Long Awaited Groupon (GRPN) IPO To Arrive Friday
November 02, 2011 08:40 PM
While I think in the very long run this one will end badly, I expect fireworks Friday as Groupon (GRPN) comes public with one of the smallest floats every seen. (less supply = artificially high prices) Obviously this one has a name recognizable to the retail masses, which will also help feed the frenzy.
According to sources close to the situation,
daily deals site Groupon is planning on pricing its IPO tomorrow and officially becoming a public company Friday
, listing on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol GRPN.
The company and its investment bankers
have not yet decided whether to boost the price of the offering, now aimed to raise $540 million at a valuation of $11.4 billion
. Although the Chicago-based Groupon has endured an unusual amount of controversy over a variety of issues — including accounting treatments, executive turmoil and growth prospects — sources said
the offering is likely to be oversubscribed as investors clamor to get into a possibly lucrative IPO
Executives from Groupon, including its CEO Andrew Mason, have been hawking the company — which sells an assortment of discounted services from a variety of local merchants — to investors all over the country. Despite the intense criticism, the quirky Groupon had pushed on through and will now face its toughest test — acting like a big-boy company with public shareholders.
