Press Release
DONG Energy name change to Ørsted now in effect

At the extraordinary general meeting today, it was decided to change the company's name from DONG Energy A/S to Ørsted A/S.

Thomas Thune Andersen, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Ørsted, says:

"I'm delighted that the shareholders clearly supported changing the company's name to Ørsted. The reason for the name change is that after the comprehensive strategic transformation from black to green energy, our old name no longer matched the company. Ørsted is a signal of our Danish roots – and our vision of creating a world that runs entirely on green energy. The new name has already been well received in Denmark and abroad."

As a result of the name change, the company's ticker symbol is changing to Orsted. The change will take effect at the start of trading on 31 October 2017.
