At the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on April 9, 2014, the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board will propose an increase in the dividend to €2.25 per share (prior year: €2.20). With this proposal, we are letting our shareholders participate in the Company’s success while expressing our confidence about the ongoing course of business. We want our shareholders to participate appropriately in Daimler’s financial success also in the coming years. In setting the dividend, we will aim to distribute approximately 40% of the net profit attributable to Daimler shareholders.
