Financial flexibility takes top priority in Fresenius Medical Care’s financial strategy besides optimizing the financing costs. The company ensures this flexibility by using a wide range of financial instruments and securing a high level of diversification regarding our investors and banks.
Our long-term debt consists mainly of term loans and bonds in Euro and U.S. dollar. In addition, Fresenius Medical Care uses an equity-neutral convertible bond and a syndicated credit agreement with revolving credit facilities in U.S. dollar and Euro. For short-term financing needs, we can use the revolving credit facilities as well as a commercial paper program, an accounts receivable facility and bilateral credit facilities.
