DZ BANK's capital resources also adequate in stress conditions

DZ BANK took part successfully in the EU-wide bank stress test 2010.

The result achieved assuming a stress scenario (including sovereign shock) showed a Tier-1 capital ratio of 8.7 percent as of the end of 2011. The form prescribed by the CEBS for the publication of the results of the stress test can be downloaded on DZ BANK's Investor Relations Web Page under Investor Relations/IR Publications.
