Please also take into account the release from May22nd, below is a transcript of the CEO comments within the call in which he outlines the BEAT and also RAISES guidance
"Let me now get into the quarter and guidance and then we will open it up for questions. Opera had a record revenue quarter reaching $51.3 million, up 30% versus the year ago quarter. Search revenue represented 40% of the total or $20.6 million, up 2% year-over-year or up 5% on a constant currency basis. As communicated over the past year, while we expect Search to continue to grow, we expect it to become the smaller share of our revenue over time. Search is already a pretty well optimized revenue source for us with the revenue as a function of our search partners monetization as well as our own browser user base footprint.
Advertising revenue was 29% of the total or $14.1 million, up 10% year-over-year. This growth was driven by increased user numbers as we have been prioritizing user growth over monetization."
Fin-tech revenue, which is a new revenue category, represented 13% of total revenue or $6.5 million. This scaled significantly from the fourth quarter when we acquired OKash and we expect it to be a growing percentage of revenue going forward. Retail revenue represented 13% of total or $6.8 million, in other words, quite stable versus last quarter.
With that said, we are raising our expectation for 2019 revenue. Our increased range is $230 million to $240 million representing year-over-year growth of 34% to 39%. This compares to our prior range of $220 million to $230 million, and for now reflects moderate increases in monetization, limited gains from browser product initiatives, and finally some contribution from taking micro lending to new markets. We are also guiding for adjusted EBITDA between $30 million to $45 million for the year."
