Groupon's S-1 registration statement for its pending IPO is 138 pages long -- and that's before you get to the index of consolidated financial statements and exhibits, which could fill a few more boxes.
Reading the fine print, we know that travel will be a central part of Groupon's business in the future, as punctuated by Expedia's views about why hotels should get onboard.
Of course, others, including Tnooz node Stephen Joyce, believe daily deals could be a rough ride unless the supplier fully understands the proposition and uses caution.
Now, thanks to the research and graphic talents of OnlineMBA.com, you can peruse the infographic below to retrieve some of the salient points in Groupon's weighty trove of SEC documents about the IPO (although there is no guarantee that Groupon agrees with OnlineMBA.com's interpretation of them), and you'll also get lots of background about the daily deals space.
There's even fun speculation that, given the torrent of criticism about the IPO, perhaps Groupon is reconsidering a buyout offer from Google.
So, without further delay, have some happy viewing. (And it wouldn't be surprising to find the infographic taped to the refrigerator of a friend or colleague. In fact, there may soon be a local deal on Scotch Tape at a retailer near you).
