About the Company: Engineering the Future since 1758

With a focus on transportation and engineering, MAN is one of Europe’s leading players in the commercial vehicle and mechanical engineering sectors.

MAN has 30 production sites in 13 countries. Outside Europe our activities are primarily concentrated in the BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India, and China), which are characterized by high growth rates. MAN has 54,283 employees in over 150 countries and includes the companies MAN Truck & Bus, MAN Latin America, MAN Diesel & Turbo, and Renk. In 2012 we reported revenue of approximately €15.8 billion and an operating profit of €964 million.

For more than 250 years now, MAN’s success has been guaranteed by its technological advances, innovative strength, and forward thinking. Time and again the Company has demonstrated its flexibility in the face of change and emerged from crises stronger than ever. As environmental and social developments present us with new challenges, we address them through our CR strategy for responsibility and sustainability.

Our business areas

MAN’s core business activities shape pioneering transportation and energy solutions that are both ecological and economical and meet the needs of customers and society. We concentrate on two high-growth business areas: Commercial Vehicles and Power Engineering. In the international commercial vehicle field, MAN is one of the leading providers of customer-oriented products and services worldwide. MAN Truck & Bus is expanding from its core market in Western Europe into the global growth markets. MAN Latin America is the market leader in Brazil and has access to an extensive sales and service network in the up-and-coming markets of South America and Africa.

As MAN’s second strategic business area, Power Engineering provides an effective counterbalance to the commercial vehicle business. MAN Diesel & Turbo is the world’s leading provider of large-bore diesel engines for deployment in ships and power plants and also specializes in the development and construction of compressors as well as gas and steam turbines. This business unit is supplemented by Renk, a globally recognized producer of high-quality special gear units.

MAN shares

On September 30, 2012, Volkswagen AG held 75.03% of MAN SE’s voting rights and 73.72% of its share capital. The free float for MAN’s common shares stood at approximately 25%. As part of its annual review, Deutsche Börse decided on the composition of its indices effective September 24, 2012. MAN’s common shares were transferred from the DAX 30 to the MDAX, which comprises 50 stocks, due to the low market capitalization of its free float. According to the Deutsche Börse’s indexing system, only the free float is considered when calculating market capitalization. In the case of MAN common shares, this amounted to a good €2.8 billion.

MAN enables its shareholders to participate appropriately in the Company’s success, bearing in mind the economic environment. The targeted share of profits distributed is generally 30% to 60% of MAN’s net income. The proposed dividend of €1.00 per share for fiscal 2012 is in keeping with the decline in earnings.
