Highlights of the presentations
Kabi’s new leadership team will discuss some of the organizational and operational changes being implemented and provide greater transparency on the three growth vectors (i.e., BioPharma, Nutrition and MedTech) as well as the Pharma business where the company further builds up resilience.
Fresenius Kabi’s Nutrition business (2022 sales of €2.4bn) focuses on the fundamentally attractive market for Parenteral Nutrition (PN) and Enteral Nutrition (EN). Kabi’s Nutrition business holds leading positions in several key regions with a broad innovative portfolio of products including multi-chamber bags, lipids, amino acids, additives, sip and tube feeds, powders, and nutritional drugs. The portfolio offers robust potential from innovative products and an improved product and market mix. The company also sees significant geographic expansion opportunities, especially in China and the U.S. market.
Sales for Nutrition are expected to grow organically by 4 to 7% p.a. over the period 2022 to 2026. Fresenius Kabi targets stable EBIT margins at high level with upside potential.
Expand on MedTech
Expecting enhanced performance and value. Kabi’s MedTech business (2022 sales of €1.4bn) comprises an Infusion & Nutrition Systems (INS) unit and a Transfusion Medicine & Cell Therapies (TCT) unit. Through INS, the company provides a range of infusion pumps, IV access systems, nutritional systems and feeding tubes. Through TCT, Kabi offers a broad portfolio of products for blood collection, apheresis, plasma processing, autotransfusions and cell therapies.

Based on its portfolio and pipeline in Autoimmune and Anti-inflammatory Disorders (AIID) and Oncology, Kabi’s ambition is to outgrow the market. Scaling and driving vertical integration with mAbxience also offers a synergistic setup for margin improvements.
Sales for this business are projected to triple to quadruple over the period 2022 to 2026. Fresenius Kabi expects significantly improving EBIT margins and is committed to deliver EBITDA breakeven in 2024.
