At the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on April 1, 2015, the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board will propose an increase in the dividend to €2.45 per share (prior year: €2.25). 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 €2,621 million (prior year: €2,407 million) and the distribution ratio will be 37.6% of the net profit attributable to the Daimler shareholders (prior year: 35.2%).
