Total revenues for the quarter were down 26 percent, from $763.9 million to $563.5 million, in the previous year. Profit, on the other hand, surged thanks to cost-cutting and the gains on the sales of ICQ and its Kayak investment.
Net income increased to $171.6 million, or $1.60 per share, from $74.0 million or $0.70 per share last year.
