Fresenius announces H1/2013 record results, raises 2013 Group earnings
guidance

Group sales increased by 8% (9% in constant currency) to EUR9,987 million
(H1/2012: EUR9,236 million). Organic sales growth was 5%. Acquisitions
contributed a further 5%. Divestitures reduced sales growth by 1%.

(H1/2012: EUR1,440 million). The EBIT margin of 14.5% (H1/2012: 15.6%) was
impacted by a margin decrease at Fresenius Medical Care as well as the
first-time consolidation of Fenwal. However, Q2/2013 margin of 14.8%
already showed a distinct improvement over Q1/2013 (14.2%).

Group net income** increased by 11% (12% in constant currency) to EUR482
million (H1/2012: EUR434 million). Group net income attributable to
shareholders of Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA including one-time integration
costs for Fenwal was EUR462 million or EUR2.59 per share.

Based on the Group's positive growth prospects for the second half of 2013,
Fresenius raises its full-year earnings guidance. The company now expects
net income*** to increase by 11% to 14% in constant currency. Previously,
Fresenius expected net income growth of 7% to 12% in constant currency. The
company fully confirms its sales guidance. Sales are expected to increase
by 7% to 10% in constant currency.

* 2013 excluding Fenwal integration costs (EUR27 million). 2012 excluding
