Expedia Announces Plans to Acquire Orbitz 

Expedia announced plans to purchase Orbitz, today. According to sources, Expedia’s goal is to create a large, cohesive travel website that will allow users to find all their travel needs in one place. Aside from ensuring consumers can find what they are looking for, the purchase will also allow Expedia to better compete against Priceline, which has grown exponentially in recent years.

This is not the first acquisition for Expedia in the last 12 months. In fact, my coworker Zeca Oliveira told me that he saw where Expedia has taken to acquiring different businesses across the globe in an attempt to strengthen and expand their business on Just before 2014 came to a close, the company purchased Wotif Holdings, an Australian-based travel company for $$612 million. Last year they also purchased Travelocity for $280 million. This latest acquisition, if it is approved, will be the company’s largest to date.

The deal, which is reportedly worth $1.6 billion, must still be approved by regulators, although Expedia does not foresee a problem. It could, however, be argued that by buying Orbitz, Expedia is creating a monopoly within the travel website industry.

A similar issue plagued television service provider, Comcast when they attempted to acquire Time Warner Cable. The Comcast deal, however, was much larger in scope and was worth a whopping $37.4 billion and would effect over 50 million customers.

In comparison, the Expedia acquisition is much smaller in nature, and should not take nearly as long to approve and work through. The story continued to develop.

1. Connect with Citizens

Brazilians are very social and welcome all conversations, so will gladly give you advice from their own experiences. This connection even goes to Twitter and other social networks.

2. Red Tape. Expect it.

Cornelsen advises you to be well prepared for regulations when entering this market. Restrictive labor market, regulatory labyrinths, high taxes, and invasive bureaucracy are obstacles you face. It takes work to get around the barriers, but the payoff for you as a smart investor is huge.

3. Know foreign-currency restrictions

You must find a bank dealing in foreign exchange to hold local-currency if either you or your business are non-residential. There is no single exchange rate for foreign currency, as that is dependent on the nature of the business transaction.
