Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders, Financial Statements


Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

(a) On August 21, 2013, Life Technologies Corporation (the "Company") held its Special Meeting of Stockholders (the "Special Meeting"). The Company filed its Definitive Proxy Statement for the proposals voted upon at the Special Meeting with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 22, 2013.

(b) As of July 18, 2013, the record date for the Special Meeting, 172,659,776 shares of the Company's common stock were issued and outstanding. A quorum of 127,305,738 shares of common stock were present or represented at the Special Meeting. The number of votes cast for, against or withheld, as well as abstentions and broker non-votes, if applicable, with respect to each proposal is set out below:

1. Proposal to adopt the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of April 14, 2013 (the "Merger Agreement"), by and among the Company, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., and Polpis Merger Sub Co. The proposal to adopt the Merger Agreement received the affirmative vote of approximately 73% of the outstanding shares of common stock entitled to vote at the Special Meeting.

For Against Abstain Broker Non-Votes 125,654,014 225,981 1,400,366 25,377

2. Non-binding, advisory proposal to approve the compensation that may be paid or become payable to the Company's named executive officers in connection with, or following, the consummation of the merger. The non-binding, advisory proposal to approve the compensation that may be paid or become payable to the Company's named executive officers received the affirmative vote of approximately 67% of the votes cast.

For Against Abstain Broker Non-Votes 85,686,478 37,233,837 4,360,047 25,376

Because there were sufficient votes from the Company's stockholders to adopt the Merger Agreement, the vote on the proposal to approve the adjournment of the special meeting, if necessary or appropriate, to solicit additional proxies was not called.
