Google and Groupon

P Morgan Brown has a noteworthy article discussing Groupon's decision to spurn Google's $6 billion buyout offer and raise more cash themselves to expand.*

Beyond the specifics of the Groupon story itself, the article provides plenty of food for thought on important subjects such as acquisitions, the importance of management teams, different management styles, paradigm shifts and the interchange between the "engineer viewpoint" and the "salesforce perspective."

We believe these are important topics for investors to consider, and would recommend readers also look at few of our past posts on related subjects, including "The koi pond analogy of investing" and "Capable, dynamic management operating in a fertile field for future growth."
