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. The total dividend will thus amount to €2,407 million (prior year: €2,349 million) and the distribution ratio will be 35.2% of the net profit attributable to the Daimler shareholders (prior year: 36.5%).
