Item 8.01 Other Events.

As the Company reported previously, in January 2011, the European Commission (EC) commenced an investigation of all major European commercial vehicle manufacturers, including subsidiaries of the Company. In November 2014, the EC issued a Statement of Objections to the manufacturers, including DAF Trucks N.V., its subsidiary DAF Trucks Deutschland GmbH and the Company as their parent. The Statement of Objections is a procedural step in which the EC expressed its preliminary view that the manufacturers participated in anticompetitive practices in the European Union. The EC indicated it will seek to impose significant fines on the manufacturers. DAF is cooperating with the EC.

Based on recent developments, the Company will record a charge of €850 million ($945 million) in the first quarter of 2016. The Company will continue to evaluate the amount of the charge pending final resolution of the proceeding. The charge is not tax deductible. DAF Trucks N.V. has sufficient liquidity to fund a payment in the amount of the charge.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
