Item 5.04 Temporary Suspension of Trading Under Registrant’s Employee Benefit Plans

On November 18, 2011, Expedia, Inc. sent a notice to its directors and executive officers informing them of a temporary suspension of transactions by directors and executive officers involving Expedia equity securities during a blackout period under the Expedia Retirement Savings Plan (the “Plan”) as a result of Expedia’s expected reverse stock split and spin-off transaction (the “Spin-Off”). The notice stated that the blackout period was expected to begin during the calendar week of December 11, 2011 and end during the calendar week of December 18, 2011. Due to a revision in the expected timing of the Spin-Off, on December 15 and 16, 2011, pursuant to Section 306 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and Section 104 of Regulation BTR, Expedia sent a revised notice to its directors and executive officers, informing them that the blackout period is now expected to begin during the calendar week of December 18, 2011 and end prior to or during the calendar week of December 25, 2011.

A copy of the December 14, 2011 blackout notice to Expedia’s directors and executive officers is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
