Forward-looking statements contain risks
This report 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 report 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 strategic initiatives, 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 2013 Annual Report on Form 20-F, which was filed with the SEC on March 20, 2014, on pages 11 through 25 under the heading Risk Factors. Copies of this document are readily available upon request or can be downloaded from www.deutsche-bank.com/ir.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This document and other documents we have published or may publish contain non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures are measures of our historical or future performance, financial position or cash flows that contain adjustments which exclude or include amounts that are included or excluded, as the case may be, from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS in our financial statements. Examples of our non-GAAP financial measures, and the most directly comparable IFRS financial measures, are as follows:
|Non-GAAP Financial Measure||Most Directly Comparable IFRS Financial Measure|
|IBIT attributable to Deutsche Bank shareholders||Income (loss) before income taxes|
|Average active equity||Average shareholders equity|
|Pre-tax return on average active equity||Pre-tax return on average shareholders equity|
|Post-tax return on average active equity||Post-tax return on average shareholders equity|
|Tangible book value||Total shareholders equity (book value)|
|Adjusted cost base||Noninterest expenses|
|IBIT attributable to Deutsche Bank shareholders (adjusted)||Income (loss) before income taxes|
|Cost-income ratio (adjusted)||Cost-income ratio (ratio of Noninterest expenses to Net Revenues)|
|Post-tax return on average active equity based on IBIT (adjusted)||Post-tax return on average shareholders equity|
For descriptions of these non-GAAP financial measures and the adjustments made to the most directly comparable IFRS financial measures to obtain them, please refer to the subsection Other Information (unaudited) of Exhibit 99.1 hereto. Additionally, as part of its balance sheet management, Deutsche Bank uses a fully loaded CRR/CRD 4 leverage ratio, which is described in the subsection Management Report: Risk Report: Balance Sheet Management of Exhibit 99.1 hereto.
For descriptions of non-GAAP financial measures with respect to earlier period data, please refer to pages 4 and 5 of our 2013 Annual Report on Form 20-F, which also describe where in the 2013 Annual Report on Form 20-F such non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to the most directly comparable financial measures under IFRS.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
