Sabre’s acquisition of Farelogix is now expected to close in the middle of the year, rather than earlier, according to Sabre CEO Sean Menke, speaking during an earnings call with investors. The executive said the delay is a result of investigation by the Department of Justice, which he said was expected. The acquisition is subject to regulatory approval and the DOJ oversees competition issues. Farelogix offers airlines solutions to create and deliver personalized, differentiated offers across sales channels. Menke said the Farelogix acquisition “allows us to really put our money where our mouth is, relative to making sure that we're continuing to evolve in the marketplace.” He said that in talks with airlines and travel agencies, all parties see a model that has worked over a number of years, “but there's this desire, as I often say, behind door number two of how do you continue to evolve?”
