Ask Jeeves just announced their fourth quarter results, and the butler aint' doing so bad. Granted, it's not quite in the same league as Google, but how about doubling their profits? Not bad!
Ask Jeeves, Inc. (ASKJ) today reported results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2004.
Revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2004 were $86.1 million. These fourth quarter results represent 170% growth over revenues of $31.8 million for the comparable year-ago quarter.
"In the fourth quarter Ask Jeeves once again showed strong growth -- financially, from a traffic standpoint, and in terms of our products," said Steve Berkowitz, Ask Jeeves' CEO. "This quarter was the culmination of a great year for the Company. We launched many innovative features and products to make searching easier and more useful. Users responded positively, leading to gains in both reach and frequency. In 2005, we plan to continue to outgrow the search market as a whole as we roll out new products, build on the differentiation of our core technologies, and expand globally."
