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. We also take into consideration the free cash flow from the industrial business when setting the dividend. The Board of Management and the Supervisory Board will propose to the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting to be held on April 1, 2019 that a dividend of €0.90 per share be distributed for financial year 2019 (2018: €3.25). This corresponds to a total dividend distribution to our shareholders of €1.0 billion (2018: €3.5 billion). (See graphic B.19)
