Commerzbank posted revenue of €1.85 billion in the quarter ended March, the company said on Wednesday, adding the figure fell 14.1% year on year as a result of the coronavirus crisis. Meanwhile, its loss was at €277 million which compares to earnings of €227 million in the same three-month period last year.
