Danaher Mulls Acquisitions

Danaher Corp. (NYSE:DHR) is seeking acquisitions. Larry Culp, President and Chief Executive Officer of Danaher said, "On the capital allocation front, M&A remains our primary focus, and in the first quarter we deployed approximately $160 million on five bolt-on acquisitions, to further strengthen our competitive positions within our test and measurement and environmental segments. We also increased our annual dividend to $0.40 per share from $0.10 per share in February 2014. With a healthy balance sheet and robust acquisition funnel, we remain confident in our ability to deploy more than $8 billion in M&A capacity." Larry added, "So to wrap up, we're off to a very good start in 2014, as our team's execution drove better than expected revenue growth, outstanding margin expansion, and solid earnings performance. The Danaher Business System has helped build momentum across the portfolio, by driving continued share gains, and funding increased growth investments. We believe this momentum, along with our robust balance sheet, and confidence on the acquisition front, position us well in 2014."
