    Though Priceline (PCLN +3.8%) rallied today in response to its Q1 report, acquisition target Kayak (KYAK -3.4%) slumped to $40.10. Priceline announced yesterday it has received "all necessary regulatory approvals" for the Kayak acquisition, and expects the deal to close on May 21. It looks as if investors are abandoning hope of an offer above the current $40/share (1/3 in cash, 2/3 in stock).

    The FTC has signed off on Priceline's (PCLN) $1.8B acquisition of Kayak (KYAK). Though the combined clout of Priceline/Kayak in the online travel search/bookings space will be huge, the presence of competition from Expedia, Google, and others seems to have mollified regulators. Priceline has said Kayak will be run as an independent company led by its current management.

    Priceline (PCLN -0.3%) and Expedia (EXPE -0.8%) pared the losses they saw after the Kayak (KYAK +28.1%) deal was announced, while TripAdvisor (TRIP +0.6%) fully erased its decline. Nomura's Brian Nowak points out Kayak could take a hit if Expedia (its biggest advertiser) cuts back on spending in response, and that TripAdvisor's 2013 estimates could be at risk if Priceline cuts its ad spending now that it has Kayak as a channel. As far as Priceline goes, Nowak likes the deal's ability to lower Priceline's dependence on Google traffic. (previous)

    Expedia (EXPE) -4.3% AH on news Priceline (PCLN) is acquiring Kayak (KYAK). Investors are likely worried the direct integration of Priceline's travel listings and bidding platform with Kayak's search engine will hurt Expedia's market share. TripAdvisor (TRIP) -3.3% AH, likely on concerns the Priceline deal could end its travel reviews partnership with Kayak. Priceline is holding a call to discuss the merger (webcast).

    Priceline (PCLN) is acquiring Kayak Software (KYAK) for $40/share, or $1.8B. The price represents a 29% premium to Kayak's close today. 1/3 of the purchased will be financed via cash, and 2/3 via stock. Priceline expects the deal to close in Q1, and have a minimal impact on 2013 EPS. Regulators may take a close look. PCLN -1.5% AH. KYAK is halted until 4:30 p.m.  (PR)

    As expected, the solid earnings reports from Priceline and TripAdvisor, have lit a torch under sector players such as Ctrip (CTRP +1.3%), Expedia (EXPE +2.2%), Travelzoo (TZOO +2.8%), Orbitz (OWW -0.6%), and Kayak (KYAK +3.5%) in early trading. The general theme is the online travel business is stabilizing as it adjusts its model to dialed-down expectations in Europe and Asia.
