Fresenius SHARE - the employee participation program

The principle that employees should become shareholders, and thus co-owners of Fresenius, is at the heart of Fresenius SHARE. We strive to give you even more opportunities to integrate Fresenius shares into your long-term wealth creation strategy and let you participate in our joint success. This is why there are two components to the employee participation program:

Achieve goals - receive shares: If we reach our targets, we issue free Fresenius shares to our employees.

Invest – buy shares: You can now buy a Fresenius share package at special employee conditions – at a 60% discount.

What makes Fresenius SHARE special?

Opportunity through investment

You can buy Fresenius shares with Fresenius SHARE – at very attractive employee conditions. The investment is voluntary and if we reach our targets, we issue free shares – no strings attached!

Influence on targets

We have set ourselves four targets for Fresenius SHARE. As well as a financial target, non-financial targets also have their role to play, as these are just as important for the success of our company. What is more: you yourself have more power to shape the non-financial targets in your day-to-day work.

Tax allowance

Easy, attractive, tax-free: With Fresenius SHARE you benefit from significant tax-free allowances – you will generally not be taxed or pay social insurance contributions on your shares.

More security

For every (partially) achieved target, a certain sum of shares is issued – even if other targets are missed. This is a realistic reflection of our overall performance.

Fresenius SHARE: 1 + 1 = 2 oppor­tunities

Invest – buy shares

The principle: Once a year, you can buy a Fresenius share package worth around € 550 – with a 60% discount on the share price. So you only pay around € 220. After a two-year lock-up period, you are free to sell your shares.

Achieve goals - receive shares

The principle: Fresenius sets itself financial and non-financial targets for the business year. For every fully or partially achieved target, free Fresenius shares are issued to staff the following year. The free shares are paid into your securities account. After a two-year lock-up period, you are free to sell your shares.

Depositing shares

You need a securities account for your shares from Fresenius SHARE. This can be at any bank; the main thing is that it is in your name.
If you do not have a securities account yet, you can open one easily with our cooperation partner, Commerzbank; it is free, as long as you only hold shares in that account from Fresenius SHARE and the securities account is opened online via this link: www.commerzbank.de/mitarbeiterbeteiligung. If you already have a securities account at Commerzbank into which only shares from the previous profit-sharing scheme have been booked, this will remain free of charge.
