"Pandora continued growing revenue over 50 percent year-over-year," stated President & Chairman Brian McAndrews. "We continued to improve monetization, which was reflected in record RPMs on all dimensions of our business, and drove our first non-GAAP profitable year as a public company. Throughout the year, we were able to invest back into the business with notable achievements, improving our product, innovating across multiple technologies, devices and automotive platforms in our continuing efforts to reinvent radio and make Pandora available anytime, anywhere for millions of listeners. 2013 marked notable growth from user metrics to financial achievements. These have largely been driven by our position as a leader in mobile media, both in user engagement and monetization. We remain intensely focused on advancing Pandora's mission to reinvent radio. To fully capture the substantial market opportunity ahead of us, we will continue to aggressively invest in 2014 in sustained audience and engagement growth as well as activities that further accelerate monetization. As such, our bias will continue to be toward revenue growth and capturing additional market share."
