    EU antitrust regulators are reportedly set to authorize Baxter's (BAX) $4B acquisition of Sweden's Gambro after the U.S. firm offered to sell its global continuous renal replacement therapy operations, which account for approximately 2% of its renal product sales. Baxter has made the same offer to authorities in Australia and New Zealand. Acquisition of Gambro would turn Baxter into the second-largest manufacturer in the dialysis market. The EU is due to decide on the deal on July 22.

    More on Baxter (BAX) / Gambro deal: the acquisition, Baxter's largest ever, combines the second and third largest manufacturers of dialysis equipment, so it could arouse antitrust concerns. Baxter expects synergies of $300M a year by 2017, but says the deal will cut adjusted EPS by $0.10-$0.15 next year and be neutral or add to earnings in 2014, and then add to profit after that.
