Does anybody know what it means when

A COMPANY HAS OUTPERFORMED THE DAX

I know that the DAX is the Deutsche Aktiengesellschaft, still it doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
I appreciate any comments, ideas and translations.

Deutscher Aktien Index


Explanation:

The DAX is not "Deutsche Aktiengesellschaft";

it's the DEUTSCHER AKTIEN INDEX (like e.g. DOW JONES, NASDAQ, EASDAQ, BEL20, NIKKEI INDEX, etc).
The company has done better than the DAX (stands at +/- 7500 points today)

Explanation:
Well, first off, DAX is the Deutsche Aktien*indeX*. That is a stock index like the Dow-Jones index. A company outperforms that index, if it's share price increase is higher than the Dax increase.
Anyone please correct me, if I'm wrong, thanks,
Cheerio,
Dierk
