AEGON N : Aegon to repurchase shares to neutralize impact of 2020 final stock dividend and share-based variable compensation plans

The Hague - July 7, 2021

Aegon to repurchase shares to neutralize impact of 2020 final stock dividend and share-based variable compensation plans

Aegon announced today that it will repurchase common shares for an amount of EUR 133 million to neutralize the dilutive effect of both its 2020 final stock dividend and certain share-based variable compensation plans for senior management.

Shareholders were given the opportunity to choose between receiving the 2020 final dividend of EUR 0.06 per common share in cash or in stock. 58% of shareholders elected to receive the final dividend in stock. To neutralize the dilutive effect of the 2020 final stock dividend, Aegon will repurchase shares for an amount of EUR 72 million. These shares will be held as treasury shares and will be used to pay future stock dividends.

Aegon will also repurchase common shares for an amount of EUR 61 million in the context of share-based variable compensation plans for the years 2017-2021. This will be done to neutralize the dilutive effect of the shares already vested and those to be vested in the future for these plans. The repurchased shares will be held as treasury shares until allocation to the plan participants.

The repurchase of shares will commence on July 8, 2021 and is expected to be completed on or before August 25, 2021. Aegon will engage a third party to execute the transactions on its behalf. The common shares will be repurchased at a maximum of the average of the daily volume-weighted average prices during the repurchase period.

Weekly updates regarding the transactions will be available on aegon.com.

Aegon undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward- looking statements. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which merely reflect company expectations at the time of writing.

Such risks and uncertainties include but are not limited to the following:

  1. Changes in general economic and/or governmental conditions, particularly in the United States, the Netherlands and the United


  1. Changes in the performance of financial markets, including emerging markets, such as with regard to:

  1. Changes in the performance of Aegon's investment portfolio and decline in ratings of Aegon's counterparties;
  1. Lowering of one or more of Aegon's debt ratings issued by recognized rating organizations and the adverse impact such action may have on Aegon's ability to raise capital and on its liquidity and financial condition;
  1. Lowering of one or more of insurer financial strength ratings of Aegon's insurance subsidiaries and the adverse impact such action

may have on the written premium, policy retention, profitability and liquidity of its insurance subsidiaries;

  1. Changes affecting interest rate levels and continuing low or rapidly changing interest rate levels;
  1. Changes affecting currency exchange rates, in particular the EUR/USD and EUR/GBP exchange rates;
  1. Changes in the availability of, and costs associated with, liquidity sources such as bank and capital markets funding, as well as

  1. Increasing levels of competition in the United States, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and emerging markets;
  1. Catastrophic events, either manmade or by nature, including by way of example acts of God, acts of terrorism, acts of war and pandemics, could result in material losses and significantly interrupt Aegon's business;
  1. The frequency and severity of insured loss events;
  1. Changes affecting longevity, mortality, morbidity, persistence and other factors that may impact the profitability of Aegon's insurance products;
  1. Aegon's projected results are highly sensitive to complex mathematical models of financial markets, mortality, longevity, and other dynamic systems subject to shocks and unpredictable volatility. Should assumptions to these models later prove incorrect, or should

errors in those models escape the controls in place to detect them, future performance will vary from projected results;

  1. Reinsurers to whom Aegon has ceded significant underwriting risks may fail to meet their obligations;
  1. Changes in customer behavior and public opinion in general related to, among other things, the type of products Aegon sells, including legal, regulatory or commercial necessity to meet changing customer expectations;
  1. Customer responsiveness to both new products and distribution channels;
  1. As Aegon's operations support complex transactions and are highly dependent on the proper functioning of information technology, operational risks such as system disruptions or failures, security or data privacy breaches, cyberattacks, human error, failure to safeguard personally identifiable information, changes in operational practices or inadequate controls including with respect to third

parties with which we do business may disrupt Aegon's business, damage its reputation and adversely affect its results of operations, financial condition and cash flows;

  1. The impact of acquisitions and divestitures, restructurings, product withdrawals and other unusual items, including Aegon's ability to integrate acquisitions and to obtain the anticipated results and synergies from acquisitions;
  1. Aegon's failure to achieve anticipated levels of earnings or operational efficiencies, as well as other management initiatives related to cost savings, cash capital at Holding, gross financial leverage and free cash flow;
  1. Changes in the policies of central banks and/or governments;
  1. Litigation or regulatory action that could require Aegon to pay significant damages or change the way Aegon does business;
  1. Competitive, legal, regulatory, or tax changes that affect profitability, the distribution cost of or demand for Aegon's products; o Consequences of an actual or potential break-up of the European monetary union in whole or in part, or the exit of the United
    Kingdom from the European Union and potential consequences if other European Union countries leave the European Union;
    o Changes in laws and regulations, particularly those affecting Aegon's operations' ability to hire and retain key personnel, taxation of Aegon companies, the products Aegon sells, and the attractiveness of certain products to its consumers;
    o Regulatory changes relating to the pensions, investment, and insurance industries in the jurisdictions in which Aegon operates; o Standard setting initiatives of supranational standard setting bodies such as the Financial Stability Board and the International
    Association of Insurance Supervisors or changes to such standards that may have an impact on regional (such as EU), national or US federal or state level financial regulation or the application thereof to Aegon, including the designation of Aegon by the Financial Stability Board as a Global Systemically Important Insurer (G-SII); and
    o Changes in accounting regulations and policies or a change by Aegon in applying such regulations and policies, voluntarily or otherwise, which may affect Aegon's reported results, shareholders' equity or regulatory capital adequacy levels.
