Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward Looking Statements
The forward looking statements contained in this document involve risks and uncertainties that may affect Lockheed Martin’s and Leidos’ operations, markets, products, services, prices and other factors as discussed in filings with the SEC. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, economic, competitive, legal, governmental and technological factors. Accordingly, there is no assurance that the expectations of either company will be realized. This document also contains statements about Lockheed Martin’s agreement to separate a substantial portion of its government information technology infrastructure services business and its technical services business, which have been realigned in the IS&GS business segment, and combine this business with Leidos in a Reverse Morris Trust transaction (the “Transaction”). Many factors could cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements with respect to the Transaction, including risks relating to the completion of the Transaction on anticipated terms and timing, including obtaining stockholder and regulatory approvals, anticipated tax treatment, the dependency of any split-off transaction on market conditions and the value to be received in any split-off transaction, unforeseen liabilities, future capital expenditures, revenues, expenses, earnings, synergies, economic performance, indebtedness, financial condition, losses, future prospects, business and management strategies for the management, expansion and growth of the new combined company’s operations, Leidos’ ability to integrate the businesses successfully and to achieve anticipated synergies, and the risk that disruptions from the Transaction will harm Lockheed Martin’s or Leidos’ business. While the list of factors presented here is considered representative, no such list should be considered to be a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Unlisted factors may present significant additional obstacles to the realization of forward-looking statements. Consequences of material differences in results as compared with those anticipated in the forward-looking statements could include, among other things, business disruption, operational problems, financial loss, legal liability to third parties and similar risks, any of which could have a material adverse effect on Lockheed Martin’s or Leidos’ consolidated financial condition, results of operations or liquidity. For a discussion identifying additional important factors that could cause actual results to vary materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements, see Lockheed Martin’s and Leidos’ filings with the SEC, including “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and “Risk Factors” in Lockheed Martin’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 and in Leidos’ transition report on Form 10-K for the 11-month period ended January 1, 2016 and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q which are available on the respective companies’ websites at http://www.leidos.com (Leidos) and http://www.lockheedmartin.com (Lockheed Martin) and at the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov.
