This Amendment No. 5 (this Amendment No. 5) to the Statement on Schedule 13D (the Statement) relates to the common stock, par value $.01 per share of Danaher Corporation, a corporation organized under the laws of the state of Delaware (the Company). This Amendment No. 5 amends and supplements (i) the Statement originally filed on March 30, 2007 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the Commission) by Mitchell P. Rales, (ii) Amendment No. 1 to the Statement filed on February 12, 2010 with the Commission by Mitchell P. Rales, (iii) Amendment No. 2 to the Statement filed on June 30, 2011 with the Commission by Mitchell P. Rales, (iv) Amendment No. 3 to the Statement filed on March 15, 2013 with the Commission by Mitchell P. Rales, and (v) Amendment No. 4 to the Statement filed on March 12, 2015 with the Commission by Mitchell P. Rales. Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms used herein shall have the meanings ascribed thereto in the initial Schedule 13D, Amendment No. 1, Amendment No. 2, Amendment No. 3, or Amendment No. 4, as applicable. The purpose of this Amendment No. 5 is to amend and supplement the information contained in Item 5 of the Statement.
The Reporting Persons percentage and share ownership reflected in this Amendment No. 5 differ from the Reporting Persons percentage and share ownership reflected in Amendment No. 4 primarily on account of the Reporting Persons disposition of shares as gifts and as a result of an increase in the outstanding shares of the Issuers common stock.
|Item 5.|| |
Interest in Securities of the Issuer
As of the date hereof, the Reporting Person is the beneficial owner of 35,716,403 shares of common stock representing approximately 5.0% of the approximately 715,933,649 shares outstanding, as disclosed in the Companys Form 10-Q filed on April 18, 2019. The Reporting Persons ownership consists of 32,000,000 shares owned by limited liability companies of which the Reporting Person is the trustee of the sole member, 3,286 shares owned by the Reporting Persons two minor children, 798,274 shares held by the Mitchell P. Rales Family Trust of which the Reporting Person is trustee, 193,431 shares attributable to the Reporting Persons 401(k) account and 2,721,412 shares owned directly. The Reporting Person disclaims beneficial ownership of all shares that are owned directly or indirectly by his spouse and by Steven M. Rales, his brother.
All of the shares of the Companys common stock held by the limited liability companies of which the Reporting Person is the trustee of the sole member are pledged to secure lines of credit with certain banks and each of these entities and the Reporting Person are in compliance with these lines of credit.
As of April 18, 2019, the Reporting Person is no longer the beneficial owner of more than five percent of the Issuers common stock.
After reasonable inquiry and to the best of my knowledge and belief, I certify that the information set forth in this statement is true, complete and correct.
The original statement shall be signed by each person on whose behalf the statement is filed or his authorized representative. If the statement is signed on behalf of a person by his authorized representative (other than an executive officer or general partner of the filing person), evidence of the representatives authority to sign on behalf of such person shall be filed with the statement: provided, however, that a power of attorney for this purpose which is already on file with the Commission may be incorporated by reference. The name and any title of each person who signs the statement shall be typed or printed beneath his signature.
