(Newser) – This is getting to be one pricey box to open: Pandora has jacked the price of its hotly anticipated IPO to $161.5 million, reports the New York Post, up from a slightly more modest $109.5 million last week and $100 million in February. The stock market may be tanking, but the Internet radio company is betting it can still cash in on investor thirst for tech IPOs, a la the frenzy that surrounded LinkedIn last month. Pandora's $161.5 million pricetag would value an offering of 14.7 million shares at $10 to $12 apiece. (Read more Pandora stories.)
