Tittel Successful closing of the Transaction
Tekst
Oslo, 4 November 2016
Reference is made to the stock exchange announcements made on 31 October 2016
regarding CFIUS approval and Transaction closing.

Opera Software ASA ("Opera" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the
transaction between Opera Software ASA and Golden Brick Capital Private Equity
Fund I L.P. (the "Buyer") on the sale and purchase of Opera's consumer business
for $575 million (the "Transaction") has been successfully closed.

"This has been a long process, but we strongly believe the Transaction provides
a great outcome for the consumer business and the remaining parts of Opera. We
see an exciting future for Opera Mediaworks, Apps & Games, Opera TV, Skyfire and
SurfEasy, which are now well-positioned for growth with a strong financial
backbone." says Lars Boilesen, CEO of Opera.
Opera will report 3Q 2016 numbers on 10 November 2016, and will report the
consumer business as discontinued operations. Use of proceeds from the
Transactions will be announced at the 3Q 2016 presentation.
