On April 29, eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) disclosed that it is obtaining a $3 billion tax charge to move $9 billion of its foreign proceeds into the United States. John Donahoe, eBay’s Chief Executive Officer, explains that the move “simply gives [them] greater financial flexibility.” Although eBay reported first-quarter profits above predictions, the tax charge and feeble perspective for the current quarter sent the company’s shares tumbling down.

Robert Swan, eBay’s Chief Financial Officer, noted that “historically, [the company] has planned to use overseas profits for overseas purposes.
