TripAdvisor chairman Greg Maffei, whose Liberty TripAdvisor Holdings controls 54 percent of the voting power at TripAdvisor, may have opened the door to speculation about either TripAdvisor buying down Liberty’s stake or a suitor coming in to make an offer during his comments at a Morgan Stanley investor conference early this month.

But if somebody put a number for TRIP on then you are dividing the spoils and it is a lot easier discussion than if you sitting around on the average day running the company.” Get the full story at Skift
