Groupon Really Wants To Build Its Own Data Center, But Can't Afford It

Before its IPO, Groupon promised investors that it was going spend more money on data centers.  But its cash flow is brutally tight. Even with the $700 million it raised in its IP), it doesn't have the cash to build its own data center,  says BetaBeat. The company had $243.9 million in cash and equivalents when September closed, according to the Motley Fool.
