Room night growth also came in short of expectations. Revenue jumped 10% to $2.89 billion, in line with analysts’ projections for $2.88 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The shares fell 13% in extended trading.

Key takeaways

  • The company expects gross bookings growth in the first quarter to be in the low- to mid-single digits and revenue growth to be in the mid-single digits;
  • The moderation in travel demand was not surprising after a strong recovery, which was echoed by hotel chain Hilton on its earnings call this week.
