Groupon Talks IPO [WSJ]
Investment bankers have been making proposals to online deals site Groupon Inc. about a proposed initial public offering for the past week through an informal “bake-off,” people familiar with the matter said. Groupon, which turned down a $6 billion takeover offer from Google Inc. last year and said it would raise $950 million in funding, has been planning its public debut for later this year, these people said. An IPO is likely “sooner rather than later,” and most likely to be this fall, one of the people familiar with the matter said.
