Cautionary note regarding forward-looking statements
This prospectus and the documents incorporated by reference herein contain forward-looking statements that relate to our current expectations and views of future events. These statements relate to events that involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, including those listed under “Risk factors” in our then-current Annual Report on Form 20-F, which may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.
In some cases, these forward-looking statements can be identified by words or phrases such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “aim,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “potential,” “continue,” “is/are likely to” or other similar expressions. These forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions by our management that, although we believe to be reasonable, are inherently uncertain and subject to a number of risks and uncertainties. These statements constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Exchange Act. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of their dates. Forward-looking statements contained in this prospectus include, but are not limited to, statements about:
our future financial performance, including our revenue, cost of revenue, operating expenses and our ability to achieve and maintain profitability;
our ability to generate positive cash flow and the sufficiency of our operating cash flow to meet our liquidity needs;
our expectations regarding the development of our industry and the competitive environment in which we operate;
our development of new products and services;
our ability to increase the number of visits to our hotel search platform and qualified referrals to our advertisers;
changes in the bidding dynamics on our marketplace, including advertiser testing of bidding strategies and responses to changes made to our marketplace;
the emergence of alternative business models and new competitors;
our ability to increase advertiser diversity on our marketplace;
the positive effects of our strategic initiatives on our profitability, including those aimed at maximizing the lifetime value of our users;
our ability to maintain and increase our brand awareness;
the potential development and impact on us of legal and regulatory proceedings to which we are or may become subject;
our ability to attract and maintain relationships with advertisers and increase the number of hotels on our marketplace; and
the growth in the usage of mobile devices and our ability to successfully monetize this usage.
We operate in an evolving environment. New risks emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for our management to predict all risks, nor can we assess the effect of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Our actual results or performance could differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, any forward-looking statements relating to those matters. Accordingly, no assurances can be given that any of the events anticipated by the forward-looking statements will transpire or occur, or if any of them do so, what impact they will have on our results of operations, cash flows or financial condition.
The forward-looking statements made or incorporated by reference in this prospectus relate only to events or information as of the date on which the statements are made in this prospectus. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, after the date on which the statements are made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. You should read this prospectus, the documents incorporated by reference herein and the documents that we
