LivingSocial Reportedly Prepping For IPO

Posted: Updated:

Another high-profile daily deals website is reportedly preparing to make a billion-dollar initial public offering.

LivingSocial is in talks with bankers about filing for an IPO of around $1 billion, which would value the company between $10 and $15 billion, reports CNBC.

LivingSocial, a direct competitor of Groupon, offers daily coupons for discounts at local merchants.

Groupon filed its S-1 form early in June and hopes to raise $750 million. Since then, critics have voiced their skepticism of the site's supposed valuation of $25 billion.

While LinkedIn's stock soared once it hit the public market, music startup Pandora received a somewhat less glowing reception.

Web retail giant Amazon invested $175 million into LivingSocial last year.
