EBay Inc. is exploring a potential sale of its online marketplace in South Korea, the latest step in a reorganization that has already hived off several units from the main U.S. e-commerce business.

The San Jose, California-based company said it has “initiated a process to explore, review, and evaluate a range of strategic alternatives for its Korea business. The company is considering options that would maximize value for its shareholders and create future growth opportunities for the business.”
