Item 8.01 Other Events.

In January 2011, the European Commission (“Commission”) opened an investigation of the competitive practices of all major European medium and heavy duty truck manufacturers. On November 20, 2014, the Commission issued a Statement of Objections to the manufacturers, including DAF Trucks N.V., its subsidiary DAF Trucks Deutschland GmbH and PACCAR Inc as their parent. The Statement of Objections is a procedural step in which the Commission expressed its preliminary view that the manufacturers had participated in anticompetitive practices in the European Union. The Commission indicated that it will seek to impose fines on the manufacturers. DAF is studying the Statement of Objections and will prepare a response. The Commission will review the manufacturers’ responses before issuing a decision. Any decision would be subject to appeal. The Company is unable to predict the outcome of this proceeding or to estimate the potential fine at this time.

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.
