The decrease in the holding of own shares is attributable mainly to a reduction of the share capital by cancellation of 46,885,113 own shares as described in detail in company announcement No. 23 of 25 April 2017. The shares now cancelled were acquired under the buy-back programme launched by Danske Bank on 4 February 2016 and closed on 1 February 2017.
