Groupon deve abrir capital IPO us$ 25 bi !!

Há especulações de que o Groupon abra seu capital em IPO por US$ 25 bilhões. Mas, isto parece muita grana, mesmo pro Groupon. O recordista (highest-valued venture-backed company) até então é o Google que saiu por US$ 24.6 bilhões.

O Groupon tem 2 anos de vida (começou em November 2008). O Google tinha 6 anos qdo abriu IPO.

Adorei essa frase sobre “key to Groupon’s long-term valuation”:

But how many of those customers come back to pay full price? There is no good way of measuring that yet. And that is going to be the key to Groupon’s long-term valuation, whether or not it is creating repeat, loyal customers for merchants or just a stampede of deal-hungry coupon clippers.
