Hamburg, Germany (euro adhoc) - 20 January 2012 - Marseille-Kliniken AG could
improve its profitability in the first half of the 2011/2012 financial year (1
July through 31 December 2011) according to preliminary figures. EBIT rose by 56
percent to EUR 5.0 million (previous year: EUR 3.2 million). The occupancy rate
rose to 88.6 percent after an average of 87.1 percent in the past financial
year. Revenues increased slightly to EUR 96.4 million (previous year: EUR 95.2
million). "This further improvement of the profitability shows that our focusing
on the operational business could be successfully realized. We expect this
positive development to continue also in the whole financial year", says Michael
Thanheiser, chairman of Marseille-Kliniken AG.

In the previous financial year and in the first six months of the 2011/2012
financial year, Marseille-Kliniken AG reinforced its focus towards the core
competencies in inpatient and outpatient care for the elderly, strengthened its
quality leadership, and introduced a new, decentralised management structure.
Moreover a programme carried out to optimise costs also played a role in
supporting the company's economic recovery. Marseille-Kliniken AG operates a
total of 60 care facilities across Germany, with a sales capacity of 7,940 beds
on 31 December 2011.

Against the backdrop of the half yearly results, Marseille-Kliniken AG confirms
its forecast for the 2011/2012 financial year, which calls for a slight revenue
increase and Group EBIT of EUR 10.0 million, well above the previous year's
level. Most important aspect will remain the focusing on the core competency in
the nursing care business. Marseille-Kliniken AG will release the full results
for the first half of the 2011/2012 financial year on 8 February 2012. The
corresponding half yearly report will then be made available to the public on
the company's website at www.marseille-kliniken.com.
