The repurchase of shares is part of the new share buy-back programme announced by DNB ASA on 1 February 2018. The buy-back programme comprises up to approximately 8.1 millon 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 ownership interest of 34.00% will remain unaffected following completion of the buy-back programme.
