eBay Polishes Its Pitch for Investor Roadshow
By: Ina Steiner
eBay and PayPal are kicking off roadshows with investors this week in preparation of breaking up. eBay published the slide decks it will use in presentations to Wall Street, sharing its vision of the companies.
"eBay will be the world's most vibrant marketplace for discovering great value and unique selection," eBay is telling Wall Street, hoping investors and analysts will continue to invest in eBay after the breakup.
eBay will talk up mobile, engagement, and safety (low fraud rates, VeRO, and Money Back Guarantee) to investors.
Its strategic priorities are 1) a vibrant marketplace; 2) a strong, stable & secure commerce platform; and 3) engaging product & brand experiences.
How will an independent eBay work without PayPal? "Focus on our core; Play to our strengths; and Build for the long term," one slide explains. Another slide recaps the presentation. "Where we are heading" explains eBay will focus on its core buyers and sellers while showcasing its spectrum of value and unique selection. It will leverage data to drive a better user experience, invest in structured data to improve discoverability. And it will create engaging, multiscreen product experiences.
