DHR Completes Acquisition of Tektronix


Danaher Corporation (NYSE: DHR) announced today that it has completed the merger of its indirect wholly owned subsidiary into Tektronix, Inc. and, as a result, Tektronix has become an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Danaher.
Tektronix’s common stock will now cease to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Detailed instructions will be mailed to former Tektronix stockholders who did not tender their shares into the offer outlining the steps to be taken to obtain the merger consideration of $38 per share in cash, without interest.

The closing of the merger and the cessation of trading of Tektronix’s common stock on the New York Stock Exchange are each a “fundamental change” under the terms of the indenture governing Tektronix’s $345 million aggregate principal amount 1.625% Senior Convertible Notes due 2012, which entitles the noteholders to convert their notes into a cash amount based on the value of a certain number of common shares to be determined by a formula set forth in the indenture.
