VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

Shares of Deutsche Bank (DB) were slipping in Monday trading after the bank announced an 8 billion-euro, or nearly $11 billion, capital increase.

Deutsche Bank plans to issue 360 million new shares, 60 million of which are being purchased by the royal family of Qatar for about 1.7 billion euros. The bank said it plans to raise another 6.3 billion euros in a rights issue to existing shareholders.
