The following communication was first provided to employees of Pall Corporation on May 13, 2014:


Dear Colleagues,

By now, you’ve probably seen the news that we have agreed to be acquired by Danaher, a global science and technology innovator with a family of world class brands across life sciences, health care, environmental and industrial markets.  This decision was reached after serious and careful consideration and has the full support of our Board of Directors.

This is an exciting new chapter for Pall Corporation, and one that we believe will yield important benefits for all our stakeholders.  As a result of the combination, Pall will be in an even stronger position to serve our customers and provide continued growth opportunities for employees going forward.

First and foremost, we will continue executing against our BU strategies.  Danaher’s interest in Pall is due to our strong brand and position as the technology leader within filtration and separation sciences, with our attractive growth profile and consumables business model.  Pall’s position across attractive and critical life sciences and industrial applications is a complementary fit with Danaher’s science and technology growth focus.  We need to continue to outperform.

Second, with this transaction, we will be able to leverage Danaher’s proven management business system and strong financial position to accelerate our ability to seize on new and exciting growth opportunities, continue to deliver product innovation, and further improve our operational excellence in service to our customers.

You may have also read Danaher’s intention to split itself into two publicly traded companies.  The first will retain the Danaher name and continue as a “science and technology growth” company.  The second yet to be named company will be an industrial company.  Pall in its entirety will become a part of the new Danaher science and technology company, which will generate $16.5 billion in combined revenues.  Pall will remain as a stand-alone brand and become the filtration growth platform under Danaher, to invest and build upon both organically and inorganically.

As Pall employees, you have been instrumental in our success and your industry-leading knowledge and capabilities are all valuable to Danaher. This transaction will provide Pall employees with the opportunity to contribute their expertise to a combined company that strongly values your intellect and operational knowledge, as well as to become part of a world-class company that values innovation, efficiency and serving the customer.

For now, it continues to be business as usual at Pall and you should go about your roles and responsibilities as you normally would. The transaction is subject to regulatory approval and approval from our shareholders, and we expect the transaction to close by the end of calendar 2015.

I understand that this news likely raises many questions in your mind.  We will do our best to answer what we can now.  And for those for which we do not have the immediate answers, I promise we will address those as soon as we are able and over the course of the next several months we will provide you with important updates as they occur.

Finally, I want to thank you for your phenomenal work and dedication.  I am honored to lead such a talented team and proud of how we have grown Pall into the global leader we are today.

Thank you,
