Fresenius Medical Care delivers very strong second quarter results

  • Solid revenue growth continued
  • Significant net income growth
  • Exceptionally positive free cash flow development
  • Financial targets for FY2020 confirmed inclusive of anticipated COVID-19 effects

Rice Powell, Chief Executive Officer of Fresenius Medical Care, said: "As anticipated, we saw the COVID-19 pandemic spread globally in the second quarter and continue to rise in Latin America and the U.S. In this challenging environment, the wide-ranging measures we took at a very early stage to ensure the continuity and quality of care for our patients are continuing to pay off. Together with the tireless efforts of our employees, these steps have given Fresenius Medical Care a strong performance in the first half of the year. This validates our core value proposition and the resiliency of our business model, which is grounded in our vertical integration strategy. Against this background and the anticipated financial net effect from COVID-19, we confirm our outlook for the financial year 2020. We continue to monitor further impacts of the pandemic and potential restrictions in the different markets."

2020 targets confirmed: mid to high single digit growth rates

On the basis of the neutral net impact of COVID-19 in the first six months, Fresenius Medical Care continues to expect both revenue and net income to grow at a mid to high single digit rate in 2020. These targets are inclusive of anticipated COVID-19 effects, in constant currency, exclude special items3 and are based on the adjusted results 2019 including the effects of the operations of the NxStage acquisition and the IFRS 16 implementation.

Measures to contain COVID-19 continued

Fresenius Medical Care continued its wide-ranging measures to fight COVID-19 in the second quarter. Thanks to the comprehensive protective measures taken at an early stage, Fresenius Medical Care was also able to maintain operations in its more than 4,000 dialysis centers worldwide without significant interruptions and minimizing the impact on patients. This was also made possible thanks to the use of telehealth solutions, which were applied

The COVID-19 pandemic affected people with advanced kidney disease and the resulting severity of illness generated an increase in hospitalization and mortality rates. In addition, the pandemic caused an interruption in routine medical visits and necessary hospitalization for many patients with advanced Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) needing to consider renal

replacement therapy. These two factors impacted the year-on-year growth for the second quarter.

Expansion in home dialysis

The expansion of home dialysis is a major growth area for Fresenius Medical Care. In the second quarter, the home dialysis offering in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region was expanded. The now-completed integration of the NxStage home dialysis products portfolio in the EMEA region enables Fresenius Medical Care to offer even more patients at-home treatment and a wider choice of treatment methods.

In North America, the number of home dialysis treatments increased by 15% compared to Q2 2019, with home hemodialysis treatments growing by 41%. June 2020 was the strongest month on record with regard to the number of patients being trained for home dialysis. This development will be supported by the rollout of additional 100 transitional care units to assist patients transitioning between modalities or returning to dialysis from transplants.

Patients, Clinics and Employees

As of June 30, 2020, Fresenius Medical Care treated 347,683 patients in 4,036 dialysis clinics worldwide. At the end of the second quarter, the Company had 124,736 employees (full-time equivalents) worldwide, compared to 119,631 employees as of June 30, 2019.

Solid revenue and strong income growth

Revenue increased by 5% to EUR 4,557 million (+5% at constant currency), with organic growth of 4%. Health Care Services revenue rose by 5% to EUR 3,614 million (+4% at constant currency), mainly driven by growth in same market treatments and contributions from acquisitions. Health Care Products revenue grew by 6% and amounted to EUR 943 million (+7% at constant currency). This increase was mainly due to higher sales of products for acute care treatments and disposables for in-center dialysis.

In the first half of 2020 revenue rose by 7% to EUR 9,045 million (+6% at constant currency). Organic growth amounted to 4%. Health Care Services revenue grew by 6% to EUR 7,209 million (5% at constant currency). Health Care Products revenue rose by 8% to EUR 1,836 million (+8% at constant currency).

Page 3/9

Operating income increased by 26% to EUR 656 million (+24% at constant currency), resulting in an operating income margin of 14.4% (Q2 2019: 12.0%). Based on a strong underlying business performance, the increase in margin was largely due to the recovery of COVID-19 related negative effects experienced in the first quarter as well as ongoing cost saving measures.

Operating income for the first half increased by 14% to EUR 1,211 million (+12% at constant currency), resulting in a margin of 13.4% (H1 2019: 12.5%).

Net income1 grew by 38% to EUR 351 million (+36% at constant currency). Adjusted net income increased by 40% (+38% at constant currency). Basic earnings per share (EPS) increased by 43% to EUR 1.20 (+41% at constant currency), driven by the earnings effects described above coupled with a decrease in the average weighted shares outstanding.

In the first half of 2020, net income increased by 21% to EUR 634 million (+18% at constant currency). EPS rose by 25% to EUR 2.15 (+22% at constant currency).

Exceptional cash-flow development

Fresenius Medical Care generated EUR 2,319 million of operating cash flow (Q2 2019: EUR 852 million) resulting in a margin of 50.9% (Q2 2019: 19.6%). The increase was largely driven by the U.S. federal government advanced payments under the CARES Act. In the first half of 2020, operating cash flow increased to EUR 2,903 million (H1 2019: EUR 928 million).

Free cash flow (net cash used in operating activities, after capital expenditures, before acquisitions and investments) amounted to EUR 2,103 million (Q2 2019: EUR 559 million), resulting in a margin of 46.1% (Q2 2019: 12.9%). In the first half of 2020, the company generated a free cash flow of EUR 2,407 million (H1 2019: EUR 435 million).

Regional developments

In North America, revenue increased by 6% to EUR 3,240 million (+4% at constant currency, +4% organic). The increase was supported in particular by organic growth in the Dialysis and Care Coordination business and contributions from acquisitions. For the first half, North America revenue rose by 8% to EUR 6,426 million (+5% constant currency, +4% organic).

Operating income grew by 42% to EUR 609 million (39% at constant currency), resulting in a margin of 18.8 % (Q2 2019: 14.0%).

Page 4/9

For the first half, operating income rose by 34% to EUR 1,073 million (31% at constant currency), resulting in a margin of 16.7% (H1 2019: 13.5%).

For the first half, EMEA revenue rose by 5% to EUR 1,366 million (+6% at constant currency, +5% organic).

Operating income for the EMEA region decreased by 19% to EUR 78 million (-19% at constant currency), resulting in a margin of 11.3% (Q2 2019: 14.9%). The decrease in operating margin was mainly due to an unfavorable impact from an impairment of a license held by the joint venture with Vifor Pharma, based on an unfavorable clinical trial for the drug CCX-140. For the first half, operating income decreased by 24% to EUR 179 million (-23% at constant currency), resulting in a margin of 13.1% (H1 2019: 18.0%).

In Asia-Pacific, revenue decreased by 2% to EUR 450 million (-2% at constant currency, -1% organic). The growth was impacted by the effect of closed or sold clinics and a decrease in organic revenue in the Care Coordination business, driven by COVID-19. For the first half, revenue rose by 1% to EUR 893 million (stable at constant currency, +0% organic).

Operating income decreased by 9% to EUR 63 million (-10% at constant currency), resulting in a margin of 14.1% (Q2 2019: 15.1%).
