Deutsche Bank Losses Mount on Capital Raise Concerns

Corrected

Deutsche Bank AG extended losses as analysts signaled that legal costs may force the German lender to raise capital even if it succeeds in whittling down the $14 billion bill over its mortgage-backed securities business.

The shares fell as much as 2.6 percent in Frankfurt trading Monday and were 1.9 percent lower at 3:43 p.m., pushing the loss for this year to 48 percent. The Stoxx Europe 600 Banks Index was up 1.1 percent.
