Danaher Corporation Files Form S-3 Registration Statement

Danaher Corporation today announced that it has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a Registration Statement on Form S-3 related to a proposed public offering by two selling stockholders, Steven M. Rales, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Company, and Mitchell P. Rales, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Company, of an aggregate of 5,000,000 shares of its common stock. The selling stockholders have also granted the underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional 750,000 shares solely to cover over-allotments. The proceeds from the offering will enable the selling shareholders to achieve long term personal, financial, and estate planning objectives.

These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. This notice shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any State in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such State.
