NN Group NV: ING reduces stake in NN Group to 25.8%

NN Group repurchases shares from ING for an aggregate amount of EUR 150
million

NN Group announces today that ING Group has agreed to sell 40 million shares
of NN Group at a price of EUR 25.00 per share. The transaction reduces ING
Group's stake in NN Group from 37.1% to 25.8% of outstanding shares (net of
treasury shares). NN Group will not receive any proceeds from the offering.

The shares were offered by way of an accelerated book building offering to
institutional investors. As part of this transaction, NN Group repurchased
6.0 million ordinary shares from ING Group at EUR 25.00 per share for a total
amount of EUR 150 million.

NN Group will fund the share repurchase from the cash capital position at the
holding company. The impact on the solvency ratios of NN Group is expected to
be immaterial. NN Group intends to cancel all or part of the repurchased
shares in due course.

As of the settlement of the transaction, the remaining shares in NN Group held
by ING Group will be subject to a lock-up period of 90 days (subject to
certain customary exceptions). The transaction is expected to settle on 5
October 2015.

ING has previously announced that it intends to divest its remaining stake in
NN Group over time, in line with its strategy to divest all of its insurance
and investment management businesses as part of the aforementioned agreement,
ultimately by the end of 2016. 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 and May 2015.

As announced on 25 August 2015, the Supervisory Board of NN Group has
nominated Hélène Vletter-van Dort, Dick Harryvan and Robert Jenkins as new
members of NN Group's Supervisory Board. Members of the Supervisory Board are
appointed by NN Group's shareholders. For this purpose, an Extraordinary
General Meeting of Shareholders (EGM) will be held on 6 October 2015. As ING
Group's shareholding will drop below 35% following settlement of this
transaction, ING nominee Ralph Hamers will step down from the Supervisory
Board of NN Group with the appointment of Hélène Vletter-van Dort at the EGM.
The appointments of Dick Harryvan and Robert Jenkins will become effective
when ING Group's shareholding in NN Group drops below 15%.
