Item 8.01 of the Original 8-K to the extent that the Share Split
has been effected by way of a share sub-division and to include a
reference to Item 5.03.

Other than as described above, the Original 8-K has not been
updated and the information disclosed therein remains in effect
as of the filing date of the Original 8-K. This Amendment No. 1
does not purport to provide an update or a discussion of any

Item 5.03
Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change
in Fiscal Year
The information set forth below under Item 8.01 is hereby
incorporated by reference into this Item 5.03. As previously
reported in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on
September 23, 2016, shareholders of OpenText approved the
adoption of a special resolution authorizing the amendment to
OpenTexts articles to change the number of Common Shares, whether
issued or unissued, on a 2-for-1 basis, such that each Common
Share will become two Common Shares. The amendment was effected
on December 22, 2016 in connection with the Share Split.
Item 8.01
Other Events
Share Split
On December 21, 2016, OpenText announced that its board of
directors had approved a 2-for-1 share split of the outstanding
common shares of OpenText, to be implemented by way of a share
sub-division, whereby shareholders of record at close of business
on Monday, January 9, 2017 (the Record Date) would receive on
Tuesday, January 24, 2017 (the Payment Date) one Common Share for
each Common Share held as of the Record Date.
The NASDAQ and the Toronto Stock Exchange have determined to
implement due bill trading in connection with the Share Split. A
due bill is an entitlement attached to listed securities
undergoing a material corporation action, such as the Share
Split. In this instance, anyone purchasing a Common Share during
the period commencing at the opening of business two trading days
prior to the Record Date (i.e., Thursday, January 5, 2017) and
ending on the Payment Date (i.e., Tuesday, January 24, 2017),
inclusive (the due bill period), will receive a distributable
right. Any trades that are executed during the due bill period
will be flagged to ensure purchasers receive the entitlement to
the additional Common Share distributable as a result of the
Share Split. The Common Shares will commence trading on an
ex-distribution basis on Wednesday, January 25, 2017. The due
bill redemption date will be Friday, January 27, 2017.
Adjusting for the Share Split, OpenText had 263,000,896 Common
Shares outstanding, and in the Companys upcoming 10-Q filing for
the quarter ending December 31, 2016, all current period and
historical per share data and number of Common Shares will be
presented on a post-Share Split basis.
