Shares of Danaher rose nearly 5% in after-market trading. The stock has lost about 14% so far this year.

Danaher, which currently has a market capitalization of more than $200 billion, is the third large conglomerate this year to announce a spin-off after Kellogg Co and 3M Co.

“With today’s announcement, Danaher will become a more focused science and technology leader,” Chief Executive Rainer Blair said in a statement.

The EAS business, which has a global workforce of 16,000, offers water quality and product identification solutions including consumer packaging and drinking water purification to a wide range of sectors such as industrial and pharmaceutical.

In 2021, the EAS unit generated revenue of about $4.7 billion, while Danaher’s total revenue increased 32% to $29.5 billion.

Danaher said it expects the transaction to be tax-free to its shareholders. (Reporting by Manya Saini in Bengaluru; Editing by Maju Samuel)
