Corporate Report 2004
 
introduction

To our shareholders



After three tough years in which Agilent survived the high-tech downturn and fundamentally transformed how we operate, 2004 was a successful and gratifying turnaround year for the company. We achieved consistently strong profitability through the year and generated more than $700 million in cash, completed the sweeping operational transformation launched in 2000, maintained the R&D investments that fueled an outstanding year for new products, and improved our competitive position by entering new markets and exiting others. Agilent’s 28,000 people continued to work with great skill, energy and commitment in a difficult environment to deliver these results. We began 2005 a much stronger company than we were a year ago, and are excited by our opportunities to build on our accomplishments.
