Target is buying a San Francisco company as one of the moves it announced Monday to shore up two key areas: groceries and delivery.The retailer is buying delivery logistics company Grand Junction for an undisclosed price to help with same-day delivery to in-store shoppers.Grand Junction software connects retailers with about 700 companies that pick up items from stores or distribution centers and take them to customers.Target and Walmart have adjusted their shipping programs as they try to lure online shoppers away from Amazon.Music service Pandora has named Roger Lynch, the head of Dish’s streaming video service, as its CEO as it wrestles with competition from Spotify and other newer music apps.The Oakland company said Monday that Lynch, who starts Sept. 18, is the right leader because he has worked with media companies on new distribution models.The Finland firm is planning an initial public offering as early as next month that could value the maker of the “Angry Birds” mobile games and movie at about $2 billion, said people familiar with the matter.The company could raise about $400 million from a local market listing, the people said, asking not to be identified as the details aren’t public.A listing would test investors’ appetite for entertainment software, a group whose shares have declined an average of 18 percent from their offer prices following IPOs this year.King Digital Entertainment, the creator of “Candy Crush,” was acquired for a 20 percent discount to its IPO price in 2015 amid revenue declines.[...] Netmarble Games Corp., the maker of the “Lineage” and “Stone Age” mobile games — and South Korea’s biggest listing in seven years — has declined 17 percent since its shares started trading in May.
