Top Hat Monocle says that over the past month, his Toronto start-up has received hundreds of résumés from Groupon sales representatives who may want to jump ship, according to this new Wall Street Journal story.
Groupon is the leader in the online coupon market where Gannett has launched DealChicken. But shares in the Chicago-based site have plunged 72% since it public in November.
In July, meanwhile, GCI CEO Gracia Martore told Wall Street analysts that DealChicken's second-quarter revenue had jumped along with its visitor count.
Groupon investors could get some good news today if it manages to report quarterly financial results that are in line with forecasts. Then it might just have a chance to do something about its stock price.
