Agilent Technologies 2001 Year in Review

Welcome to the online version of Agilent's 2001 Year in Review. We've organized the document into the sections you see listed in the right-hand column. The Year in Review provides an overview of Agilent's accomplishments and challenges in 2001. It describes our work to build on our leadership position in communications, electronics and life sciences; some of the products that made 2001 our strongest new-product year ever; and our priorities for fiscal 2002. Under "Shareholder Information," you can also find information on how to contact Agilent to receive further information.

This document, including the letter titled "To Our Shareholders," contains forward-looking statements (including, without limitation, information regarding projected reductions in costs, projected profitability, and projected operational transformations such as systems transformation, improvements in manufacturing, on-time delivery and procurement), that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause results of Agilent Technologies to differ materially from management's current expectations. These risks include: the ability to execute successfully through the current economic downturn; the effects of the actions we have taken in response to the recent slowdown, including implementing workforce reductions; the timely ability to adapt manufacturing capacity to weak industry orders; the ability to quickly adapt cost structures to align with decreased levels of business; the ability to manage inventory levels to adapt to the current economic slowdown and setbacks in our customers' businesses; the successful redesign and implementation of our business processes and systems; our ability to successfully introduce new products; and other risks detailed in our filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including, without limitation: our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended Oct. 31, 2000, Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended July 31, 2001, and Current Reports on Form 8-K filed June 29, 2001, Aug. 15, 2001, Nov. 13, 2001, Nov. 16, 2001, Nov. 19, 2001, Nov. 20, 2001 and Nov. 27, 2001, as well as any subsequent filings made after Jan. 2, 2002.
