ING Group: ING to sell 40 million shares in NN Group

NOT FOR PUBLICATION, RELEASE OR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR
INTO THE UNITED STATES,

AUSTRALIA, CANADA, JAPAN OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH IT WOULD BE
UNLAWFUL TO DO SO.

ING announced today its intention to sell 40 million ordinary shares in NN
Group. The ordinary shares will be sold by way of an accelerated book
building offering to institutional investors. As part of the transaction, NN
Group has stated its intention to repurchase NN Group ordinary shares from
ING Group for an aggregate amount of EUR 150 million. Following a successful
completion of the transaction, ING Group's stake in NN Group's outstanding
capital is expected to decrease to approximately 25.8% from its current
37.1%.

The offer price and the final number of shares sold will be determined at the
conclusion of the book building process and will be announced in a separate
press release. The book is open with immediate effect and is expected to
close ultimately by 17:30 CET on 1 October 2015, although ING Group reserves
the right to close the book before then at short notice. The transaction is
expected to settle on 5 October 2015. As of the settlement date of the
offering, the remaining shares in NN Group held by ING Group will be subject
to a lock-up period of 90 days (subject to certain exceptions including a
sale to the investor group who invested in NN Group prior to its initial
public offering in accordance with ING Group's announcement of 30 April 2014
and the right of the joint global coordinators of the offering to waive the
lock up restrictions).

BofA Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank, ING Bank and Morgan Stanley, are acting as
Joint Global Coordinators for the offering.
