The decrease in the holding of own shares is attributable mainly to a reduction of the share capital by cancellation of 40,874,101 own shares as described in detail in company announcement No. 26 of 18 April 2018. The shares now cancelled were acquired under the buy-back programme launched by Danske Bank on 2 February 2017 and closed on 31 January 2018.
