At the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on April 5, 2018, the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board will propose an increased dividend of €3.65 per share for the year 2017 (prior year: €3.25). This represents a total distribution of €3.9 billion (prior year: €3.5 billion). With this proposal, our shareholders are participating in the Company’s success.

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