Thanks, Mark.

Welcome, everyone, to today's conference call, and thank you for joining us on
such short notice.

As we announced half an hour ago, eBay has signed an agreement to acquire
PayPal, the most popular online payment service. We are very excited about the
agreement because it brings together two companies in a way that will benefit
our users and expand the platforms. eBay will acquire 100% of PayPal's
outstanding shares in a stock-for-stock transaction valued at approximately $1.5

There are four primary reasons why the acquisition is the right move for both

First, we should be able to provide a significantly improved customer experience
for both buyers and sellers; second, it combines the core competencies of both
companies in a natural and complementary way; third, it should strengthen both
businesses; and finally, it will create value for shareholders.


First and foremost, the acquisition is about improving the eBay user experience.
In short, the combination will ensure that the customer experience will become
easier, safer and faster. Let me highlight a few examples:

-- Closely integrating PayPal into eBay's platform will make it easier for
sellers by making listing with Paypal much more intuitive. Additionally, paying
for an item will become much simpler for buyers.

-- By sharing information and the unique expertise each company has developed in
fighting fraud will allow us to increase trust and safety on the site for

-- And finally, we know when our customers use Paypal, sellers get paid faster
and buyers get their goods faster - leading to increased transaction

Improving the user experience is an ongoing goal at eBay. Our users have been
asking for deeper integration of PayPal for some time, and it was one of the
themes we heard again two weeks ago at eBay Live. We believe the majority of our
community will be very happy with today's announcement.

Second, eBay and PayPal have complementary core competencies - we both take
unique advantage of the Internet to enable online trade. We also share
overlapping user communities. Approximately 60% of PayPal's gross payment volume
comes from eBay transactions. The acquisition will turn this interdependence
into a strength for both companies. Additionally, both


companies have built defining brands. Also, eBay brings some unique skills in
technology, specifically, in scaling large transactional trading platforms,
while Paypal will contribute a unique fraud management toolset.

Third, the acquisition also strengthens both businesses. For eBay, this
transaction should increase the penetration of electronic payments on our
platform, thereby increasing the velocity of trade. Also, this transaction gives
eBay the ability to participate in a larger share of online commerce. Part of
PayPal's business takes place outside of eBay. Interestingly, many of these
transactions relate to the same types of products that sell on eBay every day
from the same target sellers. Not only will we benefit from this additional
source of revenue, but we will also have an entree to market eBay as a
full-service e-commerce platform to these merchants. In the end, we believe eBay
will become an increasingly important service provider to sellers of all types
and sizes.

For Paypal, this transaction should result in more new users and increased
penetration of eBay listings and GMS. It should also accelerate their
international expansion plans.

Both companies should see benefits from cost structure efficiencies and improved
fraud management.

Finally, the acquisition makes sense for our shareholders. The combined networks
will accelerate our vision of an efficient global trading platform. As Rajiv
will discuss in a moment, this is an accretive transaction that we


believe will provide superior return on investment for our shareholders and will
be additive to eBay's 2005 revenue goal of $3 billion.

In short, with our expertise in building a vibrant and abundant marketplace and
Paypal's expertise in online payments, we can accelerate our vision of creating
the world's most efficient online marketplace.

I'd like to take a moment to welcome everyone at PayPal to the eBay family.
Together, PayPal and eBay will make a great team.

Now I'll turn it over to Peter.



Thanks, Meg.

PayPal and eBay have a lot in common. Just as eBay makes online trade possible
through its platform, PayPal makes e-commerce run more smoothly with its payment
network. We enable any business or consumer with email to send and receive
online payments securely, conveniently and cost-effectively. Our network builds
on the existing financial infrastructure of bank accounts and credit cards to
create a global payment system.

PayPal is a very cost-effective way for individuals or small businesses to
receive payment electronically, by whatever payment method their customers
choose -- credit card, checking account, or stored value account. Particularly
for lower-volume sellers or small businesses, the fees for accepting credit card
payments can be prohibitively expensive. In contrast, PayPal's average fee per
payment of just over 3%, combined with no set-up or maintenance fees, makes
PayPal very attractive to these sellers.

The business model works. At the end of Q1, PayPal had more than 15.4 million
accounts, including more than 3.2 million business accounts, which pay
transaction fees to receive payments. In the first quarter of this year we
reported revenues of $48.8 million, resulting from strong growth in payment


That payment volume, by the way, comes from two sources: eBay and non-auction
payments. Our eBay market, which represented 61% of total payment volume in the
first quarter, consists of payments made at online trading sites, primarily
eBay. The non-auction payment volume, which was 39% of payment volume in Q1,
comes primarily from fixed-price e-commerce and offline services. We have seen
tremendous growth in both businesses - 100% growth in auction payments
year-on-year as of the first quarter of 2002 and 188% growth in non-auction
payments during the same period.

As a result, PayPal became GAAP profitable in the first quarter of this year,
earning $1.2 million in net income or $0.02 per diluted share on a GAAP basis.
PayPal's pro forma after-tax net income for that quarter, which excludes
non-cash expenses related to stock-based compensation and the amortization of
intangibles, amounted to $4.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share.

There is no question that this transaction will provide PayPal with new
opportunities for growth. Like eBay, PayPal has built a strong business by
focusing relentlessly on the user experience and making our service as simple to
use as possible. As part of eBay, we will be able to make using PayPal even
simpler for our largest audience: eBay users. And remember, more than 25 million
of them do not yet use PayPal.

Let me give you an idea of how important the user experience is to our business.
Today, if you want to use PayPal to purchase an item on eBay it can be a bit
challenging because it is not integrated into eBay's platform.


This means that there are a number of extra steps in searching, tracking and
paying for buyers that take time and effort.

With integration, this process would become extremely streamlined. Users would
be able to easily find listings that take PayPal, and pay by clicking a single
button. Immediate payment means faster feedback and shipping, and the entire
transaction becomes more efficient, more convenient and more compelling. And by
combining expertise in fighting fraud, PayPal and eBay will also make trading

Teaming up with eBay also means we automatically have access to eBay's
international community of users, which represents additional opportunity for
PayPal in the long-term. Although online payment penetration is relatively low
in most countries, PayPal is already seeing good traction outside of the US and
is now available in 38 countries around the world.

We believe integration with eBay will also accelerate growth off the eBay
platform. Increasing PayPal penetration of eBay's user base means that
potentially 46 million Internet shoppers will have PayPal accounts that allow
them to buy goods and services anywhere on the Internet. They can use earnings
from eBay to buy on thousands of websites that accept PayPal, or even offline
using a PayPal debit card. In turn, all these shoppers will foster even faster
merchant adoption of PayPal payments. This ever-expanding financial network is
what PayPal is all about.

In addition, the acquisition brings together two strong and complementary
brands. Like eBay, PayPal has an extraordinary degree of customer loyalty


among its users. This relationship has been built by providing them with a
friendly, trustworthy and convenient payment service. We know that eBay's users
feel the same degree of emotion about eBay, as we experienced two weeks ago at
eBay Live.

It is very clear to us that working together, PayPal and eBay can each help the
other expand.

Now, I'd like to turn it over to Rajiv.



Thanks, Peter.

As Meg and Peter have both outlined, this is an outstanding deal for both
companies. The combination furthers the strategic vision of each company
building off a shared community of users with a common vision to enable online
commerce. Just as important, the acquisition of PayPal for approximately 8.1% of
eBay, also makes very sound financial sense and has the opportunity to create
significant long-term shareholder value. As Meg has already mentioned, we
believe that this acquisition will be immediately accretive to eBay's pro-forma
earnings per share and offers significant synergies that will benefit eBay for
the long-term.

In addition to a shared vision and a shared customer base, the companies also
have very complementary business models:

   o    Both eBay and PayPal are primarily transaction-based models built on the
        strengths of the eBay marketplace.

   o    Both enjoy efficient customer acquisition leveraging rapidly-growing
        viral business models.

   o    Neither business requires inventory, warehouses or sales forces.

   o    And both businesses have intrinsically low capital requirements.

What this results in are two highly leveraged business models that generate
strong operating cash flows.


It is important to note that both companies are approaching this transaction
from a position of strength:

This morning, eBay announced strong Q2 financial results with net revenues of
over $266 million and net income on a GAAP basis of $54.3 million. The company
also announced that pro forma earnings per share was 19 cents. These are the
figures used by First Call. This compares to our previously issued guidance of
revenues in the range of $260 to $265 million and pro-forma EPS of $0.17. This
stronger than expected Q2 performance was once again highlighted by an
accelerating US transaction business, which grew 48% year-over-year, and 148%
year-over-year growth from international operations. With 83% gross margins and
a pro-forma operating margin just over 30%, the business fundamentals across all
vertical categories and geographies continues to be as strong as ever.

On June 12, PayPal announced that its second quarter 2002 revenues could range
from $53 to $54 million and pro forma earnings per share could range from $0.08
to $0.09. Additionally, PayPal estimated that its total payment volume could
range from $1.61 billion to $1.63 billion.

We will provide further details on our Q2 performance at our regularly scheduled
conference call on Thursday, July 18.

Turning to the specifics of the announced transaction:

   o    eBay will acquire 100% of the outstanding shares of PayPal in an
        all-stock purchase business combination.


   o    A fixed exchange ratio of 0.39 eBay shares per PayPal share will be
        used, which at current prices translates to a transaction value of
        approximately $1.5 billion. In addition, we expect to incur roughly $18
        million in acquisition-related costs.

   o    Note that the actual transaction value could vary significantly from
        these estimates, depending on the actual price of eBay's stock at

   o    We currently expect to close the transaction around the end of calendar
        year 2002.

   o    Once again, based on our current expectations, we believe that the
        acquisition of PayPal will be immediately accretive to eBay's pro-forma
        EPS. On a GAAP basis the company will initially incur incremental
        charges for stock-based compensation and amortization of intangible
        assets of approximately $4 million and $9 million per quarter,
        respectively. Accordingly, we expect the transaction to be dilutive on a
        GAAP reported basis.

Through this acquisition, eBay will be able to expand the range of services
around e-commerce. Specifically, it means we will be able to increase the
availability of the critical payment component in a way that is integrated and
fundamentally easier, faster and safer for both buyers and sellers. In addition,
electronic payments significantly shorten the cycle of payment and delivery,
which in turn fundamentally strengthens overall transaction velocity.

In Germany for example, electronic payments are nearly universal, and it takes
no more than five days from the close of an auction for buyers to remit


payment and receive their goods. For the $7 billion of GMS that we estimate will
settle with checks and money orders this year in the U.S., the payment and
delivery cycle can easily take much longer.


Let's now take a look at what this transaction will mean for eBay's business

In terms of net revenues, PayPal earns transaction fees based on a percent of
payment volume. On a consolidated basis, eBay will report these revenues as part
of its total transaction revenues. And since the amount of payments revenue in
the overall mix has a significant impact on eBay's income statement, we are
committed to providing sufficient information and metrics to assist you in
following and understanding the health and performance of this business.

Another important consideration is that PayPal revenues will not be purely
additive to eBay's revenues. As Meg mentioned, we will discontinue eBay's
existing payment service over time. In addition, PayPal's gaming business will
be phased out after the deal closes, in view of the uncertain legal and
regulatory environment surrounding online gaming. We estimate that gaming
revenues could account for about 10% to 15% of total PayPal revenues in 2003 and
are a particularly profitable revenue stream. Further, as we conform PayPal
revenues and expenses to eBay's presentation, a certain portion of PayPal's
revenues will be reclassified from transaction revenues to advertising and
end-to-end service revenues.


That said, we believe that this acquisition has the opportunity to create
significant synergies both on the revenue and profit lines. With much deeper
integration, we believe that there will be an increase in the percentage of
transactions that are settled using electronic payments, which in turn will lead
to a higher velocity of transactions and accelerate the growth of gross
merchandise sales. On the operating expense side, we believe that there are
important leverage opportunities from a shared infrastructure. Further, as
Billpoint users move to the PayPal service and increase adoption of direct debit
and stored value transactions, eBay has the opportunity to significantly reduce
the cost of revenues for payment transactions. Finally, each company will be
able to learn from the other and further hone our trust and safety capabilities
making the service safer and even more cost efficient than before.

We believe that these synergies, which of course, will develop over time as the
two businesses are integrated have the ability to offset any reduction in
revenues and profits from the phase-out of the gaming business. We believe that
this strategic move will result in an even healthier revenue mix with strong
growth and profitability characteristics.

As a result, we are confident that the acquisition will be additive to our 2005
revenue goal of $3 billion.

On the gross margin line, eBay and PayPal's models vary significantly. As you
know, eBay's cost of revenues, which are comprised largely of site operations
and customer support, are about 15-20% of net revenues, leading


to a gross margin in the 80-85% range. If PayPal were to classify expenses
consistent with eBay's presentation, PayPal's cost of net revenues would include
transaction processing costs and customer support. On this basis, PayPal's gross
margin in Q1 was approximately 45% by our estimates. On a combined basis, eBay's
gross margin will reflect the mix of revenues between eBay's core transaction
revenues, payment transaction revenues, and other revenues.

On the operating margin line, eBay once again reported pro forma operating
margins of 30% in Q2. Due largely to the differences between the two companies'
cost of revenues, PayPal's expected long term operating margins are estimated to
be approximately 20 to 25%. On a combined basis, the company's long term
operating margins will therefore be a blend of the two.

In terms of the balance sheet, both companies have businesses that are
fundamentally of low capital intensity, and as such the vast majority of the
company's tangible assets will continue to be in cash and investments, with a
very small amount of long-term debt. This low capital intensity, along with the
inherent leverage in both business models and positive returns from both
companies' investments over the past several quarters, should lead to strong
free cash flow generation for the combined company. In addition, we will be
adding an intangible asset component of approximately $1.4 billion to the
balance sheet as a result of this transaction.

We will provide more detailed guidance on our future expectations of revenue and
profit closer to the completion of the acquisition.



In summary, we are very excited to announce this important strategic move that
creates the potential to significantly accelerate the growth of both companies
and create significant returns for shareholders. We look forward to updating you
on our progress in the coming months.

Thank you again for joining us on such short notice. We would be happy to take
your questions.
