FRANKFURT, Feb 26 (Reuters) - German diversified healthcare group Fresenius SE & Co. proposed a dividend slightly above expectations, saying it had put in place a new payout policy linked to adjusted earnings per share growth.

The company said it would pay 1.1 euros ($1.45) per share, a touch above the 1.07 euros expected on average in a Reuters poll.

Adjusted net income in 2012 rose 22 percent to 938 million euros, ahead of the average estimate of 930 million euros in a Reuters poll.
