DNB ASA has on 17 July 2017 purchased 229,000 own shares at
an average price of NOK 150.9377 per share. After this, DNB
ASA owns a total of 1,092,000 own shares.
The repurchase of shares is part of the share buy-back
programme announced by DNB ASA on 12 July 2017. The buy-back
programme comprises up to approximately 8.1 million shares,
of which up to approximately 5.4 million will be repurchased
in the open market. The rest will be redeemed from the state
of Norway on a proportionate basis, subject to approval from
DNB ASA's annual general meeting in 2018, so that its
current ownership interest of 34.00% will remain unaffected
following completion of the buy-back programme.
For further information about the share buy-back programme,
DNB ASA refers to the Oslo Stock Exchange notification made
on 12 July 2017 (available from www.newsweb.no).
