Rowe Price Group Inc. and Oberndorf Enterprises LLC, the company said in a statement Monday. The investment follows a $150 million equity round in November, when IAC said it planned to spin Vimeo off into a separately traded company.The new capital will be used to accelerate investment into growth, innovation and talent, the company said.“As the world embraces video like never before, Vimeo is in an incredibly strong position,” Chief Executive Officer Anjali Sud said in the statement.Video services such as Vimeo have benefited during the pandemic as more businesses and people are turning to the medium to communicate and conduct business while working from home.

The initial public offering has given investors a reason to take a fresh look at Airbnb’s rivals—online travel agencies.
Wells Fargo analyst Brian Fitzgerald upgraded shares of Expedia Group Inc. to overweight from equal weight Friday, writing that the strong debut for Airbnb Inc. highlights considerable interest in the home-rental segment and offers a chance for Expedia to unlock more value for Vrbo, its own home-rental platform. "We believe that 1) a return to more transparent disclosure of Vrbo's financial performance, 2) efforts to further increase monetization, and/or 3) a Vrbo IPO (taking a page from the IAC/EXPE playbook) could represent significant value drivers for EXPE stock," he wrote in a note to clients. Fitzgerald argued that "some discount is appropriate vs. ABNB given the latter's strong, global brand and massive host footprint" though he said that Vrbo also deserves a premium multiple. He said that the slower-than-expected pace of the vaccine rollout could benefit Vrbo over the summer, making whole-home rentals seem more attractive. Expedia shares have gained 50% over the past three months as the S&P 500 has risen 12%.
