Why Groupon (GRPN) is Plummeting on Tuesday

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Shares of Groupon (GRPN - Get Report) are plummeting on Tuesday after the discounts site announced its product management SVP Jeffrey Holden would be leaving the company in just over a month.

By midmorning, shares had unloaded 8.2% to $10.17.

In an SEC filing, the company said Holden would be leaving the company effective March 18, but did not disclose a reason for the departure. Holden has been with the company since 2011 and had previously worked at Amazon (AMZN).
