BETHESDA, Md., 05-NOV-04 --
Lockheed Martin Corporation [NYSE: LMT] today announced the full tender offer consideration for its offer to purchase any and all of its outstanding 7.70% notes due 2008 (the “2008 Notes”).
The offer to purchase 2008 Notes (the “Any and All Offer”) expires at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, Nov. 9, 2004. Lockheed Martin expects to pay the full tender offer consideration plus any accrued and unpaid interest for 2008 Notes purchased pursuant to the Any and All Offer on Nov. 10, 2004. The offer is conditioned on the satisfaction or, where possible, waiver of the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase dated Oct. 26, 2004 (the “Offer to Purchase”). The Any and All Offer is not conditioned on a minimum principal amount of notes being tendered.
The table below indicates, among other things, the actual reference yield, the tender offer yield and full tender offer consideration per $1,000 principal amount of 2008 Notes validly tendered and not withdrawn before the expiration date for the Any and All Offer, based on calculations made by the dealer managers at 2:00 p.m., New York City time, today, Nov. 5, 2004.
The full tender offer consideration per $1,000 principal amount of 2008 Notes was calculated in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the fixed spread specified above for the 2008 Notes over the yield based on the bid side price of the Reference U.S. Treasury Security specified above, as calculated by the dealer managers today. The pricing was determined only once at 2:00 p.m., New York City time, today, Nov. 5, 2004.
Tendered 2008 Notes will be accepted for purchase only in $1,000 increments.
The Any and All Offer was made in conjunction with a separate offer, the “Maximum Tender Offer”, both made pursuant to the Offer to Purchase, which contains a more comprehensive description of the terms of both tender offers.
Lockheed Martin has retained J. P. Morgan Securities Inc. and Citigroup to serve as joint dealer managers, The Bank of New York to serve as depositary and Morrow & Co., Inc. to serve as information agent for the tender offers.
