Fresenius Medical Care Confirms Outlook on Targeted Earnings After Tax and revises its Outlook for Full Year 2011 Revenue

Bad Homburg, Germany, (PresseBox) - Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co. KGaA ("the company"; Frankfurt Stock Exchange: FME / New York Stock Exchange: FMS), the world's largest provider of dialysis products and services, today announced revised outlook for revenue to be approximately 1.0% to 2.0% below the US-Dollar 13 billion benchmark. The impact on the revenue is predominately due to significant weakening of the Euro and other currencies against the US-Dollar in the fourth quarter of 2011. Nevertheless, the company continues to confirm its earnings after tax target in US-Dollar although expectations are that the net income attributable to the company will be at the low end of the target range of US-Dollar 1,070-1,090 million, principally due to the additional one-time costs incurred in 2011 related to acquisitions.

Ben Lipps, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Management Board of Fresenius Medical Care: "The company is having another excellent year in 2011, meeting also the challenges of the reimbursement reform in the United States, growing our business substantially in all regions and managing the integration of a number of significant acquisitions."
