After a few hiccups, the Internet daily deal company made its debut in November on the Nasdaq stock market. Groupon's initial public offering valued the 3-year-old Chicago company at $12.8 billion, about double what Google reportedly offered for the company last year. The stock trades near its $20 IPO price amid concerns about the company's ability to generate long-term growth in a competitive industry it pioneered. In this photo, Groupon CEO Andrew Mason poses with his wife, pop musician Jenny Gillespie, outside the Nasdaq Market following his company's IPO in New York on Nov. 4, 2011.
