Groupon Inc. closed the regular session down 24.3 percent — blame weak revenue guidance and worries about the business model — but the stock was up more than 4 percent at 8:15 p.m. in after-hours trading after the company ousted CEO Andrew Mason.

Groupon said first-quarter revenue will be $560 million to $610 million; analysts predicted $647.7 million, Bloomberg says.
