A Superior Scalable Business Model

We are strongly positioned as an OTA leader in LatAm's massive and growing travel market, one that is 2.5 times larger than India's. Our market is also made up of a highly fragmented supplier base, lending itself to a large and scaled OTA like Despegar. In addition to near-term growth opportunities related to recovering global travel demand, our market's long-term growth dynamics continue gaining momentum. We have been executing well against a focused growth strategy, have significantly reduced Despegar's cost structure, and employ a proven and superior business model that can be rapidly scaled to accelerate organic growth and make additional acquisitions to expand even more within the region's travel market. Our Company has strong earnings power, driven by operating leverage and our ability to continually capture efficiencies in order to deliver higher levels of growth and profitability. Finally, from a valuation perspective, we believe Despegar offers an attractive entry point today, offering substantial upside given our compelling growth profile. We remain fully committed to delivering on our near- and long-term growth objectives, and continue communicating the high potential behind our equity story with the aim of closing Depegar's valuation gap.
