Here’s a funny video from Bloomberg TV’s Emily Chang. On Friday she tried chasing down Groupon CEO Andrew Mason and Chairman Eric Lefkofsky for a comment after the company’s stock started trading. They both just ignored her.
Groupon and Bloomberg have some history. Bloomberg reported Eric Lefkofsky’s said Groupon was going to be wildly profitable during the quiet period. This forced the company to amend its S1.
In the video Mason ignores Chang. Then he says, “Try again,” so she does. Then he ignores her again. As she pointed out, the CEO of all the other IPO companies appeared on Bloomberg, but Groupon’s execs did no press.
