13:32 EDTEXPESabre in talks for non-U.S. acquisition in travel network business
In a regulatory filing, Sabre (SABR) reports that the Hawaii Supreme Court ruled this month that Expedia's (EXPE) Travelocity is not subject to Hawaii’s transient accommodation tax but is subject to its general excise tax. The court further ruled that an income splitting provision that benefits Travelocity applies to the general excise tax. Sabre initially paid $34M in 2013 in order to appeal the matter and expects to receive a majority of this amount back as a result of this ruling. The company also reports that as of the date hereof, Sabre is involved in active negotiations for a potential non-U.S. acquisition within the travel network business segment for which it is possible that it will enter into an agreement in Q2. If consummated, it anticipates that the acquisition would close in Q2/Q3 and require approximately $500M in funds. With respect to its consolidated income statement for the year ended December 31, on a pro forma basis, it expects the acquisition would have resulted in a revenue increase of approximately $250M and would have resulted in a modest increase in adjusted EBITDA. In 2015, it expects the transaction would be approximately neutral to adjusted EPS, and would have a positive impact on adjusted EPS thereafter.
