Explanation of Responses:
1. Under the terms of the Fortive 2016 Stock Incentive Plan, on the last trading day on which all or a portion of an outstanding option may be exercised, if as of the close of trading on such day the then closing market price of a share of Common Stock exceeds the per share exercise price of such option by at least $.01 (an "Auto-Exercise Eligible Option"), the holder of such option will be deemed to have automatically exercised ("Auto Exercise") such Auto-Exercise Eligible Option as of the close of trading, with the Registrant reducing the number of shares of common stock issued to the holder of such option in an amount necessary to satisfy (1) the exercise price obligation for the Auto-Exercise Eligible Option, and (2) the tax withholding requirements arising upon the Auto Exercise, in each case based on the market price as of the close of trading on the date of Auto Exercise. This transaction is being reported to disclose the Auto Exercise of the corresponding options.
2. Based on plan statement dated as of April 30, 2024.
3. Prior to the separation of the Issuer from Danaher Corporation ("Danaher") on July 2, 2016 (the "Separation"), one-half of the stock options issued by Danaher on May 15, 2014 ("2014 Danaher Options") to the Reporting Person became exercisable on the fourth and fifth anniversary of the grant date. In connection with the Separation, the 2014 Danaher Options that remained outstanding as of July 2, 2016 were converted into stock options to purchase 86,865 shares of the Issuer's common stock with identical vesting schedule. In addition, the total number of stock options and the exercise price reflect an anti-dilution adjustment applied as a result of the spin-off of Vontier Corporation from the Issuer on October 9, 2020.
