SAN DIEGO & OSLO, Norway--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 27, 2020--

Opera Limited (OPRA) Accused of Misleading Investors in IPO

According to the complaint, Opera Limited completed its IPO on August 9, 2018, offering 9.6 million American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) at $12.00 per ADS and raising approximately $115.2 million in proceeds. At the time of its IPO and throughout the relevant period, Opera touted its sustainable growth and market opportunity for its browser applications; however, these numbers were materially overstated and the Company failed to disclose that it controlled loan service applications on the Google Play Store marketplace that relied on predatory lending practices. Then on January 16, 2020, Hindenburg Research published a report that had a “12-month price target of $2.60 on Opera, representing a 70% downside,” citing the rapid decline of Opera’s market share since its IPO and the Company’s involvement in predatory short-term loan tactics that were in “black and white violation of numerous Google rules.” On this news, Opera’s ADS price fell $1.69 per share, or almost 19% to close at $7.33 and continues to trade below Opera’s IPO price.
