Item 1.01                 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 8, 2017, Pandora Media, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company” or “Pandora”), announced the entry into an Investment Agreement dated as of May 8, 2017 (the “Investment Agreement”) between the Company and an affiliate of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts LLC (“KKR”) relating to the issuance and sale to KKR of 150,000 shares of the Company’s Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Series A Preferred Stock”), for an aggregate purchase price of $150 million, or $1,000 per share. Under the Investment Agreement, the Company may also issue up to an additional $100 million of Series A Preferred Stock. The closing of the transaction contemplated by the Investment Agreement is conditioned upon certain customary closing conditions, including, among others, obtaining clearance under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act, and is expected to close no earlier than June 8, 2017.

The Series A Preferred Stock will rank senior to the shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), with respect to dividend rights, redemption rights and rights on the distribution of assets on any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Company. The Series A Preferred Stock will have a liquidation preference of $1,000 per share. Holders of Series A Preferred Stock will be entitled to a cumulative dividend at the rate of 7.5% per annum, payable quarterly in arrears, as set forth in the Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock classifying the Series A Preferred Stock, a form of which is attached as Annex I to the Investment Agreement (the “Certificate of Designation”). If the Company does not declare and pay a dividend, the dividend rate will increase by 0.5% to 8.0% per annum until all accrued but unpaid dividends have been paid in full.

The Series A Preferred Stock will be convertible at the option of the holders at any time into shares of Common Stock at an initial conversion price of $13.50 per share and an initial conversion rate of 74.0741 shares of Common Stock per share of Series A Preferred Stock, subject to certain customary anti-dilution adjustments. Any conversion of Series A Preferred Stock may be settled by the Company, at its option, in shares of Common Stock at the conversion rate, cash in an amount equal to the market value of the shares of Common Stock into which the Series A Preferred Stock is to converted or any combination thereof.

Holders of Series A Preferred Stock will be entitled to vote with the holders of the Common Stock on an as-converted basis. Holders of Series A Preferred Stock will be entitled to a separate class vote with respect to amendments to the Company’s organizational documents that have an adverse effect on the Series A Preferred Stock, issuances by the Company of securities that are senior to, or equal in priority with, the Series A Preferred Stock and the incurrence of indebtedness for borrowed money in excess of both $700 million and three times trailing four quarter Consolidated EBITDA (as defined in the Certificate of Designations).

Upon certain change of control events involving the Company, the Company will be required to repurchase all of the Series A Preferred Stock at the greater of (1) an amount in cash equal to 100% of the liquidation preference thereof plus all accrued but unpaid dividends plus a change of control premium and (2) the consideration the holders would have received if they had converted their shares of Series A Preferred Stock into Common Stock immediately prior to the change of control event. Additionally, upon certain insolvency events involving the Company, the Company will be required to repurchase all of the Series A Preferred Stock for an amount in cash equal to 100% of the liquidation preference thereof plus all accrued but unpaid dividends.

On any date after the fifth anniversary of the closing, holders of Series A Preferred Stock will have the right to require the Company to redeem all or any portion of the Series A Preferred Stock at 100% of the liquidation preference thereof plus all accrued but unpaid dividends, at the election of the Company, for cash, shares of Common Stock or a combination thereof.

On any date after the third anniversary of the date of the issuance of the Series A Preferred Stock, if the volume weighted average price of the Common Stock exceeds $20.25, as may be adjusted pursuant to the Certificate of Designations, for at least 20 trading days in any period of 30 consecutive trading days, all of the Series A Preferred Stock may be redeemed, at the election of the Company, for cash, shares of Common Stock or a combination thereof.
Pursuant to the Investment Agreement, the Company has agreed to elect Richard Sarnoff to the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”). KKR’s right to designate a director to the Board shall continue until KKR or its affiliates fail to beneficially own a specified threshold of shares of Series A Preferred Stock and/or shares of Common Stock issued upon conversion of Series A Preferred Stock (the “Fall-Away of KKR’s Board Rights”). After the Fall-Away of KKR’s Board Rights occurs, the holders of a majority of the Series A Preferred Stock will have the right to designate a director to the Board, and the Company agrees under the Investment Agreement to include such director in the Company’s slate of director nominees for the Company’s annual meetings, unless all initial holders of the Series A Preferred Stock fail to beneficially own in the aggregate a





specified threshold of shares of Series A Preferred Stock and/or shares of Common Stock issued upon conversion of Series A Preferred Stock.

KKR and certain holders of the Series A Preferred Stock that become party to the Investment Agreement will be subject to certain standstill restrictions, including, among other things, that they will be restricted from acquiring additional securities of the Company, beginning on the Closing Date until the date that is six months after the date on which both (1) KKR and its permitted transferees no longer have the right to designate a Board member under the terms of the Investment Agreement and (2) the director designated by the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock is no longer serving on the Board. Subject to certain customary exceptions, KKR and certain holders of the Series A Preferred Stock that become party to the Investment Agreement will, subject to certain exceptions, be restricted from transferring the Series A Preferred Stock or Common Stock issued upon conversion of Series A Preferred Stock until the one-year anniversary of the Closing Date.

The Investment Agreement may be terminated by either party if closing has not occurred by August 8, 2017. The Investment Agreement may also be terminated by the Company within 30 days in the event that (1) a bona fide acquisition proposal for ownership of 50% or more of the Company’s total assets or capital stock has been made to the Company, the Company’s stockholders or in the event that such proposal is announced publicly and (2) the Company approves, recommends, or publicly declares advisable any letter of intent, acquisition agreement, or other forms of agreements to consummate the acquisition proposal. In the event of such termination, the Company shall pay KKR a fee of $15,000,000.

KKR and certain holders of the Series A Preferred Stock and their affiliates will have certain customary registration rights with respect to the Series A Preferred Stock and the Common Stock issued upon conversion of Series A Preferred Stock pursuant to the terms of a registration rights agreement, a form of which is attached as Annex II to the Investment Agreement.

The foregoing description of the terms of the Series A Preferred Stock, the Investment Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Investment Agreement and the annexes thereto, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1, and is incorporated herein by reference.

A copy of the press release announcing the execution of the Investment Agreement and the transactions contemplated by the Investment Agreement is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.

Item 3.02                 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

The information contained in Item 1.01 is incorporated herein by reference.

As described in Item 1.01, under the terms of the Investment Agreement, the Company has agreed to issue shares of Series A Preferred Stock to KKR. This issuance and sale will be exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act. KKR represented to the Company that it is an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501 of the Securities Act and that the Series A Preferred Stock is being acquired for investment purposes and not with a view to, or for sale in connection with, any distribution thereof, and appropriate legends will be affixed to any certificates evidencing the shares of Series A Preferred Stock or Common Stock issued upon conversion of Series A Preferred Stock.

Item 5.02                 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On May 12, 2017, James M. P. Feuille and Peter Gotcher each resigned from the Board effective immediately. The resignations of Messrs. Feuille and Gotcher did not result from any disagreement with the Company, the Company’s management or the Board. Mr. Feuille was a chairman of the Board, chairman of the Compensation Committee and a member of the Audit Committee. Mr. Gotcher was chairman of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and a member of the Compensation Committee.

A copy of the press release announcing the above changes to the Board is attached as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.

The Purchaser Parties will cause each Purchaser Designee to make himself or herself reasonably available for interviews and to consent to such reference and background checks or other investigations as the Board may reasonably request from any individual nominated as a director of the Company to determine the Purchaser’s Nominee’s eligibility and qualification to serve as a director of the Company.

from the Company. If the Company offers two (2) or more securities in units to the other participants in the offering, the Purchaser Parties must purchase such units as a whole and will not be given the opportunity to purchase only one (1) of the securities making up such unit. The closing of the exercise of such subscription right shall take place simultaneously with the closing of the sale of the Proposed Securities giving rise to such subscription right; provided, however, that the closing of any purchase by any such Purchaser Party may be extended beyond the closing of the sale of the Proposed Securities giving rise to such preemptive right to the extent necessary to (i) obtain required approvals from any Governmental Authority or (ii) permit the Purchaser Parties to receive proceeds from calling capital pursuant to commitments made by its (or its affiliated investment funds’) limited partners. Upon the expiration of the offering period described above, the Company will be free to sell such Proposed Securities that the Purchaser Parties have not elected to purchase during the 90 days following such expiration on terms and conditions no more favorable to the purchasers thereof than those offered to the Purchaser Parties in the notice delivered in accordance with Section 5.14(b). Any Proposed Securities offered or sold by the Company after such 90-day period shall be reoffered to the Purchaser Parties pursuant to this Section 5.14.
(d)    The election by any Purchaser Party not to exercise its subscription rights under this Section 5.14 in any one instance shall not affect their right as to any subsequent proposed issuance.
(e)    Notwithstanding anything in this Section 5.14 to the contrary, the Company will not be deemed to have breached this Section 5.14 if not later than thirty (30) Business Days following the issuance of any Proposed Securities in contravention of this Section 5.14, the Company or the transferee of such Proposed Securities offers to sell a portion of such equity securities or additional equity securities of the type(s) in question to each Purchaser Party so that, taking into account such previously-issued Proposed Securities and any such additional Proposed Securities, each Purchaser Party will have had the right to purchase or subscribe for Proposed Securities in a manner consistent with the allocation and other terms and upon same economic and other terms provided for in Sections 5.14(b) and 5.14(c).
(f)    In the case of an issuance subject to this Section 5.14 for consideration in whole or in part other than cash, including securities acquired in exchange therefor (other than securities by their terms so exchangeable), the consideration other than cash shall be deemed to be the Fair Market Value thereof.
Section 5.15    Certain Redemptions. If a Physical Settlement or Combination Settlement under Section 9 or Section 10 of the Certificate of Designations would result in the issuance to the Purchaser Parties and their Affiliates of five percent (5.0%) or more, but less than ten percent (10.0%), of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company as of the relevant Redemption Date (after giving effect to such issuance), then in addition to the settlement of the Redemption Price for each redeemed Share of Series A Preferred Stock from the Purchaser Parties and their Affiliates, the Company shall pay to the Purchaser Parties an aggregate amount of cash (the “Additional Amount”) equal to the Applicable Percentage (as defined below) multiplied by the aggregate Redemption Price to be paid to the Purchaser Parties and their Affiliates (such payment to be made pro rata among the Purchaser Parties and their Affiliates based on the number of shares

37



of Series A Preferred Stock being redeemed by each of them). The “Applicable Percentage” means the result of (i) the percentage of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company as of the relevant Redemption Date issued to the Purchaser Parties and their Affiliates in the redemption (after giving effect to such issuance) minus (ii) five percent (5.0%).
Section 5.16    Credit Agreement. If the Company proposes to enter into any new credit facility after the date hereof or to extend the maturity of the Credit Agreement, the Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain terms and conditions under such credit facility or extension that would permit the redemption of the Series A Preferred Stock pursuant to Sections 8, 8.1, 9 and 10 of the Certificate of Designations entirely for cash. For the avoidance of doubt, the Company should have no liability to the Purchasers if it is not able to obtain the foregoing terms and conditions.
Section 5.17    Offers and Sales of Series A Preferred Stock by the Lead Purchasers. The Lead Purchasers shall not take any action or omit to take any action in connection with the offering for sale and/or sale by the Lead Investor of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock if such action or omission would result in a requirement under the Securities Act to register the offer and/or sale of shares of Series A Preferred Stock by the Company.
Section 5.18    FCC.  The Company and the Lead Purchasers shall use their commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate, including in the restructuring of the Transactions (provided that, for the avoidance of doubt, such restructuring shall not amend Section 5.10 of this Agreement), to avoid any requirement for approval of the Transactions by the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”), including, without limitation, any approvals required pursuant to (x) the FCC Declaratory Ruling applicable to the Company and its Subsidiaries and (y) the FCC’s foreign ownership rules. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if, prior to June 1, 2017, the parties have not either (i) determined that approval of the Transactions by the FCC is not required or (ii) agreed upon a restructuring of the Transactions that the parties determine will not require approval by the FCC, then the Company hereby agrees to return the license of Radio Station KXMZ to the FCC for cancellation no later than June 2, 2017. In any event, the Company agrees to dispose of Radio Station KXMZ no later than September 30, 2017.

(d)    by the Purchasers if the Company shall have breached any of its representations or warranties or failed to perform any of its covenants or agreements set forth in this Agreement, which breach or failure to perform (i) would give rise to the failure of a condition set forth in Section 6.03(a) or Section 6.03(b) and (ii) has not been waived by the Purchasers or is incapable of being cured prior to the Termination Date, or if capable of being cured, shall not have been cured within thirty (30) calendar days (but in no event later than the Termination Date) following receipt by the Company of written notice of such breach or failure to perform from the Purchasers stating the Purchasers’ intention to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 7.01(d) and the basis for such termination; provided that the Purchasers shall not have the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 7.01(d) if the Purchasers are then in material breach of any of their representations, warranties, covenants or agreements hereunder which breach would give rise to the failure of a condition set forth in Section 6.02(a) or Section 6.02(b); or
(e)    by the Company if the Purchasers shall have breached any of its representations or warranties or failed to perform any of its covenants or agreements set forth in this Agreement, which breach or failure to perform (i) would give rise to the failure of a condition set forth in Section 6.02(a) or Section 6.02(b) and (ii) is incapable of being cured prior to the Termination Date, or if capable of being cured, shall not have been cured within thirty (30) calendar days (but in no event later than the Termination Date) following receipt by the Purchasers of written notice of such breach or failure to perform from the Company stating the Company’s intention to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 7.01(e) and the basis for such termination;

42



provided that the Company shall not have the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 7.01(e) if the Company is then in material breach of any of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements hereunder which breach would give rise to the failure of a condition set forth in Section 6.03(a) or Section 6.03(b).
Section 7.02    Effect of Termination. In the event of the termination of this Agreement as provided in Section 7.01, written notice thereof shall be given to the other party, specifying the provision hereof pursuant to which such termination is made, and this Agreement shall forthwith become null and void (other than Section 5.03, this Section 7.02 and Article VIII, all of which shall survive termination of this Agreement and the Confidentiality Agreement (which shall survive in accordance with its terms except as otherwise provided herein)), and there shall be no liability on the part of the Purchasers or the Company or their respective directors, officers and Affiliates in connection with this Agreement, except that no such termination shall relieve any party from liability for damages to another party resulting from a willful and material breach of this Agreement prior to the date of termination or from fraud; provided that, notwithstanding any other provision set forth in this Agreement, except in the case of fraud, the Company shall not have any such liability in excess of the Purchase Price for all of the Acquired Shares and each Purchaser (severally and not jointly) shall not have any liability in excess of the Purchase Price for the Acquired Shares to be purchased by such Purchaser.

43



other party with any of the agreements contained herein applicable to such party or, except as otherwise provided herein, waive any of such party’s conditions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no failure or delay by the Company or the Purchasers in exercising any right hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right hereunder.

Subject to the immediately preceding sentence, this Agreement shall be binding upon, inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable by, the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
Section 8.04    Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts (including by facsimile or electronic mail), each of which shall be deemed to be an original but all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement, and shall become effective when one or more counterparts have been signed by each of the parties hereto and delivered to the other parties hereto.
Section 8.05    Entire Agreement; No Third-Party Beneficiaries; No Recourse. (a) This Agreement, including the Company Disclosure Letter, together with the Confidentiality Agreement, the Registration Rights Agreement and the Certificate of Designations, constitutes the entire agreement, and supersedes all other prior agreements and understandings, both written and oral, among the parties and their Affiliates, or any of them, with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof.
(a)    No provision of this Agreement shall confer upon any Person other than the parties hereto and their permitted assigns any rights or remedies hereunder. This Agreement may only be enforced against, and any claims or causes of action that may be based upon, arise out of or relate to this Agreement, or the negotiation, execution or performance of this Agreement may only be made against the entities that are expressly identified as parties hereto, including entities that become parties hereto after the date hereof or that agree in writing for the benefit of the Company to be bound by the terms of this Agreement applicable to the Purchaser Parties, and no former, current or future equityholders, controlling persons, directors, officers, employees, agents or Affiliates of any party hereto or any former, current or future equityholder, controlling person, director, officer, employee, general or limited partner, member, manager, advisor, agent or Affiliate

44



of any of the foregoing (each, a “Non-Recourse Party”) shall have any liability for any obligations or liabilities of the parties to this Agreement or for any claim (whether in tort, contract or otherwise) based on, in respect of, or by reason of, the transactions contemplated hereby or in respect of any representations made or alleged to be made in connection herewith. Without limiting the rights of any party against the other parties hereto, in no event shall any party or any of its Affiliates seek to enforce this Agreement against, make any claims for breach of this Agreement against, or seek to recover monetary damages from, any Non-Recourse Party.
Section 8.06    Governing Law; Jurisdiction. (a) This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Delaware applicable to contracts executed in and to be performed entirely within that State, regardless of the laws that might otherwise govern under any applicable conflict of Laws principles.
(a)    All Actions arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be heard and determined in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (or, if the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware declines to accept jurisdiction over any Action, any state or federal court within the State of Delaware) and the parties hereto hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts in any such Action and irrevocably waive the defense of an inconvenient forum or lack of jurisdiction to the maintenance of any such Action. The consents to jurisdiction and venue set forth in this Section 8.06 shall not constitute general consents to service of process in the State of Delaware and shall have no effect for any purpose except as provided in this paragraph and shall not be deemed to confer rights on any Person other than the parties hereto. Each party hereto agrees that service of process upon such party in any Action arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be effective if notice is given by overnight courier at the address set forth in Section 8.10 of this Agreement. The parties hereto agree that a final judgment in any such Action shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by applicable Law; provided, however, that nothing in the foregoing shall restrict any party’s rights to seek any post-judgment relief regarding, or any appeal from, a final trial court judgment.
Section 8.07    Specific Enforcement. The parties hereto agree that irreparable damage for which monetary relief, even if available, would not be an adequate remedy, would occur in the event that Sections 5.06 or Section 5.07 are not performed in accordance with their specific terms or are otherwise breached. The Purchasers acknowledge and agree that (a) the Company shall be entitled to seek an injunction or injunctions, specific performance or other equitable relief to prevent breaches of Sections 5.06 and Section 5.07 and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions thereof in the courts described in Section 8.06 without proof of damages or otherwise, this being in addition to any other remedy to which they are entitled under this Agreement and (b) this right of specific enforcement is an integral part of the Transactions and without that right, the Company would not have entered into this Agreement. The Purchasers agree not to assert that a remedy of specific enforcement is unenforceable, invalid, contrary to Law or inequitable for any reason, and agree not to assert that a remedy of monetary damages would provide an adequate remedy or that the parties otherwise have an adequate remedy at law. The Purchasers acknowledge and agree that the Company shall not be required to provide any bond or other security in connection with its pursuit of an

45



injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches of Sections 5.06 or Section 5.07 and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions thereof.
Section 8.08    [Reserved].

EACH PARTY CERTIFIES AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT (A) NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER, (B) IT UNDERSTANDS AND HAS CONSIDERED THE IMPLICATIONS OF SUCH WAIVER, (C) IT MAKES SUCH WAIVER VOLUNTARILY AND (D) IT HAS BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVER AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 8.09.

The Conversion Right may be exercised as to all or any portion of such Holder’s Series A Preferred Stock from time to time; provided that, in each case, the Conversion Right may not be exercised by a Holder in respect of fewer than 25,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock (unless such conversion relates to all shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by such Holder).
(b)    Reservation of Shares. The Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued Common Stock, solely for issuance upon the conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock, such number of shares of Common Stock as shall from time to time



be issuable upon the conversion of all the shares of Series A Preferred Stock then outstanding. Any shares of Common Stock issued upon conversion of Series A Preferred Stock shall be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.
SECTION 7.    Settlement Procedures; Conversion Procedures; Effect of Conversion.
(a)    Settlement Procedures. Upon conversion of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock pursuant to Section 6, the Company shall pay or deliver, as the case may be, to the converting Holder, in respect of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock and Accrued Dividends thereon converted, a Cash Settlement, a Physical Settlement or a Combination Settlement, at its election, as set forth in this Section 7(a).
(i)    If, in respect of any Conversion Date, the Company elects to deliver a notice (a “Settlement Notice”) of the relevant Settlement Method in respect of such Conversion Date, the Company, through the Conversion Agent, shall deliver such Settlement Notice to converting Holders, no later than the close of business on the second Trading Day immediately following the relevant Conversion Date.  If the Company does not elect a Settlement Method for a particular Conversion Date prior to the deadline set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, the Company shall no longer have the right to elect Cash Settlement or Combination Settlement with respect to such Conversion Date and the Company shall be deemed to have elected Physical Settlement in respect of the conversion.  Such Settlement Notice shall specify the relevant Settlement Method and, in the case of an election of Combination Settlement, the relevant Settlement Notice shall indicate the Specified Dollar Amount per share of Series A Preferred Stock.  If the Company delivers a Settlement Notice electing Combination Settlement in respect of its Conversion Right but does not indicate a Specified Dollar Amount per share of Series A Preferred Stock, the Specified Dollar Amount per share of Series A Preferred Stock shall be deemed to be $1,000.
(ii)    The cash, shares of Common Stock or combination of cash and shares of Common Stock in respect of any conversion of shares of Series A Preferred Stock (the “Settlement Amount”) shall be computed as follows:
(A)    if the Company elects (or is deemed to have elected) to settle the conversion by Physical Settlement, the Company shall deliver to the converting Holder in respect of each share of Series A Preferred Stock being converted or redeemed a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the quotient of the Accrued Amount divided by the Conversion Price in effect on the Conversion Date;
 
(B)         if the Company elects to settle the conversion by Cash Settlement, the Company shall pay to the converting Holder in respect of each share of Series A Preferred Stock being converted cash in an amount equal to the sum of the Daily Conversion Values for each of the 40 consecutive Trading Days during the related Observation Period; and
 
(C)        if the Company elects to settle the conversion by Combination Settlement, the Company shall pay or deliver, as the case may be, in respect of each



share of Series A Preferred Stock being converted, a Settlement Amount equal to the sum of the Daily Settlement Amounts for each of the 40 consecutive Trading Days during the related Observation Period.
 
The Daily Settlement Amounts (if applicable) and the Daily Conversion Values (if applicable) shall be determined by the Company promptly following the last day of the Observation Period.  Promptly after such determination of the Daily Settlement Amounts or the Daily Conversion Values, as the case may be, and the amount of cash payable in lieu of delivering any fractional share of Common Stock, the Company shall notify the Conversion Agent of the Daily Settlement Amounts or the Daily Conversion Values, as the case may be, and the amount of cash payable in lieu of delivering fractional shares of Common Stock.  The Conversion Agent shall have no responsibility for any such determination.
(b)    Physical Settlement in Excess of 10%; Cash Settlement Not Permitted. Notwithstanding Section 7(a), if a Physical Settlement would result in the issuance to a Purchaser Party of ten percent (10.0%) or more of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company as of the relevant Conversion Date (after giving effect to such issuance), then, subject to the next sentence, the Company must elect a Cash Settlement, or a Combination Settlement where the Specified Dollar Amount is sufficient to reduce the number of shares of Common Stock below such threshold. However, if, as of the applicable Conversion Date, the Company (i) shall not have sufficient funds legally available under the DGCL to pay in cash any portion of the Settlement Amount that the Company is required to pay in cash pursuant to the previous sentence or (ii) will be in violation of Specified Contract Terms if it pays such portion of the Settlement Amount in cash, the Company shall (x) pay in cash the lesser of (1) the amount legally available for payment under the DGCL and (2) the largest amount that can be used for such settlement not prohibited by Specified Contract Terms (such amount of cash to be allocated pro rata among Holders converting shares of Series A Preferred Stock as of the same Conversion Date) and (y)  pay the remaining amount of the Settlement Amount by delivering shares of Common Stock.
(c)    Payment of Settlement. The Company shall pay or deliver, as the case may be, the Settlement Amount on the third Business Day immediately following the relevant Conversion Date, if the Company elects Physical Settlement, or on the third Business Day immediately following the last Trading Day of the relevant Observation Period, in the case of any other Settlement Method.  If any shares of Common Stock are due upon conversion, the Company shall issue or cause to be issued, the number of whole shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion (and deliver payment of cash in lieu of fractional shares as set out in Section 12(h)) and, to the extent applicable, any cash, securities or other property issuable thereon. Such delivery of shares of Common Stock, securities or other property shall be made, at the option of the Company, in certificated form or by book-entry. Any such certificate or certificates shall be delivered by the Company to the appropriate Holder on a book-entry basis or by mailing certificates evidencing the shares to the Holders at their respective addresses as set forth in the Conversion Notice. If a Holder shall not by written notice designate the name in which shares of Common Stock (and payments of cash in lieu of fractional shares) and, to the extent applicable, cash, securities or other property to be delivered upon conversion of shares of Series A Preferred Stock should be registered or paid, or the manner in which such shares, cash, securities or other property should be delivered, the Company shall be



entitled to register and deliver such shares, securities or other property, and make such payment, in the name of the Holder and in the manner shown on the records of the Company.
(d)    Conversion Procedure. A Holder must do each of the following in order to convert shares of Series A Preferred Stock pursuant to Section 6:
(i)    complete and manually sign the conversion notice provided by the Conversion Agent (the “Conversion Notice”), and deliver such notice to the Conversion Agent at the office of the Conversion Agent and state in writing therein the number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be converted and the name or names (with addresses) in which such Holder wishes the certificate or certificates for any shares of Common Stock to be delivered upon settlement of the Conversion Right to be registered; provided that a Conversion Notice may be conditional on the completion of a Change of Control or other corporate transaction;
(ii)    deliver to the Conversion Agent the certificate or certificates (if any) representing the shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be converted;
(iii)    if required, furnish appropriate endorsements and transfer documents; and
(iv)    if required, pay any stock transfer, documentary, stamp or similar taxes not payable by the Company pursuant to Section 18.
(e)    Effect of Conversion. Effective immediately prior to the close of business on the Conversion Date applicable to any shares of Series A Preferred Stock, Dividends shall no longer accrue or be declared on any such shares of Series A Preferred Stock, and such shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall cease to be outstanding.
(f)    Record Holder of Underlying Securities as of Conversion Date. The Person or Persons in whose name the shares of Common Stock (and, to the extent applicable, cash, securities or other property issuable upon conversion of Series A Preferred Stock) shall be issued upon conversion shall be treated as a stockholder of record as of the close of business on the relevant Conversion Date (if the Company elects to satisfy the related Conversion Right by Physical Settlement) or the last Trading Day of the relevant Observation Period (if the Company elects to satisfy the related Conversion Right by Combination Settlement), as the case may be.
(g)    Status of Converted Shares. Shares of Series A Preferred Stock converted in accordance with this Certificate of Designations, shall return to the status of and constitute authorized but unissued shares of Preferred Stock, without classification as to series until such shares are once more classified as a particular series by the Board pursuant to the provisions of the Charter.
(h)    Partial Conversion. In case any certificate for shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall be surrendered for partial conversion, the Company shall execute and deliver to or upon the written order of the Holder of the certificate so surrendered a new certificate for the shares of Series A Preferred Stock not converted.

(b)    Initial Change of Control Notice. On or before the twentieth (20th) Business Day prior to the date on which the Company anticipates consummating a Change of Control (or, if later, promptly after the Company discovers that a Change of Control may occur), a written notice (a “Change of Control Notice”) shall be sent by or on behalf of the Company to the Holders as they appear in the records of the Company, which notice shall contain the date on which the Change of Control is anticipated to be effected (or, if applicable, the date on which a Schedule TO or other schedule, form or report disclosing a Change of Control was filed). The Change of Control Notice shall include (i) a description of the material terms and conditions of the Change of Control, (ii) the date on which the Change of Control is anticipated to be consummated, (iii) the Change of Control Redemption Price and the calculation thereof, (iv) a description of the payments and other actions required to be made or taken in order to effect the Satisfaction of the Indebtedness Obligations and (v) the instructions a Holder must follow to receive payment.

(d)    Cash Redemption Not Permitted. If the Company (A) shall not have sufficient funds legally available under the DGCL to redeem all outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock or (B) will be in violation of Specified Contract Terms if it redeems outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock, the Company shall (i) redeem, pro rata among the Holders, a number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock with an aggregate Change of Control Redemption Price equal to the lesser of (1) the amount legally available for the redemption of shares of Series A Preferred Stock under the DGCL and (2) the largest amount that can be used for such redemption not prohibited by Specified Contract Terms and (ii) redeem any shares of Series A Preferred Stock not purchased because of the foregoing limitations at the applicable Change of Control Redemption Price as soon as practicable after the Company is able to make such redemption out of assets legally available for the purchase of such share of Series A Preferred Stock and without violation of Specified Contract Terms. The inability of the Company (or its successor) to make a redemption



payment for any reason shall not relieve the Company (or its successor) from its obligation to effect any required purchase when, as and if permitted by applicable law and Specified Contract Terms. If the Company fails to pay the Change of Control Redemption Price in full when due in accordance with this Section 8 in respect of some or all of the shares or Series A Preferred Shares to be redeemed pursuant to this Section 8, the Company will pay Dividends on such shares not repurchased at a Dividend Rate equal to 8.0% per annum, accruing daily from such date until the Change of Control Redemption Price, plus all Accrued Dividends thereon, are paid in full in respect of such shares of Series A Preferred Stock. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a Change of Control occurs at a time when the Company is restricted or prohibited (contractually or otherwise) from redeeming some or all of the Series A Preferred Stock, the Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the requisite consents to remove or obtain an exception or waiver to such restrictions or prohibition. For purposes of clarity, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 8, the payment of the Change of Control Redemption Price may occur only after the Satisfaction of the Indebtedness Obligations occurs.
(e)    Change of Control Agreements.

The inability of the Company (or its successor) to make a redemption payment for any reason shall not relieve the Company (or its successor) from its obligation to effect any required purchase when, as and if permitted by applicable law.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 8.1, no redemption of shares of Series A Preferred Stock pursuant to this Section 8.1 shall occur until after the earlier of (i) the date that is 181 days after the “Maturity Date” under the Credit Agreement or (ii) the date upon which neither a redemption under this Section 8.1 or the existence of the redemption obligation under this Section 8.1 would result in a default or event of default under the Credit Agreement (as amended) or any successor credit facility.
(j)    Termination. In the event the Board determines in good faith, after consultation with more than one prospective lender selected by the Company, that the provisions of this Section 8.1 materially impair or impede the ability of the Company to consummate a debt financing or refinancing or materially and adversely affect the terms thereof, then the Board may deliver a written notice of such determination to the Holders, and from and after the giving of such notice the provisions of this Section 8.1 shall no longer have any force or effect.
SECTION 9.    Redemption at the Option of the Holder.
(a)    Mandatory Redemption; Redemption Price. At any time from and after the Mandatory Redemption Date, each Holder of shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall have the right (the “Redemption Right”) to require the Company to redeem any or all of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock of such Holder outstanding, to the extent not prohibited by law, at a redemption price per share of Series A Preferred Stock, equal to the sum of (i) the Liquidation Preference per share of Series A Preferred Stock to be redeemed plus (ii) the Accrued Dividends with respect to each such share of Series A Preferred Stock as of the applicable Redemption Date (such price, the “Redemption Price”). The Redemption Price shall be paid or delivered, as applicable, in accordance with the settlement procedures set forth in Section 11.
(b)    Exercise of Redemption Right. A Holder must do each of the following in order to exercise its Redemption Right pursuant to this Section 9 no later than 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the date that is 30 days prior to the Redemption Date,
(i)    deliver a manually signed written notice of exercise (a “Notice of Redemption”) to the Company and the Transfer Agent. The Notice of Redemption shall state in writing therein the number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be redeemed and the name or names (with addresses) in which such Holder wishes the certificate or certificates for any shares of Common Stock to be delivered upon settlement of the Redemption Right to be registered.
(ii)    deliver to the Transfer Agent the certificate or certificates (if any) representing the shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be redeemed; and
(iii)    if required, furnish appropriate endorsements and transfer documents.



(c)    Partial Redemption. In case any certificate for shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall be surrendered for partial redemption, the Company shall execute and deliver to or upon the written order of the Holder of the certificate so surrendered a new certificate for the shares of Series A Preferred Stock not redeemed.
(d)    Effect of Redemption. Effective immediately prior to the close of business on the Redemption Date for any shares of Series A Preferred Stock redeemed pursuant to this Section 9, Dividends shall no longer accrue or be declared on any such shares of Series A Preferred Stock, and such shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall cease to be outstanding.
(e)    Status of Redeemed Shares. Shares of Series A Preferred Stock redeemed in accordance with this Section 9, shall return to the status of and constitute authorized but unissued shares of Preferred Stock, without classification as to series until such shares are once more classified as a particular series by the Board pursuant to the provisions of the Charter.
SECTION 10.    Redemption at the Option of the Company.
(a)    Optional Redemption; Redemption Price. At any time after the Optional Redemption Date, if the VWAP per share of Common Stock is greater than 150% of the Conversion Price for at least twenty (20) Trading Days in any period of thirty (30) consecutive Trading Days, the Company may elect to redeem (an “Optional Redemption”) all, but not less than all, of the outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock for the Redemption Price per share of Series A Preferred Stock. The Redemption Price shall be paid or delivered, as applicable, in accordance with the settlement procedures set forth in Section 11.
(b)    Exercise of Optional Redemption. If the Company elects to effect an Optional Redemption, the Company shall, within twenty (20) Business Days following the completion of the applicable thirty (30) day Trading Period referred to in Section 10(a) above, provide notice of Optional Redemption to each Holder (such notice, a “Notice of Optional Redemption”). The Redemption Date selected by the Company shall be no less than ten (10) Business Days and no more than twenty (20) Business Days after the date on which the Company provides the Notice of Optional Redemption to the Holders. The Notice of Optional Redemption shall state the Redemption Date selected by the Company.
(c)    Effect of Redemption. Effective immediately prior to the close of business on the Redemption Date for any shares of Series A Preferred Stock redeemed pursuant to this Section 10, Dividends shall no longer accrue or be declared on any such shares of Series A Preferred Stock, and such shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall cease to be outstanding.
(d)    Status of Redeemed Shares. Shares of Series A Preferred Stock redeemed in accordance with this Section 10, shall return to the status of and constitute authorized but unissued shares of Preferred Stock, without classification as to series until such shares are once more classified as a particular series by the Board pursuant to the provisions of the Charter.



SECTION 11.    Redemption Settlement.
(a)    Settlement Procedures. Upon redemption pursuant to Section 9 or Section 10, the Company shall pay or deliver, as the case may be, to the redeemed Holder in respect of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock and Accrued Dividends thereon redeemed, a Cash Settlement, a Physical Settlement or a Combination Settlement, at its election, as set forth in this Section 11.
(i)    If, in respect of any Redemption Date, the Company elects to deliver a notice (a “Settlement Notice”) of the relevant Settlement Method in respect of such Redemption Date, the Company, through the Conversion Agent, shall deliver such Settlement Notice to redeemed Holders, no later than the close of business on the second Trading Day immediately following the relevant Redemption Date, as applicable.  If the Company does not elect a Settlement Method for a particular Redemption Date prior to the deadline set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, the Company shall no longer have the right to elect Cash Settlement or Combination Settlement with respect to such Redemption Date and the Company shall be deemed to have elected Physical Settlement in respect of the conversion or redemption.  Such Settlement Notice shall specify the relevant Settlement Method and in the case of an election of Combination Settlement, the relevant Settlement Notice shall indicate the Specified Dollar Amount per share of Series A Preferred Stock.  If the Company delivers a Settlement Notice electing Combination Settlement in respect of a redemption but does not indicate a Specified Dollar Amount per share of Series A Preferred Stock, the Specified Dollar Amount per share of Series A Preferred Stock shall be deemed to be $1,000.
(ii)    The cash, shares of Common Stock or combination of cash and shares of Common Stock in respect of any redemption of shares of Series A Preferred Stock (the “Settlement Amount”) shall be computed as follows:
(A)    if the Company elects (or is deemed to have elected) to settle the redemption by Physical Settlement, the Company shall deliver to the redeemed Holder in respect of each share of Series A Preferred Stock being redeemed a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the quotient of the Redemption Price divided by the Daily VWAP during the related Observation Period;
 
(B)         if the Company elects to settle the redemption by Cash Settlement, the Company shall pay to the redeeming Holder in respect of each share of Series A Preferred Stock being redeemed cash in an amount equal to the Redemption Price; and
 
(C)        if the Company elects to settle the redemption by Combination Settlement, the Company shall pay or deliver, as the case may be, in respect of each share of Series A Preferred Stock being redeemed, a Settlement Amount (i) in cash equal to the Specified Dollar Amount and (ii) in shares of Common Stock equal to the quotient of (x) the difference between Redemption Price and the Specified Dollar Amount divided by (y) the Daily VWAP during the related Observation Period.
 



The Redemption Price and the amount of cash payable in lieu of delivering any fractional share of Common Stock shall be determined by the Company and the Company shall notify the Conversion Agent thereof.  The Conversion Agent shall have no responsibility for any such determination.
(b)    Payment of Settlement. The Company shall pay or deliver, as the case may be, the Settlement Amount on the third Business Day immediately following the relevant Conversion Date or Redemption Date, if the Company elects Physical Settlement, or on the third Business Day immediately following the last Trading Day of the relevant Observation Period, in the case of any other Settlement Method.  If any shares of Common Stock are due upon redemption, the Company shall issue or cause to be issued, the number of whole shares of Common Stock issuable upon redemption (and deliver payment of cash in lieu of fractional shares as set out in Section 12(h)) and, to the extent applicable, any cash, securities or other property issuable thereon. Such delivery of shares of Common Stock, securities or other property shall be made, at the option of the Company, in certificated form or by book-entry. Any such certificate or certificates shall be delivered by the Company to the appropriate Holder on a book-entry basis or by mailing certificates evidencing the shares to the Holders at their respective addresses as set forth in the Conversion Notice. If a Holder shall not by written notice designate the name in which shares of Common Stock (and payments of cash in lieu of fractional shares) and, to the extent applicable, cash, securities or other property to be delivered upon redemption of shares of Series A Preferred Stock should be registered or paid, or the manner in which such shares, cash, securities or other property should be delivered, the Company shall be entitled to register and deliver such shares, securities or other property, and make such payment, in the name of the Holder and in the manner shown on the records of the Company.
(c)    Physical Settlement for Common Stock in Excess of 10%; Cash Redemption Not Permitted. Notwithstanding Section 11(a), if a Physical Settlement would result in the issuance to a Purchaser Party of ten percent (10.0%) or more of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company as of the relevant Redemption Date (after giving effect to such issuance) (the “10% Threshold”), then, subject to the next sentence, the Company must elect either (i) a Cash Settlement or (ii) a Combination Settlement that consists of (x) a Specified Dollar Amount of cash and (y) a number of shares of Common Stock of the Company that does not result in the issuance to a Purchaser Party of shares of Common Stock of the Company in excess of the 10% Threshold. However, if, as of the applicable Redemption Date, the Company (A) shall not have sufficient funds legally available under the DGCL to pay the amount of cash required pursuant to the previous sentence (such amount, the “Required Cash Settlement Amount”) or (B) the Company would be violation of Specified Contract Terms if it pays the Required Cash Settlement Amount (or any portion thereof) in cash, then the Company shall, (1) redeem for Common Stock, pro rata among the Holders, a number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock, the maximum number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock that does not result in the issuance to a Purchaser Party of shares of Common Stock of the Company in excess of the 10% Threshold, (2) redeem for an amount of cash, pro rata among the Holders, a number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock, equal to the lesser of (I) the amount legally available for the redemption of shares of Series A Preferred Stock under the DGCL and (II) the largest amount that can be used for such redemption not prohibited by Specified Contract Terms and (3) redeem for cash any shares of Series A Preferred Stock not purchased because of the foregoing limitations as soon as practicable after the Company is able to make such redemption out of assets legally available for the purchase of such share of Series A Preferred Stock and without



violation of Specified Contract Terms. The inability of the Company (or its successor) to make a redemption payment in cash for any reason shall not relieve the Company (or its successor) from its obligation to effect any required purchase when, as and if permitted by applicable law and Specified Contract Terms. If the Company defers the redemption of shares of Series A Preferred Stock in accordance with this Section 11(c), the Company will pay Dividends on such shares not repurchased at a Dividend Rate equal to 10.0% per annum, accruing daily from such date until such shares are redeemed (or converted into Common Stock).
(d)    Record Holder of Underlying Securities as of Redemption Date. The Person or Persons in whose name the shares of Common Stock (and, to the extent applicable, cash, securities or other property issuable upon conversion of Series A Preferred Stock) shall be issued upon redemption shall be treated as a stockholder of record as of the close of business on the relevant Redemption Date (if the Company elects to satisfy the Redemption Right by Physical Settlement) or the last Trading Day of the relevant Observation Period (if the Company elects to satisfy the Redemption Right by Combination Settlement), as the case may be.
SECTION 12.    Anti-Dilution Adjustments.
(a)    Adjustments. The Conversion Rate will be subject to adjustment, without duplication, upon the occurrence of the following events, except that the Company shall not make any adjustment to the Conversion Rate if Holders of the Series A Preferred Stock participate, at the same time and upon the same terms as holders of Common Stock and solely as a result of holding shares of Series A Preferred Stock, in any transaction described in this Section 12(a), without having to convert their Series A Preferred Stock, as if they held a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the Conversion Rate multiplied by the number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by such Holders:
(i)    The issuance of Common Stock as a dividend or distribution to all or substantially all holders of Common Stock, or a subdivision or combination of Common Stock or a reclassification of Common Stock into a greater or lesser number of shares of Common Stock, in which event the Conversion Rate shall be adjusted based on the following formula:
CR1 = CR0 x (OS1 / OS0)
CR0 = the Conversion Rate in effect immediately prior to the close of business on (i) the Record Date for such dividend or distribution, or (ii) the effective date of such subdivision, combination or reclassification
CR1 = the new Conversion Rate in effect immediately after the close of business on (i) the Record Date for such dividend or distribution, or (ii) the effective date of such subdivision, combination or reclassification
OS0 = the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the close of business on (i) the Record Date for such dividend or distribution or (ii) the effective date of such subdivision, combination or reclassification



OS1 = the number of shares of Common Stock that would be outstanding immediately after, and solely as a result of, the completion of such event
Any adjustment made pursuant to this clause (i) shall be effective immediately after the close of business on the Record Date for such dividend or distribution, or the effective date of such subdivision, combination or reclassification. If any such event is announced or declared but does not occur, the Conversion Rate shall be readjusted, effective as of the date the Board announces that such event shall not occur, to the Conversion Rate that would then be in effect if such event had not been declared.
(ii)    The dividend, distribution or other issuance to all or substantially all holders of Common Stock of rights (other than rights, options or warrants distributed in connection with a stockholder rights plan (in which event the provisions of Section 12(a)(vii) shall apply), options or warrants entitling them to subscribe for or purchase shares of Common Stock for a period expiring forty-five (45) days or less from the date of issuance thereof, at a price per share that is less than the Current Market Price as of the Record Date for such issuance, in which event the Conversion Rate will be increased based on the following formula:
CR1 = CR0 x [(OS0+X))] / (OS0+Y)
CR0 = the Conversion Rate in effect immediately prior to the close of business on the Record Date for such dividend, distribution or issuance
CR1 = the new Conversion Rate in effect immediately following the close of business on the Record Date for such dividend, distribution or issuance
OS0 = the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the close of business on the Record Date for such dividend, distribution or issuance
X = the total number of shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to such rights, options or warrants
Y = the number of shares of Common Stock equal to the aggregate price payable to exercise such rights, options or warrants divided by the Current Market Price as of the Record Date for such dividend, distribution or issuance.
For purposes of this clause (ii), in determining whether any rights, options or warrants entitle the holders to purchase the Common Stock at a price per share that is less than the Current Market Price as of the Record Date for such dividend, distribution or issuance, there shall be taken into account any consideration the Company receives for such rights, options or warrants, and any amount payable on exercise thereof, with the value of such consideration, if other than cash, to be the Fair Market Value thereof.
Any adjustment made pursuant to this clause (ii) shall become effective immediately following the close of business on the Record Date for such dividend, distribution or issuance. In



the event that such rights, options or warrants are not so issued, the Conversion Rate shall be readjusted, effective as of the date the Board publicly announces its decision not to issue such rights, options or warrants, to the Conversion Rate that would then be in effect if such dividend, distribution or issuance had not been declared. To the extent that such rights, options or warrants are not exercised prior to their expiration or shares of Common Stock are otherwise not delivered pursuant to such rights, options or warrants upon the exercise of such rights, options or warrants, the Conversion Rate shall be readjusted to the Conversion Rate that would then be in effect had the adjustments made upon the dividend, distribution or issuance of such rights, options or warrants been made on the basis of the delivery of only the number of shares of Common Stock actually delivered.
(iii)    The Company or one or more of its Subsidiaries purchases Common Stock pursuant to a tender offer or exchange offer (other than an exchange offer that constitutes a Distribution Transaction subject to Section 12(a)(v)) by the Company or a Subsidiary of the Company for all or any portion of the Common Stock, or otherwise acquires Common Stock (except in an open market purchase in compliance with Rule 10b-18 promulgated under the Exchange Act or through an “accelerated share repurchase” on customary terms) (a “Covered Repurchase”), if the cash and value of any other consideration included in the payment per share of Common Stock validly tendered, exchanged or otherwise acquired through a Covered Repurchase exceeds the arithmetic average of the VWAP per share of Common Stock for each of the ten (10) consecutive full Trading Days commencing on, and including, the Trading Day next succeeding the last day on which tenders or exchanges may be made pursuant to such tender or exchange offer (as it may be amended) or shares of Common Stock are otherwise acquired through a Covered Repurchase (the “Expiration Date”), in which event the Conversion Rate shall be adjusted based on the following formula:
CR1 = CR0 x [(FMV + (SP1 x OS1))] / (SP1 x OS0)
CR0 = the Conversion Rate in effect immediately prior to the close of business on the Expiration Date
CR1 = the new Conversion Rate in effect immediately after the close of business on the Expiration Date
FMV = the Fair Market Value, on the Expiration Date, of all cash and any other consideration paid or payable for all shares validly tendered or exchanged and not withdrawn, or otherwise acquired through a Covered Repurchase, as of the Expiration Date
OS0 = the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the last time tenders or exchanges may be made pursuant to such tender or exchange offer (including the shares to be purchased in such tender or exchange offer) or shares are otherwise acquired through a Covered Repurchase
OS1 = the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after the last time tenders or exchanges may be made pursuant to such tender or exchange



offer (after giving effect to the purchase of shares in such tender or exchange offer) or shares are otherwise acquired through a Covered Repurchase
SP1 = the arithmetic average of the VWAP per share of Common Stock for each of the ten (10) consecutive full Trading Days commencing on, and including, the Trading Day next succeeding the Expiration Date
Such adjustment shall become effective immediately after the close of business on the Expiration Date. If an adjustment to the Conversion Rate is required under this Section 12(a)(iii), delivery of any additional shares of Common Stock that may be deliverable upon conversion as a result of an adjustment required under this Section 12(a)(iii) shall be delayed to the extent necessary in order to complete the calculations provided for in this Section 12(a)(iii).
In the event that the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is obligated to purchase Common Stock pursuant to any such tender offer, exchange offer or other commitment to acquire shares of Common Stock through a Covered Repurchase but is permanently prevented by applicable law from effecting any such purchases, or all such purchases are rescinded, then the Conversion Rate shall be readjusted to be the Conversion Rate that would have been then in effect if such tender offer, exchange offer or Covered Repurchase had not been made.
(iv)    The Company shall, by dividend or otherwise, distribute to all or substantially all holders of its Common Stock (other than for cash in lieu of fractional shares), shares of any class of its Capital Stock, evidences of its indebtedness, assets, other property or securities, but excluding (A) dividends or distributions referred to in Section 12(a)(i) or Section 12(a)(ii) hereof, (B) Distribution Transactions as to which Section 12(a)(v) shall apply, (C) dividends or distributions paid exclusively in cash as to which Section 12(a)(vi) shall apply and (D) rights, options or warrants distributed in connection with a stockholder rights plan as to which Section 12(a)(vii) shall apply (any of such shares of its Capital Stock, indebtedness, assets or property that are not so excluded are hereinafter called the “Distributed Property”), then, in each such case the Conversion Rate shall be adjusted based on the following formula:
CR1 = CR0 x [SP0 / (SP0 - FMV)]
CR0 = the Conversion Rate in effect immediately prior to the close of business on the Record Date for such dividend or distribution
CR1 = the new Conversion Rate in effect immediately after the close of business on the Record Date for such dividend or distribution
SP0 = the Current Market Price as of the Record Date for such dividend or distribution
FMV = the Fair Market Value of the portion of Distributed Property distributed with respect to each outstanding share of Common Stock on the Record Date for such dividend or distribution; provided that, if FMV is equal or greater than SP0, then in lieu of the foregoing adjustment, the Company shall distribute to each holder of



Series A Preferred Stock on the date the applicable Distributed Property is distributed to holders of Common Stock, but without requiring such holder to convert its shares of Series A Preferred Stock, in respect of each share of Series A Preferred Stock held by such holder, the amount of Distributed Property such holder would have received had such holder owned a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the Conversion Rate on the Record Date for such dividend or distribution
Any adjustment made pursuant to this clause (iv) shall be effective immediately after the close of business on the Record Date for such dividend or distribution. If any such dividend or distribution is declared but does not occur, the Conversion Rate shall be readjusted, effective as of the date the Board announces that such dividend or distribution shall not occur, to the Conversion Rate that would then be in effect if such dividend or distribution had not been declared.
(v)    The Company effects a Distribution Transaction, in which case the Conversion Rate in effect immediately prior to the effective date of the Distribution Transaction shall be adjusted based on the following formula:
CR1 = CR0 x [(FMV + MP0) / MP0]
CR0 = the Conversion Rate in effect immediately prior to the close of business on the effective date of the Distribution Transaction
CR1 = the new Conversion Rate in effect immediately after the close of business on the effective date of the Distribution Transaction
FMV = the arithmetic average of the volume-weighted average prices for a share of the capital stock or other interest distributed to holders of Common Stock on the principal United States securities exchange or automated quotation system on which such capital stock or other interest trades, as reported by Bloomberg (or, if Bloomberg ceases to publish such price, any successor service chosen by the Company) in respect of the period from the open of trading on the relevant Trading Day until the close of trading on such Trading Day (or if such volume-weighted average price is unavailable, the market price of one share of such capital stock or other interest on such Trading Day determined, using a volume-weighted average method, by an Independent Financial Advisor retained for such purpose by the Company), for each of the ten consecutive full Trading Days commencing with, and including, the effective date of the Distribution Transaction
MP0 = the arithmetic average of the VWAP per share of Common Stock for each of the ten (10) consecutive full Trading Days commencing on, and including, the effective date of the Distribution Transaction
Such adjustment shall become effective immediately following the close of business on the effective date of the Distribution Transaction. If an adjustment to the Conversion Rate is required under this Section 12(a)(v), delivery of any additional shares of Common Stock that may be deliverable upon conversion as a result of an adjustment required under this Section 12(a)(v)



shall be delayed to the extent necessary in order to complete the calculations provided for in this Section 12(a)(v).
(vi)    The Company makes a cash dividend or distribution to all or substantially all holders of the Common Stock, the Conversion Rate shall be adjusted based on the following formula:
CR1 = CR0 x [SP0 / (SP0 – C)]
CR0 = the Conversion Rate in effect immediately prior to the close of business on the Record Date for such dividend or distribution
CR1 = the new Conversion Rate in effect immediately after the close of business on the Record Date for such dividend or distribution
SP0 = the Current Market Price as of the Record Date for such dividend or distribution
C = the amount in cash per share of Common Stock the Company distributes to all or substantially all holders of its Common Stock; provided that, if C is equal or greater than SP0, then in lieu of the foregoing adjustment, the Company shall pay to each holder of Series A Preferred Stock on the date the applicable cash dividend or distribution is made to holders of Common Stock, but without requiring such holder to convert its shares of Series A Preferred Stock, in respect of each share of Series A Preferred Stock held by such holder, the amount of cash such holder would have received had such holder owned a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the Conversion Rate on the Record Date for such dividend or distribution
Any adjustment made pursuant to this clause (vi) shall be effective immediately after the close of business on the Record Date for such dividend or distribution. If any dividend or distribution is declared but not paid, the Conversion Rate shall be readjusted, effective as of the date the Board announces that such dividend or distribution will not be paid, to the Conversion Rate that would then be in effect if such had dividend or distribution not been declared.
(vii)    If the Company has a stockholder rights plan in effect with respect to the Common Stock on any Conversion Date, upon conversion of any shares of the Series A Preferred Stock, Holders of such shares will receive, in addition to the applicable number of shares of Common Stock, the rights under such rights plan relating to such Common Stock, unless, prior to such Conversion Date, the rights have (i) become exercisable or (ii) separated from the shares of Common Stock (the first of such events to occur, a “Trigger Event”), in which case, the Conversion Rate will be adjusted, effective automatically at the time of such Trigger Event, as if the Company had made a distribution of such rights to all holders of the Company Common Stock as described in Section 12(a)(ii) (without giving effect to the forty-five (45) day limit on the exercisability of rights, options or warrants ordinarily subject to such Section 12(a)(ii)), subject to appropriate readjustment in the event of the expiration, termination or redemption of such rights prior to the exercise, deemed exercise or exchange thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent any such



stockholder rights are exchanged by the Company for shares of Common Stock or other property or securities, the Conversion Rate shall be appropriately readjusted as if such stockholder rights had not been issued, but the Company had instead issued such shares of Common Stock or other property or securities as a dividend or distribution of shares of Common Stock pursuant to Section 12(a)(i) or Section 12(a)(iv), as applicable.
To the extent that such rights are not exercised prior to their expiration, termination or redemption, the Conversion Rate shall be readjusted to the Conversion Rate that would then be in effect had the adjustments made upon the occurrence of the Trigger Event been made on the basis of the issuance of, and the receipt of the exercise price with respect to, only the number of shares of Common Stock actually issued pursuant to such rights.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 12(a)(vii), no adjustment shall be required to be made to the Conversion Rate with respect to any Holder which is, or is an “affiliate” or “associate” of, an “acquiring person” under such stockholder rights plan or with respect to any direct or indirect transferee of such Holder who receives Series A Preferred Stock in such transfer after the time such Holder becomes, or its affiliate or associate becomes, such an “acquiring person”.
(b)    Calculation of Adjustments. All adjustments to the Conversion Rate shall be calculated by the Company to the nearest 1/10,000th of one share of Common Stock (or if there is not a nearest 1/10,000th of a share, to the next lower 1/10,000th of a share). No adjustment to the Conversion Rate will be required unless such adjustment would require an increase or decrease of at least one percent of the Conversion Rate; provided, however, that any such adjustment that is not required to be made will be carried forward and taken into account in any subsequent adjustment; provided, further that any such adjustment of less than one percent that has not been made will be made upon any Conversion Date.
(c)    When No Adjustment Required. (i) Except as otherwise provided in this Section 12, the Conversion Rate will not be adjusted for the issuance of Common Stock or any securities convertible into or exchangeable for Common Stock or carrying the right to purchase any of the foregoing, or for the repurchase of Common Stock.
(i)    Except as otherwise provided in this Section 12, the Conversion Rate will not be adjusted as a result of the issuance of, the distribution of separate certificates representing, the exercise or redemption of, or the termination or invalidation of, rights pursuant to any stockholder rights plans.
(ii)    No adjustment to the Conversion Rate will be made:
(A)    upon the issuance of any shares of Common Stock pursuant to any present or future plan providing for the reinvestment of dividends or interest payable on securities of the Company and the investment of additional optional amounts in Common Stock under any plan in which purchases are made at market prices on the date or dates of purchase, without discount, and whether or not the Company bears the ordinary costs of administration and operation of the plan, including brokerage commissions;



(B)    upon the issuance of any shares of Common Stock or options or rights to purchase such shares pursuant to any present or future employee, director or consultant benefit plan or program of or assumed by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or of any employee agreements or arrangements or programs;
(C)    upon the issuance of any shares of Common Stock pursuant to any option, warrant, right, or exercisable, exchangeable or convertible security; or
(D)    for a change in the par value of the Common Stock.
(d)    Successive Adjustments. After an adjustment to the Conversion Rate under this Section 12, any subsequent event requiring an adjustment under this Section 12 shall cause an adjustment to each such Conversion Rate as so adjusted.
(e)    Multiple Adjustments. For the avoidance of doubt, if an event occurs that would trigger an adjustment to the Conversion Rate pursuant to this Section 12 under more than one subsection hereof, such event, to the extent fully taken into account in a single adjustment, shall not result in multiple adjustments hereunder; provided, however, that if more than one subsection of this Section 12 is applicable to a single event, the subsection shall be applied that produces the largest adjustment.
(f)    Notice of Adjustments. Whenever the Conversion Rate is adjusted as provided under this Section 12, the Company shall as soon as reasonably practicable following the occurrence of an event that requires such adjustment (or if the Company is not aware of such occurrence, as soon as reasonably practicable after becoming so aware):
(i)    compute the adjusted applicable Conversion Rate in accordance with this Section 12 and prepare and transmit to the Conversion Agent an Officer’s Certificate setting forth the applicable Conversion Rate, the method of calculation thereof, and the facts requiring such adjustment and upon which such adjustment is based; and
(ii)    provide a written notice to the Holders of the occurrence of such event and a statement in reasonable detail setting forth the method by which the adjustment to the applicable Conversion Rate was determined and setting forth the adjusted applicable Conversion Rate.
(g)    Conversion Agent. The Conversion Agent shall not at any time be under any duty or responsibility to any Holder to determine whether any facts exist that may require any adjustment of the Conversion Rate or with respect to the nature or extent or calculation of any such adjustment when made, or with respect to the method employed in making the same. The Conversion Agent shall be fully authorized and protected in relying on any Officer’s Certificate delivered pursuant to this Section 12(g) and any adjustment contained therein and the Conversion Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge of any adjustment unless and until it has received such certificate. The Conversion Agent shall not be accountable with respect to the validity or value (or the kind or amount) of any shares of Common Stock, or of any securities or property, that may at the time be issued or delivered with respect to any Series A Preferred Stock and the Conversion Agent makes



no representation with respect thereto. The Conversion Agent shall not be responsible for any failure of the Company to issue, transfer or deliver any shares of Common Stock pursuant to the conversion of Series A Preferred Stock or to comply with any of the duties, responsibilities or covenants of the Company contained in this Section 12.
(h)    Fractional Shares. The Company shall not issue any fractional share of Common Stock upon conversion or redemption, as the case may be, of shares of Series A Preferred Stock and shall instead pay cash in lieu of delivering any fractional share of Common Stock issuable upon conversion or redemption, as the case may be, based on the Daily VWAP for the relevant Conversion Date (in the case of Physical Settlement) or based on the Daily VWAP for the last Trading Day of the relevant Observation Period (in the case of Combination Settlement). For each share of Series A Preferred Stock surrendered for conversion or redemption, if the Company has elected Combination Settlement, the full number of shares that shall be issued upon conversion thereof shall be computed on the basis of the aggregate Daily Settlement Amounts for the relevant Observation Period and any fractional shares remaining after such computation shall be paid in cash.
SECTION 13.    Adjustment for Reorganization Events.
(a)    Reorganization Events. In the event of:
(i)    any reclassification, statutory exchange, merger, consolidation or other similar business combination of the Company with or into another Person, in each case, pursuant to which at least a majority of the Common Stock (but not the Series A Preferred Stock) is changed or converted into, or exchanged for, cash, securities or other property of the Company or another Person;
(ii)    any sale, transfer, lease or conveyance to another Person of all or a majority of the property and assets of the Company, in each case pursuant to which the Common Stock (but not the Series A Preferred Stock) is converted into cash, securities or other property; or
(iii)    any statutory exchange of securities of the Company with another Person (other than in connection with a merger or acquisition) or reclassification, recapitalization or reorganization of the Common Stock (but not the Series A Preferred Stock) into other securities; (each of which is referred to as a “Reorganization Event”),
then each share of Series A Preferred Stock outstanding immediately prior to such Reorganization Event will, without the consent of the Holders and subject to Section 13(d), remain outstanding but shall become convertible into, out of funds legally available therefor, the number, kind and amount of securities, cash and other property (the “Exchange Property”) (without any interest on such Exchange Property and without any right to dividends or distribution on such Exchange Property which have a record date that is prior to the applicable Conversion Date) that the Holder of such share of Series A Preferred Stock would have received in such Reorganization Event had such Holder converted its shares of Series A Preferred Stock into the applicable number of shares of Common Stock immediately



prior to the effective date of the Reorganization Event using the Conversion Rate applicable immediately prior to the effective date of the Reorganization Event and the Liquidation Preference applicable at the time of such subsequent conversion; provided that the foregoing shall not apply if such Holder is a Person with which the Company consolidated or into which the Company merged or which merged into the Company or to which such sale or transfer was made, as the case may be (any such Person, a “Constituent Person”), or an Affiliate of a Constituent Person, to the extent such Reorganization Event provides for different treatment of Common Stock held by such Persons. If the kind or amount of securities, cash and other property receivable upon such Reorganization Event is not the same for each share of Common Stock held immediately prior to such Reorganization Event by a Person (other than a Constituent Person or an Affiliate thereof), then for the purpose of this Section 13(a), the kind and amount of securities, cash and other property receivable upon conversion following such Reorganization Event will be deemed to be the weighted average of the types and amounts of consideration received by the holders of Common Stock.
(b)    Successive Reorganization Events. The above provisions of this Section 13 shall similarly apply to successive Reorganization Events and the provisions of Section 12 shall apply to any shares of Capital Stock received by the holders of the Common Stock in any such Reorganization Event.
(c)    Reorganization Event Notice. The Company (or any successor) shall, no less than thirty (30) days prior to the anticipated effective date of any Reorganization Event, provide written notice to the Holders of such occurrence of such event and of the kind and amount of the cash, securities or other property that constitutes the Exchange Property. Failure to deliver such notice shall not affect the operation of this Section 13.
(d)    Reorganization Event Agreements. The Company shall not enter into any agreement for a transaction constituting a Reorganization Event unless (i) such agreement provides for or does not interfere with or prevent (as applicable) conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock into the Exchange Property in a manner that is consistent with and gives effect to this Section 13, and (ii) to the extent that the Company is not the surviving corporation in such Reorganization Event or will be dissolved in connection with such Reorganization Event, proper provision shall be made in the agreements governing such Reorganization Event for the conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock into stock of the Person surviving such Reorganization Event or such other continuing entity in such Reorganization Event.
(e)    Change of Control. For sake of clarity, if a Reorganization Event constitutes a Change of Control, then Section 8 shall take precedence over this Section 13.
SECTION 14.    Voting Rights.
(a)    General. Except as provided in Section 14(b) and Section 15, Holders of shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall be entitled to vote as a single class with the holders of the Common Stock and the holders of any other class or series of Capital Stock of the Company then entitled to vote with the Common Stock on all matters submitted to a vote of the holders of Common



Stock (and, if applicable, holders of any other class or series of Capital Stock of the Company).  Each Holder shall be entitled to the number of votes equal to the largest number of whole shares of Common Stock into which all shares of Series A Preferred Stock held of record by such Holder could then be converted pursuant to Section 6 at the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to vote or consent on such matters or, if no such record date is established, at the date such vote or consent is taken or any written consent of stockholders is first executed.  The Holders shall be entitled to notice of any meeting of holders of Common Stock in accordance with the Bylaws of the Company.
(b)    Series A Approval Rights. The vote or consent of the Holders of at least a majority of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock outstanding at such time, voting together as a separate class, given in person or by proxy, either in writing without a meeting or by vote at any meeting called for the purpose, will be necessary for effecting or validating any of the following actions, whether or not such approval is required pursuant to the DGCL:
(i)    any amendment, alteration or repeal (whether by merger, consolidation or otherwise) of any provision of the Charter (including this Certificate of Designations) or Bylaws that would have an adverse effect on the rights, preferences, privileges or voting power of the Series A Preferred Stock or the Holder thereof;
(ii)    any amendment or alteration (whether by merger, consolidation or otherwise) of the Charter or any provision thereof, or any other action to authorize, create or classify, or increase the number of authorized or issued shares of, or any securities convertible into shares of, or reclassify any security into, or issue, any additional Series A Preferred Stock, any Parity Stock or any Senior Stock; or
(iii)    the incurrence of additional indebtedness for borrowed money if, as a result thereof, the Company’s Consolidated Funded Indebtedness would exceed both (i) $700 million and (ii) three (3) times Consolidated EBITDA of the Company for the four quarter period for which financial statements are publicly available ending prior to the incurrence of such indebtedness for borrowed money.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Fall-Away of Purchaser Board Rights has occurred, the Holders of Series A Preferred Stock shall no longer have the right to approve the matters set forth in clauses (ii) or (iii) above. For purposes of this Section 14(b), the filing in accordance with applicable law of a certificate of designations or any similar document setting forth or changing the designations, preferences, conversion or other rights, voting powers, restrictions, limitations as to dividends and other distributions, qualifications or other terms of any class or series of stock of the Company shall be deemed an amendment to the Charter.
(c)    Class Voting.  Each Holder of Series A Preferred Stock will have one vote per share on any matter on which Holders of Series A Preferred Stock are entitled to vote separately as a class, whether at a meeting or by written consent.
(d)    Written Consents.  The Holders of Series A Preferred Stock may take action or consent to any action with respect to such rights without a meeting by delivering a consent in



writing or by electronic transmission of the Holders of the Series A Preferred Stock entitled to cast not less than the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to authorize, take or consent to such action at a meeting of stockholder
SECTION 15.    Election of Directors. Provided that the Fall-Away of Purchaser Board Rights has not occurred, at each annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders the Holders of a majority of the then outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall have the exclusive right, voting separately as a class, to elect the Purchaser Designee to the Board.
SECTION 16.    Transfer Agent, Conversion Agent, Registrar and Paying Agent. The duly appointed Transfer Agent, Conversion Agent, Registrar and paying agent for the Series A Preferred Stock shall be [_______]. The Company may, in its sole discretion, appoint any other Person to serve as Transfer Agent, Conversion Agent, Registrar or paying agent for the Series A Preferred Stock and thereafter may remove or replace such other Person at any time. Upon any such appointment or removal, the Company shall send notice thereof by first class mail, postage prepaid, to the Holders.
SECTION 17.    Replacement Certificates. If physical certificates evidencing the Series A Preferred Stock are issued, the Company shall replace any mutilated certificate at the Holder’s expense upon surrender of that certificate to the Transfer Agent. The Company shall replace certificates that become destroyed, stolen or lost at the Holder’s expense upon delivery to the Company and the Transfer Agent of satisfactory evidence that the certificate has been destroyed, stolen or lost, together with any indemnity that may be required by the Transfer Agent and the Company.
SECTION 18.    Taxes.
(a)    Transfer Taxes. The Company shall pay any and all stock transfer, documentary, stamp and similar taxes that may be payable in respect of any issuance or delivery of shares of Series A Preferred Stock or shares of Common Stock or other securities issued on account of Series A Preferred Stock pursuant hereto or certificates representing such shares or securities. The Company shall not, however, be required to pay any such tax that may be payable in respect of any transfer involved in the issuance or delivery of shares of Series A Preferred Stock, shares of Common Stock or other securities to a beneficial owner other than the beneficial owner of the of Series A Preferred Stock immediately prior to such conversion, and shall not be required to make any such issuance, delivery or payment unless and until the Person otherwise entitled to such issuance, delivery or payment has paid to the Company the amount of any such tax or has established, to the satisfaction of the Company, that such tax has been paid or is not payable.
(b)    Withholding. All payments and distributions (or deemed distributions) on the shares of Series A Preferred Stock (and on the shares of Common Stock received upon their conversion) shall be subject to withholding and backup withholding of taxes to the extent required by law, subject to applicable exemptions, and amounts withheld, if any, shall be treated as received by the Holders.



SECTION 19.    Notices. All notices referred to herein shall be in writing and, unless otherwise specified herein, all notices hereunder shall be deemed to have been given upon the earlier of receipt thereof or three (3) Business Days after the mailing thereof if sent by registered or certified mail (unless first class mail shall be specifically permitted for such notice under the terms of this Certificate of Designations) with postage prepaid, addressed: (i) if to the Company, to its office at Pandora Media, Inc., 2101 Webster Street, Suite 1650, Oakland, CA 94612 (Attention: General Counsel), (ii) if to any Holder, to such Holder at the address of such Holder as listed in the stock record books of the Company (which may include the records of the Transfer Agent) or (iii) to such other address as the Company or any such Holder, as the case may be, shall have designated by notice similarly given.
SECTION 20.    Facts Ascertainable. When the terms of this Certificate of Designations refer to a specific agreement or other document to determine the meaning or operation of a provision hereof, the Secretary of the Company shall maintain a copy of such agreement or document at the principal executive offices of the Company and a copy thereof shall be provided free of charge to any Holder who makes a request therefor. The Secretary of the Company shall also maintain a written record of the Issuance Date, the number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock issued to a Holder and the date of each such issuance, and shall furnish such written record free of charge to any Holder who makes a request therefor.
SECTION 21.    Waiver. Notwithstanding any provision in this Certificate of Designations to the contrary, any provision contained herein and any right of the Holders of Series A Preferred Stock granted hereunder may be waived as to all shares of Series A Preferred Stock (and the Holders thereof) upon the written consent of the Holders of a majority of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock then outstanding.
SECTION 22.    Severability. If any term of the Series A Preferred Stock set forth herein is invalid, unlawful or incapable of being enforced by reason of any rule of law or public policy, all other terms set forth herein which can be given effect without the invalid, unlawful or unenforceable term will, nevertheless, remain in full force and effect, and no term herein set forth will be deemed dependent upon any other such term unless so expressed herein.
SECTION 23.    Transfer Restriction. Shares of Series A Preferred Stock may not be Transferred to Person that is not a United States person within the meaning of Section 7701(a)(30) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, or any successor provision thereof. Any attempted Transfer in violation of this Section 23 shall be null and void ab initio.

REGISTRATION RIGHTS AGREEMENT
This REGISTRATION RIGHTS AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”) is entered into as of [_______], 2017, by and among Pandora Media, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and each of the investors listed on the signature pages hereto (collectively, together with their respective successors and assigns, the “Purchasers” and each, a “Purchaser”). Capitalized terms used but not defined elsewhere herein are defined in Exhibit A. The Purchasers and any other party that may become a party hereto pursuant to Section 4.1 are referred to collectively as the “Investors” and individually each as an “Investor”.
WHEREAS, the Company and the Purchasers are parties to the Investment Agreement, dated as of May 8, 2017 (as amended from time to time, the “Investment Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company is selling to the Purchasers, and the Purchasers are purchasing from the Company, an aggregate of 250,000 shares of the Series A Preferred Stock, which is convertible into shares of Common Stock;
WHEREAS, as a condition to the obligations of the Company and the Purchasers under the Investment Agreement, the Company and the Purchasers are entering into this Agreement for the purpose of granting certain registration and other rights to the Investors.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements contained in this Agreement, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties to this Agreement hereby agree as follows:
ARTICLE I

Resale Shelf Registration
Section 1.1    Resale Shelf Registration Statement. Subject to the other applicable provisions of this Agreement, the Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to prepare and file within 120 days after the date hereof a registration statement covering the sale or distribution from time to time by the Holders, on a delayed or continuous basis pursuant to Rule 415 of the Securities Act, of all of the Registrable Securities on Form S‑3 (except if the Company is not then eligible to register for resale the Registrable Securities on Form S‑3, then such registration shall be on another appropriate form and shall provide for the registration of such Registrable Securities for resale by the Holders in accordance with any reasonable method of distribution elected by the Purchasers) (the “Resale Shelf Registration Statement”) and shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause such Resale Shelf Registration Statement to be declared effective by the SEC as promptly as is reasonably practicable after the filing thereof (it being agreed that the Resale Shelf Registration Statement shall be an automatic shelf registration statement that may become effective upon filing with the SEC pursuant to Rule 462(e) if Rule 462(e) is available to the Company).
Section 1.2    Effectiveness Period. Once declared effective, the Company shall, subject to the other applicable provisions of this Agreement, use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Resale Shelf Registration Statement to be continuously effective and usable until such time as there are no longer any Registrable Securities (the “Effectiveness Period”).






Section 1.3    Subsequent Shelf Registration Statement. If any Shelf Registration Statement ceases to be effective under the Securities Act for any reason at any time during the Effectiveness Period, the Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to as promptly as is reasonably practicable cause such Shelf Registration Statement to again become effective under the Securities Act (including obtaining the prompt withdrawal of any order suspending the effectiveness of such Shelf Registration Statement), and shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to as promptly as is reasonably practicable amend such Shelf Registration Statement in a manner reasonably expected to result in the withdrawal of any order suspending the effectiveness of such Shelf Registration Statement or file an additional registration statement (a “Subsequent Shelf Registration Statement”) for an offering to be made on a delayed or continuous basis pursuant to Rule 415 of the Securities Act registering the resale from time to time by the Holders thereof of all securities that are Registrable Securities as of the time of such filing. If a Subsequent Shelf Registration Statement is filed, the Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to (a) cause such Subsequent Shelf Registration Statement to become effective under the Securities Act as promptly as is reasonably practicable after the filing thereof (it being agreed that the Subsequent Shelf Registration Statement may be an automatic shelf registration statement that shall become effective upon filing with the SEC pursuant to Rule 462(e) if Rule 462(e) is available to the Company) and (b) keep such Subsequent Shelf Registration Statement continuously effective and usable until the end of the Effectiveness Period. Any such Subsequent Shelf Registration Statement shall be a registration statement on Form S‑3 to the extent that the Company is eligible to use such form. Otherwise, such Subsequent Shelf Registration Statement shall be on another appropriate form and shall provide for the registration of such Registrable Securities for resale by the Holders in accordance with any reasonable method of distribution elected by the Purchasers.
Section 1.4    Supplements and Amendments. The Company shall supplement and amend any Shelf Registration Statement if required by the Securities Act or the rules, regulations or instructions applicable to the registration form used by the Company for such Shelf Registration Statement.
Section 1.5    Subsequent Holder Notice. If a Person entitled to the benefits of this Agreement becomes a Holder of Registrable Securities after a Shelf Registration Statement becomes effective under the Securities Act, the Company shall, as promptly as is reasonably practicable following delivery of written notice to the Company of such Person becoming a Holder and requesting for its name to be included as a selling securityholder in the prospectus related to the Shelf Registration Statement (a “Subsequent Holder Notice”):
(a)    if required and permitted by applicable law, file with the SEC a supplement to the related prospectus or a post-effective amendment to the Shelf Registration Statement so that such Holder is named as a selling securityholder in the Shelf Registration Statement and the related prospectus in such a manner as to permit such Holder to deliver a prospectus to purchasers of the Registrable Securities in accordance with applicable law; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to file more than one post-effective amendment or a supplement to the related prospectus for such purpose in any 30-day period;

2



(b)    if, pursuant to Section 1.5(a), the Company shall have filed a post-effective amendment to the Shelf Registration Statement that is not automatically effective, use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause such post-effective amendment to become effective under the Securities Act as promptly as is reasonably practicable; and
(c)    notify such Holder as promptly as is reasonably practicable after the effectiveness under the Securities Act of any post-effective amendment filed pursuant to Section 1.5(a).
Section 1.6    Underwritten Offering.
(a)    Subject to any applicable restrictions on transfer in the Investment Agreement or otherwise, the Purchasers may, after the Resale Shelf Registration Statement becomes effective, deliver a written notice to the Company (the “Underwritten Offering Notice”) specifying that the sale of some or all of the Registrable Securities subject to the Shelf Registration Statement, is intended to be conducted through an underwritten offering (the “Underwritten Offering”); provided, however, that the Holders of Registrable Securities may not, without the Company’s prior written consent, (i) launch an Underwritten Offering the anticipated gross proceeds of which shall be less than $50,000,000 (unless the Holders are proposing to sell all of their remaining Registrable Securities), (ii) launch an Underwritten Offering if the Holders have effected three (3) Underwritten Offerings pursuant to this Section 1.6 or (iii) launch an Underwritten Offering within the period commencing fourteen (14) days prior to and ending two (2) days following the Company’s scheduled earnings release date for any fiscal quarter or year.
(b)    In the event of an Underwritten Offering, the Purchaser or Purchasers providing the Underwritten Offering Notice shall select the managing underwriter(s) to administer the Underwritten Offering; provided that the choice of such managing underwriter(s) shall be subject to the consent of the Company, which is not to be unreasonably withheld. The Company, the Purchasers and the Holders of Registrable Securities participating in an Underwritten Offering will enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form with the managing underwriter or underwriters selected for such offering.
(c)    The Company will not include in any Underwritten Offering pursuant to this Section 1.6 any securities that are not Registrable Securities without the prior written consent of the Purchasers. If the managing underwriter or underwriters advise the Company and the Purchasers in writing that in its or their good faith opinion the number of Registrable Securities (and, if permitted hereunder, other securities requested to be included in such offering) exceeds the number of securities which can be sold in such offering in light of market conditions or is such so as to adversely affect the success of such offering, the Company will include in such offering only such number of securities that can be sold without adversely affecting the marketability of the offering, which securities will be so included in the following order of priority: (i) first, the Registrable Securities of the Holders that have requested to participate in such Underwritten Offering, allocated pro rata among such Holders on the basis of the percentage of the Registrable Securities requested to be included in such offering by such Holders, and (ii) second, any other securities of the Company that have been requested to be so included.

3



Section 1.7    Take-Down Notice. Subject to the other applicable provisions of this Agreement, at any time that any Shelf Registration Statement is effective, if a Purchaser delivers a notice to the Company (a “Take-Down Notice”) stating that it intends to effect a sale or distribution of all or part of its Registrable Securities included by it on any Shelf Registration Statement (a “Shelf Offering”) and stating the number of the Registrable Securities to be included in such Shelf Offering, then the Company shall, subject to the other applicable provisions of this Agreement, amend or supplement the Shelf Registration Statement as may be necessary in order to enable such Registrable Securities to be sold and distributed pursuant to the Shelf Offering.
Section 1.8    Piggyback Registration.
(a)    If the Company proposes to file a registration statement under the Securities Act with respect to an offering of Common Stock or securities convertible into, or exchangeable or exercisable for, Common Stock, whether or not for sale for its own account (other than a registration statement (i) on Form S‑4, Form S‑8 or any successor forms thereto or (ii) filed to effectuate an exchange offer or any employee benefit or dividend reinvestment plan), then the Company shall give prompt written notice of such filing, which notice shall be given, to the extent reasonably practicable, no later than five (5) Business Days prior to the filing date (the “Piggyback Notice”) to the Purchasers on behalf of the Holders of Registrable Securities. The Piggyback Notice shall offer such Holders the opportunity to include (or cause to be included) in such registration statement the number of shares of Registrable Securities as each such Holder may request (each, a “Piggyback Registration Statement”). Subject to Section 1.8(b), the Company shall include in each Piggyback Registration Statement all Registrable Securities with respect to which the Company has received written requests for inclusion therein (each, a “Piggyback Request”) within five (5) Business Days after the date of the Piggyback Notice but in any event not later than one (1) Business Day prior to the filing date of a Piggyback Registration Statement. The Company shall not be required to maintain the effectiveness of a Piggyback Registration Statement beyond the earlier of (x) 180 days after the effective date thereof and (y) consummation of the distribution by the Holders of the Registrable Securities included in such registration statement.
(b)    If any of the securities to be registered pursuant to the registration giving rise to the rights under this Section 1.8 are to be sold in an underwritten offering, the Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the managing underwriter or underwriters of a proposed underwritten offering to permit Holders of Registrable Securities who have timely submitted a Piggyback Request in connection with such offering to include in such offering all Registrable Securities included in each Holder’s Piggyback Request on the same terms and subject to the same conditions as any other shares of capital stock, if any, of the Company included in the offering. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the managing underwriter or underwriters of such underwritten offering advise the Company in writing that in its or their good faith opinion the number of securities exceeds the number of securities which can be sold in such offering in light of market conditions or is such so as to adversely affect the success of such offering, the Company will include in such offering only such number of securities that can be sold without adversely affecting the marketability of the offering, which securities will be so included in the following order of priority: (i) first, the securities proposed to be sold by the Company for its own account and (ii) second, the securities of selling shareholders that have requested to participate in such offering, allocated pro rata among

4



the selling shareholders according to the total amount of securities entitled to be included therein owned by each selling shareholder and its Affiliates (other than the Company)) or in such other proportions as shall mutually be agreed to by such selling shareholders) but in no event shall the amount of securities of the selling Holders included in the offering be reduced below twenty-five percent (25%) of the total amount of securities included in such offering by selling shareholders.
ARTICLE II

(e)    in the event that the Registrable Securities are being offered in an Underwritten Offering, furnish to the Purchasers and to the underwriters of the securities being registered such reasonable number of copies of the registration statement, preliminary prospectus and final prospectus as the Purchasers or such underwriters may reasonably request in order to facilitate the public offering or other disposition of such securities;

5



(f)    as promptly as reasonably practicable notify the Purchasers at any time when a prospectus relating thereto is required to be delivered under the Securities Act or of the Company’s discovery of the occurrence of any event as a result of which the prospectus included in such registration statement, as then in effect, includes an untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading or incomplete in the light of the circumstances then existing, and, subject to Section 2.2, as promptly as is reasonably practicable, prepare and file with the SEC a supplement or post-effective amendment to such registration statement or the related prospectus or any document incorporated therein by reference or file any other required document, and furnish to the Purchasers a reasonable number of copies of a supplement to or an amendment of such prospectus as may be necessary so that, as thereafter delivered to the purchasers of such securities, such prospectus shall not include an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading or incomplete in the light of the circumstances then existing;
(g)    use commercially reasonable efforts to register and qualify (or exempt from such registration or qualification) the securities covered by such registration statement under such other securities or “blue sky” laws of such jurisdictions within the United States as shall be reasonably requested in writing by the Purchasers; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required in connection therewith or as a condition thereto to (i) qualify to do business in any jurisdictions where it would not otherwise be required to qualify but for this subsection or (ii) take any action that would subject it to general service of process in any such jurisdictions;

The Purchasers agree that, upon receipt of any notice from the Company of the happening of any event of the kind described in Section 2.1(f), 2.1(o)(ii) or 2.1(o)(iii), the Purchasers shall discontinue, and shall cause each Holder to discontinue, disposition of any Registrable Securities covered by such registration statement or the related prospectus until receipt of the copies of the supplemented or amended prospectus, which supplement or amendment shall, subject to the other applicable provisions of this Agreement, be prepared and furnished as soon as reasonably practicable, or until the Purchasers are advised in writing by the Company that the use of the applicable prospectus may be resumed, and have received copies of any amended or supplemented prospectus or any additional or supplemental filings which are incorporated, or deemed to be incorporated, by reference in such prospectus (such period during which disposition is discontinued being an “Interruption Period”) and, if requested by the Company, the Holders shall use commercially reasonable efforts to return to the Company all copies then in their possession, of the prospectus covering such Registrable Securities at the time of receipt of such request. As soon as practicable after the Company has determined that the use of the applicable prospectus may be resumed, the Company will notify the Purchasers thereof. In the event the Company invokes an Interruption Period hereunder and in the reasonable discretion of the Company the need for the Company to continue the Interruption Period ceases for any reason, the Company shall, as soon as reasonably practicable, provide written notice to the Purchasers that such Interruption Period is no longer applicable.
Section 2.2    Suspension. (a) The Company shall be entitled, on one (1) occasion in any one-hundred eighty (180) day period, for a period of time not to exceed seventy-five (75) days in the aggregate in any twelve (12) month period, to (x) defer any registration of Registrable Securities and shall have the right not to file and not to cause the effectiveness of any registration covering any Registrable Securities, (y) suspend the use of any prospectus and registration statement covering any Registrable Securities and (z) require the Holders of Registrable Securities to suspend any offerings or sales of Registrable Securities pursuant to a registration statement, if the Company delivers to the Purchasers a certificate signed by an executive officer certifying that such registration and offering would (i) require the Company to make an Adverse Disclosure or (ii) materially interfere with any bona fide material financing, acquisition, disposition or other similar transaction involving the Company or any of its subsidiaries then under consideration. Such certificate shall contain a statement of the reasons for such suspension and an approximation of the anticipated length of such suspension. The Purchasers shall keep the information contained in such certificate confidential subject to the same terms set forth in Section 2.1(m). If the Company defers any

8



registration of Registrable Securities in response to a Underwritten Offering Notice or requires the Purchasers or the Holders to suspend any Underwritten Offering, the Purchasers shall be entitled to withdraw such Underwritten Offering Notice and if they do so, such request shall not be treated for any purpose as the delivery of an Underwritten Offering Notice pursuant to Section 1.6.
Section 2.3    Expenses of Registration. All Registration Expenses incurred in connection with any registration pursuant to Article I shall be borne by the Company. All Selling Expenses relating to securities registered on behalf of the Holders shall be borne by the Holders of the Registrable Securities included in such registration.

The Holder or Holders of Registrable Securities included in any registration shall, and the Purchasers shall cause such Holder or Holders to, furnish to the Company such information regarding such Holder or Holders and their Affiliates, the Registrable Securities held by them and the distribution proposed by such Holder or Holders and their Affiliates as the Company or its representatives may reasonably request and as shall be required in connection with any registration, qualification or compliance referred to in this Agreement. It is understood and agreed that the obligations of the Company under Article I are conditioned on the timely provisions of the foregoing information by such Holder or Holders and, without limitation of the foregoing, will be conditioned on compliance by such Holder or Holders with the following:
(a)    such Holder or Holders will, and will cause their respective Affiliates to, cooperate with the Company in connection with the preparation of the applicable registration statement and prospectus and, for so long as the Company is obligated to keep such registration statement effective, such Holder or Holders will and will cause their respective Affiliates to, provide to the Company, in writing and in a timely manner, for use in such registration statement (and expressly identified in writing as such), all information regarding themselves and their respective Affiliates and such other information as may be required by applicable law to enable the Company to prepare or amend such registration statement, any related prospectus and any other documents related to such offering covering the applicable Registrable Securities owned by such Holder or Holders and to maintain the currency and effectiveness thereof;
(b)    during such time as such Holder or Holders and their respective Affiliates may be engaged in a distribution of the Registrable Securities, such Holder or Holders will, and they will cause their Affiliates to, comply with all laws applicable to such distribution, including Regulation M promulgated under the Exchange Act, and, to the extent required by such laws, will, and will cause their Affiliates to, among other things (i) not engage in any stabilization activity in connection with the securities of the Company in contravention of such laws; (ii) distribute the Registrable Securities acquired by them solely in the manner described in the applicable registration statement and (iii) if required by applicable law, cause to be furnished to each agent or broker-dealer to or through whom such Registrable Securities may be offered, or to the offeree if an offer is made directly by such Holder or Holders or their respective Affiliates, such copies of the applicable prospectus (as amended and supplemented to such date) and documents incorporated by reference therein as may be required by such agent, broker-dealer or offeree;

9



(c)    such Holder or Holders shall, and they shall cause their respective Affiliates to, (i) permit the Company and its representatives to examine such documents and records and will supply in a timely manner any information as they may be reasonably requested to provide in connection with the offering or other distribution of Registrable Securities by such Holder or Holders and (ii) execute, deliver and perform under any agreements and instruments reasonably requested by the Company or its representatives to effectuate such registered offering, including opinions of counsel and questionnaires; and
(d)    on receipt of any notice from the Company of the occurrence of any of the events specified in Section 2.1(f) or clauses (ii) or (iii) of Section 2.1(o), or that otherwise requires the suspension by such Holder or Holders and their respective Affiliates of the offering, sale or distribution of any of the Registrable Securities owned by such Holder or Holders, such Holders shall, and they shall cause their respective Affiliates to, cease offering, selling or distributing the Registrable Securities owned by such Holder or Holders until the offering, sale and distribution of the Registrable Securities owned by such Holder or Holders may recommence in accordance with the terms hereof and applicable law.
Section 2.5    Rule 144 Reporting. With a view to making available the benefits of Rule 144 to the Holders, the Company agrees that, for so long as a Holder owns Registrable Securities, the Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to:
(a)    make and keep public information available, as those terms are understood and defined in Rule 144, at all times after the date of this Agreement; and
(b)    so long as a Holder owns any Restricted Securities, furnish to the Holder upon written request a written statement by the Company as to its compliance with the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act.
Section 3.6    Holdback Agreement. If during the Effectiveness Period, the Company shall file a registration statement (other than in connection with the registration of securities issuable pursuant to an employee stock option, stock purchase or similar plan or pursuant to a merger, exchange offer or a transaction of the type specified in Rule 145(a) under the Securities Act) with respect to an underwritten public offering of Common Stock or securities convertible into, or exchangeable or exercisable for, such securities or otherwise informs the Purchasers that it intends to conduct such an offering utilizing an effective registration statement or pursuant to an underwritten Rule 144A and/or Regulation S offering and provides the Purchasers and each Holder the opportunity to participate in such offering in accordance with and to the extent required by Section 1.8, the Purchasers and each Holder shall, if requested by the managing underwriter or underwriters, enter into a customary “lock-up” agreement relating to the sale, offering or distribution of Registrable Securities, in the form reasonably requested by the managing underwriter or underwriters, covering the period commencing on the date of the prospectus pursuant to which such offering may be made and continuing until 90 days from the date of such prospectus.

ARTICLE III

Indemnification
Section 3.1    Indemnification by Company. To the extent permitted by applicable law, the Company will, with respect to any Registrable Securities covered by a registration statement or prospectus, or as to which registration, qualification or compliance under applicable “blue sky” laws has been effected pursuant to this Agreement, indemnify and hold harmless each Holder, each Holder’s current and former officers, directors, partners, members, managers, shareholders, accountants, attorneys, agents and employees, and each Person controlling such Holder within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act and such Person’s current and former officers, directors, partners, members, managers, shareholders, accountants, attorneys, agents and employees, and each underwriter thereof, if any, and each Person who controls any such underwriter within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act (collectively, the “Company Indemnified Parties”), from and against any and all expenses, claims, losses, damages, costs (including costs of preparation and reasonable attorney’s fees and any legal or other fees or expenses actually incurred by such party in connection with any investigation or proceeding), judgments, fines, penalties, charges, amounts paid in settlement and other liabilities, joint or several, (or actions in respect thereof) (collectively, “Losses”) to the extent arising out of or based on any untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) of a material fact contained in any registration statement, prospectus, preliminary prospectus, offering circular, “issuer free writing prospectus” (as such term is defined in Rule 433 under the Securities Act) or other document, in each case related to such registration statement, or any amendment or supplement thereto, or based on any omission (or alleged omission) to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances in which they were made, not misleading, or any violation by the Company of the Securities Act, the Exchange Act, any state securities law or any rules or regulations thereunder applicable to the Company and (without limiting the preceding portions of this Section 3.1), the Company will reimburse each of the Company Indemnified Parties for any reasonable and documented out-of-pocket legal expenses and any other reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses actually incurred in connection with investigating, defending or, subject to the last sentence of this Section 3.1, settling any such Losses or action, as such expenses are incurred; provided that the Company’s indemnification obligations shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any Losses or action if such settlement is effected without the prior written consent of the Company (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), nor shall the Company be liable to a Holder in any such case for any such Losses or action to the extent that it arises out of or is based upon a violation or alleged violation of any state or federal law (including any claim arising out of or based on any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission in the registration statement or prospectus) which occurs in reliance upon and in conformity with written information regarding such Holder furnished to the Company by such Holder or its authorized representatives expressly for use in connection with such registration by or on behalf of any Holder.
Section 3.2    Indemnification by Holders. To the extent permitted by applicable law, each Holder will, if Registrable Securities held by such Holder are included in the securities as to which registration or qualification or compliance under applicable “blue sky” laws is being

11



effected, indemnify, severally and not jointly with any other Holders of Registrable Securities, the Company, each of its representatives, each Person who controls the Company or such underwriter within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act (collectively, the “Holder Indemnified Parties”), against all Losses (or actions in respect thereof) to the extent arising out of or based on any untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) of a material fact contained in any registration statement, prospectus, preliminary prospectus, offering circular, “issuer free writing prospectus” or other document, in each case related to such registration statement, or any amendment or supplement thereto, or based on any omission (or alleged omission) to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances in which they were made, not misleading, and will reimburse each of the Holder Indemnified Parties for any reasonable and documented out-of-pocket legal expenses and any other reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses actually incurred in connection with investigating, defending or, subject to the last sentence of this Section 3.2, settling any such Losses or action, as such expenses are incurred, in each case to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) or omission (or alleged omission) is made in such registration statement, prospectus, offering circular, “issuer free writing prospectus” or other document in reliance upon and in conformity with written information regarding such Holder furnished to the Company by such Holder or its authorized representatives and stated to be specifically for use therein; provided, however, that in no event shall any indemnity under this Section 3.2 payable by the Purchasers and any Holder exceed an amount equal to the net proceeds received by such Holder in respect of the Registrable Securities sold pursuant to the registration statement. The indemnity agreement contained in this Section 3.2 shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any loss, claim, damage, liability or action if such settlement is effected without the prior written consent of the applicable Holder (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).
Section 3.3    Notification. If any Person shall be entitled to indemnification under this Article III (each, an “Indemnified Party”), such Indemnified Party shall give prompt notice to the party required to provide indemnification (each, an “Indemnifying Party”) of any claim or of the commencement of any proceeding as to which indemnity is sought. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right, exercisable by giving written notice to the Indemnified Party as promptly as reasonably practicable after the receipt of written notice from such Indemnified Party of such claim or proceeding, to assume, at the Indemnifying Party’s expense, the defense of any such claim or litigation, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party and, after notice from the Indemnifying Party to such Indemnified Party of its election to assume the defense thereof, the Indemnifying Party will not (so long as it shall continue to have the right to defend, contest, litigate and settle the matter in question in accordance with this paragraph) be liable to such Indemnified Party hereunder for any legal expenses and other expenses subsequently incurred by such Indemnified Party in connection with the defense thereof; provided, however, that an Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ separate counsel in any such claim or litigation, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such Indemnified Party unless the Indemnifying Party shall have failed within a reasonable period of time to assume such defense and the Indemnified Party is or would reasonably be expected to be materially prejudiced by such delay. The failure of any Indemnified Party to give notice as provided herein shall relieve an Indemnifying Party of its obligations under this Article III only to the extent that the failure to give such notice is materially prejudicial or harmful to such Indemnifying Party’s ability to defend such action. No

12



Indemnifying Party, in the defense of any such claim or litigation, shall, except with the prior written consent of each Indemnified Party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement which (A) does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such Indemnified Party of a release from all liability in respect to such claim or litigation and (B) does not include any statement as to or any admission of fault, culpability or a failure to act by or on behalf of any Indemnified Person. The indemnity agreements contained in this Article III shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any claim, loss, damage, liability or action if such settlement is effected without the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. The indemnification set forth in this Article III shall be in addition to any other indemnification rights or agreements that an Indemnified Party may have. An Indemnifying Party who is not entitled to, or elects not to, assume the defense of a claim will not be obligated to pay the fees and expenses of more than one counsel for all parties indemnified by such Indemnifying Party with respect to such claim, unless in the reasonable judgment of any Indemnified Party a conflict of interest may exist between such Indemnified Party and any other Indemnified Parties with respect to such claim.
Section 3.4    Contribution. If the indemnification provided for in this Article III is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unavailable to an Indemnified Party, other than pursuant to its terms, with respect to any Losses or action referred to therein, then, subject to the limitations contained in this Article III, the Indemnifying Party, in lieu of indemnifying such Indemnified Party hereunder, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Indemnified Party as a result of such Losses or action in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Indemnifying Party, on the one hand, and the Indemnified Party, on the other, in connection with the actions, statements or omissions that resulted in such Losses or action, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative fault of the Indemnifying Party, on the one hand, and the Indemnified Party, on the other hand, shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether any action in question, including any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or omission or alleged omission to state a material fact, has been made (or omitted) by, or relates to information supplied by such Indemnifying Party, on the one hand, or such Indemnified Party, on the other hand, and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent any such action, statement or omission. The Company and the Holders agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 3.4 was determined solely upon pro rata allocation or by any other method of allocation which does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to in the immediately preceding sentence of this Section 3.4. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the amount each Purchaser or any Holder will be obligated to contribute pursuant to this Section 3.4 will be limited to an amount equal to the net proceeds received by such Purchaser or Holder in respect of the Registrable Securities sold pursuant to the registration statement which gives rise to such obligation to contribute. No Person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any Person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.

The parties hereto may, subject to applicable law, (a) extend the time for the performance of any of the obligations or acts of the other party or (b) waive compliance by the other party with any of the agreements contained herein applicable to such party or, except as otherwise provided herein, waive any of such party’s conditions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no failure or delay by the parties hereto in exercising any right hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right hereunder. Any agreement on the part of a party hereto to any such extension or waiver shall be valid only if set forth in an instrument in writing signed on behalf of such party; provided that the Purchasers may execute such waivers on behalf of any Investor.
Section 5.3    Assignment. Except as provided in Section 4.1, neither this Agreement nor any of the rights, interests or obligations hereunder shall be assigned, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, by any of the parties hereto without the prior written consent of the other party hereto; provided, however, that the Purchasers may provide any such consent on behalf of the Investors.

Section 5.6    Governing Law; Jurisdiction.

The consents to jurisdiction and venue set forth in this Section 5.6 shall not constitute general consents to service of process in the State of Delaware and shall have no effect for any purpose except as provided in this paragraph and shall not be deemed to confer rights on any Person other than the parties hereto. Each party hereto agrees that service of process upon such party in any Action arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be effective if notice is given by overnight courier at the address set forth in Section 5.8 of this Agreement. The parties hereto agree that a final judgment in any such Action shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by applicable law; provided, however, that nothing in the foregoing shall restrict any party’s rights to seek any post-judgment relief regarding, or any appeal from, a final trial court judgment.

Pandora Announces $150 Million Investment by KKR

OAKLAND, Calif. - May 8, 2017 - Pandora (NYSE: P) today announced it has entered into an agreement for a $150 million strategic investment from KKR. In connection with the investment, Richard Sarnoff, KKR’s Head of Media & Communications Private Equity investing in the Americas, will join Pandora’s Board of Directors.

"We are happy to be partnering with KKR on this investment," said Naveen Chopra, chief financial officer at Pandora. "A strong balance sheet gives us the ability to accelerate growth investments when appropriate and to compete aggressively in a rapidly changing, complex market."

“We are excited to support the long-term growth of Pandora with this investment,” said Sarnoff. “A true pioneer in digital music, we believe that Pandora is uniquely positioned over the long term given the sheer size of its user base, the quality of its new subscription services and the fact that it has created one of the few scaled streaming media businesses in the US. The launch of Pandora Premium is yet another example of innovation at a company that created the modern-day music recommendation engine. And we believe that the next few years should be transformational for the company."
 
Under the terms of the investment, KKR will purchase an aggregate of $150 million in a new designated Series A convertible preferred stock of Pandora. Pandora will pay dividends to the holders of the preferred stock quarterly at an annualized rate of 7.5% if paid in cash or 8% if paid in kind, at its option. The Series A preferred stock is convertible into common stock, cash or a combination thereof at a conversion price of $13.50 per share. The offering may be upsized to a total of $250 million should the Company determine to issue additional shares. The offering is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approval, and it is not expected to close earlier than June 8, 2017. The Offering is also subject to a customary fiduciary termination right in favor of Pandora. Additional information may be found in the Form 8-K that will be filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission relating to the transaction.

The investment is being made by KKR through its sponsored investment funds.

Centerview Partners LLC and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC are serving as financial advisors to Pandora and Sidley Austin LLP is acting as legal counsel. For KKR, Deloitte served as accounting and tax advisor and Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP is acting as legal counsel.

This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation, or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale is unlawful. The Series A preferred stock and common stock issuable upon conversion thereof have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.

Pandora Announces New Governance Measures And Confirms Ongoing Strategic Review
Pandora (NYSE: P) announced today that, in addition to the Company’s agreement for a $150 million investment in the Company by KKR announced separately, and with the support of its major stockholders, the Company is implementing certain governance changes. James M. P. Feuille and Peter Gotcher will resign from the Board of Directors, and the Board is forming an independent committee, to be chaired by Timothy Leiweke, an independent director, to identify and appoint new directors who will provide additional expertise and leadership as the Company moves forward. In addition, at the upcoming 2017 annual meeting of stockholders, the Board will recommend that its stockholders approve a resolution to declassify the Board and provide for the annual election of directors in the future.
“Having secured a significant financial commitment from KKR to strengthen the Company’s balance sheet, we have positioned the Company to evaluate any potential strategic alternatives, including a sale, in the 30 days before the financing is set to close,” said Mr. Feuille. “I believe the steps we are taking today offer Pandora the ability to consider all opportunities and to set a course for the future. I thank my colleagues and our stockholders for their support, and look forward to following Pandora, whose future I truly believe is exciting.”
In addition, Centerview Partners LLC and Morgan Stanley will continue to advise the Board of Directors regarding its ongoing review of strategic alternatives, although there can be no assurance that any other transaction will be agreed or completed.
Mr. Leiweke added, “The governance measures we have undertaken today have the support of our major stockholders. The Board is squarely focused on maximizing stockholder value as we move ahead.”
