SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz Law Firm Announces the Filing of a Class Action 
Against Expedia, Inc. and Certain Officers - EXPE 
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 10/08/13 --  Pomerantz Grossman
Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP has filed a class action lawsuit
against Expedia, Inc. ("Expedia" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: EXPE) and
certain of its officers. The class action, filed in United States
District Court, Western District of Washington, and docketed under
13-cv-01735, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or
entities who purchased or otherwise acquired securities of Expedia
between July 27, 2012 and July 25, 2013 both dates inclusive (the
"Class Period"). This class action seeks to recover damages against
the Company and certain of its officers and directors as a result of
alleged violations of the federal securities laws pursuant to
Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and
Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. 
If you are a shareholder who purchased Expedia securities during the
Class Period, you have until October 28, 2013 to ask the Court to
appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class. A copy of the Complaint

Expedia is an Internet-based travel website company headquartered in
Bellevue, Washington, with localized sites for 29 countries. Its
websites book airline tickets, hotel reservations, car rentals,
cruises, vacation packages and various attractions and services via
the World Wide Web and telephone travel agents. In 2011, Expedia
split into two publicly traded companies by spinning off its
TripAdvisor brand of travel sites. 
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants
made materially false and misleading statements regarding the
Company's business and operations. Specifically, Defendants made
false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (a)
that following the spin-off, TripAdvisor had been directing a
significant amount of lucrative web traffic to Expedia pursuant to an
informal str
ategic partnership between the two companies that inured
to the benefit of Expedia and to the detriment of TripAdvisor; (b)
that the lucrative web traffic directed to Expedia from TripAdvisor
following the spin-off had been a material source of Expedia's
outsized revenues following the spin-off; (c) that TripAdvisor would
stop directing web traffic to Expedia in early 2013; and (d) that
performance at the Company's Hotwire unit was failing.  
On July 25, 2013, after the close of trading, Expedia issued a press
release announcing its second quarter 2013 financial results for the
quarter ended June 30, 2013. Expedia's second-quarter 2013 profit
fell to $71.5 million from $105.2 million a year earlier. Overall,
bookings rose only 13%, well below the 19% surge the Company posted
during fiscal 2012. The Company also lowered its guidance for 2013
adjusted earnings, predicting growth in the mid to high single
digits. On this news, Expedia shares declined $17.80 per share or
nearly 27%, to close at $47.20 per share on July 26, 2013.
