TripAdvisor Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015
Feb 11 15
TripAdvisor provided earnings guidance for the year 2015. For the year, the company expects capital expenditures to be roughly 5% of revenue. The company expects full year total revenue growth in the high-20s based on continued broad growth across its product set, including a full year benefit from its attractions and restaurant acquisitions, offset by lapping the benefits from its metasearch transition, the ongoing shift of its traffic to mobile and international, as well as the negative impact of foreign currency fluctuations. The company expects 2015 EBITDA growth in the low to mid-teens. Using 2014 exchange rates, total revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth expectations would have been approximately 3 and 5 percentage points higher, respectively.
