Danske Bank has decided to issue notes linked to the Dow Jones EURO STOXX 50® (ISIN DK0030102280). The notes are designated “Danske Dow Jones EURO STOXX 50® Shark Fin – 2009”.
The subscription period runs from May 19 to 30, 2008 (both days included).
The notes are zero-coupon notes denominated in Danish kroner.
The notes will be issued at par and redeemed at maturity at a price reflecting the trend in the underlying equity index.

The indicative barrier level is 130% of the initial value of the underlying equity index. The final level will be fixed on June 4, 2008, at the latest on the basis of market conditions.

If the barrier level cannot be fixed at a value corresponding to at least 123% of the initial value of the underlying equity index, the issuance will be cancelled. If the total subscription amount is smaller than DKr25,000,000, the issuer reserves the right to cancel the issuance.
