Deutsche Bank AG (XETRA: DBKGn.DE / NYSE: DB) completed the capital increase from authorized capital against cash contributions, which it had announced on 12 September 2010. In total, 308.6 million new registered no par value shares (common shares) were issued. 99.31 percent of the subscription rights were exercised by the owners of the subscription rights, and thus 306.51 million new shares were issued at a subscription price of EUR 33.00 per share. The remaining 2.13 million new shares that were not subscribed on the basis of the subscription offer will be sold on the stock exchange.
The share capital (common shares) of Deutsche Bank AG has thus increased by EUR 790.1 million, from EUR 1,589.4 million to EUR 2,379.5 million, and the gross issue proceeds amounted to EUR 10.2 billion.
Dr. Josef Ackermann, Chairman of the Management Board, said: “The successful capital increase is an impressive demonstration of the trust in Deutsche Bank’s perspectives for the future. We thank our shareholders for this and promise to do everything we can to fulfil the expectations placed in us.”

This release contains forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts; they include statements about our beliefs and expectations and the assumptions underlying them. These statements are based on plans, estimates and projections as they are currently available to the management of Deutsche Bank. Forward-looking statements therefore speak only as of the date they are made, and we undertake no obligation to update publicly any of them in light of new information or future events.
By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties. A number of important factors could therefore cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. Such factors include the conditions in the financial markets in Germany, in Europe, in the United States and elsewhere from which we derive a substantial portion of our trading revenues, potential defaults of borrowers or trading counterparties, the implementation of our strategic initiatives, the reliability of our risk management policies, procedures and methods, and other risks referenced in our filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Such factors are described in detail in our SEC Form 20-F of March 16, 2010, in the section “Risk Factors”.
