http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/115234/pandora-media-to-acquire-ticketfly-in-450-mln-deal-115234.html Pandora Media (NYSE:P), the biggest player in Internet radio, agreed to buy Ticketfly, an independent ticket seller, in a deal valued at $450mln.

The deal would be roughly split between cash and stock, the Oakland, California-based company said in a statement on Wednesday.

The move marks a significant shift for Pandora, which has been seeking to expand beyond its streaming music service. 

Pandora, which has nearly 80mln regular listeners, said that its acquisition would benefit artists and listeners.

“This is a game-changer for Pandora — and much more importantly — a game-changer for music,” Brian McAndrews, the company’s chief executive, said in the statement. 

“With Ticketfly, we will thrill music lovers and lift ticket sales for artists as the most effective marketplace for connecting music makers and fans.”

Ticketfly makes money selling tickets for concerts and other events at clubs like the Brooklyn Bowl, which has outposts in New York, Las Vegas and London.

Last year, Ticketfly sold 16,000 tickets worth more than $500mln.

 

Shares of Pandora Media fell 4.4% to $21.01 at 9:52 a.m. in New York, trimming this year’s gains to 17%.
