Deutsche Bank treasury stock inventory below 5 per cent

Deutsche Bank (XETRA: DBKGn.DE / NYSE: DB) today announced in the form of a compulsory notification pursuant to the German Securities Trading Act that on 21 March 2007 the holdings of its own shares fell below the threshold of 5 per cent and is now 4.6 per cent.

The drop below the 5 per cent is attributable to share awards granted to Deutsche Bank staff, which are covered with treasury shares.

A detailed update on the progress of the current share buyback program will be provided with the release of Deutsche Bank’s 1Q2007 results on 8 May 2007.

This Release contains forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts; they include statements about our beliefs and expectations. Any statement in this Press Release that states our intentions, beliefs, expectations or predictions (and the assumptions underlying them) is a forward-looking statement. 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 Business Realignment Program; 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 23 March 2006 in the section "Risk Factors." Copies of this document are readily available upon request or can be downloaded from
