The agreement on capital increase in DONG Energy has been approved by the Danish Parliament’s Finance Committee

Today, the Danish Parliament's Finance Committee approved the agreement on capital investment in DONG Energy of approx DKK 13 billion. The investment comes partly from new investors, ATP, PFA, and Goldman Sachs, and partly from existing minority shareholders, SEAS-NVE, SYD ENERGI, Insero Horsens and Nyfors Entreprise. All the regulatory approvals necessary to implementing this agreement are thus ensured.

Implementation of the agreement is now only subject to standard terms and conditions which must be fulfilled on the date of the implementation of the agreement. It is expected that the agreement can be implemented in connection with an extraordinary general meeting expected to be held in February 2014.

The content of this company announcement does not affect DONG Energy’s previously announced expectations to the financial result for the financial year 2013 or the expected investment level for 2013-2014.
