Change of the distribution of shares in Swedbank due to conversion of preference shares to ordinary shares

Tuesday, 04 September 2012
The allocation of shares in Swedbank AB (”Swedbank”) has changed due to owners of preference shares having requested during the month of August, 2012 conversion of an aggregate of 8,266,802 preference shares into ordinary shares pursuant to the conversion clause set forth in Swedbank’s articles of association.

After the conversion, the number of ordinary shares in Swedbank amounts to 950,883,765 and the number of preference shares amounts to 181,121,957. The total number of shares is unchanged and amounts to 1,132,005,722. The conversion has been filed for registration with the Swedish Companies Registration Office and is expected to be finalized by registration with Euroclear Sweden AB around September 6, 2012.
Owners of preference shares are, for the last time, during February 2013 entitled to request that such shareholder’s entire holding of preference shares are converted into ordinary shares. All remaining preference shares will be subject to mandatory conversion into ordinary shares during 2013.

As of September 3, 2012 Swedbank held repurchased shares amounting to 33,000,000 ordinary shares in order to hedge the banks commitments relating to performance and share based remuneration programs for 2010, 2011 and 2012. In addition, there may be holdings of own shares within the securities operations.
