Pandora Media’s 4Q15 and fiscal 2015 results

On February 11, 2016, Pandora Media (P) announced its fiscal 4Q15 and 2015 results. Pandora had revenues of $336.2 million in fiscal 4Q15, a growth of 25% year-over-year. However, in fiscal 4Q15, Pandora had adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) of $24.8 million, a decline of 43% year-over-year.

The company had a non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) adjusted diluted EPS (earnings per share) of $0.04 per share in fiscal 4Q15, which fell short of consensus Wall Street analysts’ estimates of $0.07 per share.

The company’s share price has fallen by 40.3% year-to-date. However, the company’s stock price was up by 8.5% on the day the earnings were announced. The reason for this rise in the company’s stock price was possibly a New York Times report that stated that the company is considering a sell-off.

McAndrews, stated, “I don’t know how to answer that, this is not something we are focused on, we are focused on working as an independent company and driving our business and we’re a public company and all that that entails.”
