Net Debt to Total Capital is defined as the ratio of Total Debt less Cash and Cash Equivalents to Total Capital. Management believes these ratios provide useful information to investors regarding the Company's debt leverage in relation to the size of its available capital base and existing cash resources. Management uses these ratios to evaluate the Company’s leverage over time to help determine the ability of the Company to access additional borrowing capacity. These ratios do not however necessarily indicate the ability of the Company to satisfy the debt service requirements in existing or future debt agreements. These ratios should be considered in addition to, and not in lieu of, other measures of liquidity including working capital prepared in accordance with GAAP. This information is presented for reference only. Final audited financial statements will include footnotes, which should be referenced when available, to more fully understand the contents of this information.
  • 2. DANAHER CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION December 31, 2004 Year Ended Free Cash Flows ($ in 000's): 12/31/04 12/31/03 Operating Cash Flows $ 1,033,216 $ 861,544 Payments for Property, Plant & Equipment (Capital Expenditures) $ (115,906) $ (80,343) Free Cash Flow $ 917,310 $ 781,201 Ratio of Free Cash Flow to Net Earnings: Free Cash Flow from Above $ 917,310 $ 781,201 Net Earnings from Continuing Operations 746,000 536,834 Free Cash Flow to Net Earnings 1.23 1.46 NOTE: Free cash flow is defined as operating cash flow less purchases of property, plant and equipment. Management believes that free cash flow provides useful information to investors regarding the Company's ability to generate cash without external financings. Management uses free cash flow to help gauge the resources available for strategic opportunities such as making acquisitions, investing in the business and strengthening the Company's balance sheet, and uses this measure in making operating decisions, allocating financial resources and for budget planning purposes. Free cash flow does not, however, take into account the Company's debt service requirements and other non-discretionary expenditures and therefore is not necessarily indicative of amounts of cash that may be available for discretionary uses. Free cash flow should be considered in addition to, and not in lieu of, cash flow from operations, net earnings and other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. This information is presented for reference only. Final audited financial statements will include footnotes, which should be referenced when available, to more fully understand the contents of this information.
