This week Pandora reported slowing growth and a deteriorating balance sheet, but was buoyed by a $150 million investment from KKR.

At the same time, the company is aggressively seeking to sell within the next 30 days, according to CNBC.

"If Pandora sells itself within that 30 days, it would have to pay KKR $15 million," sources tell CNBC.  "But sources said the company views that money as an insurance policy of sorts that effectively gives the company a 30-day option to sell itself — which it thinks it can do."
