Opera Announces $50 Million Share Repurchase Program

Opera Limited, a global web innovator with an engaged and growing base of hundreds of millions of monthly active users who seek a better internet experience, today announced that its board of directors has approved a share repurchase program (the “Program”), which authorizes the Company’s management to execute the repurchase of up to US$50 million of its American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”), each representing two ordinary shares, by March 31, 2024.

Mr. Yahui Zhou, the Company’s CEO, stated: “We believe that the share price and market value of Opera are currently significantly undervalued in light of our solid trajectory and outlook. In addition, Opera holds three minority investments in private companies that represent additional unrealized value to our shareholders. Given our strong cash position, we believe repurchasing Opera stock offers a compelling ROI opportunity, and an opportunity for us to create value for our shareholders.”

The Company’s management intends to launch the repurchases in the next trading window which is expected to take place in February 2022, and the proposed purchases will be made from time to time in an opportunistic manner and depending on market conditions. The Company plans to fund repurchases from its existing cash balance.

Under the Program, the Company may repurchase its ADSs from time to time on the open market at prevailing market prices, in privately negotiated transactions, in block trades and/or through other legally permissible means. The Company may effect repurchase transactions in compliance with Rule 10b5-1 and Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

Any repurchases pursuant to the Program will be made at management’s discretion at prices considered to be attractive and in the best interests of both the Company and its shareholders, subject to a number of factors, including, but not limited to, price and trading volume of the ADSs, general market conditions, applicable securities laws and the Company’s financial performance. The Program will be reviewed by the board of directors and may be suspended, terminated, or modified at any time for any reason, including market conditions, the cost of repurchasing shares, the availability of alternative investment opportunities, liquidity, and other factors deemed appropriate. These factors may also affect the timing and amount of share repurchases. The Program does not obligate the Company to repurchase any of its ADSs.
