04 September 2015

Further to the notice published on 21 August 2015 in relation to the termination and de-listing of various db x-trackers sub-funds and share classes, a copy of which is appended at Annex 2, (the “Original Notice”), the board of directors of the Company (the “Board of Directors”) wishes to clarify an error contained in the Original Notice regarding the de-listing of certain share classes of the Sub-Funds from the London Stock Exchange (the “LSE”).

The Original Notice stated that the Share Classes (as defined in Annex 1 below) of the Sub-Funds are to be fully de-listed from the LSE. However this is not the case, as instead the Board of Directors only wishes to cancel specific trading currency lines of the Share Classes (the “Terminating Trading Currency Lines”) from the LSE, as set out in Annex 1.

The Board of Directors has indeed resolved to proceed with the cancellation of the Terminating Trading Currency Lines (the “Cancellations”) with effect from 25 September 2015 (the “Cancellation Date”). For the avoidance of doubt, not all trading currency lines of the Share Classes will be cancelled from the LSE. Only those trading currency lines listed in the third column of Annex 1 and defined as the Terminating Trading Currency Lines will be cancelled from the LSE.

Requests for redemption or subscription for the Share Classes in the Terminating Trading Currency Lines on the LSE may only be made until close of business on 24 September 2015.

Any further information in relation to the Cancellations may be obtained from the legal entities mentioned under ‘Contact information’ below, the offices of foreign representatives or by sending an email to info.dbx-trackers@db.com.

After the Cancellation Date, the Share Classes will remain listed on the LSE in the form of a separate trading currency line and on one or more other stock exchanges. In order for you to sell your shares after the Cancellation Date, you would need to instruct your custodian to transfer your shares to one of those separate trading currency lines or stock exchanges.

For the avoidance of doubt, the clarification described herein only concerns those Sub-Funds described in this notice. The terminations and de-listings of the other sub-funds and share classes described in the Original Notice but not mentioned in this notice will proceed as detailed in that Original Notice.

Capitalised terms used in this notice shall have the same meaning ascribed to them in the latest version of the prospectus of the Company unless the context otherwise requires.

If, after reading this notice, you have further questions then please do not hesitate to contact the db x-trackers ETF hotline on +44 (20) 7547 1747 or +49 (69) 910 30549.

Shareholders should consult their own professional advisers as to the specific tax implications of the Cancellations under the laws of the countries of their nationality, residence, domicile or incorporation.

Neither the contents of the Company’s website nor the contents of any other website accessible from hyperlinks on the Company’s website is incorporated into, or forms part of, this announcement.

If you have any queries or if any of the above is not clear you should seek advice from your stockbroker, bank manager, legal adviser, accountant or other independent financial advisor.
