20:17 EDTDBDeutsche Bank announces capital increase with Qatar taking stake
Deutsche Bank announced a capital increase with proceeds expected to be approximately EUR8B. The capital increase will include an ex-rights issue of EUR1.75B which has already been placed with an anchor investor and a fully underwritten rights issue. The rights issue is expected to raise EUR6.3B of new equity. The capital measures will increase the Common Equity Tier 1, CET1, ratio by approximately 230 basis points from 9.5% at the end of the first quarter 2014 to 11.8% on a pro forma CRD4 fully-loaded basis. This increase follows significant strengthening of this ratio, which stood below 6% in mid 2012, under Strategy 2015+. These measures will substantially increase the Bank’s capital ratio, provide a buffer for future regulatory requirements, and support targeted business growth. Deutsche Bank placed approximately 60M shares at a price of EUR29.20 per share with Paramount Holdings Services Ltd., an investment vehicle owned and controlled by His Excellency Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabor Al-Thani of Qatar, who intends to remain an anchor investor in Deutsche Bank. Additionally, through the rights issue, Deutsche Bank expects to issue up to 300M new shares. The rights offering will be led by Deutsche Bank as global coordinator and bookrunner. A syndicate of banks have agreed to a firm underwriting of the new shares. Subject to the approval by the BaFin, a securities prospectus is expected to be published on 5 June 2014. The subscription period is expected to run through 24 June 2014.

06:35 EDTDBCiti plans to rebuild equities franchise, Reuters reports
Citigroup (C) is planning to rebuild its equities franchise in an effort to capitalize on a retrenchment by rivals in the face of new rules created to make the financial system less risky, Reuters reports, citing people familiar with the bank's plans. It may be tough to overcome leaders such as Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), and JPMorgan Chase (JPM), that have long dominated the sector, the report says. Citi is aiming to profit from a retreat of rivals slow to adapt new rules forcing banks to keep more capital, the report says. Deutsche Bank (DB), Credit Suisse (CS), and Barclays (BCS) are among others rebuilding their investment banking businesses, the report adds. Reference Link
