LAWRENCE, Mass., Aug. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NxStage Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXTM), a leading medical technology company focused on advancing renal care, today announced that its Board of Directors has unanimously approved a definitive agreement under which Fresenius Medical Care will acquire all of the outstanding shares of NxStage for $30.00 per share in a cash transaction valued at approximately $2 billion.

NxStage Medical, Inc. (PRNewsFoto/NxStage Medical, Inc.)

"I am very proud of the impact NxStage continues to have on advancing the standard of renal care for patients around the world," stated Jeffrey H. Burbank, Founder and CEO of NxStage. "We believe that the announced transaction with Fresenius Medical Care creates significant value for our shareholders and significant opportunities for our patients, customers, partners and employees. I'm excited about what this means for the future of our products and therapy, and for the patients who will receive greater access to them."

(Please refer to the Company's press release with Fresenius Medical Care issued earlier this morning.)

Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2017

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2017 increased 4 percent to $96.2 million, within its guidance range of $95 to $97 million, compared with revenue of $92.2 million for the second quarter of 2016.

The Company's revenue performance was driven by the Products Business, and more specifically, the System One segment, which consists of the Home and Critical Care markets. Home revenue increased 9 percent to $55.5 million for the second quarter of 2017 compared with revenue of $51.1 million for the second quarter of 2016. Critical Care revenue increased 6 percent to $19.9 million for the second quarter of 2017 compared with revenue of $18.7 million for the second quarter of 2016.

The Products Business generated $4.5 million of income from operations for the second quarter of 2017. Net loss attributable to NxStage Medical, Inc.'s stockholders was $2.1 million for the second quarter of 2017 compared with a net loss of $1.7 million for the second quarter of 2016.

The Company announced that early customer and patient feedback in the US at its NxStage Kidney Care centers on its next generation hemodialysis system has been very positive, consistent with use in the UK. This innovative system consists of new features and capabilities, including a new touchscreen user interface and integrated blood pressure monitor designed to enhance ease of use for patients performing home hemodialysis.

Burbank continued, "We continue to execute on key initiatives and advance our innovative pipeline."

Cancellation of Scheduled Conference Call

In light of the acquisition agreement between Fresenius Medical Care and NxStage, NxStage is no longer providing financial guidance and has canceled its previously announced conference call to discuss its financial results for the second quarter of 2017, which was scheduled for 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, August 9, 2017.

About the NxStage System One
The NxStage System One is the first and only truly portable hemodialysis system cleared specifically by the FDA for home hemodialysis and home nocturnal hemodialysis. Its simplicity and revolutionary size (just over a foot tall) are intended to allow convenient use in patients' homes and give patients the freedom to travel with their therapy. When combined with the NxStage PureFlow SL Dialysis Preparation System, patients are able to further simplify, using ordinary tap water to create dialysis fluid on-site on-demand. Unlike conventional hemodialysis systems, the System One requires no special infrastructure to operate. Under the guidance of their physician, patients can use the NxStage System One, with their trained partners, where, how and when it best meets their needs, including while they are sleeping - at home or on vacation and at a medically appropriate treatment frequency. In addition, NxStage's Nx2me Connected Health® platform collects important NxStage System One and patient information for flexible viewing, monitoring and reporting that may improve patient management and patient retention, as well as simplify alternative site care. The System One is also used to provide a range of flexible therapy options in more traditional care settings such as hospitals and dialysis centers. Its safety and performance have been demonstrated by experience with more than 14 million treatments with over 30 thousand patients around the world.  www.nxstage.com.
