As a company with global operations, Daimler uses a broad spectrum of various financial instruments offered by the international money markets and capital markets to cover its refinancing needs. Daimler needs capital especially for its vehicle leasing and financing business. In addition to issuing short-term bonds in the money market (commercial paper), the company also issues public bonds in the capital market in various currencies with medium and long maturities. These include so-called benchmark issues (bonds with large volumes and high trading volumes) and private placements.
A large proportion of our refinancing requirements is covered by regular issue programs. In the money market, Daimler incidentally uses commercial paper programs primarily in Europe and the NAFTA region. Various programs exist for long-term borrowing in the capital market, such as the multi-currency multi-issuer Euro Medium-Term Note (EMTN) program and the U.S. Medium-Term Note (MTN) program. The programs have a framework amount and can be utilized by issuing individual tranches.
