RESTRICTED STOCK UNIT AWARD AGREEMENT (ANNUAL)
GRANTED UNDER THE LOCKHEED MARTIN CORPORATION
2020 INCENTIVE PERFORMANCE AWARD PLAN
THIS DOCUMENT CONSTITUTES PART OF A PROSPECTUS COVERING
SECURITIES THAT HAVE BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE
SECURITIES ACT OF 1933
This Award Agreement applies to the Restricted Stock Units (“RSUs”) granted by Lockheed Martin Corporation to you as of the Award Date (defined above) under the Lockheed Martin Corporation 2020 Incentive Performance Award Plan (“Plan”). The term Restricted Stock Unit or RSU as used in this Award Agreement refers only to the Restricted Stock Units awarded to you under this Award Agreement. References to the “Corporation” include Lockheed Martin Corporation and its Subsidiaries.
Each RSU entitles you, upon satisfaction of the continuous employment and other requirements set forth in this Award Agreement and the Plan, to receive from the Corporation: (i) one (1) share of the Corporation’s common stock, par value $1.00 per share (“Stock”); and (ii) a cash payment equal to the sum of any cash dividends paid to stockholders of the Corporation during the Restricted Period (as defined below), each in accordance with the terms of this Award Agreement, the Plan, and any rules and procedures adopted by the Management Development and Compensation Committee (“Committee”) of the Board of Directors.
This Award Agreement sets forth some of the terms and conditions of your Award under the Plan, as determined by the Committee. Additional terms and conditions, including tax information, are contained in the Plan and in the Prospectus relating to the Plan of which the Plan and this Award Agreement are a part. In the event of a conflict between this Award Agreement and the Plan, the Plan document will control. The number of RSUs applicable to your Award are set forth in the electronic stock plan award recordkeeping system (“Stock Plan System”) maintained by the Corporation or its designee at http://www.stockplanconnect.com. The Prospectus is also available at this website.
Except as described in Section 9, your Award is not effective or enforceable until you properly acknowledge your acceptance of the Award by completing the electronic receipt on the Stock Plan System as soon as possible but in no event later than May 31, 2021 (the “Acceptance Deadline”). Except as described in Section 9, if you do not properly acknowledge your acceptance of this Award Agreement on or before the Acceptance Deadline, this Award will be forfeited.
Award Date: February 25, 2021
Assuming prompt and proper acknowledgement of your acceptance of this Award Agreement as described above and in Section 9, this Award will be effective as of the Award Date. Acceptance of this Award Agreement constitutes your consent to any action taken under the Plan consistent with its terms with respect to this Award and your agreement to be bound by the restrictions contained in Section 9 and Exhibit A (“Post-Employment Conduct Agreement”) and Exhibit B (“Stock Ownership Requirements”), as amended from time to time.
1. CONSIDERATION FOR AWARD
The consideration for the RSUs is your continued service to the Corporation as an Employee during the Restricted Period set forth below. If you do not continue to perform services for the Corporation as an Employee during the entire Restricted Period as set forth below under “RESTRICTED PERIOD, FORFEITURE,” your Award will be forfeited in whole or in part.
2. RIGHTS OF OWNERSHIP, RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFER
During the Restricted Period, your RSUs will be subject to forfeiture. Until the Restricted Period ends with respect to a particular RSU and a share of Stock is delivered to you, you generally will not have the rights and privileges of a stockholder. In particular, you will not have the right to vote your RSUs on any matter put to the stockholders of the Corporation; you may not sell, transfer, assign, pledge, use as collateral or otherwise dispose of or encumber RSUs; and you will not have the right to receive any dividends paid to stockholders or dividend equivalents on the RSUs.
Upon expiration or termination of the Restricted Period with respect to your RSUs, and subject to the forfeiture provisions set forth below, each RSU for which the restrictions have lapsed will be exchanged for a certificate (either in paper or book entry form) evidencing one (1) share of Stock issued in your name and a cash amount equal to the dividends that would have been paid to you had you owned such share from the Award Date until the expiration or termination of the Restricted Period (“Deferred Dividend Equivalents” or “DDEs”). Your shares and the cash payment for the DDEs will be delivered to you as soon as practicable, but not later than sixty (60) days after the expiration or termination of the Restricted Period, and in no event later than the March 15 following the expiration or termination of such Restricted Period (or, for taxpayers in Canada or as otherwise required by local country law, in no event later than the December 31 following the expiration or termination of such Restricted Period).
The certificates delivered to you may contain any legend the Corporation determines is appropriate under the securities laws.
You are responsible for payment of all Taxes imposed on you as a result of the Award. The Corporation will comply with all applicable U.S. Tax withholding requirements applicable to the RSUs, the DDEs, and associated Stock. Please see the Prospectus for the Plan for a discussion of certain material U.S. Tax consequences of the Award. Any withholding Tax on shares of Stock (and associated DDEs) deliverable to you will be satisfied by means of the Corporation’s reducing the number of shares of Stock (and associated DDEs) deliverable to you in respect of a vested Award. If you are an Insider at the time of income tax withholding, the Corporation will base withholding on the highest individual tax rate. If you are not an Insider at the time of income tax withholding, the Corporation will base withholding on the highest
Award Date: February 25, 2021
individual tax rate, unless you elect otherwise in accordance with procedures established by the Corporation during an election window that may be offered by the Corporation. If you elect a lower tax rate for withholding, then you may owe additional taxes as a result of the payment of the Award.
If any Tax withholding is required with respect to any Award (including with respect to associated DDEs) during the Restricted Period, the Corporation generally shall reduce the Award by the number of shares of Stock and/or the amount of associated DDEs with a value equal to the Tax withholding obligation and such shares of Stock and/or DDEs will be used to satisfy the Tax withholding obligation.
The Corporation shall also have the right to (i) offset any other obligation of the Corporation to you (including but not limited to by withholding from your salary) by an amount sufficient to satisfy the Tax withholding obligation, or (ii) require you (or your estate) to pay the Corporation an amount equal to the Tax withholding obligation.
If you are a taxpayer in a country other than the U.S., you agree to make appropriate arrangements with the Corporation or its subsidiaries for the satisfaction of all income and employment tax withholding requirements, as well as social insurance contributions applicable to the RSUs, the DDEs, and associated Stock. Please see the tax summary for your country on the Stock Plan System at http://www.stockplanconnect.com. If you are a taxpayer in a country other than the U.S., you represent that you will consult with your own tax advisors in connection with this Award and that you are not relying on the Corporation for any tax advice.
If a payment under this Award constitutes nonqualified deferred compensation under Section 409A of the Code, no payment due upon termination of employment shall be made unless the termination of employment is a “separation from service” as defined in Section 409A of the Code and accompanying regulations. In the event Code section 409A(a)(2)(B)(i) applies because you are a specified employee receiving a distribution on account of a termination of employment, delivery of Stock and the DDEs may be delayed for six months from such date. Similarly, if you are an Insider subject to the reporting provisions of Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”), delivery of Stock following the expiration of the Restricted Period for any reason may be delayed for six months. For example, if the delivery of the Stock would result in a nonexempt short-swing transaction under Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act, delivery will be delayed until the earliest date upon which the delivery either would not result in a nonexempt short-swing transaction or would otherwise not result in liability under Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act.
After the Stock is delivered to you, you will enjoy all of the rights and privileges associated with ownership of the shares, including the right to vote on any matter put to stockholder vote, to receive dividends, and to encumber, sell or otherwise transfer the shares. You should note, however, that, while the shares would thus be free of the restrictions imposed during the Restricted Period, your ability to sell or pledge the shares may be limited under the federal securities laws or corporate policy.
In the event of your death, the Stock and cash payment for the DDEs in respect of your RSUs will be transferred to your Beneficiary (as defined in the Plan).
Award Date: February 25, 2021
3. RESTRICTED PERIOD, FORFEITURE
Except as otherwise provided in Section 4 below or as required to satisfy a Tax withholding obligation as provided in Section 2 above, all of your RSUs will be forfeited and all of your rights to the RSUs and to receive Stock for your RSUs and to receive cash payment for the DDEs will cease without further obligation on the part of the Corporation unless (i) except as described in Section 9, you personally accept this Award Agreement as provided in Section 9 by the Acceptance Deadline, and (ii) you provide services to the Corporation as an Employee of the Corporation throughout the entire Restricted Period. The Restricted Period begins on the Award Date and terminates on February 25, 2024 (the “Vesting Date”), subject only to the specific exceptions provided below.
4. DEATH, DISABILITY, LAYOFF, RETIREMENT
(a) Death and Disability
Your RSUs and the DDEs will immediately vest and no longer be subject to the continuing employment requirement if:
(i) you die while still employed by the Corporation; or
(ii) you terminate employment as a result of your total disability. Your employment will be treated as terminating because of a total disability on the date you commence receiving a benefit under the Corporation’s long-term disability plan in which you participate (or, if you are not enrolled in the Corporation’s long-term disability plan, on the date on which long-term disability benefits would have commenced under the plan under which you would have been covered, had you enrolled, using the standards set forth in that plan).
The vested RSUs will be exchanged for shares of Stock, and the DDEs will be paid in cash as soon as practicable, but no later than sixty (60) days after the date of your termination of employment, on account of death or total disability, and in no event later than the March 15 next following the year in which such termination occurs (or, for taxpayers in Canada or as otherwise required by local country law, in no event later than the December 31 following such termination).
Except as otherwise determined by the Corporation in its discretion in accordance with Section 9, in the event that you die and have not properly acknowledged acceptance of the Award prior to your death (or by the Acceptance Deadline, whichever comes first), you will forfeit all of your RSUs granted hereunder and all of your rights to the RSUs and to receive Stock for your RSUs and the DDEs will cease without further obligation on the part of the Corporation.
(b) Retirement or Layoff
If you retire or are laid off by the Corporation (including through a voluntary separation program that constitutes a window program under Section 409A of the Code) and the effective date of your retirement or layoff is after August 25, 2021 (the “Minimum Service Date”), but before the Vesting Date, you will continue to vest in your RSUs and the DDEs as if you had remained
Award Date: February 25, 2021
employed by the Corporation until the Vesting Date. The effective date of your retirement is the first day following the date you terminate services with the Corporation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you are an employee who has been identified by the Corporation as subject to Divestiture (as defined in Section 6 below), and the effective date of your layoff is after the Award Date but before the Minimum Service Date, you will continue to vest in your RSUs and the DDEs as if you remained employed by the Corporation until the Vesting Date.
As a condition to the vesting of any RSUs (and associated DDEs) upon your layoff in accordance with this Section, you will be required to execute and deliver to the Corporation a general release of claims against the Corporation in a form acceptable to the Corporation within the time period specified by the Corporation in such release and not revoke such release within any revocation period provided for therein. Except as otherwise expressly provided by the Corporation in writing, a failure to satisfy this condition will result in forfeiture of such RSUs (and associated DDEs) upon your layoff during the Restricted Period.
The vested RSUs will be exchanged for shares of Stock, and the related DDEs associated with the vested portion of your RSUs will be paid in cash, on or as soon as practicable after the Vesting Date, but in no event later than the March 15 following the end of the Restricted Period (or, for taxpayers in Canada or as otherwise required by local country law, in no event later than the December 31 following the end of the Restricted Period).
For purposes of this provision, the term “retirement” means retirement from service following attainment of (i) age 55 and ten years of service (at the time of termination), or (ii) age 65.
If you are employed in Canada, for purposes of the Award Agreement, the date of termination of employment will be the last day of actual and active employment. For the avoidance of doubt, except as may be required by applicable minimum standards legislation, no period of notice or payment in lieu of notice that is given or that ought to have been given under any applicable law or contract in respect of such termination of employment that follows or is in respect of a period after your last day of actual and active employment, if any, will be considered as extending your period of employment for purposes of determining your entitlement under this Award Agreement.
5. RESIGNATION OR TERMINATION BEFORE THE VESTING DATE
Except where prohibited by law, if you resign or your employment otherwise terminates before the Vesting Date, other than on account of death, total disability, layoff, or retirement (as described above), or Divestiture or Change in Control (as described below), you will forfeit your RSUs and the related DDEs on the date of your termination.
Except where prohibited by law, if your employment terminates for any reason before the Vesting Date, by action of the Corporation due to your misconduct, then you will forfeit your RSUs and the associated DDEs on the date of your termination. If your employment terminates due to your misconduct after the Minimum Service Date, but before the Vesting Date, then you will not be eligible for continued vesting under Section 4(b) of the Award Agreement, even if at the time of your termination due to misconduct you have attained (i) age 55 and ten years of service, or (ii) age 65. The business area or Enterprise Operations review committee responsible for
Award Date: February 25, 2021
determinations of misconduct, or the Committee if you are an Elected Officer, will determine if your employment terminates due to misconduct.
In the event of a Divestiture (as defined below) of all or substantially all of a business operation of the Corporation and such Divestiture results in the termination of your employment with the Corporation or its subsidiaries and the transfer of such employment to the other party to the Divestiture or the entity resulting from the Divestiture (or its affiliate), then the Committee may arrange for such other party or entity to assume or continue your RSUs or substitute equivalent restricted securities for your RSUs, with the same terms and conditions that apply to your RSUs pursuant to this Award Agreement, and the remainder of this Section 6 shall not apply.
If (i) such assumption, continuance or substitution of your RSUs does not occur, (ii) the Divestiture results in the termination of your employment with the Corporation or its subsidiaries, and (iii) your employment transfers to the other party to the Divestiture or the entity resulting from the Divestiture (or its affiliate), then the following rules will apply:
(a) Pro-rata Vesting. You shall be eligible to receive a fraction of your RSUs and the associated DDEs with respect to such fraction. The numerator of such fraction shall equal the number of days in the Restricted Period before your employment as an Employee terminated due to the Divestiture, and the denominator shall equal the total number of days in the Restricted Period. Fractional shares shall be rounded up to the next whole share.
(b) Special Rule if Retirement Eligible. Notwithstanding Section 6(a) immediately above, if at the time your employment with the Corporation or its subsidiaries terminates due to Divestiture and transfers to the other party to the Divestiture or the resulting entity to the Divestiture (or its affiliate), you are eligible for retirement treatment under Section 4(b) above (without regard to whether your termination occurs after the Minimum Service Date), then the Corporation will treat you as having retired and apply the vesting provision in Section 4(b) above to your RSUs.
(c) No Further Rights. The Committee shall have complete and absolute discretion to make the determinations called for under this Section 6, and all such determinations shall be binding on you and on any person who claims all or any part of your RSUs and associated DDEs on your behalf as well as on the Corporation. If you terminate employment during the Restricted Period due to Divestiture but are eligible to receive a portion of your RSUs and associated DDEs as a result of this Section 6, payment of such portion of your RSUs and associated DDEs shall be in full satisfaction of all rights you have under this Award Agreement and you will receive shares of Stock in exchange for RSUs and the cash payment for the DDEs as soon as practicable, but no later than sixty (60) days after your termination of employment with the Corporation.
For the purposes of this Section 6, the term “Divestiture” shall mean a transaction that results in the transfer of control of the business operation divested to any person, corporation, association, partnership, joint venture, limited liability company or other business entity of which less than 50% of the voting stock or other equity interests (in the case of entities other than corporations), is owned or controlled directly or indirectly by the Corporation, by one or more of the Corporation’s subsidiaries or by a combination thereof.
Award Date: February 25, 2021
7. CHANGE IN CONTROL DURING THE RESTRICTED PERIOD
In the event of a consummation of a Change in Control during the Restricted Period, the number of RSUs subject to this Award and associated DDEs will become vested (i) on the effective date of the Change in Control if the RSUs are not assumed, continued, or equivalent restricted securities are not substituted for the RSUs by the Corporation or its successor, or (ii) if the RSUs are assumed, continued or substituted by the Corporation or its successor, on the effective date of your involuntary termination by the Corporation or its successor other than for Cause (as defined herein, not including death or total disability) or your voluntary termination with Good Reason (as defined herein), in either case, within the 24-month period following the consummation of the Change in Control.
In the event the RSUs and associated DDEs vest in accordance with this Section 7 (whether immediately following the Change in Control or following your termination), the shares of Stock or equivalent substituted securities in which you have become vested and the associated DDEs (less any Tax withholding) shall be delivered to you within 14 days of the date on which you become vested.
(a) “Cause” shall mean either of the following:
(i) Conviction for an act of fraud, embezzlement, theft or other act constituting a felony (other than traffic-related offenses or as a result of vicarious liability); or
(ii) Willful misconduct that is materially injurious to the Corporation’s financial position, operating results or reputation; provided, however that no act or failure to act shall be considered “willful” unless done, or omitted to be done, by you (a) in bad faith; (b) for the purpose of receiving an actual improper personal benefit in the form of money, property or services; or (c) in circumstances where you had reasonable cause to believe that the act or failure to act was unlawful.
(b) “Good Reason” shall mean, without your express written consent, the occurrence of any one or more of the following after the Change in Control:
(i) A material and substantial reduction in the nature or status of your authority or responsibilities;
(ii) A material reduction in your annualized rate of base salary;
(iii) A material reduction in the aggregate value of your level of participation in any short or long term incentive cash compensation
Award Date: February 25, 2021
plan, employee benefit or retirement plan or compensation practices, arrangements, or policies;
(iv) A material reduction in the aggregate level of participation in equity-based incentive compensation plans; or
(v) Your principal place of employment is relocated to a location that is greater than 50 miles from your principal place of employment on the date the Change in Control is consummated.
Your continued employment following an event that would constitute a basis for voluntary termination with Good Reason shall not constitute Good Reason if you consent to, or waive your rights with respect to any circumstances constituting Good Reason. In addition, the occurrence of an event described in (i) through (v) shall constitute the basis for voluntary termination for Good Reason only if you provide written notice of your intent to terminate employment within 90 days of the first occurrence of such event and the Corporation has had at least 30 days from the date on which such notice is provided to cure such occurrence. If you do not terminate employment for Good Reason within 180 days after the first occurrence of the applicable grounds, then you will be deemed to have waived your right to terminate for Good Reason with respect to such grounds.
8. AMENDMENT AND TERMINATION OF PLAN OR AWARDS
As provided in Section 9 of the Plan, subject to certain limitations contained within Section 9, the Board of Directors may at any time amend, suspend or discontinue the Plan and the Committee may at any time deviate from or amend this Award Agreement. Notwithstanding Section 9 of the Plan, no such amendment, suspension or discontinuance of the Plan or deviation from or amendment of Award Agreements will, except with your express written consent, adversely affect your rights under this Award Agreement. This Award Agreement shall not be amended or interpreted in a manner that is reasonably believed to result in the imposition of Tax under Section 409A of the Code.

The Corporation acts as the controller/owner of this Personal Data, and processes this Personal Data for purposes of implementing, administering, and managing the Plan. The Corporation protects the Personal Data that it receives in the United States from the European Union (“EU”), or any other location outside the United States, in accordance with data transfer agreements based on EU-approved Standard Contractual Clauses.
You understand that Personal Data may be transferred to any third parties assisting in the implementation, administration and management of the Plan, that these recipients may be located in your country or elsewhere, and that the recipient’s country may have different, including less stringent, data privacy laws and protections than your country. You may request a list with the names and addresses of any third-party recipients of the Personal Data at any time by contacting your local human resources representative.

You understand that Personal Data will be held only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage your participation in the Plan and comply with applicable legal requirements.
To the extent provided by your local law, you may, at any time, have the right to request: access to your Personal Data, rectification of your Personal Data, erasure of your Personal Data, restriction of processing of your Personal Data, portability of your Personal Data and information about the storage and processing of your Personal Data.

Nothing contained in this Award Agreement shall confer upon you any right of continued employment by the Corporation or guarantee that any future awards will be made to you under the Plan. In addition, nothing in this Award Agreement limits in any way the right of the Corporation to terminate your employment at any time. Neither the value of the RSUs awarded to you nor the DDEs will be taken into account for other benefits offered by the Corporation, including but not limited to pension benefits. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Award Agreement to the contrary, no Stock will be issued to you pursuant to this Award Agreement within six months from the Award Date.
Transactions involving Stock delivered under this Award Agreement are subject to the securities laws and CPS 722 (a copy of which has been made available to you). Among other things, CPS 722 prohibits employees of the Corporation from engaging in transactions that violate securities laws or involve hedging or pledging stock. Insiders are subject to additional restrictions. The Corporation recommends that Insiders consult with the Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary or staff before entering into any transactions involving Stock or RSUs.

Post-Employment Conduct Agreement
This Post-Employment Conduct Agreement (this “PECA”) attached as Exhibit A to the Award Agreement with an Award Date of February 25, 2021 (the “Award Agreement”), is entered into in consideration of, among other things, the grant of restricted stock units to me under the Award Agreement (the “RSUs”) pursuant to the Lockheed Martin Corporation 2020 Incentive Performance Award Plan (the “Plan”). References to the “Corporation” shall include Lockheed Martin Corporation and its Subsidiaries. By accepting the RSUs, I agree as follows:
1. Restrictions Following Termination of Employment.
(a) Covenant Not To Compete – Without the express written consent of the ”Required Approver” (as defined in Section 6), during the one-year period (or two-year period for Elected Officers) following the date of my termination of employment (the “Termination Date”) with the Corporation, I will not, directly or indirectly, be employed by, provide services to, or advise a “Restricted Company” (as defined in Section 6), whether as an employee, advisor, director, officer, partner or consultant, or in any other position, function or role that, in any such case,
(i) oversees, controls or affects the design, operation, research, manufacture, marketing, sale or distribution of “Competitive Products or Services” (as defined in Section 6) of or by the Restricted Company, or
(ii) would involve a substantial risk that the “Confidential or Proprietary Information” (as defined in Section 1(c) below) of the Corporation (including but not limited to technical information or intellectual property, strategic plans, information relating to pricing offered to the Corporation by vendors or suppliers or to prices charged or pricing contemplated to be charged by the Corporation, information relating to employee performance, promotions or identification for promotion, or information relating to the Corporation’s cost base) could be used to the disadvantage of the Corporation.
I acknowledge and agree that: (A) enforcement of this PECA pursuant to Sections 1(a)(i) and (ii) is necessary to protect, among other interests, the Corporation’s trade secrets and other Confidential or Proprietary Information, as defined by Section 1(c); and (B) Sections 1(a)(i) and (ii) shall not apply to me if I am a resident of or work in California, or if I work and/or reside in any other state or jurisdiction that prohibits or otherwise bans such a covenant between the Corporation and me.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, including but not limited to any applicable rules governing attorney conduct (such as the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct and state versions thereof), Sections 1(a)(i) and (ii) and Section 1(b) relating to non-solicitation, shall apply to individuals who are employed by the Corporation in an attorney position and whose occupation during the one-year (or two-year, for Elected Officers) period following employment with the Corporation does not include practicing law.
Award Date: February 25, 2021
In lieu of Section 1(a)(i) and (ii), as well as Section 1(b) relating to non-solicitation, the following Section 1(a)(iii) shall apply to individuals who are employed by the Corporation in an attorney position, and whose occupation during the one-year (or two-year, for Elected Officers) period following employment with the Corporation includes practicing law.
(iii) Post-Employment Activity As a Lawyer – I acknowledge that as counsel to the Corporation, I owe ethical and fiduciary obligations to the Corporation and that at least some of these obligations will continue even after my Termination Date with the Corporation. I agree that after my Termination Date I will comply fully with all applicable ethical and fiduciary obligations that I owe to the Corporation. To the extent permitted by applicable law, including but not limited to any applicable rules governing attorney conduct, I agree that I will not:
a. Represent any client in the same or a substantially related matter in which I represented the Corporation where the client’s interests are materially adverse to the Corporation; or
b. Disclose confidential information relating to my representation of the Corporation, including the disclosure of information that is to the disadvantage of the Corporation, except for information that is or becomes generally known.
The Corporation’s Senior Vice President, General Counsel, and Corporate Secretary or the General Tax Counsel, as applicable, will determine in their discretion whether an individual is employed by the Corporation in an attorney position.
(b) Non-Solicit – Without the express written consent of the Required Approver, during the two-year period following the Termination Date, I will not (i) cause or attempt to cause, directly or indirectly, the complete or partial loss of any contract in effect before the Termination Date between the Corporation and any customer, supplier, distributor or manufacturer of or to the Corporation with which I was responsible, in whole or in part, for soliciting, negotiating, implementing, managing, or overseeing or (ii) induce or attempt to induce, directly or indirectly, any person who is an employee of the Corporation with whom I worked or interacted with within two years prior to the Termination Date to cease employment with the Corporation in order to perform work or services for any entity other than the Corporation. I acknowledge and agree that the enforcement of this PECA pursuant to Section 1(b)(i) is necessary to protect, among other interests, the Corporation’s trade secrets and other Confidential or Proprietary Information, as defined by Section 1(c).
(c) Protection of Proprietary Information – Except to the extent required by law, following my Termination Date, I will have a continuing obligation to comply with the terms of any non-disclosure or similar agreements that I signed while employed by the Corporation committing to hold confidential the “Confidential or Proprietary Information” (as defined below) of the Corporation or any of its affiliates, subsidiaries, related companies, joint ventures, partnerships, customers, suppliers, partners, contractors or agents, in each case in accordance with the terms of such agreements. I will not use or disclose or allow the use or disclosure by others to any person or entity of Confidential or Proprietary Information of the Corporation or
Award Date: February 25, 2021
others to which I had access or that I was responsible for creating or overseeing during my employment with the Corporation. In the event I become legally compelled (by deposition, interrogatory, request for documents, subpoena, civil investigative demand or otherwise) to disclose any proprietary or confidential information, I will immediately notify the Corporation’s Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary as to the existence of the obligation and will cooperate with any reasonable request by the Corporation for assistance in seeking to protect the information. All materials to which I have had access, or which were furnished or otherwise made available to me in connection with my employment with the Corporation shall be and remain the property of the Corporation. For purposes of this PECA, “Confidential or Proprietary Information” means trade secrets, as defined by applicable law, and Proprietary Information within the meaning of CRX-015C (a copy of which has been made available to me), including but not limited to information that a person or entity desires to protect from unauthorized disclosure to third parties that can provide the person or entity with a business, technological, or economic advantage over its competitors, or which, if known or used by third parties or if used by the person’s or entity’s employees or agents in an unauthorized manner, might be detrimental to the person’s or entity’s interests. Confidential or Proprietary Information may include, but is not limited to:
(i) existing and contemplated business, marketing and financial business information such as business plans and methods, marketing information, cost estimates, forecasts, financial data, cost or pricing data, bid and proposal information, customer identification, sources of supply, contemplated product lines, proposed business alliances, and information about customers and competitors,

(iii) human resources and personnel information.
(d) No Disparagement – Following the Termination Date, I will not make any statements, whether verbal or written, that disparage or reasonably may be interpreted to disparage the Corporation or its directors, officers, employees, technology, products or services with respect to any matter whatsoever.
(e) Cooperation in Litigation and Investigations – Following the Termination Date, I will, to the extent reasonably requested, cooperate with the Corporation in any pending or future litigation (including alternative dispute resolution proceedings) or investigations in which the Corporation or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates is a party or is required or requested to provide testimony and regarding which, as a result of my employment with the Corporation, I reasonably could be expected to have knowledge or information relevant to the litigation or investigation. Notwithstanding any other provision of this PECA, nothing in this PECA shall affect my obligation to cooperate with any governmental inquiry or investigation or to give truthful testimony in court.
Award Date: February 25, 2021
(f) Communications with Regulatory Authorities – Nothing in this PECA prohibits or restricts me (or my attorney) from initiating communications directly with, responding to an inquiry from, or providing testimony before the Securities and Exchange Commission or any other federal or state regulatory authority regarding a possible securities law violation.
(g) Notice under the Defend Trade Secrets Act – Notwithstanding anything in this PECA to the contrary:
(i) I will not be held criminally or civilly liable under any federal or state trade secret law for any disclosure of a trade secret that is made: (1) in confidence to a federal, state, or local government official, either directly or indirectly, or to an attorney and solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law; or (2) in a complaint or other document that is filed under seal in a lawsuit or other proceeding.
(ii) If I file a lawsuit for retaliation by the Corporation for reporting a suspected violation of law, I may disclose the Corporation’s trade secrets to my attorney and use the trade secret information in the court proceeding if I (1) file any document containing the trade secret under seal; and (2) do not disclose the trade secret, except pursuant to court order.
2. Consideration and Acknowledgement. I acknowledge and agree that the benefits and compensation opportunities being made available to me under the Award Agreement are in addition to the benefits and compensation opportunities that otherwise are or would be available to me in connection with my employment by the Corporation and that the grant of the RSUs is expressly made contingent upon my agreements with the Corporation set forth in this PECA. I acknowledge that the scope and duration of the restrictions in Section 1 are necessary to be effective and are fair and reasonable in light of the value of the benefits and compensation opportunities being made available to me under the Award Agreement. I further acknowledge and agree that as a result of the high level executive and management positions I hold with the Corporation and the access to and extensive knowledge of the Corporation's Confidential or Proprietary Information, employees, suppliers and customers, these restrictions are reasonably required for the protection of the Corporation's legitimate business interests, including, but not limited to, the Corporation’s Confidential or Proprietary Information.
3. Remedies For Breach of Section 1; Additional Remedies of Clawback and Recoupment.
(a) I agree, upon demand by the Corporation, to forfeit, return or repay to the Corporation the “Benefits and Proceeds” (as defined below) in the event any of the following occur:
(i) I breach any of the covenants or agreements in Section 1;
(ii) The Corporation determines that either (a) my intentional misconduct or gross negligence, or (b) my failure to report another person’s intentional misconduct or gross negligence of which I had knowledge during the period I was employed by the Corporation, contributed to the Corporation having to restate all or a portion of its financial statements filed for any period with the Securities and Exchange Commission;
Award Date: February 25, 2021
(iii) The Corporation determines that I engaged in fraud, bribery, or any other illegal act, or that my intentional misconduct or gross negligence (including the failure to report another person’s intentional misconduct or gross negligence of which I had knowledge during the period I was employed by the Corporation) contributed to another person’s fraud, bribery, or other illegal act, which in any such case adversely affected the Corporation’s financial position or reputation;
(iv) The Corporation determines that my intentional misconduct or gross negligence caused severe reputational or financial harm to the Corporation;
(v) The Corporation determines that I misappropriated Confidential or Proprietary Information, as defined in Section 1(c), and I (A) intended to use the misappropriated Confidential or Proprietary Information to cause severe reputational or financial harm to the Corporation or (B) used the misappropriated Confidential or Proprietary Information in a manner that caused severe reputational or financial harm to the Corporation; or
(vi) Under such other circumstances specified by final regulation issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission entitling the Corporation to recapture or clawback “Benefits and Proceeds” (as defined below).
(b) The remedy provided in Section 3(a) shall not be the exclusive remedy available to the Corporation for any of the conduct described in Section 3(a) and shall not limit the Corporation from seeking damages or injunctive relief. For purposes of Section 3(a), a determination by the Corporation means, with respect to an Elected Officer, a determination by the Management Development and Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Corporation (the “Committee”) and, with respect to any other employee, a determination by a review committee consisting of the Senior Vice President, Human Resources, the Senior Vice President, Ethics and Enterprise Assurance, and the Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary (the “Review Committee”).
(c) For purposes of this Section 3, “Benefits and Proceeds” means (i) to the extent I own Stock issued in respect of vested RSUs, such Stock; (ii) to the extent I no longer own the shares of Stock of the Corporation issued in respect of the RSUs, cash in an amount equal to the greater of (x) the value of such Stock on the date the associated RSUs vested (which, unless otherwise determined by the Committee or the Review Committee, as applicable, shall be equal to the closing price of the shares of Stock as finally reported by the New York Stock Exchange on such date), and (y) the proceeds received in connection with the disposition of such Stock; and (iii) to the extent I have not earned the RSUs fully, all of my remaining rights, title or interest in my Award and any accrued dividend equivalents with respect thereto.
4. Injunctive Relief. I acknowledge that the Corporation’s remedies at law may be inadequate to protect the Corporation against any actual or threatened breach of the provisions of Section 1 or the conduct described in Section 3(a), and, therefore, without prejudice to any other rights and remedies otherwise available to the Corporation at law or in equity (including but not limited to, an action under Section 3(a)), the Corporation shall be entitled to the granting of injunctive relief in its favor and to specific performance without proof of actual damages and without the requirement of the posting of any bond or similar security.

Stock Ownership Requirements
Lockheed Martin’s Stock Ownership Requirements for Key Employees apply to all senior level positions of Vice President and above. This reflects the expectations of our major shareholders that management demonstrate its confidence in Lockheed Martin through a reasonable level of personal share ownership. This practice is consistent with other major U.S. corporations which link some portion of personal financial interests of key employees with those of shareholders.
Stock Ownership Requirements
|Title||Annual Base Pay Multiple|
|President and Chief Executive Officer||6 times|
|Chief Operating Officer; Chief Financial Officer||4 times|
|Executive Vice Presidents||3 times|
|Senior Vice Presidents||2 times|
|Other Elected Officers||2 times|
|Other Vice Presidents||1 times|
Satisfaction of Requirements
Covered employees may satisfy their ownership requirements with common stock in these categories:
•Shares owned directly.
•Shares owned by a spouse or a trust.
•Shares represented by monies invested in 401(k) Company Common Stock Funds or comparable plans.
•Share equivalents as represented by income deferred to the Company Stock Investment Option of the Deferred Management Incentive Compensation Plan (DMICP).
•Unvested Restricted Stock Units.
Key employees will be required to achieve the appropriate ownership level within five years and are expected to make continuous progress toward their target. Appointment to a new level will reset the five year requirement. Unexercised options prior to vesting are not counted toward meeting the guidelines.
Covered employees must retain net vested Restricted Stock Units and Performance Stock Units and the net shares resulting from any exercise of stock options if the ownership requirements are not yet satisfied.
Covered employees are asked to report annually on their progress toward attainment of their share ownership goals.
