Groupon CEO Andrew Mason says he would step down if he thought it would help the company.

His comments came following reports he could come under fire when the company's board meets Thursday.

Groupon stock has been dropping for several months. Mason says it would be strange if the board did not discuss his performance. But he expects to retain their backing.
