NN Group NV: ING completes divestment of NN Group

NN Group announces today that ING Group has agreed to sell 45.7 millionshares
of NN Group at a price of EUR 30.15 per share. NN Group will not receive any
proceeds from the offering. The transaction completes ING's divestment of NN
Group. The shares were offered by way of an accelerated book building
offering to institutional investors. NN Group will release its first quarter
2016 results on 26 May 2016 and is currently in closed period.

Lard Friese, CEO of NN Group: 'Today is a historic moment for NN Group. We
thank ING Group for their partnership and support in our journey to become a
stand-alone company, and we are grateful to our customers, employees,
business partners and shareholders for their ongoing commitment. In the years
to come, we will continue to focus on the evolving needs of our customers, in
our aim to build a company that truly matters to our stakeholders.'

The transaction is in line with ING's previously announced intention to divest
its remaining stake in NN Group ultimately by the end of 2016, and its
strategy to divest all of its insurance and investment management businesses
as part of the EC restructuring agreement. In this context, ING Group sold
shares of NN Group through an initial public offering in July 2014 and
follow-on offerings in February 2015, May 2015, September 2015 and January
2016.

ING Group will continue to hold warrants that are exercisable for
approximately 35 million ordinary shares of NN Group as specified in the
warrant agreement dated 10 June 2014.
