    DEAR FELLOW SHAREHOLDERS , With our management team united behind a straightforward and keenly focused strategy of disciplined growth, Lockheed Martin was, and continues to be, distinguished by robust operational and financial performance in 2003. As a result, we enter 2004 well positioned to fulfill the potential and promise of this innovative corporation of 130,000 dedicated men and women. This strategy of disciplined growth is to increase shareholder value by: ■ Putting operational performance and customer satisfaction at the top of our priorities. ■ Maintaining consistent financial performance including strong cash flow and increasing financial strength and flexibility. ■ Focusing on profitable growth in our core markets of Defense, Homeland Security and Government Information Technology (IT). We also look forward to working with NASA to support America’s reinvigorated commitment to space exploration. Successful execution of this strategy was demonstrated in the numbers with a third straight year of positive momentum. Net sales in 2003 grew 20 percent to $31.8 billion. We have grown segment operating profit faster than sales, reflecting steadily improving margins. For the third consecutive year, orders remain strong with a backlog of $76.9 billion at the end of 2003. Our Aeronautics business enjoyed a record year for sales and our Electronic Systems business completed a seventh consecutive year of organic growth. We continued our record of consistent cash flow generation that reached $1.8 billion in 2003, and deployed cash to enhance shareholder value through: LO C K H E E D M A RT I N A N N UA L R E P O RT 2 0 0 3 — 3 ■ Debt reduction. We reduced debt by $1.4 billion in 2003 and $3.7 billion since 2000. Our ratio of debt to total capital, at 48 percent, is now within our goal of 40 to 50 percent. We also restructured about $1 billion of debt to achieve lower interest expense. ■ Share repurchase. We have been buying back our shares periodically. Since we started our share repurchase activity about a year ago, we have retired approximately 11 million shares. ■ Dividends. Financial flexibility and vitality are also reflected in our doubling the annual dividend rate from 44 cents to 88 cents per common share. ■ Acquisitions. Growing business in our core markets is key to competing successfully, and we have made selective acquisitions to continue strengthening our position in defense and civil government IT. Lockheed Martin last year completed strategic transactions with ACS and Orincon, and announced the proposed acquisition of The Titan Corporation. We expect these transactions will bring additional capabilities, a talented workforce and customers. These transactions will help us be more competitive in the defense and civil government IT markets. About 25 percent of our sales are from IT solutions and services to defense, intelligence and civil government agencies. The Titan acquisition, when completed and integrated with Orincon, will bolster our core capabilities in critical intelligence, knowledge management and data fusion that are applicable to national defense. In the ACS transaction, we acquired the defense and most of the civil government IT business of ACS, while ACS acquired Lockheed Martin’s commercial IT business.

    Financial performance and portfolio shaping are only part of the picture; Lockheed Martin consistently works to be a trusted and valued partner with our customers in the United States and worldwide. Consequently, last year we registered some impressive operational achievements: ■ In 2003, the F/A-22 team continued to address avionics stability challenges, operational testing began on schedule, high quality aircraft are being delivered, and the team continues to make solid progress in the transition from development to production. ■ In 2003, Lockheed Martin saw a resurgence in its space business with 11 new launches awarded and orders placed for five new commercial satellites. ■ The Patriot Advanced Capability (PAC-3) missile, the world’s first operational weapon system to employ hit-to-kill technology, made its operational debut during Operation Iraqi Freedom, defending troops and installations against ballistic missile threats. ■ We recorded two successful launches of our Atlas V in 2003. In all, there have been 68 consecutive suc- cessful Atlas launches. NASA also selected the Atlas V to launch the first space probe to Pluto in 2006. ■ The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter successfully completed its Preliminary Design Review and is proceeding toward the Design Integration Maturity Review this spring and the Critical Design Review in 2005. ■ The Spitzer Space Telescope we built for NASA was launched and began providing extraordinary infrared images of the universe. ■ The U.S. Air Force gave operational certification to the stealthy Joint Air to Surface Standoff Missile. ■ We received a vote of confidence from the U.S. Air Force and Marine Corps for the C-130J airlifter, which was reflected in a multi-year acquisition of 60 aircraft. We reorganized our business areas last year to better address the changing and increasingly complex needs of our defense customers, especially in the critical area of Information Superiority. 4 — LO C K H E E D M A RT I N A N N UA L R E P O RT 2 0 0 3 By creating a new business area, Integrated Systems & Solutions, we are leveraging technical expertise across the breadth of Lockheed Martin to address our customers’ requirements for highly integrated, networked solutions. Integrated Systems & Solutions provides customers with the benefit of focused collaboration for solutions that are technically sound, cost effective, and that enhance operational performance. As part of this effort, we are creating the Global Vision Network to enable collaboration among cus- tomers and Lockheed Martin. The central node of this high-bandwidth engineering network is the Global Vision Integration Center in Suffolk, Virginia, which will lead our development, simulation and analysis of network-centric solutions for the Department of Defense and other national security customers. Without the people of Lockheed Martin, the achievements of the past year would not have been possible. We are proud of the men and women who bring a passion for invention to their work each and every day. Our efforts to recruit and retain the best people continue apace. A diverse and talented workforce is fundamentally important to our future competitiveness. Also fundamental to this corporation are the values that inspire our management team. Ethics is not simply an add-on to our management strategy; it is inherent in the Lockheed Martin culture through regular training at all levels of the organization. We also apply these principles to meeting the highest standards of corporate governance and transparency in our financial disclosure practices. LM21 represents the commitment of all our employees to Operating Excellence and is based on the two pillars of superior development processes (and process improvement), and lean manufacturing techniques.

    Lockheed Martin’s values are translated into action through our community and educational activities that help ensure that we as a corporate citizen give back to the communities where we work and live. The people of Lockheed Martin stood as one company in our response to the shootings in Meridian, Mississippi, and assisted those families affected by the tragedy. A year after the loss of the Space Shuttle Columbia, we honor the memory of the heroes who flew aboard that mission and stand with NASA in their commitment to manned and unmanned space exploration to the moon and beyond. As a corporation with a long history of serving the armed forces of the United States, we are acutely aware of the sacrifices our servicemen and women make every day in the defense of freedom. Our manage- ment team and the entire corporation salute those who are serving abroad and in the United States, including the nearly 300 Lockheed Martin employees now on active military duty, as well as the Lockheed Martin employees working in Iraq and worldwide. In summary, we are confident your company is well positioned for the future with: ■ Leadership in Defense, Homeland Security, Government Information Technology and Services growth markets, as well as space systems and exploration. ■ A broad portfolio of capabilities and programs that provide total systems solutions for customer challenges. ■ A strong backlog plus substantial new business opportunities. ■ Consistent financial performance and strong cash flow. ■ Cash deployment to enhance shareholder value. Lockheed Martin’s reputation as a dynamic enterprise serving our customers’, our nation’s and our allies’ most important priorities will be enhanced by adhering closely to a strategy that focuses on financial and operational performance, as well as the highest standards of business ethics. At the same time, we LO C K H E E D M A RT I N A N N UA L R E P O RT 2 0 0 3 — 5 remain keenly aware of opportunities to grow our core businesses. On a closing note, I recently announced my retirement as CEO, effective in August 2004. My 37 years with Lockheed Martin have been filled with challenge, wonder and tremendous gratification. The personal pride I feel for this company is exceeded only by the deep appreciation I have for its amazing 130,000 employees. The consolidation of the defense industry has led us through a challenging period in our history. All of you — our shareholders, customers and employees — have seen our corporation meet those demands and become stronger as a result. Having served seven years at the helm, it is now time for new leadership to take us to the next level of performance. Bob Stevens will assume leadership of Lockheed Martin upon my retirement and his energy, skill and business acumen will continue to serve you well. I am sure Bob will be a great leader, bringing fresh thinking and perspective to our company and our industry. I leave confident that the future of Lockheed Martin is indeed bright and the best years are ahead. March 1, 2004 Vance D. Coffman Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

    PARTNERING TO HELP CUSTOMERS MEET THEIR DEFINING MOMENTS TM U.S. ARMED SERVICES and allied forces apply cutting-edge technologies from Lockheed Martin that enable them to turn data into knowledge, and knowledge into action. These systems link assets in space, in the air, at sea and on land with the goal of giving commanders the full picture of the battlespace in real-time. Information Superiority is the essence of the Department of Defense’s drive to Net-Centric Operations.

    LOCKHEED MARTIN’S CAPABILITIES are aligned strongly with the highest priorities of our customers, which are mainly large U.S. and allied government agencies responsible for their nations’ most important challenges. Whether the mission is defense, homeland security or managing complex civil government Information Technology (IT) systems, our customers face a continuing series of defining moments. These range from equipping military forces with transformational capabilities that will help them meet a new spectrum of threats, to strengthening defenses against terrorism while preserving civil liberties, to providing numerous civil government services that are vital to the functioning of society. We recognize the importance of creating value for our customers. That means partnering with our customers and with companies in the United States and from around the world to deliver the advanced technology solutions our customers require to fulfill their most critical missions. We strive to earn a reputation as the partner of choice, supplier of choice and employer of choice in the global marketplace. LO C K H E E D M A RT I N A N N UA L R E P O RT 2 0 0 3 — 7 WE NEVER FORGET who we’re working for, and AS A TRUSTED and valued partner with government that includes the pilots of the F/A-22 Raptor. and industry, we take seriously the challenge of Built with unprecedented stealth, supercruise securing the homeland.

    RECOGNIZING THAT THE COMPLEX issues facing our Defense, Homeland Security and Government IT customers require integrated solutions, Lockheed Martin embraces the challenge by taking a whole-system approach. As a lead systems integrator, Lockheed Martin is adept at combining the best of technologies and teams of dedicated people — supporting Net-Centric military and Citizen-Centered civil government agencies. That includes defense electronics that raise the capabilities of platforms such as surface ships, submarines, helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. We are combining industry teams, information systems and advanced technologies on the Deepwater Project for the U.S. Coast Guard as it fulfills its mission of protecting America’s coastlines. Deepwater will recapitalize the Coast Guard by upgrading ships, aircraft, logistics, and command and control systems. As a leader in E-Government solutions, we at Lockheed Martin apply our extensive Information Technology capability across the breadth of more than a dozen federal agencies that serve the American people, such as the Social Security Administration, which processes and delivers 50 million checks a month.

    AT LOCKHEED MARTIN , we are driven by a passion for invention — the ability to provide a new perspective, to look at any problem, any possible solution, from all sides. We partner with the U.S. Department of Defense and allied nations to provide the advanced technology they need to deter aggression, or to project power, achieve air dominance and engage targets precisely in the event of combat. Defining moments for our customers can come when law enforcement officers, securing the homeland from the threats of terrorism and crime, can match a fingerprint out of a database of 400 million in a matter of minutes. The work we do touches the lives of millions of citizens, such as when the governments of the United States, United Kingdom and Canada conduct and analyze their censuses. Crucial government decisions on schools, roads and other services depend on a reliable count, and Lockheed Martin delivers the advanced optical character recognition and computing technologies to address that vital requirement. With inventive solutions, Lockheed Martin is helping the Environmental Protection Agency to develop an automated and integrated approach to managing the federal government’s rule-making function in support of the President’s Management Agenda.

    DELIVERING DISCIPLINED PERFORMANCE TM REDEFINING WHAT IS POSSIBLE is a term that well describes America’s exploration of space for the sake of scientific discovery, defense, telecommunications and a better understanding of our own planet Earth, including its weather and natural resources. We will launch aboard our Atlas V vehicle (interior shown above) the first-ever probe to Pluto in 2006.

    AS A CORPORATE CITIZEN , we are a trusted and valued partner with the communities in which we work. That includes joining with our schools and communities in promoting math and science education. Lockheed Martin supports science, math, computer sciences and engineering excellence, from elementary education through the university level, with grants and locally based initiatives. The men and women of Lockheed Martin recognize that the foundation of a strong and free people starts at the local level — where we live and work. We are more than a collection of offices and facilities; we are neighbors, students, mentors, coaches and parents. Building the advanced technology products and services that meet the needs of governments worldwide is part of the picture of Lockheed Martin. We are also a company of people working to build a better world by volunteering in our communities.

We expect this mix of contract types to contin- ue in the short term, and it may affect the year-to-year comparisons of segment margins and the operating results of the lines of business within Electronic Systems. The Space Systems business segment is a key supplier of space solutions, primarily to our U.S. Government customers. Satellites and Strategic & Defensive Missile System activities, primarily for our U.S. Government customers, are expected to experience steady growth as we work on our existing backlog and any new awards that we may receive. However, the com- mercial satellite and launch vehicle industries continue to be very competitive.

    Lockheed Martin Corporation The FAS/CAS pension adjustment represents the difference between pension expense or income calculated for financial report- ing purposes in accordance with FAS 87, and pension costs calcu- lated and funded in accordance with U.S. Government CAS, which are reflected in the business segment results. CAS is a major factor in determining our pension funding requirements, and governs the extent of allocability and recoverability of pension costs on govern- ment contracts. The CAS expense is recovered through the pricing of our products and services on U.S. Government contracts, and therefore recognized in segment net sales. The results of operations of the segments only include pension expense as determined and funded in accordance with CAS rules.

In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and proce- dures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and management necessarily is required to use its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Also, we have investments in certain unconsolidated entities. As we do not control or manage those entities, our disclosure controls and procedures with respect to those entities are necessarily substantially more limited than those we maintain with respect to our consolidated subsidiaries. 39

    Lockheed Martin Corporation MANAGEMENT’S RESPONSIBILITY FOR FINANCIAL REPORTING The management of Lockheed Martin prepared and is responsible for the consolidated financial statements and all related financial information contained in this Annual Report. The consolidated financial statements, which include amounts based on esti- mates and judgments, have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. In recognition of its responsibility for the integrity and objectivity of data in the financial statements, the Corporation main- tains a system of internal controls over financial reporting designed and intended to provide reasonable assurance, based on an appropriate cost-benefit relationship, that assets are safeguarded and transactions are properly executed and recorded. The Corporation also maintains a system of disclosure controls and procedures which includes controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is gathered and communicated to management for timely consideration of disclosure. An environment that provides for an appropriate level of con- trol consciousness is maintained and monitored and includes examinations by an internal audit staff, examinations by the inde- pendent auditors in connection with their reviews of interim financial information and their annual audit, and audits by the Defense Contract Audit Agency of our compliance with federal government rules and regulations applicable to contracts with the U.S. Government. In addition, a Disclosure Controls Committee assists in monitoring and evaluating disclosure controls and procedures, and to review interim and annual reports of financial information filed with the SEC for accuracy and completeness. Essential to the Corporation’s internal control system is management’s dedication to the highest standards of integrity, ethics and social responsibility. To support these standards, management has issued the Code of Ethics and Business Conduct (the Code) and developed policy statements that cover, among other topics, maintaining accurate and complete accounting records, proper business practices, regulatory compliance, potentially conflicting outside interests of employees, and adherence to high standards of conduct and practices in dealings with customers, including the U.S. Government. The Code provides for a help line that employees can use to confidentially or anonymously communicate to the Corporation’s ethics office complaints or concerns about accounting, internal control or auditing matters. These matters, if requested by the employee, must be forwarded directly to the Corporation’s Audit and Ethics Committee. The importance of ethical behavior is regularly communicated to all employees through the distribu- tion of the Code, and through ongoing education and review programs designed to create a strong compliance environment. The Audit and Ethics Committee of the Board of Directors is composed of seven independent directors. This Committee meets periodically with the independent auditors, internal auditors and management to review their activities. Both the independent audi- tors and the internal auditors have unrestricted access to meet with members of the Audit and Ethics Committee, with or without management representatives present. The Audit and Ethics Committee is responsible for the selection, retention and compensation of the independent auditors. The consolidated financial statements included in this Annual Report have been audited by Ernst & Young LLP, whose report follows. Vance D. Coffman Christopher E. Kubasik Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Robert J. Stevens Rajeev Bhalla President and Chief Operating Officer Vice President and Controller 40

    Lockheed Martin Corporation REPORT OF ERNST & YOUNG LLP, INDEPENDENT AUDITORS Board of Directors and Stockholders Lockheed Martin Corporation We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Lockheed Martin Corporation as of December 31, 2003 and 2002, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2003. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Corporation’s management. Our respon- sibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material mis- statement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial state- ments. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Lockheed Martin Corporation at December 31, 2003 and 2002, and the consolidated results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2003, in conformity with accounting principles gen- erally accepted in the United States. As discussed in Note 1 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements, in 2002 the Corporation adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 142, “Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets.” McLean, Virginia January 27, 2004 41
