Vonage Files for $250 million IPO

Andy found it first and I am pointing to it – the Vonage filed for an IPO. Here is the SEC document.

Our revenues were $18.7 million in 2003, $79.7 million in 2004, and $174.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2005. While our revenues have grown rapidly, we have experienced increasing net losses, primarily driven by our increase in marketing expenses. From the period of inception through September 30, 2005, our cumulative net loss was $310.0 million. Our net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2005 was $189.6 million. During the same nine-month period, our marketing expenses were $176.3 million.
