Haha! What a farce that idea is for the public, though many will fall for it, if it happens which I doubt. Lots of businesses try to get listed when they cannot sell there company.

The sad thing is I didn't find it so at all, this is happening all the time.

Another variant (article yesterday) an Eritrean just jailed in the UK for murder, and the Home Office had already deported him back to Eritrea three times previously! Border controls anyone?

I'm with JR8, this is appalling for the UK! This kind of thing shouldn't be an issue in the first place!

I wish I would have been stupid enough to get myself some groupon shares . . . at 30%

Groupon only floated 5% of its shares outstanding and they surged up to 50% higher than listed . . .

Groupon is making nice profits and fills a niche that is going to be worth hundreds of millions, probably billions.

I met the Malaysian head of Groupon . . . he's set for life

This is nothing new is it! IPO's launch shares tend to rise more often than not before they fall! Did you miss out?

Didn't Groupon half the IPO price a few days prior to this partial float?

Doesn't bode well to me... they seem all over the place.
