Transparency and communication

Fresenius adheres to all recommendations of clause 6 of the Code. Transparency is guaranteed by continuous communication with the public. In that way we are able to validate and deepen the trust given to us. Of particular importance to us is the equal treatment of all recipients. To ensure that all market recipients receive the same information at the same time, we post all important publications on our website in the “Investor Relations” section and under Who we are − Corporate Governance. These publications include financial reports and disclosures on directors’ dealings in accordance with Section 15a of the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG). We report in detail on our 2010 investor relations activities in the section on Fresenius shares under Investor Relations.
