Expedia Inc (NASDAQ:EXPE) set Trivago NV – ADR (NASDAQ:TRVG) free in late-2016 (at least as far as investing in it goes, the company is still majority-owned by Expedia Inc (NASDAQ:EXPE)), as the hotel searching platform was unleashed on investors through a $287 million IPO in the middle of December. Expedia Inc (NASDAQ:EXPE), which paid about $531 million for a 62% stake in Trivago back in 2012, maintained its ownership of the company (which will be held in class B shares), while the rest of the company’s ownership was put on the block. While it had been planned for the IPO to have a share price of $13 to $15, it hit the market at just $11 per share, and has risen close to $13 since then.
