Daimler AG To Create New Board Of Management Position For 'Integrity And Legal'

In this context, the Daimler Board of Management has decided to further expand its compliance activities – with the inclusion of relations with business partners. The Daimler Group now operates in nearly 200 countries, either with its own companies or with partner companies. The flawless execution of all transactions in conformity with applicable regulations requires a properly trained compliance organization with a worldwide reach as well as effective processes and controls. For this reason, Daimler will create even clearer structures and apply more resources in order to meet those requirements.

All of the new activities will be carried out in addition to the programs already established in recent years. The measures taken include establishing the position of a Chief Compliance Officer reporting to the new member of the Board of Management, setting up a global Compliance Organization, placing compliance managers in numerous subsidiaries and operating units, and developing an international training program including regular compliance conferences, seminars and information. A Compliance Consultation Desk has been established offering Daimler employees individual advice on questions related to the area of compliance at Daimler. Furthermore, whistleblower possibilities have been established at Daimler, allowing each employee as well as external personnel to inform the company of any compliance issues.

Further information from Daimler is available on the internet at: www.media.daimler.com and www.daimler.com

This document contains forward-looking statements that reflect our current views about future events. The words "anticipate," "assume," "believe," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "plan," "project," "should" and similar expressions are used to identify forward-looking statements. These statements are subject to many risks and uncertainties, including a lack of further improvement or a renewed deterioration of global economic conditions, in particular a renewed decline of consumer demand and investment activity in Western Europe or the United States, or a downturn in major Asian economies; a continuation or worsening of the tense situation in the credit and financial markets, which could result in a renewed increase in borrowing costs or limit our funding flexibility; changes in currency exchange rates or interest rates; the ability to continue to offer fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly products; a permanent shift in consumer preference towards smaller, lower margin vehicles; the introduction of competing, fuel-efficient products and the possible lack of acceptance of our products or services, which may limit our ability to adequately utilize our production capacities or raise prices; price increases in fuel, raw materials and precious metals; disruption of production due to shortages of materials, labor strikes, or supplier insolvencies; a renewed decline in resale prices of used vehicles; the effective implementation of cost-reduction and efficiency-optimization programs at all of our segments, including the repositioning of our truck activities in the NAFTA region and in Asia; the business outlook of companies in which we hold an equity interest, most notably EADS; the successful implementation of the strategic cooperation with Renault-Nissan, changes in laws, regulations and government policies, particularly those relating to vehicle emissions, fuel economy and safety; the resolution of pending governmental investigations and the outcome of pending or threatened future legal proceedings; and other risks and uncertainties, some of which we describe under the heading "Risk Report" in Daimler's most recent Annual Report and under the headings "Risk Factors" and "Legal Proceedings" in Daimler's most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. If any of these risks and uncertainties materialize, or if the assumptions underlying any of our forward-looking statements prove incorrect, then our actual results may be materially different from those we express or imply by such statements. We do not intend or assume any obligation to update these forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made.
