Groupon has tumbled 79 percent since selling shares at $20 apiece in a November initial public offering as a series of accounting restatements rattled investors. The company in March reported "material weakness" in financial controls, a move that was preceded by the restatement of 2010 earnings results. While Ernst & Young LLP was Groupon's auditor, KPMG has worked to help address accounting flaws, the company said in April.

The shares gained less than 1 percent to $4.30 at 10:05 a.m. in New York.
