Updates with details
FRANKFURT, Oct 28 (Reuters) - Deutsche Bank DBKGn.DE posted a 182 million euro net profit in the third quarter as it navigates its ongoing restructuring and the coronavirus pandemic, the German lender disclosed on Wednesday.
The profit attributable to shareholders compares with a loss of 942 million euros a year earlier. The figures are better than expected.
The bank last posted a quarterly profit in the first quarter of 2019.
Deutsche, Germany's largest lender, has lost money for the past five years and is hoping to reverse its fortunes through an overhaul by shedding staff, exiting some businesses and cutting cuts.
