DVB Bank SE: Adjustment of forecast for 2016, and intention of DZ BANK AG to strengthen DVB's capitalisation as well as to conduct a squeeze-out

Frankfurt/Main, 14 November 2016

DVB Bank SE (DVB) corrects the forecast business performance communicated on 21 September 2016, by way of an ad-hoc disclosure, as follows:

As the shipping crisis continues to escalate, the need for a further increase in allowance for credit losses on legacy exposures in Shipping Finance and Offshore Finance has emerged for the fourth quarter of 2016. As a result, DVB now expects a consolidated net loss before IAS 39 for 2016 that is anticipated to be in a low negative triple-digit million euro range. Likewise, DVB no longer anticipates being able to achieve the financial management indicators - return on equity (before taxes), cost/ income ratio, and Economic Value Added - as forecast for the 2016 financial year in the 2015 Annual Report.

DVB's tier 1 and total capital ratios in accordance with the CRR will remain adequate. Furthermore, DVB's parent company, DZ BANK AG Deutsche Zentral-Genossenschaftsbank, Frankfurt am Main, intends to strengthen DVB's capitalisation through appropriate measures, also against the background of stricter capital requirements for banks.

Furthermore, the Board of Managing Directors of DZ BANK AG, Deutsche Zentral-Genossenschaftsbank, Frankfurt am Main, has notified the Board of Managing Directors of DVB Bank SE today that it intends to conduct a squeeze-out at DVB.
