What do you get when you add 70 million active users of one radio company to 36 million subscribers of another? The biggest audio entertainment in the world. That's what the CEO of Sirius XM says about his company's purchase of Pandora. Sirius XM is a satellite radio company that was formed in 2008 when the Sirius and XM radio services merged. It offers music, news, talk and sports along with a number of personalities for subscribers to listen to and it makes most of it's money from those subscribers. Pandora is a streaming music service that was founded in the year 2000. It makes most of it's money from advertisers.

一家广播公司的7000万名活跃用户加上另一家广播公司的3600万名用户会得到什么?答案是世界上最大的音频娱乐公司。这是Sirius XM公司的首席执行官在谈及公司收购潘多拉公司时所说。Sirius XM是一家卫星广播公司,在2008年由Sirius公司和广播服务商XM合并成立。该公司提供音乐、新闻、访谈、体育以及多种特色节目供用户收听,公司的主要收入来自这些用户。潘多拉公司成立于2000年,是一家流音乐服务商。该公司的主要收入来自广告商。

So why would Sirius want to buy Pandora? Well most of those who subscribe to Sirius listen through their cars. The company wants more listeners in more different places than that and it believes that buying Pandora is the way to get there. Sirius already owned 19 percent of Pandora's stock from a purchase made last year. It's spending $3.5 billion to buy Pandora entirely also through stock. The deal still has to be reviewed by the company's shareholders and by the U.S. government. If it gets the go-ahead, it's expected to be completed early next year.

那为什么Sirius公司要收购潘多拉公司呢?大多数订阅Sirius服务的用户在车上收听节目。该公司希望更多用户能在不同的地方收听节目,他们相信收购潘多拉公司是达到这一目标的方法。Sirius公司去年已经收购了潘多拉公司19%的股份。该公司还将花费35亿美元以全股票形式收购潘多拉。这项交易必须得到公司股东以及美国政府的批准。如果交易获批,预计可在明年初完成收购。
