Annual & Special Corporate Meetings/Results Extraordinary General Meeting

Hamburg, Germany (euro adhoc) - 19 October 2012 - The extraordinary general
meeting of Marseille-Kliniken AG held today at its headquarter in Hamburg
approved all applications introduced by the company's administration with a
majority of more than 99 percent. The attending shareholders represented more
than 67 percent of the share capital.

With the approved shift from Regulated Market (Prime Standard) to Entry Standard
as part of the Open Market at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, Marseille-Kliniken
AG consistently resumes its strategic reorientation and internal reorganization.
The change reflects the company's recent development, as it owns a much leaner
competitive position after the business segments rehabilitation and acute care
have been disinvested or abandoned according to plan. Therefore the Entry
Standard appears to be the appropriate listing segment. The principal stock
market listing in Frankfurt and the respective trading hours will however remain

The company's streamlining is furthermore represented by an approved amendment
of the statutes for a future reduction of the supervisory board from previously
six to than three members. In this context following the extraordinary general
meeting today Messrs Uwe Bergheim and Prof. Dr. med. Matthias P. Schönermark
have already announced their intention to resign from office after the end of
the annual general meeting which is planned for 3 December 2012. Another
amendment of the statutes builds furthermore the basis for a future adjustment
and new regulation of the compensation for the members of the supervisory board.

Michael Thanheiser, chairman of Marseille-Kliniken AG, comments on the
resolutions of the extraordinary general meeting as follows: "We wanted to give
our shareholders the possibility to decide for their own about the adequate
listing segment. The clear vote for the shift to Entry Standard is consistent
with our company's recent development, as our strategic reorientation aims at
streamlining the business and realising increases in efficiency. The same
applies for the reduction of the supervisory board. Both resolutions of our
shareholders are therefore also a confirmation of our corporate strategy."
