Deutsche Bank convenes Extraordinary General Meeting to confirm contested resolutions of the Annual General Meeting 2012


Today, the Management Board of Deutsche Bank (XETRA: DBKGn.DE / NYSE: DB) decided to convene an Extraordinary General Meeting for 11 April 2013, in Frankfurt am Main, in order to confirm the contested resolutions of the Annual General Meeting 2012. Various plaintiffs had contested, among other matters, resolutions of the Annual General Meeting 2012 regarding Agenda Items 2 (Appropriation of distributable profit), 5 (Election of the auditor) and 9 (Election of three shareholder representatives to the Supervisory Board). In a decision the Frankfurt am Main District Court granted the specified actions of the plaintiffs on 18 December 2012. Deutsche Bank has appealed this decision.

Deutsche Bank’s Management Board decided to convene an Extraordinary General Meeting in order to establish the required legal certainty and to ensure that the Bank can hold its next regular Annual General Meeting as planned on 23 May 2013. The invitation to the Extraordinary General Meeting on 11 April 2013 will be sent in due time in accordance with the statutory requirements.

Deutsche Bank will postpone the publication of its Annual Report 2012 and Form 20-F until mid-April 2013, following the Extraordinary General Meeting.

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.
