In a challenging global macro environment, we've continued to enhance our businesses through organic growth initiatives and strategic acquisitions, most notably Pall. As we move forward, we believe the strength of our portfolio, combined with our team's steadfast execution through the Danaher Business System, will help us continue to deliver strong operating results and shareholder value."
