eBay announced that it would be splitting from PayPal which it acquired in 2002.  The move enables PayPal the flexibility to meet the demands of a rapidly growing payments industry. There is speculation and anticipation around how the business strategies of both these firms will evolve once the split officially takes place in 2015. Professor Kyle Mayer from the USC Marshall School of Business explains the business reasoning behind the move and what the future might entail for both companies.
