Deutsche Bank AG (XETRA: DBKGn.DE / NYSE: DB) has successfully completed the capital increase from authorized capital against cash contributions it announced on 5 March 2017. The number of no par value shares of Deutsche Bank AG has increased by 687.5 million, from 1,379.3 million to 2,066.8 million through the public offering of new shares via subscription rights. The gross proceeds amount to approximately EUR 8.0 billion. The subscription price was 11.65 euros per share. 98.9 per cent of the subscription rights were exercised. The remaining new shares that were not subscribed will be sold in the market.
Had the capital increase been completed on 31 December 2016, Deutsche Bank’s Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) ratio on that date would have been 14.1% on a pro forma CRD4 fully loaded basis rather than 11.8%. Including the capital increase, the pro forma CRD4 fully loaded leverage ratio at year end of 2016 would have been 4.1% rather than 3.5%.
Commencing Friday, 7 April 2017, the new shares are included in the existing listing of Deutsche Bank shares on the German stock exchanges and on the New York Stock Exchange.

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.
