The exchange offer is being conducted upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offering Memorandum dated August 7, 2017, and the related letter of transmittal (the "offering documents").  The exchange offer is only made, and copies of the offering documents will only be made available, to holders of the old notes who have certified to Lockheed Martin in an eligibility letter as to certain matters, including (1) their status as "qualified institutional buyers" as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or (2) outside the United States, their status as non-U.S. persons as defined in Regulation S under the Securities Act.  Copies of the eligibility letter are available to holders of the old notes through the information agent, Global Bondholder Services Corporation, at their website http://gbsc-usa.com/eligibility/lockheedmartin or by calling 866-794-2200 (toll free) or 212-430-3774 (for banks and brokers). 

The total exchange consideration to be received by tendering holders of each series of the old notes in the exchange offer will consist of (i) for each $1,000 principal amount of outstanding old notes tendered and accepted, a specified principal amount of new notes for the series of old notes tendered and accepted and an additional cash amount, if applicable, and (ii) an early participation payment payable in additional principal amount of new notes only to holders who tender their old notes on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 18, 2017, subject to extension (referred to as the "early participation date").

The exchange offer will expire at 12:00 p.m. midnight, New York City time, at the end of the day on September 1, 2017, unless extended or terminated.  Tenders of old notes in the exchange offer may be validly withdrawn at any time on or prior to the early participation date.  However, tenders submitted in the exchange offer after the early participation date will be irrevocable except where additional withdrawal rights are required by law (as determined by Lockheed Martin, subject to judgments by a court of law having jurisdiction over such matters).

The exchange offer is subject to certain conditions, including the minimum condition that Lockheed Martin receive valid tenders, not validly withdrawn, of enough old notes so that at least $300,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the new notes is issued in exchange for the old notes.
