Design software maker Autodesk announced Thursday that its chief financial officer is leaving the company for a software start-up. Steve Cakebread will leave San Rafael, Calif.-based Autodesk at the end of the month for a similar job at Salesforce.com, a San Francisco company specializing in software for sales-force automation. Cakebread had been with Autodesk for five years. Autodesk said in a statement that Martha McDonald, vice president of corporate finance, would assume Cakebread's duties until a replacement is hired. The company also reported financial results down significantly from a year ago. Net income for the first quarter, which ended April 30, was $18 million, or 15 cents a share, compared with $28 million and 25 cents a share in the same period a year ago. Revenue for the quarter totaled $229.3 million, down from $245.7 million a year ago. CEO Carol Bartz blamed the slowdown on overall economic pressures and sub-par results from the company's Japanese division and its Discrete animation software unit. --David Becker, Special to ZDNet News
Marking its second move into Asia in less than a month, eBay said Sunday it is buying a 33 percent stake in Chinese auction site EachNet for $30 million. In addition to the financial investment, eBay CEO Meg Whitman and Matt Bannick, senior vice president of eBay's international operations, will join EachNet's board of directors. eBay representatives did not return calls seeking additional comment. Last month, eBay announced it would buy Taiwan-based auction site NeoCom Technology for $9.5 million. At the same time, however, the San Jose, Calif.-based auction giant said that it would close its struggling Japanese auction site. Last year, eBay expanded into France, Brazil and the Netherlands by buying French auction company iBazar. The company also owns a stake in Korea's Internet Auction Company through an investment made last year. Outside of Japan, eBay has generally been successful with its overseas ventures. In the fourth quarter, for instance, eBay's international businesses posted an operating profit for the first time and accounted for 18 percent of the company's overall revenue. Despite its overall success, eBay couldn't keep pace in Japan, where its site trailed far behind Yahoo's market-leading site. Bo Shao and Haiyin Tan, both Chinese entrepreneurs educated in the United States, founded EachNet in August 1999. The company has 3.5 registered users. The investment will not have a material effect on eBay revenue, expenses or net income, eBay said. --Troy Wolverton, Special to ZDNet News
