2022 was a very special year for us, a challenging year in many ways - yet above all a successful first year for Daimler Truck as an independent listed company. Our strong results show that we managed our environment very well, be it the impact of Russia-Ukraine war, ongoing supply chain constraints or high inflation. We have made strong progress towards unlocking our profit potential, and we have also made further important steps regarding our ambition to lead sustainable transportation and to tackle climate change.

With an adjusted EBIT of €4.0 billion we took a major step forward in a challenging market environment with supply constraints and inflation, achieving a record level of EBIT for the Group. We were also able to continue our strong cash conversion. We want to pay our first dividend and establish an attractive capital allocation policy. We are on a journey to benchmark profitability, but there is still a way to go, especially on costs given the inflationary pressures. Our outlook shows that we will continue our self-help measures to improve our financials.
