Groupon () sold 35 million shares at $20, raising $700 million. The online deal provider is making only 5% of its shares available for trading, leaving plenty of room for further offerings.
The opening print of Groupon's stock was $28, earning IPO buyers 40% overnight.
Meanwhile, another big Internet IPO from this year, LinkedIn (), released its second earnings report as a publicly traded company. The social network for professionals beat consensus estimates and raised guidance for next quarter, but its shares still plunged 4.3% on news of a $500 million secondary offering.
On the surface, the amount does not seem so big for an $8 billion dollar company, but it actually more than doubles its float (the number of shares that are publicly available for trading). LinkedIn, just like Groupon, offered only 5% of its outstanding shares on its IPO day back in May.
