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.

08:22 EDTDBDeutsche Bank co-CEO Cryan says will update on strategy by end of October
In a message from John Cryan, co-CEO of Deutsche Bank, to employees posted on the bank's website, Cryan stated in part: "In my two years on the Supervisory Board, I have come to recognise that we possess many deep client relationships, skilled and committed employees, a strong brand, cultural diversity, and clear leadership in our home market with strength in many others. At the same time, you will know that our bank faces several tough challenges today. I feel it is only right to be direct and honest with you about these matters if we are to solve them. First, our reputation has been damaged by instances of serious misconduct...Second, our current financial performance does not reflect our tremendous potential...Third, we are too diversified and too complex for our own good...Fourth, we must re-engineer our internal processes...One fundamental certainty that we now possess is agreement on the six broad decisions taken as part of Strategy 2020. Those decisions were taken by the Management Board and unanimously supported by the Supervisory Board. We remain committed to them. As a new Co-CEO marking my first day in the role, I believe it right to take the summer and early autumn to decide how to best execute those decisions. We will therefore update the market with further details by the end of October."
