Germany's Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) wrapped up its $2 billion acquisition of U.S. home dialysis maker NxStage Medical on Friday, according to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing. The closure - some 18 months after FMC agreed to buy NxStage - paves the way for the world's biggest provider of dialysis services to scale up its home dialysis business by investing in new infrastructure, patient training and education.

Germany's Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) said on Wednesday it has won the green light from U.S. regulators to acquire U.S. home dialysis equipment maker NxStage and expects the deal to close in the next few days. FMC agreed to buy NxStage in August 2017 for $2 billion but the deal has been held up due to competition concerns and most recently the U.S. government shutdown. "Very early this morning, we were notified the Federal Trade Commission has approved our NxStage deal," Chief Executive Rice Powell told reporters.
The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has given Germany's Fresenius Medical Care AG and U.S. home dialysis equipment maker NxStage Medical Inc antitrust approval for their merger, the agency said on Tuesday. To win approval for the $2 billion deal, the companies agreed to sell NxStage's bloodline tubing set business, the agency said. Fresenius and NxStage together dominate the market for the single-use plastic tubes used during dialysis, the agency said.
