PART I
INFORMATION REQUIRED IN THE SECTION 10(a) PROSPECTUS

The documents containing the information specified in Part I of Form S-8 will be delivered to employees as specified by Rule 428(b)(1) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the 'Securities Act'). Such documents are not being filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the 'Commission') either as part of this Registration Statement or as prospectuses or prospectus supplements pursuant to Rule 424 of the Securities Act. Such documents and the documents incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement pursuant to Item 3 of Part II hereof, taken together, constitute a prospectus that meets the requirements of Section 10(a) of the Securities Act.

PART II
INFORMATION REQUIRED IN THE REGISTRATION STATEMENT

Item 3. Incorporation of Documents by Reference.

The following documents filed with the Commission are hereby incorporated herein by reference (to the extent that they are filed, but not furnished):

(a)Roper Technologies, Inc.'s (the 'Company's') Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.

(b)The Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.

(c)The Company's Current Reports on Form 8-K dated January 6, 2021, March 22, 2021 and June 14, 2021.

(d)The description of the Company's common stock contained in the Company's Form 8-A filed with the Commission on October 7, 1996 pursuant to the Exchange Act, including any amendment thereto or report filed for the purpose of updating such description.

All other documents subsequently filed by the Company pursuant to Sections 13(a), 13(c), 14 and 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the 'Exchange Act'), prior to the filing of a post-effective amendment which indicates that all securities offered have been sold or which deregisters all securities then remaining unsold, shall be deemed to be incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement and to be a part hereof from the date of the filing of such documents.

Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Item 3, no document, or portion of or exhibit to a document, that is 'furnished' to (rather than 'filed' with) the Commission shall be incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement.

Item 4. Description of Securities

Not applicable.

Item 5. Interests of Named Experts and Counsel.

The validity of the issuance of the common stock registered hereby is being passed upon by John K. Stipancich, Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of the Company. Mr. Stipancich beneficially owns shares of Company common stock and has options to purchase shares of Company common stock.

Item 6. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

As permitted by Section 102(b)(7) of the Delaware General Corporation Law, our amended and restated certificate of incorporation includes a provision that eliminates the personal liability of each of our directors for monetary damages breach of such director's fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability: (a) for any breach of the director's duty of loyalty to us or our stockholders; (b) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law; (c) under Section 174 of the Delaware General Corporation Law; or (d) for transactions from which the director derived an improper personal benefit. The directors' liability


will be further limited to the extent permitted by any future amendments to the Delaware General Corporation law authorizing the further limitation or elimination of the liability of directors.

In addition, as permitted by Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, our amended and restated by-laws provide that: (i) we are required to indemnify our directors and officers to the fullest extent permitted by Delaware law, including those circumstances in which indemnification would otherwise be discretionary; (ii) we are required to advance expenses, as incurred, to such directors and officers in connection with defending a proceeding (except that it is not required to advance expenses to a person against whom we bring a claim for breach of the duty of loyalty, failure to act in good faith, intentional misconduct, knowing violation of the law or deriving an improper personal benefit); and (iii) the rights conferred in our amended and restated by-laws are not exclusive and we are authorized to enter into indemnification agreements with such directors, officers and employees.

We have entered into indemnification agreements with our directors and a number of our officers containing provisions which provide for the indemnification of such director or officer, as applicable, to the fullest extent permitted by Delaware law.

The indemnification provisions in our amended and restated by-laws, and any indemnification agreements entered into between us and our directors or officers, may be sufficiently broad to permit indemnification of our directors and officers for liabilities arising under the Securities Act.

The Company also maintains insurance coverage relating to certain liabilities of directors and officers.

Item 9. Undertakings.

(a)The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes:

(1)To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this Registration Statement:

(i)To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities;


(ii)To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the Registration Statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the Registration Statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in the volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than a 20 percent change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the 'Calculation of Registration Fee' table in the effective Registration Statement;

(iii)To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the Registration Statement or any material change to such information in the Registration Statement;

provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) above do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission by the Registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement.

(2)That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(3)To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

(b)The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the Registrant's annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan's annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) that is incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(c)Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Registrants pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrants have been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrants will, unless in the opinion of their counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
