Later some regional organizations merged, and then themselves merged with DG Bank, in 2001 giving rise to the Deutsche Zentral Genossenschaftsbank (DZ Bank). Only one regional bank remained (the WGZ), and it has still not agreed to merge with the rest. Today German cooperative banks number more than 1300, with 14 500 branches and 15 million members, and account for 19 per cent of German bank deposits and 12 per cent of lending.
