NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Pandora Media  (P) reported lower-than-expected 2015 fourth quarter results after the market close on Thursday.

The Internet radio company posted earnings of 4 cents per share, which was lower than analysts' forecasts for earnings of 7 cents per share. However, revenue of $336.2 million beat analysts' estimates for revenue of $331.2 million.

On Thursday, shares of Pandora surged after the New York Times reported that the company is considering selling itself.

Additionally, the company announced that it is investing about $120 million in an on-demand subscription service, but Pandora's ability to acquire a subscription base without "cannibalizing" its core business is still unproven, Credit Suisse said in a note.

The firm lowered its price target on Pandora stock to $17 from $24, while maintaining its "neutral" rating on the stock.

Pandora stock is up 2.74% to $9.36 in pre-market trading on Friday.
