The Priceline Group Inc. announced that it has agreed to invest an additional $500 million in Ctrip.com International, Ltd. (“Ctrip”), China’s leading online travel company, through a convertible bond.

“Today’s announcement reflects our ongoing commitment to the partnership between Ctrip and The Priceline Group, which began in 2012,” said Darren Huston, CEO of Booking.com and President & CEO of The Priceline Group. “The investment is an important part of our broader strategy to continue to grow our online travel business to, from and within China.”
