During week 6 and 7 2019, DNB ASA has purchased 1 492 000 own shares at an average price of NOK 157.91 per share. After this, DNB ASA owns a total of 11 507 000 own shares.
The repurchase of shares is part of the share buy-back programme announced by DNB ASA on 6 June 2018. The buy-back programme comprises up to approximately 24.1 million shares, of which up to approximately 15.9 million shares may 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 2019, so that its current ownership interest of 34.00% will remain unaffected following completion of the buy-back programme.
