TripAdvisor increased its revenue to $ 262 million in the first quarter of 2022, thanks to a comeback in the travel market. Both of the company’s business segments saw significant revenue growth. Restaurant and entertainment revenue surged by 230 percent year over year to $ 92 million, while hotel booking revenue jumped by 82 percent.
These indications indicate that activity is progressively improving: people are more inclined to eat out and travel beyond their city. The resurgence of international tourism and corporate travel could be another source of growth.
TripAdvisor has not yet achieved profitability, but it has dramatically reduced its losses compared to the previous year. The corporation posted a loss of $ 53 million a year ago, but just $ 13 million, or $ 0.24 per share, in the first quarter of 2022.
In terms of Wall Street’s first-quarter predictions, the results were mixed. On one hand, the corporation exceeded revenue estimates, yet losses were nearly three times more than analysts had projected.
TripAdvisor did not disclose predictions for future quarters, which may have tipped off investors. However, this is owing to the world’s precarious geopolitical scenario and inflation, both of which might impair people’s vacation plans.
