Groupon is fighting back against two reports that recently surfaced claiming its U.S. revenue was clobbered in February.It is telling people February revenue was $103 million in the U.S., up from $92 million in January, TechCrunch reports.
TechCrunch previously reported Groupon’s U.S. revenue was $62 million for February based on a source that was scraping Groupon’s site and aggregating data. That would have been a steep drop on a month to month basis.
Other than TechCrunch, Jim Moran of Yipit was also forecasting a rough February for Groupon. His analysis relied on the top markets for Groupon. It’s possible sales are off in the top markets, but up in the rest of Groupon’s markets.
