  • (1) In this notice, unless the context otherwise requires,—

Statement of reasons

This notice, which comes into force the day after its notification in the Gazette and expires on 30 September 2014, exempts Deutsche Bank Aktiengesellschaft (DB) and every person acting on its behalf from section 53E(1) of the Securities Act 1978 (the Act). The effect of the exemption is to relieve DB from the requirement to have its financial statements audited by a qualified auditor as defined in section 2C of the Act. The exemption will allow DB to have its financial statements audited by its German auditors instead.

The Securities Commission considers that it is appropriate to grant the exemption because—

  • the Commission has had regard to the German audit requirements that must be complied with by DB. The condition of the exemption requires that the financial statements be audited in accordance with those requirements:

  • the Commission is satisfied that there will be no detriment to investors as a result of the audit being undertaken in accordance with German law and that the exemption will reduce compliance costs for the issuers:

  • the exemption complements exemptions granted to DB from certain provisions in the Financial Reporting Act 1993.


Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 8 October 2009.
