Statement Regarding Non-GAAP Measures

We present core sales on a basis that includes sales attributable to Cytiva (formerly the Biopharma Business of General Electric Company's ("GE") Life Sciences business), which Danaher acquired from GE on March 31 , 2020.  Core revenue growth including Cytiva should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for or superior to, GAAP revenue growth, and may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other companies.  Management believes that this measure provides useful information to investors by offering an additional way of viewing Danaher's results that, when reconciled to GAAP revenue growth, helps our investors to identify underlying growth trends in our business and compare our sales performance with prior and future periods and to our peers.  Historically Danaher has calculated core sales solely on a basis that excludes sales from acquired businesses recorded prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition.  However, given Cytiva's significant size and historical core sales growth rate, in each case compared to Danaher's existing businesses, management believes it is appropriate to also present core sales on a basis that includes Cytiva sales.  Management believes this presentation provides useful information to investors by demonstrating the impact Cytiva has on the Company's current growth profile, rather than waiting to demonstrate such impact 12 months after the acquisition when Cytiva would normally have been included in Danaher's core sales calculation.  Danaher calculates period-to-period core sales growth including Cytiva by adding to the baseline period sales Cytiva's historical sales from such period (when it was owned by GE), net of the sales of the divested product lines and also adding the Cytiva sales to the current period.

With respect to core sales including Cytiva, (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 (other than Cytiva) 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.
