Flash sales site Gilt Groupe reportedly planning IPO; Zulily higher

  • Sources tell Bloomberg leading apparel/luxury goods flash sales site Gilt Groupe has hired Goldman to help take it public. An IPO timeframe hasn't yet been decided.
  • Gilt had 2012 revenue of $550M, and was valued at $1B in a 2011 funding round. But sales volatility and intensifying competition have triggered layoffs and executive upheaval. Several rivals have either downsized or gone out of business.
  • Rival Zulily (ZU +4.1%), which delivered a strong IPO last year, is trading higher.
