Mr. Thomas Loewald

Thermo Fisher Scientific
(NYSE: TMO) Thank you for joining us today, Tom. Please give us an overview of your background and your role at Thermo.

Thomas Loewald: I am President of Environmental Instruments for Thermo Fisher Scientific, which includes analytical instrumentation and services focused on the areas of air quality monitoring, radiation safety and water analysis. We consider our mission to be that of helping our customers make the world healthier, cleaner and safer by bringing advanced analytical technologies from laboratory applications to the environmental industry.

Prior to joining Thermo Fisher Scientific, I held a number of different management positions at General Electric over a nine-year time period. I received my B.A. in Economics from Middlebury College, and an M.B.A. from the Amos Tuck School of Business Administration. Thermo Electron recently completed its $10.6 billion acquisition of Fisher Scientific International Inc. May we have a brief overview of the capabilities of the new entity.

Thomas Loewald: By merging and becoming Thermo Fisher Scientific, we have become the world leader in serving science, with expected 2007 revenue of over $9 billion and 30,000 employees worldwide. We enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer by providing analytical instruments, equipment, reagents and consumables, software and services for research, analysis, discovery and diagnostics. We have combined Thermo Electron’s leading analytical technologies with world-class consumables from Fisher Scientific, and have become a single-source supplier to customers serving them through the world’s largest direct sales force and unparalleled e-commerce capabilities.
