principle that vision is as multi-dimensional as it is multi-faceted. It is unnecessary to carve out diversity to focus on core. It is useful to keep in mind the many years of strategic investing for the future that have allowed Amazon and others to become their current behemoth forms.
It's about investing in the future.
In our opinion, eBay has the distinct and very rare privilege of a unique purpose driven competitive advantage that builds true long lasting value. Although eBay was arguably the first mover in socio-economics, the reasons for engagement extend well beyond identifiable human interaction. While at NobleSpirit relationships are our strength, at eBay - lives are forever changed for the better. It speaks to an unparalleled advantage that is the envy of every other marketplace out there.
I hope the new board will put their belief a perpetual long view; and, their trust in Wenig and his superb leadership team. The execution and plan which has clearly been working confirms the results can only get better.
In our next newsletter, we discuss our NobleSpirit secret sauce.
And, we continue to tease you with the imminent announcement in the next couple of weeks of an exciting new development.
