In 2014, we expect to invest about 6% of sales in property, plant and equipment. About 50% of the capital expenditure planned will be invested at Fresenius Medical Care, about 25% at Fresenius Kabi, and about 25% at Fresenius Helios. At Fresenius Medical Care, investments will primarily be used for the expansion of production capacity, optimizing production costs, and the establishment of new dialysis clinics. Fresenius Kabi will primarily invest in expanding and maintaining production facilities as well as in introducing new manufacturing technologies. At Fresenius Helios, we will primarily be investing in the modernizing and equipping of existing and newly acquired 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 38% of total funds will be invested in Germany.

We assume that the return on operating assets (ROOA) and the return on invested capital (ROIC) will be below the level of 2013.
