TripAdvisor Spent $34.8 Million on 6 Acquisitions in 2013 – Skift

The acquisitions TripAdvisor makes generally seem to be acqui-hires rather than great businesses or threats to their own business. All have been solid teams and products with a vision that needed more support, though some of the products were shut down and the teams re-focused on internal products. It would be hard to argue that this strategy has not been successful for them so far.
