Danaher Corp. (DHR)


Analysis of Investments

Difficulty: Advanced


Investment Accounting Policy

Investments over which Danaher has a significant influence but not a controlling interest, are accounted for using the equity method of accounting which requires Danaher to record its initial investment at cost and adjust the balance each period for Danaher’s share of the investee’s income or loss and dividends paid. Danaher also invests in innovative start-up companies where Danaher has neither control of nor significant influence over the investee. Beginning in 2018 with the adoption of Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-01, Danaher measures these non-marketable equity securities at fair value and recognizes changes in fair value in net earnings. For securities without readily available fair values, Danaher has elected the measurement alternative to record these investments at cost and to adjust for impairments and observable price changes with a same or similar security from the same issuer within net earnings (the “Fair Value Alternative”). Additionally, Danaher is a limited partner in a partnership that invests in start-up companies. While the partnership records these investments at fair value, Danaher’s investment in the partnership is accounted for under the equity method of accounting. Danaher made minority investments in non-marketable equity securities and equity method investments totaling $149 million in 2018. No significant realized or unrealized gains or losses were recorded in 2018 with respect to these investments.
