Biggest movers on the ASX Wednesday 15 December 2021

Helloworld Travel (HLO) was the biggest mover on the ASX today with shares in the company rising 10.9% to $2.54 at the time of writing.

The company jumped on news that it is selling its corporate and entertainment travel business in Australia and New Zealand to Corporate Travel Management.

At the same time during the announcement, Helloworld noted it is starting to benefit from a post-COVID-19 rebound.

In a statement to the ASX, Helloworld's CEO and managing director Andrew Burnes said:

"While our corporate and entertainment travel businesses are in the early stages of benefiting from the COVID-19 rebound, we believe this transaction is at a compelling valuation to maximise HLO shareholder value and that will allow HLO to focus on operations which pre-COVID-19, represented 80% of our TTV. This will allow the business to capitalise on what we expect to be very significant opportunities during the recovery period ahead."

Helloworld Travel trades in the consumer services sector.
