In its first earnings release as a public company, Groupon reported a 2011 fourth-quarter loss of $9.8 million on an adjusted basis, disappointing investors.  Additional investor concern arose after the company restated 2011 revenues downward in March 2012. 
The name Groupon is a blend of “group” and “coupon”. Groupon''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s first deal was a half-price offer for pizzas at Motel Bar, a restaurant on the first floor of its building in Chicago.
