Deutsche Bank First-Quarter Profit May Fall From Year Ago: Table

April 24 (Bloomberg) -- Deutsche Bank AG, Germany’s largest bank, will probably report a drop in first-quarter profit as a rebound in investment-banking earnings wasn’t enough to match year-earlier levels.

Net income probably declined to 1.56 billion euros ($2.05 billion euros, from 2.06 billion euros in the year-earlier period and compared with 147 million euros in the fourth quarter, according to the average estimate of nine analysts surveyed by Bloomberg.

Chief Executive Officer Josef Ackermann will publish earnings for the last time on April 26 before stepping down from the Frankfurt-based bank at the end of May. Pretax profit at the investment bank probably rebounded to 1.64 billion euros after a loss in the preceding three months, analysts said, as the European Central Bank sparked a revival in trading income by pumping more than 1 trillion euros into the banking system since December. That wasn’t sufficient to match the Deutsche Bank’s earnings in the year-earlier period.

With the ECB’s three-year loans “we have seen an improved revenue environment for European investment banks in the first six to eight weeks of the year,” said Amit Goel, an analyst at Credit Suisse Group AG. “FICC revenues have rebounded strongly, especially rates products,” Goel and colleagues wrote in an April 19 note, referring to fixed income, currencies and commodities.

Deutsche Bank has advanced 11 percent in Frankfurt trading this year. The shares fell 0.8 percent to 32.71 euros as of 1:26 p.m. local time, valuing the company at about 30.4 billion euros.

Following is a table of average first-quarter estimates, year-earlier figures and results from the previous quarter, as well as the number of analysts surveyed. The figures are in millions of euros.
