On June 22, 2015, Pall Corporation (“Pall”) issued an internal memo to its employees announcing executive leadership changes to take effect upon consummation of the merger contemplated by the previously announced Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated May 12, 2015 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Pall, Danaher Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Danaher”), and Pentagon Merger Sub, Inc., a New York corporation and an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Danaher (“Merger Sub”) providing for the merger of Merger Sub with and into Pall (the “Merger”), with Pall surviving the Merger as an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Danaher. A copy of the internal announcement is attached herewith as Exhibit 99.1.

Effective upon the consummation of the Merger, Mr. Lawrence D. Kingsley will be stepping down as Chairman and CEO of Pall. Concurrently, Danaher has announced the appointment of Mr. Rainer Blair, Danaher Vice President and Group Executive, as President and CEO of Pall, effective upon the consummation of the Merger.

These executive leadership changes will become effective and are conditioned upon the consummation of the Merger. The consummation of the Merger remains subject to customary closing conditions, including (a) obtaining antitrust and other regulatory approvals in the United States and certain other jurisdictions and (b) approval by the holders of two-thirds of outstanding shares of Pall common stock entitled to vote on the adoption of Merger Agreement.
