Fresenius proposes three-for-one stock split 

Fresenius will propose a three-for-one stock split to its Annual General
Shareholder Meeting (AGM) on May 16, 2014. Under this proposal, the
subscribed capital and the number of shares will be tripled. This will be
accomplished by issuing new shares through the conversion of capital
reserves from company funds. Every shareholder will receive two additional
shares for each share held. The share price can be expected to adjust
itself without affecting the overall value for shareholders.

The Fresenius share price has more than tripled in the past 5 years and is
above EUR100. With the stock split, the Company would like to promote
trading activity and increase the stock's attractiveness for a broader
group of investors.

The AGM agenda will be published on April 2, 2014. In accordance with the
proposed stock split, the Company also proposes to adjust the existing
authorized capital and the conditional capitals as well as the
authorization to buy back shares.

The subscribed capital of Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA currently amounts to
EUR179,808,205, divided into 179,808,205 ordinary shares.
