BERLIN (Reuters) - German healthcare group Fresenius probably will not make any large acquisitions this year, the group’s chief executive officer said on Friday, adding that this was more likely from next year.

“I am certain there will be more large takeovers ... But when, exactly? I cannot say yet. Probably not this year; more likely from 2020,” Stephan Sturm told shareholders at the company’s annual general meeting.
