Aegon to repurchase 13.6 million common shares


Aegon N.V. announces that, with reference to its press release dated September 7, 2007, it will repurchase 13.6 million common shares. The purpose of this repurchase is to neutralize the dilution effect of the 2007 interim dividend paid in shares and is expected to be completed before December 31, 2007. This repurchase is in addition to the Group’s EUR 1 billion already completed share repurchase program.

Aegon will seek approval from its shareholders at the next Annual General Meeting on April 23, 2008 to cancel all common shares repurchased as part of this program.
