Why the sense of urgency, ask 2 accounting profs about the rush to launch the Groupon (GRPN) IPO. They argue for a postponement until Groupon has in place the financial reporting necessary to either confirm or dismiss the viability of the company's business model. Either the prospects for a future IPO will be far brighter or this is "the 2011 version of the 1990s Internet bubble."
