Pandora Media NYSE:P Downgraded on Earnings and Apple Inc. NASDAQ: AAPL
Pandora Media NYSE:P reports, forecasts, and falls
Pandora Media Inc. reported Q-3 Y 2012 earnings after markets closed Tuesday. For the Quarter, the Internet radio company posted EPS of 0.05 on revenues of $120-M. In the same period last year, the company reported EPS of 0.02 on revenues of $75-M.
The Q-3 results compare to the Thomson Reuters consensus estimate for EPS of 0.01 on $117-M in revenues.
On a GAAP basis, the company reported diluted EPS of 0.01. Adjusted earnings excluded $7.1-M in stock-based compensation expense. In the same period last year, stock-based compensation expense totaled $2.7-M and GAAP EPS were break-even.
The company’s CEO said: This quarter exceeded our expectations as we monetized mobile at record levels and grew total mobile revenue 112%.
Unfortunately, the press release does not attach a dollar amount to that doubling of revenue.
For Q-4, Pandora guided revenue at $120 to 123-M and an adjusted EPS loss of 0.06 to 0.09, again attributed to stock-based compensation expense. The consensus estimate called for revenue of $130.3-M and EPS of 0.02.
For fiscal year Y 2013, Pandora guided revenue at $422 to 425-M and an adjusted EPS loss of 0.09 to 0.12, once more attributed to stock-based compensation expense. The consensus estimate calls for EPS of 0.07 on revenue of $613.1-M.
Pandora’s advertising revenue grew more than 61% Y-Y to $106.3-M, while subscription revenue rose 52% to $13.7-M. Marketing and sales costs rose $1.7-M Y-Y and general and administrative expenses were up more than 4X.
The company’s shares were hammered last month on reports that Apple Inc. NASDAQ: AAPL was working on a competing product. The real problem for Pandora is that its revenue stream is not growing fast enough, even without Apple as a competitor.
