FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Deutsche Bank on Thursday said it was too early to assess the need for capital if it were to merge with Commerzbank.
Deutsche made the statement after the Financial Times reported that Deutsche was discussing raising as much as 10 billion euro ($11.22 billion) in fresh equity as part of merger discussions.
