Shares and share certificates

Daimler shares (Stock Exchange abbreviation DAI, ISIN DE 000 7100000) are global shares. That means that the stock can be traded on several stock exchanges around the world. The stock is listed on the stock exchanges in Frankfurt (Germany) and Stuttgart (Germany).

The share register will record the changes of ownership in registered shares on a daily basis. This enables Daimler to communicate directly with the registered shareholders, e.g. to call a Shareholders' Meeting. If a bank's name is entered in the share register instead of the shareholder, the bank will forward communications from the company to the shareholder.

Stock certificates issued in the past do not bear coupons. For dividend payments or rights offerings, shareholders will receive a letter or check from the company, sent to the address shown in the share register.

Daimler terminated its sponsored ADR program effective January 5, 2017.

Daimler AG shares are registered shares. That means that they bear the owner's name. In the case of stock held in a collective securities account, share transfers take place by the sale and updating of the relevant portfolios. In the case of physical stock certificates, transfers are usually made by reaching an agreement, handing over the securities, and placement of a transfer declaration on the reverse of the stock certificate. Vis-à-vis the Daimler AG the transfer also has to be entered in the share register to enable the company to communicate directly with the shareholder. In principle, the shareholder is obliged to provide the Company with the information for the share register, including the name, date of birth and the address of the shareholder as well as the number of shares.

It is possible to buy and sell Daimler stock at any time before the date of the Annual Meeting. There is no share blocking.

Even if the stockholder has already confirmed attendance at the Annual Meeting, the stockholding in the share register and in the attendance record will be corrected to take purchases and sales into account. Therefore, the already issued Admission Ticket refers to the stockholding entered in the share register on the day the Admission Ticket was issued.
