NN Group NV: NN Group announces stock fraction for 2016 interim dividend and repurchase of shares to neutralise stock dividend

As NN Groupannouncedon 18 August 2016, its shareholders were given the option to receive a 2016 interim dividend of EUR 0.60 per ordinary share either in cash or in ordinary shares.
Shareholders who have elected to receive the interim dividend in shares will
receive one NN Group N.V. ordinary share for every 44.51 ordinary shares
held. The stock fraction is based on the volume-weighted average price of EUR
26.704 for NN Group shares on Euronext Amsterdam for the five trading days
from 30 August up to and including 5 September 2016. Any remaining stock
fractions will be paid in cash. The stock and cash dividend are approximately
equal in value. For shareholders that have not made a choice during the
election period, the dividend will be paid in cash.

Approximately 42.3% of shareholders have elected to receive the interim
dividend in ordinary shares. Consequently, 3,086,014 new ordinary shares will
be issued as stock dividend.

NN Group will neutralise the dilutive effect of the stock dividend through the
repurchase of ordinary shares for a total amount of EUR 82 million,
equivalent to the value of the stock dividend. This share buyback will be in
addition to the open market share buyback programme for an amount of up to
EUR 500 million which was announced on 26 May 2016 and the repurchase of
shares for an amount of EUR 156 million to neutralise the dilutive effect of
the stock dividend related to the 2015 final dividend. These share buybacks
will be executed under the programme by financial intermediaries by 31 May
2017. The shares will be repurchased at a price that does not exceed the last
independent trade or the highest current independent bid on Euronext
Amsterdam. The share buyback programme is being executed within the
limitations of the existing authority granted by the General Meeting on 2
June 2016 and is being performed in compliance with the safe harbour
provisions for share buybacks. NN Group intends to cancel all of the
repurchased shares acquired under the programme.

Payment of the dividend in cash, after deduction of statutory withholding tax
if applicable, and the transfer of the new ordinary shares and settlement of
fractions in cash will take place on 9 September 2016. For further
