The Oakland, CA-based company became a publicly-traded concern earlier this year. Since being listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “P,” Pandora’s revenue has jumped by triple digits, and it looks likely the company could reach a break-even point by early 2012. The company now boasts more than 37 million active listeners, and more recently added comedy to its content lineup.
