Renal Solutions, Inc. Announces Acquisition by Fresenius Medical Care
Date:11/29/2007

WARRENDALE, Pa., Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Renal Solutions, Inc. (RSI) announced today that the Company has been acquired by Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co. KGaA. RSI will continue operations as a wholly owned subsidiary of Fresenius Medical Care, the largest integrated global provider of dialysis products and services. Peter DeComo will continue to lead RSI operations in Warrendale, PA and Oklahoma City, OK.

Renal Solutions is the innovator in the field of sorbent dialysis therapy. The Company's sorbent technology is based on a more than 35-year history of proven dialysis therapy and enables flexible treatment options using only 6 liters of drinking water. RSI holds a number of key patents and other intellectual property related to sorbent dialysis therapy and has recently launched its Sorbent Management for Advanced Renal Replacement Therapy (SMARRT(TM)) platform.

SMARRT therapy utilizes a gentle, patient-driven technology backed by over 6 million treatments. It enables short, standard or extended duration hemodialysis therapy using only 6 liters of drinking water without requiring the use of a water treatment system. The small dialysate quantity made possible by sorbent technology provides an inherent volume safety not possible with conventional hemodialysis technology. At the same time, it creates a dialysate flow rate of up to 400 ml/min., enabling the provision of highly effective dialysis. Advanced sorbent cartridges contain specialized sorbent compounds that regenerate fresh, high purity dialysate, eliminating the need for complex and costly water purification systems.

"This acquisition validates the strategic importance of sorbent technology to the dialysis field," said Peter DeComo, President and CEO of Renal Solutions. "The combination of Renal Solutions and Fresenius Medical Care, the global leader in dialysis products and services, will maximize the value of sorbent therapy through rapid development of innovative products and services that would have been difficult to achieve as a small independent company," he continued. "The convergence of our respective resources will enhance the prospects for true innovative approaches, including portability and wearability, to further improve the service to patients requiring dialysis therapy worldwide."

RSI is currently commercializing the Allient(R) Sorbent Hemodialysis System for chronic and acute hemodialysis applications. The Allient System will be the first dialysis system to bring SMARRT technology to the market, opening new treatment options to dialysis professionals and patients.

The current RSI home use clinical study featuring the Allient System and sorbent technology will continue enrollment at multiple sites. The trial is designed to demonstrate patient ability to self-administer hemodialysis in the home using the FDA cleared system. In this research study, 25 dialysis participants will self-administer extended duration dialysis in the home.

Morgan Stanley served as advisor to Renal Solutions for the transaction.
