For the use of products for home hemodialysis in the United States, NxStage has executed a second amended and restated National Service Provider Agreement with DaVita (the "Home Agreement").

The term of the Home Agreement extends through December 31, 2015, and thereafter automatically extends on a monthly basis unless terminated by either party.

"We are delighted to continue working with DaVita to expand patient access to our life-changing therapy," stated Jeffrey H. Burbank, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of NxStage Medical, Inc. "These agreements underscore the value and strength of NxStage's innovative technology and our commitment to delivering high quality products to our customers and their patients."

NxStage and DaVita also entered into an agreement covering the purchase of NxStage's System One and other products for acute inpatient therapy within the critical care market through December 31, 2015.

Lastly, NxStage's subsidiary, Medisystems, and DaVita extended the term of their Needle Purchase Agreement dated January 6, 2008 through at least December 31, 2014, although DaVita may by October 31, 2013 elect to extend this to December 31, 2015.
