               DOCUMENTS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE

     Annual Report to Shareholders for Fiscal Year ended June 30,
1995 - Parts I, II, and IV.

     Proxy Statement for Annual Meeting of Shareholders dated
September 13, 1995 - Part III.


PART I Item 1. BUSINESS (a) General Development of Business. The Perkin-Elmer Corporation was incorporated in 1939 under the laws of the State of New York. Together with its consolidated subsidiaries, The Perkin-Elmer Corporation (hereinafter collectively referred to as "Registrant" or the "Corporation") develops, manufactures, and sells products in the industry segment described in sub-item (c) below. On February 18, 1993, the shareholders of Registrant and Applied Biosystems, Inc. ("ABI"), a supplier of automated systems for life science research and related applications, approved the merger of a subsidiary of Registrant with and into ABI which resulted in ABI becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Registrant. Effective July 1, 1994, ABI was merged into Registrant and is now the Applied Biosystems division of Registrant. On April 18, 1994, Registrant entered into an agreement with Sulzer Inc. to sell its Material Sciences segment consisting of its Metco Division ("Metco") headquartered in Westbury, New York. Registrant completed the sale on September 30, 1994. The consolidated financial statements and schedules reflect the merger with ABI as a pooling of interests and present the Corporation's Material Sciences segment as a discontinued operation. On May 18, 1993, Registrant amended its By-laws to change Registrant's fiscal year end from July 31 to June 30. Prior to fiscal year 1993, the financial statements of ABI and Registrant's subsidiaries outside the United States were for the years ended June 30, while Registrant's domestic operations were reported on a July 31 fiscal year end. (b) Financial Information About Industry Segments. Registrant is engaged in one business segment, which is generally described as analytical instruments and includes life science systems. Accordingly, separate segment financial information is not provided. -1-

(c) Narrative Description of Business. BUSINESS Registrant develops, manufactures, markets, sells, and services analytical instrument systems. Included in this industry segment are biochemical analytical instrument systems, consisting of instruments and associated consumable products, for life science research and related applications. These automated systems are used for synthesis, amplification, purification, isolation, analysis and sequencing of nucleic acids, proteins, and other biological molecules. This industry segment also includes analytical instrument systems for determining the composition and molecular structure of chemical substances (both organic and inorganic) and measuring the concentration of materials in a sample. These instruments include: spectrophotometers utilizing a number of analytical techniques; gas and liquid chromatographs; thermal analyzers; thermal cyclers; analytical balances; flame photometers; polarimeters; data-handling devices that are principally designed for use with analytical instruments; and data systems for applications in analytical chemistry. In a joint venture, Perkin-Elmer Sciex Instruments, Registrant is engaged in the manufacture and sale of mass spectrometry instrument systems. Registrant also develops, manufactures, markets, and services on-line, real time, process analysis systems to monitor process quality and environmental purity. Registrant's instruments are used by private industry, educational and research institutions, and governmental entities for fundamental research, applied industrial research, quality control, medical research, hospital clinical testing, pollution analysis, drug identification, and forensics. MARKETING AND DISTRIBUTION In the United States, Registrant markets the largest portion of its products directly through its own sales and distribution organization, although certain analytical instruments are marketed through independent distributors and sales representatives. Sales to major markets outside of the United States are generally made by the Registrant's foreign based sales and service staff, although some sales are made directly from the United States to foreign customers. In certain foreign countries, sales are made through various representative and distributorship arrangements. Registrant owns or leases sales and service offices in strategic regional locations in the United States, and in foreign countries through its foreign sales subsidiaries and distribution operations. None of Registrant's products is distributed through retail outlets. RAW MATERIALS There are no specialized raw materials that are particularly essential to the operation of Registrant's business. Registrant's manufacturing operations require a wide variety of raw materials, electronic and mechanical components, chemical and biochemical materials, and other supplies, some of which are occasionally found to be in short supply. Registrant has multiple commercial sources for most components and supplies but is dependent on single sources for a limited number of such items, in which case Registrant normally secures long-term supply contracts. -2-

PATENTS, LICENSES, AND FRANCHISES Registrant has pursued a policy of seeking patent protection in the United States and other countries for developments, improvements, and inventions originating within its organization which are incorporated in Registrant's products or which fall within its fields of interest. Certain licenses under patents have been granted to, and received from, other entities. Registrant has certain rights from Hoffmann-La Roche Inc. under patents relating to polymerase chain reaction technology ("PCR"), which patents expire in 2004. Registrant also has rights under a patent issued to the California Institute of Technology relating to DNA sequencing, which patent expires in 2009. In Registrant's opinion, however, no other single patent or license, or group of patents or licenses, or any franchise, is material to its business as a whole. From time to time, Registrant has asserted that various competitors and others are infringing Registrant's patents and similarly, from time to time, others have asserted that Registrant was infringing patents owned by them. Generally, such claims are settled by mutual agreement on a satisfactory basis and result in the granting of licenses by Registrant or the granting of licenses to Registrant. SEASONAL FLUCTUATIONS Registrant's business is not subject to pronounced seasonal fluctuations. BACKLOG Registrant's recorded backlog was $167.0 million at June 30, 1995 and $154.5 million at June 30, 1994. It is Registrant's general policy to include in backlog only purchase orders or production releases which have firm delivery dates within one year. Recorded backlog may not result in sales because of cancellation or other factors. It is anticipated that all orders included in the current backlog will be delivered before the close of fiscal year 1996. UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT SALES No material portion of Registrant's business is subject to renegotiation of profits or termination of contracts or subcontracts at the election of the United States Government. COMPETITION The industry segment in which Registrant operates is highly competitive and is characterized by the application of advanced technology. There are numerous companies which specialize in, and a number of larger companies which devote a significant portion of their resources to, the development, manufacture, and sale of products which compete with those manufactured or sold by Registrant. Many of Registrant's competitors are well-known manufacturers with a high degree of technical proficiency. In addition, competition is intensified by the ever-changing nature of the technologies in the industry in which Registrant is engaged. The markets for Registrant's products are characterized by specialized manufacturers that often have strength in narrow segments of these markets. While the absence of reliable statistics makes it difficult to determine Registrant's relative market position, Registrant is confident it is one of the principal manufacturers in its field, marketing a broad line of analytical instruments and life science systems. In addition to competing in terms of the technology that Registrant offers, Registrant competes in terms of price, service, and quality. -3-

RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, AND ENGINEERING Registrant is actively engaged in basic and applied research, development, and engineering programs designed to develop new products and to improve existing products. During fiscal years 1995, 1994, and 1993, Registrant spent $95.1 million, $94.2 million, and $83.8 million, respectively, on company sponsored research, development, and engineering activities. ENVIRONMENTAL MATTERS Registrant is subject to federal, state, and local laws and regulations regulating the discharge of materials into the environment, or otherwise relating to the protection of the environment, in those jurisdictions where Registrant operates or maintains facilities. Registrant does not believe that compliance with all environmental provisions will have a material effect on its business, and no material capital expenditures are expected for environmental control. EMPLOYEES As of June 30, 1995, Registrant employed 5,890 persons worldwide. None of Registrant's United States employees is subject to collective bargaining agreements. (d) Financial Information About Foreign and Domestic Operations and Export Sales. A summary of net revenues to unaffiliated customers, operating income, and identifiable assets attributable to each of Registrant's geographic areas and export sales for the fiscal years 1995, 1994, and 1993 is incorporated herein by reference to Note 6 on Pages 38-39 of the Annual Report to Shareholders for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1995. Registrant's consolidated net revenues to unaffiliated customers in countries other than the United States for the fiscal years 1995, 1994, and 1993 were $669.8 million, $606.7 million, and $606.8 million, or 63.0%, 59.2%, and 60.0%, respectively, of Registrant's consolidated net revenues. All of the Registrant's manufacturing facilities outside of the continental United States are located in Germany, the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Japan, and the Peoples Republic of China. The manufacturing facility in Puerto Rico is expected to be closed by December 31, 1995. There are currently no material foreign exchange controls or similar limitations restricting the repatriation to the United States of capital or earnings from operations outside the United States. (e) Discontinued Operations. On September 30, 1994, Registrant sold Metco, comprising its Material Sciences segment, headquartered in Westbury, New York to Sulzer Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sulzer, Ltd., Winterthur, Switzerland. The consolidated financial statements and schedules present Registrant's Material Sciences segment as a discontinued operation. Item 2. PROPERTIES Listed below are the principal facilities of Registrant as of June 30, 1995. Registrant considers all facilities listed below to be reasonably appropriate for the purpose(s) -4-

for which they are used, including manufacturing, research and development, and administrative purposes. All properties are maintained in good working order and, except for those held for sale or lease, are substantially utilized on the basis of at least one shift. None of the leased facilities is leased from an affiliate of Registrant. Approximate Owned or Expiration Floor Area Location Leased Date of Leases In Sq. Ft.

In addition to the facilities listed above, Registrant leases space in certain industrial centers for use as regional sales and service offices, technical demonstration centers, and warehousing. Registrant also owns undeveloped land in Redding, Connecticut, Vacaville, California, and Ueberlingen, Germany. In addition to the properties used by Registrant in its operations, Registrant owns three facilities in Wilton, Connecticut (aggregating approximately 248,000 square feet) which are currently leased to SVG Lithography Systems, Inc. for a term expiring in 2010, a facility in Garden Grove, California (approximately 82,000 square feet) which is currently leased to OCA Applied Optics, Inc. for a term expiring in 2002, and a facility in Pomona, California (approximately 135,000 square feet) which is currently leased to Orbital Sciences Corporation for a term expiring in 2003. Registrant also owns a facility in Ridgefield, Connecticut (approximately 201,000 square feet), two facilities in Wilton, Connecticut (approximately 51,000 square feet and 42,000 square feet), and a facility in San Jose, California (approximately 67,000 square feet) which are held for sale or lease. One of the facilities in Wilton is leased on a long- term basis, and the facility in San Jose and a portion of the remaining facility in Wilton are leased on a short-term basis. Item 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS The Corporation has been named as a defendant in various legal actions arising from the conduct of its normal business activities. Although the amount of any liability that might arise with respect to any of these matters cannot be accurately predicted, the resulting liability, if any, will not, in the opinion of management of Registrant, have a material adverse effect on the consolidated financial statements of Registrant. -5-

Registrant is one of approximately 125 third party defendants named in a third party complaint dated February 19, 1993 in United States of America v. Davis et al., which is pending in the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island. The third party plaintiffs, who were named as defendants and potentially responsible parties in the Government's initial complaint, sought equitable contribution and indemnification in the event they were found liable for remediation costs relating to the removal of hazardous substances from a site located in Smithfield, Rhode Island (such costs initially were estimated by the Government to be $27.8 million, but most recent estimates of such costs appear to be in the $40 million range). All but one of the third party plaintiffs settled with the Government for a total of approximately $6 million, and a trial on the question of the remaining third party plaintiff's liability to the Government resulted in an April 22, 1995 Memorandum and Order in which the Court found such plaintiff, United Technologies Corporation, liable as a "generator" of hazardous wastes deposited at the site. A trial on the amount of such liability currently is scheduled for October 1995. Until the amount of liability of all of the third party plaintiffs (including United Technologies) has been established by litigation or settlement of that issue, the Court will not consider the validity of any third party claims. While the Registrant contends that it should have no liability in this case, because of the uncertainty of all litigation it cannot definitively state that it will incur less than $100,000 in monetary liability. Item 4. SUBMISSION OF MATTERS TO A VOTE OF SECURITY HOLDERS No matter was submitted to a vote of security holders, through the solicitation of proxies or otherwise, during the fourth quarter of the fiscal year covered by this report. -6-

(c) Each Euro-Dollar Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof, for each day during the Interest Period applicable thereto, at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the Euro-Dollar Margin for such day plus the Adjusted London Interbank Offered Rate applicable to such Interest Period. Such interest shall be payable for each Interest Period on the last day thereof and, if such Interest Period is longer than three months, at intervals of three months after the first day thereof. "Euro-Dollar Margin" means a rate per annum determined in accordance with the Pricing Schedule. The "Adjusted London Interbank Offered Rate" applicable to any Interest Period means a rate per annum equal to the quotient obtained (rounded upward, if necessary, to the next higher 1/100 of 1%) by dividing (i) the applicable London Interbank Offered Rate by (ii) 1.00 minus the Euro-Dollar Reserve Percentage. The "London Interbank Offered Rate" applicable to any Interest Period means the average (rounded upward, if -22-

necessary, to the next higher 1/16 of 1%) of the respective rates per annum at which deposits in dollars are offered to each of the Euro-Dollar Reference Banks in the London interbank market at approximately 11:00 A.M. (London time) two Euro-Dollar Business Days before the first day of such Interest Period in an amount approximately equal to the principal amount of the Euro-Dollar Loan of such Euro-Dollar Reference Bank to which such Interest Period is to apply and for a period of time comparable to such Interest Period. "Euro-Dollar Reserve Percentage" means for any day that percentage (expressed as a decimal) which is in effect on such day, as prescribed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (or any successor) for determining the maximum reserve requirement for a member bank of the Federal Reserve System in New York City with deposits exceeding five billion dollars in respect of "Eurocurrency liabilities" (or in respect of any other category of liabilities which includes deposits by reference to which the interest rate on Euro-Dollar Loans is determined or any category of extensions of credit or other assets which includes loans by a non-United States office of any Bank to United States residents). The Adjusted London Interbank Offered Rate shall be adjusted automatically on and as of the effective date of any change in the Euro-Dollar Reserve Percentage. (d) Any overdue principal of or interest on any Euro-Dollar Loan shall bear interest, payable on demand, for each day until paid at a rate per annum equal to the higher of (i) the sum of 2% plus the Euro-Dollar Margin for such day plus the Adjusted London Interbank Offered Rate applicable to the Interest Period for such Loan and (ii) the sum of 2% plus the Euro-Dollar Margin for such day plus the quotient obtained (rounded upward, if necessary, to the next higher 1/100 of 1%) by dividing (x) the average (rounded upward, if necessary, to the next higher 1/16 of 1%) of the respective rates per annum at which one day (or, if such amount due remains unpaid more than three Euro-Dollar Business Days, then for such other period of time not longer than six months as the Agent may select) deposits in dollars in an amount approximately equal to such overdue payment due to each of the Euro-Dollar Reference Banks are offered to such Euro-Dollar Reference Bank in the London interbank market for the applicable period determined as provided above by (y) 1.00 minus the Euro-Dollar Reserve Percentage (or, if the circumstances described in clause (a) or (b) of Section 8.01 shall exist, at a rate per annum equal to the sum of 2% plus the rate applicable to Base Rate Loans for such day). -23-

(e) Subject to Section 8.01(a), each Money Market LIBOR Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof, for the Interest Period applicable thereto, at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the London Interbank Offered Rate for such Interest Period (determined in accordance with Section 2.07(c) as if the related Money Market LIBOR Borrowing were a Committed Euro-Dollar Borrowing) plus (or minus) the Money Market Margin quoted by the Bank making such Loan in accordance with Section 2.03. Each Money Market Absolute Rate Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof, for the Interest Period applicable thereto, at a rate per annum equal to the Money Market Absolute Rate quoted by the Bank making such Loan in accordance with Section 2.03. Such interest shall be payable for each Interest Period on the last day thereof and, if such Interest Period is longer than three months, at intervals of three months after the first day thereof. Any overdue principal of or interest on any Money Market Loan shall bear interest, payable on demand, for each day until paid at a rate per annum equal to the sum of 2% plus the Base Rate for such day. (f) The Agent shall determine each interest rate applicable to the Loans hereunder. The Agent shall give prompt notice to the Borrower and the participating Banks of each rate of interest so determined, and its determination thereof shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. (g) Each Reference Bank agrees to use its best efforts to furnish quotations to the Agent as contemplated by this Section. If any Reference Bank does not furnish a timely quotation, the Agent shall determine the relevant interest rate on the basis of the quotation or quotations furnished by the remaining Reference Bank or Banks or, if none of such quotations is available on a timely basis, the provisions of Section 8.01 shall apply. SECTION 2.08. Fees. (a) Commitment Fee. During the Revolving Credit Period, the Borrower shall pay to the Agent for the account of the Banks ratably in proportion to their Commitments a commitment fee at the Commitment Fee Rate (determined daily in accordance with the Pricing Schedule) on the daily amount by which the aggregate amount of the Commitments exceeds the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Loans. Such commitment fee shall accrue from and including the Effective Date to but excluding the Termination Date (or earlier date of termination of the Commitments in their entirety). -24-

(b) Facility Fee. The Borrower shall pay to the Agent for the account of the Banks ratably a facility fee at the Facility Fee Rate (determined daily in accordance with the Pricing Schedule). Such facility fee shall accrue (i) from and including the Effective Date to but excluding the Termination Date (or earlier date of termination of the Commitments in their entirety), on the daily aggregate amount of the Commitments (whether used or unused) and (ii) from and including the Termination Date or such earlier date of termination to but excluding the date the Loans shall be repaid in their entirety, on the daily aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Loans. (c) Payments. Accrued fees under this Section shall be payable quarterly on each March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31, and upon the date of termination of the Commitments in their entirety (and, if later, the date the Loans shall be repaid in their entirety). SECTION 2.09. Optional Termination or Reduction of Commitments. During the Revolving Credit Period, the Borrower may, upon at least three Domestic Business Days' notice to the Agent, (i) terminate the Commitments at any time, if no Loans are outstanding at such time or (ii) ratably reduce from time to time by an aggregate amount of $10,000,000 or any larger multiple thereof, the aggregate amount of the Commitments in excess of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Loans. SECTION 2.10. Scheduled Termination of Commitments. The Commitments shall terminate on the Termination Date, and any Loans then outstanding (together with accrued interest thereon) shall be due and payable on such date. SECTION 2.11. Optional Prepayments. (a) Subject in the case of any Fixed Rate Borrowing to Section 2.13, the Borrower may, upon at least one Domestic Business Day's notice to the Agent, prepay any Base Rate Borrowing (or any Money Market Borrowing bearing interest at the Base Rate pursuant to Section 8.01(a)), upon at least three Domestic Business Days' notice to the Agent, prepay any CD Borrowing or upon at least three Euro-Dollar Business Days' notice to the Agent, prepay any Euro-Dollar Borrowing, in each case in whole at any time, or from time to time in part in amounts aggregating $10,000,000 or any larger multiple of $1,000,000, by paying the principal amount to be prepaid together with accrued interest thereon to the date of prepayment. Each such optional prepayment shall be applied -25-

to prepay ratably the Loans of the several Banks included in such Borrowing. (b) Except as provided in Section 2.11(a), the Borrower may not prepay all or any portion of the principal amount of any Money Market Loan prior to the maturity thereof. (c) Upon receipt of a notice of prepayment pursuant to this Section, the Agent shall promptly notify each Bank of the contents thereof and of such Bank's ratable share (if any) of such prepayment and such notice shall not thereafter be revocable by the Borrower. SECTION 2.12. General Provisions as to Payments. (a) The Borrower shall make each payment of principal of, and interest on, the Loans and of fees hereunder, not later than 12:00 Noon (New York City time) on the date when due, in Federal or other funds immediately available in New York City, to the Agent at its address referred to in Section 9.01. The Agent will promptly distribute to each Bank its ratable share of each such payment received by the Agent for the account of the Banks. Whenever any payment of principal of, or interest on, the Domestic Loans or of fees shall be due on a day which is not a Domestic Business Day, the date for payment thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Domestic Business Day. Whenever any payment of principal of, or interest on, the Euro-Dollar Loans shall be due on a day which is not a Euro-Dollar Business Day, the date for payment thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Euro-Dollar Business Day unless such Euro-Dollar Business Day falls in another calendar month, in which case the date for payment thereof shall be the next preceding Euro-Dollar Business Day. Whenever any payment of principal of, or interest on, the Money Market Loans shall be due on a day which is not a Euro-Dollar Business Day, the date for payment thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Euro-Dollar Business Day. If the date for any payment of principal is extended by operation of law or otherwise, interest thereon shall be payable for such extended time. (b) Unless the Agent shall have received notice from the Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Banks hereunder that the Borrower will not make such payment in full, the Agent may assume that the Borrower has made such payment in full to the Agent on such date and the Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, cause to be distributed to each Bank on such due date an amount equal to the amount then due such Bank. If and to the extent that the Borrower shall not have so made such payment, each Bank shall repay to the Agent forthwith on demand such amount -26-

distributed to such Bank together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is distributed to such Bank until the date such Bank repays such amount to the Agent, at the Federal Funds Rate. SECTION 2.13. Funding Losses. If the Borrower makes any payment of principal with respect to any Fixed Rate Loan (pursuant to Article II, VI or VIII or otherwise) on any day other than the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, or the last day of an applicable period fixed pursuant to Section 2.07(d), or if the Borrower fails to borrow or prepay any Fixed Rate Loans after notice has been given to any Bank in accordance with Section 2.04(a) or 2.11(c), the Borrower shall reimburse each Bank within 15 days after demand for any resulting loss or expense incurred by it (or by an existing or prospective Participant in the related Loan), including (without limitation) any loss incurred in obtaining, liquidating or employing deposits from third parties, but excluding loss of margin for the period after any such payment or failure to borrow or prepay, provided that such Bank shall have delivered to the Borrower a certificate as to the amount of such loss or expense, which certificate shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. SECTION 2.14. Computation of Interest and Fees. Interest based on the Prime Rate hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days in a leap year) and paid for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). All other interest and fees shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and paid for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).

SECTION 4.03. Binding Effect. This Agreement constitutes a valid and binding agreement of the Borrower and each Note, when executed and delivered in accordance with this Agreement, will constitute a valid and binding obligation of the Borrower, in each case enforceable in accordance with its terms.

(b) The unaudited consolidated statement of financial position of the Borrower and its Consolidated Subsidiaries as of March 31, 1994 and the related unaudited consolidated statements of operations and cash flows for the nine months then ended, set forth in the Borrower's Latest Form 10-Q, a copy of which has been delivered to each of the Banks, fairly present, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles applied on a basis consistent with the financial statements referred to in subsection (a) of this Section, the consolidated financial position of the Borrower and its Consolidated Subsidiaries as of such date and their consolidated results of operations and cash flows for such nine month period (subject to normal year-end adjustments).

as a whole, or which in any manner draws into question the validity of this Agreement or the Notes. SECTION 4.06. Compliance with ERISA. Each member of the ERISA Group has fulfilled its obligations under the minimum funding standards of ERISA and the Internal Revenue Code with respect to each Plan and is in compliance in all material respects with the presently applicable provisions of ERISA and the Internal Revenue Code with respect to each Plan. No member of the ERISA Group has (i) sought a waiver of the minimum funding standard under Section 412 of the Internal Revenue Code in respect of any Plan, (ii) failed to make any contribution or payment to any Plan or Multiemployer Plan or in respect of any Benefit Arrangement, or made any amendment to any Plan or Benefit Arrangement, which has resulted or could result in the imposition of a Lien or the posting of a bond or other security under ERISA or the Internal Revenue Code or (iii) incurred any liability under Title IV of ERISA other than a liability to the PBGC for premiums under Section 4007 of ERISA. SECTION 4.07. Environmental Matters. In the ordinary course of its business, the Borrower reviews the effect of Environmental Laws on the business, operations and properties of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries, in the course of which it identifies and evaluates associated liabilities and costs (including, without limitation, any capital or operating expenditures required for clean-up or closure of properties presently or previously owned, any capital or operating expenditures required to achieve or maintain compliance with environmental protection standards imposed by law or as a condition of any license, permit or contract, any related constraints on operating activities, including any periodic or permanent shutdown of any facility or reduction in the level of or change in the nature of operations conducted thereat, any costs or liabilities in connection with off-site disposal of wastes or Hazardous Substances, and any actual or potential liabilities to third parties, including employees, and any related costs and expenses).

Subsidiaries. Each of the Borrower's Significant Subsidiaries is a corporation duly incorporated, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of incorporation, and has all corporate powers and all material governmental licenses, authorizations, consents and approvals required to carry on its business as now conducted.

ARTICLE VII THE AGENT SECTION 7.01. Appointment and Authorization. Each Bank irrevocably appoints and authorizes the Agent to take such action as agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers under this Agreement and the Notes as are delegated to the Agent by the terms hereof or thereof, together with all such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. SECTION 7.02. Agent and Affiliates. Morgan Guaranty Trust Company of New York shall have the same rights and powers under this Agreement as any other Bank and may exercise or refrain from exercising the same as though it were not the Agent, and Morgan Guaranty Trust Company of New York and its affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, and generally engage in any kind of business with the Borrower or any Subsidiary or affiliate of the Borrower as if it were not the Agent hereunder. SECTION 7.03. Action by Agent. The obligations of the Agent hereunder are only those expressly set forth herein. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Agent shall not be required to take any action with respect to any Default, except as expressly provided in Article VI. SECTION 7.04. Consultation with Experts. The Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be counsel for the Borrower), independent public accountants and other experts selected by it and shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it in good faith in accordance with the advice of such counsel, accountants or experts. SECTION 7.05. Liability of Agent. Neither the Agent nor any of its affiliates nor any of their respective directors, officers, agents or employees shall be liable for any action taken or not taken by it in connection herewith (i) with the consent or at the request of the Required Banks or (ii) in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct. Neither the Agent nor any of its affiliates nor any of their respective directors, officers, agents or employees shall be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain, inquire into or verify (i) any statement, warranty or representation made in connection with this Agreement or any borrowing hereunder; (ii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants or agreements of the Borrower; (iii) the satisfaction of any condition specified -41-

in Article III, except receipt of items required to be delivered to the Agent; or (iv) the validity, effectiveness or genuineness of this Agreement, the Notes or any other instrument or writing furnished in connection herewith. The Agent shall not incur any liability by acting in reliance upon any notice, consent, certificate, statement, or other writing (which may be a bank wire, telex, facsimile transmission or similar writing) believed by it to be genuine or to be signed by the proper party or parties. SECTION 7.06. Indemnification. Each Bank shall, ratably in accordance with its Commitment, indemnify the Agent, its affiliates and their respective directors, officers, agents and employees (to the extent not reimbursed by the Borrower) against any cost, expense (including counsel fees and disbursements), claim, demand, action, loss or liability (except such as result from such indemnitees' gross negligence or willful misconduct) that such indemnitees may suffer or incur in connection with this Agreement or any action taken or omitted by such indemnitees hereunder. SECTION 7.07. Credit Decision. Each Bank acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Agent or any other Bank, and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement. Each Bank also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Agent or any other Bank, and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking any action under this Agreement. SECTION 7.08. Successor Agent. The Agent may resign at any time by giving notice thereof to the Banks and the Borrower. Upon any such resignation, the Required Banks shall have the right to appoint a successor Agent. If no successor Agent shall have been so appointed by the Required Banks, and shall have accepted such appointment, within 30 days after the retiring Agent gives notice of resignation, then the retiring Agent may, on behalf of the Banks, appoint a successor Agent, which shall be a commercial bank organized or licensed under the laws of the United States of America or of any State thereof and having a combined capital and surplus of at least $50,000,000. Upon the acceptance of its appointment as Agent hereunder by a successor Agent, such successor Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights and duties of the retiring Agent, and the retiring Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. After -42-

any retiring Agent's resignation hereunder as Agent, the provisions of this Article shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was Agent. SECTION 7.09. Agent's Fee. The Borrower shall pay to the Agent for its own account fees in the amounts and at the times previously agreed upon between the Borrower and the Agent. ARTICLE VIII CHANGE IN CIRCUMSTANCES SECTION 8.01. Basis for Determining Interest Rate Inadequate or Unfair. If on or prior to the first day of any Interest Period for any Fixed Rate Borrowing: (a) the Agent is advised by the Reference Banks that deposits in dollars (in the applicable amounts) are not being offered to the Reference Banks in the relevant market for such Interest Period, or (b) in the case of a Committed Borrowing, Banks having 50% or more of the aggregate amount of the Commitments advise the Agent that the Adjusted CD Rate or the Adjusted London Interbank Offered Rate, as the case may be, as determined by the Agent will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Banks of funding their CD Loans or Euro-Dollar Loans, as the case may be, for such Interest Period, the Agent shall forthwith give notice thereof to the Borrower and the Banks, whereupon until the Agent notifies the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such suspension no longer exist, the obligations of the Banks to make CD Loans or Euro-Dollar Loans, as the case may be, shall be suspended. Unless the Borrower notifies the Agent at least two Domestic Business Days before the date of any Fixed Rate Borrowing for which a Notice of Borrowing has previously been given that it elects not to borrow on such date, (i) if such Fixed Rate Borrowing is a Committed Borrowing, such Borrowing shall instead be made as a Base Rate Borrowing and (ii) if such Fixed Rate Borrowing is a Money Market LIBOR Borrowing, the Money Market LIBOR Loans comprising such Borrowing shall bear interest for each day from and including the first day to but excluding the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto at the Base Rate for such day. -43-

SECTION 8.02. Illegality. If, on or after the date of this Agreement, the adoption of any applicable law, rule or regulation, or any change in any applicable law, rule or regulation, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any governmental authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by any Bank (or its Euro-Dollar Lending Office) with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency shall make it unlawful or impossible for any Bank (or its Euro-Dollar Lending Office) to make, maintain or fund its Euro-Dollar Loans and such Bank shall so notify the Agent, the Agent shall forthwith give notice thereof to the other Banks and the Borrower, whereupon until such Bank notifies the Borrower and the Agent that the circumstances giving rise to such suspension no longer exist, the obligation of such Bank to make Euro-Dollar Loans shall be suspended. Before giving any notice to the Agent pursuant to this Section, such Bank shall designate a different Euro-Dollar Lending Office if such designation will avoid the need for giving such notice and will not, in the judgment of such Bank, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Bank. If such Bank shall determine that it may not lawfully continue to maintain and fund any of its outstanding Euro-Dollar Loans to maturity and shall so specify in such notice, the Borrower shall immediately prepay in full the then outstanding principal amount of each such Euro-Dollar Loan, together with accrued interest thereon. Concurrently with prepaying each such Euro-Dollar Loan, the Borrower shall borrow a Base Rate Loan in an equal principal amount from such Bank (on which interest and principal shall be payable contemporaneously with the related Euro-Dollar Loans of the other Banks), and such Bank shall make such a Base Rate Loan. SECTION 8.03. Increased Cost and Reduced Return. (a) If on or after (x) the date hereof, in the case of any Committed Loan or any obligation to make Committed Loans or (y) the date of the related Money Market Quote, in the case of any Money Market Loan, the adoption of any applicable law, rule or regulation, or any change in any applicable law, rule or regulation, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any governmental authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by any Bank (or its Applicable Lending Office) with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency shall impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve (including, -44-

without limitation, any such requirement imposed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, but excluding (i) with respect to any CD Loan any such requirement included in an applicable Domestic Reserve Percentage and (ii) with respect to any Euro-Dollar Loan any such requirement included in an applicable Euro-Dollar Reserve Percentage), special deposit, insurance assessment (excluding, with respect to any CD Loan, any such requirement reflected in an applicable Assessment Rate) or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, any Bank (or its Applicable Lending Office) or shall impose on any Bank (or its Applicable Lending Office) or on the United States market for certificates of deposit or the London interbank market any other condition affecting its Fixed Rate Loans, its Note or its obligation to make Fixed Rate Loans and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Bank (or its Applicable Lending Office) of making or maintaining any Fixed Rate Loan, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Bank (or its Applicable Lending Office) under this Agreement or under its Note with respect thereto, by an amount deemed by such Bank to be material, then, within 15 days after demand by such Bank (with a copy to the Agent), the Borrower shall pay to such Bank such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Bank for such increased cost or reduction. (b) If any Bank shall have determined that, after the date hereof, the adoption of any applicable law, rule or regulation regarding capital adequacy, or any change in any such law, rule or regulation, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any governmental authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or any request or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on capital of such Bank (or its Parent) as a consequence of such Bank's obligations hereunder to a level below that which such Bank (or its Parent) could have achieved but for such adoption, change, request or directive (taking into consideration its policies with respect to capital adequacy) by an amount deemed by such Bank to be material, then from time to time, within 15 days after demand by such Bank (with a copy to the Agent), the Borrower shall pay to such Bank such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Bank (or its Parent) for such reduction. -45-

(c) Each Bank will promptly notify the Borrower and the Agent of any event of which it has knowledge, occurring after the date hereof, which will entitle such Bank to compensation pursuant to this Section and will designate a different Applicable Lending Office if such designation will avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, such compensation and will not, in the judgment of such Bank, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Bank. A certificate of any Bank claiming compensation under this Section and setting forth the additional amount or amounts to be paid to it hereunder shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. In determining such amount, such Bank may use any reasonable averaging and attribution methods. SECTION 8.04. Taxes. (a) For purposes of this Section 8.04, the following terms have the following meanings: "Taxes" means any and all present or future taxes, duties, levies, imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings with respect to any payment by the Borrower pursuant to this Agreement or under any Note, and all liabilities with respect thereto, excluding (i) in the case of each Bank and the Agent, taxes imposed on its income, and franchise or similar taxes imposed on it, by a jurisdiction under the laws of which such Bank or the Agent (as the case may be) is organized or in which its principal executive office is located or, in the case of each Bank, in which its Applicable Lending Office is located and (ii) in the case of each Bank, any United States withholding tax imposed on such payments but only to the extent that such Bank is subject to United States withholding tax at the time such Bank first becomes a party to this Agreement. "Other Taxes" means any present or future stamp or documentary taxes and any other excise or property taxes, or similar charges or levies, which arise from any payment made pursuant to this Agreement or under any Note or from the execution or delivery of, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement or any Note. (b) Any and all payments by the Borrower to or for the account of any Bank or the Agent hereunder or under any Note shall be made without deduction for any Taxes or Other Taxes; provided that, if the Borrower shall be required by law to deduct any Taxes or Other Taxes from any such payments, (i) the sum payable shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 8.04) such Bank or the Agent (as the case -46-

may be) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the Borrower shall make such deductions, (iii) the Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant taxation authority or other authority in accordance with applicable law and (iv) the Borrower shall furnish to the Agent, at its address referred to in Section 9.01, the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing payment thereof. (c) The Borrower agrees to indemnify each Bank and the Agent for the full amount of Taxes or Other Taxes (including, without limitation, any Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section 8.04) paid by such Bank or the Agent (as the case may be) and any liability (including penalties, interest and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto. This indemnification shall be paid within 15 days after such Bank or the Agent (as the case may be) makes demand therefor. (d) Each Bank organized under the laws of a jurisdiction outside the United States, on or prior to the date of its execution and delivery of this Agreement in the case of each Bank listed on the signature pages hereof and on or prior to the date on which it becomes a Bank in the case of each other Bank, and from time to time thereafter if requested in writing by the Borrower (but only so long as such Bank remains lawfully able to do so), shall provide the Borrower with Internal Revenue Service form 1001 or 4224, as appropriate, or any successor form prescribed by the Internal Revenue Service, certifying that such Bank is entitled to benefits under an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party which exempts the Bank from United States withholding tax or reduces the rate of withholding tax on payments of interest for the account of such Bank or certifying that the income receivable pursuant to this Agreement is effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business in the United States. (e) For any period with respect to which a Bank has failed to provide the Borrower with the appropriate form pursuant to Section 8.04(d) (unless such failure is due to a change in treaty, law or regulation occurring subsequent to the date on which such form originally was required to be provided), such Bank shall not be entitled to indemnification under Section 8.04(b) or (c) with respect to Taxes imposed by the United States; provided that if a Bank, which is otherwise exempt from or subject to a reduced rate of withholding tax, becomes subject to Taxes because of its failure to deliver a form required hereunder, the Borrower -47-

shall take such steps as such Bank shall reasonably request to assist such Bank to recover such Taxes. (f) If the Borrower is required to pay additional amounts to or for the account of any Bank pursuant to this Section 8.04, then such Bank will change the jurisdiction of its Applicable Lending Office if, in the judgment of such Bank, such change (i) will eliminate or reduce any such additional payment which may thereafter accrue and (ii) is not otherwise disadvantageous to such Bank. SECTION 8.05. Base Rate Loans Substituted for Affected Fixed Rate Loans. If (i) the obligation of any Bank to make Euro-Dollar Loans has been suspended pursuant to Section 8.02 or (ii) any Bank has demanded compensation under Section 8.03 or 8.04 with respect to its CD Loans or Euro-Dollar Loans and the Borrower shall, by at least five Euro-Dollar Business Days' prior notice to such Bank through the Agent, have elected that the provisions of this Section shall apply to such Bank, then, unless and until such Bank notifies the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such suspension or demand for compensation no longer exist: (a) all Loans which would otherwise be made by such Bank as CD Loans or Euro-Dollar Loans, as the case may be, shall be made instead as Base Rate Loans (on which interest and principal shall be payable contemporaneously with the related Fixed Rate Loans of the other Banks), and (b) after each of its CD Loans or Euro-Dollar Loans, as the case may be, has been repaid, all payments of principal which would otherwise be applied to repay such Fixed Rate Loans shall be applied to repay its Base Rate Loans instead. SECTION 8.06. Substitution of Bank. If (i) the obligation of any Bank to make Euro-Dollar Loans has been suspended pursuant to Section 8.02 or (ii) any Bank has demanded compensation under Section 8.03 or 8.04, the Borrower shall have the right, with the assistance of the Agent, to seek a mutually satisfactory substitute bank or banks (which may be one or more of the Banks) to purchase the Note and assume the Commitment of such Bank. -48-

ARTICLE IX MISCELLANEOUS SECTION 9.01. Notices. All notices, requests and other communications to any party hereunder shall be in writing (including bank wire, telex, facsimile transmission or similar writing) and shall be given to such party: (x) in the case of the Borrower or the Agent, at its address, facsimile number or telex number set forth on the signature pages hereof, (y) in the case of any Bank, at its address, facsimile number or telex number set forth in its Administrative Questionnaire or (z) in the case of any party, such other address, facsimile number or telex number as such party may hereafter specify for the purpose by notice to the Agent and the Borrower. Each such notice, request or other communication shall be effective (i) if given by telex, when such telex is transmitted to the telex number specified in this Section and the appropriate answerback is received, (ii) if given by facsimile transmission, when transmitted to the facsimile number specified in this Section and confirmation of receipt is received, (iii) if given by mail, 72 hours after such communication is deposited in the mails with first class postage prepaid, addressed as aforesaid or (iv) if given by any other means, when delivered at the address specified in this Section; provided that notices to the Agent under Article II or Article VIII shall not be effective until received. SECTION 9.02. No Waivers. No failure or delay by the Agent or any Bank in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder or under any Note shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege. The rights and remedies herein provided shall be cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law. SECTION 9.03. Expenses; Indemnification. (a) The Borrower shall pay (i) all out-of-pocket expenses of the Agent, including fees and disbursements of special counsel for the Agent, in connection with the preparation and administration of this Agreement, any waiver or consent hereunder or any amendment hereof or any Default or alleged Default hereunder and (ii) if an Event of Default occurs, all out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Agent and each Bank, including (without duplication) the fees and disbursements of outside counsel and the allocated cost of inside counsel, in connection with such Event of Default and -49-

collection, bankruptcy, insolvency and other enforcement proceedings resulting therefrom. (b) The Borrower agrees to indemnify the Agent and each Bank, their respective affiliates and the respective directors, officers, agents and employees of the foregoing (each an "Indemnitee") and hold each Indemnitee harmless from and against any and all liabilities, losses, damages, costs and expenses of any kind, including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel, which may be incurred by such Indemnitee in connection with any investigative, administrative or judicial proceeding (whether or not such Indemnitee shall be designated a party thereto) brought or threatened relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any actual or proposed use of proceeds of Loans hereunder; provided that no Indemnitee shall have the right to be indemnified hereunder for such Indemnitee's own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction. SECTION 9.04. Sharing of Set-Offs. Each Bank agrees that if it shall, by exercising any right of set-off or counterclaim or otherwise, receive payment of a proportion of the aggregate amount of principal and interest due with respect to any Note held by it which is greater than the proportion received by any other Bank in respect of the aggregate amount of principal and interest due with respect to any Note held by such other Bank, the Bank receiving such proportionately greater payment shall purchase such participations in the Notes held by the other Banks, and such other adjustments shall be made, as may be required so that all such payments of principal and interest with respect to the Notes held by the Banks shall be shared by the Banks pro rata; provided that nothing in this Section shall impair the right of any Bank to exercise any right of set-off or counterclaim it may have and to apply the amount subject to such exercise to the payment of indebtedness of the Borrower other than its indebtedness hereunder. The Borrower agrees, to the fullest extent it may effectively do so under applicable law, that any holder of a participation in a Note, whether or not acquired pursuant to the foregoing arrangements, may exercise rights of set-off or counterclaim and other rights with respect to such participation as fully as if such holder of a participation were a direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation. SECTION 9.05. Amendments and Waivers. Any provision of this Agreement or the Notes may be amended or waived if, but only if, such amendment or waiver is in writing and is signed by the Borrower and the Required Banks -50-

(and, if the rights or duties of the Agent are affected thereby, by the Agent); provided that no such amendment or waiver shall, unless signed by all the Banks, (i) increase or decrease the Commitment of any Bank (except for a ratable decrease in the Commitments of all Banks) or subject any Bank to any additional obligation, (ii) reduce the principal of, accrued interest on, or rate of interest on any Loan or any fees hereunder, (iii) postpone the date fixed for any payment of principal of or interest on any Loan or any fees hereunder or for any reduction or termination of any Commitment, (iv) change the aggregate amount by which or to which the Commitments are required to be reduced on or prior to any Commitment Reduction Date or (v) change the percentage of the Commitments or of the aggregate unpaid principal amount of the Notes, or the number of Banks, which shall be required for the Banks or any of them to take any action under this Section or any other provision of this Agreement. SECTION 9.06. Successors and Assigns. (a) The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns, except that the Borrower may not assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights under this Agreement without the prior written consent of all Banks. (b) Any Bank may at any time grant to one or more banks or other institutions (each a "Participant") participating interests in its Commitment or any or all of its Loans. In the event of any such grant by a Bank of a participating interest to a Participant, whether or not upon notice to the Borrower and the Agent, such Bank shall remain responsible for the performance of its obligations hereunder, and the Borrower and the Agent shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Bank in connection with such Bank's rights and obligations under this Agreement. Any agreement pursuant to which any Bank may grant such a participating interest shall provide that such Bank shall retain the sole right and responsibility to enforce the obligations of the Borrower hereunder including, without limitation, the right to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement; provided that such participation agreement may provide that such Bank will not agree to any modification, amendment or waiver of this Agreement described in clause (i), (ii), (iii) or (iv) of Section 9.05 without the consent of the Participant. The Borrower agrees that each Participant shall, to the extent provided in its participation agreement, be entitled to the benefits of Article VIII with respect to its participating interest. An assignment or other transfer which is not permitted by subsection (c) or (d) below shall be given -51-

effect for purposes of this Agreement only to the extent of a participating interest granted in accordance with this subsection (b). (c) Any Bank may at any time assign to one or more banks or other institutions (each an "Assignee") all, or a proportionate part of all, of its rights and obligations under this Agreement and the Notes, and such Assignee shall assume such rights and obligations, pursuant to an Assignment and Assumption Agreement in substantially the form of Exhibit G hereto executed by such Assignee and such transferor Bank, with (and subject to) the subscribed consent of the Borrower and the Agent; provided that if an Assignee is an affiliate of such transferor Bank or was a Bank immediately prior to such assignment, no such consent shall be required; and provided further that such assignment may, but need not, include rights of the transferor Bank in respect of outstanding Money Market Loans. Upon execution and delivery of such instrument and payment by such Assignee to such transferor Bank of an amount equal to the purchase price agreed between such transferor Bank and such Assignee, such Assignee shall be a Bank party to this Agreement and shall have all the rights and obligations of a Bank with a Commitment as set forth in such instrument of assumption, and the transferor Bank shall be released from its obligations hereunder to a corresponding extent, and no further consent or action by any party shall be required. Upon the consummation of any assignment pursuant to this subsection (c), the transferor Bank, the Agent and the Borrower shall make appropriate arrangements so that, if required, a new Note is issued to the Assignee. In connection with any such assignment, the transferor Bank shall pay to the Agent an administrative fee for processing such assignment in the amount of $2,500. If the Assignee is not incorporated under the laws of the United States of America or a state thereof, it shall deliver to the Borrower and the Agent certification as to exemption from deduction or withholding of any United States federal income taxes in accordance with Section 8.04. (d) Any Bank may at any time assign all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement and its Note to a Federal Reserve Bank. No such assignment shall release the transferor Bank from its obligations hereunder. (e) No Assignee, Participant or other transferee of any Bank's rights shall be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 8.03 or 8.04 than such Bank would have been entitled to receive with respect to the rights transferred, unless such transfer is made with the Borrower's prior written consent or by reason of the -52-

provisions of Section 8.02, 8.03 or 8.04 requiring such Bank to designate a different Applicable Lending Office under certain circumstances or at a time when the circumstances giving rise to such greater payment did not exist. SECTION 9.07. Collateral. Each of the Banks represents to the Agent and each of the other Banks that it in good faith is not relying upon any "margin stock" (as defined in Regulation U) as collateral in the extension or maintenance of the credit provided for in this Agreement. SECTION 9.08. Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction. This Agreement and each Note shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York. The Borrower hereby submits to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and of any New York State court sitting in New York City for purposes of all legal proceedings arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby. The Borrower irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of the venue of any such proceeding brought in such a court and any claim that any such proceeding brought in such a court has been brought in an inconvenient forum. SECTION 9.09. Counterparts; Integration. This Agreement may be signed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be an original, with the same effect as if the signatures thereto and hereto were upon the same instrument.

I, or persons acting under my supervision, have examined originals or copies, certified or otherwise identified to my satisfaction, of such documents, corporate records, certificates of public officials and other instruments and have conducted such other investigations of fact and law as I have deemed necessary or advisable for purposes of this opinion.

The execution, delivery and performance by the Borrower of the Credit Agreement and the Notes are within the Borrower's corporate powers, have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action, require no action by or in respect of, or filing with, any governmental body, agency or official and do not contravene, or constitute a default under, any provision of applicable law or regulation or of the certificate of incorporation or by-laws of the Borrower or of any agreement, judgment, injunction, order, decree or other instrument known by me to be binding upon the Borrower or any of its Significant Subsidiaries or result in the creation or imposition of any Lien on any asset of the Borrower or any of its Significant Subsidiaries. 3. The Credit Agreement constitutes a valid and binding agreement of the Borrower and each Note constitutes a valid and binding obligation of the Borrower, in each case enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as the same may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency or similar laws affecting creditors' rights generally and by general principles of equity. 4. There is no action, suit or proceeding pending against, or to the best of my knowledge threatened against or affecting, the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries before any court or arbitrator or any governmental body, agency or official, in which there is a reasonable possibility of an adverse decision which could materially adversely affect the business, consolidated financial position or consolidated results of operations of the Borrower and its Consolidated Subsidiaries, considered as a whole or which in any manner draws into question the validity of the Credit Agreement or the Notes. 5. Each of the Borrower's Significant Subsidiaries is a corporation validly existing and in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of incorporation, and has all corporate powers and all material governmental licenses, authorizations, consents and approvals required to carry on its business as now conducted.

                 DEFERRED COMPENSATION CONTRACT





   AGREEMENT entered into as of September 15, 1994, between THE

PERKIN-ELMER CORPORATION, a New York corporation having its

principal place of business at Norwalk, Connecticut (hereinafter

referred to as the "Company") and Dr. Michael W. Hunkapiller, of

1333 Pebble Drive, San Carlos, CA  94070 (hereinafter referred to

as the "Employee").

   WHEREAS, the Employee has rendered valuable service to the

Company, and it is regarded as essential by the Company that it

shall have the benefit of his services during future years, and

   WHEREAS, it is the desire of the Company to assist the

Employee in providing for the contingencies of death and old age

dependency, and

   WHEREAS, it appears desirable to provide for retirement at an

age prior to the current normal retirement age of 65 years in

appropriate cases so as to facilitate an orderly succession in

senior management positions of the Company.

NOW, THEREFORE, it is hereby mutually agreed as follows:

     (1)  Should the Employee still be in the employ of the

Company at age 65, the Company (beginning on a date to be

determined by the Company but within 6 months from the Employee's

retirement date) will pay him $25,000 each year for a continuous

period of 10 years.  Payment of this amount shall be made in

quarterly installments on the first day of the fiscal quarters of

the Company.

     Should the Employee be in the employ of the Company at age

65 and thereafter die before the entire said 10 annual payments

have been paid, the unpaid balance of the 10 annual payments will

continue to be paid by the Company to that person designated by

the Employee in a written notice of election as the Employee's

beneficiary hereunder (hereinafter referred to as the

"Beneficiary").  The Employee may change such designation at any

time by giving the Company written notice of such intent; and

                             -1-

such change shall become effective only upon being received and acknowledged by the Company. If the Beneficiary shall die after receiving benefits under this Agreement and further payments are payable, such further payments shall be paid to the estate of the Beneficiary. If the Employee shall survive the Beneficiary without designating another Beneficiary, any payments hereunder shall be paid to the estate of the Employee. The Employee may elect in writing at any time prior to his normal retirement date one of the following optional forms of payment in lieu of the normal form of payment set forth above, with the annual value of such optional form of payment being actuarially reduced from such normal form of payment; provided, however, that such optional forms of payment are not available to an Employee in the event he dies or terminates his employment and is covered by Paragraphs (2), (4), (5), or (6) of this Agreement: Option 1. Reduced annual payments payable during his life with the provision that if he shall not survive a period of ten years, such reduced annual payments shall continue to be paid after the death of the Employee and during the remainder of such ten-year period to the Beneficiary. Option 2. Reduced annual payments payable during his life, with the provision that after his death such reduced annual payments shall continue during the life of, and shall be paid to the Beneficiary (provided the Beneficiary survives the Employee). Option 3. Reduced annual payments payable during his life, with the provision that after his death annual payments equal to 50% of such reduced annual payments shall continue during the life of, and shall be paid to, the Beneficiary (provided the Beneficiary survives the Employee). Option 4. Reduced annual payments payable to the Employee during his life. Notwithstanding any contrary provisions herein, the Employee may not change his Beneficiary in Options 2 and 3, above, after the Employee has begun to receive payments hereunder. -2-

(2) Should the Employee die before age 65 while in the employ of the Company, the Company (beginning on a date to be determined by the Company but within 6 months from the date of death) will pay the Beneficiary $25,000 each year for a continuous period of 10 years. Payment of this amount shall be made in quarterly installments on the first day of the fiscal quarters of the Company. (3) If the Employee shall retire on or after age 60 and before age 65, with the written consent or at the request of the Company, payments will be made by the Company in the amount and in the manner provided in Paragraph (1) to commence within 6 months of the date of retirement. (4) Should the Employee's employment be terminated at any time after the date hereof and prior to his attaining age 60, with the written consent or by the act of the Company, the Company will make payments in the manner provided in Paragraph (1) to commence when the Employee attains age 60 or the date of his prior death in an amount determined by multiplying the benefit set forth in Paragraph (1) by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the number of whole months or major part thereof from the date hereof to the date of termination of employment, and the denominator of which shall be the number of whole months or major part thereof from the date hereof to the date he attains age 60. (5) Unless the Company shall consent in writing, the Employee, if his employment be terminated other than by death or disability or as provided in Paragraphs (3) or (4) prior to his attaining age 65, shall forfeit all right to benefits hereunder and the Company shall have no liability for any payment to the Employee or the Beneficiary. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if within three years of a Change in Control the employment of the Employee is terminated by the Employee for Good Reason or by the Company without Cause, then the Company will pay Employee the amount referred to in Paragraph (1) of this Agreement within 60 days of such termination of employment. For purposes hereof: (a) A "Change in Control" shall have occurred if (i) any "person" within the meaning of Section 14 (d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 becomes the "beneficial -3-

owner" as defined in Rule 13d-3 thereunder, directly or indirectly, of more than 25% of the Company's Common Stock, (ii) any "person" acquires by proxy or otherwise, other than pursuant to solicitations by the Incumbent Board (as hereinafter defined), the right to vote more than 35% of the Company's Common Stock for the election of directors, for any merger or consolidation of the Company or for any other matter or question, (iii) during any two-year period, individuals who constitute the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Incumbent Board") as of the beginning of the period cease for any reason to constitute at least a majority thereof, provided that any person becoming a director during such period whose election or nomination for election by the Company's stockholders was approved by a vote of at least three-quarters of the Incumbent Board (either by a specific vote or by approval of the proxy statement of the Company in which such person is named as a nominee for director without objection to such nomination) shall be, for purposes of this clause (iii), considered as though such person were a member of the Incumbent Board, or (iv) the Company's Stockholders approve the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company. (b) Termination by the Company of the employment of the Employee for "Cause" shall mean termination upon (i) the willful and continued failure by the Employee to perform substantially his duties with the Company, (other than any such failure resulting from the Employee's incapacity due to physical or mental illness) after a demand for substantial performance is delivered to the employee by the Chairman of the Board or President of the Company which specifically identifies the manner in which such executive believes that the Employee has not substantially performed his duties, or (ii) the willful engaging by the Employee in illegal conduct which is materially and demonstrably injurious to the Company. For purposes of this subparagraph (b), no act or failure to act on the part of the Employee shall be considered "willful" unless done, or omitted to be done, by the Employee in bad faith and without reasonable belief that the Employee's action or omission was in, or not opposed to, the best interests of the Company. Any act, or failure to act, based upon -4-

authority given pursuant to a resolution duly adopted by the Board or based upon the advice of counsel for the Company shall conclusively presumed to be done, or omitted to be done, by the Employee in good faith and in the best interests of the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Employee shall not be deemed to have been terminated for Cause unless and until there shall have been delivered to the Employee a copy of a resolution, duly adopted by the affirmative vote of not less than three-quarters of the entire membership of the Board at a meeting of the Board called and held for that purpose (after reasonable notice to the employee and an opportunity for him, together with his counsel, to be heard before the Board), finding that in the good faith opinion of the Board the Employee was guilty of the conduct set forth in sections (i) or (ii) of this subparagraph (b) and specifying the particulars thereof in detail. (c) Termination by the employee of employment for "Good Reason" shall mean termination based on: (i) an adverse change in the status of the Employee (other than any such change primary attributable to the fact that the Company may no longer be publicly owned) or the Employee's position(s) as an officer of the Company as in effect immediately prior to the Change in Control, or the assignment to the Employee of any duties or responsibilities which, in his reasonable judgement, are inconsistent with such status or position(s), or any removal of the Employee from, or any failure to reappoint or reelect him to, such position(s) (except in connection with the termination of the Employee's employment for Cause, total disability, or retirement on or after attaining age 65 or as a result of death or by the Employee other than for Good Reason); (ii) a reduction by the Company in the Employee's base salary as in effect immediately prior to the Change in Control; -5-

(iii) A material reduction in the Employee's total annual compensation; a reduction for any year of over 10% of total compensation measured by the preceding year without a substantially similar reduction to other executives shall be considered "material"; provided, however, the failure of the Company to adopt or renew a stock option plan or to grant stock options to the Employee shall not be considered a reduction; and (iv) the Company's requiring the employee to be more than fifty miles from Norwalk, Connecticut, except for required travel on the Company's business to an extent substantially consistent with the business travel obligations which he undertook on behalf of the Company prior to the Change in Control. (6) In the event the Employee shall become disabled so that he is unable to perform his duties as an employee and so that he is entitled to benefits under a long range disability insurance program made available by the Company, or so that he would have been eligible for such benefits had he elected to insure himself thereunder, the Company will make payments as provided in Paragraph (1) above to commence at age 65. In the event the Employee should die at any time after becoming disabled and before attaining age 65, payments as provided in this Paragraph (6) will be made to the Beneficiary commencing as of the date of the Employee's death. (7) The Company has or may procure a policy or policies of life insurance upon the life of the Employee to aid it in meeting its obligations under this Agreement. It is understood, however, that such policy or policies held by the Company and the proceeds therefrom shall be treated as the general assets of the Company; that they shall in no way represent any vested, secured, or preferred interest of the Employee or his beneficiaries under this Agreement; and that the Company shall be under no obligation either to procure or to continue life insurance in force upon the life of the Employee. The employee hereby agrees that he already has or will submit to a physical examination and answer truthfully and completely without mental reservation or concealment any question or request for information by any insurance company in connection with the issuance of any policy procured by the Company under -6-

this Paragraph. (7). In the event the Employee fails to do so or in the event the Employee dies by suicide, and the liability of the insurer under such policy is restricted as a result of such failure or suicide, then the Company shall thereby be released from all of its obligations under Paragraph (2) above. (8) If the Company shall procure any policy or policies of life insurance in accordance with Paragraph (7) above and shall have the option of including in any such policy an accidental death or so-called "double indemnity" provision, the Company will so advise the Employee and, if the Employee requests and agrees to pay any additional premium resulting therefrom, will include in the policy such accidental death or double indemnity provisions as may be available and will further provide or cause to be provided that any benefit payable under or by reason of such provisions shall be paid as a death benefit to the beneficiary designated by the Employee hereunder; provided that in the event the Employee shall cease to pay such additional premium the Company may cancel any accidental death or double indemnity provision; and further provided that the inclusion of such a provision shall in no way affect the Company's right to cancel or otherwise dispose of the policy, even though such action may have the effect of terminating such provision. (9) If during a period of 10 years from the termination of his employment with the Company the Employee shall: engage in a business competitive with any business activity engaged in by the Company at any time while he was employed; enter into the service of any organization so engaged in such business (or any subsidiary or affiliate of such an organization); or personally engage in or enter the service of any organization that is engaged in consulting work or research or development or engineering activities for any organization so engaged in such business (or any subsidiary or affiliate of such an organization), then any liability of the Company to make any further payments hereunder shall cease. The investment of funds by the Employee in securities of a corporation listed on a recognized stock exchange shall not be considered to be a breach of this Paragraph. -7-

(10) The Company may in its sole discretion grant the Employee a leave of absence for a period not to exceed one year during which time the Employee will be considered to be still in the employ of the Company for the purposes of this Agreement. (11) The Company in its sole discretion and without the consent of the Employee, his estate, his beneficiaries, or any other person claiming through or under him, may commute any payments which are due hereunder at the rate of 4% per annum to a lump sum and pay such lump sum to the Employee or to the beneficiary or beneficiaries entitled to receive payment at the date of commutation, and such payment shall be a full discharge of the Company's liabilities hereunder. The Company may also in its sole discretion and without the consent of any other person accelerate the payment of any of the sums payable hereunder. (12) The right to receive payments under this Agreement shall not be assignable or subject to anticipation, nor shall such right be subject to garnishment, attachment, or any other legal process of creditors of the Employee or of any person or persons designated as beneficiaries hereunder except to the extent that this provision may be contrary to law. (13) This Agreement creates no rights in the Employee to continue in the employ of the Company for any length of time nor does it create any rights in the Employee or obligations on the part of the Company other than those set forth herein. (14) If the Company, or any corporation surviving or resulting from any merger or consolidation to which the Company may be a party or to which substantially all the assets of the Company shall be sold or otherwise transferred, shall at any time be merged or consolidated with or into any other corporation or corporations or shall otherwise transfer substantially all its assets to another corporation, the terms and provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the corporation surviving or resulting from such merger or consolidation or to which such assets shall be so sold or otherwise transferred. Except as herein provided, this Agreement shall not be assignable by the Company or the Employee. This Agreement is solely between the Company and the Employee. The Employee and his beneficiaries shall have recourse only against the Company for enforcement, and the Agreement shall -8-

be binding upon the beneficiaries, heirs, executors, and administrators of the Employee and upon the successors and assigns of the Company. (15) This Agreement has been made, executed, and delivered in the State of Connecticut; and shall be governed in accordance with the laws thereof. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have set their hands and affixed the seal of the Corporation as of the date first written above. THE PERKIN-ELMER CORPORATION By: /s/ G. N. Kelley Gaynor N.

     AGREEMENT entered into as of February 18, 1993, between

THE PERKIN-ELMER CORPORATION, a New York corporation having

its principal place of business at Norwalk, Connecticut

(hereinafter referred to as the "Company") and Michael J.

McPartland, of 540 Warner Hill Road, Southport, CT 06940

(hereinafter referred to as the "Employee").

     WHEREAS, the Employee has rendered valuable service to

the Company, and it is regarded as essential by the Company

that it shall have the benefit of his services during future

years, and

     WHEREAS, it is the desire of the Company to assist the

Employee in providing for the contingencies of death and old

age dependency, and

     WHEREAS, it appears desirable to provide for retirement

at an age prior to the current normal retirement age of 65

years in appropriate cases so as to facilitate an orderly

succession in senior management positions of the Company.

     NOW, THEREFORE, it is hereby mutually agreed as

follows:

     (1) Should the Employee still be in the employ of the

Company at age 65, the Company (beginning on a date to be

determined by the Company but within 6 months from the

Employee's retirement date) will pay him $25,000 each year

for a continuous period of 10 years.  Payment of this amount

shall be made in quarterly installments on the first day of

the fiscal quarters of  the Company.


     Should the Employee be in the employ of the Company at

age 65 and thereafter die before the entire said 10 annual

payments have been paid, the unpaid balance of the 10 annual

payments will continue to be paid by the Company to that

person designated by the Employee in a written notice of


                             -1-

election as the Employee's beneficiary hereunder (hereinafter referred to as the "Beneficiary"). The Employee may change such designation at any time by giving the Company written notice of such intent; and such change shall become effective only upon being received and acknowledged by the Company. If the Beneficiary shall die after receiving benefits under this Agreement and further payments are payable, such further payments shall be paid to the estate of the Beneficiary. If the Employee shall survive the Beneficiary without designating another Beneficiary, any payments hereunder shall be paid to the estate of the Employee. The Employee may elect in writing at any time prior to his normal retirement date one of the following optional forms of payment in lieu of the normal form of payment set forth above, with the annual value of such optional form of payment being actuarially reduced from such normal form of payment; provided, however, that such optional forms of payment are not available to an Employee in the event he dies or terminates his employment and is covered by Paragraphs (2), (4), (5), or (6) of this Agreement: Option 1. Reduced annual payments payable during his life with the provision that if he shall not survive a period of ten years, such reduced annual payments shall continue to be paid after the death of the Employee and during the remainder of such ten-year period to the Beneficiary. Option 2. Reduced annual payments payable during his life, with the provision that after his death such reduced annual payments shall continue during the life of, and shall be paid to the Beneficiary (provided the Beneficiary survives the Employee). Option 3. Reduced annual payments payable during his life, with the provision that after his death annual payments equal to 50% of such reduced annual payments shall continue during the life of, and shall be paid to, the Beneficiary (provided the Beneficiary survives the Employee). Option 4. Reduced annual payments payable to the Employee during his life. -2-

Notwithstanding any contrary provisions herein, the Employee may not change his Beneficiary in Options 2 and 3, above, after the Employee has begun to receive payments hereunder. (2) Should the Employee die before age 65 while in the employ of the Company, the Company (beginning on a date to be determined by the Company but within 6 months from the date of death) will pay the Beneficiary $25,000 each year for a continuous period of 10 years. Payment of this amount shall be made in quarterly installments on the first day of the fiscal quarters of the Company. (3) If the Employee shall retire on or after age 60 and before age 65, with the written consent or at the request of the Company, payments will be made by the Company in the amount and in the manner provided in Paragraph (1) to commence within 6 months of the date of retirement. (4) Should the Employee's employment be terminated at any time after the date hereof and prior to his attaining age 60, with the written consent or by the act of the Company, the Company will make payments in the manner provided in Paragraph (1) to commence when the Employee attains age 60 or the date of his prior death in an amount determined by multiplying the benefit set forth in Paragraph (1) by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the number of whole months or major part thereof from the date hereof to the date of termination of employment, and the denominator of which shall be the number of whole months or major part thereof from the date hereof to the date he attains age 60. (5) Unless the Company shall consent in writing, the Employee, if his employment be terminated other than by death or disability or as provided in Paragraphs (3) or (4) prior to his attaining age 65, shall forfeit all right to benefits hereunder and the Company shall have no liability for any payment to the Employee or the Beneficiary. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if within three years of a Change in Control the employment of the Employee is terminated by the Employee for Good -3-

Reason or by the Company without Cause, then the Company will pay Employee the amount referred to in Paragraph (1) of this Agreement within 60 days of such termination of employment. For purposes hereof: (a) A "Change in Control" shall have occurred if (i) any "person" within the meaning of Section 14 (d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 becomes the "beneficial owner" as defined in Rule 13d-3 thereunder, directly or indirectly, of more than 25% of the Company's Common Stock, (ii) any "person" acquires by proxy or otherwise, other than pursuant to solicitations by the Incumbent Board (as hereinafter defined), the right to vote more than 35% of the Company's Common Stock for the election of directors, for any merger or consolidation of the Company or for any other matter or question, (iii) during any two-year period, individuals who constitute the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Incumbent Board") as of the beginning of the period cease for any reason to constitute at least a majority thereof, provided that any person becoming a director during such period whose election or nomination for election by the Company's stockholders was approved by a vote of at least three-quarters of the Incumbent Board (either by a specific vote or by approval of the proxy statement of the Company in which such person is named as a nominee for director without objection to such nomination) shall be, for purposes of this clause (iii), considered as though such person were a member of the Incumbent Board, or (iv) the Company's Stockholders approve the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company.

which is materially and demonstrably injurious to the Company.

Any act, or failure to act, based upon authority given pursuant to a resolution duly adopted by the Board or based upon the advice of counsel for the Company shall conclusively presumed to be done, or omitted to be done, by the Employee in good faith and in the best interests of the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Employee shall not be deemed to have been terminated for Cause unless and until there shall have been delivered to the Employee a copy of a resolution, duly adopted by the affirmative vote of not less than three- quarters of the entire membership of the Board at a meeting of the Board called and held for that purpose (after reasonable notice to the employee and an opportunity for him, together with his counsel, to be heard before the Board), finding that in the good faith opinion of the Board the Employee was guilty of the conduct set forth in sections (i) or (ii) of this subparagraph (b) and specifying the particulars thereof in detail. (c) Termination by the employee of employment for "Good Reason" shall mean termination based on: (i) an adverse change in the status of the Employee (other than any such change primary attributable to the fact that the Company may no longer be publicly owned) or the Employee's position(s) as an officer of the Company as in effect immediately prior to the Change in Control, or the assignment to the Employee of any duties or responsibilities which, in his reasonable judgement, are inconsistent with such status or position(s), or any removal of the Employee from, or any failure to reappoint or reelect him to, such position(s) (except in connection with the termination of the Employee's employment for Cause, total disability, or retirement on or after attaining age 65 or as a result of death or by the Employee other than for Good Reason); -5-

(ii) a reduction by the Company in the Employee's base salary as in effect immediately prior to the Change in Control; (iii) A material reduction in the Employee's total annual compensation; a reduction for any year of over 10% of total compensation measured by the preceding year without a substantially similar reduction to other executives shall be considered "material"; provided, however, the failure of the Company to adopt or renew a stock option plan or to grant stock options to the Employee shall not be considered a reduction; and (iv) the Company's requiring the employee to be more than fifty miles from Norwalk, Connecticut, except for required travel on the Company's business to an extent substantially consistent with the business travel obligations which he undertook on behalf of the Company prior to the Change in Control. (6) In the event the Employee shall become disabled so that he is unable to perform his duties as an employee and so that he is entitled to benefits under a long range disability insurance program made available by the Company, or so that he would have been eligible for such benefits had he elected to insure himself thereunder, the Company will make payments as provided in Paragraph (1) above to commence at age 65. In the event the Employee should die at any time after becoming disabled and before attaining age 65, payments as provided in this Paragraph (6) will be made to the Beneficiary commencing as of the date of the Employee's death. (7) The Company has or may procure a policy or policies of life insurance upon the life of the Employee to aid it in meeting its obligations under this Agreement. It is understood, however, that such policy or policies held by the Company and the proceeds therefrom shall be treated as the general assets of the Company; that they shall in no way represent any vested, secured, or preferred interest of the Employee or his beneficiaries under this Agreement; and that the Company shall be under no obligation either to procure or to continue life insurance in force upon the life of the Employee. -6-

The employee hereby agrees that he already has or will submit to a physical examination and answer truthfully and completely without mental reservation or concealment any question or request for information by any insurance company in connection with the issuance of any policy procured by the Company under this Paragraph (7). In the event the Employee fails to do so or in the event the Employee dies by suicide, and the liability of the insurer under such policy is restricted as a result of such failure or suicide, then the Company shall thereby be released from all of its obligations under Paragraph (2) above. (8) If the Company shall procure any policy or policies of life insurance in accordance with Paragraph (7) above and shall have the option of including in any such policy an accidental death or so-called "double indemnity" provision, the Company will so advise the Employee and, if the Employee requests and agrees to pay any additional premium resulting therefrom, will include in the policy such accidental death or double indemnity provisions as may be available and will further provide or cause to be provided that any benefit payable under or by reason of such provisions shall be paid as a death benefit to the beneficiary designated by the Employee hereunder; provided that in the event the Employee shall cease to pay such additional premium the Company may cancel any accidental death or double indemnity provision; and further provided that the inclusion of such a provision shall in no way affect the Company's right to cancel or otherwise dispose of the policy, even though such action may have the effect of terminating such provision. (9) If during a period of 10 years from the termination of his employment with the Company the Employee shall: engage in a business competitive with any business activity engaged in by the Company at any time while he was employed; enter into the service of any organization so engaged in such business (or any subsidiary or affiliate of such an organization); or personally engage in or enter the service of any organization that is engaged in consulting work or research or development or engineering activities -7-

for any organization so engaged in such business (or any subsidiary or affiliate of such an organization), then any liability of the Company to make any further payments hereunder shall cease. The investment of funds by the Employee in securities of a corporation listed on a recognized stock exchange shall not be considered to be a breach of this Paragraph. (10) The Company may in its sole discretion grant the Employee a leave of absence for a period not to exceed one year during which time the Employee will be considered to be still in the employ of the Company for the purposes of this Agreement. (11) The Company in its sole discretion and without the consent of the Employee, his estate, his beneficiaries, or any other person claiming through or under him, may commute any payments which are due hereunder at the rate of 4% per annum to a lump sum and pay such lump sum to the Employee or to the beneficiary or beneficiaries entitled to receive payment at the date of commutation, and such payment shall be a full discharge of the Company's liabilities hereunder.

(b) Termination by the Company of the employment of the Employee for "Cause" shall mean termination upon (i) the willful and continued failure by the Employee to perform substantially his duties with the Company, (other than any such failure resulting from the Employee's incapacity due to physical or mental illness) after a demand for substantial performance is delivered to the employee by the Chairman of the Board or President of the Company which specifically identifies the manner in which such executive believes that the Employee has not substantially performed his duties, or (ii) the willful engaging by the Employee in illegal conduct which is materially and demonstrably injurious to the Company. For purposes of this subparagraph (b), no act or failure to act on the part of the Employee shall be considered "willful" unless done, or omitted to be done, by the Employee in bad faith and without reasonable belief that the Employee's action or omission was in, or not opposed to, the best interests of the Company. Any act, or failure to act, based upon authority given pursuant to a resolution duly adopted by the Board or based upon the advice of counsel for the Company shall conclusively presumed to be done, or omitted -4-

to be done, by the Employee in good faith and in the best interests of the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Employee shall not be deemed to have been terminated for Cause unless and until there shall have been delivered to the Employee a copy of a resolution, duly adopted by the affirmative vote of not less than three-quarters of the entire membership of the Board at a meeting of the Board called and held for that purpose (after reasonable notice to the employee and an opportunity for him, together with his counsel, to be heard before the Board), finding that in the good faith opinion of the Board the Employee was guilty of the conduct set forth in sections (i) or (ii) of this subparagraph (b) and specifying the particulars thereof in detail. (c) Termination by the employee of employment for "Good Reason" shall mean termination based on: (i) an adverse change in the status of the Employee (other than any such change primary attributable to the fact that the Company may no longer be publicly owned) or the Employee's position(s) as an officer of the Company as in effect immediately prior to the Change in Control, or the assignment to the Employee of any duties or responsibilities which, in his reasonable judgement, are inconsistent with such status or position(s), or any removal of the Employee from, or any failure to reappoint or reelect him to, such position(s) (except in connection with the termination of the Employee's employment for Cause, total disability, or retirement on or after attaining age 65 or as a result of death or by the Employee other than for Good Reason); (ii) a reduction by the Company in the Employee's base salary as in effect immediately prior to the Change in Control; (iii) A material reduction in the Employee's total annual compensation; a reduction for any year of over 10% of total compensation measured by the preceding year without a substantially similar reduction to other executives shall be considered "material"; provided, -5-

however, the failure of the Company to adopt or renew a stock option plan or to grant stock options to the Employee shall not be considered a reduction; and (iv) the Company's requiring the employee to be more than fifty miles from Norwalk, Connecticut, except for required travel on the Company's business to an extent substantially consistent with the business travel obligations which he undertook on behalf of the Company prior to the Change in Control. (6) In the event the Employee shall become disabled so that he is unable to perform his duties as an employee and so that he is entitled to benefits under a long range disability insurance program made available by the Company, or so that he would have been eligible for such benefits had he elected to insure himself thereunder, the Company will make payments as provided in Paragraph (1) above to commence at age 65. In the event the Employee should die at any time after becoming disabled and before attaining age 65, payments as provided in this Paragraph (6) will be made to the Beneficiary commencing as of the date of the Employee's death. (7) The Company has or may procure a policy or policies of life insurance upon the life of the Employee to aid it in meeting its obligations under this Agreement. It is understood, however, that such policy or policies held by the Company and the proceeds therefrom shall be treated as the general assets of the Company; that they shall in no way represent any vested, secured, or preferred interest of the Employee or his beneficiaries under this Agreement; and that the Company shall be under no obligation either to procure or to continue life insurance in force upon the life of the Employee. The employee hereby agrees that he already has or will submit to a physical examination and answer truthfully and completely without mental reservation or concealment any question or request for information by any insurance company in connection with the issuance of any policy procured by the Company under this Paragraph. (7). In the event the Employee fails to do so or in the event the Employee dies by suicide, and the liability of the insurer under such policy is restricted as a result of such -6-

failure or suicide, then the Company shall thereby be released from all of its obligations under Paragraph (2) above. (8) If the Company shall procure any policy or policies of life insurance in accordance with Paragraph (7) above and shall have the option of including in any such policy an accidental death or so-called "double indemnity" provision, the Company will so advise the Employee and, if the Employee requests and agrees to pay any additional premium resulting therefrom, will include in the policy such accidental death or double indemnity provisions as may be available and will further provide or cause to be provided that any benefit payable under or by reason of such provisions shall be paid as a death benefit to the beneficiary designated by the Employee hereunder; provided that in the event the Employee shall cease to pay such additional premium the Company may cancel any accidental death or double indemnity provision; and further provided that the inclusion of such a provision shall in no way affect the Company's right to cancel or otherwise dispose of the policy, even though such action may have the effect of terminating such provision. (9) If during a period of 10 years from the termination of his employment with the Company the Employee shall: engage in a business competitive with any business activity engaged in by the Company at any time while he was employed; enter into the service of any organization so engaged in such business (or any subsidiary or affiliate of such an organization); or personally engage in or enter the service of any organization that is engaged in consulting work or research or development or engineering activities for any organization so engaged in such business (or any subsidiary or affiliate of such an organization), then any liability of the Company to make any further payments hereunder shall cease. The investment of funds by the Employee in securities of a corporation listed on a recognized stock exchange shall not be considered to be a breach of this Paragraph. (10) The Company may in its sole discretion grant the Employee a leave of absence for a period not to exceed one year during which time the Employee will be considered to be still in the employ of the Company for the purposes of this Agreement. -7-

(11) The Company in its sole discretion and without the consent of the Employee, his estate, his beneficiaries, or any other person claiming through or under him, may commute any payments which are due hereunder at the rate of 4% per annum to a lump sum and pay such lump sum to the Employee or to the beneficiary or beneficiaries entitled to receive payment at the date of commutation, and such payment shall be a full discharge of the Company's liabilities hereunder. The Company may also in its sole discretion and without the consent of any other person accelerate the payment of any of the sums payable hereunder. (12) The right to receive payments under this Agreement shall not be assignable or subject to anticipation, nor shall such right be subject to garnishment, attachment, or any other legal process of creditors of the Employee or of any person or persons designated as beneficiaries hereunder except to the extent that this provision may be contrary to law. (13) This Agreement creates no rights in the Employee to continue in the employ of the Company for any length of time nor does it create any rights in the Employee or obligations on the part of the Company other than those set forth herein. (14) If the Company, or any corporation surviving or resulting from any merger or consolidation to which the Company may be a party or to which substantially all the assets of the Company shall be sold or otherwise transferred, shall at any time be merged or consolidated with or into any other corporation or corporations or shall otherwise transfer substantially all its assets to another corporation, the terms and provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the corporation surviving or resulting from such merger or consolidation or to which such assets shall be so sold or otherwise transferred. Except as herein provided, this Agreement shall not be assignable by the Company or the Employee. This Agreement is solely between the Company and the Employee. The Employee and his beneficiaries shall have recourse only against the Company for enforcement, and the Agreement shall be binding upon the beneficiaries, heirs, executors, and administrators of the Employee and upon the successors and assigns of the Company. -8-

(15) This Agreement has been made, executed, and delivered in the State of Connecticut; and shall be governed in accordance with the laws thereof. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have set their hands and affixed the seal of the Corporation as of the date first written above. THE PERKIN-ELMER CORPORATION By: /s/ G. N. Kelley Gaynor N.

Termination of Employment. (a) Termination by the Company for Cause or Termination by the Employee Other Than for Good Reason. If the Company terminates the employment of the Employee for Cause (as defined in Section 5 hereof), or if the Employee terminates his employment other than for Good Reason (as defined in paragraph (c) of this Section) the Company will pay the Employee (i) his Base Annual Salary, as provided in paragraph (a) of Section 7 hereof, through the end of the month in which the Termination Date occurs, (ii) any Incentive Compensation payable to him -5-

The Period of Employment shall be extended automatically by one week for each week in which the Employee's employment continues after the date of a Change in Control, subject to the provisions of paragraph (b) hereof. (b) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (a) hereof, the Period of Employment shall terminate upon the occurrence of the earlier of (i) the Employee's attainment of age 65, or the election by the Employee to retire early from the Company under any of its retirement plans, (ii) the death of the Employee, (iii) the Disability of the Employee (as defined in Section 3 hereof), (iv) any termination of Employee's employment with the Company for Cause or without Good Reason or (v) the sixth anniversary of the commencement of the Period of Employment. (c) In the case of termination of the Period of Employment pursuant to Section 2(b)(iv), "Termination Date" means the date -2-

of receipt by the Employee or the Company of notice of termination given by the other party, or such later date (but not more than 30 days thereafter) as may be specified in such notice. 3. Definitions. For purposes of this Agreement, the following terms shall have the meanings set forth in this Section 3. (a) Cause. "Cause" means termination upon (i) the willful and continued failure by the Employee to perform substantially his duties with the Company (other than any such failure resulting from the Employee's incapacity due to physical or mental illness) after a demand for a substantial performance is delivered to the Employee by the Board which specifically identifies the manner in which the Board believes that the Employee has not substantially performed his duties, or (ii) the willful engaging by the Employee in illegal conduct which is materially and demonstrably injurious to the Company. For purposes of this Section 3(a), no act, or failure to act, on the part of the Employee shall be considered "willful" unless done, or omitted to be done, by the Employee in bad faith and without reasonable belief that the Employee's action or omission was in, or not opposed to, the best interests of the Company. Any act, or failure to act, based upon authority given pursuant to a resolution duly adopted by the Board or based upon the advice of counsel for the Company shall be conclusively presumed to be done, or omitted to be done, by the Employee in good faith and in the best interests of the -3-

Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Employee shall not be deemed to have been terminated for Cause unless and until there shall have been delivered to the Employee a copy of a resolution duly adopted by the affirmative vote of not less than three quarters of the entire membership of the Board at a meeting of the Board called and held for the purpose (after reasonable notice to the Employee and an opportunity for him, together with his counsel, to be heard before the Board), finding that in the good faith opinion of the Board the Employee was guilty of the conduct set forth above in (i) or (ii) of this Section 3(a) and specifying the particulars thereof in detail. (b) Cash Compensation. "Cash Compensation" shall mean the sum of (i) Employee's Base Salary (determined in accordance with the provisions of Section 5(a) hereof) and (ii) the average Incentive Compensation (provided for under Section 5(b) hereof) which shall be an amount equal to the greater of (x) the average of the amount of Employee's Incentive Compensation for the last three completed fiscal years immediately prior to the Employee's termination of employment or (y) the target amount of such Employee's Incentive Compensation for the fiscal year in which his termination of employment occurs; provided, however, that if the Employee was not employed by the Company for the entirety of the three completed fiscal years immediately prior to the Employee's termination of employment, the Employee's average -4-

Incentive Compensation shall be deemed to be the target amount of such Employee's Incentive Compensation for the fiscal year in which his termination of employment occurs. (c) Change in Control. "Change in Control" means the occurrence of any of the following: an event that would be required to be reported (assuming such event has not been "previously reported") in response to Item 1(a) of the Current Report on Form 8-K, as in effect on the date hereof, pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934; provided that, without limitation, such a Change in Control shall be deemed to have occurred at such time as (i) any "person" within the meaning of Section 14(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 becomes the "beneficial owner" as defined in Rule 13d-3 thereunder, directly or indirectly, of more than 25% of the Company's Common Stock, (ii) during any two-year period, individuals who constitute the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Incumbent Board") as of the beginning of the period cease for any reason to constitute at least a majority thereof, provided that any person becoming a director during such period whose election or nomination for election by the Company's stockholders was approved by a vote of at least three quarters of the Incumbent Board (either by a specific vote or by approval of the proxy statement of the Company in which such person is named as a nominee for director without objection to such nomination) shall be, for purposes of this clause (ii), considered as though -5-

such person were a member of the Incumbent Board or (iii) the approval by the Company's stockholders of the sale of all or substantially all of the stock or assets of the Company. (d) Disability. "Disability" means the absence of the Employee from his duties with the Company on a full-time basis for one hundred eighty (180) consecutive days as a result of incapacity due to physical or mental illness. (e) Good Reason. "Good Reason" means: (i) an adverse change in the status of the Employee (other than any such change primarily attributable to the fact that the Company may no longer be publicly owned) or position(s) as an officer of the Company as in effect immediately prior to the commencement of the Period of Employment or the assignment to the Employee of any duties or responsibilities which, in his reasonable judgment, are inconsistent with such status or position(s), or any removal of the Employee from or any failure to reappoint or reelect him to such position(s) (except in connection with the termination of the Employee's employment for Cause, Disability or upon attaining age 65 or upon taking early retirement under any of the Company's retirement plans, or as a result of death or by the Employee other than for Good Reason); (ii) a reduction by the Company in the Employee's Base Salary; (iii) a material reduction in the Employee's total annual compensation, a reduction for any year of over 10% of total -6-

compensation measured by the preceding year without a substantially similar reduction to all other executives participating in incentive compensation plans shall be considered "material." The failure of the Company to adopt or renew a stock option plan or to grant amounts of restricted stock or stock options, which are consistent with the Company's prior practices, to the Employee shall be considered a reduction, unless the Employee participates in substitute programs that provide substantially equivalent economic value to the Employee; (iv) the failure by the Company to continue in effect any Benefit Plan in which Employee was participating at the time of the Change in Control (or Benefit Plans providing Employee with at least substantially similar benefits) other than as a result of the normal expiration of any such Benefit Plan in accordance with its terms as in effect at the time of the Change in Control, or the taking of any action, or the failure to act, by the Company which would adversely affect Employee's continued participation in any such Benefit Plans on at least as favorable a basis to Employee as is the case immediately prior to the Change in Control or which would materially reduce Employee's benefits in the future under any of such Benefit Plans or deprive Employee of any material benefit enjoyed by Employee immediately prior to the Change in Control; (v) the failure by the Company to provide and credit Employee with the number of paid vacation days to which Employee was then -7-

entitled in accordance with the Company's normal vacation policy as in effect immediately prior to the Change in Control; and (vi) the Company's requiring the Employee to be based more than fifty miles from Norwalk, Connecticut except for required travel on the Company's business to an extent substantially consistent with the business travel obligations which he undertook on behalf of the Company prior to the commencement of the Period of Employment. 4. Duties During the Period of Employment. The Employee shall devote his full business time, attention and best efforts to the affairs of the Company and its subsidiaries during the Period of Employment; provided, however, that the Employee may engage in other activities, such as activities involving charitable, educational, religious and similar types of organizations, speaking engagements, membership on the boards of directors of other organizations, and similar type activities to the extent that such other activities do not prohibit the performance of his duties under this Agreement, or inhibit or conflict in any material way with the business of the Company and its subsidiaries. 5. Current Cash Compensation. (a) Base Salary. The Company will pay to the Employee while employed by the Company an annual base salary ("Base Salary") in an amount determined by the Board or its Compensation Committee -8-

which shall in no event be less than the higher of (i) his Base Salary immediately prior to the commencement of the Period of Employment or (ii) his Base Salary during the last completed fiscal year of the Company ("Fiscal Year") preceding the Period of Employment; provided, however, that for purposes of this Section 5(a), the Employee's Base Salary under clauses (i) and (ii) of this Section 5(a) shall be deemed to include an amount which is equal to the greater of (x) the fair market value of 12,000 shares of Company common stock immediately prior to a Change in Control or (y) $400,000; provided, further, that it is agreed between the parties that the Company shall review annually, and in light of such review may, in the discretion of the Board or its Compensation Committee, increase such Base Salary taking into account the Employee's responsibilities, inflation in the cost of living, compensation of other executives of the Company and its subsidiaries, increase in salaries of executives of other corporations, performance by the Employee, and other pertinent factors. The Base Salary shall be paid in substantially equal biweekly installments while employed hereunder. (b) Incentive Compensation. While employed hereunder, the Employee shall continue to participate in such of the Company's incentive compensation programs for executives as he participated in prior to the commencement of the Period of Employment. Any amount awarded to the Employee under such programs shall be paid -9-

to Employee in accordance with the terms thereof. 6. Employee Benefits. (a) Vacation and Sick Leave. The Employee shall be entitled to a paid annual vacation of not less than twenty (20) business days during each calendar year while employed hereunder and to reasonable sick leave. (b) Regular Reimbursed Business Expenses. The Company shall reimburse the Employee for all expenses and disbursements reasonably incurred by the Employee in the performance of his duties while employed hereunder. (c) Employee Benefit Plans, Programs or Arrangements. While employed hereunder, Employee shall be entitled to participate in all employee benefit plans, programs or arrangements ("Benefit Plans") of the Company, in accordance with the terms thereof, as presently in effect or as they may be modified by the Company from time to time, which the Company makes available to senior executives of the Company. For purposes of this Agreement, Benefit Plans shall include, without limitation, any compensation plan such as an incentive, deferred, stock option or restricted stock plan or any employee benefit plan such as a thrift, pension, profit sharing, medical, dental, disability, salary continuation, accident, life insurance plan or a relocation plan or policy or any other plan, program or policy of the Company intended to benefit employees. -10-

(d) Auto Allowance and Other Perquisites. While employed hereunder, Employee shall receive an automobile allowance of $20,000 per year, and the Company shall also reimburse Employee for the reasonable costs of financial planning and tax preparation in accordance with Company policy as in effect from time to time.

(e) Supplemental Pension Benefit. It is understood that Employee has been employed by his prior employer for a period of twenty-five years ("Prior Service Period"). In addition to receiving credit under the Company's qualified defined benefit plan ("Pension Plan") and the Company's non-qualified Supplemental Retirement Plan and Contingent Compensation Plan for Key Executives (collectively, "Non-Qualified Plans") for Employee's service with the Company under the terms of this Agreement, the Company shall pay Employee a special supplemental pension benefit equal to the amount which he would receive under the Pension Plan and the Non-Qualified Plans if Employee were credited with his Prior Service Period under the Pension Plan and the Non-Qualified Plans; provided, however, that Employee shall vest in 50 percent of his benefits hereunder at the commencement -11-

of the Employee's employment and in the remaining benefits hereunder at the rate of 10 percent per year commencing on the first anniversary of the date the Employee's employment commenced. Employee's benefit hereunder shall be calculated in the manner set forth in Exhibit A hereto. Any benefits payable to Employee hereunder shall be reduced by $111,528 per year, and shall also be reduced by any amounts paid to Employee under the Pension Plan or the Non-Qualified Plans. 7. Termination of Employment. (a) Termination by the Company for Cause or Termination by the Employee Other Than for Good Reason. If the Company terminates the employment of the Employee for Cause or if the Employee terminates his employment other than for Good Reason the Company shall pay the Employee (i) his Base Annual Salary, as provided in paragraph (a) of Section 5 hereof, through the end of the month in which the date of termination occurs, (ii) any Incentive Compensation payable to him pursuant to paragraph (b) of Section 5 hereof, including a pro rata share for any partial year, (iii) any accrued vacation pay, and (iv) benefits payable to him pursuant to the Company's Benefit Plans through the end of the month in which the termination of employment occurs. The amounts and benefits set forth in clauses (i), (ii), (iii), and (iv) of the preceding sentence shall hereinafter be referred to as "Accrued Benefits." -12-

(b) Termination by the Company Without Cause or by the Employee for Good Reason.

Termination Date. If such continued participation is not possible, the Company shall provide, at its sole cost and expense, identical benefits to the Employee plus pay an additional amount to the Employee equal to the Employee's liability for federal, state and local income taxes on such amounts; (iii) three years of additional vesting credit for purposes of Section 6(e) hereof and three additional years of service credit under the Company's Non-Qualified Plans and, for purposes of such plans, Employee's final average pay shall be deemed to be the sum of his then current Base Salary and his Target Bonus for the year in which the Termination Date occurs; (iv) the Company shall take all reasonable actions to cause any Restricted Stock granted to Employee to become fully vested and any Options granted to Employee to become fully exercisable and in the event the Company cannot effect such vesting or acceleration, the Company shall pay to Employee (i) with respect to each Option, an amount equal to the product of (x) the number -14-

of unvested shares subject to such Option, multiplied by (y) the excess of the fair market value of a share of Company common stock on the date of Employee's termination of employment, over the per share exercise price of such Option and (ii) with respect to each unvested share of Restricted Stock an amount equal to the fair market value of a share of Company common stock on the date of Employee's termination of employment. The amounts payable to the Employee under this paragraph (b) shall be absolutely owing and shall not be subject to reduction or mitigation as a result of employment of the Employee elsewhere after the Termination Date. 8. Gross-Up. In the event any amounts due to the Employee under this Agreement, under the terms of any Benefit Plan or otherwise payable by the Company or an affiliate of the Company are subject to excise taxes under Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended ("Excise Taxes"), the Company shall pay to the Employee, in addition to any other payments due under other provisions of this Agreement, an amount equal to the amount of such Excise Taxes plus the amount of any federal, state and local income or other taxes and Excise Taxes attributable to all amounts, including income taxes, payable under this Section 8. -15-

9. Governing Law. This Agreement is governed by, and is to be construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Connecticut. If under such law any portion of this Agreement is at any time deemed to be in conflict with any applicable statute, rule, regulation or ordinance, such portion shall be deemed to be modified or altered to conform thereto or, if that is not possible, to be omitted from this Agreement; and the invalidity of any such portion shall not affect the force, effect and validity of the remaining portion hereof. 10. Notices. All notices under this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be deemed effective when delivered in person (in the Company's case, to its Secretary) or seventy-two (72) hours after deposit thereof, in the U.S. mail, postage prepaid, for delivery as registered or certified mail --addressed, in the case of the Employee, to him at his residential address, and in the case of the Company, to its corporate headquarters, attention of the Secretary, or to such other address as the Employee or the Company may designate in writing at any time or from time to time to the other party. In lieu of personal notice or notice by deposit in the U.S. mail, a party may give notice by telegram, fax or telex. 11. Miscellaneous.

and understandings with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement. This Agreement may be amended only by a subsequent written agreement of the Employee and the Company. This Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the Employee, his heirs, executors, administrators, beneficiaries and assigns and to the benefit of the Company and its successors. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, this Agreement shall terminate if Employee or the Company terminate Employee's employment prior to a Change in Control of the Company. 12.

                          AGREEMENT


     This Agreement is entered as of May 5, 1995, between The

Perkin-Elmer Corporation (herein referred to as the "Company")

and Riccardo Pigliucci (herein referred to as "Employee").

     WHEREAS, Employee has rendered valuable services to the

Company during the past 29 years, and during that time has

been uniquely disadvantaged due to his work location being in

various countries where his pension benefits have not

consistently accrued as they otherwise would have; and

     WHEREAS, the Board of Directors of the Company regards

the services of Employee, who currently holds the position of

President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company, as

having been uniquely important to the Company's operations;

and

     WHEREAS, the Board of Directors of the Company and

Employee wish to terminate the Employee's employment with the

Company on the terms hereinafter set forth;

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of Employee's past

service to the Company and the other mutual covenants

contained herein, the parties agree as follows:

     1. The Company shall obtain, within ten days following

execution of this Agreement, an irrevocable annuity payable to

the Employee consistent with the terms set forth in Exhibit A

to this Agreement.

     2.  A.    Immediately upon execution of this Agreement by

both the Company and Employee, Employee shall tender to the

Board of Directors of the Company his resignation as an

employee, officer, and director of the Company and its

subsidiaries, such resignation to be in the form attached

hereto as Exhibit B.  Such resignation, when effective, is

hereinafter referred to as the "Termination."  Employee also

agrees to cooperate with the Company's reasonable requests in

                             -1-

connection with effectuating such resignation, such as, for example, executing resignation letters for subsidiaries of the Company. B. Commencing with the Termination, the Company agrees to: i) Pay to Employee seventy-eight (78) equal biweekly installments of $17,308 each, commencing with the payroll period immediately following the Termination and ending at a date three years thereafter. Employee understands that the Company will deduct from these payments withholding taxes and other deductions in accordance with normal Company practices. ii)Consider Employee on a personal leave of absence from the Company for a period of 24 months following the Termination solely in order to be eligible for the following benefits and any other similar benefits in effect at the time of Termination: a) Coverage under the applicable provisions of the Company's CHOICE Program for medical, dental, and basic life insurance; and b) Participation in the Retirement Plan, Supplemental Retirement Plan, and Profit Sharing and Savings Plan. iii) Provide medical insurance benefits to Employee and Employee's eligible family comparable to (including cost sharing) those provided under the Company's CHOICE Program, during the period of time between the end of the leave of absence period referenced in Section 2.B(ii) and Employee's sixty- fifth birthday and following Employee's sixty-fifth birthday provide medical insurance benefits to Employee and Employee's eligible family comparable to (including cost sharing) those provided under the Company's medical insurance plans (including any -2-

plans supplemental to Medicare or any program that is a successor to Medicare) to the Company's retirees as if Employee had continued in employment with the Company until his sixty-fifth birthday and retired on that date. Medical insurance benefits prior to age 65 shall terminate if and when Employee commences work for another employer with similar coverage, and the obligation to provide medical insurance benefits subsequent to age 65 will terminate when Employee commences work for another employer that provides any post-65 retiree medical benefits for which Employee is eligible. iv)All benefits under Sections 2.B(ii) and (iii) will be provided in accordance with the benefit plan provisions in effect at the time such benefits are provided to Employee and/or Employee's eligible family. Employee acknowledges that the Company has reserved the right to alter, amend or terminate such plans, but for purposes of any such alteration, amendment or termination, Employee should be treated comparably to other senior officers of the Company and as if he had continued in employment with the Company until his 65th birthday and retired on that date. C. Immediately following the Termination, the stock options previously granted to Employee pursuant to the Company's stock option plans shall become fully vested. The last day of the above-described leave of absence (the "Leave Termination Date") will be treated as Employee's termination date for purposes of rights associated with any options held by the Employee under the Company's Stock Option Plans and Stock Purchase Plan. D. Employee's Deferred Compensation Contract with the Company shall be fully vested and non-forfeitable upon Employee's attainment of age sixty (or upon his earlier death) -3-

and shall be paid over a period of ten years commencing on Employee's sixtieth birthday (or on the date of his earlier death). E. For a period of 36 months following the Termination, the Company shall provide Employee with use of a company car and reimbursement of operating expenses as provided under current Company policy and consistent with Employee's prior position as President and Chief Operating Officer. During the 37th month following the Termination, the Company shall permit Employee to purchase said car at its then market value, such value to be determined in good faith by the Company. In the event Employee commences work for another Employer which provides Employee with use of a comparable car, the above stated 36 month period will be deemed to have elapsed. F. Immediately following Termination, the Company shall make available to Employee the services of an outplacement consultant in accordance with the Company's standard arrangements with Drake Beam Morin Inc. or with whatever substantially similar firm with whom the Company is doing business at the time of Termination and will provide financial planning and tax preparation services consistent with the Company's practice for senior management personnel for a period of 36 months following the Termination. -4-

G. The Company shall pay to Employee a share of the Contingent Compensation award for fiscal year 1995 that would otherwise be made to Employee on a prorata basis for that portion of the fiscal year prior to Employee's Termination. Such payment shall be made on or about the time Contingent Compensation awards for that fiscal year are made to other eligible employees. Employee shall not be eligible for any Contingent Compensation award associated with fiscal years following the Termination. 3. Employee acknowledges and agrees that the benefits provided under Section 2 are in lieu of and in excess of the Company's standard severance benefits. Employee understands and agrees that, except for pension or other retirement benefits to which the Employee may be entitled under the Company's standard retirement programs, Employee shall receive no further wage, vacation, severance or other benefits from the Company beyond those described in Section 2. Furthermore, upon Employee's commencing receipt of benefits pursuant to Section 2, Employee's Employment Agreement dated November 21, 1991 with the Company shall immediately terminate. 4. A. Employee agrees not to: i) for a period of 36 months following the Termination, solicit for employment, either directly or through any corporation or other business entity of which Employee may become an officer, director, employee, or agent, any then current employee(s) of the Company, who were employed by the Company prior to the Termination, for any business activities, whether competitive or not; ii) make any derogatory statement, public or otherwise, concerning the Company, its officers, or its directors; iii) criticize, denigrate, or disparage the Company, its officers, or its directors; iv) assist or participate in any activities that would trigger a "Change in Control" as such term is defined in Employee's former Employment Agreement dated November 21, 1991 with the Company; v) initiate, participate, or assist in any activity specifically directed toward, and not solicited by, the Company, its officers, or its directors other than good faith, commercially acceptable activities between business competitors; and -5-

vi) engage in any other activities, directly or indirectly, which may be deemed contrary to the best interests of the Company, its officers, or its directors. Notwithstanding Section 4.A(vi) but subject to the other restrictions in this Section 4, the parties acknowledge and agree that Employee shall not be prevented from entering into employment with, and carrying out his legitimate obligations to, business associations which may be competitive with the Company's businesses. B. The Company, its officers, and its directors agree not to make any derogatory statement, public or otherwise, concerning Employee. The Company and Employee also agree to the Company making a press release in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C. The Company shall not make any other press releases regarding the Employee without Employee's prior consent, such consent not to be withheld unreasonably. C. Employee is reminded of the terms of Employee's confidentiality agreement with the Company, which, among other things, prohibits Employee from using, or disclosing to others, any confidential business or technical information belonging to the Company, and Employee expressly acknowledges his understanding and agreement that such confidentiality agreement remains in full force and effect. Employee also acknowledges that, in his capacity as an officer of the Company, he has regularly been privy to confidential or proprietary information that he will not disclose or misuse following the Termination. Employee also agrees to return promptly to the Company all files, documents, records, credit cards, keys, and any other Company property in his possession, custody or control. This paragraph shall be deemed a material term of this Agreement. D. In consideration of the benefits under this Agreement, Employee releases, waives, and forever discharges the Company, any related companies, any Company insurer or benefit plan, -6-

and the past or present employees, officers, representatives, agents and directors of any of them from all claims, demands, actions, suits, covenants, contracts, agreements, promises and liabilities of any kind whatsoever, known or unknown which Employee, Employee's heirs, executors or assigns may have had, now have or could in the future have including, without limitation, those based on Employee's employment with the Company, or the termination of that employment. This includes, for example, but is not limited to a release of any rights or claims Employee may have under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, which prohibits age discrimination in employment; Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination in employment based on race, color, national origin, religion or sex, the Equal Pay Act, which prohibits paying men and women unequal pay for equal work, or any other federal, state or local laws or regulations prohibiting employment discrimination. This also includes, but is not limited to, a release by Employee of any tort or contract claims, and any claims for wrongful discharge. The foregoing release ("Release") covers both claims that Employee knows about and those he may not know about. This Release does not include, however, a release of Employee's right, if any, to benefits under the Company's pension and profit sharing plans, whether qualified or non- qualified for federal income tax purposes, a release of any claim made by Employee under any welfare benefit plan prior to the signing of this Agreement, or a release of any rights or claims that Employee may have under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act which arise after the date the Employee signs this Release. Furthermore, this Release does not include a release of any rights of Employee or Employee's heirs, executors, or assigns relating to enforcement of obligations of the Company: (i) under this Agreement; or (ii) pertaining to indemnification of Employee as an officer, director, or employee of the Company. -7-

Employee further promises never to file or join in a lawsuit or other proceeding asserting any claims that are released hereby. Nothing in this Agreement shall be inferred to be an admission of any fault by the Company. E. Employee understands that Employee has been given a period of 21 days to review and consider this Agreement before signing it. Employee further understands that Employee may use as much of this 21 day period as Employee wishes prior to signing. EMPLOYEE IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY BEFORE SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT. EMPLOYEE REPRESENTS THAT HE HAS DONE SO AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT HE HAS BEEN REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL IN THE PREPARATION OF THIS AGREEMENT. F. Employee may revoke this Agreement within seven (7) days of signing it by hand delivering a written notice of revocation to the Secretary of the Company. If Employee revokes this Agreement, it will not become effective, the letter of resignation will be considered rescinded, and Employee will not receive the benefits specified in this Agreement. 5. All of the Company's obligations hereunder beyond those otherwise required by law are specifically subject to Employee fulfilling completely each of the promises and requirements set forth in this Agreement. Employee's failure to comply with each promise and requirement herein shall be cause for the immediate termination of any remaining payments or benefits accorded Employee by the terms of this Agreement. In addition, the Company expressly reserves the right to exercise any other legal remedies to which it may be entitled. 6. The Employee shall not be required to mitigate damages or the amount of any payment provided for under this Agreement by seeking other employment or otherwise, nor shall the amount of any payment provided for under this Agreement be reduced by -8-

any compensation earned by the Employee as the result of employment by another employer after the Termination, or otherwise. 7. This Agreement is governed by, and is to be construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of Connecticut. If under such law any portion of this Agreement is at any time deemed to be in conflict with any applicable statute, rule, regulation or ordinance, such portion shall be deemed to be modified or altered to conform thereto or, if that is not possible, to be omitted from this Agreement; and the invalidity of any such portion shall not affect the force, effect and validity of the remaining portion hereof. However, in connection with the enforceability of the Release, should the Employee attempt to challenge the enforceability of the Release, the Employee shall initially tender to the payor, by certified checks delivered to the Company, all cash amounts received pursuant to this Agreement, plus interest, and invite the Company to cancel this Agreement. In the event the Company accepts this offer, this Agreement shall be canceled. In the event the Company does not accept this offer, the Company shall so notify the Employee and the amount tendered by the Employee shall be placed in an interest-bearing account pending a determination of the enforceability of the Release. If the Release is determined to be enforceable, the amount in the account shall be repaid to the Employee, minus the attorneys fees and court costs incurred by the Company in responding to the challenge, which the Company shall retain. If the Release is determined not to be enforceable, the amount in the account shall be retained by the Company or its designee. 8. All notices under this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be deemed effective when delivered in person (in the Company's case, to its Secretary) or seventy-two (72) hours after deposit thereof in the U.S. mails, postage prepaid, for delivery as registered or certified mail -- addressed, in the case of the Employee, to him at the last address recorded in -9-

Employee's personnel file, and in the case of the Company, to its corporate headquarters, attention of the Secretary, or to such other address as Employee or the Company may designate in writing at any time or from time to time to the other party. In lieu of personal notice or notice by deposit in the U.S. mail, a party may give notice by telegram, confirmed facsimile or telex. 9. The Company will require any successor or assign (whether direct or indirect, by purchase, merger, consolidation or otherwise) to all or substantially all of the business and/or assets of the Company, by agreement in form and substance satisfactory to the Employee, expressly, absolutely and unconditionally to assume and agree to perform this Agreement in the same manner and to the same extent that the Company would be required to perform it if no such succession or assignment had taken place. Any failure of the Company to obtain such agreement prior to the effectiveness of any such succession or assignment shall be a material breach of this Agreement and shall entitle the Employee to the immediate receipt of all amounts not yet paid pursuant to Section 2.B(i) and the net present value of the fully vested Deferred Compensation Contract in lieu of the benefit specified in Section 2.D. As used in this Agreement, "Company" shall mean the Company as hereinbefore defined and any successor or assign to its business and/or assets as aforesaid which executes and delivers the agreement provided for in this Section 9 or which otherwise becomes bound by all the terms and provisions of this Agreement by operation of law. 10. This Agreement shall be binding on and inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the Employee's personal and legal representatives, executors, administrators, successors, heirs, distributees, devisees and legatees. If the Employee should die while any amounts are still payable to him under Section 2.B(i) and 2.G, all such amounts, unless otherwise -10-

provided herein, shall be paid in accordance with the terms of this Agreement to the Employee's devisee, legatee, or other designee or, if there be no such designee, to the Employee's estate. 11. This Agreement may be amended only by a subsequent written agreement of Employee and the Company. 12. To the extent Employee has been successful on the merits in seeking to obtain or enforce any right or benefit provided by the Agreement following Termination, the Company shall reimburse Employee for all actual and reasonable legal fees and related expenses incurred by Employee in connection therewith. Additionally, in the event of a "Change in Control" as such term is defined within Employee's former Employment Agreement dated November 21, 1991, the Company and/or its successor or assignee shall thereafter reimburse Employee for all actual and reasonable legal fees and related expenses incurred by Employee in seeking to obtain or enforce any right or benefit provided by the Agreement following Termination unless Employee's action has been determined by arbitration, as hereinafter provided, to have been frivolous. Any dispute or controversy arising out of or related to this Agreement shall be settled exclusively by binding arbitration as provided in the Arbitration Agreement attached as Exhibit D. -11-

                      EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT


          AGREEMENT entered into as of September 12, 1995,

between THE PERKIN-ELMER CORPORATION (the "Company"), a New York

corporation, and TONY L. WHITE ("Executive"), presently residing

at 575 Stable Lane, Lake Forest, Illinois 60045.



          WHEREAS, the Company desires to employ Executive on the

terms and conditions set forth herein; and

          WHEREAS, the Executive desires to render services to

the Company on the terms and conditions set forth herein;

          NOW, THEREFORE, the parties hereto agree as follows:

          1.     Employment. (a) The Company agrees to employ Executive,

and the Executive agrees to serve as Chairman, President and

Chief Executive Officer of the Company during the Term (as

defined in Section 2 hereof).  In such capacities, Executive

shall report to the Board of Directors of the Company (the

"Board") and shall have the customary powers, responsibilities

and authority of chief executive officers of corporations of the

size, type and nature of the Company, as it exists from time to

time, as are assigned by the Board. Executive also agrees to

serve during the Term as Chairman of the Board and as a member of

any committee of the Board.

                             -1-

(b) As soon as practicable after the date hereof, Executive shall devote his full business time, attention and best efforts to the affairs of the Company and its subsidiaries during the Term; provided, however, that nothing in this Agreement shall preclude Executive from engaging, so long as, in the reasonable determination of the Board, such activities do not interfere with his duties and responsibilities hereunder, in religious, charitable and community affairs, from managing any passive investment made by him in publicly traded equity securities or other property (provided that no such investment may exceed 1% of the equity of any entity, without the prior approval of the Board) or from serving, subject to the prior approval of the Board, as a member of boards of directors or as a trustee of any other corporation, association or entity. 2. Term of Employment. Subject to the provisions of Section 1(b) hereof Executive's term of employment (the "Term") under this Agreement shall commence (the "Commencement Date") as soon as practicable after the date hereof, but in no event later than September 15, 1995 and, subject to the terms hereof, shall terminate (the "Termination Date") on the earlier of (i) the third anniversary of the Commencement Date or (ii) termination of Executive's employment pursuant to this Agreement; provided, however, that the Term shall automatically renew for consecutive one-year periods, unless either party gives at least 180 days written notice of its intent not to renew the Agreement and any -2-

such extension shall constitute part of the Term. Any termination of employment by Executive (other than for death, Permanent Disability or Good Reason) may only be made upon 90 days prior written notice to the Company and any termination of employment by Executive for Good Reason may only be made upon 30 days prior written notice to the Company. 3. Compensation. (a) Base Salary. The Company will pay to the Executive a base salary ("Base Salary") at the rate of $550,000 per annum for the period commencing on the beginning of Executive's term of employment hereunder and ending on the Termination Date. Base Salary shall be payable in accordance with the ordinary payroll practices of the Company. Any increase in Base Salary shall be in the discretion of the Board and, as so increased, shall constitute "Base Salary" hereunder. It is understood that the Company shall review Executive's Base Salary annually, and in light of such review may, in the discretion of the Board of Directors or its Compensation Committee, increase such Base Salary taking into account the Executive's responsibilities, compensation of other executives of the Company and its subsidiaries, increase in salaries of executives of other corporations, performance by the Executive, and other pertinent factors. (b) Bonus Arrangements. During the Term, Executive shall be eligible to receive an annual bonus (a "Bonus") in respect of -3-

each Fiscal Year of the Company ("Fiscal Year") under, and subject to the terms of, the Company Contingent Compensation Plan (the "Bonus Plan") to the extent not inconsistent with the terms hereof. Executive's target bonus (the "Target Bonus") under the Bonus Plan will be equal to 100 percent of Executive's Base Salary and will be payable in accordance with the provisions of the Bonus Plan; provided, however, that with respect to Fiscal Year 1996, Executive shall receive total cash compensation of Base Salary plus Bonus of not less than $875,000. 4. Stock Arrangements. (a) Restricted Stock. (i) Upon Executive's commencement of employment with the Company, Executive shall be granted 30,000 shares of restricted stock of the Company ("Restricted Stock") pursuant to the Company 1993 Stock Incentive Plan for Key Executives (the "Stock Plan"). Except as otherwise specifically provided for herein, the terms of the Restricted Stock Agreement governing the Restricted Stock granted pursuant to this Agreement shall be no less favorable to Executive than the terms of the form of Restricted Stock Agreement currently used by the Company. The Restricted Stock will vest on the third anniversary of the date of grant based on the per share price of Company common stock on such date as follows: Per Share Price Vested Percentage less than $40 0% $40 or greater 50% -4-

$46 or greater 75% $52 or greater 100% (i) In addition to the foregoing grant of Restricted Stock, the Company, subject to the approval of the shareholders of the Company, will endeavor to implement a Restricted Stock performance program (the "Program") based on financial measures of corporate success ("Performance Targets") beginning in Fiscal Year 1997. Under the Program, the Board intends that Executive would be granted 36,000 shares of Restricted Stock on or about July 1, 1996 (the "Performance Stock"). Performance Stock would vest as follows: 6,000 shares upon the attainment of 90 percent or less of the Performance Target with respect to a Fiscal Year; 600 shares per percentage point over 90 percent of Performance Target up to 110 percent for a possible maximum per Fiscal Year of 18,000 shares. Upon the grant of the Performance Shares, Executive would be entitled to receive dividends and exercise voting rights with respect thereto, whether or not the Performance Shares have vested. In the event of Executive's termination of employment pursuant to Sections 7(a) or 7(b) hereof, all unvested Performance Shares would be forfeited. The terms of any Performance Shares would be governed by the terms of the Program. In the event that the Program is not approved by the shareholders of the Company, the Company shall establish a -5-

performance unit plan under which Executive shall be entitled to receive, in performance units, substantially equivalent economic value to the Performance Stock set forth in this Section 4(a)(ii), subject to the same terms and conditions that the Performance Stock would have been subject to had the Program been approved by shareholders. (b) Stock Options. (i) Upon Executive's commencement of employment with the Company, the Company shall grant Executive an option (an "Option") to purchase at fair market value on the date of grant 120,000 shares of common stock of the Company under the Stock Plan. The Option shall vest with respect to 50% of the shares subject thereto on each of the first and second anniversaries of the date of grant and shall expire ten years following the date of grant. Except as otherwise specifically provided for herein, the terms of the Option shall be no less favorable to Executive than the terms of the form of Stock Option Agreement currently used by the Company. (i) In addition to the foregoing Option grant, the Company, subject to the approval of the Board, anticipates making annual Option grants to Executive with respect to about 40,000 to 50,000 shares per year. (c) Stock Plan Governs. Unless otherwise specified in this Section 4, the terms of all Restricted Stock and Options granted to Executive hereunder, including, without limitation, terms relating to vesting and forfeiture, shall be governed by the -6-

Stock Plan; provided, however, that in the event of Executive's termination under Section 7(b) hereof the Company shall take all reasonable actions to cause the Restricted Stock granted under the terms hereof to become fully vested and the Options granted under the terms hereof to become fully exercisable. In the event the Company cannot effect the vesting and acceleration contemplated in the preceding sentence, the Company shall pay to Executive (i) with respect to each Option, an amount equal to the product of (x) the number of unvested shares subject to such Option, multiplied by (y) the excess of the fair market value of a share of Company common stock on the date of Executive's termination of employment, over the per share exercise price of such Option and (ii) with respect to each unvested share of Restricted Stock an amount equal to the fair market value of a share of Company common stock on the date of Executive's termination of employment. (d) Stock Ownership. It is understood that Company policy anticipates that Executive will maintain a level of stock ownership in the Company equal to three times Executive's Base Salary. Grants of Restricted Stock (including Performance Stock) under the terms of this Agreement and shares of Company stock acquired upon exercise of an Option shall be credited towards Executive's stock ownership. Executive is expected to achieve the foregoing level of Company stock ownership no later than five years after the date hereof. -7-

5. Make Whole Payment. In the event Executive forfeits or otherwise loses (i) any restricted stock with respect to the 22,000 shares of restricted stock which would have been granted on or about the end of calendar year 1995 or (ii) bonus payments with respect to calendar year 1995 from his prior employer as a result of his resignation from such employer in order to commence employment with the Company, the Company shall pay to Executive an amount, up to a maximum of $1.2 million, equal to the losses Executive incurs with respect to such restricted stock or bonus. The obligation of the Company to make such payment is contingent upon Executive's use of his best efforts to obtain payment of such amounts and after substantiation of Executive's losses to the reasonable satisfaction of the Board. 6. Employee Benefits. (a) Employee Benefit Plans, Programs or Arrangements. During the Term, Executive shall be entitled to participate in all employee benefit plans, programs or arrangements ("Benefit Plans") of the Company, in accordance with the terms thereof, as presently in effect or as they may be modified by the Company from time to time, which the Company makes available to senior executives of the Company. (b) Vacation; Sick Leave. During the Term, the Executive shall be entitled to a paid annual vacation of not less than -8-

twenty (20) business days during each calendar year and to reasonable sick leave. (c) Auto Allowance and Other Perquisites. During the Term, Executive shall receive an automobile allowance of $20,000 per year and the Company shall also reimburse Executive for the reasonable costs of financial planning and tax preparation in accordance with Company policy as in effect from time to time. In addition, Executive shall be entitled, during the Term, to any other perquisites and fringe benefits not specifically mentioned herein that are made available to senior executives of the Company, subject to the terms of this Agreement and commensurate with his position with the Company. (d) Supplemental Pension Benefit. It is understood that Executive has been employed by his prior employer for a period of twenty-five years ("Prior Service Period"). In addition to receiving credit under the Company's qualified defined benefit plan ("Pension Plan") and the Company's non-qualified Supplemental Retirement Plan and Contingent Compensation Plan for Key Executives (collectively, the "Non-Qualified Plans") for Executive's service with the Company under the terms of this Agreement, the Company shall pay Executive a special supplemental pension benefit equal to the amount which he would receive under the Pension Plan and the Non-Qualified Plans if Executive were credited with his Prior Service Period under the Pension Plan and the Non-Qualified Plans; provided, however, that Executive shall -9-

vest in 50 percent of his benefits hereunder on Executive's Commencement Date and in the remaining benefits hereunder at the rate of 10 percent per year commencing on the first anniversary of the Executive's Commencement Date. Executive's benefit hereunder shall be calculated in the manner set forth in Exhibit A hereto. Any benefits payable to Executive hereunder shall be reduced by $111,528 per year, and shall also be reduced by any amounts paid to Executive under the Pension Plan or the Non- Qualified Plans. (e) Relocation and Payment of Relocation Expenses. Executive agrees that he and his family shall relocate to the Wilton, Connecticut area. In order to assist Executive with such relocation, the Company shall reimburse Executive for all reasonable expenses incurred by Executive in connection with such relocation, including, without limitation, the cost of relocation consulting. 7. Termination of Employment. (a) Termination by the Company for Cause or Termination by the Executive Other Than for Good Reason. If the Company terminates the employment of the Executive for Cause, if the Executive terminates his employment other than for Good Reason or if Executive's employment is terminated due to Executive's death, Permanent Disability or retirement, the Company shall only be obligated to pay Executive (i) any accrued but unpaid portion of his Base Salary, (ii) any accrued vacation pay, and (iii) any -10-

benefits to which he is entitled to be paid in connection with such a termination under, and subject to, the terms of the Company's Benefit Plans. The amounts and benefits set forth in clauses (i), (ii), and (iii) of the preceding sentence shall hereinafter be referred to as "Accrued Benefits." (b) Termination by the Company Without Cause or by the Executive for Good Reason. If the Company terminates the Executive's employment with the Company without Cause, or if the Executive terminates his employment with the Company for Good Reason, the Company shall pay to Executive, in satisfaction of all the obligations of the Company with respect to Executive, all Accrued Benefits and, in addition, pay or provide to the Executive the following: (i) an amount equal to the sum of (x) three times the sum of (A) Executive's Base Salary at the rate in effect on Executive's Termination Date and (B) the amount of Executive's Target Bonus for the year in which the Termination Date occurs, (y) the fair market value of 36,000 shares of Company common stock on the Termination Date and (z) an amount equal to the product of (i) the Target Bonus in respect of the year in which such termination occurs, multiplied by (ii) a fraction the numerator of which is the number of days in the calendar year through Executive's Termination Date and the denominator of which -11-

is 365, payable in equal installments over a period of thirty-six months commencing on the Termination Date; (ii) for a period ending on the earlier of (x) three years following Executive's Termination Date or (y) the date on which Executive is covered under similar plans of a subsequent employer, Executive and his eligible dependents shall continue to participate in the welfare benefits plans of the Company (including, without limitation, medical, dental and life insurance coverage) in which he or his eligible dependents participated at any time during the one-year period ending on the date immediately preceding his Termination Date; provided, however, that (A) such continued participation is possible under the terms of such benefit plans, and (B) Executive continues to pay contributions for such participation at the rates paid for similar participation by active Company employees in similar positions to that held by the Executive immediately prior to the Termination Date. If such continued participation is not possible, the Company shall provide, at its sole cost and expense, substantially identical benefits to the Employee and shall pay an additional amount (reduced by the amount of any contributions required under subparagraph (B) above) to the Employee equal to the Employee's liability for federal, state and local income taxes on such amounts; -12-

(iii) the vesting or alternative cash payment provided for under Section 4(c) hereof with respect to Restricted Stock and Options granted to Executive under the terms hereof; and (iv) three years of additional vesting credit for purposes of Section 6(d) and three years of additional service credit under the Company's Non-Qualified Plans and for purposes of such plans, Executive's final average pay shall be deemed to be the sum of his then current Base Salary and his Target Bonus for the year in which the Termination Date occurs. (c) Waiver and Release. The obligation of the Company to make any payments or provide any benefits provided for under Section 5(b) hereof is contingent upon the execution, by Executive, of a waiver and release in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit B. (d) Termination of Employment Due To Death or Permanent Disability, or Retirement. In the event of Executive's termination of employment hereunder due to Executive's death, Permanent Disability or retirement, the Company will pay to Executive (or his designated beneficiaries) all Accrued Benefits and an amount equal to the product of (i) the Target Bonus in respect of the year in which such termination occurs, multiplied by (ii) a fraction the numerator of which is the number of days in the calendar year through Executive's Termination Date and the -13-

denominator of which is 365; provided, however, that no retirement shall be deemed to have taken place prior to Executive's attainment of age 65, unless the Board approves such retirement. (e) Good Reason. For purposes of this Agreement, "Good Reason" shall mean the occurrence of any of the following, other than with the Consent of Executive: (i) any failure to continue Executive as Chairman, President or Chief Executive Officer of the Company or any material reduction by the Company of Executive's duties or responsibilities (except in connection with the termination of Executive's employment for Cause, as a result of Permanent Disability, as a result of Executive's death or by Executive other than for Good Reason); (ii) a reduction by the Company in Executive's Base Salary, other than a reduction which is part of a general salary reduction program affecting senior executives of the Company. (iii) any material breach by the Company of the provisions of this Agreement; and (iv) the Company's requiring the Employee to be based more than fifty miles from Norwalk, Connecticut except for required travel on the Company's business to an extent substantially consistent with the business travel obligations of Executive hereunder. -14-

(f) Cause. For purposes of this Agreement, "Cause" shall mean (i) willful malfeasance or willful misconduct by Executive in connection with his employment, (ii) continuing refusal by Executive to perform his duties hereunder or any lawful direction of the Board of Directors of the Company (other than due to Executive's physical or mental incapacity), after a demand for a substantial performance is delivered to the Executive by the Board which identifies the manner in which the Executive has not performed his duties, (iii) any breach of the provisions of Section 9 of this Agreement by Executive or any other material breach of this Agreement by Executive, (iv) the willful engaging by the Executive in conduct which is materially injurious to the Company or (v) the indictment of Executive for (A) any felony or (B) a misdemeanor involving moral turpitude. Termination of Executive for Cause shall be made by delivery to Executive of a copy of a resolution duly adopted by the affirmative vote of not less than a majority of the Directors at a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Company called and held for the purpose (after 30 days prior written notice to Executive and reasonable opportunity for Executive to be heard before the Board prior to such vote), finding that in the reasonable judgment of such Board, Executive was guilty of the conduct set forth in any of clauses (i) through (iv) above and specifying the particulars thereof; provided, however, that with respect to clause (v) herein the Board shall determine in good faith that Executive's -15-

indictment is reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on Executive's ability to perform his duties hereunder as the Chief Executive Officer of the Company. (g) Permanent Disability. For purposes of this Agreement, "Permanent Disability" means the absence of the Executive from his duties with the Company on a full-time basis for one hundred and eighty (180) consecutive days as a result of incapacity due to physical or mental illness, such that executive would be entitled to long term disability benefits under the long term disability plan of the Company in effect at such time. 8. Notices. All notices or communications hereunder shall be in writing, addressed as follows: To the Company: The Perkin-Elmer Corporation 761 Main Avenue Norwalk, Connecticut 06859 Attn: Corporate Secretary To Executive: Tony L. White with a copy to: Schmiege, Daley & Mohan, P.C. at the addresses they provide to the Company for these purposes. 9. Nondisclosure of Confidential Information; Non- Competition. (i) Executive shall not, without the prior written consent of the Company, use, divulge, disclose or make accessible to any other person, firm, partnership, corporation or other -16-

entity any Confidential Information pertaining to the business of the Company or any of its affiliates, except (i) while employed by the Company, in the business of and for the benefit of the Company, or (ii) when required to do so by a court of competent jurisdiction, by any governmental agency having supervisory authority over the business of the Company, or by any administrative body or legislative body (including a committee thereof) with jurisdiction to order Executive to divulge, disclose or make accessible such information. For purposes of this Section 9, "Confidential Information" shall mean non-public information concerning the financial data, strategic business plans, product development (or other proprietary product data), customer lists, marketing plans and other non-public, proprietary and confidential information of the Company, its affiliates or customers, that, in any case, is not otherwise available to the public (other than by Executive's breach of the terms hereof). (i) During the period of his employment hereunder and for two years thereafter, Executive agrees that, without the prior written consent of the Company, (A) he will not, directly or indirectly, either as principal, manager, agent, consultant, officer, stockholder, partner, investor, lender or employee or in any other capacity, carry on, be engaged in or have any financial interest in, any business which is in competition with the business of the Company and (B) he shall not, on his own behalf -17-

or on behalf of any person, firm or company, directly or indirectly, solicit or offer employment to any person who has been employed by the Company at any time during the 12 months immediately preceding such solicitation. (ii) For purposes of this Section 9, a business shall be deemed to be in competition with the Company if it is principally involved in the purchase, sale or other dealing in any property or the rendering of any service purchased, sold, dealt in or rendered by the Company as a material part of the business of the Company within the same geographic area in which the Company or its affiliates effects such purchases, sales or dealings or renders such services. Nothing in this Section 9 shall be construed so as to preclude Executive from investing in any publicly or privately held company, provided Executive's beneficial ownership of any class of such company's securities does not exceed 1% of the outstanding securities of such class. (iii) Executive and the Company agree that this covenant not to compete is a reasonable covenant under the circumstances, and further agree that if in the opinion of any court of competent jurisdiction such restraint is not reasonable in any respect, such court shall have the right, power and authority to excise or modify such provision or provisions of this covenant as to the court shall appear not reasonable and to enforce the -18-

remainder of the covenant as so amended. Executive agrees that any breach of the covenants contained in this Section 9 would irreparably injure the Company. Accordingly, Executive agrees that the Company may, in addition to pursuing any other remedies it may have in law or in equity, cease making any payments otherwise required by this Agreement and obtain an injunction against Executive from any court having jurisdiction over the matter restraining any further violation of this Agreement by Executive. 10. Beneficiaries; References. Executive shall be entitled to select (and change, to the extent permitted under any applicable law) a beneficiary or beneficiaries to receive any compensation or benefit payable hereunder following Executive's death, and may change such election, in either case by giving the Company written notice thereof. In the event of Executive's death or a judicial determination of his incompetence, reference in this Agreement to Executive shall be deemed, where appropriate, to refer to his beneficiary, estate or other legal representative. Any reference to the masculine gender in this Agreement shall include, where appropriate, the feminine. 11. Arbitration. Other than the Company's rights under Section 9 hereof, any dispute or controversy arising under or in connection with this Agreement shall be settled exclusively by arbitration in Connecticut by three arbitrators in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Judgement -19-

may be entered on the arbitrator's award in any court having jurisdiction. 12. Separability; Legal Fees. If any provision of this Agreement shall be declared to be invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, such invalidity or unenforceability shall not affect the remaining provisions hereof which shall remain in full force and effect.

Management's Discussion and Analysis Management's Discussion of Operations The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes included on pages 28 through 43. Historical results and percentage relationships are not necessarily indicative of operating results for any future periods. Events Impacting Comparability In the fourth quarter of fiscal 1995, The Perkin-Elmer Corporation (PE or the Company) recorded a $23.0 million before-tax restructuring charge for actions to improve operating efficiencies and reduce future costs and expenses. The restructuring charge on an after- tax basis was $18.6 million, or $.44 per share (see Note 10). During the third quarter of fiscal 1995, the Company sold its 7% equity interest in Silicon Valley Group, Inc. (SVG), resulting in a before-tax gain of $20.8 million, or $.40 per share after-tax (see Note 2). In the first quarter of fiscal 1995, the Company concluded the sale of its Material Sciences segment consisting of the Company's Metco division. The Company announced its plan to divest Metco in July 1993. Consequently, Metco's net assets and operating results are presented in the accompanying consolidated financial statements as a discontinued operation (see Note 2). The Company sold its Applied Science Operation (ASO) in the first quarter of fiscal 1994 and its minority equity investment in MRJ, Inc. during the second quarter of fiscal 1994. In addition, the Physical Electronics Division (PHI) was sold as of the end of the third quarter of fiscal 1994 (see Note 2). On February 18, 1993, the shareholders of PE and Applied Biosystems, Inc. (ABI) approved the merger of the two companies. The transaction was accounted for as a pooling of interests (see Note 2). Effective June 30, 1993, the Company changed its fiscal year end from July 31 to June 30. Prior to fiscal 1993, the financial statements of PE's operations outside the United States and ABI were for fiscal years ended June 30, while PE's domestic operations reported on a July 31 year end. Fiscal 1993 includes PE's U.S. operations for eleven months compared with a full year for fiscal years 1995 and 1994. Results of Continuing Operations - 1995 Compared to 1994 Net revenues were $1,063.5 million in fiscal 1995 compared with $1,024.5 million in fiscal 1994. Included in the prior year were ASO and PHI net revenues totaling $39.2 million. These operations were sold during fiscal 1994. Excluding the effects of these two business units, net revenues increased $78.2 million, or 7.9%, over the prior year. Approximately $48 million of the increase was due to currency changes, primarily the U.S. dollar's weakness against the Japanese yen and certain European currencies. Overall, while the traditional analytical instrument products experienced lower demand in fiscal 1995, the Company continued to benefit from strong sales of life science products, especially PCR related instruments and consumables, and DNA sequencing systems and consumables. Excluding the effects of currency, net revenues from life science products increased $33.4 million over the prior year. Excluding the effects of ASO and PHI, net revenues in all geographic markets, with the exception of the Far East, increased over the prior year. U.S. net revenues increased 2.6%, as a result of an increase in biotechnology product sales. Europe's net revenues increased $64.7 million, or 18.1% over the prior year (approximately $30 million, or 8%, excluding the effects of currency). In the Far East, net revenues were unchanged for the year, following fiscal 1994's increase of 35.2%. During fiscal 1995, the Far East market was adversely impacted by decreased Japanese public and private funding in the biotechnology and environmental product areas. Other worldwide markets experienced modest improvements over the prior year due primarily to bioresearch products. Gross margin as a percentage of net revenues was 47.3% in fiscal 1995 compared with 48.1% in fiscal 1994, excluding ASO and PHI. Improvements in the U.S. market gross margin were offset by continued competitive pricing pressures worldwide and a less favorable product mix in the Far East. The change in product mix reflected lower sales volume of higher gross margin bioresearch products. Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $317.1 million in fiscal 1995, an increase of 6% over fiscal 1994. When measured on a comparable basis, excluding the expenses of ASO and PHI, SG&A expenses increased to 29.8% of net revenues from 29.6% in fiscal 1994. A decline in administrative expenses of approximately 2% was offset by the negative effects of currency translation in Europe and the Far East, and increased worldwide marketing expenses, primarily due to new product introductions. Research, development and engineering expenses (R&D) were $95.1 million in fiscal 1995 compared with $94.2 million in fiscal 1994. Excluding the expenses of ASO and PHI, R&D expenses for the current year increased 6.8%. Spending, primarily in bioresearch programs and applications, as well as the effects of currency translation in Europe, accounted for the increase. -23-

Operating income for fiscal 1995, inclusive of the $23.0 million before-tax charge for restructuring actions, was $67.9 million compared to $96.0 million in fiscal 1994. The restructuring plan focuses primarily on reducing the analytical instruments business infrastructure. The charge includes $20.7 million of severance and benefit costs for workforce reductions and $2.3 million of closure and facility consolidation expenses. All costs will result in cash outlays and these actions are expected to be substantially completed by December 31, 1995. The workforce reductions total 227 employees. These actions will be accomplished through involuntary reductions worldwide as well as a voluntary retirement incentive plan in the U.S. The workforce reductions will affect all geographic areas of operation and all disciplines ranging from production labor to executive management. This includes product departments, manufacturing, engineering, sales, service and support as well as corporate administrative staff. The voluntary retirement incentive plan was accepted by 91 employees, which is included in the total, at a cost of $6.8 million. Approximately 43 of these positions will have to be replaced, but at a lower overall cost basis. All costs associated with hiring or training of new employees were excluded from the charge and will be recognized in the period incurred. The planned closure and facility consolidation costs total $2.3 million. These actions include the shutdown of the Company's Puerto Rico manufacturing facility, consolidation of sales offices in the Far East and consolidation of administrative departments in the U.S. The closure of operations in Puerto Rico, expected to be completed within six months, includes severance costs for 46 employees, lease termination payments and other related costs. The Far East costs include lease penalties and restoration of vacated offices. Any costs associated with relocation of existing employees and moving expenses for inventory and equipment have been excluded from the charge and will be recognized in the period incurred. As of June 30, 1995, the Company made severance and benefit payments of $3.6 million to 55 employees separated under the aforementioned plan and payments of $.9 million were made for closure and facility consolidation costs. The balance of the cost to complete the restructuring plan was $18.5 million at June 30, 1995. Benefits from this restructuring program will be offset in part by the costs of hiring and training of new employees, moving and relocation. The before-tax savings from these actions approximates $20 million in costs and cash flow for fiscal 1996 and $25 million in succeeding years. Excluding the effects of the restructuring, ASO and PHI, operating income in the U.S. decreased $7.8 million. Increased marketing and R&D spending in biotechnology programs primarily accounted for fiscal 1995's decreased operating income. Operating income in Europe increased 38.7% over the prior year while operating income in the Far East decreased 16.5%. The Far East decline was due principally to a decrease in Japanese public funding for bioresearch products, competitive pricing pressures, increased marketing expenses and a less favorable sales product mix. Interest expense was $8.2 million in fiscal 1995 compared with $7.1 million in fiscal 1994. Higher borrowing levels in the first quarter and increased short-term interest rates for the current year contributed to the higher interest expense in fiscal 1995. Interest income was $3.5 million in fiscal 1995 compared with $2.4 million in fiscal 1994. The increase was the result of interest income on notes received from the sale of divested operations and increased cash balances. During the third quarter of fiscal 1995, the Company sold its equity interest in SVG resulting in a before- tax net gain of $20.8 million, $16.8 million after- tax, or $.40 per share. The effective income tax rate was 19% in fiscal 1995 compared with 17% for fiscal 1994. During the first quarter of fiscal 1994, the Company received a favorable ruling from the U.S. Tax Court which essentially concurred with the Company's pricing method on intercompany sales with respect to its operations in Puerto Rico. The resolution of this matter with the U.S. government contributed to a lower effective tax rate for fiscal 1994 when compared to fiscal 1995. An analysis of the differences between the federal statutory income tax rate and the effective rate is provided in Note 4. -24-

Results of Continuing Operations - 1994 Compared to 1993 Fiscal 1994 net revenues of $1,024.5 million increased $13.2 million from $1,011.3 million in fiscal 1993. The effect of selling ASO and PHI decreased net revenues by $37.0 million compared with the prior year. Foreign currency effects, resulting from the stronger U.S. dollar compared to the major European currencies, decreased net revenues approximately $25 million in fiscal 1994 when compared with fiscal 1993. Stronger worldwide demand for biotechnology products led to increased net revenues of $53.5 million (including the negative effects of currency) in fiscal 1994 and offset slower demand experienced in traditional analytical instrument product lines. Net revenues for U.S. operations in fiscal 1993 included only eleven months of results due to the change in the Company's fiscal year end. Management estimates this decreased fiscal 1993 net revenues by approximately $35 million. The change in year end and the loss of ASO and PHI net revenues approximately offset each other in the U.S. on a year-to-year comparison. The U.S., Far East and other worldwide markets improved during fiscal 1994 as demand for biotechnology products increased. Net revenues in the Far East increased 35.2%, showing improvement in both traditional analytical instrument products and bioresearch products. In Europe, the recessionary environment and strong competition resulted in net revenues at a lower level than the prior year. Net revenues in other countries increased 16.5% year-to-year as sales were strong in all analytical instrument product lines. Gross margin as a percentage of net revenues was 47.8% in fiscal 1994 compared with 47.1% in fiscal 1993. The improvement in gross margin reflected higher sales of biotechnology products in fiscal 1994 and only partial year sales of lower margin products from ASO and PHI. The increase in life science net revenues was particularly strong in the Far East, yielding improved gross margins which partially offset lower margins resulting from the poor economic conditions in Europe. SG&A expenses decreased $8.8 million in fiscal 1994 when compared to fiscal 1993. Favorable currency effects during fiscal 1994 accounted for approximately $7 million of the decrease. Fiscal 1993 included a $3.0 million one-time charge to write-down the value of certain receivables due from customers in Eastern Bloc countries. R&D expenses of $94.2 million in fiscal 1994 increased 12.3% over fiscal 1993, as a result of increased investment, primarily in life science programs. The Company recorded merger-related charges in the third quarter of fiscal 1993 of $12.5 million for transaction costs and $28.5 million to combine the operations of PE and ABI. The transaction costs included expenses for investment banker and professional fees. The costs to combine operations included provisions for streamlining marketing and distribution arrangements, consolidation of field sales and service offices worldwide, relocation of certain product lines and key personnel and severance- related costs. Interest expense was $7.1 million in fiscal 1994 compared with $13.1 million in fiscal 1993. The decrease was primarily the result of reduced borrowing levels and lower short-term interest rates. Interest income was $2.4 million in fiscal 1994 compared with $7.5 million in fiscal 1993. During fiscal 1993, the Company carried a 7% promissory note from F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. which was sold in June 1993. The elimination of interest earnings from this note accounted for most of the decrease in interest income in fiscal 1994. Other expense, net was $2.1 million in fiscal 1994 compared with other income, net of $6.1 million in fiscal 1993. In fiscal 1993, other income included an $8.5 million gain from the sale of the 7% promissory note and higher joint venture income, partially offset by a $5.0 million charge to reduce the carrying value of certain unoccupied properties (see Note 9). The effective income tax rate was 17% in fiscal 1994 compared with 44% in fiscal 1993. Fiscal 1993 included merger-related charges of $41.0 million which were not fully deductible for tax purposes, resulting in a higher tax rate. During the first quarter of fiscal 1994, the Company received a favorable ruling from the U.S. Tax Court which essentially concurred with the Company's pricing method on intercompany sales with respect to its operations in Puerto Rico. The resolution of this matter with the U.S. government and the additional tax benefits realized from the inclusion of ABI domestic results for a full year also reduced the Company's effective tax rate for fiscal 1994 when compared with the prior year. -25-

Discontinued Operations In the first quarter of fiscal 1995, the Company completed the sale of Metco to Sulzer Inc., a wholly- owned subsidiary of Sulzer, Ltd., Winterthur, Switzerland, for $64.8 million in cash. Metco's operating profits had declined from fiscal 1992 to fiscal 1994, primarily due to the weakness in the aircraft turbine engine market and significant downsizing that has occurred in the airline industry in recent years. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 1994, the Company recorded a $7.7 million after-tax loss on disposal of, including a provision of $5.0 million (less applicable income taxes of $.8 million) for Metco's operating losses during the phase-out period. The sale allows the Company to concentrate on growth opportunities in its core businesses and focus its financial and operational resources in life science and analytical instruments. Loss from discontinued operations in fiscal 1994 also included the after-tax settlement of $15.2 million, including legal costs, related to the Hubble Space Telescope mirror (see Note 2). Changes in Accounting Principles The Company adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standard (SFAS) No. 115, "Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity Securities," in fiscal 1995. The impact of adopting the statement was not material to the consolidated financial statements. The Company adopted SFAS No. 106, "Employers' Accounting for Postretirement Benefits Other Than Pensions," No. 109, "Accounting for Income Taxes" and No. 112, "Employers' Accounting for Postemployment Benefits" as of August 1, 1992. A charge of $83.1 million, or $1.85 per share, was recorded in fiscal 1993, representing the cumulative after-tax effect of the new standards. SFAS No. 121, "Accounting for the Impairment of Long- Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed Of," is required to be adopted no later than fiscal 1997. The Company is currently analyzing the statement to determine the impact, if any, on the consolidated financial statements. Foreign Currency The results of the Company's international operations are subject to foreign currency fluctuations. The Company's risk management policy is to reduce the effects of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. The Company utilizes foreign exchange forward contracts and foreign exchange option contracts to minimize its risk of loss from fluctuations in exchange rates on the settlement of intercompany receivables and payables, firm commitments and certain intercompany loans. Management believes any reasonably likely change in the level of underlying major currencies being hedged will not have a material adverse effect on the consolidated financial statements. A discussion of the Company's foreign currency hedging activities is provided in Note 12. Management's Discussion of Financial Resources and Liquidity The following discussion of financial resources and liquidity focuses on the Consolidated Statements of Financial Position (page 29) and the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows (page 30). Consolidated Statements of Financial Position Cash and short-term investments are primarily cash, cash equivalents, time deposits and certificates of deposit with original maturity dates of three months to one year (collectively "cash"). The Company's cash balance increased $55.0 million in fiscal 1995 to $80.0 million at June 30, 1995. This increase was primarily provided by operations, which accounted for $35.0 million of the increase. The Company's accounts receivable balance at June 30, 1995 totaled $234.2 million compared with $231.6 million at June 30, 1994. In fiscal 1995, the Company expanded the sale of the accounts receivable program in Japan (see Note 1). Accounts receivable sold under this program more than offset an increase of approximately $13 million from foreign currency translation. Inventories were $212.9 million at June 30, 1995 compared with $201.4 million a year ago. The effects of foreign currency translation accounted for approximately $10 million of the increase. Prepaid expenses and other current assets increased to $74.6 million at June 30, 1995 from $56.7 million at the end of fiscal 1994. The increase of $17.9 million was primarily due to increased current deferred tax assets and higher royalty receivables. Total other long-term assets decreased from $164.5 million at June 30, 1994 to $136.0 million at June 30, 1995. Other long-term assets primarily consist of marketable securities maturing beyond one year, goodwill, investments in equity securities, investments in affiliated companies, deferred tax assets and other long-term assets. The primary reason for the decrease in long-term assets was the sale of the Company's equity interest in SVG. The net cash proceeds from the sale were $49.8 million. -26-

Net assets of discontinued operations of $56.2 million at June 30, 1994 comprised the net assets of the Company's Metco division, sold in the first quarter of fiscal 1995 for $64.8 million in cash. Other accrued expenses increased $18.7 in fiscal 1995. Fiscal 1995 other accrued expenses included $18.5 million related to the provision for restructured operations. This increase was partially offset by the payment of $9.4 million of costs related to the merger with ABI. Total long and short-term borrowings were $88.9 million at June 30, 1995 compared with $117.8 million at the end of fiscal 1994. Excluding the effects of currency translation, total borrowings decreased approximately $43 million. The Company's debt to total capitalization was 23% at June 30, 1995 compared with 29% at June 30, 1994. The Company believes its cash and short-term investments, funds generated from operating activities and available borrowing facilities are sufficient to provide for financing needs in the foreseeable future. The Company has unused credit facilities totaling $280 million. PE has consistently maintained a strong financial position and conservative capital structure. Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows The Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows depict cash flows by three broad categories: operating activities, investing activities and financing activities. Operating activities are the principal source of the Company's cash flows. Investment in property, plant and equipment represents the Company's ongoing capital investing activity. Major ongoing activities reported under financing activities include payment of dividends to shareholders and transactions involving the Company's various employee stock plans. PE's capital expenditures for fiscal 1995 were $28.9 million compared with $34.5 million for fiscal 1994 and $28.4 million for fiscal 1993. Net cash provided by operating activities was $72.0 million for fiscal 1995 compared with $37.0 million for fiscal 1994 and $66.4 million for fiscal 1993. Lower inventory levels, and higher accounts receivable collections in fiscal 1995 were the primary reasons for the increased cash from operations. During fiscal 1995, cash was used for accounts payable disbursements, tax payments, funding for the Company's U.S. pension and profit sharing plans, funding of restructuring costs and payments related to the fiscal 1993 merger with ABI. During fiscal 1995, the Company generated $119.3 million from the sale of discontinued operations and assets. In addition, $10.3 million was received from the exercise of stock options. Cash was used to reduce short-term borrowings, pay dividends, fund capital expenditures and repurchase shares of the Company's common stock. Approximately 1.4 million shares of common stock, at a cost of $40.3 million, were repurchased during fiscal 1995. Common stock purchases for the treasury were made in support of the Company's various stock plans and as part of a share repurchase authorization. In addition, cash was used for the fourth quarter purchase of Photovac Inc. As previously mentioned, the Company recorded a $23.0 million before-tax restructuring provision in the fourth quarter of fiscal 1995. The funding for the restructuring, which will be substantially completed in fiscal 1996, will be from current cash balances. The before-tax benefit from these actions is expected to be approximately $20 million in fiscal 1996 and approximately $25 million in succeeding years. Impact of Inflation and Changing Prices Inflation and changing prices are continually monitored. The Company attempts to minimize the impact of inflation by improving productivity and efficiency through continual review of both manufacturing capacity and operating expense levels. When operating and manufacturing costs increase, the Company attempts to recover such costs by increasing, over time, the selling price of its products and services. The Company believes the effects of inflation have been appropriately managed and therefore have not had a material impact on its historic operations and resulting financial position. Outlook Expectations for fiscal 1996 are tied to economic and political uncertainties in the Company's key markets around the world. While Europe has experienced a gradual upturn, management remains cautious since this recovery has not been as strong in certain countries where the Company's market position, specifically in analytical instruments, is significant. In addition, the uncertainty in Japanese public and private funding remains an area of concern and competitive pricing pressures continue to be a factor in all markets. The Company is conducting a full review of its analytical instruments product lines and supporting infrastructure, including but not limited to the possible sale of product lines, closure of operations and outsourcing of non-strategic functions. The Company has already implemented actions to benefit the cost structure in analytical instruments in response to the decreased market demand and continues to maximize its leadership position in worldwide biotechnology markets. -27-

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements Note 1 Accounting Policies and Practices Principles of Consolidation. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of all majority-owned subsidiaries of The Perkin-Elmer Corporation (PE or the Company), reflect the fiscal 1993 acquisition of Applied Biosystems, Inc. (ABI) as a pooling of interests and present the Company's former Material Sciences segment as a discontinued operation (see Note 2). Effective June 30, 1993, the Company changed its fiscal year end from July 31 to June 30. Prior to fiscal 1993, the financial statements of ABI and PE's operations outside the United States were for fiscal years ended June 30, while PE's domestic operations reported on a July 31 fiscal year end. Fiscal 1993, therefore, includes PE's domestic operations for eleven months. Certain amounts in the consolidated financial statements and notes have been reclassified for comparative purposes. Changes in Accounting Principles. The Company adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 115, "Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity Securities," in fiscal 1995. The impact of adopting the statement was not material to the consolidated financial statements. The Company is required to implement SFAS No. 121, "Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed Of," no later than fiscal 1997. The statement requires that long- lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles to be held and used by an entity be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. The Company is currently analyzing the statement to determine the impact, if any, on the consolidated financial statements. Foreign Currency. Assets and liabilities of foreign operations, where the functional currency is the local currency, are translated into U.S. dollars at the fiscal year end exchange rates. The related translation adjustments are recorded as a separate component of shareholders' equity. Revenues and expenses are translated using average exchange rates prevailing during the year. Foreign currency transaction gains and losses, as well as translation adjustments of foreign operations where the functional currency is the dollar, are included in net income (loss). Cash, Short-Term Investments and Marketable Securities. Cash equivalents consist of highly liquid debt instruments, time deposits and certificates of deposit with original maturities of three months or less. Time deposits and certificates of deposit with original maturities of three months to one year are classified as short-term investments. Short-term investments and marketable securities are recorded at cost which approximates market value. Accounts Receivable. The Company periodically sells accounts receivable arising from business conducted in Japan. During the fiscal years ended 1995, 1994 and 1993, the Company received cash proceeds of $101.4 million, $43.8 million, and $17.8 million, respectively. The Company believes it has adequately provided for any risk of loss which may occur under these arrangements. Investments. The equity method of accounting for investments in 50% or less owned joint ventures is used. Investments where ownership is less than 20% are carried at cost. Inventories. Inventories are stated at the lower of cost (on a first-in, first-out basis) or market. Inventories at June 30, 1995 and 1994 included the following components: (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 Raw materials and supplies $ 29.2 $ 24.9 Work-in-process 18.9 16.4 Finished products 164.8 160.1 Total inventories $ 212.9 $ 201.4 Property, Plant and Equipment and Depreciation. Property, plant and equipment are recorded at cost and consisted of the following at June 30, 1995 and 1994: (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 Land $ 24.1 $ 20.8 Buildings and leasehold improvements 132.9 124.6 Machinery and equipment 205.3 183.7 Property, plant and equipment, at cost 362.3 329.1 Accumulated depreciation and amortization 206.9 180.0 Property, plant and equipment, net $ 155.4 $ 149.1 Provisions for depreciation of owned property, plant and equipment are based upon the expected useful lives of the assets and computed primarily by the straight- line method. Leasehold improvements are amortized over their estimated useful lives or the term of the applicable lease, whichever is less, using the straight-line method. Major renewals and improvements that significantly add to productive capacity or extend the life of an asset are capitalized. Repairs, maintenance and minor renewals and improvements are expensed when incurred. Intangible Assets. The excess of purchase price over the net asset value of companies acquired is amortized on a straight-line method over periods not exceeding 40 years. Patents and trademarks are amortized using the straight-line method over their expected useful lives. The accumulated amortization of intangibles at June 30, 1995 and 1994 was $19.0 million and $15.5 million, respectively. Revenues. The Company recognizes revenues when products are shipped or services are rendered. Revenues from service contracts are recorded as deferred service contract revenues and reflected in net revenues over the term of the contract. -32-

Research, Development and Engineering. Research, development and engineering costs are expensed when incurred. Income Taxes. The Company intends to permanently reinvest substantially all of the undistributed earnings of its foreign subsidiaries. Net Income (Loss) Per Share. Net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares and dilutive common stock equivalents outstanding. Common stock equivalents include stock options. The difference between weighted average shares for primary and fully diluted net income (loss) per share was not significant for the years presented. Supplemental Cash Flow Information. Cash paid for interest and income taxes and noncash investing and financing activities excluded from the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the fiscal years ended 1995, 1994 and 1993 were as follows: (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 1993 Interest $ 8.0 $ 7.0 $12.5 Income taxes $27.3 $16.1 $18.5 Noncash investing and financing activities: Long-term note received from the sale of assets (see Note 2) $ 7.2 Affiliate stock distribution $ .4 $ 7.0 Minimum pension liability adjustment $ (1.8) $ 4.4 $ 16.3 Note 2 Acquisitions and Dispositions Photovac Inc. On April 12, 1995, the Company acquired Photovac Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of field portable analytical instrumentation, for $11.0 million in cash. Under the terms of the agreement, additional payments over a 3 year period are required if certain specified performance levels are achieved. The acquisition was accounted for as a purchase. The net assets and results of operations have been included in the consolidated financial statements since the date of acquisition. The excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the net assets acquired, or goodwill, is included in other long-term assets and will be amortized over a 20 year period. The pro forma effect of the acquisition on the Company's consolidated financial statements was not significant. Applied Biosystems, Inc. On February 18, 1993, the shareholders of PE and ABI approved the merger of the two companies. Under the terms of the agreement, ABI shareholders received .678 of a share of the Company's common stock for each ABI share. Accordingly, the Company issued 10.2 million shares of its common stock for all the outstanding shares of ABI common stock. Additionally, outstanding options to acquire ABI common stock were converted to options to acquire 1.5 million shares of the Company's common stock. ABI, founded in 1981, is a leading supplier of automated systems for life science research and related applications. ABI develops, manufactures and markets systems, instruments and associated chemicals used to purify, analyze, interpret results and synthesize biological molecules such as DNA, RNA and proteins. The merger qualified as a tax-free reorganization and was accounted for as a pooling of interests. Accordingly, the Company's financial statements include the results of ABI for all periods presented. Combined and separate results of PE and ABI during the period preceding the merger were as follows (in millions): Six months ended January 31, 1993 (unaudited) PE ABI Combined Net revenues $420.2 $100.9 $521.1 Net income(loss) $(54.5) $ 5.7 $(48.8) Intercompany transactions between the two companies for the period presented were not material. In connection with the merger, the Company recorded one-time charges in the third quarter of fiscal 1993 for transaction costs ($12.5 million) and to reflect the costs to combine operations of the two companies ($28.5 million). The transaction costs included expenses for investment banker and professional fees. The costs to combine operations included provisions for streamlining marketing and distribution arrangements, consolidation of field sales and service offices worldwide, relocation of certain product lines and key personnel and severance-related costs. Discontinued Operations Legal Settlement. During the first quarter of fiscal 1994, the Company paid $15.5 million to settle potential claims related to the Hubble Space Telescope mirror. This amount, which included legal costs, resulted in an after-tax charge of $15.2 million and is recorded in discontinued operations in the fiscal 1994 Consolidated Statement of Operations. In 1989, the Company had sold the unit which performed the work on the telescope to a subsidiary of Hughes Aircraft Company. Material Sciences Segment. On July 29, 1993, the Company announced its plans to divest its Material Sciences segment which consisted of the Company's Metco division headquartered in Westbury, New York. Metco produces combustion, electric arc and plasma thermal spray equipment and supplies. On September 30, 1994, the Company concluded the sale of Metco to Sulzer Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sulzer, Ltd., Winterthur, Switzerland. The Company received cash proceeds of $64.8 million as a result of the sale. The Company recorded an after-tax loss on the disposal of $7.7 million during the fourth quarter of fiscal 1994, including a provision of $5.0 million (less applicable income taxes of $.8 million) for operating losses during the phase-out period. The net assets and operating results of Metco are presented in the fiscal 1994 and 1993 consolidated financial statements as a discontinued operation. -33-

Lynx Therapeutics, Inc. On October 5, 1992, prior to its merger with PE, ABI announced the decision to distribute to its shareholders approximately 82% of the stock of its subsidiary, Lynx Therapeutics, Inc. (Lynx). The accompanying Consolidated Statement of Operations for fiscal 1993 reflects the Lynx operating results as a discontinued operation. The net assets of Lynx were not significant. Summary results of the aforementioned discontinued operations were as follows: (Dollar amounts in millions) For the years ended June 30, 1994 1993 Net revenues $106.7 Costs and expenses 103.2 Provision for income taxes .2 Income from discontinued operations - Metco prior to the measurement date 3.3 Loss on disposal of Metco including a provision of $5.0 for operating losses during the phase-out period, less applicable income taxes of $.8 $ (7.7) Loss from discontinued operations, net of income taxes of $(.2) - Lynx (1.6) Legal settlement, less applicable income taxes of $.3 (15.2) Income (loss) from discontinued operations $ (22.9) $ 1.7 The net assets of Metco have been segregated in the June 30, 1994 Consolidated Statement of Financial Position and are summarized below: (Dollar amounts in millions) 1994 Assets: Accounts receivable, net $25.6 Inventories 26.3 Prepaid expenses and other current assets 1.2 Property, plant and equipment, net 20.1 Other long-term assets 3.9 Total assets 77.1 Liabilities: Accounts payable $ 5.3 Other accrued expenses 3.1 Other current liabilities 3.5 Long-term liabilities 4.3 Total liabilities 16.2 Foreign currency translation adjustments 4.7 Net assets $56.2 Dispositions Silicon Valley Group, Inc. During the third quarter of fiscal 1995, the Company sold its equity interest in Silicon Valley Group, Inc. for net cash proceeds of $49.8 million, resulting in a before-tax gain of $20.8 million, or $.40 per share after-tax. Applied Science Operation. During the first quarter of fiscal 1994, the Company sold the net assets of its Applied Science Operation (ASO) to Orbital Sciences Corporation. The Company received cash proceeds of $.6 million and 320,000 shares of Orbital Sciences Corporation common stock which were subsequently disposed of in the second quarter of fiscal 1994 for proceeds of approximately $5 million. MRJ, Inc. During the second quarter of fiscal 1994, the Company sold its minority equity investment in MRJ, Inc. to MRJ Group, Inc. for $3.3 million in cash. In addition, two subordinated notes due from MRJ Group, Inc. were repaid to the Company. Physical Electronics Division. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 1994, the Company completed the sale of its Physical Electronics Division (PHI) to the management of PHI and Chemical Venture Partners. The unit was sold for approximately net book value. The Company received cash proceeds of $23.0 million and a 10% interest-bearing note with a face value of $7.2 million in connection with the sale. Note 3 Debt and Lines of Credit Loans payable and long-term debt at June 30, 1995 and 1994 are summarized below: (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 Loans payable, United States: Commercial paper $15.8 Loans payable, foreign: Notes payable, banks $50.3 $65.9 Current maturities of long-term debt 4.5 1.9 Total loans payable, foreign 54.8 67.8 Total loans payable $54.8 $83.6 Long-term debt: 3.255% Yen term loan maturing in fiscal 1997 $33.2 $28.4 Yen denominated bank notes with maturities through fiscal 2005 5.7 Other .9 .2 Total long-term debt $34.1 $34.3 -34-

The weighted average interest rates at June 30, 1995 and 1994 for bank borrowings were 7.2% and 6.2%, respectively. There were no commercial paper borrowings outstanding at June 30, 1995. The commercial paper borrowing rate at June 30, 1994 was 4.5%. On June 1, 1994, the Company entered into a $150 million credit agreement consisting of a $50 million, 364 day revolving credit agreement and a $100 million, three year revolving credit agreement. The $50 million, 364 day revolving credit agreement expired in fiscal 1995. The $100 million three year revolving credit agreement was amended to extend the maturity an additional three years to June 1, 2000. Commitment and facility fees are based on the leverage and interest coverage ratios. Interest rates on amounts borrowed vary depending on whether borrowings are undertaken in the domestic or Eurodollar markets. There were no borrowings under the facility at June 30, 1995. The Company's subsidiary, Perkin-Elmer Japan, has a three year credit agreement under which it borrowed 2.8 billion Yen at a fixed interest rate of 3.255%. The final maturity date is scheduled for February 1997. At June 30, 1995, the Company had unused credit facilities for short-term borrowings from domestic and foreign banks in various currencies totaling $280 million. Yen denominated bank notes, with fixed interest rates of 5.4% and 6.2%, and original maturity dates of 2004, were repaid in July 1995. Under various debt and credit agreements, the Company is required to maintain certain minimum net worth and interest coverage ratios. Annual maturities of long-term debt for fiscal years 1996 and 1997 are $4.5 million and $33.2 million, respectively. Maturities for fiscal years 1998, 1999, 2000 and beyond total $.9 million. Note 4 Income Taxes Effective August 1, 1992, the Company adopted the provisions of SFAS No. 109, "Accounting for Income Taxes." The statement requires recognition of deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns. The cumulative effect of the change in the method of accounting for income taxes attributable to fiscal years prior to 1993 was to increase net income by $19.9 million. The tax benefit primarily resulted from the recognition of deferred tax assets relating to future tax amortization of foreign intangibles. The impact of this change on fiscal 1993 operating results, after recording the cumulative effect, was to recognize additional tax expense of $2 million. Income before income taxes for fiscal years ended 1995, 1994 and 1993 was as follows: (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 1993 United States $58.8 $65.0 $16.1 Foreign 23.8 24.1 27.8 Total $82.6 $89.1 $43.9 The components of the provision for income taxes for fiscal years ended 1995, 1994 and 1993 consisted of the following: (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 1993 Currently payable: Federal $ 2.2 $(1.3) $ 2.4 Foreign 17.2 12.6 10.4 State and local .9 2.1 1.0 Total currently payable 20.3 13.4 13.8 Deferred: Federal (7.5) 2.3 Foreign 2.9 1.8 3.4 Total deferred (4.6) 1.8 5.7 Total provision for income taxes $15.7 $15.2 $19.5 Significant components of deferred tax assets and liabilities at June 30, 1995 and 1994 are summarized below: Deferred Tax Assets (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 Intangibles $ 12.4 $ 13.8 Inventories 9.4 7.7 Postretirement and postemployment benefits 35.6 38.2 Other reserves and accruals 62.6 56.8 Tax credit carryforwards 10.6 20.7 Foreign loss carryforwards 16.4 6.8 Subtotal 147.0 144.0 Valuation allowance (116.6) (119.6) Total deferred tax asset $ 30.4 $ 24.4 Deferred Tax Liabilities (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 Inventories $ 1.1 $ 1.0 Other reserves and accruals 4.2 6.6 Total deferred tax liability 5.3 7.6 Total deferred tax asset, net $ 25.1 $ 16.8 -35-

A reconciliation of the federal statutory tax provision to the Company's tax provision for the fiscal years ended 1995, 1994 and 1993 was as follows: (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 1993 Federal statutory rate 35% 35% 34% Tax at federal statutory rate $28.9 $31.2 $14.9 State income taxes (net of federal benefit) .6 1.4 .6 Effect on income from foreign operations 13.4 (.2) (.5) Merger expenses 4.3 Utilization of tax benefit carryforwards (18.3) (16.5) (8.8) U.S. gain from foreign reorganization 4.6 Alternative minimum tax 1.1 Domestic temporary differences for which (benefit is recognized)/no benefit is provided (5.4) (7.4) 5.7 Other (3.5) 2.1 2.2 Total provision for income taxes $15.7 $15.2 $19.5 At June 30, 1995, the Company has an available alternative minimum tax credit of $9.9 million which has an indefinite carryforward period. The Company has loss carryforwards of approximately $28 million in various foreign countries, primarily Germany and Japan, with varying expiration dates. The Company's federal tax returns have been examined by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for the years 1975 through 1989, and the IRS is beginning its examination of 1990 through 1992. The issues for the years 1975 through 1981, primarily the Company's method of intercompany pricing on sales with its subsidiary in Puerto Rico, have been litigated and opinions rendered by the United States Tax Court. The judgment by the Tax Court, which essentially upheld the Company's intercompany pricing methods, contributed to the lower effective tax rate in fiscal 1994. While the years 1982 through 1987 are at the IRS appeals level, most major issues have been tentatively settled. The Company has filed a protest with the IRS with regard to the 1988 and 1989 years. It is the Company's opinion that it has adequately provided in the financial statements for any potential IRS assessments or Tax Court deficiencies relating to these years. Note 5 Retirement and Other Benefits Pension Plans. Substantially all employees worldwide are covered by either PE or government sponsored retirement plans. Total pension expense for its domestic plans and significant foreign plans was $15.0 million for fiscal 1995, $17.3 million for fiscal 1994 and $13.8 million for fiscal 1993. The Company has a noncontributory pension plan covering substantially all of its domestic employees. Pension benefits are generally based on years of service and compensation during active employment. Plan assets are invested in various securities including U.S. government and federal agency obligations, corporate debt, preferred and common stocks, foreign government obligations, real estate and foreign equities. The Company provides funds to the plan in accordance with statutory funding requirements. In addition, the Company has nonqualified supplemental and deferred compensation plans for certain officers and key employees which are unfunded and paid directly by the Company. Employees outside of the U.S. generally receive retirement benefits under various pension plans based upon such factors as years of service and employee compensation levels which conform to the practice common in the country in which PE conducts business. The following assumptions and components were used for the fiscal years ended 1995, 1994 and 1993 in the determination of net pension expense: Domestic Plans (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 1993 Assumptions: Discount rate 8 1/2% 8 1/2% 8 1/2% Increase in future compensation 4% 4% 4% Expected long-term rate of return on assets 8 1/2-9 1/4% 8 1/2-10% 8 1/2-10% Components: Service cost $ 7.8 $ 9.1 $ 6.2 Interest cost 30.7 30.6 25.6 Actual return on assets (29.9) (19.5) (29.0) Net amortization and deferral (.9) (9.8) 3.5 Net pension expense $ 7.7 $ 10.4 $ 6.3 Foreign Plans (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 1993 Assumptions: Discount rate 6 1/2-8% 6-8 1/2% 6 1/2-9 1/2% Increase in future compensation 4 1/4-4 1/2% 4 1/2% 4 1/2-5% Expected long-term rate of return on assets 6 1/2-10% 6 1/2-10% 7-10 1/2% Components: Service cost $ 3.0 $ 2.9 $ 3.1 Interest cost 6.2 6.0 6.3 Actual return on assets (2.6) (1.7) (4.3) Net amortization and deferral .7 ( .3) 2.4 Net pension expense $ 7.3 $ 6.9 $ 7.5 -36-

The following table sets forth the funded status of the plans and amounts recognized in the Company's Consolidated Statements of Financial Position at June 30, 1995 and 1994: Domestic Plans (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 Plan assets at fair value $ 368.4 $ 339.3 Projected benefit obligation 392.1 379.1 Excess of projected benefit obligation over plan assets (23.7) (39.8) Unrecognized items: Net actuarial loss 55.2 57.2 Prior service cost (5.3) 4.7 Net transition asset (11.3) (13.7) Minimum pension liability adjustment (37.4) (37.9) Accrued pension liability $ (22.5) $ (29.5) Actuarial present value of accumulated benefits $ 390.8 $ 368.8 Accumulated benefit obligation related to vested benefits $ 381.6 $ 362.7 The recognition of an additional minimum pension liability is required when the actuarial present value of accumulated benefits exceeds plan assets and accrued pension liabilities. The minimum liability adjustment, less allowable intangible assets net of tax benefit, is reported as a reduction of shareholders' equity. Foreign Plans Assets Exceed Accumulated Accumulated Benefits Benefits Exceed Assets (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 1995 1994 Plan assets at fair value $ 25.6 $ 25.2 Projected benefit obligation 25.8 24.8 $ 72.8 $ 59.7 Plan assets in excess of (less than) projected benefit obligation (.2) .4 (72.8) (59.7) Unrecognized items: Net actuarial (gain) loss 4.6 3.8 (2.5) (1.0) Prior service cost .3 .4 Net transition (asset) obligation (2.7) (3.4) 7.8 7.4 Pension asset (liability) $ 2.0 1.2 $(67.5) $(53.3) Actuarial present value of accumulated benefits $ 23.6 $ 23.1 $ 58.7 $ 47.1 Accumulated benefit obligation related to vested benefits $ 53.8 $ 43.0 Savings Plan. PE has a domestic profit sharing and savings plan whereby, when before-tax earnings per share of the common stock outstanding exceed $.3125 per share, the Company is required to fund the plan in an amount equal to 8% of consolidated before-tax earnings, as defined by the plan, provided the amount of such payment does not reduce the balance of such earnings below $.3125 per share of common stock. The profit sharing payment by the Company is allocated among its domestic employees (ABI employees were covered as of July 1, 1993) in direct proportion to their earnings. PE's contribution was $7.6 million for fiscal 1995, $7.5 million for fiscal 1994 and $6.7 million for fiscal 1993. Effective October 1, 1995, the Company's profit sharing and savings plan will be replaced with a 401k savings plan. The new plan provides Company contributions in the amount of 2% of regular compensation, as well as dollar-for-dollar matching Company contributions up to 4% of regular compensation. Retiree Health Care and Life Insurance Benefits. PE provides certain health care and life insurance benefits to domestic employees, hired prior to January 1, 1993, who retire from the Company and satisfy certain service and age requirements. Generally, the medical coverage pays a stated percentage of most medical expenses reduced for any deductible and payments made by Medicare or other group coverage. Benefits are administered through an insurance carrier paid by PE. The cost of providing these benefits is shared with retirees. The cost sharing provisions will vary depending on the retirement date, age and years of service. The plan is unfunded. In fiscal 1993, the Company adopted SFAS No. 106, "Employers' Accounting for Postretirement Benefits Other Than Pensions." This statement requires the accrual of the cost of providing postretirement benefits, including medical and life insurance coverage, during the active service period of the employee. The Company elected to immediately recognize the accumulated liability, measured as of August 1, 1992. This resulted in an after-tax charge of $88.8 million, or $1.98 per share. The effect of this change on fiscal 1993 operating results, after recording the cumulative effect for fiscal years prior to 1993, was to recognize additional after-tax expense of $3.0 million, or $.07 per share. The pro forma effect of the change on fiscal years prior to 1993 was not determinable. Prior to fiscal 1993, the Company recognized expense for these benefits in the year of payment. -37-

The following table sets forth the accrued postretirement benefit liability recognized in the Company's Consolidated Statements of Financial Position at June 30, 1995 and 1994: (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 Actuarial present value of postretirement benefit obligation: Retirees $ 68.2 $ 68.8 Fully eligible active participants 1.4 7.5 Other active participants 10.2 10.9 Accumulated postretirement benefit obligation (APBO) 79.8 87.2 Unrecognized net gain 16.5 6.6 Accrued postretirement benefit liability $ 96.3 $ 93.8 The net postretirement benefit cost for fiscal 1995 and 1994 included the following components: (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 Service cost $ .7 $ 1.2 Interest cost 6.8 7.2 Amortization of unrecognized gain (.1) Net postretirement benefit cost $ 7.4 $ 8.4 The discount rate used in determining the APBO was 8.5% in fiscal 1995 and 1994. The assumed health care cost trend rate used for measuring the APBO was divided into three categories: 1995 1994 Pre-65 participants 11.6% 12.3% Post-65 participants 8.4% 8.7% Medicare 8.4% 7.8% All three rates were assumed to decline to 5.5% over 10 and 11 years in fiscal 1995 and 1994, respectively. If the health care cost trend rate was increased 1%, the APBO, as of June 30, 1995, would have increased 11%. The effect of this change on the aggregate of service and interest cost for fiscal 1995 would be an increase of 10%. As a result of the Company's decision to sell its Applied Science Operation, Physical Electronics Division and Material Sciences segment, PE recognized a $2.9 million gain related to the curtailment of its postretirement benefit obligation during fiscal 1994. Foreign employees are primarily covered under government sponsored programs and therefore, the impact of SFAS No. 106 was not material. No significant expense for foreign retiree medical benefits was incurred by the Company in any of the years presented. Postemployment Benefits. The Company provides certain postemployment benefits to eligible employees. These benefits generally include severance, disability and medical-related costs paid after employment but before retirement. The Company also adopted, effective as of the beginning of fiscal 1993, SFAS No. 112, "Employers' Accounting for Postemployment Benefits." This statement requires an accrual method of accounting for the related costs. Prior to the adoption of this statement, the Company recognized such costs at the time the benefits were paid. The adoption of the statement in fiscal 1993 resulted in a one-time after- tax charge to net income of $14.2 million in the first quarter of the year, representing the cumulative effect on prior years of adopting the new standard. Note 6 Geographic Area Information The Company operates in one industry segment: the development, manufacture, marketing, sales and service of analytical instrument systems. Included in this industry segment are bioresearch instrument systems, consisting of instruments and associated consumable products for life science research and related applications, instrument systems for determining the composition and molecular structure of chemical substances (both organic and inorganic), data handling devices, and real time, process analysis systems to monitor process quality and environmental purity. In addition, through a joint venture, the Company is engaged in the manufacture and sale of mass spectrometry instrument systems. Revenues between geographic areas are primarily comprised of the sale of instruments and reagents by the Company's manufacturing units. The sale amounts reflect the rules and regulations of the respective governing tax authorities. Third party export net revenues and operating profits are reported in the region of destination. Operating income is determined by deducting from net revenues the related costs and operating expenses attributable to the region. R&D expenses are reflected in the area where the activity was performed. Identifiable assets include all assets directly identified with those geographic areas. Corporate assets consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments, certain other current and long-term assets and certain investments in affiliated companies. Export net revenues for the fiscal years ended June 30, 1995, 1994 and 1993 were $45.4 million, $63.8 million and $76.1 million, respectively. -38-

Note 7 Shareholders' Equity Treasury Stock. Common stock purchases were made in support of the Company's various stock plans and as part of a share repurchase authorization. The Company has no specific share repurchase targets but expects to make periodic open market purchases from time to time. For the years ended June 30, 1995, 1994 and 1993, the Company purchased .5 million, .8 million and .4 million shares, respectively, to support its various stock plans. The remaining number of shares available under the purchase authorization at June 30, 1995 is 4.2 million. Shareholders' Protection Rights Plan. PE has adopted a Shareholders' Protection Rights Plan designed to protect shareholders against abusive takeover tactics by declaring a dividend of one right on each outstanding share of common stock. Each right entitles shareholders to buy one one-hundredth of a newly issued share of participating preferred stock having economic and voting terms similar to those of one share of common stock at an exercise price of $90.00, subject to adjustment. The rights will be exercisable only if a person or a group: (a) acquires 20% or more of the Company's shares or (b) commences a tender offer that will result in such person or group owning 20% or more of the Company's shares. Before that time, the rights trade with the common stock, but thereafter they become separately tradeable. Upon exercise, after a person or a group acquires 20% or more of the Company's shares, each right (other than rights held by the acquiring person) will entitle the shareholder to purchase a number of shares of preferred stock of the Company having a market value of two times the exercise price. If PE is acquired in a merger or other business combination, each right will entitle the shareholder to purchase at the then exercise price a number of shares of common stock of the acquiring company having a market value of two times such exercise price. If any person or group acquires between 20% and 50% of PE's shares, the Company's Board of Directors may, at its option, exchange one share of the Company's common stock for each right. The rights are redeemable at PE's option at one cent per right prior to a person or group becoming an acquiring person. Common Stock. In fiscal 1994, the Company's shareholders approved an increase in the number of authorized shares of Common Stock from 60 million to 90 million. Note 8 Stock Plans Stock Option Plans. Under PE's stock option plans, officers and other key employees may be granted options, each of which allows for the purchase of common stock at a price of not less than 100% of fair market value at the date of grant. In connection with the ABI merger in fiscal 1993, all unexpired and unexercised stock options under ABI's stock option plans were converted to options to acquire .678 of a share of the Company's common stock, and the obligations with respect to such options have been assumed by PE. Each ABI option assumed by PE is subject to the same terms and conditions which existed prior to the merger. Transactions relating to the stock option plans of the Company are summarized below. The table reflects the pooled activity of PE and ABI options for fiscal 1993 as if all ABI options were granted, exercised, or cancelled at .678 of a PE share. Number of Options Outstanding at July 31, 1992 4,014,001 Granted at $20.47-$37.75 per share 1,387,417 Exercised at $9.96-$35.88 per share 841,752 Cancelled 199,523 Outstanding at June 30, 1993 4,360,143 Granted at $30.25-$37.75 per share 970,150 Exercised at $10.70-$35.32 per share 763,085 Cancelled 253,458 Outstanding at June 30, 1994 4,313,750 Granted at $28.81-$31.25 per share 543,300 Exercised at $10.70-$35.13 per share 424,017 Cancelled 315,742 Outstanding at June 30, 1995 4,117,291 Options exercisable at June 30, 1995 3,012,476 At June 30, 1995, .5 million shares remained available for option grant. Employee Stock Purchase Plan. The Employee Stock Purchase Plan offers domestic employees the right to purchase, over a two year period, shares of common stock on an annual offering date. The purchase price is equal to the lower of 85% of the average market price of the common stock on the offering date or 85% of the average market price of the common stock on the last day of the 24 month purchase period. Common stock issued under the Employee Stock Purchase Plans, assuming ABI stock was issued at .678 of a PE share prior to the merger, was approximately .1 million shares in fiscal 1995, 1994 and 1993, respectively. At June 30, 1995, .8 million shares are reserved for issuance. Director Stock Purchase and Deferred Compensation Plan. In fiscal 1993, PE adopted the Director Stock Purchase and Deferred Compensation Plan which requires non-employee directors of the Company to apply at least 50% of their annual retainer to the purchase of common stock. The purchase price is the fair market value on the first calendar day of the third month of each fiscal quarter. At June 30, 1995, approximately .1 million shares were available for issuance. -40-

Restricted Stock. As part of PE's 1993 Stock Incentive Plan, a total of 100,000 shares of common stock may be granted to key employees pursuant to restricted stock awards. Such stock will not vest until certain continuous employment restrictions and specified performance goals are achieved. During fiscal 1995, 70,000 shares of restricted stock were granted to key employees. In fiscal 1994 and 1993, no shares were granted. Note 9 Additional Information The following table provides the major components of selected accounts of the Consolidated Statements of Financial Position: (Dollar amounts in millions) At June 30, 1995 1994 Other long-term assets Investments in affiliated companies $ 11.9 $ 34.0 Assets held for sale 39.1 45.0 Other 85.0 85.5 Total other long-term assets $136.0 $164.5 Other accrued expenses Deferred service contract revenues $ 42.5 $ 37.3 Accrued pension liabilities 21.1 24.7 Restructuring provision 18.5 Other 78.2 79.6 Total other accrued expenses $160.3 $141.6 Other long-term liabilities Accrued pension liabilities $ 72.1 $ 60.5 Accrued postretirement benefits 91.3 89.9 Other 16.8 31.1 Total other long-term liabilities $180.2 $181.5 The following table provides the significant components of other income (expense), net in the Consolidated Statement of Operations for the year ended June 30, 1993. The components of other income (expense), net for fiscal years 1995 and 1994 were not material. (Dollar amounts in millions) 1993 Gain on sale of 7% promissory note $8.5 Reduction in carrying value of certain unoccupied properties (5.0) Other, net 2.6 Total other income, net $6.1 In the fourth quarter of fiscal 1993, the Company sold a 7% promissory note which was received from the sale of a joint venture in fiscal 1992. The transaction resulted in a before-tax gain of $8.5 million. In addition, during fiscal 1993, because of the continued softness in the commercial real estate market, the Company reduced the carrying value of certain unoccupied properties by $5.0 million. Note 10 Provision for Restructured Operations During the fourth quarter of fiscal 1995, the Company recorded a $23.0 million before-tax charge for restructuring actions. The restructuring plan focuses primarily on reducing the analytical instruments business infrastructure. The charge includes $20.7 million of severance and benefit costs for workforce reductions and $2.3 million of closure and facility consolidation expenses. All costs will result in cash outlays and these actions are expected to be substantially completed by December 31, 1995. The workforce reductions total 227 employees. These actions will be accomplished through involuntary reductions worldwide as well as a voluntary retirement incentive plan in the U.S. The workforce reductions will affect all geographic areas of operation and all disciplines ranging from production labor to executive management. This includes product departments, manufacturing, engineering, sales, service and support as well as corporate administrative staff. The voluntary retirement incentive plan was accepted by 91 employees, which is included in the total, at a cost of $6.8 million. Approximately 43 of these positions will have to be replaced, but at a lower overall cost basis. All costs associated with hiring or training of new employees were excluded from the charge and will be recognized in the period incurred. The planned closure and facility consolidation costs total $2.3 million. These actions include the shutdown of the Company's Puerto Rico manufacturing facility, consolidation of sales offices in the Far East and consolidation of administrative departments in the U.S. The closure of operations in Puerto Rico, expected to be completed within six months, includes severance costs for 46 employees, lease termination payments and other related costs. The Far East costs include lease penalties and restoration of vacated offices. Any costs associated with relocation of existing employees and moving expenses for inventory and equipment have been excluded from the charge and will be recognized in the period incurred. As of June 30, 1995, the Company made severance and benefit payments of $3.6 million to 55 employees separated under the aforementioned plan and payments of $.9 million were made for closure and facility consolidation costs. The balance of the cost to complete the restructuring plan was $18.5 million at June 30, 1995. Benefits from this restructuring program will be offset in part by the costs of hiring and training of new employees, moving and relocation. The before-tax savings from these actions approximates $20 million in costs and cash flow for fiscal 1996 and $25 million in succeeding years. -41-

Note 11 Commitments and Contingencies Future minimum payments at June 30, 1995 under noncancellable operating leases for real estate and equipment were as follows: (Dollar amounts in millions) 1996 $26.5 1997 21.5 1998 17.3 1999 11.9 2000 8.9 2001 and thereafter 4.1 Total $90.2 Rental expense was $32.5 million in fiscal 1995, $32.9 million in fiscal 1994 and $31.9 million in fiscal 1993. The Company has been named as a defendant in several legal actions arising from the conduct of its normal business activities. Although the amount of any liability that might arise with respect to any of these matters cannot be accurately predicted, the resulting liability, if any, will not in the opinion of management have a material adverse effect on the financial statements of the Company. Note 12 Financial Instruments Derivatives. The Company manages exposure to fluctuations in foreign exchange rates by creating offsetting positions through the use of derivative financial instruments, primarily forward or purchased option foreign exchange contracts. The Company does not use derivative financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes, nor is the Company a party to leveraged derivatives. Foreign exchange contracts are accounted for as hedges of net investments, firm commitments, and foreign currency transactions. Gains and losses on hedges of net investments are reported as equity adjustments from translation on the balance sheet. The gains and losses on hedges of firm commitments are deferred and included in the basis of the transaction underlying the commitment. Gains and losses on transaction hedges are recognized in income and offset the foreign exchange gains and losses on the related transaction. The costs associated with entering into these contracts are amortized over the life of the contract. Realized and deferred gains and losses on hedge contracts were not material for the years presented. Concentrations of Credit Risk. The forward contracts and options used by the Company in managing its foreign currency positions contain an element of risk that the counterparties may be unable to meet the terms of the agreements. However, the Company minimizes such risk exposure by limiting the counterparties to highly rated major domestic or international financial institutions. Management does not expect to record any losses as a result of counterparty default. The Company does not require and is not required to place collateral for these financial instruments. Fair Value. The following methods are used in estimating the fair value of significant financial instruments held or owed by the Company. Cash and short-term investments approximate their carrying amount due to the short duration of these instruments. Fair values of marketable securities beyond one year, minority equity investments and notes receivable are estimated based on quoted market prices, if available, or quoted market prices of financial instruments with similar characteristics. The fair value of debt is based on the current rates offered to the Company for debt of similar remaining maturities. Fiscal year end foreign currency exchange rates are used to estimate the fair value of foreign currency contracts. The following table presents the carrying amounts and estimated fair values of the Company's financial instruments at June 30, 1995 and 1994: Carrying Fair Carrying Fair Amount Value Amount Value (Dollar amounts in millions) 1995 1994 Cash and short-term investments $80.0 $80.0 $25.0 $25.0 Marketable securities maturing beyond one year 7.0 7.0 Minority equity investments 5.1 4.7 27.3 30.0 Notes receivable 15.5 15.9 13.4 13.7 Short-term debt 54.8 54.8 83.6 83.6 Long-term debt 34.1 35.1 34.3 34.3 Foreign currency contracts 70.1 73.8 89.2 90.8 -42-

STATEMENT OF FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY To the Shareholders of The Perkin-Elmer Corporation The Company is responsible for the preparation and integrity of the accompanying consolidated financial statements. The statements have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles appropriate in the circumstances and include amounts based upon management's best estimates and judgments. These accounting principles have been consistently applied. The financial statements are believed to reflect, in all material respects, the substance of events and transactions that should be included. Financial information presented elsewhere in this annual report is consistent with that in the financial statements. In meeting its responsibility for preparing reliable financial statements, the Company depends on its system of internal accounting controls. This system is designed to provide reasonable assurance assets are safeguarded and transactions are executed in accordance with the appropriate corporate authorization and recorded properly to permit the preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The Company believes its accounting controls provide reasonable assurance that errors or irregularities that could be material to the financial statements are prevented or would be detected within a timely period by employees in the normal course of performing their assigned functions. The concept of reasonable assurance is based on the recognition that judgments are required to assess and balance the costs and expected benefits of a system of internal accounting controls. Written internal accounting controls and other operating policies and procedures supporting this system are communicated throughout the Company. Adherence to these policies and procedures is reviewed through a coordinated audit effort of the Company's internal audit staff and independent accountants. The independent accountants review and test the system of internal accounting controls to the extent they consider necessary to support their opinion on the consolidated financial statements of the Company. Their report is the result of an independent and objective review of management's discharge of its responsibilities relating to the fairness of reported operating results and financial condition. The Company's Board of Directors has an Audit Committee composed solely of outside directors. The committee meets periodically with the Company's independent accountants, management and internal auditors to review matters relating to the quality of financial reporting and internal accounting controls, the nature and extent of internal and external audit plans and results, and certain other matters. The independent accountants, whose appointment is recommended by the Audit Committee to the Board of Directors, have full and free access to this committee. A statement of business ethics policy is communicated to all Company employees. The Company monitors compliance with this policy to help assure operations are conducted in a responsible and professional manner with a commitment to the highest standard of business conduct.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT ACCOUNTANTS To the Shareholders and Board of Directors of The Perkin-Elmer Corporation In our opinion, the accompanying consolidated statements of financial position and the related consolidated statements of operations, of shareholders' equity and of cash flows present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of The Perkin-Elmer Corporation and its subsidiaries at June 30, 1995 and 1994, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the three fiscal years in the period ended June 30, 1995, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management; our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits of these statements in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards which require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, and evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for the opinion expressed above. As discussed in Note 4 and Note 5 to the financial statements, the Company changed its method of accounting for income taxes, postretirement benefits and postemployment benefits in fiscal 1993.
