We aim to achieve a sustainable dividend development also in the coming years. In setting the dividend, our target is to distribute approximately 40 % of the net profit attributable to Daimler shareholders.

At the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on March 29, 2017, the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board will propose a dividend of €3.25 per share (prior year: €3.25). This represents a total distribution of €3.5 billion (prior year: €3.5 billion). With this proposal, we are letting our shareholders participate in the Company’s success.
