Last time eBay announced Skype-related revenues, it worked out to about $318,000 a day. According to eBay’s first quarter 2006 earnings report, Skype generated revenues were around $35.2 million, or up 42% increase from the $24.8 million reported in fourth quarter of 2005.
On a per-day basis, the revenues turned out to be $391,111 and change. In order to make their own internal $200 million in Skype 2006 revenues target, the revenues would have to hit about $599272 a day. That’s about 53% growth. No wonder, I just can’t seem to get the hefty $2.6 billion tag out of my mind. Just to be clear, these are revenues and not profits.
