Cautions regarding forward-looking statements.
This website contains forward-looking statements about our current assessment of future events. The words "anticipate", "assume", "believe", "estimate", "expect", "intend", "may", "plan,“ "project“, "should“ and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. These statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties.
Some examples for this are
- an unfavourable development of the global economic situation, especially a decline in demand in our most important sales markets,
- a deterioration in our refinancing options on the credit and financial markets,
- unavoidable events of force majeure, such as natural disasters, acts of terrorism, political unrest, armed conflicts, industrial accidents and their consequential effects on our sales, purchasing, production or financing activities,
- changes in exchange rates and customs regulations,
- a change in consumer behaviour towards smaller and less profitable vehicles or a possible loss of acceptance of our products and services with the consequence of an impairment in the enforcement of prices and in the utilisation of production capacities,
- price increases for fuels and raw materials,
- interruptions in production due to material bottlenecks, staff strikes or supplier insolvencies,
- a decline in the resale prices of used vehicles,
- the successful implementation of cost reduction and efficiency improvement measures,
- the business prospects of the companies in which we hold significant shares,
- the successful implementation of strategic cooperations and joint ventures,
- the changes in laws, regulations and official directives, especially insofar as they affect vehicle emissions, fuel consumption and safety,
- as well as the conclusion of ongoing official investigations or investigations initiated by authorities and the outcome of pending or threatening future legal proceedings
- and other risks and imponderables, some of which are described in the current annual report under the heading "Risk and Opportunity Report".
If any of these uncertainties or contingencies materialise, or if the assumptions underlying any of the forward-looking statements prove incorrect, then actual results may be materially different from those expressed or implied by such statements.
We neither intend nor assume any obligation to update forward-looking statements on an ongoing basis, as these are based solely on the circumstances on the date of publication.
The information and descriptions on these pages do not represent any kind of assurance or guarantee either expressed or implied. In particular they do not represent any implied assurance or guarantee concerning the condition, the merchantability, adequacy for a particular purpose or non-infringement of laws and patents.
Our Internet site contains links to external sites which are not under the control of Daimler. Please note, therefore, that we are not responsible for the contents of any linked site. Consequently, neither are we able to guarantee that the information provided on the external website is up-to-date, correct, complete or of the required integrity.
