Bruker Forms Chemical Analysis Div.

Apr 2010
FREMONT, Calif., April 8, 2010 — Bruker Corp., a provider of high-performance scientific instruments and solutions for molecular and materials research, announced it has created a Chemical Analysis Division within its Bruker Daltonics subsidiary.

The new division will be managed by Collin D’Silva as division president, and it will be headquartered in Fremont.

Additionally, Bruker and Agilent Technologies Inc. entered into a definitive asset purchase agreement, pursuant to which the former company will acquire certain product lines of Varian Inc., which Agilent has committed to divest in connection with obtaining regulatory approval for Agilent’s previously announced acquisition of Varian.

Varian’s product lines to be acquired will become part of the newly formed Bruker division, and it will include ICP-MS systems, laboratory gas chromatography (GC) instruments and GC-triple-quadrupole mass spectrometers.

D’Silva has served as a director at Bruker since 2000. For him to assume his new responsibilities, he has stepped down from Bruker’s audit committee and has resigned from the board of directors.

As a result, the Bruker board and audit committee temporarily are not in compliance with all NASDAQ listing requirements. NASDAQ has been notified accordingly, and Bruker intends to regain compliance within the applicable 180-day cure period.
