DGAP-AGM : Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA: Announcement -7-

04/07/2021 | 11:51am EDT
Therefore, around 70 % of the target direct compensation comprises performance-related variable compensation 
components. The 40 % share of the Long-Term Incentive (around 57 % of the variable components) reflects the long-term 
orientation of the compensation structure. 
The structure of the target direct compensation of the Management Board members who are active at the time of the 
adoption of the Compensation System 2021+ is orientated towards this general compensation structure. The specific base 
salary components range between 27 % and 30 % of the target direct compensation, the Short-Term Incentive (target 
amount) ranges between 27 % and 30 % and the Long-Term Incentive (grant value) ranges between 40 % and 46 % of the 
target direct compensation. The target amounts of the Short-Term Incentive and the grant values of the Long-Term 
Incentive are determined within the individual service agreements as a percentage of the respective base salary of a 
Management Board member. 
Based on the target direct compensation, additional fringe benefits and pension commitments are considered in the 
structure of the total target compensation. 
Fringe benefits are granted on the basis of the respective service agreement with Management Board members and 
therefore vary between the individual members of the Management Board. The amount of fringe benefits granted to the 
individual Management Board members regularly ranges between 1 % and 7 % of the respective target direct compensation, 
depending on the individual grant and usage, per fiscal year. This range is based on historical data and the individual 
fringe benefits granted under the current service agreement of the individual members of the Management Board. 
Management Board members may be granted pension commitments in the form of defined benefit or defined contribution 
plans. The amount of the current service cost from these pension commitments is regularly within a range of 7 % to 35 % 
of the respective target direct compensation of a Management Board member per fiscal year. The amount of the individual 
service cost depends to a large extent on the pensionable income and the age of the respective Management Board member 
as well as on actuarial assumptions, such as the discount rate, and is therefore more volatile. The range for the 
service cost of pension commitments is based on historical actuarial valuations and actuarial forecasts. 
3 Process of Determining, Reviewing and Implementing the Compensation System 
The Supervisory Board is responsible for determining the compensation of each Management Board member as well as for 
determining, reviewing and implementing the compensation system for the entire Management Board. The Supervisory Board 
is supported in this regard by its Human Resources Committee, a committee which is composed of members of the 
Supervisory Board. The Human Resources Committee also takes over the tasks of a compensation committee and makes 
recommendations to the Supervisory Board. The recommendations of the Human Resources Committee as well as any other 
matter relating to the individual compensation of the Management Board members and the compensation system are 
discussed and, as required, resolved by the Supervisory Board. The members of the Supervisory Board and its committees 
are under an obligation to disclose any conflicts of interest without undue delay. These regulations for an avoidance 
of conflicts of interest also apply to the process of determining the compensation of the individual Management Board 
members and to the process of determining, reviewing and implementing of the compensation system for the Management 
Board members. 
The Compensation System 2021+ was developed with the support of external compensation experts. The Supervisory Board 
may also in the future consult external compensation experts to support it in its determination of the compensation of 
Management Board members as well as with respect to the determination and review of the compensation system as a whole. 
Any such compensation expert is independent from the Company, the Management Board as well as the Company's affiliates. 
From time to time, any such compensation expert will be replaced in order to ensure an independent compensation review. 
The amount of the total target compensation of each Management Board member is determined by the Supervisory Board in 
accordance with the compensation system. In accordance with the requirements of the German Stock Corporation Act and 
the DCGK, care is taken to ensure that the respective compensation is in an appropriate relationship to the duties and 
performance of the Management Board member as well as to the performance of the Company, that it supports the long-term 
and sustainable development of Fresenius and that it does not exceed the usual compensation without special reasons. 
For this purpose, both external and internal comparative analyses are carried out. In addition, the total compensation 
granted to the individual members of the Management Board takes into account the interest of the Company to retain the 
members of the Management Board at the Company or to attract new potential talents for the Management Board. 
In order to assess the appropriateness of the compensation system and the individual compensation of the Management 
Board members, the Supervisory Board conducts a review of the respective amount and structure of the compensation by 
means of a horizontal analysis (external comparative analysis). The respective amount of the total target compensation 
and the underlying compensation components granted to the individual Management Board members are compared with the 
compensation data of DAX30 companies. 
The Supervisory Board also conducts a vertical review (internal comparative analysis) with respect to the compensation 
levels of the Company's employees when determining the compensation system and the compensation of the Management Board 
members. For this purpose, the ratios between the average compensation of the Management Board, the average 
compensation of the senior management of the Company and the total workforce are determined. For the purpose of the 
determination of the Compensation System 2021+, "senior management" has been defined as all employees who report to a 
Management Board member in a position of "Vice President" and above. The ratio is compared, to the extent possible, 
with the corresponding ratio for companies included in the DAX30. When conducting the vertical review, the Supervisory 
Board will also consider the development of the compensation levels over time. 
Any new compensation system for the Management Board members as resolved and intended to be applied by the Supervisory 
Board is presented to the General Meeting of the Company for approval. The Supervisory Board will regularly review the 
applied compensation system and, if required and typically upon recommendation of the Human Resources Committee, 
resolve changes thereto. In case of material changes, but at least every four (4) years, the compensation system is 
presented to the General Meeting for approval. Should the General Meeting not approve the presented compensation 
system, such compensation system will be reviewed and presented, at the latest, to the following ordinary General 
4 Compensation Components in Detail 
4.1 Fixed Compensation 
The fixed compensation granted to Management Board members under the Compensation System 2021+ comprises base salary, 
fringe benefits and a pension commitment. 
4.1.1 Base Salary 
The base salary, which is usually agreed for a full year, is paid in accordance with the local payroll customs 
applicable to the respective member of the Management Board. For Management Board members in Germany, the base salary 
is typically paid in twelve (12) monthly installments. 
4.1.2 Fringe Benefits 
Fringe benefits are granted based on the individual service agreements and can include: the private use of company 
cars, special payments such as school fees, housing, rent and relocation payments, costs for the operation of security 
alarm systems, contributions to pension insurance (with the exception of the pension commitments described in this 
document) and contributions for accident, health and nursing care insurance, other insurance policies, as well as tax 
equalization compensation due to different tax rates in Germany and, as the case may be, the country in which the 
Management Board member is personally taxable. Fringe benefits can be of one-time or recurring nature. 
In order to attract qualified candidates for the Management Board, the Supervisory Board may complement the 
compensation of first-time Management Board members in an appropriate and market-compliant manner with an entry bonus 
(sign-on bonus), e.g. to compensate for forfeited compensation from previous employment or service agreements. The 
Supervisory Board may also grant reimbursements for fees, charges and other costs in connection with or related to a 
change in the regular place of work of Management Board members. 
4.1.3 Pension Commitments 
Management Board members who have been appointed to the Management Board prior to 1 January 2020, were granted a 
contractual pension commitment in the form of a defined benefit scheme. Under this defined benefit scheme, pension 
commitments provide for pension and survivor benefits (Hinterbliebenenversorgung) as of the time of conclusively ending 
active work or in case of occupational disability or incapacity to work (Beruf- oder Erwerbsunfähigkeit). The amount of 
these benefits is calculated by reference to the amount of the contractually agreed pensionable income of the 
Management Board member. The pensionable income is adjusted annually based on the development of the consumer price 
index. The pension amount is calculated as 30 % of the contractually agreed pensionable income and increases by 1.5 
percentage points for each full year of service as a Management Board member, up to a maximum of 45 %. In deviation
