<PAGE> 3 PROXY STATEMENT This Proxy Statement has been prepared to provide the stockholders of PerkinElmer, Inc. with information pertaining to the matters to be voted on at the PerkinElmer, Inc., Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on Tuesday, April 25, 2000 at 10:30 a.m., at the Sheraton Needham Hotel, 100 Cabot Street, Needham, Massachusetts, and at any adjournment of that Meeting. The date of this Proxy Statement is March 27, 2000, the approximate date on which the Proxy Statement and form of Proxy were first sent or given to stockholders. PerkinElmer, Inc. is sometimes referred to in this Proxy Statement as "PerkinElmer" or the "Company." PerkinElmer, Inc. Common Stock, $1 par value per share (the only outstanding PerkinElmer security with voting rights), is referred to as the "Common Stock." THIS PROXY IS SOLICITED ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF PERKINELMER. You are requested to sign and return your proxy card promptly. You have the right to revoke your proxy and change your vote at any time prior to its exercise at the Meeting by filing written notice with the Clerk of PerkinElmer or by signing and delivering a new proxy card bearing a later date. IT IS IMPORTANT TO SIGN AND RETURN YOUR PROXY CARD. It helps to establish a quorum so that the Meeting may be held, and permits your votes to be cast in accordance with your directions. The expenses connected with soliciting proxies will be borne by PerkinElmer. The Company expects to pay brokers, nominees, fiduciaries, and other custodians their reasonable expenses for forwarding proxy materials and annual reports to principals and obtaining their voting instructions. The Company has engaged Georgeson Shareholder Communications, Inc. of New York City, to assist in soliciting proxies from brokers, nominees, fiduciaries, and custodians and has agreed to pay Georgeson Shareholder Communications, Inc. $7,500 and out-of-pocket expenses for such efforts. In addition to the use of the mails, certain Directors, officers, and employees may solicit proxies in person or by use of communications media. The stock transfer books of PerkinElmer will not be closed; however, the Board of Directors has fixed the close of business on February 25, 2000, as the record date for determining the stockholders entitled to receive notice of and to vote their shares at the Annual Meeting. On the record date, there were 48,656,003 shares of Common Stock outstanding and entitled to vote. Each share of Common Stock carries the right to cast one vote, with no cumulative voting. The presence at the Annual Meeting, in person or by proxy, of a majority of the shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding on the record date constitutes a quorum. The proposal being presented for stockholder action is set forth on your proxy card and discussed in detail on the following pages. Shares represented by proxy will be voted at the Annual Meeting in accordance with your instructions indicated on the proxy card. The proposal is to elect ten Directors for terms of one year each. You may grant or withhold authority to vote your shares to elect the ten nominees by marking the appropriate box on the proxy card. Should you desire to withhold authority to vote for one or more nominees, please identify the exceptions in the appropriate space provided on the proxy card. Your shares will be voted as you indicate. IF YOU SIGN AND RETURN YOUR PROXY CARD AND MAKE NO OTHER INDICATION ON THE PROXY CARD, YOUR SHARES WILL BE VOTED "FOR" ELECTING THE NOMINEES NAMED IN THIS PROXY STATEMENT. Management does not anticipate a vote on any other proposal at the Annual Meeting. If, however, another proposal is properly brought before the Meeting, your shares will be voted in accordance with the discretion of the named proxies. PerkinElmer's Annual Report to Stockholders for 1999 has been mailed to its stockholders or is enclosed herewith. It is not part of this Proxy Statement or incorporated herein by reference.
<PAGE> 4 VOTES REQUIRED The affirmative vote of the holders of a plurality of the votes cast at the Meeting is required for the election of each of the ten Directors. A majority in interest of all common stock issued, outstanding and entitled to vote for the election of directors constitutes a quorum. Shares of Common Stock represented by executed proxies received by the Company will be counted for purposes of establishing a quorum at the Meeting, regardless of how or whether such shares are voted on any specific proposal. Shares that abstain from voting as to a particular matter, and shares held by nominee record holders who did not receive specific instructions from the beneficial owners of such shares and thus are not voted with respect to a particular matter, will not be counted as shares voting on such matter. Accordingly, abstentions and nominee non-votes will have no effect on the voting on the proposal to elect Directors as described in this Proxy Statement.
ITEM NO. 1 ELECTION OF DIRECTORS The Articles of Organization and By-Laws of PerkinElmer provide that the stockholders or the Board of Directors shall fix the number of Directors at not fewer than three nor more than thirteen. At the Annual Meeting held on April 27, 1999, the stockholders fixed the number of directors at ten (10). The Articles of Organization and By-Laws provide that at each Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the successors of the Directors whose terms expire in that year shall be elected for a one-year term. There are currently ten Directors of the Company, all of whose terms expire at this year's Annual Meeting. The Board of Directors has nominated the following persons for election as Directors for one-year terms expiring at the Annual Meeting in 2001. All of these nominees are currently Directors of the Company.

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS A VOTE "FOR" ELECTING THE TEN NOMINEES NAMED ABOVE FOR TERMS OF ONE YEAR EACH. It is intended that the shares represented by proxies will be voted for the election of the ten nominees (unless one or more of the nominees is unwilling or unable to serve) for terms of one year each, unless a contrary instruction is indicated on the proxy cards. The Board of Directors knows of no reason why any nominee should be unable or unwilling to serve, but if such should be the case, the persons named as proxies on the proxy cards may vote for the election of a substitute. In no event will shares represented by proxies be voted for more than ten nominees. To apprise you of the qualifications of the Directors, we are including information concerning the nominees.

<PAGE> 8 INFORMATION RELATIVE TO THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND CERTAIN OF ITS COMMITTEES A formal Audit Committee of the Board of Directors was created in 1971. The current Committee, which met seven times in 1999, is composed of five Directors -- Messrs. Lopardo (Chair), Hansen, Ruettgers and Schmergel and Ms. Erickson. The responsibilities of the Audit Committee are to (1) recommend the particular persons or firm to be employed by the Company as its independent auditor; (2) consult with the persons so chosen to be the independent auditor with regard to the plan of audit; (3) review, in consultation with the independent auditor, its report of audit or proposed report of audit, and the accompanying management letter, if any; and (4) consult periodically with the independent auditor with regard to the adequacy of internal controls and, if the Committee so chooses, to consult with the Chief Financial Officer and the Vice President, Control and Treasury and other officers and employees as the Committee may deem appropriate. The Compensation and Stock Option Committee of the Board of Directors, which met four times in 1999, is composed of four Directors -- Messrs. Tod (Chair) and Lopardo and Ms. Marshall and Ms. Erickson. The Committee reviews and approves the salaries and incentive compensation of the Chairman of the Board, the Chief Executive Officer, the President, and the Senior Vice Presidents. The Committee also reviews and approves the management incentive plans of the Company and its subsidiaries, administers the stock option plans adopted by the Company, and reviews and approves such other employment and compensation matters as it deems necessary and proper. The Corporate Governance Committee of the Board of Directors, which met three times in 1999, is composed of five Directors -- Messrs. Hansen (Chair), Keane, Summe and Thompson and Ms. Erickson. The Committee examines and defines the Board of Directors' role in corporate governance, formulates policy to address shareholder concerns, and formulates guidance, for management action, to deal with evolving social issues, both internal and external to the organization. A Nominating Committee of the Board of Directors was created in 1991. The current Committee, which met two times in 1999, is composed of five Directors -- Messrs. Ruettgers (Chair), Hansen, Keane, Lopardo and Tod. The Committee establishes criteria for nomination or renomination of persons to serve as Directors, develops procedures for the nomination or renomination process, and identifies and recommends candidates for nomination to the Board of Directors. Any stockholder desiring to submit a candidate for consideration by the Nominating Committee should send sufficient biographical data and background information concerning the candidate to enable a proper judgment as to the candidate's qualifications, together with any other relevant information, to: Chairman of the Nominating Committee, c/o PerkinElmer, Inc., 45 William Street, Wellesley, MA 02481. A Benefit Plans Investment Committee of the Board of Directors was created in October 1991. The present Committee, which met once in 1999, is composed of four Directors -- Ms. Marshall (Chair) and Messrs. Keane, Schmergel and Thompson. The Committee reviews the investment of funds held in the Company's employee benefit plans. The Board of Directors also has an Executive Committee, which did not meet in 1999, and is composed of three Directors -- Messrs. Summe (Chair), Hansen and Tod. The Committee, which acts as needed during intervals between Board meetings, has been delegated all the powers of the Board except those powers which by law, the Articles of Organization or the By-Laws of the Company, the Board of Directors is prohibited from delegating. With the exception of the Executive Committee and the Corporate Governance Committee, all Committees of the Board of Directors are comprised of non-employee Directors. 6
<PAGE> 9 MEETINGS The Board of Directors met nine times in 1999. All Directors attended at least 75 percent of the aggregate number of meetings of the Board of Directors and the committees of the Board on which they respectively served. DIRECTOR COMPENSATION Directors who are employees of the Company receive no additional compensation for their services as Directors. Directors who are not employees of the Company are paid an annual retainer fee of $12,000, plus $1,000 for each meeting of the Board they attend. Additionally, the Chairs of the Audit, Compensation and Stock Option, Corporate Governance, Nominating, and Benefit Plans Investment Committees receive $4,000 per year and the other non-employee members of these Committees receive $3,000 per year. In addition, all non-employee members of these Committees receive $1,000 for each Committee meeting they attend unless the Committee meeting is held on the same day as a Board of Directors' meeting, in which case the Committee member receives $500. Each year the non-employee Directors receive 800 shares of Common Stock (with a pro-rated number of shares issued to Directors who served for only a portion of the year). Shares are issued in January of each year to all Directors serving at that time. In addition, the Board approved in 1999 an annual stock option grant to non-employee Directors valued at $24,000 using the Black-Scholes valuation Model. The Lead Director (Mr. Tod) also receives an additional stock option grant valued at $16,000. Options vest in three equal installments over a 3-year period and have a 7-year exercise term. The Board also voted in 1999 to permit participation by Directors to participate in the Company's 1998 Deferred Compensation Program. Directors may defer compensation in the form of fees and grants of common stock. During 1999, the Board voted to end the PerkinElmer Directors Charitable Contribution Program for new members of the Board. Under this program the Company contributed upon death of an eligible Director a total of $1,000,000 to one or more qualifying charitable organizations named by the Director. The program was funded through a life insurance policy on each eligible Director with the life insurance proceeds payable to PerkinElmer. All active Directors were given the option to remain in the program or to exchange their participation in the program for a one-time grant of options to purchase 10,000 shares of common stock. These options were granted with the same vesting schedule as the vesting under the Directors Charitable Program (completion of five years of service on the Board), and have a 10-year exercise term. All Directors with the exception of Mr. Thompson elected to exchange participation in the Charitable Contribution Program for the option grant. The Board also voted in 1999 to establish stock ownership guidelines for Directors. Directors will be required to own PerkinElmer stock in the amount of five times the annual Directors retainer fee. The Stock Ownership requirement is expected to be met within two years of the Director's appointment to the Board. 7

<PAGE> 12 BOARD COMPENSATION COMMITTEE REPORT ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION The Compensation and Stock Option Committee (the "Committee") of the Board of Directors is composed of four independent outside Directors. The Committee's report on executive compensation follows. OVERALL PHILOSOPHY The Company's overall executive compensation philosophy is based on the premise that compensation should be aligned with and support the Company's business strategy and long-term initiatives, enhance shareholder value and be competitive with that offered by comparable companies. Under the guidance of the Committee, compensation policies have been designed to link executive compensation to the attainment of the Company's specific goals. These policies also allow the Company to attract and retain senior executives critical to the long-term success of a diverse high technology organization by providing a competitive compensation package and recognizing and rewarding individual contributions. The key elements of the Company's executive compensation are base salary, annual incentive awards, and stock options. In order to provide the Company with more flexibility with respect to structuring stock incentive and cash performance award programs for the management team, in 1999 stockholders approved the PerkinElmer, Inc. 1999 Incentive Plan. This plan replaces the Company's 1992 PerkinElmer Stock Option Plan and, accordingly, no further grants will be made under the 1992 Plan. BASE SALARY Each year, the Committee reviews and establishes the base salary of the Chief Executive Officer based on the Company's performance, as measured by a combination of factors consisting principally of sales, earnings per share growth, return on equity, cash flow, return on capital, and net operating profit after tax (NOPAT). The Committee also takes into account a comparison to executive compensation in other companies as revealed by executive compensation surveys referred to below. The Committee also reviews, approves or modifies, as deemed appropriate by the Committee, a salary plan recommended by the Chief Executive Officer and the Senior Vice President of Human Resources for the corporate officer positions. This plan, developed by the Human Resources staff, is based on the performance of each such officer while taking into consideration the Company's performance as measured by the factors described above. The Company uses a nationwide Executive Compensation Survey to provide general overall compensation guidance. The survey shows market competitive information for the total compensation for selected officer positions for companies comparable in revenue size to PerkinElmer and in similar high technology sectors. Generally, the compensation levels of PerkinElmer officers are comparable with those holding similar positions within the companies included in the above-mentioned survey. In accordance with the Company's policy to pay competitive salaries, the base salaries of most officers were increased in 1999. Mr. Summe's salary was increased in February 1999 from $475,000 a year to $625,000 a year recognizing his promotion from the position of Chief Operating Officer to Chief Executive Officer. INCENTIVE COMPENSATION In 1999 PerkinElmer revised its annual incentive plan to provide more flexibility to focus on specific performance elements to drive improved profitability and operating performance in the business units. The revised plan, called the Performance Incentive Plan (PIP), provides incentive compensation to certain key employees. Mr. Summe and the other executive officers named in the Summary Compensation Table are participants in the PIP. Although the PIP is the primary source of incentives for officers, the Committee may award additional incentives to selected officers outside of the PIP in circumstances in which the Committee determines that an additional incentive established on a different basis is appropriate. In 1999 the PIP measured Mr. Summe and other senior staff officers (e.g. Finance, Human Resources, Legal) on the basis of growth in earnings per share (EPS) and Economic Value Added (EVA(R)). Officers and 10
<PAGE> 13 other key employees in the strategic business units (SBU's) were measured on SBU net operating profit after tax (NOPAT) and EVA(R). For purposes of the PIP, stockholder value is created when the Company earns a return in excess of the cost of the capital employed. PerkinElmer calculates its EVA(R) by taking NOPAT and subtracting a capital charge. The capital charge is the result of the capital employed by the Company multiplied by the Company's weighted average cost of capital. Each PIP participant is assigned a target incentive, expressed as a percentage of base salary ranging between 10% and 80%. The target percentage represents the amount of the incentive award if PIP performance targets are met. The PIP targets are generally based on the performance of the participant's SBU or Strategic Business Enterprise (SBE). Performance targets for certain officers and other corporate participants are based on consolidated performance. For SBU/SBE managers and participants, performance targets are based on SBU/SBE consolidated performance. The actual incentive award is determined by multiplying the target incentive by a formula performance factor based upon actual PIP performance compared to the target performance. In 1999, Mr. Summe's target bonus was 80% of base salary. His target PIP was based on consolidated performance. For 1999, the actual EPS and EVA(R) showed significant improvement over 1998. As a result, he received a PIP award of $1,000,000, which represents 200% of his target incentive. In addition, the Board awarded Mr. Summe an additional bonus of $250,000 for his exceptional performance in reshaping the PerkinElmer portfolio to include a higher mix of technology oriented businesses, significantly improving the operating performance and efficiency of the business units, and improving the depth and quality of leadership in the company. STOCK OPTIONS Many studies indicate a correlation between employee stock ownership and Company performance. Under the Company's Stock Option Plans, the Committee grants stock options to the Company's senior executives following established guidelines. These guidelines are based primarily on competitive industrial practice as revealed by a long-term executive compensation survey covering a large number of public companies in a variety of industries in which the Company participates. The survey data show that the normal stock option award is a multiple of base salary. The Committee uses the Black-Scholes option pricing method as the basis for determining the value of option grants. This method takes into consideration a number of factors including the stock's volatility, dividend rate, option term, and interest rates to estimate the option's present value. Mr. Summe was granted a multi-year option grant on 450,000 shares in January 1999. This grant was subject to a six-year cliff vesting schedule, with a special provision for accelerated vesting based on meeting or exceeding significant performance goals. The accelerated vesting goals established for the grant were three consecutive years of 15% growth in EPS over 1998 or 50% growth in EPS over 1998 in two years or less (adjusting for the impact of acquisitions and divestitures). These goals were exceeded in 1999, and the options were vested. In addition, Mr. Summe was provided with an interest free loan to purchase 25,000 shares of common stock. The loan was structured with a forgiveness feature whereby the loan was to be forgiven on the same basis as the vesting of the multi-year option grant (three consecutive years of 15% growth in EPS over 1998 or 50% growth in EPS over 1998 in two years or less). These goals were exceeded in 1999 and the loan was forgiven. 11
<PAGE> 14 STOCK OWNERSHIP PROGRAM BY OFFICERS AND SBE MANAGERS The Committee has determined that in order to further align management and shareholder interests, PerkinElmer stock ownership by PerkinElmer officers and SBE managers should be significant relative to each officer's and SBE manager's base salary. The market value of PerkinElmer stock expected to be owned by the Company's officers and general managers is as follows:
<TABLE> <S> <C> CEO..................................................... 2 times base salary President and COO....................................... 1 1/2 times base salary Senior Vice Presidents.................................. 1 1/2 times base salary Other Officers.......................................... 1 times base salary SBE Managers............................................ 1/2 times base salary </TABLE>
Officers and SBE managers are expected to attain these ownership levels four years after their election or appointment to the specified officer or SBE manager position. SECTION 162(M) Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code generally limits the deductibility of public companies of annual compensation for certain officers to $1 million. Qualifying performance-based compensation will not be subject to the deduction limit if certain requirements are met. It is the general intention of the Committee to assure, where appropriate, that officer compensation will meet the Section 162(m) requirements for deductibility. However, the Committee reserves the right to use its judgment to authorize compensation payments, which may be in excess of the limit when the Committee believes such payment is appropriate, after taking into consideration changing business conditions, or the officer's performance, and is in the best interest of the stockholders. The Committee will review its policy concerning Section 162(m) on a year-by-year basis. Compensation and Stock Option Committee G. Robert Tod (Chairman) Tamara J. Erickson Nicholas A.

--------------- NOTES (1) This represents the amount of the declared awards under the Company's PIP. Mr. Summe's bonus includes two components. A $1,000,000 award was granted under the PIP and an additional $250,000 performance bonus was granted for exceptional performance as outlined in the Compensation Committee Report. (2) With the exception of Mr. Summe, perquisites and other personal benefits did not in the aggregate exceed the lesser of $50,000 or 10 percent of the total of annual salary and bonus reported in this table for any named executive officer. Perquisites for Mr. Summe include $110,849 representing the value of mortgage interest differential payments provided to Mr. Summe for his relocation to a higher cost housing region. These payments will be discontinued during 2000 and have been grossed-up for tax purposes. Mr. Summe is also provided with a car allowance of $25,000 annually. (3) Restricted Stock was granted as part of the Corporate Officer's Long Term Incentive Program. This program is intended to motivate Corporate Officers to meet aggressive performance targets. The restricted stock vested on the seventh anniversary of issuance, and vesting would accelerate on meeting or exceeding the performance targets of three consecutive years of 15% growth in Earnings Per Share (EPS) or 50% growth in EPS in two years or less (adjusted for significant acquisitions and divestitures). The Company met these targets and the restricted stock vested on January 3, 2000. (4) Mr. Summe received a multi-year stock option grant covering the years 1999 through 2001. These options, at the time of issue, vested on the sixth anniversary of issuance, and vesting accelerated based on the Company's meeting the performance targets outlined in footnote 3 (above). The Company met these targets and the options granted to Mr. Summe vested on January 3, 2000. With regard to Messrs. Friel, Engel and Rosenthal, these option grants were necessary to recruit these executives. These options, and the transition payments described in footnote 5 below, offset the value of unvested stock options and loss of bonus and other incentive opportunities and benefit plans as a result of leaving their previous employer. (5) This column includes the actuarial benefit to the named executive officer of the split-dollar life insurance policy established in 1991 and the Company's contribution to the PerkinElmer, Inc. Savings Plan. The actuarial benefit in 1999 of the split-dollar life insurance to Messrs. Summe, Friel, Engel, Rosenthal, and 15
<PAGE> 18 Castellana is $0, $0, $0, $0, and $4,511 respectively. The Company contributes $162 (per year) toward the first $500,000 of coverage under the term life portion of the split-dollar life insurance policy for each of the named executives. The named executive officer contributes an amount each year to the split-dollar life insurance policy equal to the cost of the term life insurance under the policy. The balance of the premium is paid by the Company. The Company has the right to recover the amount it paid at the death of the executive officer. The amount reported in the column for 1999 for Messrs. Summe, Friel, Engel, and Castellana includes $5,280 as the Company's contribution to the PerkinElmer, Inc. Savings Plan for each of the aforementioned executives. In the case of Messrs. Friel, Engel, and Rosenthal this column also includes transition payments of $500,000, $250,000, and $250,000 respectively, paid by the Company. These transition payments were necessary to recruit these executives. These payments, together with the option grants described in footnote 4 above, offset the value of unvested stock options and loss of bonus and other incentive opportunities and benefit plans as a result of leaving their previous employer. This column includes relocation expenses paid to Messrs. Friel and Engel of $101,914 and $96,459, respectively. In addition, this column includes a performance-based loan of $659,500 provided to Mr. Summe to purchase PerkinElmer stock. The loan carried a provision that allowed for full forgiveness based on the Company achieving the aggressive performance targets noted in footnote 3 (above). The Company met those targets in 1999 and the loan was forgiven as of January 3, 2000. The forgone interest (including gross up) totaling $45,076 is also represented in this column. PENSION PLANS EMPLOYEES RETIREMENT PLAN The Company and its subsidiaries maintain several retirement plans for the benefit of their employees, including officers. All executive officers, including the CEO and the four highest compensated executive officers, participate in the PerkinElmer, Inc. Employees Retirement Plan (the "Retirement Plan"), the principal features of which are as follows. Subject to maximum benefit limitations prescribed by law, a participant will be entitled to receive an annual payment equal to the sum of 0.85 percent of the participant's Final Average Earnings (the average of the employee's base salary for the five consecutive highest-salaried years out of the last ten years of credited service with the Company) multiplied by the number of years of credited service with the Company plus 0.75 percent of the excess of such earnings over the Social Security Tax Base multiplied by the number of years of credited service (not in excess of 35) with the Company. In no event will the accrued benefit payable at normal retirement date be less than the frozen accrued benefit as of December 31, 1993 determined in accordance with terms of the Plan at that time. The maximum benefit payable from the Retirement Plan for 1999 is $130,000. Effective January 1, 1997, the Retirement Plan was amended to provide an additional benefit for certain participants. The benefit is 1.6% of Final Average Earnings multiplied by the years of credited with the Company times a ratio equal to a service credit divided by twenty-five (25) times a ratio equal to the number of years of service with the Company since January 1, 1994 divided by the projected number of years of service with the Company from January 1, 1994 to the employee's normal retirement date. Mr. Castellana is the only named officer that participates in this benefit. All employees of the Company who participate in the Retirement Plan are required to either complete five years of service or reach their normal retirement date, whichever is first to occur, before they have a vested interest in the Retirement Plan. SUPPLEMENTAL EXECUTIVE RETIREMENT PLAN In addition to the basic benefit plan described above, the Company has created the PerkinElmer, Inc. Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan (the "Supplemental Plan"), which provides additional benefits for executive officers. Officers at the Vice President level and above, the General Counsel, the Corporate Controller, and others designated by the Board of Directors are eligible to receive benefits under the 16
<PAGE> 19 Supplemental Plan when they have reached 55 years of age and completed five years of service. In the event of a change of control as defined in the Supplemental Plan, however, participants in the Supplemental Plan are eligible to receive benefits regardless of age or years of service. If a participant dies prior to attaining age 55, but after the completion of five years of service, the participant's eligible spouse is entitled to receive a benefit in the form of 50 percent of the benefit the participant would have received upon attaining age 55 commencing on the date the participant would have attained age 55. During 1999, the Company recognized $1,815,276 as an expense and $1,037,278 as income for the Supplemental Plan and made payments to retired officers and beneficiaries in the amount of $1,294,239. While the Company is not required to fund the Supplemental Plan, effective April 6, 1989, the PerkinElmer, Inc. Non-Qualified Benefit Trust Agreement (the "Trust") was established by and between the Company and Mellon Bank, NA. As of December 31, 1999, the Trust had a balance of $9,800,831. The purpose of the Trust is to provide greater assurance of the receipt of Supplemental Plan benefits. Amounts held in the Trust are subject to the claims of the Company's general creditors in the event of the Company's insolvency or bankruptcy. The Supplemental Plan is administered by the Compensation and Stock Option Committee of the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors may amend or terminate the Supplemental Plan at any time; however, such amendment or termination shall not reduce or eliminate the benefit payments currently being made or the accrued plan benefit of any participant. The Supplemental Plan provides an annual benefit payable at retirement equal to: (a) 0.85 percent of average total compensation (as defined below) for each year of credited service, plus 0.75 percent of average total compensation in excess of the Social Security Tax Base for each year of credited service limited to 35 years, less (b), (b) 100 percent of the participant's benefit accrued at date of termination and payable at normal retirement age under any Company-funded retirement plan, plus (c), (c) The reduction, if any, to the early retirement benefit payable from any Company-funded retirement plan due to the limitations as set forth in Section 415(b) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. The benefit payable under the Supplemental Plan, however, shall in no event be less than (c) above. No actuarial adjustment is made as a result of retirement before or after age 65. Average total compensation is the average of a participant's total cash compensation for the highest-compensated consecutive five years of credited service out of his last ten years of credited service prior to age 65 (or his age at earlier termination of employment). Mr. Castellana has reached the minimum age of eligibility for retirement under the Supplemental Plan. In combination with the amounts payable under the Retirement Plan, Mr. Castellana would receive $270,920 per year, assuming he retired on the last day of 1999 and received benefits as a single life annuity. 17

--------------- NOTES (1) For the purpose of calculating the amounts shown in the above table, it is assumed that the participants in the specified ranges retired on December 31, 1999, and at age 65, and that all payments were made on a straight life annuity basis. These payments are not subject to any deduction for Social Security benefits. (2) Messrs. Summe, Friel, Castellana, Rosenthal, and Engel have respectively 2, 1, 34, 1 and 1 years of credited service under the Retirement Plan; and Supplemental Plan as of January 1, 2000. Compensation covered under the Retirement Plan is limited to $160,000 for 1999. Compensation covered under the Supplemental Plan includes the salary and Bonus (set forth in footnote (1)) shown in the Summary Compensation Table. EMPLOYMENT AND OTHER AGREEMENTS Compensation in the form of salary to Mr. Summe is paid pursuant to a three-year employment agreement with the Company dated January 8, 1998, and amended November 5, 1999, automatically renewable for successive three-year intervals, which provided for a minimum annual payment in 1999 of $625,000. Compensation in the form of salary to Messrs. Castellana, Engel, Friel and Rosenthal are paid pursuant to one-year employment agreements with the Company dated November 10, 1999, December 1, 1999, November 18, 1999 and July 23, 1999, respectively, automatically renewable for successive 1-year intervals, which provided for minimum annual payments in 1999 of $350,000, $275,000, $315,000 and $300,000, respectively. All the employment agreements with the named executive officers contain provisions that provide that in the event of a change in control of the Company, the employment term shall be extended for a period of three (3) years from the date of the change in control. Following a change in control, if the executive is terminated without "cause" or resigns for "good reason" (each as defined in the agreement), the executive is entitled to receive a severance payment equivalent to three (3) years of base salary plus bonuses and continuation of 18
<PAGE> 21 certain benefits for three (3) years from the date of termination. In addition, the executive is entitled to receive a "gross-up payment" (as defined in the agreement) for the excise tax plus any additional excise tax and income tax occasioned by the gross-up payment itself. Generally, a change in control will be deemed to have occurred in any of the following circumstances: (1) acquires 20% or more of the outstanding voting stock of the Company by any person or entity; (2) the "Continuing Directors" (as defined in the agreement) do not constitute a majority of the board; (3) the stockholders of the Company approve a business combination in which the voting securities of the Company outstanding immediately prior thereto would represent 50% or less of the voting securities of the surviving entity; or (4) a plan for the complete liquidation or an agreement for the sale or disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company is approved by the stockholders of the Company. All of the employment agreements with the named executive officers, with the exception of that with Mr. Summe, provide that upon termination initiated by the Company without cause, apart from a change in control, the executive would be entitled to continuation of his or her salary, bonus, and employee benefits for one (1) year from the date of termination. The employment agreement of Mr. Summe provides that he would be entitled to the continuation of his salary, bonus, and employee benefits for three (3) years from the date of termination.

--------------- (1) The exercise price is equal to the fair market value of the Common Stock as determined by the closing price on the New York Stock Exchange Composite Transactions on the date of grant. (2) Upon the death or total disability the optionee or his estate has 1 year to exercise vested options; upon retirement at a Company-recognized retirement age the optionee has the earlier of three (3) years or the scheduled "Last Date to Exercise" to exercise vested options; upon termination all further vesting stops and all unvested shares are cancelled; upon change in control all unvested options become 100% vested. (3) The Black-Scholes option pricing model was chosen to estimate the grant date present value of the options set forth in this table. The assumptions used at the time of grant in January of 1999 included expected market votality of 30.25%, a 5.50% risk-free rate of return, a 2.23% dividend yield, and a 7 year expected life except in the case of options granted to Mr. Summe in January 1999, on which a 10 year expected life was assumed. 19
<PAGE> 22 (4) Options granted by the Company in 1999 to Mr. Summe are performance based options that have a cliff vest of 6 years with a 10 year term. Vesting is accelerated if the following targets are met: Three (3) consecutive years of 15% growth in EPS or 50% cumulative growth in EPS in two (2) years or less over base year 1998 (adjusted for impact from acquisitions and divestitures). Upon the death or total disability the optionee or estate has 1 year to exercise vested options; upon retirement at a Company-recognized retirement age the optionee has the earlier of three (3) years or the scheduled "Last Date to Exercise" to exercise vested options; upon termination all further vesting stops and all unvested shares are cancelled; upon change in control all unvested options become 100% vested. (5) Options granted by the Company in 1999 to Mssrs. Friel, Engel, Rosenthal and Castellana are non-qualified stock options that vest equally over 3 years, rounded up to the nearest whole share, with a 7 year term. Upon the death or total disability the optionee or his estate has 1 year to exercise vested options; upon retirement at a Company-recognized retirement age the optionee has the earlier of three (3) years or the scheduled "Last Date to Exercise" to exercise vested options; upon termination all further vesting stops and all unvested shares are cancelled; upon change in control all unvested options become 100% vested.

--------------- (1) Based on the fair market value (determined by averaging the high and the low selling price on the New York Stock Exchange Composite Transactions) of the Company's Common Stock on December 31, 1999 ($41.78125), less the option exercise price. (2) The options that were granted to Messrs. Friel, Engel and Rosenthal were necessary to recruit these executives. These options, and the transition payments described in footnote 5 of the Summary Compensation Table, offset the value of unvested stock options and loss of bonus and other incentive opportunities and benefit plans as a result of leaving their previous employer. 20
CERTAIN TRANSACTIONS On March 31, 1999, a performance-based, interest free loan in the amount of $659,500.00 was made to Mr. Summe. Pursuant to the terms of the loan, the full amount was forgiven.
OTHER MATTERS The Board of Directors knows of no other business which will be presented for consideration at the Meeting other than that described above. However, if any other business should come before the Meeting, it is the intention of the persons named in the Proxy to vote, or otherwise act, in accordance with their best judgment on such matters. SELECTION OF AUDITORS On January 19, 2000, the Board of Directors selected the firm of Arthur Andersen LLP, independent public accountants, to act as the Company's auditors and to audit the books of the Company and its subsidiaries for 2000. Arthur Andersen LLP is currently performing these duties and has done so continuously since 1968. Representatives of Arthur Andersen LLP are expected to be present at the Annual Meeting, and will have an opportunity to make a statement if they so desire, and will be available to respond to appropriate questions from stockholders.
SECTION 16(A) BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP REPORTING COMPLIANCE Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires the Company's executive officers, Directors, and 10% stockholders to file initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership with the Securities and Exchange Commission and the New York Stock Exchange. The Company assists its officers and Directors in complying with these filing requirements. Executive officers, Directors, and 10% stockholders are required by SEC regulations to furnish the Company with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file. Based on a review of the copies of such forms furnished to the Company and written representations from the Company's executive officers and Directors, the Company believes that during the preceding fiscal year its executive officers, Directors, and 10% stockholders have complied with all Section 16 filing requirements, except for the following. Mr. Tod purchased 500 shares on the open market at a price per share of $31.25 on April 30, 1999, which was not referenced in a Form 4 filing until July 1999. Mr. Ruettgers purchased 5,000 shares on the open market on February 9, 1999 at a price per share of $55.37 which was not referenced on a Form 5 filing until February 2000. Mr. Ruettgers also purchased 1,000 shares on the open market on May 13, 1999 at a price per share of $31.88 which was not referenced on a Form 4 until August 1999. Messrs. Engel and Rosenthal were elected as officers on April 27, 1999 and at that time they held options to purchase 100,000 and 200,000 shares, respectively, which were not referenced on Form 3 filings until July 1999. 21
