DSM initiates second phase of share buy-back program


Royal DSM N.V., the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company headquartered in the Netherlands, announces that the company will today, 5 May 2008, start the second phase of the share buy-back program of EUR 750 million announced on 27 September 2007.

DSM has signed a Discretionary Management Agreement with the bank that will execute the share buy-back. DSM intends to repurchase shares for a total consideration of approximately EUR 250 million. The repurchase price will be based on the daily VWAP (Value Weighted Average Price). Daily volumes to be repurchased will be around 10% of the daily trading volume.
