On September 30, 2014 we received the following letter from BlackRock Investment Management (UK) Limited:


Following a review, conducted in close collaboration with the Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht (BaFin), of the way BlackRock has interpreted its voting rights disclosure obligations under German law, BlackRock entities are filing today a statement representing their holdings as at the settlement date of 25 September 2014 in Daimler AG.
The statement does not reflect a change in BlackRock's current holdings of voting rights. The statement simply updates information currently in the market regarding BlackRock's holdings in Daimler AG. Further, the statement does not signify any change in investment strategies pursued.
Also, BlackRock issues a press release detailing the BlackRock group entities and their respective voting rights applicable to Daimler AG and other relevant German issuers on
http://www.blackrock.com/corporate/en-gb/news-and-insights/press-releases and on Bloomberg.
