was the second successive year in which we have invested in the bank's
future growth and in further strengthening our controls while addressing
legacy issues. These factors impacted our financial results. Nonetheless,
underlying core business profitability was amongst the highest of the past
decade, and we have made Deutsche Bank fitter, safer and better balanced.
