Hamburg, Germany (euro adhoc) - 16 November 2011 - Marseille-Kliniken AG
confirms the statement made on 7 November 2011 on its performance in the first
quarter of the financial year 2011/2012. In the first three months of the
current financial year (1 July to 30 September 2011) Group net profit rose
fivefold from EUR 0.3 million to EUR 1.5 million. The occupancy rate improved by
1.4 percentage points to 88.5%, beating last year´s average of 87.1%. Revenues
were stable at EUR 48.2 million (previous year: EUR 49.1 million). "The
performance in the first quarter of 2011/2012 shows that our strategic
realignment not only had a positive impact on earnings for the 2010/2011
financial year, but that it is still visible in the current figures. We expect
these positive developments to continue for the full financial year," said
Michael Thanheiser, Chairman of Marseille-Kliniken AG.

In the last financial year 2010/2011 Marseille-Kliniken AG pursed its strategic
reorientation by focusing on its core competences in inpatient and outpatient
nursing care for the elderly, strengthening its quality leadership and
introducing a new decentralised management structure (the regional manager
structure). Building on these foundations, total expenses were cut from EUR 49.4
million to EUR 46.4 million in the first quarter of 2011/2012. One specific
example was the previously loss-making facility AMARITA Hamburg-Mitte, which
reached break-even in the first quarter of 2011/2012.Revenues came to EUR 46.9
million in the first quarter of last year, not including the loss-making
Montabaur site, which was sold in October 2010. On a like-for-like basis for the
continuing operations, overall revenues went up by around EUR 1.3 million, which
further underlines the improvement in Marseille-Kliniken AG´s results.
Marseille-Kliniken AG operates 60 nursing facilities throughout Germany, with a
headline capacity of 7,960 beds. 

In view of the first quarter´s earnings, Marseille-Kliniken AG affirms its
forecast for the current financial year 2011/2012 of Group EBIT well above last
year´s and a slight increase in revenues. Furthermore, the strategic focus will
be on optimising the core nursing business and improving the financing
