Rumour Google Buys Groupon

Rumour Google Buys Groupon

Rumours have been doing the rounds for weeks now, with Google reportedly having finalized a $2.5 billion deal to buy group buying site Groupon.

Rumours of Google acquiring Groupon have been on the radar for over a week now, since November 19, when it was reported that Google had made an offer of between $2 billion to $3 billion.

VatorNews was first to report that Google has already acquired Groupon, although neither company has yet confirmed the deal.

VatorNews cites an "unnamed insider" that is a "reliable" source, who told them Google "has just purchased Groupon for $2.5 billion."

Groupon was founded back in 2008. The company's revenues are apparently in the region of $50 million a month, from 20 million subscribers across 29 countries throughout Europe, North America, Latin America, and Asia.
