We will continue to invest in our future growth. In 2012, we expect to invest about 5% of sales in property, plant and equipment, which will be roughly in line with the 2011 rate.

About 55% of the capital expenditure planned will be invested at Fresenius Medical Care, about 25% at Fresenius Kabi and more than 20% at Fresenius Helios. Investments at Fresenius Medical Care will focus on the construction of dialysis clinics, on expanding production capacities, and on cost optimization. Fresenius Kabi will invest in expanding and maintaining production facilities and in introducing new manufacturing technologies, enabling further improvements in production efficiency. An important project is the expansion of our production and logistics center in Friedberg, Germany. At Fresenius Helios we will primarily be investing in modernizing and equipping hospitals.

The regional focus of the Group’s investment spending will be on Europe and North America, which will account for about 55% and 30%, respectively. The remainder will be invested in Asia, Latin America, and Africa. About 35% of total funds will be invested in Germany.
