DANAHER REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 2018 RESULTS
WASHINGTON, D.C., April 19, 2018 — Danaher Corporation (NYSE: DHR) today announced results for the first quarter 2018. For the quarter ended March 30, 2018, net earnings were $566.6 million, or $0.80 per diluted share which represents a 16.0% year-over-year increase.
Non-GAAP adjusted diluted net earnings per share were $0.99. This represents a 16.5% increase over the comparable 2017 period. For the first quarter 2018, revenues increased 11.5% year-over-year to $4.7 billion, with non-GAAP core revenue growth of 5.5%.
Operating cash flow for the first quarter 2018 was $828.9 million, representing a 48% increase over the comparable 2017 period. Non-GAAP free cash flow for the first quarter 2018 increased 72% year-over-year to $691.4 million, representing a non-GAAP free cash flow to net income conversion ratio for the first quarter 2018 of 122%.
For the second quarter 2018, the Company anticipates that diluted net earnings per share will be in the range of $0.88 to $0.91 and non-GAAP adjusted diluted net earnings per share will be in the range of $1.07 to $1.10.
For the full year 2018, the Company now anticipates that diluted net earnings per share will be in the range of $3.62 to $3.69. The Company now expects its 2018 non-GAAP adjusted diluted net earnings per share to be in the range of $4.38 to $4.45 versus previous guidance of $4.25 to $4.35.
Thomas P. Joyce, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are off to an outstanding start in 2018, with the first quarter coming in ahead of our initial expectations. We delivered 5.5% core revenue growth, mid-teens earnings per share growth and free cash flow that increased more than 70% year-on-year. This strong performance was broad-based, with four of our five platforms delivering mid-single digit or better core revenue growth — including 9.5% growth in Diagnostics, which was led by Cepheid. We also announced the acquisition of Integrated DNA Technologies, Inc. (“IDT”), a leading player in the highly attractive genomics consumables segment. We closed the IDT acquisition last week and are excited to welcome the IDT team to Danaher.”
Joyce continued, “Our great start to 2018 is a testament to the power of the Danaher Business System, strong execution by the Danaher team and our focus on long-term value creation. Our performance in the quarter — combined with significant opportunities across the portfolio and our solid balance sheet — positions us well for strong performance in 2018 and beyond.”
