BuyWithMe has been shedding employees in preparation to be acquired, says BetaBeat’s Ben Popper.The buyer, he says, is Gilt Groupe.

Last week, Popper reported that the daily deals site cut more than half its staff.  Starting November 1, BuyWithMe will officially belong to Gilt Groupe. After that, Popper says the remaining BuyWithMe staff will be let go, leaving Gilt with just its technology and a few executives.

It’s not clear what will happen to BuyWithMe employee stock options.

We’ve reached out to Gilt for comment and will give an update when we hear back.
