The new president looked at me and said: “If I have to be broke at the end of the day, don’t make me be tired as well.” I knew exactly what he meant as I was the Vice President of Operations in a business where much of management’s compensation was based on increasing revenue. The parent company had installed a new President to correct the issues with rapid revenue growth that was not translating into increased profitability.

Our compensation structure for all of the sales related positions was heavily weighted toward increasing sales without regard to the profit margins involved.

HomeAway, Inc. (AWAY), the leading online website for the vacation rentals, rose 46.2% in the fourth quarter. HomeAway reported strong results that beat street estimates for sales and cash flow and posted a sequential acceleration in listing growth. The company recently launched a new service called Pay Per Bookings (PPB), and early results were encouraging. We believe PPB will provide nice incremental growth, not cannibalize, the core subscription business and increase the company's overall opportunity and growth rate. We continue to consider HomeAway an industry leader that is in the early innings of converting a traditional business to a digital

HomeAway, Inc. (AWAY) was down 13.5% in the third quarter. HomeAway is the #1 player in online vacation rentals with over 700,000 paid listings. We believe the stock's performance during the third quarter was impacted by a sell-side downgrade of the stock to equal-weight based on concerns around slowing listings growth. We continue to hold shares as we believe HomeAway listings growth will reaccelerate, that the company is pursuing a number of exciting new initiatives, such as online bookings, and that the company is in the early innings of consolidating a highly fragmented market.

HomeAway, Inc. (AWAY) is the leading website for vacation home rentals. Homeowners generally pay an annual subscription fee to HomeAway to showcase their rental properties to the site's users. We believe this business model has classic 'network effects,' whereby more listings attract more renters and vice versa. Shares fell in the quarter over concerns about a slowdown in new property listings on the site. We believe that listings growth will reaccelerate as the company introduces new pricing plans, which should also allow the compan y to capture higher reven ues per listing. We believe that HomeAway is in the early

HomeAway, Inc. (AWAY), the leading online provider of listings and services to the vacation rental industry, rose 48% in the quarter due to strong fourth quarter results. We admire HomeAway's business model and positioning and believe that the company can grow its cash flow multiple fold going forward, as it adds listings, grows revenue per listing and increases its margins through scale. Though this opportunity is not lost on investors, the stock had fallen late last year because the rate of growth was decelerating and the company did not meet earnings expectations. We added to our position believing the stock

From Baron Funds' first quarter letter: HomeAway, Inc. (AWAY) is the leading online marketplace for vacation rentals. Its websites offer extensive listings to travelers and make it easy for rental property owners and property managers to advertise their properties and manage bookings online. We believe that HomeAway is a dominant category killer in a rapidly growing niche. One can appreciate the value it offers property owners since it is rewarded by high renewal rates and as such have created a very sticky and sustainable business model.We believe that HomeAway will successfully add more properties to its boards, be able to
