Being private has it's advantage, one of which you can make statements like this without all the strings that limit public companies. But still, one has to wonder a lot. For example, how much in the way of stock are founders and employees getting and how does that impact the actual balance sheet.
Also, with the current FCC regulations looming how will that impact Skype in the USA, or will the VC's who are USA based all of a sudden find them in the middle of something that they never dreamed of, that being the route of the money and possible FCC sanctions. I mean, everyone always says follow the money.
I'm rooting for Skype but the financial world is a dangerous place and people remember what you say, and forget what is unimportant. This claim is a big, bold statement, and one everyone will be watching to see if it comes true.
