Danaher Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2022 Results

Danaher Corporation (NYSE: DHR) (the "Company") today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year 2022.  All results in this release reflect only continuing operations unless otherwise noted.  Net earnings refers to net earnings attributable to common shareholders.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2022 , net earnings were $2.2 billion , or $2.99 per diluted common share which represents a 25.0% year-over-year increase from the comparable 2021 period.  Non-GAAP adjusted diluted net earnings per common share were $2.87 which represents a 6.5% increase over the comparable 2021 period.

Revenues increased 2.5% year-over-year in the fourth quarter of 2022 to $8.4 billion .  Non-GAAP core revenue growth was 7.5%, including 7.5% non-GAAP base business core revenue growth.

For the full year 2022, net earnings were $7.1 billion , or $9.66 per diluted common share which represents a 13.5% year-over-year increase.  Non-GAAP adjusted diluted net earnings per common share for the year were $10.95 , which represents a 9.0% increase over the comparable 2021 amount.

Revenues for the full year 2022 increased 7.0% to $31.5 billion .  Non-GAAP core revenue growth was 9.5%, including 8.0% non-GAAP base business core revenue growth.

Operating cash flow for the full year 2022 was $8.5 billion and non-GAAP free cash flow was $7.4 billion .

The Company provides forecasted sales only on a non-GAAP basis because of the difficulty in estimating the other components of GAAP revenue, such as currency translation, acquisitions and divested product lines.

Starting with the first quarter 2023, the Company will revise its definition of base business core growth to exclude revenues related to COVID-19 testing, vaccines and therapeutics, in addition to the exclusion of currency translation, acquisitions and divested product lines.

For the first quarter 2023, the Company anticipates that non-GAAP base business core revenue growth will be up mid-single digits.  For the full year 2023, the Company anticipates non-GAAP base business core revenue to be up high-single digits.

Rainer M. Blair , President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "2022 was another great year for Danaher. Broad-based strength across the portfolio helped us deliver nearly 10% core revenue growth and double-digit earnings per share growth.  Our team executed well in a challenging operating environment, enabling us to expand operating margins and generate strong cash flows.  We believe this strong execution, paired with our investments in innovation drove market share gains in many of our businesses."

Blair continued, "Looking ahead, we believe the combination of our leading portfolio, the power of the Danaher Business System and the strength of our balance sheet position Danaher to continue generating sustainable, long-term shareholder value for many years to come."

Danaher will discuss its results during its quarterly investor conference call today starting at 8:00 a.m. ET . The call and an accompanying slide presentation will be webcast on the "Investors" section of Danaher's website, www.danaher.com , under the subheading "Events & Presentations" and additional materials will be posted to the same section of Danaher's website.  A replay of the webcast will be available in the same section of Danaher's website shortly after the conclusion of the presentation and will remain available until the next quarterly earnings call.

C

Costs incurred in the three-month period and year ended December 31, 2022 related to preparation for the anticipated separation of the Company's Environmental & Applied Solutions business primarily related to professional fees for legal, tax, finance and information technology services ($9 million pretax as reported in this line item, $8 million after-tax).



D

Impairment charges related to technology and customer relationships in the Environmental & Applied Solutions segment recorded in the year ended December 31, 2022 ($9 million pretax as reported in this line item, $7 million after-tax).  Additionally, in the year ended December 31, 2022 charges incurred primarily related to impairments of accounts receivable and inventory as well as accruals for contractual obligations in Russia ($43 million pretax as reported in this line item, $40 million after-tax).  Impairment charges related to a trade name in the Diagnostics segment recorded in the year ended December 31, 2021 ($10 million pretax as reported in this line item, $8 million after-tax).



E

Loss on a partial settlement of a defined benefit plan as a result of the transfer of a portion of the Company's non-U.S. pension liabilities related to one defined benefit plan to a third-party in the year ended December 31, 2022 ($10 million pretax as reported in this line item, $9 million after-tax).



F

Costs incurred for fair value adjustments to inventory related to the acquisition of Aldevron in the three-month period ended December 31, 2021 ($13 million pretax as reported in this line item, $10 million after-tax).  Costs incurred for fair value adjustments to inventory and deferred revenue and transaction costs deemed significant related to the acquisitions of Cytiva and Aldevron in the year ended December 31, 2021 ($104 million pretax as reported in this line item, $82 million after-tax).



G

Gain on disposition of certain product lines in the year ended December 31, 2021 ($13 million pretax as reported in this line item, $10 million after-tax).



H

Expense related to the modification and partial termination of a prior commercial arrangement and resolution of the associated litigation in the year ended December 31, 2021 ($547 million pretax as reported in this line item, $415 million after-tax).



I

Loss on early extinguishment of debt resulting from "make-whole" payments and deferred costs associated with the retirement of the 2025 Euronotes in both the three-month period and the year ended December 31, 2021 ($96 million pretax as reported in this line item, $73 million after-tax).



J

This line item reflects the aggregate tax effect of all nontax adjustments reflected in the preceding line items of the table.  In addition, the footnotes above indicate the after-tax amount of each individual adjustment item.  Danaher estimates the tax effect of each adjustment item by applying Danaher's overall estimated effective tax rate to the pretax amount, unless the nature of the item and/or the tax jurisdiction in which the item has been recorded requires application of a specific tax rate or tax treatment, in which case the tax effect of such item is estimated by applying such specific tax rate or tax treatment.  The MCPS dividends are not tax deductible and therefore the tax effect of the adjustments does not include any tax impact of the MCPS dividends.



K

Discrete tax adjustments and other tax-related adjustments for both the three-month period and year ended December 31, 2022, include the impact of net discrete tax benefits of $452 million and $504 million, respectively, due principally to net deferred tax benefits resulting from legal and operational actions undertaken to realign certain of its businesses, as well as excess tax benefits from stock-based compensation, the release of reserves for uncertain tax positions due to the expiration of statutes of limitation and audit settlements and changes in estimates related to prior year tax filing positions, net of changes in estimates associated with prior period uncertain tax positions.  Discrete tax adjustments for both the three-month and year ended December 31, 2021, include the impact of net discrete tax benefits of  $120 million and $263 million, respectively, related primarily to release of reserves for uncertain tax positions due to the expiration of statutes of limitation and audit settlements, excess tax benefits from stock-based compensation and the mix of earnings between the U.S. and certain jurisdictions with lower overall tax rates, net of changes in estimates associated with prior period uncertain tax positions.  The Company anticipates excess tax benefits from stock compensation of approximately $7 million per quarter and therefore excludes benefits in excess of this amount in the calculation of adjusted diluted net earnings from continuing operations per common share.



L

In March 2019, the Company issued $1.65 billion in aggregate liquidation preference of 4.75% MCPS Series A.  In May 2020, the Company issued $1.72 billion in aggregate liquidation preference of 5.0% MCPS Series B.  Dividends on the MCPS Series A were, and on the Series B are, payable on a cumulative basis at an annual rate of 4.75% and 5.0%, respectively, on the liquidation preference of $1,000 per share.  Each share of MCPS Series A converted on April 15, 2022 into 6.6632 shares of Danaher's common stock.  Unless earlier converted, each share of MCPS Series B will automatically convert on April 15, 2023 into between 5.0156 and 6.1441 shares of Danaher's common stock, subject to further anti-dilution adjustments.  The number of shares of Danaher's common stock issuable on conversion of the MCPS will be determined based on the volume weighted average price ("VWAP") per share of the Company's common stock over the 20 consecutive trading day period beginning on, and including, the 21st scheduled trading day immediately before April 15, 2023 for the MCPS Series B.  For the calculation of net earnings per common share from continuing operations, the impact of the dilutive MCPS is calculated under the if-converted method and the related MCPS dividends are excluded.  For the purposes of calculating adjusted earnings per common share from continuing operations, the Company has excluded the paid and anticipated MCPS cash dividends and assumed the "if-converted" method of share dilution (the incremental shares of common stock deemed outstanding applying the "if-converted" method of calculating share dilution only with respect to any MCPS the conversion of which would be dilutive in the particular period are referred to as the "Converted Shares") for any MCPS that were anti-dilutive for the given period.  For additional information about the impact of the MCPS on the calculation of diluted EPS, see note 2 in the Adjusted Average Common Stock and Common Equivalent Diluted Shares Outstanding table below.

The impact of the MCPS Series A calculated under the if-converted method was dilutive for the year ended December 31, 2022 and the three-month period and year ended December 31, 2021, and as such 3.0 million shares, 11.0 million shares and 11.0 million shares, respectively, underlying the MCPS Series A were included in the calculation of diluted EPS in the periods and the related MCPS Series A dividends of $20 million, $20 million and $78 million were excluded from the calculation of net earnings for diluted EPS for the respective periods.


The impact of the MCPS Series B calculated under the if-converted method was dilutive for the three-month period ended December 31, 2022, and as such 8.6 million shares underlying the MCPS Series B were included in the calculation of diluted EPS in the period and the related MCPS Series B dividends of $22 million were excluded from the calculation of net earnings for diluted EPS for the period.


The impact of the MCPS Series B calculated under the if-converted method was anti-dilutive for the year ended December 31, 2022 and the three-month period and year ended December 31, 2021, and as such 8.6 million shares underlying the MCPS Series B were excluded from the diluted EPS calculation in all periods and the related MCPS Series B dividends of $86 million, $21 million and $86 million were included in the calculation of net earnings for diluted EPS for the respective periods.

The number of converted shares assumes the conversion of all MCPS and issuance of the underlying shares applying the "if-converted" method of accounting and using an average 20 trading-day trailing VWAP of $266.27 and $316.06 as of December 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.

Note: We expect overall demand for the Company's COVID-19 related products to continue moderating as the pandemic subsides and evolves toward endemic status.  We believe certain demand for the Company's products that support COVID-19 related vaccines and therapeutics (including initiatives that seek to prevent or mitigate similar, future pandemics) and COVID-19 testing will continue, though that demand will likely be uncertain and will vary from period to period.  At the beginning of 2022, the Company believed that on a relative basis, the level of ongoing demand for products supporting COVID-19 testing would be subject to more fluctuations in demand than the level of demand for products supporting COVID-19 related vaccines and therapeutics, due in part to expected COVID-19 case levels, vaccination rates and use of therapies.  However, as a result of lower vaccination rates and the spread of less severe variants of the virus, 2022 demand for the Company's products supporting COVID-19 related vaccines and therapeutics fluctuated and declined more than anticipated at the beginning of the year.  Therefore, beginning with the first quarter of 2023, we have revised the definition of "base business core sales growth" on a basis that not only excludes revenues related to COVID-19 testing but also excludes revenues from products that support COVID-19 related vaccines and therapeutics.  We believe this adjusted definition of "base business core sales growth" will provide more useful information to investors by facilitating period-to-period comparisons of our financial performance and identifying underlying growth trends in the Company's business that otherwise may be obscured by fluctuations in demand for COVID-19 related products.

Forecasted Core Sales Growth and Base Business Core Sales Growth


The Company provides forecasted sales only on a non-GAAP basis because of the difficulty in estimating the other components
of GAAP revenue, such as currency translation, acquisitions and divested product lines.

Statement Regarding Non-GAAP Measures

Each of the non-GAAP measures set forth above should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for or superior to, the comparable GAAP measure, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.  Management believes that these measures provide useful information to investors by offering additional ways of viewing Danaher Corporation's ("Danaher" or the "Company") results that, when reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measure, help our investors:

  • with respect to the profitability-related non-GAAP measures, understand the long-term profitability trends of our business and compare our profitability to prior and future periods and to our peers;
  • with respect to core sales and related sales measures, identify underlying growth trends in our business and compare our sales performance with prior and future periods and to our peers; and
  • with respect to free cash flow from continuing operations and related cash flow measures (the "FCF Measure"), understand Danaher's ability to generate cash without external financings, strengthen its balance sheet, invest in its business and grow its business through acquisitions and other strategic opportunities (although a limitation of free cash flow is that it does not take into account the Company's debt service requirements and other non-discretionary expenditures, and as a result the entire free cash flow amount is not necessarily available for discretionary expenditures).

We expect overall demand for the Company's COVID-19 related products to continue moderating as the pandemic subsides and evolves toward endemic status.  We believe certain demand for the Company's products that support COVID-19 related vaccines and therapeutics (including initiatives that seek to prevent or mitigate similar, future pandemics) and COVID-19 testing will continue, though that demand will likely be uncertain and will vary from period to period.  At the beginning of 2022, the Company believed that on a relative basis, the level of ongoing demand for products supporting COVID-19 testing would be subject to more fluctuations in demand than the level of demand for products supporting COVID-19 related vaccines and therapeutics, due in part to expected COVID-19 case levels, vaccination rates and use of therapies.  However, as a result of lower vaccination rates and the spread of less severe variants of the virus, 2022 demand for the Company's products supporting COVID-19 related vaccines and therapeutics fluctuated and declined more than anticipated at the beginning of the year.  Therefore, beginning with the first quarter of 2023, we have revised the definition of "base business core sales growth" on a basis that not only excludes revenues related to COVID-19 testing but also excludes revenues from products that support COVID-19 related vaccines and therapeutics.  We believe this adjusted definition of "base business core sales growth" will provide more useful information to investors by facilitating period-to-period comparisons of our financial performance and identifying underlying growth trends in the Company's business that otherwise may be obscured by fluctuations in demand for COVID-19 related products.

Management uses these non-GAAP measures to measure the Company's operating and financial performance, and uses core sales and non-GAAP measures similar to Adjusted Diluted Net Earnings Per Common Share from Continuing Operations and the FCF Measure in the Company's executive compensation program.

The items excluded from the non-GAAP measures set forth above have been excluded for the following reasons:

  • With respect to Adjusted Diluted Net Earnings Per Common Share from Continuing Operations:
    • Amortization of Intangible Assets: We exclude the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets because the amount and timing of such charges are significantly impacted by the timing, size, number and nature of the acquisitions we consummate. While we have a history of significant acquisition activity we do not acquire businesses on a predictable cycle, and the amount of an acquisition's purchase price allocated to intangible assets and related amortization term are unique to each acquisition and can vary significantly from acquisition to acquisition. Exclusion of this amortization expense facilitates more consistent comparisons of operating results over time between our newly acquired and long-held businesses, and with both acquisitive and non-acquisitive peer companies. We believe however that it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets contribute to sales generation and that intangible asset amortization related to past acquisitions will recur in future periods until such intangible assets have been fully amortized.
    • Restructuring Charges: We exclude costs incurred pursuant to discrete restructuring plans that are fundamentally different (in terms of the size, strategic nature and planning requirements, as well as the inconsistent frequency, of such plans) from the ongoing productivity improvements that result from application of the Danaher Business System. Because these restructuring plans are incremental to the core activities that arise in the ordinary course of our business and we believe are not indicative of Danaher's ongoing operating costs in a given period, we exclude these costs to facilitate a more consistent comparison of operating results over time.
    • Other Adjustments: With respect to the other items excluded from Adjusted Diluted Net Earnings Per Common Share from Continuing Operations, we exclude these items because they are of a nature and/or size that occur with inconsistent frequency, occur for reasons that may be unrelated to Danaher's commercial performance during the period and/or we believe that such items may obscure underlying business trends and make comparisons of long-term performance difficult. For example, we excluded the first quarter 2022 charge for asset impairments, accruals for contractual obligations and similar items related to our Russia operations because, even though it is possible we could incur additional charges in the future, we do not believe these charges are indicative of Danaher's ongoing operating costs.
  • With respect to adjusted average common stock and common equivalent shares outstanding, Danaher's Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock ("MCPS") Series A converted into Danaher common stock on April 15, 2022 and MCPS Series B will mandatorily convert into Danaher common stock on the mandatory conversion date, which is expected to be April 15, 2023 (unless converted or redeemed earlier in accordance with the terms of the applicable certificate of designations). With respect to the calculation of Adjusted Diluted Net Earnings Per Common Share from Continuing Operations, we apply the "if converted" method of share dilution to the MCPS Series A and B in all applicable periods irrespective of whether such preferred shares would be dilutive or anti-dilutive in the period. We believe this presentation provides useful information to investors by helping them understand what the net impact will be on Danaher's earnings per share-related measures once the MCPS convert into Danaher common stock.
  • With respect to core operating profit margin changes, in addition to the explanation set forth in the bullets above relating to "restructuring charges" and "other adjustments", we exclude the impact of businesses owned for less than one year (or disposed of during such period and not treated as discontinued operations) because the timing, size, number and nature of such transactions can vary significantly from period to period and may obscure underlying business trends and make comparisons of long-term performance difficult.
  • With respect to core sales related measures, (1) we exclude the impact of currency translation because it is not under management's control, is subject to volatility and can obscure underlying business trends, and (2) we exclude the effect of acquisitions and divested product lines because the timing, size, number and nature of such transactions can vary significantly from period-to-period and between us and our peers, which we believe may obscure underlying business trends and make comparisons of long-term performance difficult.
  • With respect to the FCF Measure, we exclude payments for additions to property, plant and equipment (net of the proceeds from capital disposals) to demonstrate the amount of operating cash flow for the period that remains after accounting for the Company's capital expenditure requirements.

The Company provides forecasted sales only on a non-GAAP basis because of the difficulty in estimating the other components of GAAP revenue, such as currency translation, acquisitions and divested product lines.
