Notes in Predictive Statements
This document contains predictive statements regarding our current assessment of future procedures. Words such as „anticipate“, „assume“, „believe“, „estimate“, „expect“, „intend“, „can/could“, „plan“, „project“, „should“, and similar terms indicate such predictive statements. These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties. Examples of this are an economic downturn or a slow down in economic growth in important economic regions, especially in Europe or North America, changes in exchange rates or interest rates, the introduction of products by competitors and a possible loss of acceptance of our products or services that could limit our leeway in the implementation of price increases, increases in the price of fuel, raw materials, and precious metals, interruptions in production caused by material shortages, worker strikes, or supplier bankruptcies, a reduction in the resale price of used vehicles, the business outlook of Daimler Trucks, which could be affected by a longer-than-expected continuing weakness in demand in the United States and Japanese used-vehicle market, the efficient implementation of cost reduction and efficiency improvement programs, the business outlook of Chrysler, in which we hold a stake, including their ability to successfully implement their „Recovery and Transformation Plan“, the business outlook of EADS, in which we hold a stake, including the consequences of future delivery delays and delivery reductions in airplanes, changes in laws, provisions and regulatory guidelines, especially to the extent that they concern vehicle emissions, fuel consumption, and safety, such as the completion of current regulatory investigations and the outcome of pending or imminent future legal proceedings, and further risks and imponderables, some of which are described in the current Daimler annual report under the heading „risk report“, as well as under the headings „Risk Factors“ and „Legal Proceedings“ in the current Daimler annual report on „Form 20-F“, which have been submitted to the US Securities and Exchange Commission. If one of these uncertainties or imponderables should occur, or should the underlying assumptions for the predictive statements prove to be incorrect, the actual results could be considerably different from the results indicated or implied by these statements. We neither have the intention nor will we undertake any commitment to constantly update the predictive statements, as these are based on the circumstances of the day of publication. In order to better understand and to receive additional information regarding these risks, we recommend that you examine the company’s course of business and the respective general conditions. These are always currently described by the company in the latest annual reports, interim reports, the current Annual Report on Form 20-F, and the latest report on Form 6-K that was submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
