Frankfurt am Main, 19 March 2017 – 14:56 CET – Deutsche Bank AG (XETRA: DBKGn.DE / NYSE: DB) today fixed the total proceeds from its capital increase against cash contributions at EUR 8.0 billion and set the following key parameters:
— Issue of 687.5 million new shares
— Subscription ratio of 2 : 1
— Subscription price of EUR 11.65 per share
Deutsche Bank will issue a total of 687.5 million new registered no par value shares (common shares) in public offerings in Germany, the United Kingdom and in the United States, using authorized capital. The subscription price will be EUR 11.65 per new share issued, and the subscription ratio will be 2 : 1.

The new shares will have the same dividend entitlement as the existing shares. The gross proceeds from the offering, which is fully underwritten, will amount to EUR 8.0 billion. The underwriting syndicate was increased from eight to 30 banks since the initial announcement on 5 March 2017.
The subscription rights are expected to be traded on the German stock exchanges from 21 March through 4 April 2017, and on the New York Stock Exchange from 21 through 31 March 2017. It is expected that the new shares will be delivered through Clearstream Banking AG on or about 7 April 2017 and through The Depository Trust Company on or about 11 April 2017, and will be included in the existing quotation of the Deutsche Bank shares on the German stock exchanges and on the New York Stock Exchange on or about 7 April 2017.

In connection with the offering of the New Shares, Credit Suisse Securities (Europe) Limited will be acting as the stabilization manager and it (or one of its affiliates) may take stabilization measures aimed at supporting the market price of the shares of Deutsche Bank AG in order to offset any existing selling pressure in such shares (stabilization measures). The stabilization manager has no obligation to undertake stabilization measures. Accordingly, it cannot be guaranteed that stabilization measures will be taken at all. If stabilization measures are taken, they may be discontinued at any time without prior announcement. Such stabilization measures may be taken on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse) or the New York Stock Exchange as from the date of the publication of the Subscription Offer and must cease at the latest on the 30th calendar day following expiration of the subscription period, expected to be May 6, 2017 (stabilization period). Stabilization measures may result in a (quoted) market price of the shares of the Company that is higher than would be the case in the absence of such measures. Furthermore, the (quoted) market price may temporarily reach a level that is not sustainable.
