Microsoft Skype Unit Approaching $2 Billion in Annual Sales

Microsoft Corp.’s Skype unit, which includes Lync software for corporate instant messaging and Internet calling, is approaching $2 billion in annual sales.

The division is getting close to the size of Microsoft’s SharePoint business, which focuses on tools that help employees collaborate, according to Giovanni Mezgec, a general manager in the Skype division. SharePoint will bring in more than $2 billion in revenue for the current fiscal year, Microsoft said in November.
