As additional service for our investors and the analyst community we now publish quarterly U.S. GAAP income statements for the year 2001 with supplementary information on revenues.
The first three quarters of 2001 were prepared by adjusting the applicable IAS statements in the following way:
The fourth quarter results were developed by taking the difference between the restated IAS quarters to a U.S. GAAP basis and the full-year audited U.S. GAAP results.
The results presented in these quarterly restatements are not audited, and are intended to provide the reader with a basis to perform a comparative analysis with the U.S. GAAP quarterly results we will publish in the course of 2002. Accordingly, we believe these restated income statements are a reasonable basis for performing a U.S. GAAP comparison, but may not be a basis for a comparison with the IAS results published for prior periods.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the Deutsche Bank Investor Relations team. The next reporting date is 29 April 2002, when the Group’s 1Q2002 results will be published.
