REUTERS: Investors are suing Germany’s biggest lender Deutsche Bank for 740 million euros, alleging they were underpaid for shares in subsidiary Postbank, local media reported Wednesday.


At the heart of the suit is the question of when Deutsche took control of Postbank from its previous owner, logistics firm Deutsche Post.


The investors argue that Deutsche Bank was already in de facto control of Postbank two years before it launched a full takeover of the bank. “Deutsche Bank intervened significantly in Postbank’s business and took over control” as early as 2008, two years before it bought out the plaintiffs’ shares, their Munich-based lawyer Oliver Krauss told business weekly WirtschaftsWoche.


The shareholders say they should therefore have been paid the value of their stock as it stood in September 2008 -- around 64 euros per share -- when Deutsche controlled just 30 percent of Postbank, rather than the 25 euros they received in the full takeover two years later. Some 31 German and international investors are involved in the suit with claims totalling around 740 million euros.


According to court documents seen by WirtschaftsWoche, the plaintiffs accuse Deutsche Bank of striking “numerous contracts and agreements, some of them secret” with Postbank’s former owner Deutsche Post in 2008. They allegedly included giving up risky financial market activities in favour of retailbanking, details of a capital increase at Postbank, personnel changes in the executive and supervisory boards, and the decision not to pay out a dividend in 2008.
