Annual General Meeting

Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held on May 17, 2013, in Frankfurt / Main. Approximately 74% of the share capital was represented.

During the AGM, the shareholders voted with a majority of more than 99% of the votes cast for the proposal made by the general partner and the Supervisory Board to increase the 2012 dividend by 16% to €1.10 per ordinary share. With a majority of approximately 91%, they approved a new Authorized Capital in the amount of up to €40.32 million. The previous Authorized Capital in the amount of up to €26.52 million was cancelled.

The shareholders further approved with a majority of approximately 99% a new stock-option program and a corresponding Conditional Capital.

Further resolutions included approval of changes to the compensation system of the members of the Management Board of the general partner and the approval of the Company’s annual financial statements. The resolutions on the approval of the Company’s annual financial statements, the creation of a new Authorized Capital, the cancellation of the previous Authorized Capital, and the new stock-option program alongside with the creation of a Conditional Capital required the approval of the general partner, which was duly given.

With regard to certain subject matters, legally required voting right exclusions exist for the general partner and in some instances for its sole shareholder, the Else Kröner-Fresenius- Stiftung. These pertain, for example, to the appointment of the Supervisory Board of Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA, the approval of the actions of the general partner and the members of the Supervisory Board, and the selection of the auditor. This guarantees that the remaining shareholders retain the sole authority to decide on these matters, especially those that pertain to the supervision of management.
