Lockheed Martin
Corporation announced that it has terminated the merger agreement
with The Titan Corporation because Titan did not satisfy all the closing
conditions on or before June 25, 2004. Under the terms of the amended merger
agreement, either party could terminate the merger agreement if Titan either
(i) had not obtained written confirmation from the Department of Justice that
the investigation of alleged Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) violations
was resolved as to Titan and the Department did not intend to pursue any
claims against Titan; or (ii) Titan had not entered into a plea agreement on
or prior to June 25, 2004, provided that the terminating party had not
contributed to the failure to consummate the merger through a breach of its
obligations in any material respect. Titan did not satisfy either

The merger agreement was entered into on September 15, 2003, and was
amended twice to provide additional time for Titan to resolve FCPA concerns
with the U.S. Government. The corporation declined Titan’s request for a
further extension.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin employs about 130,000
people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design,
development, manufacture and integration of advanced technology systems,
products and services. The corporation reported 2003 sales of $31.8 billion.
