Are you the same company as Martin Marietta Corporation?

No. We used to be a division of Martin Marietta Corporation. Martin Marietta Materials, Inc. was formed in November 1993 and an initial public offering of approximately 19% of the common stock was completed in February 1994. The remaining outstanding common stock of Martin Marietta Materials that was held by Lockheed Martin was disposed of by means of a tax-free exchange offer in October 1996, which resulted in 100% of the outstanding shares of Martin Marietta Materials being publicly traded. The former Martin Marietta Corporation merged with Lockheed Corporation to become Lockheed Martin Corporation. more information

Are your Board members independent?

The Board believes that at least two-thirds of the Board of Directors should consist of independent non-management Directors. The Board is responsible for the appointment of Board and Committee members according to criteria that it determines to be in the best interest of the Corporation and its shareholders and in accordance with the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange and other applicable regulations. The Board will affirmatively determine whether a Director is "independent." The Board will review annually the relationships that each Director has with the Corporation. An outside Director is "independent" if the Director has no direct or indirect material relationship with the Corporation, subject to other or additional qualifications prescribed by the New York Stock Exchange. A Director who is an employee of the Corporation will not be viewed as independent until at least three years have passed following retirement from the Corporation.

Will the exchange of shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock for shares of Materials Common Stock be taxable to Lockheed Martin stockholders? Do stockholders have to pay taxes on shares of Materials Common Stock received in the Exchange Offer?
No. Although the IRS will not be asked to rule on the Transaction and will not be bound by Lockheed Martin's treatment of the Transaction, King & Spalding, special tax counsel to Lockheed Martin, has issued its opinion to Lockheed Martin stating that the exchange of shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock for shares of Materials Common Stock will not be taxable to Lockheed Martin stockholders for United States federal income tax purposes. The receipt of cash for a fractional share of Materials Common Stock will be taxable as a capital gain or loss if your Lockheed Martin Common Stock was held as a capital asset.
What will be the tax basis of shares of Materials Common Stock I receive in exchange for my shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock?
If you tender all of your shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock (and all are accepted for exchange by Lockheed Martin), the tax basis in shares of Materials Common Stock you receive in the exchange will equal your total tax basis in shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock before the exchange.

If you tender less than all of your shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock, or less than all of your shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock are accepted for exchange, the total tax basis in the shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock and Materials Common Stock received in the exchange that you hold immediately after the exchange also should equal your total tax basis in shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock before the exchange; however, the basis of the shares of Materials Common Stock you receive will not necessarily equal the basis of the shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock that are accepted for exchange. The portion of your total tax basis allocated to the shares of Materials Common Stock you receive in the Exchange Offer will equal your old tax basis in the shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock multiplied by a fraction. The fraction will be equal the aggregate fair market value of the shares of Materials Common Stock you receive in the Exchange Offer divided by the fair market value of the shares of Materials Common Stock plus the fair market value of the shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock on the date of the exchange. Stated as a formula, the basis in your shares of Materials Common Stock received in the Exchange Offer may be determined as follows:
Basis in Materials Common Stock received in the Exchange Offer = Basis in Lockheed Martin Common Stock prior to the Exchange Offer X FMV of Materials Common Stock Received in the Exchange Offer ÷ FMV of Materials Common Stock Received in the Exchange Offer Plus FMV of Lockheed Martin Common Stock held immediately after the Exchange Offer


If additional shares of Materials Common Stock are received in a spin-off, the same determination must be repeated using the basis in the shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock as determined following the Exchange Offer pursuant to the approach described in 5 or 6 below.
What will be the tax basis in shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock that are not exchanged pursuant to the Exchange Offer?
If you tender less than all of your shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock, or less than all of your shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock are accepted for exchange, the tax total basis in your remaining shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock will not equal the total tax basis in the shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock before the exchange. The total tax basis in your unexchanged shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock after the transaction will equal your total tax basis in shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock before the exchange, less the basis allocated to shares of Materials Common Stock as determined under the calculation described in 4 above.

What will be the tax basis in shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock which are not exchanged pursuant to the Exchange Offer if I have blocks of shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock which have different per share tax bases?
While the proper tax treatment is not clear, it may be reasonable to take the position that the tax basis of each block of shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock may be reduced proportionately for the basis allocated to your shares of Materials Common Stock. Please consult with your tax advisor before applying this approach to your specific situation.
What will be the tax basis in shares of Materials Common Stock received with respect to blocks of shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock which have different per share tax basis?
While the proper treatment is not clear, it is possible that the relative basis disparities in the blocks of shares of Lockheed Martin Common Stock may be preserved in different blocks of shares of Materials Common Stock or it is possible that the tax basis in each of the shares of Materials Common Stock may be uniform. Please consult with your tax advisor.
