Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA - AG% 28 Augusut 2020

General: The AGM is to be held in the form of a virtual AGM in accordance with the German Law to Mitigate the Consequences of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The physical presence of shareholders or their authorised proxies is not possible. The voting rights may therefore be exercised solely by postal vote or by granting authority to the proxies designated by the Company.

Item 1: Unlike at German stock corporations, shareholders of a KGaA are legally required to vote on the annual accounts. We have no concerns and recommend shareholders to approve the Company's annual accounts.

We have no concerns over the agenda items at this year's AGM.
