PERKINELMER, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

Note 1: Basis of Presentation
The condensed consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared by PerkinElmer, Inc. (the “Company”), in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (the “U.S.” or the "United States") and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Certain information in the footnote disclosures of the financial statements has been condensed or omitted where it substantially duplicates information provided in the Company’s latest audited consolidated financial statements, in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements and notes included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 3, 2021, filed with the SEC (the “2020 Form 10-K”). The balance sheet amounts at January 3, 2021 in this report were derived from the Company’s audited 2020 consolidated financial statements included in the 2020 Form 10-K. The condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments that, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods indicated. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts and classifications of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The results of operations for the three months ended April 4, 2021 and April 5, 2020, respectively, are not necessarily indicative of the results for the entire fiscal year or any future period.
The Company’s fiscal year ends on the Sunday nearest December 31. The Company reports fiscal years under a 52/53 week format and as a result, certain fiscal years will contain 53 weeks. The fiscal year ending January 2, 2022 ("fiscal year 2021") will include 52 weeks, and the fiscal year ended January 3, 2021 ("fiscal year 2020") included 53 weeks.
Recently Adopted and Issued Accounting Pronouncements: From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the "FASB") and are adopted by the Company as of the specified effective dates. Unless otherwise discussed, such pronouncements did not have or will not have a significant impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows or do not apply to the Company’s operations.
In December 2019, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes ("ASU 2019-12"). ASU 2019-12 eliminates certain exceptions and adds guidance to reduce complexity in accounting for income taxes. Specifically, this guidance: (1) removes the intraperiod tax allocation exception to the incremental approach; (2) removes the ownership changes in investments exception in determining when a deferred tax liability is recognized after an investor in a foreign entity transitions to or from the equity method of accounting and applies this provision on a modified retrospective basis through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings at the beginning of the period of adoption; and (3) removes the exception to using the general methodology for calculating income taxes in an interim period when a year-to-date loss exceeds the anticipated loss for the year. ASU 2019-12 also simplifies accounting principles by making other changes, including requiring an entity to: (1) evaluate whether a step-up in tax basis of goodwill relates to a business combination or a separate transaction; (2) make a policy election to not allocate consolidated income taxes when a member of a consolidated tax return is not subject to income tax and to apply this provision retrospectively to all periods presented; and (3) recognize a franchise tax (or similar tax) that is partially based on income as an income-based tax and apply this provision either retrospectively for all periods presented or on a modified retrospective basis through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the period of adoption. The provisions of this guidance (except as specifically mentioned above) are to be applied prospectively upon their effective date. ASU 2019-12 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2020, and interim periods within those years. In accordance with ASU 2019-12, the Company adopted the guidance beginning on January 4, 2021. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

Major Customer Concentration
Revenues from one customer in the Company's Diagnostics segment represent approximately $205.6 million of the Company's total revenue for the three months ended April 4, 2021.
Contract Balances
Contract assets: The unbilled receivables (contract assets) primarily relate to the Company's right to consideration for work completed but not billed at the reporting date. The unbilled receivables are transferred to trade receivables when billed to customers. Contract assets are generally classified as current assets and are included in "Accounts receivable, net" in the consolidated balance sheets. The balance of contract assets as of April 4, 2021 and January 3, 2021 were $50.2 million and $59.5 million, respectively. The amount of unbilled receivables recognized at the beginning of the period that were transferred to trade receivables during the three months ended April 4, 2021 was $37.8 million. The increase in unbilled receivables during the three months ended April 4, 2021 as a result of recognition of revenue before billing to customers, excluding amounts transferred to trade receivables during the period, amounted to $28.5 million.
Contract liabilities: The contract liabilities primarily relate to the advance consideration received from customers for products and related installation for which transfer of control has not occurred at the balance sheet date. Contract liabilities are classified as either current in "Accounts payable" or "Accrued expenses and other current liabilities" or as long-term in "Long-term liabilities" in the consolidated balance sheets based on the timing of when the Company expects to recognize revenue. The balance of contract liabilities as of April 4, 2021 and January 3, 2021 were $221.0 million and $238.1 million, respectively. The increase in contract liabilities during the three months ended April 4, 2021 due to cash received, excluding amounts recognized as revenue during the period, was $20.9 million. The amount of revenue recognized during the three months ended April 4, 2021 that was included in the contract liability balance at the beginning of the period was $38.0 million.
10

Contract costs: The Company recognizes the incremental costs of obtaining a contract with a customer as an asset if it expects the benefit of those costs to be longer than one year. The Company determined that certain sales incentive programs meet the requirements to be capitalized. Total capitalized costs to obtain a contract were immaterial during the period and are included in other current and long-term assets on the consolidated balance sheets. The Company applies a practical expedient to expense costs as incurred for costs to obtain a contract with a customer when the amortization period would have been one year or less. These costs include the Company's internal sales force compensation program, as the Company determined that annual compensation is commensurate with annual sales activities.
Transaction price allocated to the remaining performance obligations
The Company applies the practical expedient in ASC 606-10-50-14 and does not disclose information about remaining performance obligations that have original expected durations of one year or less. The estimated revenue expected to be recognized beyond one year in the future related to performance obligations that are unsatisfied (or partially unsatisfied) at the end of the period are not material to the Company. The remaining performance obligations primarily include noncancelable purchase orders and noncancelable software subscriptions and cloud service contracts.

Note 3: Business Combinations
Acquisitions in fiscal year 2021
During the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, the Company completed the acquisition of two businesses for aggregate consideration of $593.4 million. The acquired businesses were Oxford Immunotec Global PLC ("Oxford"), a company based in Abingdon, UK with approximately 275 employees, which was acquired on March 8, 2021 for a total consideration of $590.9 million and one other business, which was acquired for a total consideration of $2.5 million. The excess of the purchase prices over the fair values of the acquired businesses' net assets represents cost and revenue synergies specific to the Company, as well as non-capitalizable intangible assets, such as employee workforces acquired, and has been allocated to goodwill, which is not tax deductible. The Company has reported the operations for these acquisitions within the results of the Company's Diagnostics and Discovery and Analytical Solutions segments, as applicable, from the acquisition dates. Identifiable definite-lived intangible assets, such as core technology, trade names, and customer relationships, acquired as part of these acquisitions had a weighted average amortization period of 11.1 years.

During the fiscal year 2020, the Company completed the acquisition of four businesses for aggregate consideration of $438.7 million. The acquired businesses were Horizon Discovery Group plc (“Horizon”), a company based in Cambridge, UK with approximately 400 employees, which was acquired on December 23, 2020 for a total consideration of $399.4 million (£296.0 million), and three other businesses, which were acquired for a total consideration of $39.3 million. The excess of the purchase prices over the fair values of the acquired businesses' net assets represents cost and revenue synergies specific to the Company, as well as non-capitalizable intangible assets, such as the employee workforces acquired, and has been allocated to goodwill, which is not tax deductible. The Company has reported the operations for these acquisitions within the results of the Company's Diagnostics and Discovery & Analytical Solutions segments, as applicable, from the acquisition dates. Identifiable definite-lived intangible assets, such as core technology, trade names, customer relationships and in-process research and development, acquired as part of these acquisitions had a weighted average amortization period of 11.0 years.

The preliminary allocations of the purchase prices for acquisitions are based upon initial valuations. The Company's estimates and assumptions underlying the initial valuations are subject to the collection of information necessary to complete its valuations within the measurement periods, which are up to one year from the respective acquisition dates. The primary areas of the preliminary purchase price allocations that are not yet finalized relate to the fair value of certain tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed, assets and liabilities related to income taxes and related valuation allowances, and residual goodwill. The Company expects to continue to obtain information to assist in determining the fair values of the net assets acquired at the acquisition dates during the measurement periods. During the measurement periods, the Company will adjust assets or liabilities if new information is obtained about facts and circumstances that existed as of the acquisition dates that, if known, would have resulted in the recognition of those assets and liabilities as of those dates. These adjustments will be made in the periods in which the amounts are determined and the cumulative effect of such adjustments will be calculated as if the adjustments had been completed as of the acquisition dates. All changes that do not qualify as adjustments made during the measurement periods are also included in current period earnings.
Allocations of the purchase price for acquisitions are based on estimates of the fair value of the net assets acquired and are subject to adjustment upon finalization of the purchase price allocations. The accounting for business combinations requires estimates and judgments as to expectations for future cash flows of the acquired business, and the allocation of those cash flows to identifiable intangible assets, in determining the estimated fair values for assets acquired and liabilities assumed.
As of April 4, 2021, the Company may have to pay contingent consideration related to acquisitions with open contingency periods of up to $7.3 million. As of April 4, 2021, the Company has recorded contingent consideration obligations of $3.1 million, of which $3.0 million was recorded in accrued expenses and other current liabilities, and $0.1 million was recorded in long-term liabilities. As of January 3, 2021, the Company had recorded contingent consideration obligations with an estimated fair value of $3.0 million, of which $2.9 million was recorded in accrued expenses and other current liabilities, and $0.1 million was recorded in long-term liabilities. The expected maximum earnout period for acquisitions with open contingency periods does not exceed 1.8 years from April 4, 2021, and the remaining weighted average expected earnout period at April 4, 2021 was 1.1 years. If the actual results differ from the estimates and judgments used in these fair values, the
13

Employee Stock Purchase Plan: During the three months ended April 4, 2021, the Company issued 58 shares of common stock under the Company's Employee Stock Purchase Plan at a weighted-average price of $136.33 per share. During the three months ended April 5, 2020, the Company issued 13,612 shares of common stock under the Company's Employee Stock Purchase Plan at a weighted-average price of $92.25 per share. At April 4, 2021, an aggregate of 0.8 million shares of the Company’s common stock remained available for sale to employees out of the 5.0 million shares authorized by shareholders for issuance under this plan.

Note 13: Goodwill and Intangible Assets, Net
The Company tests goodwill and non-amortizing intangible assets at least annually for possible impairment. Accordingly, the Company completes the annual testing of impairment for goodwill and non-amortizing intangible assets on the later of January 1 or the first day of each fiscal year. In addition to its annual test, the Company regularly evaluates whether events or circumstances have occurred that may indicate a potential impairment of goodwill or non-amortizing intangible assets.
21

The process of testing goodwill for impairment involves the determination of the fair value of the applicable reporting units. The test consists of the comparison of the fair value to the carrying value of the reporting unit to determine if the carrying value exceeds the fair value. If the carrying value of the reporting unit exceeds its fair value, an impairment loss in an amount equal to that excess is recognized up to the amount of goodwill. The Company performed its annual impairment testing for its reporting units as of January 4, 2021, its annual impairment testing date for fiscal year 2021. The Company concluded that there was no goodwill impairment, and the fair value exceeded the carrying value by more than 20% for each reporting unit, except for the Company's Tulip reporting unit which had a fair value that was between 10% and 20% more than its carrying value. The range of the long-term terminal growth rates for the Company’s reporting units was 3% to 5% for the fiscal year 2021 impairment analysis. The range for the discount rates for the reporting units was 8.0% to 12.5%. Keeping all other variables constant, a 10% change in any one of these input assumptions for the various reporting units, except for the Tulip reporting unit, would still allow the Company to conclude that there was no impairment of goodwill. As of January 4, 2021, the Company's Tulip reporting unit, which had a goodwill balance of $77.8 million, was at increased risk of an impairment charge given its ongoing weakness due to the impact of COVID-19. Despite the increased risk associated with this reporting unit, the Company does not currently expect a significant change in the key estimates or assumptions driving the fair value of this reporting unit that would lead to a material impairment charge.
The Company has consistently employed the income approach to estimate the current fair value when testing for impairment of goodwill. A number of significant assumptions and estimates are involved in the application of the income approach to forecast operating cash flows, including markets and market share, sales volumes and prices, costs to produce, tax rates, capital spending, discount rates and working capital changes. Cash flow forecasts are based on approved business unit operating plans for the early years’ cash flows and historical relationships in later years. The income approach is sensitive to changes in long-term terminal growth rates and the discount rates. The long-term terminal growth rates are consistent with the Company’s historical long-term terminal growth rates, as the current economic trends are not expected to affect the long-term terminal growth rates of the Company. The Company corroborates the income approach with a market approach.
Non-amortizing intangibles are also subject to an annual impairment test. The Company has consistently employed the relief from royalty model to estimate the current fair value when testing for impairment of non-amortizing intangible assets. The impairment test consists of a comparison of the fair value of the non-amortizing intangible asset with its carrying amount. If the carrying amount of a non-amortizing intangible asset exceeds its fair value, an impairment loss in an amount equal to that excess is recognized up to the amount of the amortizing intangible asset. In addition, the Company evaluates the remaining useful life of its non-amortizing intangible asset at least annually to determine whether events or circumstances continue to support an indefinite useful life. If events or circumstances indicate that the useful life of the Company's non-amortizing intangible asset is no longer indefinite, the asset will be tested for impairment. This intangible asset will then be amortized prospectively over its estimated remaining useful life and accounted for in the same manner as other intangible assets that are subject to amortization. The Company performed its annual impairment testing as of January 4, 2021 and concluded that there was no impairment of its non-amortizing intangible asset. An assessment of the recoverability of amortizing intangible assets takes place when events have occurred that may give rise to an impairment. No such events occurred during the first three months of fiscal year 2021.

Note 14: Warranty Reserves

The Company provides warranty protection for certain products usually for a period of one year beyond the date of sale. The majority of costs associated with warranty obligations include the replacement of parts and the time for service personnel to respond to repair and replacement requests. A warranty reserve is recorded based upon historical results, supplemented by management’s expectations of future costs. Warranty reserves are included in “Accrued expenses and other current liabilities” on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

During the three months ended April 4, 2021 and April 5, 2020, the Company contributed $1.8 million and $2.1 million, respectively, in the aggregate, to pension plans outside of the United States. During the three months ended April 4, 2021, the Company contributed $20.0 million to its defined benefit pension plan in the United States for the plan year 2019.
The Company recognizes actuarial gains and losses, unless an interim remeasurement is required, in the fourth quarter of the year in which the gains and losses occur, in accordance with the Company's accounting method for defined benefit pension plans and other postretirement benefits as described in Note 1 of the Company's audited consolidated financial statements and notes included in its 2020 Form 10-K. Such adjustments for gains and losses are primarily driven by events and circumstances beyond the Company's control, including changes in interest rates, the performance of the financial markets and mortality assumptions. Service costs for plans in active accrual are included in operating expenses.

Note 16: Derivatives and Hedging Activities

The Company uses derivative instruments as part of its risk management strategy only, and includes derivatives utilized as economic hedges that are not designated as hedging instruments. By nature, all financial instruments involve market and credit risks. The Company enters into derivative instruments with major investment grade financial institutions and has policies to monitor the credit risk of those counterparties. The Company does not enter into derivative contracts for trading or other speculative purposes, nor does the Company use leveraged financial instruments. Approximately 70% of the Company’s business is conducted outside of the United States, generally in foreign currencies. As a result, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates can increase the costs of financing, investing and operating the business.
In the ordinary course of business, the Company enters into foreign exchange contracts for periods consistent with its committed exposures to mitigate the effect of foreign currency movements on transactions denominated in foreign currencies. The intent of these economic hedges is to offset gains and losses that occur on the underlying exposures from these currencies, with gains and losses resulting from the forward currency contracts that hedge these exposures. Transactions covered by hedge contracts include intercompany and third-party receivables and payables. The contracts are primarily in European and Asian currencies, have maturities that do not exceed 12 months, have no cash requirements until maturity, and are recorded at fair value on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets. The unrealized gains and losses on the Company’s foreign currency contracts are recognized immediately in interest and other expense, net. The cash flows related to the settlement of these hedges are included in cash flows from operating activities within the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of cash flows.
Principal hedged currencies include the British Pound, Euro, Indian Rupee, Singapore Dollar and Swedish Krona. The Company held forward foreign exchange contracts, designated as economic hedges, with U.S. dollar equivalent notional amounts totaling $969.5 million, $808.0 million and $272.4 million at April 4, 2021, January 3, 2021 and April 5, 2020, respectively, and the fair value of these foreign currency derivative contracts was insignificant. The gains and losses realized on these foreign currency derivative contracts are not material. The duration of these contracts was generally 30 days or less during each of the three months ended April 4, 2021 and April 5, 2020.

In addition, in connection with certain intercompany loan agreements utilized to finance its acquisitions and stock repurchase program, the Company enters into forward foreign exchange contracts intended to hedge movements in foreign exchange rates prior to settlement of such intercompany loans denominated in foreign currencies. The Company records these hedges at fair value on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets. The unrealized gains and losses on these hedges, as well as the gains and losses associated with the remeasurement of the intercompany loans, are recognized immediately in
24

interest and other expense, net. The cash flows related to the settlement of these hedges are included in cash flows from financing activities within the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of cash flows.
The outstanding forward exchange contracts designated as economic hedges, which were intended to hedge movements in foreign exchange rates prior to the settlement of certain intercompany loan agreements included combined U.S. Dollar notional amounts of $1,309.0 million as of April 4, 2021, combined Euro notional amounts of €33.4 million and combined U.S. Dollar notional amounts of $499.0 million as of January 3, 2021, and combined Euro notional amounts of €108.0 million and combined U.S. Dollar notional amounts of $138.9 million as of April 5, 2020. The net gains and losses on these derivatives, combined with the gains and losses on the remeasurement of the hedged intercompany loans were not material for each of the three months ended April 4, 2021 and April 5, 2020. The Company received $6.0 million and $8.7 million during the three months ended April 4, 2021 and April 5, 2020, respectively, from the settlement of these hedges.
During fiscal year 2018, the Company designated a portion of the 2026 Notes to hedge its investments in certain foreign subsidiaries. Unrealized translation adjustments from a portion of the 2026 Notes were included in the foreign currency translation component of accumulated other comprehensive income ("AOCI"), which offsets translation adjustments on the underlying net assets of foreign subsidiaries. The cumulative translation gains or losses will remain in AOCI until the foreign subsidiaries are liquidated or sold. As of April 4, 2021, the total notional amount of the 2026 Notes that was designated to hedge investments in foreign subsidiaries was €299.7 million. The unrealized foreign exchange gains recorded in AOCI related to the net investment hedge were $21.6 million and $21.0 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021 and April 5, 2020, respectively.
During fiscal year 2019, the Company entered into a cross-currency swap designated as a net investment hedge to hedge the Euro currency exposure of the Company’s net investment in certain foreign subsidiaries. This agreement is a contract to exchange fixed-rate payments in one currency for fixed-rate payments in another currency. Changes in the fair value of this swap are recorded in equity as a component of AOCI in the same manner as foreign currency translation adjustments. In assessing the effectiveness of this hedge, the Company uses a method based on changes in spot rates to measure the impact of the foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations on both its foreign subsidiary net investment and the related swap. Under this method, changes in the fair value of the hedging instrument other than those due to changes in the spot rate are initially recorded in AOCI as a translation adjustment, and then are amortized into other (income) expense, net in the condensed consolidated statement of operations using a systematic and rational method over the instrument’s term. Changes in the fair value associated with the effective portion (i.e. those changes due to the spot rate) are recorded in AOCI as a translation adjustment and are released and recognized in earnings only upon the sale or liquidation of the hedged net investment. The cross-currency swap has an initial notional value of €197.4 million, or $220.0 million, and matures on November 15, 2021. Interest on the cross-currency swap is payable semi-annually, in Euro, on May 15th and November 15th of each year based on the Euro notional value and a fixed rate of 2.47%. The Company receives interest in U.S. dollars on May 15th and November 15th of each year based on the U.S. dollar equivalent of the Euro notional value and a fixed rate of 5.00%. At April 4, 2021, the fair value of the cross-currency swap was $(10.1) million, which was recorded in AOCI. The unrealized foreign exchange (losses) gains recorded in AOCI related to the cross-currency swap were $(10.1) million and $8.9 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021 and April 5, 2020, respectively.
During fiscal year 2020, the Company entered into a forward foreign exchange contracts, designated as cash flow hedges, to hedge the 2021 Notes. The effective portion of the gain or loss of the cash flow hedges will be reported as a component of other comprehensive income and reclassified into earnings in the same period during which the hedged transaction affects earnings. As of April 4, 2021, the total notional amount of the forward foreign exchange contracts that were designated as cash flow hedges was €300.0 million. The unrealized foreign exchange gains recorded in earnings related to the cash flow hedges were $13.6 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021.
During fiscal year 2021, the Company entered into forward foreign exchange contracts, designated as a cash flow hedge, to hedge a portion of the 2026 Notes. The effective portion of the gain or loss of the cash flow hedge will be reported as a component of other comprehensive income and reclassified into earnings in the same period during which the hedged transaction affects earnings. As of April 4, 2021, the total notional amount of the forward foreign exchange contracts that were designated as cash flow hedges was €197.4 million. The unrealized foreign exchange loss recorded in earnings related to the cash flow hedge was $0.9 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021.
The Company does not expect any material net pre-tax gains or losses to be reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive loss into interest and other expense, net within the next twelve months.

Note 17: Fair Value Measurements

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash equivalents, derivatives, marketable securities and accounts receivable. The Company believes it had no significant concentrations of credit risk as of April 4, 2021.
The Company uses the market approach technique to value its financial instruments and there were no changes in valuation techniques during the three months ended April 4, 2021. The Company’s financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value are primarily comprised of marketable securities, derivative contracts used to hedge the Company’s currency risk, and acquisition-related contingent consideration. The Company has not elected to measure any additional financial instruments or other items at fair value.
Valuation Hierarchy: The following summarizes the three levels of inputs required to measure fair value. For Level 1 inputs, the Company utilizes quoted market prices as these instruments have active markets. For Level 2 inputs, the Company utilizes quoted market prices in markets that are not active, broker or dealer quotations, or utilizes alternative pricing sources with reasonable levels of price transparency. For Level 3 inputs, the Company utilizes unobservable inputs based on the best information available, including estimates by management primarily based on information provided by third-party fund managers, independent brokerage firms and insurance companies. A financial asset’s or liability’s classification within the hierarchy is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement. In determining fair value, the Company utilizes valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs to the extent possible.
The following tables show the assets and liabilities carried at fair value measured on a recurring basis as of April 4, 2021 and January 3, 2021 classified in one of the three classifications described above:

Level 1 and Level 2 Valuation Techniques:    The Company’s Level 1 and Level 2 assets and liabilities are comprised of investments in equity and fixed-income securities as well as derivative contracts. For financial assets and liabilities that utilize Level 1 and Level 2 inputs, the Company utilizes both direct and indirect observable price quotes, including common stock price quotes, foreign exchange forward prices and bank price quotes. Below is a summary of valuation techniques for Level 1 and Level 2 financial assets and liabilities.
Marketable securities:    Include equity and fixed-income securities measured at fair value using the quoted market prices in active markets at the reporting date.
Foreign exchange derivative assets and liabilities:    Include foreign exchange derivative contracts that are valued using quoted forward foreign exchange prices at the reporting date. The Company’s foreign exchange derivative contracts are subject to master netting arrangements that allow the Company and its counterparties to net settle amounts owed to each other. Derivative assets and liabilities that can be net settled under these arrangements have been presented in the Company's
26

condensed consolidated balance sheet on a net basis and are recorded in other assets. As of both April 4, 2021 and January 3, 2021, none of the master netting arrangements involved collateral.
Level 3 Valuation Techniques:    The Company’s Level 3 liabilities are comprised of contingent consideration related to acquisitions. For liabilities that utilize Level 3 inputs, the Company uses significant unobservable inputs. Below is a summary of valuation techniques for Level 3 liabilities.
Contingent consideration:    Contingent consideration is measured at fair value at the acquisition date using projected milestone dates, discount rates, probabilities of success and projected revenues (for revenue-based considerations). Projected risk-adjusted contingent payments are discounted back to the current period using a discounted cash flow model.
The fair values of contingent consideration are calculated on a quarterly basis based on a collaborative effort of the Company’s operations, finance and accounting groups, as appropriate. Potential valuation adjustments are made as additional information becomes available, including the progress towards achieving the revenue targets as compared to initial projections, with the impact of such adjustments being recorded in the Company's consolidated statements of operations.
As of April 4, 2021, the Company may have to pay contingent consideration, related to acquisitions with open contingency periods, of up to $7.3 million. The expected maximum earnout period for the acquisitions with open contingency periods does not exceed 1.8 years from April 4, 2021, and the remaining weighted average expected earnout period at April 4, 2021 was 1.1 years.
A reconciliation of the beginning and ending Level 3 net liabilities for contingent consideration is as follows:

Change in fair value (included within selling, general and administrative expenses) (240) 12,325 
Balance at end of period $ (3,124) $ (22,777)
The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate fair value due to the short-term maturities of these assets and liabilities. If measured at fair value, cash and cash equivalents would be classified as Level 1.
The Company's outstanding senior unsecured notes had a fair value of $2,710.0 million and a carrying value of $2,567.5 million as of April 4, 2021. The Company's outstanding senior unsecured notes had a fair value of $1,984.3 million and a carrying value of $1,811.5 million as of January 3, 2021. The fair values of the outstanding senior unsecured notes were estimated using market quotes from brokers and were based on current rates offered for similar debt, which are Level 2 measurements.
The Company’s other debt facilities, including the senior revolving credit facility, had an aggregate carrying value of $12.7 million and $179.1 million as of April 4, 2021 and January 3, 2021, respectively. As of April 4, 2021, these consisted of bank loans in the aggregate amount of $12.7 million bearing fixed interest rates between 1.1% and 8.9% and a bank loan in the amount of $49,400 bearing a variable interest rate based on the Euribor rate plus a margin of 1.5%. The Company had no change in credit standing during the first three months of fiscal year 2021. Consequently, the carrying value approximates fair value and were classified as Level 2.
As of April 4, 2021, there has not been any significant impact to the fair value of the Company’s derivative liabilities due to credit risk. Similarly, there has not been any significant adverse impact to the Company’s derivative assets based on the evaluation of its counterparties’ credit risks.

Note 18: Contingencies

The Company is conducting a number of environmental investigations and remedial actions at current and former locations of the Company and, along with other companies, has been named a potentially responsible party (“PRP”) for certain waste disposal sites. The Company accrues for environmental issues in the accounting period that the Company’s responsibility is established and when the cost can be reasonably estimated. The Company has accrued $12.1 million and $12.9 million as of April 4, 2021 and January 3, 2021, respectively, which represents its management’s estimate of the cost of the remediation of known environmental matters and does not include any potential liability for related personal injury or property damage claims.
27

These amounts were included in accrued expenses and other current liabilities. The Company's environmental accrual is not discounted and does not reflect the recovery of any material amounts through insurance or indemnification arrangements. The cost estimates are subject to a number of variables, including the stage of the environmental investigations, the magnitude of the possible contamination, the nature of the potential remedies, possible joint and several liability, the time period over which remediation may occur, and the possible effects of changing laws and regulations. For sites where the Company has been named a PRP, management does not currently anticipate any additional liability to result from the inability of other significant named parties to contribute. The Company expects that the majority of such accrued amounts could be paid out over a period of up to ten years. As assessment and remediation activities progress at each individual site, these liabilities are reviewed and adjusted to reflect additional information as it becomes available. There have been no environmental problems to date that have had, or are expected to have, a material adverse effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements. While it is possible that a loss exceeding the amounts recorded in the condensed consolidated financial statements may be incurred, the potential exposure is not expected to be materially different from those amounts recorded.
The Company is subject to various claims, legal proceedings and investigations covering a wide range of matters that arise in the ordinary course of its business activities. Although the Company has established accruals for potential losses that it believes are probable and reasonably estimable, in the opinion of the Company’s management, based on its review of the information available at this time, the total cost of resolving these contingencies at April 4, 2021 would not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements. However, each of these matters is subject to uncertainties, and it is possible that some of these matters may be resolved unfavorably to the Company.

Overview of the First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2021
Our fiscal year ends on the Sunday nearest December 31. We report fiscal years under a 52/53 week format and as a result, certain fiscal years will contain 53 weeks. The fiscal year ending January 2, 2022 ("fiscal year 2021") will include 52 weeks, and the fiscal year ended January 3, 2021 ("fiscal year 2020") included 53 weeks.
Our overall revenue in the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 was $1,307.7 million and increased $655.3 million, or 100%, as compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, reflecting an increase of $599.1 million, or 236%, in our Diagnostics segment revenue and an increase of $56.2 million, or 14%, in our Discovery & Analytical Solutions segment revenue. The increase in our Diagnostics segment revenue for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 was driven by growth across our core portfolio and COVID-19 product offerings. The increase in our Discovery & Analytical Solutions segment revenue for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 was driven by an increase in our life sciences market and applied markets revenue, as well as favorable changes in foreign exchange rates. The increase in our life sciences market revenue was the result of an increase in revenue in our pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets driven by continued growth of our Informatics business, partially offset by the loss of the extra week, rationalization of the Enterprise portfolio, and a decrease in revenue from our academia and governmental markets driven by difficult regional dynamics. The increase in our applied markets revenue was driven by increased demand from our industrial, environmental and food markets.
Our consolidated gross margins increased 1,283 basis points in the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, as compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, primarily due to higher sales volume, favorable shift in product mix, service productivity and pricing initiatives, partially offset by increased amortization expense. Our consolidated operating margins increased 2,892 basis points in the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, as compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, primarily due to higher sales volume, which was partially offset by increased costs related to amortization of acquired intangible assets, investments in new product development and growth initiatives.
Overall, we believe that our strategic priorities and recent portfolio transformations, coupled with our expanded range of product offerings, leading market positions, global scale and financial strength provide us with a foundation for continued growth.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related to revenue recognition, warranty costs, bad debts, inventories,
29

accounting for business combinations and dispositions, long-lived assets, income taxes, restructuring, pensions and other postretirement benefits, contingencies and litigation. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.
Critical accounting policies are those policies that affect our more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of our condensed consolidated financial statements. We believe our critical accounting policies include our policies regarding revenue recognition, warranty costs, allowances for doubtful accounts, inventory valuation, business combinations, value of long-lived assets, including goodwill and other intangibles, employee compensation and benefits, restructuring activities, gains or losses on dispositions and income taxes.
For a more detailed discussion of our critical accounting policies and estimates, refer to the Notes to our audited consolidated financial statements and Item 7. “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 3, 2021 (our “2020 Form 10-K”), as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. There have been no significant changes in our critical accounting policies and estimates during the three months ended April 4, 2021.

Consolidated Results of Continuing Operations
Revenue
Revenue for the three months ended April 4, 2021 was $1,307.7 million, as compared to $652.4 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020, an increase of $655.3 million, or approximately 100%, which includes an approximate 5% increase in revenue attributable to acquisitions and divestitures and a 3% increase in revenue attributable to favorable changes in foreign exchange rates. The analysis in the remainder of this paragraph compares segment revenue for the three months ended April 4, 2021 as compared to the three months ended April 5, 2020 and includes the effect of foreign exchange rate fluctuations, acquisitions and divestitures. Our Diagnostics segment revenue was $853.1 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $254.0 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020, an increase of $599.1 million, or 236%, primarily due to growth across our core portfolio and COVID-19 product offerings. Our Discovery & Analytical Solutions segment revenue was $454.6 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $398.4 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020, an increase of $56.2 million, or 14%, driven by an increase in our life sciences market and applied markets revenue, as well as favorable changes in foreign exchange rates. As a result of adjustments to deferred revenue related to certain acquisitions required by business combination accounting rules, we did not recognize $1.2 million of revenue for the three months ended April 4, 2021 and $0.2 million of revenue for the three months ended April 5, 2020 that otherwise would have been recorded by the acquired businesses during each of the respective periods.
Cost of Revenue
Cost of revenue for the three months ended April 4, 2021 was $522.5 million, as compared to $344.4 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020, an increase of $178.2 million, or approximately 52%. As a percentage of revenue, cost of revenue decreased to 40.0% for the three months ended April 4, 2021, from 52.8% for the three months ended April 5, 2020, resulting in an increase in gross margin of 1,283 basis points to 60.0% for the three months ended April 4, 2021, from 47.2% for the three months ended April 5, 2020. Amortization of intangible assets increased and was $20.3 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $16.1 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. Stock-based compensation expense was $0.4 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021 as compared to $0.3 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. The amortization of purchase accounting adjustments to record the inventory from certain acquisitions added an incremental expense of $3.0 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $1.1 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. In addition to the above items, the overall increase in gross margin was primarily the result of higher volume, favorable shift in product mix, service productivity and pricing initiatives, partially offset by increased amortization expense.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended April 4, 2021 were $251.4 million, as compared to $208.6 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020, an increase of $42.8 million, or 20.5%. As a percentage of revenue, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased and were 19.2% for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to 32.0% for the three months ended April 5, 2020. Amortization of intangible assets increased and was $33.9 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $31.2 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. Stock-based compensation expense was $4.6 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021 as compared to $2.5 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. Other purchase accounting adjustments added an incremental expense of $0.2 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to decreasing expense by $12.3 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020.
30

Acquisition and divestiture-related expenses added an incremental expense of $9.7 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to an incremental expense of $12.4 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. Legal costs for significant litigation matters and settlements added an incremental expense of $0.4 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. In addition to the above items, the increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily the result of costs related to investments in people, digital capabilities and innovation, amplified by pandemic-related cost controls and disruptions in the prior year.
Research and Development Expenses
Research and development expenses for the three months ended April 4, 2021 were $60.2 million, as compared to $48.9 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020, an increase of $11.3 million, or 23.1%. As a percentage of revenue, research and development expenses decreased and were 4.6% for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to 7.5% for the three months ended April 5, 2020. Stock-based compensation expense was $0.2 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $0.3 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. The increase in research and development expenses was driven by our investments in new product development.
Restructuring and Other Costs, Net
We implemented a restructuring plan in the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 consisting of workforce reductions principally intended to realign resources to emphasize growth initiatives and integrate new acquisitions (the "Q1 2021 Plan").We implemented a restructuring plan in the third quarter of fiscal year 2020 consisting of workforce reductions principally intended to realign resources to emphasize growth initiatives (the "Q3 2020 Plan"). We implemented a restructuring plan in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 consisting of workforce reductions and closure of excess facilities principally intended to realign resources to emphasize growth initiatives (the "Q1 2020 Plan"). Details of the plans initiated in previous years (the “Previous Plans”) are discussed more fully in Note 5 to the audited consolidated financial statements in the 2020 Form 10-K.
The following table summarizes the reductions in headcount, the initial restructuring or contract termination charges by reporting segment, and the dates by which payments were substantially completed, or the dates by which payments are expected to be substantially completed, for restructuring actions implemented during fiscal years 2021 and 2020 in continuing operations:

We do not currently expect to incur any future charges for these plans. We expect to make payments under the Previous Plans for remaining residual lease obligations, with terms varying in length, through fiscal year 2022.
We recorded pre-tax charges of $0.2 million and $1.4 million associated with relocating facilities during the three months ended April 4, 2021 and April 5, 2020, respectively, in the Discovery & Analytical Solutions segment. We expect to make payments on these relocation activities through end of fiscal year 2021.
Interest and Other Expense, Net
Interest and other expense, net, consisted of the following:
  Three Months Ended

Total interest and other (income) expense, net $ (12,706) $ 9,993 
31

Interest and other (income) expense, net, for the three months ended April 4, 2021 was $(12.7) million, as compared to $10.0 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020, a decrease of $22.7 million. The decrease in interest and other (income) expense, net, for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to the three months ended April 5, 2020, was primarily due to a change in fair value of financial securities of $19.3 million that was recognized during the three months ended April 4, 2021 and an increase in other income, net of $3.7 million, partially offset by an increase of $0.5 million in interest expense for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to the three months ended April 5, 2020. The increase of $3.7 million in other income, net for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to the three months ended April 5, 2020, consisted primarily of higher foreign exchange gain related to foreign currency transactions and translation. The other components of net periodic pension credit were $3.7 million and $1.7 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021 and April 5, 2020, respectively. These amounts were included in other income, net.
Provision for Income Taxes
For the three months ended April 4, 2021, the provision for income taxes from continuing operations was $101.1 million, as compared to $1.0 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. The effective tax rate from continuing operations was 21.1% for the three months ended April 4, 2021 as compared to 2.8% for the three months ended April 5, 2020. The higher effective tax rate during the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to the three months ended April 5, 2020, was due to certain higher tax rate jurisdictions projected to have higher income in fiscal year 2021 as compared to fiscal year 2020 and a net tax expense related to discrete items of $2.0 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $4.9 million of net tax benefit for the three months ended April 5, 2020. The discrete tax impact in the first three months of fiscal year 2021 included various tax return to provision adjustments totaling $1.8 million and a $1.5 million accrual for foreign earnings, which were partially offset by excess tax benefits on stock compensation of $3.1 million. The discrete tax benefits in the first three months of fiscal year 2020 included excess tax benefits on stock compensation of $1.6 million and $3.8 million associated with a valuation allowance reversal.

Reporting Segment Results of Continuing Operations
Discovery & Analytical Solutions
Revenue for the three months ended April 4, 2021 was $454.6 million, as compared to $398.4 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020, an increase of $56.2 million, or 14%, which includes an approximate 5% increase in revenue attributable to acquisitions and divestitures and a 3% increase in revenue attributable to favorable changes in foreign exchange rates. The life sciences market revenue accounted for $31.5 million of the increase while the applied markets revenue was $24.7 million of the increase. The analysis in the remainder of this paragraph compares selected revenue by end market for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to the three months ended April 5, 2020, and includes the effect of foreign exchange fluctuations, acquisitions and divestitures. The increase in our life sciences market revenue was the result of an increase in revenue in our pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets driven by continued growth of our Informatics business, partially offset by the loss of the extra week, rationalization of the Enterprise portfolio, and a decrease in revenue from our academia and governmental markets driven by difficult regional dynamics. The increase in our applied markets revenue was driven by increased demand from our industrial, environmental and food markets.
Operating income from continuing operations for the three months ended April 4, 2021 was $42.9 million, as compared to $28.5 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020, an increase of $14.4 million, or 51%. Amortization of intangible assets was $20.4 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $20.7 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. Restructuring and other charges, net, were $4.1 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $3.9 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. The amortization of purchase accounting adjustments to record the inventory from certain acquisitions was $1.1 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $0.8 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. Acquisition and divestiture-related expenses, contingent consideration and other costs added an incremental expense of $7.0 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $24,000 for the three months ended April 5, 2020. Legal costs for significant litigation matters and settlements was $0.4 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. In addition to the factors noted above, operating income increased for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to the three months ended April 5, 2020, primarily as a result of higher sales volume and favorable product mix, partially offset by increased investments in new product development and growth initiatives.
Diagnostics
Revenue for the three months ended April 4, 2021 was $853.1 million, as compared to $254.0 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020, an increase of $599.1 million, or 236%, which includes an approximate 5% increase in revenue attributable to acquisitions and divestitures and 4% increase in revenue attributable to favorable changes in foreign exchange rates. As a result of adjustments to deferred revenue related to certain acquisitions required by business combination accounting
32

rules, we did not recognize $0.2 million of revenue in our Diagnostics segment for each of the three months ended April 4, 2021 and April 5, 2020 that otherwise would have been recorded by the acquired businesses during each of the respective periods. The increase in our Diagnostics segment revenue for the three months ended April 4, 2021 was driven by growth across our core and COVID-19 portfolio.
Operating income from continuing operations for the three months ended April 4, 2021 was $441.5 million, as compared to $29.6 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020, an increase of $411.9 million, or 1,392%. Amortization of intangible assets increased and was $33.7 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $26.5 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. Restructuring and other charges, net, were $1.6 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $1.9 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. The amortization of purchase accounting adjustments to record the inventory from certain acquisitions was $1.9 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $0.3 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. Acquisition and divestiture-related expenses, contingent consideration and other costs added an incremental expense of $4.1 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $0.2 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. In addition to the factors noted above, operating income increased for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to the three months ended April 5, 2020, primarily as a result of higher sales volume and favorable product mix, partially offset by increased investments in new product development and growth initiatives.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
We require cash to pay our operating expenses, make capital expenditures, make strategic acquisitions, service our debt and other long-term liabilities, repurchase shares of our common stock and pay dividends on our common stock. Our principal sources of funds are from our operations and the capital markets, particularly the debt markets. We anticipate that our internal operations will generate sufficient cash to fund our operating expenses, capital expenditures, smaller acquisitions, interest payments on our debt and dividends on our common stock. However, we expect to use external sources to satisfy the balance of our debt when due and fund any larger acquisitions and other long-term liabilities, such as contributions to our postretirement benefit plans.
Principal factors that could affect the availability of our internally generated funds include:
changes in sales due to weakness in markets in which we sell our products and services, and
changes in our working capital requirements and capital expenditures.
Principal factors that could affect our ability to obtain cash from external sources include:
financial covenants contained in the financial instruments controlling our borrowings that limit our total borrowing capacity,
increases in interest rates applicable to our outstanding variable rate debt,
a ratings downgrade that could limit the amount we can borrow under our senior unsecured revolving credit facility and our overall access to the corporate debt market,
increases in interest rates or credit spreads, as well as limitations on the availability of credit, that affect our ability to borrow under future potential facilities on a secured or unsecured basis,
a decrease in the market price for our common stock, and
volatility in the public debt and equity markets, including as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
At April 4, 2021, we had cash and cash equivalents of $988.2 million, of which $390.3 million was held by our non-U.S. subsidiaries, and we had $989.0 million of additional borrowing capacity available under our senior unsecured revolving credit facility. We had no other liquid investments at April 4, 2021.
We utilize a variety of tax planning and financing strategies to ensure that our worldwide cash is available in the locations in which it is needed. We use our non-U.S. cash for needs outside of the U.S. including foreign operations, capital investments, acquisitions and repayment of debt. In addition, we transfer cash to the U.S. using nontaxable returns of capital, distribution of previously taxed income, as well as dividends, where the related income tax cost is managed efficiently. We have accrued tax expense on the unremitted earnings of foreign subsidiaries as required by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (the "Tax Act") and where the foreign earnings are not considered permanently reinvested. In accordance with the Tax Act, we are making scheduled annual cash payments on our accrued transition tax. The tax cost and related tax payments are not expected to be material to the execution of our business, investment and acquisition strategies. During the three months ended April 4, 2021, we paid a foreign tax assessment of $8.8 million, however, we are appealing the underlying tax decision.
33

On July 31, 2020, our Board of Directors (the "Board") authorized us to repurchase shares of common stock for an aggregate amount up to $250.0 million under a stock repurchase program (the "Repurchase Program"). The Repurchase Program will expire on July 27, 2022 unless terminated earlier by the Board and may be suspended or discontinued at any time. During the three months ended April 4, 2021, we repurchased 233,000 shares of common stock under the Repurchase Program for an aggregate cost of $33.6 million. As of April 4, 2021, $216.4 million remained available for aggregate repurchases of shares under the Repurchase Program.
In addition, the Board has authorized us to repurchase shares of common stock to satisfy minimum statutory tax withholding obligations in connection with the vesting of restricted stock awards and restricted stock unit awards granted pursuant to our equity incentive plans and to satisfy obligations related to the exercise of stock options made pursuant to our equity incentive plans. During the three months ended April 4, 2021, we repurchased 61,791 shares of common stock for this purpose at an aggregate cost of $9.2 million.
The repurchased shares have been reflected as additional authorized but unissued shares, with the payments reflected in common stock and capital in excess of par value. Any repurchased shares will be available for use in connection with corporate programs. If we continue to repurchase shares, the Repurchase Program will be funded using our existing financial resources, including cash and cash equivalents, and our senior unsecured revolving credit facility.
Distressed global financial markets could adversely impact general economic conditions by reducing liquidity and credit availability, creating increased volatility in security prices, widening credit spreads and decreasing valuations of certain investments. The widening of credit spreads may create a less favorable environment for certain of our businesses and may affect the fair value of financial instruments that we issue or hold. Increases in credit spreads, as well as limitations on the availability of credit at rates we consider to be reasonable, could affect our ability to borrow under future potential facilities on a secured or unsecured basis, which may adversely affect our liquidity and results of operations. In difficult global financial markets, we may be forced to fund our operations at a higher cost, or we may be unable to raise as much funding as we need to support our business activities.
During the three months ended April 4, 2021, we contributed $1.8 million, in the aggregate, to pension plans outside of the United States and expect to contribute an additional $5.5 million by the end of fiscal year 2021. During the three months ended April 4, 2021, we contributed $20.0 million to our defined benefit pension plan in the United States for the plan year 2019. We could potentially have to make additional contributions in future periods for all pension plans. We expect to use existing cash and external sources to satisfy future contributions to our pension plans.
Our pension plans have not experienced a material impact on liquidity or counterparty exposure due to the volatility and uncertainty in the credit markets. We recognize actuarial gains and losses in operating results in the fourth quarter of the year in which the gains and losses occur, unless there is an interim remeasurement required for one of our plans. It is difficult to reliably predict the magnitude of such adjustments for gains and losses in fiscal year 2021. These adjustments are primarily driven by events and circumstances beyond our control, including changes in interest rates, the performance of the financial markets and mortality assumptions. To the extent the discount rates decrease or the value of our pension and postretirement investments decrease, a loss to operations will be recorded in fiscal year 2021. Conversely, to the extent the discount rates increase or the value of our pension and postretirement investments increase more than expected, a gain will be recorded in fiscal year 2021.
Cash Flows
Operating Activities. Net cash provided by continuing operations was $473.5 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to net cash provided by continuing operations of $60.1 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020, an increase in cash provided by operating activities of $413.5 million. The cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended April 4, 2021 was principally a result of income from continuing operations of $379.3 million, and adjustments for non-cash charges aggregating to $65.9 million, including depreciation and amortization of $70.2 million, and a net cash increase in working capital of $28.3 million. During the three months ended April 4, 2021, we contributed $1.8 million, in the aggregate, to pension plans outside of the United States and $20.0 million to our defined benefit pension plan in the United States for the plan year 2019.
Investing Activities. Net cash used in investing activities was $461.9 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $22.0 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020, an increase of $439.8 million. For the three months ended April 4, 2021, the net cash used in investing activities was a result of cash used for acquisitions of $443.5 million, capital expenditures of $14.3 million and purchases of investments of $4.0 million. Cash used for capital expenditures was $20.5 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. The capital expenditures in each period were primarily for manufacturing, software and other capital equipment purchases. During the three months ended April 5, 2020, we used $1.6 million for
34

purchases of investments, which was partially offset by $0.1 million each of proceeds from disposition of businesses and assets and proceeds from surrender of life insurance policies.
Financing Activities. Net cash provided by financing activities was $583.0 million for the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to net cash used in financing activities of $24.6 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020, an increase in cash provided by financing activities of $607.6 million. The cash provided by financing activities during the three months ended April 4, 2021 was a result of proceeds from the sale of unsecured senior notes, proceeds from borrowings, proceeds from settlement of forward foreign exchange contracts and proceeds from the issuance of common stock under stock plans. During the three months ended April 4, 2021, proceeds from the sale of unsecured senior notes were $799.9 million and our debt borrowings totaled $584.0 million. These were partially offset by debt payments of $743.5 million and debt issuance costs of $7.9 million during the three months ended April 4, 2021. This compares to debt borrowings of $125.0 million, which were more than offset by debt payments of $141.0 million during the three months ended April 5, 2020. Proceeds from settlement of forward foreign exchange contracts were $6.0 million during the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $8.7 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. Proceeds from the issuance of common stock under our stock plans were $5.0 million during the three months ended April 4, 2021, as compared to $1.1 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. This cash provided by financing activities during the three months ended April 4, 2021 was partially offset by repurchase of our common stock pursuant to our Repurchase Program and equity incentive plans, net payments on other credit facilities and payments of dividends. During the three months ended April 4, 2021, we repurchased 233,000 shares of common stock under the Repurchase Program and 61,791 shares of our common stock to satisfy minimum statutory tax withholding obligations in connection with the vesting of restricted stock awards and restricted stock unit awards granted pursuant to our equity incentive plans and to satisfy obligations related to the exercise of stock options made pursuant to our equity incentive plans, for a total cost of $42.8 million. This compares to repurchases of 66,360 shares of our common stock pursuant to our equity incentive plans for the three months ended April 5, 2020, for a total cost of $6.3 million. During the three months ended April 4, 2021, we had net payments on other credit facilities of $9.8 million as compared to $4.3 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020. During the three months ended April 4, 2021, we paid $7.9 million in dividends as compared to $7.8 million for the three months ended April 5, 2020.
Borrowing Arrangements
See Note 8, Debt, in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for a detailed discussion of our borrowing arrangements.

Dividends
Our Board declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.07 per share for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 and in each quarter of fiscal year 2020. At April 4, 2021, we had accrued $7.9 million for dividends declared on January 28, 2021 for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 that were paid on May 7, 2021. On April 29, 2021, we announced that our Board had declared a quarterly dividend of $0.07 per share for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 that will be payable in August 2021. In the future, our Board may determine to reduce or eliminate our common stock dividend in order to fund investments for growth, repurchase shares or conserve capital resources.

Contractual Obligations
On March 8, 2021, we issued $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of 2031 Notes in a registered public offering and received $399.9 million of net proceeds from the issuance. The 2031 Notes were issued at 99.965% of the principal amount, which resulted in a discount of $0.1 million. As of April 4, 2021, the 2031 Notes had an aggregate carrying value of $396.1 million, net of $0.1 million of unamortized original issue discount and $3.8 million of unamortized debt issuance costs. The 2031 Notes mature in March 2031 and bear interest at an annual rate of 2.55%.
On March 8, 2021, we issued $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of 2051 Notes in a registered public offering and received $400.00 million of net proceeds from the issuance. The 2051 Notes were issued at 99.999% of the principal amount, which resulted in a discount of $4,000. As of April 4, 2021, the 2051 Notes had an aggregate carrying value of $395.3 million, net of $4,000 of unamortized original issue discount and $4.7 million of unamortized debt issuance costs. The 2051 Notes mature in March 2051 and bear interest at an annual rate of 3.625%.
On April 9, 2021, we redeemed all of our outstanding 2021 Notes and paid an aggregate principal amount of $337.1 million.

Item 3.Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
Market Risk. We are exposed to market risk, including changes in interest rates and currency exchange rates. To manage the volatility relating to these exposures, we enter into various derivative transactions pursuant to our policies to hedge against known or forecasted market exposures. We briefly describe several of the market risks we face below. Our market risks are not materially different from the disclosure provided under the heading, Item 7A. “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk,” in our 2020 Form 10-K.
Foreign Currency Exchange Risk—Value-at-Risk Disclosure. We continue to measure foreign currency risk using the Value-at-Risk model described in Item 7A. “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk,” in our 2020 Form 10-K. The measures for our Value-at-Risk analysis have not changed materially.
Interest Rate Risk. As described above, our debt portfolio includes variable rate instruments. Fluctuations in interest rates can therefore have a direct impact on both our short-term cash flows, as they relate to interest, and our earnings. To manage the volatility relating to these exposures, we periodically enter into various derivative transactions pursuant to our policies to hedge against known or forecasted interest rate exposures.
Interest Rate Risk—Sensitivity. Our 2020 Form 10-K presents sensitivity measures for our interest rate risk. The measures for our sensitivity analysis have not changed materially. More information is available in Item 7A. “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk,” in our 2020 Form 10-K for our sensitivity disclosure.


Item 4.Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures. Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of our fiscal quarter ended April 4, 2021. The term “disclosure controls and procedures” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), means controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed by the company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives and management necessarily applies its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Based on the evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of our fiscal quarter ended April 4, 2021, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting. There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the fiscal quarter ended April 4, 2021 that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. We have not experienced any material impact to our internal controls over financial reporting despite the fact that many of our employees are working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are continually monitoring and assessing the effect of the COVID-19 situation on our internal controls to minimize the impact on their design and operating effectiveness.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1.Legal Proceedings
We are subject to various claims, legal proceedings and investigations covering a wide range of matters that arise in the ordinary course of our business activities. Although we have established accruals for potential losses that we believe are probable and reasonably estimable, in the opinion of our management, based on its review of the information available at this time, the total cost of resolving these contingencies at April 4, 2021 should not have a material adverse effect on our condensed consolidated financial statements. However, each of these matters is subject to uncertainties, and it is possible that some of these matters may be resolved unfavorably to us.

Item 1A.Risk Factors
The following important factors affect our business and operations generally or affect multiple segments of our business and operations:
Risks Related to our Business Operations and Industry
If the markets into which we sell our products decline or do not grow as anticipated due to a decline in general economic conditions, or there are uncertainties surrounding the approval of government or industrial funding proposals, or there are unfavorable changes in government regulations, we may see an adverse effect on the results of our business operations.
Our customers include pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, laboratories, academic and research institutions, public health authorities, private healthcare organizations, doctors and government agencies. Our quarterly revenue and results of operations are highly dependent on the volume and timing of orders received during the quarter. In addition, our revenues and earnings forecasts for future quarters are often based on the expected trends in our markets. However, the markets we serve do not always experience the trends that we may expect. Negative fluctuations in our customers’ markets, the inability of our customers to secure credit or funding, restrictions in capital expenditures, general economic conditions, cuts in government funding or unfavorable changes in government regulations would likely result in a reduction in demand for our products and services. In addition, government funding is subject to economic conditions and the political process, which is inherently fluid and unpredictable. Our revenues may be adversely affected if our customers delay or reduce purchases as a result of uncertainties surrounding the approval of government or industrial funding proposals. Such declines could harm our consolidated financial position, results of operations, cash flows and trading price of our common stock, and could limit our ability to sustain profitability.
    The pandemic caused by coronavirus disease 2019 (“COVID-19”) is having, and may continue to have, a negative effect on the demand for certain of our products and our global operations including our manufacturing capabilities, logistics and supply chain that may materially and adversely impact our business, financial conditions, results of operations and cash flows.
We face risks related to public health crises and pandemics, including the COVID-19 pandemic that was first reported in China in December 2019 and has since spread to all geographic regions where our products are produced and sold. The global impact of COVID-19 has resulted in an adverse impact on our operations, supply chains and distribution systems, as significant global mitigation measures, including government-directed quarantines, social distancing and shelter-in-place mandates, travel restrictions and/or bans, have been implemented, and in some areas relaxed, and then implemented again. Continued uncertainty with respect to the severity and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic has contributed to the volatility of financial markets. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused extended global economic disruption, and a global recession is possible.
We have experienced significant reductions in demand for certain of our products in our Discovery & Analytical Solutions segment due to the COVID-19 pandemic and although the severity and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic cannot be reasonably estimated at this time, additional impacts that we may experience include, but are not limited to: fluctuations in our stock price due to market volatility; further decreases in demand for certain of our products; reduced profitability; large-scale supply chain disruptions impeding our ability to ship and/or receive product; potential interruptions of, or limitations on manufacturing operations imposed by local, state or federal governments; shortages of key raw materials; workforce absenteeism and distraction; labor shortages; customer credit concerns; cybersecurity risks and data accessibility disruptions due to remote working arrangements; reduced sources of liquidity; increased borrowing costs; fluctuations in foreign currency markets; potential impairment in the carrying value of goodwill; other asset impairment charges; increased obligations related to our pension and other postretirement benefit plans; and deferred tax valuation allowances.
The rapid and continually evolving development of the COVID-19 situation, and the extent to which ongoing mitigation measures will be effective, precludes any prediction as to its ultimate impact. However, we currently anticipate that business
37

disruptions and market volatility resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to have a material adverse impact on the growth rate of certain of our businesses, particularly within the Discovery & Analytical Solutions segment, and may also have a material adverse impact on our overall financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
Our Diagnostics segment has experienced an increase in revenue resulting from increased demand for our immunodiagnostics and applied genomics COVID-19 product offerings as well as from the COVID-19 testing laboratory facilities we have developed with the State of California and the United Kingdom. The increased demand for these products is expected to continue into the third quarter of our fiscal year 2021, but the overall sustainability of the increase in associated revenue and valuation of our inventory remains largely contingent upon consumer demand for COVID-19 testing as well as our ability to develop and produce COVID-19 products and successfully staff and manage the laboratories.
Our growth is subject to global economic and political conditions, and operational disruptions at our facilities.
Our business is affected by global economic and political conditions as well as the state of the financial markets, particularly as the United States and other countries balance concerns around debt, inflation, growth and budget allocations in their policy initiatives. There can be no assurance that global economic conditions and financial markets will not worsen and that we will not experience any adverse effects that may be material to our consolidated cash flows, results of operations, financial position or our ability to access capital, such as the adverse effects resulting from a prolonged shutdown in government operations both in the United States and internationally. Our business is also affected by local economic environments, including inflation, recession, financial liquidity and currency volatility or devaluation. Political changes, some of which may be disruptive, could interfere with our supply chain, our customers and all of our activities in a particular location.
While we take precautions to prevent production or service interruptions at our global facilities, a major earthquake, fire, flood, power loss or other catastrophic event that results in the destruction or delay of any of our critical business operations could result in our incurring significant liability to customers or other third parties, cause significant reputational damage or have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results or financial condition.
Certain of these risks can be hedged to a limited degree using financial instruments, or other measures, and some of these risks are insurable, but any such mitigation efforts are costly and may not always be fully successful. Our ability to engage in such mitigation efforts has decreased or become even more costly as a result of recent market developments.
If we do not introduce new products in a timely manner, we may lose market share and be unable to achieve revenue growth targets.
We sell many of our products in industries characterized by rapid technological change, frequent new product and service introductions, and evolving customer needs and industry standards. Many of the businesses competing with us in these industries have significant financial and other resources to invest in new technologies, substantial intellectual property portfolios, substantial experience in new product development, regulatory expertise, manufacturing capabilities, and established distribution channels to deliver products to customers. Our products could become technologically obsolete over time, or we may invest in technology that does not lead to revenue growth or continue to sell products for which the demand from our customers is declining, in which case we may lose market share or not achieve our revenue growth targets. The success of our new product offerings will depend upon several factors, including our ability to:
accurately anticipate customer needs,
innovate and develop new reliable technologies and applications,
receive regulatory approvals in a timely manner,
successfully commercialize new technologies in a timely manner,
price our products competitively, and manufacture and deliver our products in sufficient volumes and on time, and
differentiate our offerings from our competitors’ offerings.
Many of our products are used by our customers to develop, test and manufacture their products. We must anticipate industry trends and consistently develop new products to meet our customers’ expectations. In developing new products, we may be required to make significant investments before we can determine the commercial viability of the new product. If we fail to accurately foresee our customers’ needs and future activities, we may invest heavily in research and development of products that do not lead to significant revenue. We may also suffer a loss in market share and potential revenue if we are unable to commercialize our technology in a timely and efficient manner.
In addition, some of our licensed technology is subject to contractual restrictions, which may limit our ability to develop or commercialize products for some applications.
38

We may not be able to successfully execute acquisitions or divestitures, license technologies, integrate acquired businesses or licensed technologies into our existing businesses, or make acquired businesses or licensed technologies profitable.
We have in the past supplemented, and may in the future supplement, our internal growth by acquiring businesses and licensing technologies that complement or augment our existing product lines, such as our recent acquisition of Oxford Immunotec Global PLC. However, we may be unable to identify or complete promising acquisitions or license transactions for many reasons, such as:
competition among buyers and licensees,
the high valuations of businesses and technologies,
the need for regulatory and other approval, and
our inability to raise capital to fund these acquisitions.
Some of the businesses we acquire may be unprofitable or marginally profitable, or may increase the variability of our revenue recognition. If, for example, we are unable to successfully commercialize products and services related to significant in-process research and development that we have capitalized, we may have to impair the value of such assets. Accordingly, the earnings or losses of acquired businesses may dilute our earnings. For these acquired businesses to achieve acceptable levels of profitability, we would have to improve their management, operations, products and market penetration. We may not be successful in this regard and may encounter other difficulties in integrating acquired businesses into our existing operations, such as incompatible management, information or other systems, cultural differences, loss of key personnel, unforeseen regulatory requirements, previously undisclosed liabilities or difficulties in predicting financial results. Additionally, if we are not successful in selling businesses we seek to divest, the activity of such businesses may dilute our earnings and we may not be able to achieve the expected benefits of such divestitures. As a result, our financial results may differ from our forecasts or the expectations of the investment community in a given quarter or over the long term.
To finance our acquisitions, we may have to raise additional funds, either through public or private financings. We may be unable to obtain such funds or may be able to do so only on terms unacceptable to us. We may also incur expenses related to completing acquisitions or licensing technologies, or in evaluating potential acquisitions or technologies, which may adversely impact our profitability.
If we do not compete effectively, our business will be harmed.
We encounter aggressive competition from numerous competitors in many areas of our business. We may not be able to compete effectively with all of these competitors. To remain competitive, we must develop new products and periodically enhance our existing products. We anticipate that we may also have to adjust the prices of many of our products to stay competitive. In addition, new competitors, technologies or market trends may emerge to threaten or reduce the value of entire product lines.
Our quarterly operating results could be subject to significant fluctuation, and we may not be able to adjust our operations to effectively address changes we do not anticipate, which could increase the volatility of our stock price and potentially cause losses to our shareholders.
Given the nature of the markets in which we participate, we cannot reliably predict future revenue and profitability. Changes in competitive, market and economic conditions may require us to adjust our operations, and we may not be able to make those adjustments or make them quickly enough to adapt to changing conditions. A high proportion of our costs are fixed in the short term, due in part to our research and development and manufacturing costs. As a result, small declines in sales could disproportionately affect our operating results in a quarter. Factors that may affect our quarterly operating results include:
demand for and market acceptance of our products,
competitive pressures resulting in lower selling prices,
changes in the level of economic activity in regions in which we do business, including as a result of COVID-19 and other global health crises or pandemics,
changes in general economic conditions or government funding,
settlements of income tax audits,
expenses incurred in connection with claims related to environmental conditions at locations where we conduct or formerly conducted operations,
39

contract termination and litigation costs,
differing tax laws and changes in those laws, or changes in the countries in which we are subject to taxation,
changes in our effective tax rate,
changes in industries, such as pharmaceutical and biomedical,
changes in the portions of our revenue represented by our various products and customers,
our ability to introduce new products,
our competitors’ announcement or introduction of new products, services or technological innovations,
costs of raw materials, labor, energy or supplies,
changes in healthcare or other reimbursement rates paid by government agencies and other third parties for certain of our products and services,
our ability to realize the benefit of ongoing productivity initiatives,
changes in the volume or timing of product orders,
fluctuation in the expense related to the mark-to-market adjustment on postretirement benefit plans,
changes in our assumptions underlying future funding of pension obligations,
changes in assumptions used to determine contingent consideration in acquisitions, and
changes in foreign currency exchange rates.
A significant disruption in third-party package delivery and import/export services, or significant increases in prices for those services, could interfere with our ability to ship products, increase our costs and lower our profitability.
We ship a significant portion of our products to our customers through independent package delivery and import/export companies, including UPS and Federal Express in the United States; TNT, UPS and DHL in Europe; and UPS in Asia. We also ship our products through other carriers, including commercial airlines, freight carriers, national trucking firms, overnight carrier services and the United States Postal Service. If one or more of the package delivery or import/export providers experiences a significant disruption in services or institutes a significant price increase, including a service disruption as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we may have to seek alternative providers and the delivery of our products could be prevented or delayed. Such events could cause us to incur increased shipping costs that could not be passed on to our customers, negatively impacting our profitability and our relationships with certain of our customers.
Disruptions in the supply of raw materials, certain key components and other goods from our limited or single source suppliers could have an adverse effect on the results of our business operations, and could damage our relationships with customers.
The production of our products requires a wide variety of raw materials, key components and other goods that are generally available from alternate sources of supply. However, certain critical raw materials, key components and other goods required for the production and sale of some of our principal products are available from limited or single sources of supply. We generally have multi-year contracts with no minimum purchase requirements with these suppliers, but those contracts may not fully protect us from a failure by certain suppliers to supply critical materials or from the delays inherent in being required to change suppliers and, in some cases, validate new raw materials. Such raw materials, key components and other goods can usually be obtained from alternative sources with the potential for an increase in price, decline in quality or delay in delivery. A prolonged inability to obtain certain raw materials, key components or other goods is possible and could have an adverse effect on our business operations, and could damage our relationships with customers. In addition, a global health crisis or pandemic such as the COVID-19 pandemic could have a significant adverse effect on our supply chain.
We are subject to the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission requiring disclosure as to whether certain materials known as conflict minerals (tantalum, tin, gold, tungsten and their derivatives) that may be contained in our products are mined from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and adjoining countries. As a result of these rules, we may incur additional costs in complying with the disclosure requirements and in satisfying those customers who require that the components used in our products be certified as conflict-free, and the potential lack of availability of these materials at competitive prices could increase our production costs.
40

If we do not retain our key personnel, our ability to execute our business strategy will be limited.
Our success depends to a significant extent upon the continued service of our executive officers and key management and technical personnel, particularly our experienced engineers and scientists, and on our ability to continue to attract, retain, and motivate qualified personnel. The competition for these employees is intense. The loss of the services of key personnel could have a material adverse effect on our operating results. In addition, there could be a material adverse effect on us should the turnover rates for key personnel increase significantly or if we are unable to continue to attract qualified personnel. We do not maintain any key person life insurance policies on any of our officers or employees.
Our success also depends on our ability to execute leadership succession plans. The inability to successfully transition key management roles could have a material adverse effect on our operating results.
If we experience a significant disruption in, or breach in security of, our information technology systems or those of our customers, suppliers or other third parties, or cybercrime, resulting in inappropriate access to or inadvertent transfer of information or assets, or if we fail to implement new systems, software and technologies successfully, our business could be adversely affected.
We rely on several centralized information technology systems throughout our company to develop, manufacture and provide products and services, keep financial records, process orders, manage inventory, process shipments to customers and operate other critical functions. Our and our third-party service providers' information technology systems may be susceptible to damage, disruptions or shutdowns due to power outages, hardware failures, computer viruses, attacks by computer hackers, telecommunication failures, user errors, catastrophes or other unforeseen events. If we were to experience a prolonged system disruption in the information technology systems that involve our interactions with customers, suppliers or other third parties, it could result in the loss of sales and customers and significant incremental costs, which could adversely affect our business. In addition, security breaches of our information technology systems or cybercrime, resulting in inappropriate access to or inadvertent transfer of information or assets, could result in losses or misappropriation of assets or unauthorized disclosure of confidential information belonging to us or to our employees, partners, customers or suppliers, which could result in our suffering significant financial or reputational damage.
Our results of operations will be adversely affected if we fail to realize the full value of our intangible assets.
As of April 4, 2021, our total assets included $5.2 billion of net intangible assets. Net intangible assets consist principally of goodwill associated with acquisitions and costs associated with securing patent rights, trademark rights, customer relationships, core technology and technology licenses and in-process research and development, net of accumulated amortization. We test certain of these items—specifically all of those that are considered “non-amortizing”—at least annually for potential impairment by comparing the carrying value to the fair market value of the reporting unit to which they are assigned. All of our amortizing intangible assets are also evaluated for impairment should events occur that call into question the value of the intangible assets.
Adverse changes in our business, adverse changes in the assumptions used to determine the fair value of our reporting units, or the failure to grow our Discovery & Analytical Solutions and Diagnostics segments may result in impairment of our intangible assets, which could adversely affect our results of operations.
Risks Related to our Intellectual Property
We may not be successful in adequately protecting our intellectual property.
Patent and trade secret protection is important to us because developing new products, processes and technologies gives us a competitive advantage, although it is time-consuming and expensive. We own many United States and foreign patents and intend to apply for additional patents. Patent applications we file, however, may not result in issued patents or, if they do, the claims allowed in the patents may be narrower than what is needed to protect fully our products, processes and technologies. The expiration of our previously issued patents may cause us to lose a competitive advantage in certain of the products and services we provide. Similarly, applications to register our trademarks may not be granted in all countries in which they are filed. For our intellectual property that is protected by keeping it secret, such as trade secrets and know-how, we may not use adequate measures to protect this intellectual property.
Third parties have in the past and may in the future also challenge the validity of our issued patents, may circumvent or “design around” our patents and patent applications, or claim that our products, processes or technologies infringe their patents. In addition, third parties may assert that our product names infringe their trademarks. We may incur significant expense in legal proceedings to protect our intellectual property against infringement by third parties or to defend against claims of infringement by third parties. Claims by third parties in pending or future lawsuits could result in awards of substantial damages against us or
41

court orders that could effectively prevent us from manufacturing, using, importing or selling our products in the United States or other countries.
If we are unable to renew our licenses or otherwise lose our licensed rights, we may have to stop selling products or we may lose competitive advantage.
We may not be able to renew our existing licenses, or licenses we may obtain in the future, on terms acceptable to us, or at all. If we lose the rights to a patented or other proprietary technology, we may need to stop selling products incorporating that technology and possibly other products, redesign our products or lose a competitive advantage. Potential competitors could in-license technologies that we fail to license and potentially erode our market share.
Our licenses typically subject us to various economic and commercialization obligations. If we fail to comply with these obligations, we could lose important rights under a license, such as the right to exclusivity in a market, or incur losses for failing to comply with our contractual obligations. In some cases, we could lose all rights under the license. In addition, rights granted under the license could be lost for reasons out of our control. For example, the licensor could lose patent protection for a number of reasons, including invalidity of the licensed patent, or a third-party could obtain a patent that curtails our freedom to operate under one or more licenses.
Risks Related to Legal, Government and Regulatory Matters
The manufacture and sale of products and services may expose us to product and other liability claims for which we could have substantial liability.
We face an inherent business risk of exposure to product and other liability claims if our products, services or product candidates are alleged or found to have caused injury, damage or loss. We may be unable to obtain insurance with adequate levels of coverage for potential liability on acceptable terms or claims of this nature may be excluded from coverage under the terms of any insurance policy that we obtain. If we are unable to obtain such insurance or the amounts of any claims successfully brought against us substantially exceed our coverage, then our business could be adversely impacted.
If we fail to maintain satisfactory compliance with the regulations of the United States Food and Drug Administration and other governmental agencies in the United States and abroad, we may be forced to recall products and cease their manufacture and distribution, and we could be subject to civil, criminal or monetary penalties.
Our operations are subject to regulation by different state and federal government agencies in the United States and other countries, as well as to the standards established by international standards bodies. If we fail to comply with those regulations or standards, we could be subject to fines, penalties, criminal prosecution or other sanctions. Some of our products are subject to regulation by the United States Food and Drug Administration and similar foreign and domestic agencies. These regulations govern a wide variety of product activities, from design and development to labeling, manufacturing, promotion, sales and distribution. If we fail to comply with those regulations or standards, we may have to recall products, cease their manufacture and distribution, and may be subject to fines or criminal prosecution.
We are also subject to a variety of laws, regulations and standards that govern, among other things, the importation and exportation of products, the handling, transportation and manufacture of toxic or hazardous substances, the collection, storage, transfer, use, disclosure, retention and other processing of personal data, and our business practices in the United States and abroad such as anti-bribery, anti-corruption and competition laws. This requires that we devote substantial resources to maintaining our compliance with those laws, regulations and standards. A failure to do so could result in the imposition of civil, criminal or monetary penalties having a material adverse effect on our operations.
Changes in governmental regulations may reduce demand for our products or increase our expenses.
We compete in markets in which we or our customers must comply with federal, state, local and foreign regulations, such as environmental, health and safety, data privacy and food and drug regulations. We develop, configure and market our products to meet customer needs created by these regulations. Any significant change in these regulations could reduce demand for our products or increase our costs of producing these products.
The healthcare industry is highly regulated and if we fail to comply with its extensive system of laws and regulations, we could suffer fines and penalties or be required to make significant changes to our operations which could have a significant adverse effect on the results of our business operations.
The healthcare industry, including the genetic screening market, is subject to extensive and frequently changing international and United States federal, state and local laws and regulations. In addition, legislative provisions relating to
42

healthcare fraud and abuse, patient privacy violations and misconduct involving government insurance programs provide federal enforcement personnel with substantial powers and remedies to pursue suspected violations. We believe that our business will continue to be subject to increasing regulation as the federal government continues to strengthen its position on healthcare matters, the scope and effect of which we cannot predict. If we fail to comply with applicable laws and regulations, we could suffer civil and criminal damages, fines and penalties, exclusion from participation in governmental healthcare programs, and the loss of various licenses, certificates and authorizations necessary to operate our business, as well as incur liabilities from third-party claims, all of which could have a significant adverse effect on our business.
Risks Related to our Foreign Operations
    Economic, political and other risks associated with foreign operations could adversely affect our international sales and profitability.
Because we sell our products worldwide, our businesses are subject to risks associated with doing business internationally. Our sales originating outside the United States represented the majority of our total revenue in fiscal year 2020. We anticipate that sales from international operations will continue to represent a substantial portion of our total revenue. In addition, many of our manufacturing facilities, employees and suppliers are located outside the United States. Accordingly, our future results of operations could be harmed by a variety of factors, including:
changes in actual, or from projected, foreign currency exchange rates,
a global health crisis of unknown duration, such as the COVID-19 pandemic,
changes in a country’s or region’s political or economic conditions, particularly in developing or emerging markets,
longer payment cycles of foreign customers and timing of collections in foreign jurisdictions,
trade protection measures including embargoes and tariffs, such as the tariffs recently implemented by the U.S. government on certain imports from China and by the Chinese government on certain imports from the U.S., the extent and impact of which have yet to be fully determined,
import or export licensing requirements and the associated potential for delays or restrictions in the shipment of our products or the receipt of products from our suppliers,
policies in foreign countries benefiting domestic manufacturers or other policies detrimental to companies headquartered in the United States,
differing tax laws and changes in those laws, or changes in the countries in which we are subject to tax,
adverse income tax audit settlements or loss of previously negotiated tax incentives,
differing business practices associated with foreign operations,
difficulty in transferring cash between international operations and the United States,
difficulty in staffing and managing widespread operations,
differing labor laws and changes in those laws,
differing protection of intellectual property and changes in that protection,
expanded enforcement of laws related to data protection and personal privacy,
increasing global enforcement of anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws, and
differing regulatory requirements and changes in those requirements.
The United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union could adversely impact our results of operations.
Nearly 10% of our net sales from continuing operations in fiscal year 2020 came from the United Kingdom. Following the referendum vote in the United Kingdom in June 2016 in favor of leaving the European Union, on January 31, 2020, the country formally withdrew from the European Union (commonly referred to as “Brexit”) and, on December 24, 2020, the United Kingdom and the European Union entered into a Trade and Cooperation Agreement to govern the relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union following Brexit. The potential effects of Brexit remain uncertain. Brexit has caused, and may continue to create, volatility in global stock markets and regional and global economic uncertainty particularly in the United Kingdom financial and banking markets. Weakening of economic conditions or economic uncertainties tend to harm our
43

business, and if such conditions worsen in the United Kingdom or in the rest of Europe, it may have a material adverse effect on our operations and sales.
Any significant weakening of the Great Britain Pound to the U.S. dollar will have an adverse impact on our European revenues due to the importance of our sales in the United Kingdom. Currency exchange rates in the pound sterling and the euro with respect to each other and the U.S. dollar have already been adversely affected by Brexit and that may continue to be the case.
Risks Related to our Debt
We have a substantial amount of outstanding debt, which could impact our ability to obtain future financing and limit our ability to make other expenditures in the conduct of our business.
    
We have a substantial amount of debt and other financial obligations. Our debt level and related debt service obligations could have negative consequences, including:
requiring us to dedicate significant cash flow from operations to the payment of principal and interest on our debt, which reduces the funds we have available for other purposes, such as acquisitions and stock repurchases;
reducing our flexibility in planning for or reacting to changes in our business and market conditions;
exposing us to interest rate risk as a portion of our debt obligations are at variable rates;
increasing our foreign currency risk as a portion of our debt obligations are in denominations other than the US dollar; and
increasing the chances of a downgrade of our debt ratings due to the amount or intended purpose of our debt obligations.
We may incur additional indebtedness in the future to meet future financing needs. If we add new debt, the risks described above could increase. In addition, the market for both public and private debt offerings could experience liquidity concerns and increased volatility as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which could ultimately increase our borrowing costs and limit our ability to obtain future financing.
Restrictions in our senior unsecured revolving credit facility and other debt instruments may limit our activities.
Our senior unsecured revolving credit facility, senior unsecured notes due in 2026 ("2026 Notes"), senior unsecured notes due in 2029 ("2029 Notes"), senior unsecured notes due in 2031 ("2031 Notes") and senior unsecured notes due in 2051 ("2051 Notes") include restrictive covenants that limit our ability to engage in activities that could otherwise benefit our company. These include restrictions on our ability and the ability of our subsidiaries to:
pay dividends on, redeem or repurchase our capital stock,
sell assets,
incur obligations that restrict our subsidiaries’ ability to make dividend or other payments to us,
guarantee or secure indebtedness,
enter into transactions with affiliates, and
consolidate, merge or transfer all, or substantially all, of our assets and the assets of our subsidiaries on a consolidated basis.
We are also required to meet specified financial ratios under the terms of certain of our existing debt instruments. Our ability to comply with these financial restrictions and covenants is dependent on our future performance, which is subject to prevailing economic conditions and other factors, including factors that are beyond our control, such as foreign exchange rates, interest rates, changes in technology and changes in the level of competition. In addition, if we are unable to maintain our investment grade credit rating, our borrowing costs would increase and we would be subject to different and potentially more restrictive financial covenants under some of our existing debt instruments.
Any future indebtedness that we incur may include similar or more restrictive covenants. Our failure to comply with any of the restrictions in our senior unsecured revolving credit facility, the 2026 Notes, the 2029 Notes, the 2031 Notes, the 2051 Notes or any future indebtedness may result in an event of default under those debt instruments, which could permit acceleration of the debt under those debt instruments, and require us to prepay that debt before its scheduled due date under certain circumstances.

Discontinuation, reform, or replacement of LIBOR may adversely affect our variable rate debt.
Our indebtedness under our senior unsecured revolving credit facility bears interest at fluctuating interest rates, primarily based on the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) for deposits of U.S. dollars. In July 2017, the United Kingdom Financial Conduct Authority (the authority that regulates LIBOR) announced that it intends to stop compelling banks to submit rates for the calculation of LIBOR after 2021. It is unclear whether new methods of calculating LIBOR will be established such that it continues to exist after 2021. The Alternative Reference Rates Committee in the United States has proposed that the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) is the rate that represents best practice as the alternative to U.S. dollar LIBOR for use in derivatives and other financial contracts that are currently indexed to LIBOR. If LIBOR is discontinued, reformed or replaced, we expect that our indebtedness under our senior unsecured revolving credit facility will be indexed to a replacement benchmark based on SOFR. Any such change could cause the effective interest rate under our senior unsecured revolving credit facility and our overall interest expense to increase, in which event we may have difficulties making interest payments and funding our other fixed costs, and our available cash flow for general corporate requirements may be adversely affected.
Risks Related to Ownership of our Common Stock
Our share price will fluctuate.
Over the last several years, stock markets in general and our common stock in particular have experienced significant price and volume volatility. Both the market price and the daily trading volume of our common stock may continue to be subject to significant fluctuations due not only to general stock market conditions but also to a change in sentiment in the market regarding our operations and business prospects. In addition to the risk factors discussed above, the price and volume volatility of our common stock may be affected by:
operating results that vary from our financial guidance or the expectations of securities analysts and investors,
the financial performance of the major end markets that we target,
the operating and securities price performance of companies that investors consider to be comparable to us,
announcements of strategic developments, acquisitions and other material events by us or our competitors,
changes in global financial markets and global economies and general market conditions, such as interest or foreign exchange rates, commodity and equity prices and the value of financial assets, and
changes to economic conditions arising from global health crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dividends on our common stock could be reduced or eliminated in the future.
On January 28, 2021, we announced that our Board of Directors (our "Board") had declared a quarterly dividend of $0.07 per share for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 that was paid on May 7, 2021. On April 29, 2021, we announced that our Board had declared a quarterly dividend of $0.07 per share for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 that will be payable in August 2021. In the future, our Board may determine to reduce or eliminate our common stock dividend in order to fund investments for growth, repurchase shares or conserve capital resources.

(1)Our Board of Directors (our "Board") has authorized us to repurchase shares of common stock to satisfy minimum statutory tax withholding obligations in connection with the vesting of restricted stock awards and restricted stock unit awards granted pursuant to our equity incentive plans and to satisfy obligations related to the exercise of stock options made pursuant to our equity incentive plans.
