Since 2005, DnB NOR Bank ASA (DnB NOR) and Norddeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale (NORD/LB) have owned 51 per cent and 49 per cent, respectively, of Bank DnB NORD A/S. Bank DnB NORD A/S has subsidiary banks in Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. Today DnB NOR have decided to take over the whole Baltic bank.

“In a statement to Oslo Børs on 14 July 2010, it was announced that DnB NOR, pursuant to the shareholder agreement, had notified NORD/LB that the bank reserved the right to exercise its option to acquire NORD/LB’s 49 per cent ownership interest in Bank DnB NORD A/S,” DnB NOR says in a short market statement.

“In a statement to NORD/LB today, DnB NOR has exercised its option to acquire NORD/LB’s ownership interest in Bank DnB NORD A/S.”

“If the parties do not reach agreement on price, this must be determined in accordance with an agreed arbitration mechanism.”
