Expected payment of dividend

01 May 2013

NORDEN’s ordinary General Meeting will take place on 24 April 2013. The cut-off date for holding NORDEN shares and thus receiving dividend is thus also 24 April 2013. This means that share holders who hold NORDEN shares when NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen A/S closes on the day of the general meeting’s adoption of the Board of Directors’ proposal of dividend will be entitled to receive dividend payment.

In short – shareholders who have purchased shares in NORDEN by close of business of NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen A/S on 24 April 2013 will be entitled to receive dividend payment.

The NORDEN share will be traded ex-dividend from 24 April 2013. Expected payment of dividend will be about 4 bank days after the general meeting i.e. about 1 May 2013.

The Board of Directors proposes a dividend of DKK 3 per share corresponding to a total of USD 22 million. In addition, a share buy-back programme of up to USD 30 million will be carried out. See announcement No 2.
