·
Our life sciences and applied markets business provides application-focused solutions that include instruments and software that enable
customers to identify, quantify and analyze the physical and biological properties of substances and products, as well as enable customers
in the clinical and life sciences research areas to interrogate samples at the molecular and cellular level. Our key product categories in
life sciences and applied markets include: liquid chromatography systems and components; liquid chromatography mass spectrometry
systems; gas chromatography systems and components; gas chromatography mass spectrometry systems; inductively coupled plasma

mass spectrometry instruments; atomic absorption instruments; microwave plasma-atomic emission spectrometry instruments;
inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry instruments; raman spectroscopy; cell analysis plate based assays; flow
cytometer; real-time cell analyzer; laboratory software for sample tracking, information management and analytics; laboratory
automation and robotic systems; dissolution testing; vacuum pumps and measurement technologies. Our life sciences and applied
markets business generated net revenue of approximately $2.3 billion in fiscal 2018 and approximately $1.7 billion in the nine months
ended July 31, 2019.

·
Our diagnostics and genomics business includes the genomics, nucleic acid contract manufacturing and research and development,
pathology, companion diagnostics, reagent partnership, and biomolecular analysis businesses. Our diagnostics and genomics business is
comprised of six areas of activity providing active pharmaceutical ingredients for oligo-based therapeutics as well as solutions that

Key product categories in consumables include gas chromatography and liquid chromatography columns, sample preparation products,

custom chemistries, and a large selection of laboratory instrument supplies. Services include startup, operational, training and compliance
support, software as a service, as well as asset management and consultative services that help increase customer productivity. Custom
service and consumable bundles are tailored to meet the specific application needs of various industries and to keep instruments fully
operational and compliant with the respective industry requirements. Our Agilent CrossLab business generated net revenue of

commerce. We have a highly diversified global customer base and no one customer represented more than 10 percent of total consolidated net revenue
in fiscal 2018 and in the nine months ended July 31, 2019.

Recent Developments
On August 7, 2019, we entered into Amendment No. 1 to our Credit Agreement and Incremental Assumption Agreement (the
"Incremental Amendment"), among us, the lenders party thereto and BNP Paribas, as administrative agent to provide for a $500 million senior
unsecured term loan facility (the "term loan facility"), which will mature on August 5, 2020. As of August 31, 2019, we had $500 million of
outstanding borrowings under the term loan facility. The foregoing description of the term loan facility does not purport to be complete and is
qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Incremental Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to our Current Report on Form 8-K
filed on August 8, 2019.
On August 16, 2019, we called all of our outstanding 5.00% senior notes due 2020 (our "2020 notes") for redemption. The redemption date will
be September 17, 2019, and the redemption price will be equal to the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and
interest (exclusive of accrued and unpaid interest to the redemption date) on the 2020 notes to be redeemed discounted to the redemption date on a
semiannual basis at the applicable treasury rate (calculated in accordance with the indenture governing the 2020 notes) plus 30 basis points, plus
accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but not including, the redemption date. We intend to use the net proceeds from the offering, and cash on hand,
to fund the redemption of our 2020 notes. This prospectus supplement does not constitute a notice of redemption for our 2020 notes. The redemption
of our 2020 notes is not conditioned on the closing of this offering.

RISK FACTORS
You should carefully consider each of the following risks and all of the other information set forth in this prospectus supplement and the
accompanying prospectus, or incorporated by reference herein and therein, and the information contained in any free writing prospectus we authorize for
use in connection with this offering before making an investment in the notes. Based on the information currently known to us, we believe that the following
information, as well as the information under the heading "Risk Factors" in Part II, Item 1A. of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter
ended July 31, 2019, identifies the material risk factors affecting our company and an investment in the notes. However, additional risks and uncertainties
not currently known to us or that we currently believe to be immaterial may also adversely affect our business.
Risks Relating to the Notes
The notes will be subject to the prior claims of any secured creditors, and if a default occurs, we may not have sufficient funds to fulfill our
obligations under the notes.
The notes are unsecured obligations, ranking equally with our other senior unsecured indebtedness, which includes approximately $1.8 billion of
outstanding senior unsecured notes following this offering (after giving effect to the redemption of our 2020 notes as described under "Prospectus
Supplement Summary--Recent Developments" and "Use of Proceeds"), amounts that may be outstanding under our unsecured revolving credit facility
(the "revolving credit facility") from time to time and amounts that may be outstanding under the term loan facility from time to time. Such senior
unsecured indebtedness is effectively junior to any secured indebtedness we may incur. As of July 31, 2019, we had no unsecured outstanding borrowings
under the revolving credit facility and no secured indebtedness. Subsequent to July 31, 2019, we borrowed $200 million under our revolving credit facility.
As described above under "Prospectus Supplement Summary--Recent Developments," on August 7, 2019, we entered into a $500 million term loan
facility, the full amount of which is outstanding as of August 31, 2019. The indenture governing the notes permits us to incur secured debt under specified
circumstances. If we incur secured debt, our assets securing any such indebtedness will be subject to prior claims by our secured creditors. In the event of
the bankruptcy, insolvency, liquidation, reorganization, dissolution or other winding up of Agilent, our assets that secure debt will be available to pay
obligations on the notes only after all debt secured by those assets has been repaid in full. Holders of the notes will participate in any remaining assets
ratably with all of Agilent's other unsecured and unsubordinated creditors, including trade creditors. If there are not sufficient assets remaining to pay all
these creditors, then all or a portion of the notes then outstanding would remain unpaid.
The notes are structurally subordinated to the indebtedness and other liabilities of our subsidiaries.

The notes are our obligations exclusively and not of any of our subsidiaries. A significant portion of our operations is conducted through our
subsidiaries. Our subsidiaries are separate legal entities that have no obligation to pay any amounts due under the notes or to make any funds available
therefor, whether by dividends, loans or other payments. Except to the extent we are a creditor with recognized claims against our subsidiaries, all claims of
creditors, including trade creditors, and holders of preferred stock, if any, of our subsidiaries will have priority with respect to the assets of such
subsidiaries over our claims (and therefore the claims of our creditors, including holders of the notes). Consequently, the notes will be structurally
subordinated to all liabilities, including trade payables, of any of our subsidiaries and any subsidiaries that we may in the future acquire or establish. As of
July 31, 2019, our subsidiaries had approximately $705 million of outstanding liabilities, including trade payables, but excluding intercompany liabilities
and deferred revenue.
In addition, the indenture governing the notes permits our subsidiaries to incur additional indebtedness, and does not contain any limitation on the
amount of other liabilities, such as trade payables, that may be incurred by our subsidiaries.

The negative covenants in the indenture that governs the notes may have a limited effect.
The indenture governing the notes contains covenants limiting our ability and our subsidiaries' ability to create certain liens, enter into certain sale
and leaseback transactions, and consolidate or merge with, or convey, transfer or lease all or substantially all of our assets to, another person. The limitation
on liens and limitation on sale and leaseback covenants contain exceptions that will allow us and our subsidiaries to incur liens with respect to material
assets. See "Description of Notes--Limitation on Liens" in this prospectus supplement and "Description of Debt Securities--Certain Covenants" in the
accompanying prospectus. In light of these exceptions, holders of the notes may be structurally or contractually subordinated to new lenders.
We are permitted to incur more debt, which may intensify the risks associated with our current leverage, including the risk that we will be unable
to service our debt.
The indenture governing the notes does not limit the amount of additional unsecured debt that we may incur. In addition, in July 2010, we issued
$500 million in senior unsecured notes due 2020, in September 2012, we issued $400 million in senior unsecured notes due 2022, in June 2013, we issued
$600 million in senior unsecured notes due 2023 and in September 2016, we issued $300 million in senior unsecured notes due 2026. In addition, under our
revolving credit facility we had no borrowings outstanding as of July 31, 2019 and the ability to borrow up to $1 billion. Subsequent to July 31, 2019, we
borrowed $200 million under our revolving credit facility. As described above under "Prospectus Supplement Summary--Recent Developments," on
August 7, 2019, we entered into $500 million term loan facility, the full amount of which is outstanding as of August 31, 2019. We intend to redeem the
outstanding 2020 notes with the proceeds from this offering as described in "Use of Proceeds." Our outstanding senior notes rank, and any indebtedness we
have incurred or will incur under the revolving credit facility and the term loan facility will rank, pari passu with the notes. If we incur additional debt, the
risks associated with our leverage, including the risk that we will be unable to service our debt, will increase.
The provisions in the indenture that governs the notes relating to change of control transactions will not necessarily protect you in the event of a
highly leveraged transaction.
The provisions contained in the indenture will not necessarily afford you protection in the event of a highly leveraged transaction that may adversely
affect you, including a reorganization, restructuring, merger or other similar transaction involving us. These transactions may not involve a change in
voting power or beneficial ownership or, even if they do, may not involve a change of the magnitude required under the definition of "change of control
repurchase event" in the indenture to trigger these provisions, notably, that the transactions are accompanied or followed within 60 days by a downgrade in
the rating of the notes offered under this prospectus supplement, following which the notes are no longer rated "investment grade." Except as described
under "Description of Notes--Purchase of Notes upon a Change of Control Repurchase Event," the indenture does not contain provisions that permit the
holders of the notes to require us to repurchase the notes in the event of a takeover, recapitalization or similar transaction.
We may not be able to repurchase all of the notes upon a change of control repurchase event.
As described under "Description of Notes--Purchase of Notes upon a Change of Control Repurchase Event," we will be required to offer to
repurchase the notes upon the occurrence of a change of control repurchase event. We may not have sufficient funds to repurchase the notes in cash at such
time or have the ability to arrange necessary financing on acceptable terms. In addition, our ability to repurchase the notes for cash may be limited by law
or the terms of other agreements relating to our indebtedness outstanding at the time.
There are no existing markets for the notes. If any develop, they may not be liquid.
There are currently no established markets for the notes. We do not intend to list the notes on any national securities exchange or to seek their
quotation on any automated dealer quotation system. The underwriters have

advised us that they currently intend to make a market in the notes following the offering, as permitted by applicable laws or regulations. However, the
underwriters have no obligation to make a market in such notes and they may cease market-making activities at any time without notice. Further, there can
be no assurance as to the liquidity of any markets that may develop for the notes, your ability to sell your notes or the prices at which you will be able to
sell your notes. Future trading prices of the notes will depend on many factors, including prevailing interest rates, our financial condition and results of
operations, the then-current ratings assigned to the notes and the market for similar securities. Any trading market that develops would be affected by many
factors independent of and in addition to the foregoing, including:


·
the time remaining to the maturity of the notes;


·
the outstanding amount of the notes;


·
our financial performance;


·
our credit ratings with nationally recognized credit rating agencies; and


·
the level, direction and volatility of market interest rates generally.
Ratings of the notes may change after issuance and affect the market price and marketability of the notes.
We currently expect that, prior to issuance, the notes will be rated by Fitch Ratings, Ltd., Moody's Investors Service Inc. and Standard & Poor's, a
division of The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. Such ratings are limited in scope, and do not address all material risks relating to an investment in the notes,
but rather reflect only the view of each rating agency at the time the rating is issued. An explanation of the significance of such rating may be obtained
from such rating agency. There is no assurance that such credit ratings will be issued or remain in effect for any given period of time or that such ratings
will not be lowered, suspended or withdrawn entirely by the rating agencies, if, in each rating agency's judgment, circumstances so warrant. It is also
possible that such ratings may be lowered in connection with future events, such as future acquisitions. Any lowering, suspension or withdrawal of such
ratings may have an adverse effect on the market price or marketability of the notes. In addition, any decline in the ratings of the notes may make it more
difficult for us to raise capital on acceptable terms.
Increased leverage may harm our financial condition and results of operations.
As of July 31, 2019, we had approximately $3.9 billion of total liabilities on a consolidated basis and the ability to borrow up to $1 billion under our
revolving credit facility. Subsequent to July 31, 2019, we borrowed $200 million under our revolving credit facility. As described above under "Prospectus
Supplement Summary--Recent Developments," on August 7, 2019, we entered into a $500 million term loan facility, the full amount of which is
outstanding as of August 31, 2019. We may incur additional indebtedness in the future and the notes do not restrict future incurrence of indebtedness. Any
increase in our level of indebtedness and leverage will have important effects on our future operations, including, without limitation:


·
increased cash requirements to support the payment of interest;


·
increased vulnerability to adverse changes in general economic and industry conditions, as well as competitive pressure; and

·
depending on the level of our outstanding debt, a decreased ability to obtain additional financing for working capital, capital expenditures,

general corporate and other purposes.
Our ability to make payments of principal and interest on our indebtedness depends upon our future performance, which will be subject to general
economic conditions and financial, business and other factors

affecting our consolidated operations, many of which are beyond our control. If we are unable to generate sufficient cash flow from operations in the
future to service our debt, we may be required, among other things:


·
to seek additional financing in the debt or equity markets;


·
to refinance or restructure all or a portion of our debt, including the notes;


·
to sell selected assets;


·
to reduce or delay planned capital expenditures; or


·
to reduce or delay planned operating and investment expenditures.
