Revenue by segment

Expedia’s (EXPE) 2Q16 revenues grew by 32% YoY (year-over-year) to $2.2 billion. The company’s revenues are divided into four segments: Core OTA (online travel agency), trivago, Egencia, and HomeAway (AWAY).

Core OTA revenues increased by 21% YoY to $1.8 billion. Revenues for trivago increased by 41% to $201 million. As the trivago business is to be listed soon, for the next few quarters, no additional commentary on it will be provided.

Egencia revenues increased by 23% to $125 million. Part of the Egencia growth came from the Orbitz business being migrated to the Egencia platform. Also, while volume growth remained strong, pricing was weak. For HomeAway, acquired by EXPE in 4Q15, revenues increased by 36% to $172 million.
