Groupon’s IPO Presentation Pitch
Failing to win enough repeat customers may dampen the rapid growth that currently supports the company's roughly $11 billion valuation
As of Sept. 30, Groupon had 143 million subscribers, but in the third quarter only 30 million of them bought Groupons. Groupon currently has a salesforce of over 4,800, according to its IPO prospectus.Repeat customers increased from the second quarter but only numbered 16 million, according to a regulatory filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Why is Groupon's growth rate collapsing?
There are a few potential reasons why their revenue growth could be stalling.
According to Yipit Reduced marketing spend. While Groupon was able to break even this quarter, they did so by reducing their marketing spend. Unfortunately, marketing spend also fuels growth by acquiring new subscribers. Groupon grew their subscribe base by 23% this quarter. The previous quarter, they grew by 39%.
Competition. As competition in the space heats up with Google Offers, Amazon and LivingSocial, Groupon is getting crowded out of the inbox. In Q3, the number of Groupons sold grew just 1% despite Groupon growing their subscribe base 23%.
