The agreement, which may be announced Thursday afternoon, pending supervisory-board approval, is considered a "voluntary contribution" by the 10 former and one current management-board member, the sources said.

The bank has held back approximately EUR70 million in deferred and unvested compensation from the group, which includes former co-Chief Executive Officers Anshu Jain and Jürgen Fitschen, the people said. The agreement means that roughly EUR31 million of that total will be released.

Mr. Jain and Mr. Fitschen weren't immediately reached for comment.

The agreement follows months of negotiations over final contributions that differ between the individuals, but follow the same formula for calculating each person's proportion of the total amount, one of the sources said.
