Deutsche Bank has taken a bigger battering than most banks hit by a shrinking eurozone
Frankfurt - AFP

Deutsche Bank, Germany's biggest lender, said Tuesday it has bought back 1.27 billion euros  ($1.4 billion) of its own bonds as part of a bid to assuage concerns about the solidity of its finances, but the amount was smaller than expected.

Just 11 days ago, the bank announced plans to repurchase up to 3.0 billion euros of euro-denominated securities.

That move was part of a multiple offensive to allay fears which also saw its new chief executive John Cryan take the unusual step of issuing a public statement and writing to Deutsche Bank's employees to say that the group "remains absolutely rock-solid, given our strong capital and risk position."

In a short statement Tuesday, Deutsche Bank said that investors had tendered a total 1.75 billion euros of bonds for it to buy back.

"The relatively low investor participation reflects the improving market sentiment and an investor preference to retain exposure to Deutsche Bank," the statement said.

The entire European banking sector lost about a fifth of its market capitalisation in January, dragged down by weakness in the eurozone economy and challenges facing banks from ultra-low interest rates and regulatory pressures.

But Deutsche Bank has taken a bigger battering because it is also entangled in a web of legal woes. Its share price has plunged by a third since the beginning of the year.  

The bank faces a quagmire of as many as 6,000 different litigation cases, the provisions for which helped push it to a record loss of 6.8 billion euros last year.  

It was fined last May a record $2.5 billion for its involvement in rigging interest rates, and has faced probes by Swiss authorities for suspected price fixing on the precious metals market.

US investigators have also looked into its Moscow branch on suspicion of possible involvement in money laundering.
