Daimler shareholders fight over free sausages

Was this the Wurst AGM ever? A fight over free sausages has marred Daimler'south annual shareholders meeting.

Investors should've been cheered as the German automaker, which owns Mercedes and Smart, announced its highest ever dividend. But instead police were called to crack up the fight at Wednesday'south meeting.

According to a Daimler (DDAIF) spokeswoman, one male shareholder started placing several sausages into a box. "I suppose he wanted to get them home," she said.

It provoked ire from another shareholder, a woman, who told the man it wasn't the right thing to do.

A dispute ensued, culminating in the police being called and the female shareholder filing a complaint for slander.

"We'd 12.500 of these sausages for 5.500 investors attending the meeting," the spokeswoman said.

That'south over two sausages for each investor attending.

Demand could've been high since the sausages in question were "Saitenwuerschtle," a regional delicacy also known as a "Wiener" or "Frankfurter."

The spokeswoman said Daimler'south chairman will presently have to determine whether to expand the company'south order of sausages for the following annual common meeting, or to obtain rid of them altogether for fear of another frankfurter fracas.
