Skype internet calling service files for IPO
NEW YORK (AP) - August 9, 2010 -- Skype SA, the Internet calling service that was controlled until last year by eBay Inc., is planning a U.S. initial public offering.
Luxembourg-based Skype tentatively puts the value of the offering at $100 million in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, but that's a rough estimate only used as a basis for the filing fee.
Skype did not say when its shares would go on sale, or at what price. It expects to list on the Nasdaq Stock Market under an unspecified symbol.
