I was also invited to the shareholders meeting, but couldnt go. Considering the dividends didnt go up a lot, I shouldve gone and at least taken the free food and drinks with me. <p>I hope that DCX will do better in the next year. Thing is that they are actually not doing bad, it is just the Mercedes Car Group that has absorbed all the profit. Reasons for that are the quality problems, the Smart financial crisis and the recalls of millions of vehicles.

I heard Schremp got a serious tounge lashing from the share-holders this year. Apparently more so than in years past.
