DANAHER REPORTS RECORD FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR 2014 RESULTS

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 27, 2015 -- Danaher Corporation (NYSE:DHR) today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year 2014.

For the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2014, adjusted diluted net earnings per share were $1.04 on a non-GAAP basis, which reflects the adjustments identified in the attached reconciliation schedule. This represents an 8.3% increase over the comparable 2013 amount. On a GAAP basis, net earnings for the fourth quarter were $662 million, or $0.92 per share on a diluted basis. Revenues for the 2014 fourth quarter increased 3.0% to $5.4 billion with core revenues increasing 4.0%.

Net earnings for the full year 2014 were $2.6 billion, or $3.63 per share on a diluted basis. On a non-GAAP basis, which reflects the adjustments identified in the attached reconciliation schedule, full year 2014 adjusted diluted net earnings were $3.68 per share representing an increase of 7.6% over the comparable amount in 2013. Revenues for the full year 2014 increased 4.0% to $19.9 billion with core revenues increasing 3.5%.

The Company anticipates that non-GAAP, adjusted diluted net earnings per share for the first fiscal quarter of 2015 will be in the range of $0.90 to $0.94. The Company is also updating its full year 2015 adjusted diluted net earnings per share guidance, which is now expected to be in the range of $4.30 to $4.40, reflecting the adjustments identified on the attached reconciliation schedule. The strengthening of the US dollar since December is expected to reduce 2015 earnings by approximately $0.10 per share on a diluted basis. The Company anticipates offsetting $0.05 per share of this currency impact from savings associated with incremental fourth quarter 2014 productivity initiatives, recent acquisitions, and other actions. Core revenue for the full year 2015 is anticipated to grow between 3% and 4%.

Thomas P Joyce, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We delivered a strong finish to the year with core revenue growth exceeding our expectations. Our team executed well, using the tools of the Danaher Business System to gain market share while driving solid core margin expansion and record free cash flow generation. While cognizant of the current macroeconomic challenges, our investments in growth and productivity initiatives combined with a robust balance sheet give us confidence in our ability to outperform in 2015 and beyond.”
