COPENHAGEN Nov 15 Danish jewellery maker
Pandora said on Friday that its two main
shareholders has sold 20 million of their shares for a combined
4.9 billion Danish crowns ($884.13 million), corresponding to a
price per share of 245 crowns.
The 20 million shares sold represented around 15.4 percent

After the transaction, Danish private equity group Axcel
owns around 17.6 percent of the shares, and the Enevoldsen
family, which founded the company, owns around 6.2 percent.
Pandora itself will not receive any proceeds from the sales.
Goldman Sachs International, J.P. Morgan Securities
plc. and Carnegie Bank acted as joint bookrunners.
