ITEM 5.02 DEPARTURE OF DIRECTORS OR CERTAIN OFFICERS; ELECTION OF DIRECTORS; APPOINTMENT OF CERTAIN OFFICERS; COMPENSATORY ARRANGEMENTS OF CERTAIN OFFICERS
On September 14, 2021, the Board of Directors of Danaher Corporation (the “Company”) amended and restated the Company’s 2007 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) to implement certain modifications (the “Omnibus Plan Amendment”). Following is a brief description of the Omnibus Plan Amendment (capitalized terms have the meaning set forth in the Plan). The description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Plan filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein. The Omnibus Plan Amendment:
updates certain of the retirement provisions of the Plan effective as of January 1, 2022, including:
providing that upon Early Retirement, a participant’s options, RSUs and PSUs will continue vesting in full according to their terms; upon Normal Retirement, stock options will survive until the earlier of 10 years following the Normal Retirement or the conclusion of the term of the option; and that Early Retirement and Normal Retirement will apply only to RSUs, PSUs and stock options granted at least 6 months prior to the retirement date (all of the foregoing changes will apply prospectively);
amending the “Years of Service” definition (for purposes of determining Early Retirement eligibility) to include continuous employment at a company that is acquired by Danaher;
with respect to “net exercises” of stock options, allows for the withholding of shares with value up to the maximum amount required to be withheld in the applicable jurisdiction; and
provides that no “Substantial Corporate Change” will occur to the extent that immediately following the transaction, Danaher’s common stockholders continue to have the same proportionate ownership of whatever entity then owns Danaher’s assets, and clarifying the circumstances under which an award will be considered “assumed or continued” following a Substantial Corporate Change.

The Omnibus Plan Amendment also includes a number of other ministerial, clarifying and conforming changes.
