Gordon Wilson, President and CEO of Travelport, commented:
“In 2016, Travelport delivered its highest level of net revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth over the last five years, as we continued to execute against our strategic objectives.  We achieved consistently strong growth in International regions and realized positive momentum in the United States, where we grew our reported segments by 3% during the fourth quarter.  Our Travel Commerce Platform continues to expand, with Beyond Air growing by 18%, driven by our leading hospitality content and mobile solutions, as well as the ongoing strength of our commercial payments business, eNett, which grew net revenue by 64% in 2016.
Looking ahead, we are delighted to have signed several new and significant agency deals that we expect will drive revenue growth as those customers implement and transact with us.  Moreover, we see several longer-term growth opportunities for our business, which has resulted in us increasing our investment levels commencing from the fourth quarter of 2016 and continuing throughout 2017, particularly in the areas of data and analytics, mobile solutions, payments and technology services.  2017 will see raised capital investments plus a further approximately $20 million of incremental strategic expenditure which, together, will enable further innovation for our customers and support sustainable and profitable long term growth.”
