Twersky Law Group, a highly regarded and reputable law firm based in New York, wishes to inform investors about a significant development in the form of a class action lawsuit against Danaher Corporation (“Danaher” or “the Company) (NASDAQ: DHR) and certain officers of the company. This lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all individuals and entities that held, purchased, or otherwise acquired Danaher securities from April 21, 2022 through April 24, 2023 (the “Class Period”). Investors who acquired Danaher securities during this defined timeframe are strongly encouraged to participate in this case by contacting email@example.com. The deadline to file a motion for appointment of lead plaintiff is September 15, 2023.
The fundamental objective of this class action lawsuit is to recover for the benefit of investors who purchased Danaher securities during the Class Period, the losses they sustained as a consequence of the misleading statements made by Defendants in violation of the federal securities laws.
ALLEGATIONS AGAINST DANAHER CORPORATION
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) as the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic subsided, revenue growth associated with Danaher’s COVID-19-related businesses was declining; (ii) contrary to the Company’s prior representations to investors, revenues associated with Danaher’s non-COVID-19-related businesses were insufficient to compensate for the foregoing negative trend; (iii) accordingly, Danaher overstated the Company’s ability to sustain the growth it had experienced in 2020 and 2021; (iv) as a result, it was unlikely that Danaher would be able to meet its 2023 revenue forecasts; and (v) as a result, Defendants’ public statements were materially false and/or misleading at all relevant times. On April 25, 2023, Danaher issued a press release announcing its financial results for the first quarter of 2023. Among other items, Danaher reported that “[r]evenues decreased 7.0% year-over-year to $7.2 billion, with a 4.0% non-GAAP core revenue decrease, due to the impact of lower COVID-19 revenue, and 6.0% non-GAAP base business core revenue growth.” The Company also projected that “[f]or the second quarter and full year 2023, . . . non-GAAP base business core revenue growth will be up mid-single digits year-over-year”, down from an earlier projection of high-single-digit growth. Notably, this announcement appeared to be at odds with Danaher’s prior reassurances that revenues associated with the Company’s non-COVID-19-related businesses would compensate for the foregoing negative results. On this news, Danaher’s stock price fell $22.36 per share, or 8.79%, to close at $231.99 per share on April 25, 2023.

This process entails requesting the Court to designate them as the primary representative on behalf of the entire Class. The deadline for submitting such a request is September 15, 2023. It is important to emphasize that while becoming a lead plaintiff can offer certain advantages, participation in the recovery process and the potential for financial compensation does not mandate serving as a lead plaintiff.
