Comment to media coverage of civil claims

On the basis of today’s media coverage for civil lawsuits against Danske Bank, we refer to our disclosure of contingent liabilities in our Annual Report for 2020.

The sum of claims amounted to DKK 12.4 billion by the end of 2020. We will update any potential development on a quarterly basis, however, the sum of claims does not deviate materially from already disclosed numbers.

The contingent liabilities related to civil shareholder claims and related amount described in today’s media coverage is part of the disclosure in our Annual Report for 2020.

Danske Bank intends to defend itself against these claims. The timing of completion of any such lawsuits and their outcome are uncertain.
