"Our marketplace will continue to operate here - uninterrupted - as it has since 2010, and we remain committed to the many people here who use our platform to buy and sell every month. We continue to be focused on constantly innovating to make sure that OLX remains the top classifieds platform in the country."

"Of course, we are committed to helping our affected colleagues during this transition and have already offered them meaningful financial and other support. As we've expressed to them directly, we are extremely grateful for their many significant contributions to OLX's success," the statement added.
