Danaher Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2018 Results

WASHINGTON, Jan. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Danaher Corporation (DHR) today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year 2018. For the quarter ended December 31, 2018, net earnings were $746.8 million, or $1.05 per diluted share, representing a 13.0% year-over-year decrease.

Non-GAAP adjusted diluted net earnings per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 were $1.28. This represents a 7.5% increase over the comparable 2017 period. For the fourth quarter 2018, revenues increased 5.5% year-over-year to $5.4 billion, with non-GAAP core revenue growth of 5.5%.

For the full year 2018, net earnings were $2.7 billion, or $3.74 per diluted share, representing a 7.0% year-over-year increase. Non-GAAP adjusted diluted net earnings per share for 2018 was $4.52 per share, which represents a 12.0% increase over the comparable 2017 amount. Revenues for the full year 2018 increased 8.5% to $19.9 billion, with non-GAAP core revenue growth of 6.0%. The Company generated operating cash flow of $4.0 billion for the full year 2018, which represents a 15.5% year-over-year increase.

For the first quarter of 2019, the Company anticipates that diluted net earnings per share will be in the range of $0.78 to $0.81 and non-GAAP adjusted diluted net earnings per share will be in the range of $1.00 to $1.03.

For the full year 2019, the Company anticipates that diluted net earnings per share will be in the range of $3.85 to $3.95. The Company continues to expect its 2019 non-GAAP adjusted diluted net earnings per share to be in the range of $4.75 to $4.85.

Thomas P. Joyce, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are very pleased with our fourth quarter results which wrapped up a tremendous 2018. During the year, we delivered strong revenue growth and operating margin expansion, leading to double-digit adjusted earnings per share and free cash flow growth. We believe we gained share in many of our businesses, driven by a combination of new product innovation and enhanced commercial execution. In addition, we closed over $2 billion in strategic acquisitions, and we believe we are well positioned for significant capital deployment in our attractive end-markets."

Joyce continued, "Over the past several years, through a combination of organic and inorganic initiatives, we have transformed Danaher into a higher growth, higher margin, and higher recurring revenue company with strong footholds in attractive, fast-growing end-markets. Our portfolio today — combined with the power of the Danaher Business System — positions us well as we focus on delivering long-term shareholder value in 2019 and beyond."

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."

B  Acquisition-related transaction costs deemed significant ($15 million pretax as presented in this line item, $13 million after-tax), and fair value adjustments to inventory ($1 million pretax as presented in this line item, $0.8 million after-tax), in each case related to the acquisition of IDT and incurred in the second quarter of 2018.  The Company deems acquisition-related transaction costs incurred in a given period to be significant (generally relating to the Company's larger acquisitions) if it determines that such costs exceed the range of acquisition-related transaction costs typical for Danaher in a given period.


C  Net gains on resolution of acquisition-related matters in the Life Sciences segment ($9 million pretax as presented in this line item, $7 million after-tax) for the second quarter of 2018 and net gains on resolution of acquisition-related matters in the Life Sciences and Diagnostics segments ($11 million pretax as presented in this line item, $8 million after-tax) for the three-month period and year ended December 31, 2017.


D  Gain on sales of investments in the three-month period and year ended December 31, 2017 ($73 million pretax as presented in this line item, $46 million after-tax).


E  During the second quarter of 2017, the Company recorded $76 million of pretax restructuring, impairment and other related charges ($51 million after-tax) primarily related to the Company's strategic decision to discontinue certain product development efforts in its Diagnostics segment.  As a result, the Company incurred noncash charges for the impairment of certain technology-related intangibles as well as related inventory and plant, property, and equipment with no further use totaling $49 million.  In addition, the Company incurred cash restructuring costs primarily related to employee severance and related charges totaling $27 million.  This is addressed in more detail in the "Statement Regarding Non-GAAP Measures."


F   Pretax costs incurred (or anticipated to be incurred, as applicable) in the three-month period and year ended December 31, 2018 ($15 million pretax as reported in this line item, $14 million after-tax), the three-month period ending March 29, 2019 ($15 million pretax as reported in this line item, $14 million after-tax) and the year ending December 31, 2019 ($49 million pretax as reported in this line item, $46 million after-tax) related to preparation for the anticipated Dental Separation primarily related to professional fees for legal, tax, finance and information technology services.


G  Pretax costs anticipated to be incurred in the three-month period ending March 29, 2019 ($3 million pretax as reported in this line item, $3 million after-tax) and year ending December 31, 2019 ($37 million pretax as reported in this line item, $30 million after-tax),  related to preparation for the anticipated Dental Separation primarily related to incremental salaries, benefits and rent expense.


H  This line item reflects the aggregate tax effect of all nontax adjustments reflected in the preceding line items of the table.  In addition, each of 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.


I   Represents discrete income tax expense related to preparation for the anticipated Dental Separation primarily related to legal entity restructuring-related capital gains incurred in the three-month period and year ended December 31, 2018.


J   Represents discrete income tax gains, primarily related to the release of valuation allowances associated with certain foreign operating losses and release of reserves upon the expiration of statute of limitations ($32 million in the year ended December 31, 2018) and from finalizing the accounting related to the implementation of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act as required by SAB No. 118 ($5 million in the three-month period and year ended December 31, 2018).

Represents (1) discrete income tax gains, primarily related to expiration of statute of limitations ($94 million in the three-month period ended December 31, 2017 and $129 million in the year ended December 31, 2017), (2) equity compensation-related excess tax benefits ($16 million in the year ended December 31, 2017), (3) remeasurement of deferred tax assets and liabilities, net related to enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ($1.2 billion gain in the three-month period and year ended December 31, 2017), and (4) transition tax on deemed repatriation of foreign earnings in connection with enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ($1.2 billion provision in the three-month period and year ended December 31, 2017).


On January 1, 2017, Danaher adopted the updated accounting guidance required by ASU No. 2016-09, Compensation—Stock Compensation, which requires income statement recognition of all excess tax benefits and deficiencies related to equity compensation.  We exclude from Adjusted Diluted Net EPS any excess tax benefits that exceed the levels we believe are representative of historical experience.  In the first quarter of 2017, we anticipated $10 million of equity compensation-related excess tax benefits and realized $26 million of excess tax benefits, and therefore we have excluded $16 million of these benefits in the calculation of Adjusted Diluted Net Earnings per Share.  In the subsequent quarters reflected in the table, realized equity compensation-related excess tax benefits approximated the anticipated benefit and no adjustments were required.

 

 

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 to:

  • with respect to Adjusted Diluted Net EPS, 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 revenue, identify underlying growth trends in our business and compare our revenue performance with prior and future periods and to our peers; and
  • with respect to free cash flow (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).

Management uses these non-GAAP measures to measure the Company's operating and financial performance, and uses non-GAAP measures similar to Adjusted Diluted Net EPS 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 EPS:
  • With respect to core revenue, (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.
