CEO comments:

"Capio Nordic and Capio Germany continued with good margin improvement
- in Capio France all but four out of 22 hospitals have together
fully compensated for the government's price reduction and two
national strikes in the private healthcare sector."

We have a clear strategy and focus: In continental Europe, Modern
Medicine is driving Rapid Recovery with shorter treatment times and a
higher proportion of outpatient treatments. In the Nordics, Modern
Management will increase the direct patient time for medical staff
thus driving higher productivity through empowered people.

In financial terms this translates for the Group into 2.9% organic
sales growth for the full year (2.7% in the quarter) and an
improvement in adjusted operating result (EBITA) of 8.8% (-1,1% in
the quarter). The operating margin was 4.4% in 2015 (4.1% in

In the Nordics the focus is on more patient time for doctors and
nurses through less administrative duties. Several projects are
currently under implementation in order to speed up this development
in 2016.

Organic sales growth was 4.6% for the full year (4.1% in the quarter)
and the adjusted operating result (EBITA) was up 20.6% (22.5% in the
quarter). There was good sales growth and positive development of
operating results in Capio St. G?ran's Hospital, Specialist Clinics
and Norway. In order to increase productivity (more visits per doctor
and nurse) within Proximity Care, a program has been initiated during
the fourth quarter resulting in a staff reduction of 90 FTEs (out of
~2,000), of which the majority relates to temporary staff positions.
The number of listed patients is foreseen to remain stable or grow
slightly. Half the program is effective from January 2016 and the
remaining reductions are planned to come gradually over the year.

In France the number of patients operated on increased by 2.2%,
including a 6.1% outpatient growth and a -5.0% inpatient decrease in
2015. This means that we are successful in Rapid Recovery moving
patients from in- to outpatient treatments in line with our strategy.
The share of outpatients operated on increased by 2 p.p. compared to
2014 and corresponded to 67% out of the total number of patients
operated on. The average outpatient surgery rate in French hospitals
was 45% in 2014. We have also seen that the average length of stay
(AVLOS) is continuing to decrease with 2.9% for comparable DRGs
(Diagnosis Related Groups) within MSO (Medicine, Surgery and
Obstetric) during the year. The total patient growth of almost 4% has
been achieved with only a 2% increase in staff.

The newly opened Belharra hospital in Bayonne has developed according
to plan. The ongoing integration of the Parisis hospital impacted the
result negatively during the second half of the year with the bulk of
the integration costs now taken. In the fourth quarter there was a
short political strike among doctors protesting against certain
government actions.

The French government made an unusually large general price reduction
of 2.5% on medical sales from March 1, 2015. In December the
Government also withdrew an expected price reimbursement, which also
impacted the quarter negatively. All but four hospitals out of 22
have together fully compensated for the negative effects from both
prices and strikes during the year. These four hospitals, where the
Tonkin hospital in Lyon and the C?dres hospital in Toulouse are the
most significant, are under intense treatment of organization,
management and medical development resulting in higher productivity.

Organic sales growth in Capio France of 0.7% in 2015 (0.9% in the
quarter) included the above mentioned effects and the strike effects
in the first and fourth quarters. In 2015, the adjusted operating
result (EBITA) was down with 8.9% (-32.0% in the quarter) also
reflecting the above mentioned effects.

In Germany the organic sales growth was 2.0% for the full year (2.1%
in the quarter) and operating result (EBITA) was up with 34.5% in
2015 (68.4% in the quarter), reflecting mainly an improved
performance in the Dannenberg hospital.
