Deutsche Bank announces next phase of strategy

The Management Board of Deutsche Bank (XETRA: DBKGn.DE/NYSE: DB) today decided upon the next phase of the Bank's strategy. This reaffirms the Bank’s commitment to remain a leading global bank based in Germany.

The Supervisory Board today decided unanimously to support the proposal submitted by the Management Board.

Details of the strategy will be announced on Monday, April 27, on an analyst call at 8:00 a.m. CET and at a press conference in Frankfurt at 10:30 a.m. CET.

The Bank will also disclose its first quarter results on Sunday afternoon, April 26, at approximately 15:00 CET. Management will discuss these on Monday’s analyst call.
