We won’t hold our breath for a 50% off deal, but if you haven’t burned all of your investment dollars in RenRen or the (in our opinion) better positioned LinkedIn or Yandex you’ll be happy to know that Groupon will officially be going public. Until GRPN shares officially start trading, the company’s value will remain fluid, but suffice it to say the market cap is likely going to be much more than the $6 billion Google offer that Groupon turned down. The last widely quoted estimate placed Groupon’s value at $25 billion, but we’ve seen with LinkedIn that pent up interest can quickly balloon to figures many times more pre-market estimates.
That being said, we learned a bit from Groupon’s S-1 form: here are a few of the most interesting financials and figures.
