Opera (OPRA) Securities Class Action:

According to the Complaint, Defendants misled investors by misrepresenting and failing to disclose that (1) Opera's sustainable growth and market opportunity for its browser apps were significantly overstated and (2) Defendants' funded, owned, or otherwise controlled loan services apps and businesses relied on predatory lending practices, and (3) all the foregoing, once revealed, were reasonably likely to have a material negative impact on Opera's financial prospects, especially with respect to its lending apps' continued availability on the Google Play Store.

The market learned the truth on Jan. 16, 2020, when Hindenburg Research published a scathing report about the Company, accusing Opera of engaging in predatory short-term loans in Africa and India, deploying deceptive "bait and switch" tactics to lure borrowers, and charging egregious interest rates ranging from about 365% - 876%.  According to the report, Opera's apps are now "in black and white violation of numerous Google rules," and therefore "this entire line of business is at risk of disappearing or being severely curtailed."

In addition, the Report accused Opera's chairman and CEO, Yahui Zhou of diverting $40 million of Company proceeds to entities owned or influenced by Zhou through a slew of questionable related-party transactions that were not adequately disclosed to investors.

In response, the price of Opera ADSs fell sharply on Jan. 16, 2020.  Opera ADSs now trade sharply below Opera's IPO and secondary offering prices.

"We're focused on investors' losses and proving Opera concealed the risks posed by its short term loan business and questionable related-party deals," said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
