Groupon CEO Andrew Mason, in a letter to employees:
After four and a half intense and wonderful years as CEO of
Groupon, I’ve decided that I’d like to spend more time with my
family. Just kidding — I was fired today. If you’re wondering
why… you haven’t been paying attention. From controversial metrics
in our S1 to our material weakness to two quarters of missing our
own expectations and a stock price that’s hovering around one
quarter of our listing price, the events of the last year and a
half speak for themselves. As CEO, I am accountable.
Crummy CEO, but not a bullshitter.
