12:48 EDTPPandora sinks after $450M Ticketfly acquisition
Pandora (P), a music streaming and automated music recommendation service, is trading lower after announcing it will acquire ticketing company Ticketfly. Ticketfly competes with much larger rival Ticketmaster, a unit of Live Nation (LYV). WHAT'S NEW: Pandora announced the $450M Ticketfly acquisition this morning, referring to the combination as the definitive music platform for connecting fans, artists and event promoters. The Pandora Ticketfly hook-up will address the "longstanding problem" of finding events by giving promoters and venues access to Pandora's targeted audience of nearly 80M music fans, the company said. "This is a game-changer for Pandora - and much more importantly - a game-changer for music," said Brian McAndrews, chief executive officer at Pandora. "Over the past 10 years, we have amassed the largest, most engaged audience in streaming music history. With Ticketfly, we will thrill music lovers and lift ticket sales for artists as the most effective marketplace for connecting music makers and fans." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Pandora, which competes with Apple (AAPL) Music and Spotify, has been expanding the services it provides to artists. Last year it introduced the Artist Marketing Platform, or AMP, that allows musicians free access to the data it stores about their fan base. In May, Pandora announced that it has agreed to acquire Next Big Sound, a provider of online music analytics. ANALYST TAKE: In a note to investors this morning, Piper Jaffray analyst James Marsh said he sees Pandora accelerating tickets sales across the Ticketfly platform. Marsh, who kept an Overweight rating on Pandora shares, sees substantial leverage for Pandora's sales force platform generating advertising and sponsorship opportunities to live events. According to the analyst, the Ticketfly purchase along with Pandora's past initiatives may pave the way for the music streaming service company to get direct licensing deals that could enable Pandora to offer its service in markets outside the U.S. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Pandora are down 5% to $20.87 uin afternoon trading, while Live Nation is about flat at $25.40.
