Financial Summary & Operating Metrics (€ millions)

As of December 31, 2017, it offered access to more than 1.8 million hotels and other types of accommodation in over 190 countries.

In the fourth quarter of 2017, selling and marketing expense grew to €165.8 million, of which €149.7 million, or 90%, was advertising expense. The increase was driven by higher advertising spend across all regions with €53.6 million, €51.3 million and €44.8 million spent in Americas, Developed Europe and RoW, respectively, compared to €46.4 million, €46.1 million and €31.8 million, respectively, spent in the fourth quarter of 2016. Selling and marketing expense was 91% of revenues in the fourth quarter of 2017, up from 81% in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Net loss attributable to trivago N.V. of €9.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 reflected an increase of our operating expenses relative to our revenues as well as our inability to reduce planned television advertising spend due to commitments in some markets, which resulted in lower ROAS as described above. ROAS was also negatively affected by lower commercialization, increased advertiser testing activities and an increase in advertising spend. The decrease in ROAS also affected adjusted EBITDA, which was €(8.7) million in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to €11.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash were €190.3 million as of December 31, 2017, compared to €228.2 million as of December 31, 2016.

Referral Revenue for the full year ended December 31, 2017, increased by 37%, 22% and 84% year-over-year in Americas, Developed Europe and RoW, respectively.
