According to a post on PEHub (the “PE” stands for private equity), the site published a story reporting on analyst criticism about Groupon’s pre-IPO financials. After the post went up, the writer, Connie Loizos, says she was contacted by Brunswick Group‘s Michael Buckley, which is working with the daily deals company. Loizos writes that he called her post “silly” and “inaccurate” and then referred her to the leaked Andrew Mason memo for further evidence of how well the company is doing.
Finally, Loizos writes, Buckley asked her to give him a call before she published “another nastigram” about their client. This conversation sounds so pleasant, I don’t know why she wouldn’t.
