As it does every quarter, Groupon reported its financial results today, bringing in $750.4 million in revenue and earnings per share of $0.03. Analysts had expected the company to report earnings per share of $0.01 on revenues of $812.2 million or so for its fiscal Q1 2015. So we’re looking at a mixed quarter for Groupon, and investors don’t seem to know what to make of it. In after-hours trading, the company slipped slightly, rebounded, and then slipped again.
Broadly, Groupon isn’t growing much, or shrinking much. Compared to Groupon’s Q1 2014 revenue, Q1 2015 revenue is down slightly — if you ignore Ticket Monster revenue.
Updated May 6 to clarify that YoY Q1 revenue is only down if you exclude Ticket Monster revenues.
