Annual Guidance for 2011

Thermo Fisher is also initiating adjusted EPS and revenue guidance for the full year 2011. The company expects to achieve adjusted EPS in the range of $4.00 to $4.10 for 2011, which would result in 12% to 15% EPS growth over 2010. The company expects to achieve 2011 revenues in the range of $11.33 billion to $11.45 billion, for 5% to 6% revenue growth year over year.

The 2011 guidance does not include the acquisition of Dionex, as the transaction has not yet closed, nor does it include any other future acquisitions or divestitures and is based on current foreign exchange rates. In addition, the adjusted EPS estimate excludes amortization expense for acquisition-related intangible assets and certain other items detailed later in this press release under the heading “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

Management uses adjusted operating results to monitor and evaluate performance of the company’s business segments.
