Deutsche Bank (DB) plans to slash its balance sheet by 20% over the next two and a half years in an effort to bring its equity to assets ratio in line with the 3% target mandated under European regulations based on Basel III. The bank may also issue up to €6B in convertible bonds upon receiving more information from Germany's bank regulator about how the hybrid equity capital will be treated, FT says, citing "people briefed on the plans."

    DB is going to get the Citi Group treatment. Massive dilution and a reverse stock split down the road.
