Lockheed Takes Steps to Reshape Portfolio

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has announced actions aimed at reshaping its portfolio and strengthening performance over the long term.

“We periodically review our portfolio of capabilities and services against the demands of the environment to find ways to continuously provide the best, most affordable solutions for our customers, a secure future for our employees and value for our shareholders by assuring a sound strategic fit for each of our lines of business, ” said Lockheed Martin chairman & CEO Robert J. Stevens. “We completed such a review recently, factoring in the major changes we’ve seen in the global security environment, world economic conditions and the new priorities of the Administration. As a result, we are initiating several portfolio-shaping actions to strengthen our business over the long term.”

According to the firm, these actions include:

  • Plans to divest most of the Enterprise Integration Group (EIG) and Pacific Architects and Engineers, Inc. (PAE), two units under the company’s Information Systems & Global Services (IS&GS) business area. EIG provides high-quality, independent systems engineering and integration products and services to help customers optimize their resources and manage risk. PAE is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corporation with core competencies in mission readiness, peacekeeping, global infrastructure support and disaster relief activities. EIG and PAE combined produce approximately 3 percent of the Corporation’s revenue and less than 3 percent of its operating profit.
  • Realignment of two other IS&GS units-Readiness & Stability Operations (RSO) and Savi Technology, Inc.-with our Simulation, Training and Support (STS) unit under Electronic Systems. RSO is a leading provider of global services, offering rapid, cost-effective capabilities in logistics, mission operations support and readiness, engineering support services, and integration solutions. Savi Technology provides wireless tracking solutions that enable decision-support for managing assets, inventory and shipments. The new line of business will be named Global Training and Logistics, which describes the breadth of its products and services and the international scope of its business.
  • Renaming IS&GS to Information Systems & Global Solutions, replacing “Services” with “Solutions” to better reflect its focus and scope.
