million, or $0.28  per diluted share  in the  fourth quarter of  2011.  On  an 
adjusted basis,  excluding  certain items,  earnings  increased to  $0.56  per 
diluted share from $0.51 per diluted share  in the fourth quarter of 2011.   A

over the prior year. Net sales in 2012, excluding precious metal content, were
$2.7 billion, a 16.4% increase over 2011.  Fiscal 2012 net sales were aided by
acquisitions and improving internal growth.

Net income attributable to DENTSPLY International for 2012 was a record $314.2
million, or $2.18 per diluted share, compared to $244.5 million, or $1.70  per 
diluted share  for  2011.  On  an  adjusted basis,  excluding  certain  items, 
earnings of $2.22  per diluted  share increased  9.4% from  $2.03 per  diluted 
share in 2011.   A reconciliation  of this  non-GAAP measure  to earnings  per

Bret Wise, Chairman  and Chief Executive  Officer, stated "We  are pleased  to 
report another  record quarter  and a  strong finish  to the  year.   DENTSPLY 
continues to innovate and grow above the rate of the global dental  consumable 
market and deliver on its capital deployment plans.  In 2012, we substantially
improved our  leverage  ratios and  are  now in  a  good position  to  explore 
acquisitions, balanced  with further  debt  reduction and  return of  cash  to 
shareholders through dividends  and share  repurchases.  We  believe that  the 
global dental  market  will continue  to  grow in  2013,  and based  on  these 
assumptions and current currency rates,  we expect that our adjusted  earnings 
will improve to a range of $2.38 to $2.48 per share for the current year."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the  results reported in accordance  with US GAAP, the  Company 
provides adjusted  net  income  attributable  to  DENTSPLY  International  and 
adjusted earnings per diluted common share.  These adjusted amounts consist of
US GAAP  amounts excluding,  net of  tax (1)  acquisition related  costs,  (2) 
restructuring and  other  costs,  (3)  amortization  of  purchased  intangible 
assets, (4)  Orthodontic  business continuity  costs,  (5) income  related  to 
credit  risk  adjustments,   (6)  certain   fair  value   adjustments  at   an 
unconsolidated affiliated  company, and  (7) income  tax related  adjustments. 
 Adjusted earnings per diluted common share is calculated by dividing adjusted
net income attributable to DENTSPLY International by diluted  weighted-average 
common shares  outstanding.   Adjusted  net income  attributable  to  DENTSPLY 
International and adjusted  earnings per diluted  common share are  considered 
measures not calculated in accordance with  US GAAP, and therefore are  non-US 
GAAP measures.  These non-US  GAAP measures may  differ from other  companies. 
 Income tax related adjustments may include  the impact to adjust the  interim 
effective income tax rate to the expected annual effective tax rate.

The Company believes that the presentation of adjusted net income attributable
to DENTSPLY  International  and adjusted  earnings  per diluted  common  share 
provides  important  supplemental  information  to  management  and  investors 
seeking to  understand  the  Company's  financial  condition  and  results  of 
operations.  The non-US GAAP financial information should not be considered in
isolation from,  or as  a substitute  for, measures  of financial  performance 
prepared in accordance with US GAAP.
