Welcome to Nordea's Annual General Meeting on 14 March 2013

| 01-02-2013 14:00

The Board of Directors of Nordea Bank AB (publ) summons shareholders to the Annual General Meeting on Thursday 14 March 2013 at 13.00 in Aula Magna, Stockholm University in Stockholm according to the attached notice.

The notice includes the Nomination Committee's proposals concerning members of the board and remuneration to board members, the Board of Directors' proposed mandates to repurchase own shares and issue convertible instruments, and a proposal for guidelines for remuneration to the executive officers. The guidelines introduce a new incentive scheme for executive officers which will replace Nordea's previous incentive schemes: variable remuneration and the long-term incentive programme.

This change is carried out to simplify and obtain a better overview of the schemes as well as to reduce the complexity inherent in new regulations. The aim with the new scheme is to provide incentives similar to the two previous schemes without changing remuneration levels for participants or the cost level for Nordea.

The notice is published in Post- och Inrikes Tidningar and at www.nordea.com.

An announcement that notice has been given will be published in Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagbladet on 7 February 2013.
