The senior notes will be offered through a private placement to institutional investors and will be guaranteed jointly and severally by the company and its subsidiaries, Fresenius Medical Care Holdings, Inc. and Fresenius Medical Care Deutschland GmbH.

The proposed offering will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933. The senior notes will be offered in the U.S. to "qualified institutional buyers" (QIBs) pursuant to the exemption from registration under Rule 144A of the Securities Act, and in exempted "offshore transactions" pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The senior notes may not be offered or sold in the U.S. unless registered under the Securities Act or pursuant to an applicable exemption from registration requirements.
