Cautions regarding forward-looking statements
Internet pages, investor relations releases, annual and interim reports, outlooks, presentations, audio and video files of events (live or recorded) and other documents on this website contain among other things forward-looking statements that reflect management's current views with respect to future events. The words "anticipate", "assume", "believe", "estimate", "expect", "intend", "may", "plan,“ "project“, "should“ and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties. Examples may include an economic downturn in Europe or North America, changes in currency exchange rates, interest rates and in raw material prices, introduction of competing products, increased sales incentives, the successful implementation of the new business model for smart, delivery delays for production materials owing to supply bottlenecks, strikes or supplier insolvencies, and a decline in resale prices of used vehicles. Should one of these uncertainties or other difficulties (some of them are described under the heading "Risk report" in the current Daimler annual report plus under the heading "Risk Factors" in the current Daimler annual report in Form 20-F, which was submitted to the U.S. securities and stock exchange commission) arise or the assumptions based on the statements turn out to be incorrect, the actual results could significantly differ from the results mentioned in these statements or implicitly expressed. We do not intend or assume any obligation to continuously update any forward-looking statement, which solely reflects the circumstances on the day of publication.
