Groupon is transitioning into a diversified e-commerce business. CEO Lefkofsky seems to be making all the right moves. Yet, it is a risk bet currently, albeit a cheap one. The coming quarters will give a clearer view of GRPN as an investment.

Groupon started by giving deals of the day to its customers. This was a great way to get a bargain for the end customers and for the business owners to give bulk discount and get additional advertising. However it led to several issues like the business owners not being able to cater to excess demand and lower quality of products. Groupon performance in the market has also been hit by the fact that it has still not shown profitability to the investors. Many other similar business models have fallen in the dust and none of them have shown a sustainable working model. Groupon revenue and Groupon assets have not increased significantly either.
