Danaher Corporation Overview

On July 19, 2018, Danaher announced its intention to spin-off the Dental Platform to form a new publicly traded dental company.  The new company “DentalCo” (to be named later) will create one of the largest and most innovative dental companies in the world.  The benefits of this spin-off will allow the Dental business to be more impactful, with greater focus around organic and inorganic growth; be more agile and quick to respond to changing market environments; allow increased access to capital to innovate and invest in clinical and practice workflows; as well as, allow for significant career opportunities for associates and leaders.  DentalCo will be a public entity traded on the NYSE. Collectively, its businesses generated roughly $2.8 billion in revenues in fiscal year 2017 with a global presence in 100 countries, with 20 manufacturing sites.  The Chief Accounting Officer (CAO) will be for the newly created diversified dental company, which will be comprised of the existing operating companies in Danaher’s dental segment, including Kavo Kerr, Ormco, and Nobel Biocare Systems.

In 2016, Danaher separated its industrial segment and stood up Fortive (NYSE: FTV), creating a separate public entity that has since progressed further in its industry segment and seen significant revenue growth and stock value.  The spin-off of DentalCo will enable the new company with increased growth and future value.  The Company will be driven by the same strong core values and a foundation provided by the Danaher Business System, Danaher's associates are pursuing a focused strategy aimed at creating a premier stand-alone Dental company – “Danaher 3.0”.
