Also, the company will be able to strengthen its presence in the incredibly profitable vacation rental market and gain competitive advantage against apartment-sharing start-up, Airbnb. Airbnb, in general, provides short-term rentals while HomeAway caters to travelers looking for one-week or longer stays. Therefore, the acquisition will give Expedia the opportunity to expand its options for consumers beyond hotels, boosting its efforts to build a place in the fast emerging alternative accommodations space, a market that Expedia values at around $100 billion. I favored this acquisition because: 1) a deal offers a "compelling" opportunity to increase take rates, 2) the price tag (14x 2017 EBITDA) does not reflect the potential "wild success" of the new fee model, 3) Expedia gains "strategic insulation" from the Airbnb risk. HomeAway is the leading online website for vacation rentals.
