A step back for N.C.   DB Global Technology unit in Cary will not expand
North Carolina legislators has enacted new legislation requiring people to use public bathrooms or locker rooms that match the gender on their birth certificate rather than their gender identity.

Last September DB Global Technology unit in Cary was said to have agreed to invest another $9 million in the Cary campus before the end of 2016. But John Cryan, co-chief executive officer of the bank, said: "We take our commitment to building inclusive work environments seriously.

"We're proud of our operations and employees in Cary and regret that as a result of this legislation we are unwilling to include North Carolina in our U.S. expansion plans for now. We very much hope that we can re-visit our plans to grow this location in the near future."

Deutsche would have been in line for an incentive package worth $3.38m over 12 years if it reached hiring goals.

DB Global Technology unit was created in 2009 to increase efficiencies in development and maintenance of the bank's software developments.
