Dampskibsselskabet NORDEN A/S

Statement of leading employees’ transactions in NORDEN shares and related securities

In connection with the employment of Asger Lauritsen as Senior Vice President and head of the Technical Department, he has been granted 14,000 share options. Each share option entitles the recipient to acquire one NORDEN share with a nominal value of DKK 1. The share options may be exercised in the period from 1 May 2017 to 1 May 2020.

The exercise price of the options is determined as the five-day average of the market price as of 1 May 2014, less all dividend payments after 1 May 2014 plus an addition of 10%.

According to section 28A of the Danish Securities Trading Act, the Company shall report the following information about the transactions of leading employees in the Company’s shares and related securities: 

Name: Asger Lauritsen
Occasion: Reporting duty, Senior Vice President
Issuer: Dampskibsselskabet NORDEN A/S
ISIN code: DK0010269844

Market: NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen A/S
Number: 14,000

The theoretical Black-Scholes value of each option is DKK 26.48 based on the exercise price determined as the five-day average of the market price (all transactions) as of 1 May 2014.
