Stock conversion and change of legal form

The change of legal form to Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA became effective with its entry in the Commercial Register Bad Homburg v. d. H. on January 28, 2011. In accordance with the resolution of the General Meeting and the articles of association of Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA, all the ordinary shares of Fresenius SE thereby became ordinary shares of Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA. At the same time, all nonvoting preference shares of Fresenius SE were mandatorily converted at a 1 : 1 exchange ratio into voting ordinary shares of Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA. The Company’s total share capital remained unchanged. Accordingly, the listing of the two classes of the Fresenius SE share was discontinued on January 28, 2011. The ordinary shares of Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA commenced trading on January 31, 2011.

With the stock conversion we have created a single share class. The simplified share structure strengthens Fresenius’ position in the capital market and increases the liquidity of the Fresenius share. A higher index weighting will consolidate the share’s position in the DAX and enables better access to the capital market. This considerably enhances Fresenius’ attractiveness and transparency for investors.
