Cover photo: The name of the new heavy-duty truck for the construction industry is Mercedes-Benz Arocs. The truck is part of Daimler Trucks’ continuing product offensive in heavy commercial vehicles with Euro VI drive systems in 2013. The start was made in 2011 with the new Actros for long-distance road transport, followed by the Antos for heavy-duty distribution transport last year, and now the Arocs as ‘‘the new force in construction’’. Starting from May, the Arocs will be introduced successively in Europe with the product variants ’’Loader’’ for optimized-payload trucks with a low curb weight and ‘‘Grounder’’ ‫ ޤ‬as shown in the photo ‫ ޤ‬with high stability and load capacity for extreme construction conditions. In addition to their maximum eco-friendliness thanks to Euro VI, the special construction vehicles have three outstanding characteristics: power, efficiency and robustness.

The global stock markets developed amicably at the start of the year, supported by the provisional agreement to avoid the “fiscal cliff” in the USA and positive signs of growth from China. The continued expansionary monetary policy of the large central banks brought high liquidity to the markets, which investors increasingly channeled into stocks, and key indexes edged back up to multi-year highs. In February, the European markets started the month off at a slower pace in response to the political uncertainty in Italy. The publication of Daimler Group results for the year 2012 was received positively by the capital market. The proposal for an unchanged dividend of €2.20 per share and the outlook for the year 2013 were key for bringing the share price up by 2.8% at the reporting date. In March, the mood on the capital markets was dampened by the uncertainty surrounding the rescue package in Cyprus. The stock markets again surrendered a large part of their quarterly gains. Daimler shares could not escape this development. Overall, in the first quarter of 2013 our share rose by 3% to €42.45, thus developing rathermore strongly than the Dow Jones STOXX Auto Index (+0%) and the DAX (+2%). The Daimler share price peaked in early March at €46.66, but could not hold the gains in the weaker market environment in the second half. Market capitalization at the end of the quarter was €45.3 billion.

Favorable interest environment used for refinancing The Daimler Group took advantage of the favorable refinancing conditions on the international money and capital markets in the first quarter of 2013. In January 2013, Daimler Finance North America LLC issued bonds with two-, three- and five-year terms for an aggregate volume of US$3 billion. In March 2013, Daimler AG floated bonds with a volume of €1.5 billion maturing in July 2016 and March 2023 in the framework of a benchmark issue.

Interim Management Report Group sales of 501,600 units at previous year's level Revenue of €26.1 billion under previous year's level Group EBIT of €917 million (Q1 2012: €2,098 million) Net Profit of €564 million (Q1 2012: €1,425 million) Growth in unit sales and revenue expected for full year 2013 Group EBIT from the ongoing business is expected to be below the previous year’s level Significant improvements are expected for the following quarters due to planned new models, the increasing impact of the efficiency programs and the expected market development

Business development Moderate upward trend in world economy The world economy continued to grow in the first quarter of 2013, albeit at a slower pace. The economy remained disappointingly weak, particularly in Western Europe, due to partly recessive developments in a number of national economies. On the other hand, the US economy developed better than expected and showed solid expansion despite the continuing fiscal problems. The economies of a number of emerging markets, in particular in the Asian economic region, remained relatively robust. In the overall view, a sustained economic recovery did not set in despite a positive trend in key global economic indicators. The global stock markets profited from the expansionary monetary policy of the major central banks and posted some strong gains since the beginning of the year. First-quarter global demand for passenger cars was noticeably above the high level of the previous year, due mainly to the significant growth in the US and Chinese markets. Sales in the USA were up by 6% despite the uncertain fiscal policy. With a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 15.3 million units, demand was at its highest level in five years. The Chinese market posted double-digit growth at the start of the year, spurned by the somewhat more dynamic economic development. Car registrations in Western Europe, which developed below the expectations, were still disappointing. With the exception of the United Kingdom, which posted significant increases, all volume markets, including Germany, had to accept double-digit decreases in the first quarter. As a result, demand in Western Europe dropped by another 10% from the already historic low of the previous year, thus sliding below the lowest point of the global financial crisis in 2008/9. The Japanese market recovered from the losses following the end of the government buying incentives, but missed the unusually high level supported by these incentives by around 9%. Unit sales in Russia remained nearly constant at the previous year’s level. The Indian market performed below the expectations with a significant drop under the previous year’s volumes.

First-quarter demand for medium-duty and heavy-duty trucks was retrograde in many core markets. The weak economy continued to impact on the West European market, which posted a significant double-digit decline. Reliable signs of a trend reversal were still not evident. On the other hand, despite the recent volatility, there are growing indications of a market stabilization in North America. The demand was still 10% in the minus compared to the strong quarter in the previous year, but incoming orders in the industry clearly indicate a pending market recovery. The Japanese market developed moderately under the previous year’s level. The effects of the new economic package on truck demand have thus far been only rudimentary. The Brazilian market continued on its course of moderate recovery, although the first-quarter figures did not come up to the previous year’s level. According to the most recent estimates, the Russian market was slightly above the previous year. Truck sales in India and the world’s biggest market, China, were still significantly under the previous year’s levels. First-quarter unit sales in line with previous year In the first quarter of 2013, Daimler sold 501,600 passenger cars and commercial vehicles worldwide and thus remained nearly constant at the previous year’s level. In the first quarter of 2013, Mercedes-Benz Cars again posted high sales of 341,500 units (Q1 2012: 338,300). Despite the difficult start of the automotive market in 2013, which fell short of the expectations, Mercedes-Benz was able to gain new market shares thanks to the great success of the new compact class. First-quarter sales in the strongly lagging German market totaled 61,100 units (Q1 2012: 64,700); and 149,700 units in Western Europe (Q1 2012: 156,300). While group sales in the USA lagged slightly by 1% to 68,000 vehicles, we posted the strongest first quarter sales to date with 71,500 deliveries to end customers in that country. The brand also posted strong first-quarter months for unit sales in Russia and Japan. The first quarter in China was dominated by the reorganization of the sales structures and the upcoming model changes. Group sales were above the lower production level of the previous year (+9%). Daimler Trucks sales, which totaled 101,400 vehicles in the first quarter, were 6% down from the previous year’s level, due mainly to the continued strained economic situation in many core markets and the direct effects on the local truck demand. Our truck sales in Western Europe dropped by 8% to 12,000 units, while our sales of 6,200 vehicles on the German market were almost at the previous year’s level. Nevertheless, we managed to maintain respectively to gain market shares in Western Europe and in Germany.

5

Our sales in Eastern Europe decreased, in particular due to the general drop in demand on the Turkish market, which is significantly below the demand seen in the preceding two strong years. At 30,600 units, our vehicle sales in the NAFTA region decreased by 6%, not least due to pending political decisions in connection with the government deficit in the USA. Nevertheless, we were again able to increase our market share in classes 6-8 from 37.0% to 43.6%. In line with the expected market recovery in Brazil, our sales in Latin America surged by 31% to 13,000 vehicles. At 8,900 units, truck sales in Japan were 9% down from the previous year’s high level due to the lack of discernible impetus from the recently announced economic package in Japan. First-quarter sales of Mercedes-Benz Vans increased slightly to 52,600 units (Q1 2012: 51,200 units) despite the difficult market environment in Western Europe. Thanks to our new city van Citan, which was received positively by the market, our sales in Western Europe decreased only slightly to 32,600 units (Q1 2012: 34,400 units). In Latin America we posted high double-digit sales growth (+39%) to 4,100 units. In the USA, the van division grew sales by 12% to 4,000 units. In the first quarter of 2013, Daimler Buses grew global sales by 23% to 6,000 units due to the rising demand for bus chassis in Latin America. We sold 4,100 chassis of the Mercedes-Benz brand in this region. The business with complete buses in Western Europe was below the prior-year level.

Daimler Financial Services grew its new business by 4% to €8.6 billion. The contract volume of €81.7 billion was 2% over the 2012 year-end volume. Adjusted for currency effects, the contract volume rose by 1%. Daimler’s first-quarter revenue was €26.1 billion or 3% below the previous year’s level. Adjusted for exchange rate effects, a revenue decrease of 1.5% was posted. Mercedes-Benz Cars posted a revenue decrease by 6% despite higher unit sales. The decrease was attributable mainly to changes in the sales structure introduced in connection with the upcoming model change of the S-Class and the new E-Class. The revenue decrease at Daimler Trucks and Mercedes-Benz Vans by 5%, respectively, resulted from the falling demand in many of our core markets. The revenue at Daimler Buses increased by 3% compared to the first quarter of the previous year, but the changed model mix following the repositioning of the North American business model put a damper on revenue growth.

Preliminary note: In June 2011, IASB published revisions to IAS 19 “Employee Benefits”, which were endorsed by the EU in June 2012. The revisions to IAS 19 must be applied retrospectively in financial statements for annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013. The figures reported for the previous year were adjusted for the effects arising from the adoption of the revised IAS 19. Additional information on the adjustments is provided in Note 1 of the Notes to the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements.

Profitability

Mercedes-Benz Cars posted first-quarter 2013 EBIT of €460 million, which was significantly below the previous year’s level (Q1 2012: €1,230 million). Return on sales amounted to 3.3% (Q1 2012: 8.2%). Ê 3.03

The Daimler Group posted EBIT of €917 million in the first quarter of 2013 (Q1 2012: €2,098 million) which was significantly below the previous year’s level. Ê 3.03 The decline in earnings reflects a shift in the regional sales structure and a different model mix at Mercedes-Benz Cars and Mercedes-Benz Vans, as well as the unit sales decrease at Daimler Trucks. The increase in vehicle sales at Daimler Buses led to an EBIT improvement, while EBIT of Daimler Financial Services remained nearly stable.

Daimler Trucks posted EBIT of €116 million, which was below the previous year’s level (Q1 2012: €376 million). Return on sales was 1.7% (Q1 2012: 5.1%). Ê 3.03

The compounding of long-term provisions and effects of lower interest rate factors led to charges of €47 million (Q1 2012: €170 million), which were offset by slightly positive exchange rate effects.

Earnings were affected by the overall retrograde development of unit sales and revenues attributable to the weaker demand in some core markets. In addition, the result was negatively affected by the production expansion in India and China, production adaptations particularly in the NAFTA region and Europe, and higher warranty costs.

The special items shown in the table Ê 3.04 affected EBIT in the first quarter of 2013 and 2012.

Mercedes-Benz Vans posted EBIT of €81 million in the first quarter of 2013 (Q1 2012: €167 million). Accordingly, return on sales decreased from 8.0% in the previous year’s period to 4.1%. Ê 3.03

Daimler Trucks Workforce adjustment

First-quarter earnings were affected by a shift in the regional sales structure and a different model mix. Additional negative effects on EBIT resulted from expenses for product enhancements and capacity increases as well as advance expenditures for new technologies and vehicles. A slight positive effect came from exchange-rate effects.

In the market environment characterized by restrained demand and intensive competition in the European sales markets, Mercedes-Benz Vans unit sales in the first quarter of 2013 were slightly above the previous year’s level. However, a significant decline in earnings was posted as the main result of changes in the product mix and the regional sales structure. Advance expenditures for new products and the launch of the Sprinter Classic in Russia also impacted negatively on earnings. Daimler Buses posted negative EBIT of €31 million (Q1 2012: minus €105 million); return on sales was minus 4.1%. (Q1 2012: minus 14.4%) Ê 3.03 Compared to the previous year, EBIT rose as a result of the increase in vehicle sales (+23%). We posted significantly more chassis deliveries, in particular in Latin America. On the other hand, the business in Europe developed heterogeneously: While the demand for city buses recovered, coaches posted a sales decrease. Exchange rate effects and the initiated efficiency measures had a positive impact on earnings. The expenditures for the business repositioning in Europe were significantly reduced to €4 million (Q1 2012: €36 million).

Daimler Buses Business repositioning

With earnings of €314 million in the first quarter of 2013, Daimler Financial Services was below the level of the previous year (Q1 2012: €344 million). Ê 3.03 This development was due mainly to lower interest margins and normalizing credit risk costs. As an opposing effect, the increased contract volume impacted positively on earnings. The reconciliation of the divisions’ EBIT to Group EBIT is comprised of our proportionate share of the results of our equity-method investment in EADS, other gains and losses at the corporate level, and the effects on earnings of eliminating intra-group transactions between the divisions. Daimler’s share of the net profit of EADS in the first quarter of 2013 amounted to €34 million (Q1 2012: €133 million). The decrease in investment income was also due to the reduction of our participating interest in EADS through the sale of a shares package in December 2012. The reconciliation also includes expenses at corporate level of €91 million (Q1 2012: €35 million). The elimination of intercompany transactions in the first quarter of 2013 resulted in income of €34 million (Q1 2012: expense of €12 million). First-quarter net interest expense amounted to €157 million (Q1 2012: €105 million). The increase in other interest expenses related mainly to the high level of gross liquidity accompanied by an increase in financing liabilities. As a result of the significantly lower level of investment interest compared to refinancing costs, other interest decreased compared to the same quarter in the previous year. The expenses in connection with pension and healthcare obligations increased slightly compared to the previous year. The income taxes of minus €196 million reported in the first quarter of 2013 were lower by €372 million compared to the previous year, due mainly to the lower pre-tax profit. Net profit for the first quarter of 2013 amounted to €564 million (Q1 2012: €1,425 million). Net profit of €28 million is attributable to non-controlling interests (Q1 2012: €78 million) and net profit of €536 million is attributable to the shareholders of Daimler AG (Q1 2012: €1,347 million). Earnings per share therefore amount to €0.50 (Q1 2012: €1.26). The calculation of earnings per share (basic) was based on the average number of outstanding shares of 1,067.7 million (Q1 2012: 1,066.4 million).

Cash flows Cash flow from operating activities Ê 3.05 rose by €0.9 billion to €0.4 billion. Consolidated earnings before taxes were retrograde (minus €1.2 billion). In comparison to the previous period, the development of working capital gave rise to positive effects resulting from the lower increase in inventories, the minor increase in trade receivables and the higher increase in trade payables. The growth of new business from leasing and sales financing remained at the high level of the prior-year period.

Net cash from financing activities Ê 3.05 resulted in a net cash inflow of €2.1 billion in the first quarter (Q1 2012: €3.9 billion), which almost solely reflects new (net) borrowing. Adjusted for currency effects cash and cash equivalents increased by €0.4 billion compared to the level reported at December 31, 2012. Total liquidity, which also includes marketable debt securities, increased by €1.1 billion to €17.7 billion.

3.07 In millions of euros

Net cash used in investing activities Ê 3.05 led to a cash outflow of €2.3 billion (Q1 2012: €1.1 billion). The change compared to the previous year resulted mainly from purchases and sales of securities carried out in the context of liquidity management. The reporting period was characterized by a net outflow of cash; in the previous year’s period, sales of securities significantly exceeded the purchases. The slight increase in investments in intangible assets had a negative effect on cash. In the previous period, cash outflows were posted for capital contributions to Engine Holding and the joint venture of Daimler Trucks in China.

The parameter used by Daimler for measuring the financial strength of its industrial activities is the free cash flow of the industrial business Ê 3.06, which is derived on the basis of the published cash flows from operating and investing activities. On that basis, a correction is made in the amount of the cash flows from the acquisition and sale of marketable securities included in cash flows from investing activities, since those securities are allocated to liquidity and changes in them are thus not part of the free cash flow. Other adjustments relate to additions to property, plant and equipment that are allocated to the Group as their beneficial owner due to the form of their underlying lease contracts. Furthermore, effects from the financing of dealerships within the Group are adjusted. The adjustments also include acquisitions of non-controlling interest in subsidiaries, which are reported as part of cash from financing activities. The free cash flow in the first quarter of 2013 amounted to minus €1.2 billion. The positive profit contributions of the industrial business were offset by the increase in working capital, defined as the net change in inventories, trade receivables and trade payables, which totaled €0.4 billion. Positive effects resulted from the factoring of trade receivables by companies in the industrial business to Daimler Financial Services. High investments in property, plant and equipment and intangible assets had a negative effect. The free cash flow from the industrial business was additionally reduced by income tax and interest payments.

The net liquidity of the industrial business Ê 3.07 is calculated as the total amount of cash and cash equivalents and marketable debt securities included in liquidity management shown in the balance sheet less the currency-hedged nominal amounts of financing liabilities. To the extent the Group’s internal refinancing of the financial services business is provided by companies of the industrial business, the relevant amount is deducted in the calculation of net debt of the industrial business. Compared to December 31, 2012, net liquidity of the industrial business decreased by €1.5 billion to €10.0 billion. The decrease was mainly attributable to the negative free cash flow of €1.2 billion. The net debt at Group level, which resulted primarily from the refinancing of the leasing and sales financing business, increased by €1.8 billion compared to December 31, 2012. The increase was primarily attributable to the development of the free cash flow of the industrial business. Ê 3.08 In the first quarter of 2013, the Daimler Group used the favorable conditions in the international money and capital markets for refinancing purposes. In January 2013, Daimler Finance North America LLC issued a multi-tranche transaction with two-, three- and five-year terms in the US capital market and a total volume of US$3 billion. In March 2013, Daimler AG issued a benchmark transaction with a volume of €1.5 billion maturing in July 2016 and March 2023. In the first quarter, bonds in the amount of €4.7 billion have been issued (Q1 2012: 4.6 billion); cash outflows for the redemption of maturing bonds amounted to €1.5 billion (Q1 2012: €3.1 billion).

Financial position Compared to December 31, 2012, the balance sheet total increased from €163.1 billion to €168.4 billion; adjusted for the effects of currency translation, the increase amounted to €4.1 billion. The financial services business accounted for €87.2 billion (December 31, 2012: €85.5 billion) or as in the previous year 52% of the Daimler Group’s balance sheet total. The rise in the balance sheet total was primarily due to the increase in the financial services business, the higher liquidity (cash and cash equivalents and marketable debt securities) and increased inventories. The increase is accompanied on the liabilities side by higher financing liabilities and trade payables, as well as by an increase in equity. Current assets, which accounted for 42% of total assets, were above the previous year’s level (41%). Current liabilities accounted for 36% of total equity and liabilities, as in the previous year.

3 ⏐ Interim Management Report

Intangible assets totaled €9.0 billion (December 31, 2012: €8.9 billion), comprised of €7.2 billion of capitalized development costs and €0.7 billion of goodwill, as in the previous year. Development costs were recognized by the Mercedes-Benz Cars segment (67%) and by the Daimler Trucks segment (26%). Capital expenditures in property, plant and equipment exceeded the depreciation, thus bringing total property, plant and equipment up to €20.9 billion (December 31, 2012: €20.6 billion). In the first quarter of 2013, total capital expenditures of €1.1 billion were invested in the launch of new products, the expansion of production capacities, and modernization measures --- mainly at the sites in Germany. Equipment on operating leases and receivables from financial services rose to a total of €76.7 billion (December 31, 2012: €75.1 billion). The currency-adjusted increase of €0.7 billion was caused by the higher level of new business due to growth in the unit sales of the automotive divisions. The proportion of total assets remained nearly constant at 46%. Investments accounted for using the equity method, which amounted to €4.4 billion (December 31, 2012: €4.3 billion), include primarily the carrying amounts of our equity interests in EADS, the Engine Holding, the Chinese joint ventures Beijing Foton Daimler Automotive for the truck business and Beijing Benz Automotive in the passenger car area, as well as Kamaz. The increase is due mainly to the equity result from these companies.

The Group’s equity was up by €0.9 billion compared to December 31, 2012, rising to a total of €40.2 billion. The equity attributable to the shareholders increased to €38.8 billion (December 31, 2012: €37.9 billion). The currency adjusted increase of €0.7 billion reflects the positive net profit of €0.6 billion. The equity ratio for the Group was 22.5% (December 31, 2012: 22.7%); the equity ratio for the industrial business was 38.3% (December 31, 2012: 39.8%). The equity ratios for 2012 are adjusted by the dividend payment for the 2012 financial year. Provisions increased to €25.0 billion (December 31, 2012: €24.5 billion), and account for 15% of the balance sheet total, as in the previous year. They are comprised in particular of the provisions for pensions and similar obligations (€11.3 billion) as well as the provisions for product warranties (€5.0 billion), for personnel and social costs (€2.9 billion), and for income taxes (€2.0 billion). Financing liabilities rose by €2.6 billion to €78.8 billion. The currency-adjusted increase of €2.0 billion is attributable mainly to the growing leasing and sales-financing business. Of the total financing liabilities, 50% comprise bonds, 25% liabilities to financial institutions, 16% deposits in the direct banking business, and 6% liabilities from ABS transactions. Trade payables increased to €10.2 billion due to the production progress during the year (December 31, 2012: €8.8 billion).

Inventories increased by €1.2 billion to €19.0 billion and account for 11% of the balance sheet total, as in the previous year. The launch of new models, particularly in the MercedesBenz Cars division, led to an increase in finished goods by €0.9 billion to €14.1 billion.

Other financial liabilities decreased by €0.3 billion to €8.1 billion. They mainly consist of liabilities for residual value guarantees, down-payments received, liabilities from wages and salaries, derivative financial instruments, and accrued interest on financing liabilities.

Trade receivables rose due to higher unit sales by €0.5 billion to €8.1 billion.

Other liabilities of €6.1 billion (December 31, 2012: €5.7 billion) are comprised primarily of deferred tax liabilities, income tax liabilities and deferred income.

Cash and cash equivalents increased by €0.4 billion compared to the 2012 year-end to a total of €11.4 billion. Marketable debt securities rose from €5.6 billion at December 31, 2012 to €6.3 billion. They consist of debt instruments traded in an active market and are allocated to liquidity. The debt instruments generally have an external rating of ‘‘A’’ or better.

Further information on the Group’s assets, equity and liabilities is provided in the Consolidated Statement of Financial Position Ê 5.03, the Consolidated Statement of Changes in Equity Ê 5.04 and the respective notes in the Notes to the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements.

Other financial assets decreased by €0.1 billion to €5.9 billion. They principally comprise investments, among others, in Renault and Nissan, derivative financial instruments and credits and other receivables due from third parties. Other assets, which totaled €6.8 billion (December 31, 2012: 6.3 billion) primarily comprise deferred tax assets and tax refund claims.

Workforce

Important events

At the end of the first quarter of 2013 Daimler had a workforce of 274,555 employees worldwide (end of Q1 2012: 274,127). The total included 166,265 employees in Germany (end of Q1 2012: 168,017); 21,702 in the USA (end of Q1 2012: 21,520), 14,622 in Brazil (end of Q1 2012: 14,737) and 11,242 in Japan (end of Q1 2012: 11,344). At the end of the first quarter, our consolidated subsidiaries in China operated with 1,743 employees (end of Q 1 2012: 2,269). The headcount change in China resulted from the transfer of the sales organizations in the passenger car unit in a non-consolidated joint venture. In addition, employees with sales functions in South Africa who were previously allocated to the Mercedes-Benz Cars division are now reported under the sales organization.

Changes in the Supervisory Board and the Board of Management The Annual Shareholders’ Meeting of Daimler AG on April 10, 2013 elected Andrea Jung to the Supervisory Board as successor to the departing member Lynton R. Wilson. She is elected as member of the Supervisory Board of Daimler AG until the end of the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting in 2018.

The Annual Shareholders’ Meeting of Daimler AG also extended the terms of office of Sari Baldauf and Dr. Jürgen Hambrecht as shareholders’ representatives to the Supervisory Board, respectively, by five years. Moreover, the employee representatives to the Supervisory Board were elected on March 13, 2013. Elke Tönjes-Werner and Wolfgang Nieke were elected as successors of the previous members Ansgar Osseforth and Uwe Werner. Sabine Maaßen succeeds Dr. Thomas Klebe as trade union representative to the Supervisory Board and Dr. Frank Weber will represent executive management in place of Prof. Dr. Heinrich Flegel. The election came into effect with the closing of the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on April 10, 2013. In February 2013, the Supervisory Board unanimously voted to extend the contract of Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of MercedesBenz Cars, until December 31, 2016. The contract of Prof. Dr. Thomas Weber, Management Board Member responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development was also extended until December 31, 2016. Andreas Renschler took over the Board of Management responsibility for Manufacturing and Procurement Mercedes-Benz Cars & Mercedes-Benz Vans effective from April 1, 2013. Concurrently, Dr. Wolfgang Bernhard took over the Board of Management responsibility for Daimler Trucks. Additional information is provided in the current Annual Report. Daimler AG acquires twelve-percent stake in BAIC Motor Daimler AG and Beijing Automotive Group (BAIC) will significantly deepen their already close strategic partnership: On February 1, 2013, representatives of the two companies signed a binding agreement, according to which Daimler will invest around €0.6 billion in BAIC Motor. BAIC Motor is the passenger car division of the BAIC Group, one of the leading automotive companies in China. This important strategic move comes ahead of an intention by BAIC Motor to launch an initial public offering in the future. The investment will be realized through the issuance of new Daimler shares corresponding to a twelve percent stake in BAIC Motor. The agreement must still be approved by the competent authorities. The permit for the closing of the transaction will take at least nine months to obtain.

3 ⏐ Interim Management Report

Events after the interim balance sheet date

Risk report

On March 27, 2013 the Extraordinary General Meeting of EADS approved the new management and shareholder structure. Subsequently, the shareholders’ pact concluded in the year 2000 was dissolved and replaced by a new shareholders’ pact without participation by Daimler on April 2, 2013. Concomitantly, EADS shares which were previously held by Daimler but were constructively allocable to the Dedalus investors were transferred to the Dedalus investors. With the dissolution of the previous shareholders’ pact, Daimler lost its significant influence in EADS. As a result of the loss of significant influence and the transfer of the EADS shares, on April 2 the EADS shares were remeasured with effect on earnings at the higher current stock price of the EADS share. Overall, income of approximately €2.9 billion will be posted to Group EBIT in the second quarter of 2013, allocable in equal parts to Daimler shareholders and the Dedalus investors. The amount comprises a book gain without an inflow of cash.

Daimler’s business divisions are exposed to a large number of risks, which are inextricably connected with entrepreneurial activity. With regard to the existing opportunities and risks, we refer to the statements made on pages 125 to 132 and on page 137 of our Annual Report as of December 31, 2012 as well as to the notes concerning forward-looking statements provided at the end of this Interim Report.

On April 16, 2013, the Group announced that it would sell its remaining stake of approximately 7.4% in EADS through an accelerated placement procedure. The sale, which took place on April 17, 2013 at an offer price of €37 per EADS share, will lead to estimated additional expenses of approximately €0.2 billion in Group EBIT in the second quarter of 2013, resulting from the decrease in the EADS stock price since April 2, 2013. The sale will bring a cash inflow of approximately €2.2 billion in the second quarter of 2013. Following the offering, Daimler does not hold any residual shares in EADS. Moreover, the Group has entered into cash-settled contracts with both Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley which will allow a certain upside participation in the EADS share price until the 2013 year-end.

At the beginning of the second quarter of 2013, the economic risks have been slightly mitigated but are in no way resolved. In the European Monetary Union (EMU), the latest upheavals on the financial markets show that the government debt crisis is far from over. Although the danger of the collapse of the Euro zone has become significantly less pronounced since last summer, a resurgence of the crisis cannot be ruled out. In addition to the problems of the small peripheral countries, the financial markets will be watching the upcoming developments in Italy and Spain. The far-reaching consequences of the fiscal cliff were avoided in the USA, but there is still significant need for action with respect to fiscal policy. This applies equally to the lifting of the government deficit ceiling and the design of the automatic budget cuts in the future. In China, the months ahead will show whether the initiated measures will actually lead to a resumption of a solid growth course. The geopolitical tensions in the Near and Middle East are nearly unchanged, as reflected in the high price volatility on the commodity markets, led by crude oil. The latest tensions on the Korean peninsula also give cause for uncertainty. Another potential source of risks lies in the extremely expansionary monetary policy of a number of central banks ‫ ޤ‬and that not only with respect to inflationary dangers or possible exchange rate distortions. In view of the relatively moderate development of the world economy, there is a surplus of globally available liquidity that is searching for channels and can lead to speculative bubbles and overheating of the markets.

13

Outlook At the start of the second quarter, the world economy is still performing significantly below its long-term growth trend. However, the early indicators such as the business and consumer climate, incoming orders or trade in goods give reason to hope that the global economy could gain some momentum in the quarters ahead, so that the first quarter of 2013 could mark the low point for the year. A decisive contributing factor will be whether the economy of the European Monetary Union can finally also begin to recover. However, even in the event of a moderate recovery in the second half of the year, the stagnation of economic performance at last year’s level will be a very challenging task for the EMU to deal with. If the disappointing development of the first quarter continues, a new decline will be unavoidable. The outlook in the USA is significantly more positive, but here too more buoyant development is hindered by austerity measures. After the previous forecast of 8% growth for China, the publication of 7.7% actual growth for the first quarter could lead to slightly lower expectations for the full year. Fortunately, Brazil and India are expected to post higher growth rates than in the previous year, although Brazil is coming out of the crisis with slower momentum than originally hoped. Assuming a general recovery in the industrial countries and emerging markets, this year, the world economy should grow by around 2.5%, up to a maximum of 3%. However, in view of the weak starting position and continuing risks, the further development of the world economy continues to be extremely fragile and will be susceptible to external disturbances. According to the current estimates, the worldwide demand for passenger cars should grow in the range of 2% to 4% in the current year, driven primarily by the continued strong increase in the demand in the USA and the further expanding Chinese market. While the growth rate in the US market is expected to be only in the single-digits, at a projected volume significantly in excess of 15 million units, this is to be the highest level of registrations in the last six years. The Chinese market could grow at a slightly higher rate thanks to the economic recovery. On the other hand, as a result of the continuing economic weakness, a decline is again expected on the West European market. Demand will thus continue to move around a 20-year low. The German market cannot decouple itself from this development and is expected to fall significantly short of the previous year’s level. A decline is also expected on the Japanese market, after the previous year’s level, which was unusually high as a result of the government buying incentives. With the exception of China, the growth prospects for the passenger car markets in the large BRIC states tend to be rather modest. Growth in India will probably weaken significantly compared to the previous year. Vehicle sales in Russia should show another moderate increase.

14

According to the current status, global demand for mediumduty and heavy-duty trucks is expected to grow perceptibly in 2013. However, this depends very decisively on the development of the world’s biggest market, China, which should experience a perceptible recovery in demand; however, the start of the year proved to be below the expectations. The demand in North America should stabilize in the coming months. However, from the current perspective we expect a market drop of up to 5% for the full year. In view of the continued weak economic environment, we expect a drop of around 5% under the previous year’s level for the European truck market. The market volume in Japan could drop by up to 5% below the level of the prior year; the possible effects of the new economic package of the Japanese government are still difficult to assess. A moderate recovery and growth by as much as 10% are expected for the Brazilian market, thanks to the improved economic outlook and favorable financing conditions. The Russian market has already returned to near-pre-crisis levels and is expected to grow again moderately in the year 2013. On the other hand, a drop in truck demand is expected for India due to the continued belowaverage economic momentum. After the weak development in the European vans market in the first quarter of 2013, we are expecting a step-wise recovery of demand in the remaining quarters of the current year, and a decrease of around 5% for the full year. Continued weak demand is expected for the countries in Southern Europe. The outlook for the USA is positive: There we expect another increase in the market for large vans. The market for large vans in Latin America is expected to grow again after the significant decline in the previous year. In China, we expect a slight recovery in the market addressed by us. In Western Europe we expect market volume for buses in the magnitude of the previous year. The demand for buses in Latin America is expected to increase moderately after the significant decline in the year 2012. The market for buses in Brazil is expected to recover in the medium-term, also under the aspect of the upcoming world soccer championship in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016. On the basis of the planning of the divisions, Daimler expects another increase in its total unit sales in the year 2013. Mercedes-Benz Cars is consistently moving ahead with the ‘‘Mercedes-Benz 2020’’ offensive. Numerous model changes and new products are to ensure that the division will achieve yet another record in unit sales in the year 2013. The new models in the high-volume compact car segment will make a major contribution to sales growth. After the successful start of the A-Class and B-Class, in the middle of April 2013, the fourdoor CLA coupé came on the market as the third model based on the new compact car architecture. The extensively revised new E-Class sedan and station wagon are also available at Mercedes-Benz sales & service outlets and sales partners since April. From June 2013, the new E-Class coupés and convertibles will also provide added sales momentum. The electrically driven, locally emission-free super sports car SLS AMG Coupé Electric Drive will come on the market in June 2013. MercedesBenz expects significant growth in the luxury segment for the second half of 2013, due mainly to the launch of the all-new S-Class. As the most important new model of the year 2013, the new S-Class equipped with trailblazing innovations will

3 ⏐ Interim Management Report

set new standards of comfortable and safe driving under the umbrella term ‘‘Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive’’. In addition, the Mercedes-Benz brand will continue to profit from the market success of the models in the SUV segment in 2013. The smart brand sees a good chance that the unique two-seater can continue to defy its advancing life cycle in the highly competitive micro-car segment in 2013 and can achieve unit sales in the previous year’s range again. Daimler Trucks expects a slight increase in unit sales for the current year. In the first half of the year, however, the continued weak state of the economy will probably lead to a rather modest or even negative development of unit sales in a number of core markets. The extensive product offensive, which is now largely complete in all relevant regions, will provide a counterbalance for the difficult economic conditions. As a result of this offensive, we are in a very good starting position: In Europe, sales will get added impetus from the full product range of Actros, Antos and the new Arocs for the construction sector, as well as the new Atego, that is already in line with Euro VI standards significantly before the effective date of the regulation. We will maintain our competitive position in the NAFTA region with our excellent vehicle offering in combination with strong Detroit components. A convincing sales argument in favor of the Freightliner Cascadia Evolution, for example, is the optimization of the vehicle aerodynamics and power train, which yields additional fuel savings of 5% compared to its predecessor, the previous benchmark on the market. Our Fuso and BharatBenz brands will continue to make an important contribution to sales growth in 2013. In future, trucks of the Fuso brand will also be produced in Chennai and exported to the Asian markets outside India and to Africa. The Fuso Canter and his hybrid versions, which are also produced in Europe since 2012, should provide additional stimuli for demand. In addition, we will bring additional models of our BharatBenz truck on the market in India and will continue to expand the sales and service network. In Russia and China we are progressively expanding the collaboration with our local partners Kamaz and Foton and are thus creating the conditions for further exploitation of these growth markets.

Daimler Buses expects a significant increase in unit sales for the year 2013, with an increase in bus chassis as a percentage of total unit sales. We expect a significant recovery of demand for the year 2013, especially for Latin America. We expect stable development at a persistently weak level for the complete bus business in Europe. Daimler Financial Services expects a further increase of new business and contract volume for the full year 2013. After the significant increase in the year 2012, we expect that Daimler Group revenue will further increase in the full year 2013. In the regions, we expect above-average growth rates in the emerging markets and in North America. On the basis of the planned new models, the increasing effects of the efficiency programs that we have initiated and the assumptions made for the development of markets important to Daimler, we expect earnings to improve in the second half of 2013 compared with the level of the first half. Due to the fact that there will be no further equity-method results from EADS in the course of the year as well as lowered market expectations and the weaker than expected EBIT in the first quarter, Group EBIT from the ongoing business in full-year 2013 is expected to be below the previous year's level. Mercedes-Benz Cars anticipates full year EBIT below the level of 2012. Daimler Trucks and Mercedes-Benz Vans expect EBIT from ongoing business in the magnitude of the prior year, while Daimler Buses should exceed the EBIT for 2012. In 2014 and the following years, we expect an improvement in operating profit for all automotive divisions and for the Group. For Daimler Financial Services we anticipate a stable development of earnings in the next two years. From today’s perspective we assume that the number of employees worldwide will remain largely stable compared to the 2012 year-end.

Mercedes-Benz Vans expects to achieve an increase in unit sales for the year 2013. On the product side, the new MercedesBenz Citan and ‫ ޤ‬from mid 2013 ‫ ޤ‬the new generation of the Sprinter should also contribute to sales and earnings. Moreover, the start of local production of the Sprinter Classic in Russia from the second quarter of 2013 should enable us to continue to increase our unit sales in this growth market.

Employees (March 31)

New record for first-quarter unit sales Mercedes-Benz Cars posted yet another high level of unit sales in the first quarter of 2013. Total sales of the passenger car division climbed to 341,500 units (Q1 2012: 338,300). Firstquarter revenue dropped by 6% to €14.1 billion. EBIT amounted to €460 million (Q1 2012: €1,230). Despite the difficult start of the automotive market in 2013, which fell short of the expectations, Mercedes-Benz Cars was able to gain market shares through the great success of the new compact class. First-quarter sales in the strongly lagging German market totaled 61,100 units (Q1 2012: 64,700); and 149,700 units in Western Europe (Q1 2012: 156,300). Vehicle deliveries to end customers in the USA totaled 71,500 units since January (+12%), thus giving the company the strongest first quarter in that country to date. The wholesale volume in the USA decreased slightly. Mercedes-Benz Cars posted strong sales months in the first quarter in Russia (+9%) and Japan (+7%). In China, the first quarter was dominated by the reorganization of the sales & marketing structures and the upcoming model changes. Unit sales were above the production-related low level of the previous year (+9%). Strong show for new compacts and SUVs The new compacts of the Mercedes-Benz model series performed especially well in the first quarter, with sales of 79,200 A-Class and B-Class vehicles from January to March (+52%). The successful development of the SUVs with the star also continued with first-quarter sales of 72,100 units worldwide (+18%). New sales records were posted by the GLK, the GL, the M-Class and the G-Class. Our smart fortwo sales from January to March totaled 26,400 units (Q1 2012: 27,300). Model offensive in luxury-class and compact segment Mercedes-Benz launched its broad-based product offensive in the luxury class segment with the world premiere of the new E-Class at the North American International Auto Show. Many new assistance systems from the future S-Class are already

Germany

available in all E-Class models ‫ ޤ‬bundled under the heading ‘‘Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive’’. Another significant improvement was ensured by the powerful new BlueDIRECT fourcylinder gasoline engines with direct injection technology. The E-Class has thus now reached efficiency Class A. MercedesBenz also premiered the new CLA-Class in Detroit. Equipped with the world’s best aerodynamics (cw 0.22), an avant-garde coupé design and a 4MATIC all-wheel drive, the CLA is in a segment of its own. Emission-free with a star Locally emission-free electric vehicles are a key component of the Mercedes-Benz strategy for sustainable mobility. The new B-Class Electric Drive celebrated its world debut at the New York Auto Show at the end of March. Thanks to its high-torque electric motor and powerful battery, the B-Class Electric Drive guarantees locally emission-free driving pleasure with a range of 200 km. Its generous and variable interior makes it into a highvalue recreation and family car with many uses. The B-Class Electric Drive can be ordered in the USA from the fall. Fit for Leadership program progressing as planned The generation of measures in the framework of the Fit for Leadership efficiency and growth program is progressing as planned. Efficiency measures will increasingly lead to positive effects in the results during the year. Successful launches and high capacity utilization at the plants The first quarter of 2013 saw the launches of important new, top-quality products of Mercedes-Benz: The new four-door compact Coupé CLA is being produced at the Kecskemét Plant since January 2013. In Sindelfingen, production of the new E-Class began in March. Passenger car production continues with very good capacity utilization. To enable fulfilling all customer wishes, numerous special shifts are being added.

Unit sales below previous year’s level Unit sales of Daimler Trucks decreased by 6% to 101,400 units in the first quarter. Revenue reached €7.0 billion (-5%). EBIT amounted to €116 million (Q1 2012: €376 million). Unite sales affected by weak market development The continued strained economic situation in Western Europe led to a drop in demand in the segment of medium- and heavyduty trucks. At 12,000 vehicles, our sales here were 8% down on the previous year. At 3%, the unit sales decrease was more moderate in Germany. We continue to be the clear market leader in both Western Europe and in the core market of Germany, with market shares of 22.5% and 41.2%, respectively. In Eastern Europe, truck sales were impacted particularly by the fall in demand in Turkey. At 30,600 vehicles sold, our unit sales in the NAFTA Region were 6% lower than in the previous year. The weaker development of the market is attributable to its relatively high level of the previous year. On the other hand, it also resulted from impending decisions in connection with the government deficit in the USA. We nevertheless again managed to increase our market share in classes 6‫ޤ‬8 from 37.0% to 43.6%. As expected, the market in Latin America moved on a course of moderate recovery, and our unit sales there rose by 31% to 13,000 units. A significant cooling off was evident in the Asian market, where unit sales dropped by 12% to 35,200 units. In the demanding competitive environment, the recently announced economic stimulus package in Japan has not yet brought a significant impetus. Implementation of concrete measures with Daimler Trucks #1 In the beginning of the year, we announced workforce measures at several locations with a view to adapting our capacities to the lower demand in the NAFTA region and improving our structural cost position in Europe and Brazil. In addition, we are implementing a new business model for Asia, with which we will bundle and optimize our activities on that continent. The goal is to realize growth and synergy potential in Procurement, Production and Sales, as well as in the product portfolio.

Accordingly, in future we will also produce trucks of the Fuso brand in the Indian city of Chennai, which we will then export to markets outside India, primarily to Asia and Africa. Daimler Trucks completes Euro VI offensive With the presentation of the new Arocs for construction uses as the third variant of the new heavy-duty series, and the new Atego, Daimler Trucks completes its Euro VI range significantly ahead of the effective date of the regulation at the turn of the year. Modular strategy also implemented in new Cascadia The Gaggenau Plant is now also producing transmissions for use in the Freightliner Cascadia. With the “DT12” automatic transmission Daimler Trucks has taken yet another step in the modular and common parts strategy since the PowerShift models are already being built into the new Actros and the Fuso Super Great. A further development of the proven Freightliner truck that is in production since the beginning of 2013, the Cascadia Evolution, is starting on the market with 5% more fuel economy than its predecessor ‫ ޤ‬which held the previous benchmark on the US market ‫ ޤ‬achieved through optimization in the vehicle aerodynamics and power train. Expansion of the BharatBenz Model Range Since February, in addition to the heavy-duty models from 25 to 31 tonnes, medium-duty trucks from 9 to 12 tonnes are also available in India. Thus, Daimler Trucks is successively rolling out the broad-based portfolio of trucks “Made in India”. The new medium-duty models will set new standards on India’s roads with their efficiency and dynamics. Successful start for Chinese Joint Venture In China, we hold a 50% interest in Beijing Foton Daimler Automotive Co., Ltd. (BFDA), a joint venture with Beiqi Foton Motor Co, Ltd. In the reporting period, BFDA sold 23,000 vehicles under the Auman brand name.

Revenue and EBIT impacted by market decline in Western Europe Despite the difficult market environment in Western Europe, unit sales of Mercedes-Benz Vans increased slightly in the first quarter of 2013 to 52,600 units (Q1 2012: 51,200). Revenue decreased slightly to €2.0 billion (Q1 2012: €2.1 billion). EBIT amounted to €81 million (Q1 2012: €167 million). Mercedes-Benz Vans on growth course in USA, Latin America and Russia The decline in the demand for mid-sized and large vans on the West European markets also continued in the first quarter of 2013, as expected. Thanks to the new city van Citan, which was received positively by the market, Mercedes-Benz Vans managed to nearly offset the weaker sales number of the established model series Sprinter, Vito and Viano; at 32,600 units sales in Western Europe were slightly below the previous year’s level (Q1 2012: 34,400). Russia continues to be our growth driver in Eastern Europe; we sold 5,200 vans in this region (Q1 2012: 4,600). The development of unit sales outside Europe remained positive: In Latin America, we posted significant double-digit growth of 39% compared to the prior-year period with sales of 4,100 units. The launch of the current Sprinter generation has been followed by a continuous increase in the sales volume in that country. In the USA, Mercedes-Benz Vans grew sales by 12% to 4,000 units in the first three months of the year. In the dynamic Chinese market, Mercedes-Benz Vans more than doubled its unit sales compared to the same quarter in the previous year.

Germany

Our sales of the Sprinter in the first quarter of 2013 totaled 31,300 units worldwide (Q1 2012: 32,700 units). For the Vito and Viano models we posted a sales decline to 16,600 units (Q1 2012: 17,900). The new city van Citan accounted for 4,100 units. Mercedes-Benz Vans again sets new safety standards In the spring, Mercedes-Benz Vans showed how safe vans will be in the near future and set new standards in this class with five new assistance systems. Three systems celebrated their world debut in vans: the Crosswind Assist, Distance Control Assist and Blindspot Assist. Supplemented by the High-Beam and Lane Assist, all safety systems will be available in our vans soon. Mercedes-Benz Vans is thus underscoring its role as safety technology pioneer and innovation driver. New R&D center inaugurated at Fujian Benz in China Mercedes-Benz Vans celebrated a milestone in the global growth strategy ‘‘Vans goes global’’ at the end of March with the official opening of the new research and development center of the Chinese van joint venture ‘‘Fujian Benz Automotive Corporation’’ in Fuzhou. This is the first R&D center of the Van division outside Germany. It is equipped with a test track, test benches, exhaust emission laboratory and endurance run workshop facility, among others. The focus is on the vehicles which MercedesBenz Vans produces and sells locally in China: Sprinter, Vito and Viano. Citan is ‘‘Van of the Year’’ in Spain It has hardly come on the market and has already been crowned with an award: The new city van Mercedes-Benz Citan has been voted ‘‘Van of the Year’’ in Spain. The jury panel of a reputable Spanish auto magazine included more than 190 fleet specialists from the largest transport and intra-company transport operations in Spain. The Citan won with a big edge over four other competitors in the small vans category.

Unit sales, revenue and EBIT exceed prior-year level In the first quarter of 2013, Daimler Buses grew global sales by 23% to 6,000 units due to the rising demand for bus chassis in Latin America. The complete bus business in Western Europe was below the prior-year level. Revenue increased by 3% to €751 million (Q1 2012: €730 million). However, the changed model mix following the repositioning of the North American business system had a dampening effect on revenue growth. EBIT improved to minus €31 million (Q1 2012: minus €105 million). Stronger demand in Latin America supports overall positive unit sales development First-quarter sales in Western Europe amounted to 500 complete buses and bus chassis of the Mercedes-Benz and Setra brands (Q1 2012: 600). The city bus business posted new growth while unit sales in the coach business decreased. In Germany Daimler Buses increased sales by 11% to 200 units. Following the repositioning of the North American business system in 2012, our sales in the NAFTA region fell back to 400 units (Q1 2012: 600 units), as expected.

New Sales & Marketing structure for Germany At the start of 2013, a new Sales & Marketing structure went into effect for Germany. Thus, the responsibility for the sales & marketing of Mercedes-Benz and Setra in Germany, as in all other core markets, is now combined into one function. Series start of ComfortClass 500 Series production of the first ComfortClass 500 coaches began in February 2013. The first customer deliveries also began in the same month with an S 517 HD. With the Setra ComfortClass 500, Daimler Buses presented the first complete coach concept in the world to be developed completely in line with Euro VI requirements at the end of last year. Bus business in India integrated in Daimler India Commercial Vehicles To enable increased utilization of synergy effects between Daimler Trucks and Daimler Buses, we are bundling the bus and commercial vehicle activities in India under the umbrella of Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV). DICV will also take over responsibility for the local Marketing and Sales & Services activities of Mercedes-Benz Buses.

Latin America and especially the biggest market in the region, Brazil, showed the expected recovery in the first quarter of 2013. Accordingly, we sold 4,100 bus chassis of the MercedesBenz brand with growth of 48% compared to the previous year.

5 ⏐ Interim Consolidated Financial Statements

Notes to the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

1. Presentation of the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements General. These unaudited interim consolidated financial statements (interim financial statements) of Daimler AG and its subsidiaries (‘‘Daimler’’ or ‘‘the Group’’) have been prepared in accordance with Section 37x Subsection 3 of the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG) and International Accounting Standard (IAS) 34 Interim Financial Reporting. The interim financial statements comply with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted by the European Union. Daimler AG is a stock corporation organized under the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. Daimler AG is entered in the Commercial Register of the Stuttgart District Court under No. HRB 19360 and its registered office is located at Mercedesstraße 137, 70327 Stuttgart, Germany. The interim financial statements of the Daimler Group are presented in euros (€). Unless otherwise stated, all amounts are stated in millions of euros. All figures shown are rounded in accordance with standard business rounding principles. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. In the opinion of the management, the interim financial statements reflect all adjustments (i.e. normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations and the financial position of the Group. Operating results for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for any future period or for the full fiscal year. The interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the December 31, 2012 audited and published IFRS consolidated financial statements and notes thereto --- except the subsequently discussed adjustments of the prior period values. The accounting policies applied by the Group in these interim financial statements are principally the same as those applied in the audited IFRS consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2012.

Commercial practice with respect to certain products manufactured by Daimler necessitates that sales financing, including leasing alternatives, be made available to the Group’s customers. Accordingly, the Group’s consolidated financial statements are also significantly influenced by the activities of its financial services business. To enhance readers’ understanding of the Group’s financial position, cash flows and operating results, the accompanying interim consolidated financial statements also present information with respect to the Group’s industrial business and Daimler Financial Services business activities. Such information, however, is not required by IFRS and is not intended to, and does not represent the separate IFRS results of operations, cash flows and financial position of the Group’s industrial business or Daimler Financial Services business activities. Eliminations of the effects of transactions between the industrial business and the Daimler Financial Services business have generally been allocated to the industrial business columns. Preparation of interim financial statements in conformity with IFRS requires management to make estimates, assessments and assumptions which can affect the amounts and reporting of assets and liabilities, the reporting of contingent assets and liabilities at the balance sheet date and the amounts of income and expense reported for the period. Actual amounts can differ from those estimates. Changes in the estimates, assessments and assumptions can have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements. Prior period adjustments. In June 2011 IASB published the revisions to IAS 19 ‘‘Employee Benefits’’, which were subsequently endorsed by the EU in June 2012. The revised standard IAS 19 requires full retrospective application, with limited exceptions, in annual financial statements for financial years beginning on or after January 1, 2013. Consequently, Daimler has adjusted the figures reported for the previous year by the effects arising from the revisions of IAS 19.

27

At Daimler, the revisions of IAS 19 lead to the following significant effects.

The effects on the consolidated statement of income for the period from January 1 to March 31, 2012 are presented in the following table:

Pensions and similar obligations. The Group has previously used the corridor method, which is no longer permitted under the revised IAS 19. As a result, actuarial gains and losses have a direct effect on the consolidated statement of financial positions and lead to an increase in the provisions for pensions and similar obligations and a reduction in equity. Going forward, the consolidated statement of income will remain free from the effects of actuarial gains and losses, which will be recognized immediately in other comprehensive income. Moreover, the net interest cost approach for discounting the net pension obligation at the rate used for the measurement of the gross pension obligation will be applied. Since the net pension obligation is reduced by any plan assets, for discounting plan assets the same discount rate is assumed. Obligations for part-time early retirement. As a result of the revised definition of termination benefits provided in IAS 19, the top-up amounts agreed in the framework of the part-time early retirement agreements now represent other long-term employee benefits. The pro-rata accumulation of top-up amounts over the relevant active service period of employees who receive part-time early retirement benefits leads to a reduction in the provisions for part-time early retirement. The following table shows the effects of the application of IAS 19 on the line items of the consolidated statement of financial position as of January 1, 2012 as well as December 31, 2012.

Diluted and undiluted earnings per share had decreased by €0.02 in Q1 2013. The conversion to the revised IAS 19 led to a review of the calculation of the pension obligations for part-time early retirement benefits. Subsequently, the obligations from the outstanding settlement amount pursuant to IAS 8.42 recorded as of December 31, 2012 and January 1, 2012 were adjusted by €58 million and €48 million, respectively. The effects on the consolidated statement of income and earnings per share in Q1 2012 are not material. 28

5 ⏐ Interim Consolidated Financial Statements

Application of IFRS 13. In May 2011, IASB published IFRS 13 ‘‘Fair Value Measurement’’, which combines the regulations for fair value measurement that were previously contained in the individual IFRS into a single standard and replaces them with a uniform IFRS framework for measuring fair value. IFRS 13 must be applied prospectively for financial years which begin on or after January 1, 2013. The initial application of the standard does not lead to significant changes in the measurement of assets and liabilities. Changes are required in the consolidated notes, according to which the disclosures on the fair values of financial instruments and classification of financial instruments, which previously had to be made only in the year-end financial statements, now also have to be made in the interim reports. Further information is provided in Note 16.

3. Functional costs Optimization programs. Measures and programs with implementation costs that materially impact EBIT of the segments are briefly described below: Daimler Trucks. At the end of January 2013, Daimler Trucks announced workforce adjustments as part of its goal to increase its profitability by stronger utilization of scale effects. In Brazil, approximately 1,400 production employees have already been reemployed following the current layoff, in the administrative sector a reduction of approximately 850 people is expected, for which a voluntary redundancy program has already been started. Furthermore, in non-productive areas in Germany a headcount reduction of approximately 800 employees is planned, which is to be achieved by means of socially acceptable voluntary measures. Daimler Buses. In 2012 Daimler Buses decided to restructure some sections of its business system to improve efficiency and generate growth in order to increase the market shares of buses in Western Europe, to adapt the product portfolios to changed market requirements and to reduce cost positions. These measures also included a reduction of up to 10% of the workforce in Western Europe. Furthermore, the Board of Management decided to restructure the activities of Daimler Buses in North America. In this context, the production of Orion city buses was discontinued and the workforce was scaled down by about 900 employees. In addition, further optimization measures were initiated in non-productive areas in Brazil for which a voluntary redundancy program has already been started. The following table shows the expenses related to the optimization programs which have had an effect on the EBIT of the segments. Furthermore, the table shows the cash outflows associated with the implementation of the programs.

EADS. On March 27, 2013 the Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting of EADS approved the new management and shareholder structure. Subsequently, the shareholders’ pact concluded in the year 2000 was dissolved and replaced by a new shareholders’ pact without participation by Daimler on April 2, 2013. Concomitantly, EADS shares which were previously held by Daimler but were constructively allocable to the Dedalus investors were transferred to the Dedalus investors. With the dissolution of the previous shareholders’ pact, Daimler lost its significant influence in EADS. As a result of the loss of significant influence and the transfer of the EADS shares, on April 2, 2013 the EADS shares were remeasured with effect on earnings at the higher current stock price of the EADS share. Overall, income of approximately €2.9 billion will be posted to Group EBIT in the second quarter of 2013, allocable in equal parts to Daimler shareholders and the Dedalus investors. The amount comprises a book gain without an inflow of cash. On April 16, 2013, the Group announced that it would sell its remaining stake of approximately 7.4% in EADS through an accelerated placement procedure. The sale, which took place on April 17, 2013 at an offer price of €37 per EADS share, will lead to estimated additional expenses of approximately €0.2 billion in Group EBIT in the second quarter of 2013, resulting from the decrease in the EADS stock price since April 2, 2013. The sale will bring a cash inflow of approximately €2.2 billion in the second quarter of 2013. Following the offering, Daimler does not hold any residual shares in EADS. Moreover, the Group has entered into cash-settled contracts with both Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley which will allow a certain upside participation in the EADS share price until the 2013 year-end.

Engine Holding. The control and profit transfer agreement with Tognum AG has been entered in the commercial register on December 19, 2012. Since January 1, 2013, Roll-Royce Holdings plc. (Rolls-Royce) assumed, as contractually agreed, control over Engine Holding and Engine Holding is included as a subsidiary company in the consolidated financial statements of Rolls-Royce. The decision of the regional court Frankfurt a. M. as of November 15, 2011 to transfer Tognum AG shares which are not already owned by Engine Holding against compensation (squeeze-out under takeover law) took effect in March 2013 and Engine Holding holds 100% of Tognum shares since then. The objections against the decision were withdrawn because the appeals’ representatives and Engine Holding agreed to an out-of-court settlement. The minority shareholders of Tognum AG, whose shares were transferred to Engine Holding in the context of the squeeze-out under takeover law, and the former shareholders of Tognum AG, who accepted the compensation of the control and profit transfer agreement effective at December 19, 2012, received a compensation of €31,61 according to the out-of-court settlement.

15. Legal proceedings As already reported, the DOJ and Daimler AG have been discussing a possible extension of the term of the Deferred Prosecution Agreement to align the Deferred Prosecution Agreements’ provisions more closely with the Monitor’s review period and to provide Daimler with additional time to improve the sustainability of its compliance systems. Based on these discussions and to complete the ongoing and vigorous remediation of certain challenges that have arisen, the DOJ, Daimler AG and Daimler North East Asia, Ltd. mutually agreed on March 30, 2012 to extend the terms of their respective Deferred Prosecution Agreement until December 31, 2012. On December 31, 2012, both deferred-prosecution agreements expired and the Honorable Louis J. Freeh completed his role as post-settlement monitor as planned on April 1, 2013.

16. Financial instruments The following table shows the carrying amounts and fair values of the Group’s financial instruments. The fair value of a financial instrument is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Given the varying influencing factors, the reported fair values can only be viewed as indicators of the prices that may actually be achieved on the market.

35

The fair values of financial instruments were calculated on the basis of market information available on the balance sheet date. The following methods and premises were used for financial instruments recognized at fair value: Marketable debt securities and other financial assets. Financial assets available for sale include: --- debt and equity instruments measured at fair value; these instruments were measured using quoted market prices at March 31. Otherwise, the fair value measurement of these debt and equity instruments is based on inputs that are either directly or indirectly observable on active markets. Equity instruments measured at fair value predominantly comprise the investments in Renault and Nissan. --- equity interests measured at cost; for these financial instruments fair values could not be determined because market prices or fair values are not available. These equity interests comprise investments in non-listed companies for which no objective evidence existed at the balance sheet date that these assets are impaired and whose fair values cannot be determined with sufficient reliability. It is assumed that the fair values approximate the carrying amounts. Daimler does not intend to sell the equity interests which are shown as of March 31, 2013.

Financial assets recognized at fair value through profit or loss include derivative financial instruments not used in hedge accounting. These financial instruments as well as derivative financial instruments used in hedge accounting comprise: --- derivative currency hedging contracts; the fair values of currency forwards and cross currency interest rate swaps are determined on the basis of the discounted estimated future cash flows using market interest rates appropriate to the remaining terms of the financial instruments. Currency options were measured using price quotations or option pricing models using market data. --- derivative interest rate hedging contracts; the fair values of interest rate hedging instruments (e.g. interest rate swaps) are calculated on the basis of the discounted estimated future cash flows using the market interest rates appropriate to the remaining terms of the financial instruments. --- derivative commodity hedging contracts; the fair values of commodity hedging contracts (e.g. commodity forwards) are determined on the basis of current reference prices in consideration of forward premiums and discounts. Financial assets recognized at fair value through profit and loss also include the option held by Daimler to sell shares in Engine Holding to Rolls-Royce. Other financial liabilities. Financial liabilities recognized at fair value through profit or loss comprise derivative financial instruments not used in hedge accounting. For information regarding these financial instruments as well as derivative financial instruments used in hedge accounting see the notes above under ‘‘Marketable debt securities and other financial assets.’’ At the end of each reporting period Daimler reviews the necessity of a reclassification between the fair value hierarchies. Table Ê 5.23 provides an overview of the classification of financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value in the fair value hierarchy.

The financial assets shown as classified as level 3 and presented in the table Ê 5.24 consist solely of Daimler’s option to sell the shares it holds in Engine Holding to Rolls-Royce. The fair value measurement for the Engine Holding put option will be carried out on the basis of a binomial model, with measurement on a quarterly basis. In the course of the valuation process the required market data will be collected through Bloomberg surveys and the non-observable parameters will be examined and updated as required on the basis of the internally available current information. In particular the premises of the company value of Engine Holding determined using the discounted cash flow method will be validated in each quarter. The results of the measurement of the Engine Holding put option, as well as any significant changes in the input parameters and their respective effects on the value of the option, will be reported to Management on a quarterly basis.

Description

Development of financial assets recognized at fair value through profit or loss classified as level 3 in millions of euros

5.25

Parameters with a significant influence on the measurement of the option are the value of Engine Holding as determined with the use of a discounted cash flow method and the expected volatility of that value. A sensitivity analysis shows that a 10% increase in the value of Engine Holding would lead to a reduction in the value of the option of €35 million. On the other hand, a 10% decrease in the value of Engine Holding would increase the value of the option by €46 million. A 10% increase in the expected volatility of the value of Engine Holding would lead to an increase in the value of the option of €41 million. However, a 10% decrease in the expected volatility of the value of Engine Holding would reduce the value of the option by €38 million.

Associated companies and joint ventures. Most of the goods and services supplied within the ordinary course of business between the Group and related parties comprise transactions with associated companies and joint ventures and are included in table Ê 5.28. A large proportion of the sales and purchases of goods and services with associated companies results from business relations with MBtech Group GmbH & Co. KGaA (MBtech Group), Engine Holding GmbH (Engine Holding) and/or Tognum AG (Tognum), which is a subsidiary of Engine Holding. Tognum purchases engines, parts and services from the Group. In connection with the Group’s 45% equity interest in Toll Collect GmbH, Daimler has provided a number of guarantees for Toll Collect, which are not included in table Ê 5.28 (€110 million as of March 31, 2013 and as of December 31, 2012). The transactions with joint ventures predominantly relate to the business relationship with Beijing Benz Automotive Co., Ltd. (BBAC). BBAC assembles and distributes Mercedes-Benz vehicles for the Group in China. To enable the Group to fully exploit the huge growth potential of the Chinese market and to intensify the cooperation with its local partner, Beijing Automotive Group Co., Ltd., Daimler has already contributed additional €0.1 billion equity to the Joint Venture BBAC as of December 31, 2012. In addition, Daimler plans to further contribute €0.3 billion equity to the Joint Venture. Additional funds needed by BBAC to fund its investments will be directly raised on capital markets by BBAC. In December 2012, the joint venture company Beijing MercedesBenz Sales Services Co., Ltd. (BMBS) was established by Daimler and its strategic partner Beijing Automotive Group (BAIC). The new car sales company bundles as a Management-Company all sales activities for imported and locally produced MercedesBenz cars in China. On February 1, 2013, Daimler, Beijing Automotive Group Co., Ltd. (BAIC Group) and BAIC Motor Corporation Ltd. (BAIC Motor) signed a binding agreement according to which Daimler will invest approximately €0.6 billion in BAIC Motor. BAIC Motor is the passenger car unit of BAIC Group, one of the leading automotive companies in China. The investment will take place through the issuance of new shares to Daimler representing a 12% stake in BAIC Motor. Daimler’s shareholding in BAIC Motor is subject to the approval of the relevant authorities. The approvals for the closing of the transaction will require at least nine months. The agreement includes the stipulation that Daimler will receive two seats on the board of directors of BAIC Motor. Furthermore, the two companies agreed that BAIC Motor will increase its stake in the joint venture Beijing Benz Automotive Co., Ltd. (BBAC) by 1% to 51%. At the same time, Daimler will increase its stake in the integrated sales joint venture Beijing Mercedes-Benz Sales Service Co., Ltd. by 1% to 51%.

In December 2011, the joint venture company Beijing Foton Daimler Automotive Co., Ltd. (BFDA) was established by Daimler and the Chinese truck manufacturer Beiqi Foton Motor Co., Ltd. Daimler has committed to making a cash contribution to the joint venture company and to establishing the production of a truck engine at BFDA. In 2012, capital of €344 million was injected. Further significant sales and purchases of goods and services relate to die Mercedes-Benz Österreich which distributes cars and spare parts of the Group. In March 2013, the remaining shares of the entity were acquired together with other Pappasgroup entities. The Group has also substantial business relations with the Chinese joint venture Fujian Benz Automotive Co. Ltd. (FBAC). FBAC produces and distributes vans under the Mercedes-Benz brand name in China. In the first quarter of 2013 a new product development center of Mercedes-Benz Vans in China was opened. A total of approximately € 60 million was invested in the new center. The joint ventures Mercedes-Benz Trucks Vostok OAO and Fuso Kamaz Trucks Rus Ltd., which have been established with Kamaz OAO, produce and distribute trucks of the MercedesBenz and Fuso brands in Russia. Furthermore, buses of the Mercedes-Benz and Setra brands are sold in Russia. As part of their strategic partnership, Daimler and Russian truck manufacturer Kamaz signed a contract in November 2012 covering the supply of engines and axles for the Russian company’s trucks and buses. In this way, the Group plans to expand its component network in Russia. See Note 12 for information on contributions to pension plan assets.
