The PowerShares DB 3x Japanese Govt Bond Futures Exchange Traded Notes (Symbol: JGBT), PowerShares DB Japanese Govt Bond Futures Exchange Traded Notes (Symbol: JGBL) (collectively, the "PowerShares DB JGB Futures ETNs") and the PowerShares DB Inverse Japanese Govt Bond Futures Exchange Traded Notes (Symbol: JGBS) and PowerShares DB 3x Inverse Japanese Govt Bond Futures Exchange Traded Notes (Symbol: JGBD) (collectively, the "PowerShares DB Inverse JGB Futures ETNs", together with the PowerShares DB JGB Futures ETNs, the "ETNs") provide investors with leveraged or unleveraged exposure to the U.S. dollar value of the returns of a long Japanese sovereign bond futures index or a short Japanese sovereign bond futures index, respectively.
The ETNs are senior unsecured obligations issued by Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch.
The PowerShares DB JGB Futures ETNs are based on the DB USD JGB Futures Index (the "Long JGB Futures Index"), which is intended to measure the performance of a notional long position in 10-year JGB Futures. The PowerShares DB Inverse JGB Futures ETNs are based on the DB USD Inverse JGB Futures Index (the "Short JGB Futures Index"), which is intended to measure the performance of a notional short position in 10-year JGB Futures. The underlying assets of 10-year JGB Futures are Japanese-government issued debt securities ("JGBs") with a remaining term to maturity of not less than 7 years and not more than 11 years as of their issue date and the futures contract delivery date. The returns of each ETN are obtained by combining the monthly returns or three times the monthly returns from the relevant JGB futures index with the returns of the DB 3-Month T-Bill Index (the "TBill Index"), less investor fees. Investors can buy and sell the ETNs on the NYSE Arca exchange or receive a cash payment at the scheduled maturity or early redemption based on the performance of the index less investor fees. The issuer has the right to redeem the ETNs at the repurchase value at any time.
Investors may redeem the ETNs in blocks of no less than 50,000 securities and multiples of 50,000 securities thereafter, subject to the procedures described in the pricing supplement. Redemptions may include a fee of up to $0.03 per security.

1 ETN repurchase value performance figures reflect repurchase value, which would require investors to have a minimum number of shares (found in pricing supplement). Repurchase value is the current principal amount x applicable index factor x fee factor. See the prospectus for more complete information. Investors holding less than the minimum number of shares required to effect a repurchase would have to sell their shares at prevailing market prices, which may be at a discount to the repurchase value. See "ETN Market Price" in this table. ETN repurchase value is based on a combination of three times the monthly returns, for the 3x JGB Futures ETNs, or the monthly returns, for the JGB Futures ETNs, from the Long JGB Futures Index plus the monthly returns from the T-Bill Index and three times the monthly returns, for the 3x Inverse JGB Futures ETNs, or the monthly returns, for the Inverse JGB Futures ETNs, from the Short JGB Futures Index plus the monthly returns from the T-Bill Index, resetting monthly as per the formula applied to the ETNs, less the investor fee. The T-Bill Index is intended to approximate the returns from investing in 3-month United States Treasury bills on a rolling basis.

Important Risk Considerations
The ETNs are senior unsecured obligations of Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, and the amount due on the ETNs is dependent on Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch's ability to pay. The ETNs are riskier than ordinary unsecured debt securities and have no principal protection. Risks of investing in the ETNs include limited portfolio diversification, full principal at risk, trade price fluctuations, illiquidity and leveraged losses. The investor fee will reduce the amount of your return at maturity or upon redemption of your ETNs even if the value of the relevant index has increased. If at any time the repurchase value of the ETNs is zero, the relevant ETNs will be accelerated and you will lose your entire investment in such ETNs. As described in the pricing supplement, Deutsche Bank may redeem the ETNs for an amount in cash equal to the repurchase value.
The ETNs may be sold throughout the day on NYSE Arca through any brokerage account. There are restrictions on the minimum number of ETNs that you may redeem directly with Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, as specified in the applicable pricing supplement. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply. Sales in the secondary market may result in losses.
The ETNs provide concentrated exposure to notional positions in 10-year JGB futures contracts. The market value of the ETNs may be influenced by many unpredictable factors, including, among other things, changes in supply and demand relationships, changes in interest rates, changes in currency exchange rates, and monetary and other governmental actions, each in the U.S. or Japan.
The 3x JGB Futures ETN and the 3x Inverse JGB Futures ETN are leveraged investments. As such, they are likely to be more volatile than unleveraged investments. There is also a greater risk of loss of principal associated with leveraged investments than with unleveraged investments.
An investment in the ETNs involves risks, including the loss of some or all of the principal amount. For a description of the main risks, see "Risk Factors" in the applicable pricing supplement and the accompanying prospectus supplement and prospectus.
