Internet marketplace company eBay Inc. has been a big buyer of smaller companies, completing dozens of acquisitions in the last decade ranging from its $945 million acquisition of online payments company Bill Me Later Inc. in 2008, to its $800 million acquisition of another payments company, Braintree Payments Solutions LLC, last year. Bob Swan, the company’s long-time CFO, tells CFO Journal how it has focused on honing its integration strategy, as about 30% of the company’s growth now stems from those purchases.
