“We believe the company has a strong competitive advantage in the U.S. market due to network effects. It also has plenty of opportunity for growth with 49% of all restaurants and 16% of reservation-making seated diners using the service, with much lower penetration rates in its international markets. We expect OpenTable to become a destination platform for diners anywhere. The company should have steady, sustainable growth ahead.,” the firm’s analyst commented.
