Today ABN AMRO Group N.V. exercised the call option to repurchase EUR 210 million preference shares held by ABN AMRO Preferred Investments B.V. in accordance with the announcement made on 1 March 2013. The transaction was settled today. It is the intention of ABN AMRO Group N.V. to cancel the repurchased shares.
These class A non-cumulative preference shares were already excluded from the regulatory capital position. The exercise of the call therefore has no impact on the capital ratios reported per 31 December 2012.
The repurchase of the preference shares results in a simplification of the shareholder structure of ABN AMRO Group N.V. As of today, NLFI is the sole shareholder by holding all ordinary shares.
