Based on the Group’s excellent financial results, we intend to increase the dividend for 2012 and thus continue our earnings-linked dividend policy. For the 20th consecutive year, we are proposing to our shareholders a dividend increase to €1.10 (2011: €0.95) per share, an increase of 16% per share. The total proposed dividend distribution will be €196.0 million, equivalent to 21% of Group net income before special items. Based on the proposed dividend and the closing price of our share at the end of 2012, the dividend yield would be approximately 1.3%.

Fresenius shares are an attractive investment. Anyone who invested about €1,000 in Fresenius ordinary shares five years ago and reinvested the dividends would have increased their capital to €1,594 as of December 31, 2012. That is an average annual return of 11%.

We have added a total return calculator as a service on our website at under Investor Relations – Fresenius Share / ADR – Share Price. You can use the value calculator to determine the total return on your Fresenius shares, including dividend payments.
