Skype Use Gets Q4 Boost

It might not be enough yet to kick in the extra $1.5 billion for Niklas, but Skype’s Q4 2006 numbers were at least headed in the positive direction. skype_jpg.jpg
The eBay subsidiary racked up big gains in minutes, registered users and revenues during the company’s blowout quarter.
One big important jump was an addition of 400 million SkypeOut minutes from the previous quarter.

Here’s a quick list of gains from Q3 to Q4:

Revenues: Q3, $50 million; Q4, $66 million
Registered users: Q3, 135.9 million; Q4, 171.2 million
Skype to Skype Minutes: Q3, 6.6 billion; Q4, 7.6 billion
SkypeOut Minutes: Q3, 1.1 billion; Q4, 1.5 billion

The financials come just after another bit of good news, the Tuesday report that a Federal Court tossed out the lawsuit brought by StreamCast against Skype. SkypeJournal has a few more nuggets here from the call.
