* Deutsche Bank needs reliable partners - Innogy CEO
* Blue-chips ready to inject capital - Handelsblatt
* Deutsche was among global coordinators in Innogy IPO
(Adds further quotes, context)
FRANKFURT, Oct 7 Neither Innogy nor
parent RWE are likely to take a stake in Germany's
largest lender Deutsche Bank, Innogy's Chief
Executive told Reuters on Friday.
"We have just raised billions with the promise to invest in
networks and renewables. I don't think this included a promise
for a Deutsche Bank investment," Peter Terium said in Frankfurt
following the initial public offering offer of Innogy, Germany's
largest listing in 16 years.
German business paper Handelsblatt reported earlier that
German blue-chip corporations were ready to offer a capital
injection to Deutsche Bank, which has been engulfed in crisis
since news emerged last month of a U.S. demand for a $14 billion
settlement over the sale of toxic mortgage bonds.
The paper did not name any specific companies.
German utility RWE, part of Germany's blue-chip
DAX index, holds a 75 percent stake in Innogy, which
bundles its power networks, retail and renewables operations.
Terium said Deutsche Bank was more in need of reliable
partners and clients than investors, pointing to Deutsche Bank's
role as one of the global coordinators of Innogy's IPO.
"I think I've helped them much more that way than by buying
a few shares."
