In the fiscal year 2009, no loans or advance payments of future compensation components were made to members of the Management Board of Fresenius SE.

As far as legally permitted, Fresenius SE undertook to indemnify the members of the Management Board against claims against them arising out of their work for the Company and its affiliates, if such claims exceed their responsibilities under German law. To secure such obligations, the Company concluded a Directors’ & Officers’ insurance with an appropriate excess. The indemnity applies for the time in which each member of the Management Board is in office and for claims in this connection after the ending of the membership of the Management Board in each case.

At December 31, 2007, Andreas Gaddum resigned from the Management Board of Fresenius SE. Until the expiration of his service agreement on June 30, 2008, he received his stipulated non-performance-related compensation in an amount of € 162,500 as well as related benefits and a performance- related compensation on a pro rata basis according to the service agreement. For the period from July 1, 2008 to June 30, 2009, Andreas Gaddum obtained a waiting allowance of € 262,500 for the agreed non-competition clause.

Based on these agreements and on pension commitments, to former members of the Management Board, € 875 thousand and € 1,386 thousand were paid in the years 2009 and 2008, respectively. The benefit obligation for these persons amounted to € 9,878 thousand in 2009 (2008: € 10,056 thousand).
