Daimler Group EBIT for Q2 2013 above market expectations

Stuttgart - Daimler AG (stock symbol DAI) today disclosed its preliminary
figures for the second quarter of 2013. The Group generated revenues of
EUR 29.7 billion while Group EBIT including special items amounts to EUR

The divisions' preliminary EBIT including special items are as follows: 

Mercedes-Benz Cars: EUR 1,041 million
Daimler Trucks: EUR 434 million
Mercedes-Benz Vans: EUR 204 million
Daimler Buses: EUR 27 million
Daimler Financial Services: EUR 319 million

Negative special items in connection with ongoing restructuring programs
are included in the earnings of the divisions Daimler Trucks (minus EUR82
million) and Daimler Buses (minus EUR20 million). As previously announced,
there was also a special item with a positive impact on EBIT related to the
sale of all EADS; this amounts to EUR 3.2 billion.

As previously announced, the earnings situation from ongoing business
improved in the second quarter.

The divisions' revenues are as follows: 

Mercedes-Benz Cars: EUR 16.3 billion
Daimler Trucks: EUR 8.0 billion
Mercedes-Benz Vans: EUR 2.4 billion
Daimler Buses: EUR 0.9 billion
Daimler Financial Services: EUR 3.5 billion

EBIT outlook for full-year 2013 

Second-quarter earnings are largely in line with our internal expectations
and thus also with our current outlook for the development of EBIT in 2013.
The current EBIT forecasts for the Daimler Group and its divisions
therefore continue to apply unchanged. On the basis of our unchanged
assumptions for the further development of our key markets and the ongoing
growth initiatives and efficiency programs, we continue to assume that EBIT
in the second half of the year will be higher than in the first half.

These Q2 numbers are preliminary and have not yet been reviewed by the
external auditors. Daimler will publish its final results for the second
quarter along with other details in Interim Report Q2 2013 on July 24,

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 an
adverse development of global economic conditions, in particular a decline
of demand in our most important markets; a worsening of the sovereign-debt
crisis in the euro zone; a deterioration of our funding possibilities on
the credit and financial markets; events of force majeure including natural
disasters, acts of terrorism, political unrest, industrial accidents and
their effects on our sales, purchasing, production or financial services
activities; changes in currency exchange rates; a shift in consumer
preference towards smaller, lower margin vehicles; or a possible lack of
acceptance of our products or services which limits our ability to achieve
prices as well as to adequately utilize our production capacities; price
increases in fuel or raw materials; disruption of production due to
shortages of materials, labor strikes, or supplier insolvencies; a decline
in resale prices of used vehicles; the effective implementation of
cost-reduction and efficiency-optimization measures; the business outlook
of companies in which we hold a significant equity interest; the successful
implementation of strategic cooperations and joint ventures; 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 conclusion 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. If any of these risks and uncertainties materialize, or if the
assumptions underlying any of our forwardlooking 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.
