Why it's interesting

The travel company's revenue missed estimates due to lower advertisements on its websites and a fall in revenue from subscriptions, leading to its share price dropping 4.3 per cent in after-hours trading to $50.26.

What TripAdvisor said

Chief executive officer Steve Kaufer said: "2016 was an important transition year and one of great progress towards creating the best user experience in travel.

"We rolled out hotel instant booking globally and strengthened our position in attractions, restaurants and vacation rentals.

"With our price comparison and booking capabilities in place, we are focused on raising consumer awareness of TripAdvisor as a great place to price shop and book."
