Company Description

Launched in November 2008, Groupon features a daily deal on the best stuff to do, see, eat, and buy in 48 countries, and soon beyond (read: Space). We have about 10,000 employees working across our Chicago headquarters, a growing office in Palo Alto, CA, local markets throughout North America and regional offices in Europe, Latin America, Asia and around the world. Our company philosophy is pretty simple: we treat our customers the way we like to be treated. That boils down to a few key things: We sell stuff we want to buy. A great price is only half the battle - it's also got to be a great product or service. Between our top-rated business partners and unbeatable prices, you should feel comfortable venturing out and trying something new - just because it's featured on Groupon. We want Groupon to be an addiction you can feel good about. No BS. We really want you to love Groupon. "Gotchas" and buried conditions that sour the experience are a terrible way to accomplish that goal. We want each Groupon purchase to feel too good to be true, from the moment you buy to the day you use it. If there's anything unusual about a deal (e.g. an inconvenient location) we go out of our way to point it out

PCM seeks to maximize after-tax capital appreciation by assuming high levels of risk in an aggressively managed portfolio of securities. There are no restrictions on the type of instruments in which they may invest, although PCM invests primarily in publicly traded equity securities, as well as options, warrants, and swaps related to equity securities. The firm makes investment decisions on the basis of fundamental security analysis which is premised on research into the capital structure, financial statements and management of a company. Portfolio managers conduct such research by reference to, among other things, regulatory filings by issuers, data provided by regulatory agencies, discussions and meetings with executives and industry experts, periodicals and on-line news sources, third-party research and independent data providers. After the research, portfolio managers will form the basis for investment decisions through the judgments about the financial strength, valuation and outlook of a company.
