    As far as I see, it is "best regards".

    Literally it is "with friendly greetings/wishes".

    Do you have any context? I do not see context in your link.

    It may be with context there is a better phrase.

    But that's not really a question to ask. You can easily look up this in a dictionary and you should do that first, according to the forum rules.

    The exception is, of course, if you have any further questions.

    You would use "Mit freundlichen Grüßen" as a complimentary close at the end of any kind of formal letter / business letter.
    So it corresponds to "Yours faithfully" / "Yours sincerely" in British English or to "Sincerely" / "Sincerely yours" / "Yours truly"/ ... in American English.

    "Regards" / "Best regards" is less formal than "Mit freundlichen Grüßen".
