NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Groupon Inc. (GRPN) rose 3.92% to $11.41, up 43 cents from its previous close of $10.98, at the close of the trading day on Tuesday after the company purchased fashion sale site Ideeli for $43 million in cash.
The stock had a volume of 12,349,752, well below its average of 19,659,800. It hit a high of $11.49 and a low of $11.03 for the day.
The purchase was a loss for Ideeli shareholders, as the company had received $107 million in venture capital from 2007 through 2013. Groupon announced that it plans to keep Ideeli running as a separate website but noted opportunities for synergy with the new acquisition.
Ideeli uses timed sales, similar to Groupon, to sell designer products at up to 90% off and features different brands each day. But this method had not yielded positive results for the company, which most recently operated at a $30 million loss.
Groupon's stock recovered somewhat on Tuesday morning after the company had trended downward for the better part of 2014.
