Skype Files For $100 Million IPO

Skype, the Internet phone service, has filed with the SEC for an IPO, and will be listed on the NASDAQ.

Skype is reporting EBITDA of $115.8 million on $406.2 million in net revenue for the first six months of this year.

The document reports a loss of $368.6 million on revenue of $718.9 million for 2009, during which Skype spun off from eBay. Most of that loss was connected to Skype’s huge legal settlement with its founders — many more details about that here.

Skype users have racked up 95 billion minutes of voice and video call time so far this year.

Skype is still rapidly growing its user base: Its 560 million registered users figure is up 41% year-over-year. And it has 8.1 million paying users, up 23% year-over-year, who spend an average $96 per year. “Classic freemium,” as AllThingsD’s Peter Kafka tweets. (More of Peter’s coverage here.)
