Additionally, thecompany failed to maintain an adequate system of supervision, including systemsof follow-up and review, to comply with rules governing the reporting ofoptions positions to the large options positions report system and compliancewith position limits.

Deutsche Bank Securities did not admit to or deny FINRA'sfindings.
