In line with a sustainable dividend policy, Daimler sets the dividend based on a distribution ratio of 40 % of the net profit attributable to Daimler shareholders. In the light of the business development in 2018, the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board will propose to the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting to be held on May 22, 2019, that a dividend per share of €3.25 (2017: €3.65) be distributed for financial year 2018. This corresponds to a total dividend distribution of €3.5 billion to our shareholders (2017: €3.9 billion). (See graphic B.18)
