Lockheed Martin Corporation
disclosed that The Chase Manhattan Bank notified the Corporation
on Friday, June 30, 2000 that Globalstar Telecommunications
failed to repay borrowings of $250 million under a revolving credit agreement
on which Lockheed Martin is a partial guarantor. It is Lockheed Martin’s
understanding that Globalstar drew under this facility earlier this month.

In fulfillment of its contractual obligations under the guarantee, the
Corporation has paid $207 million, including applicable interest and fees to
the bank. Lockheed Martin is entitled to repayment by Globalstar of the
amounts paid under the guarantee and has not yet reached agreement with
respect to the form and timing of repayment.

Loral Space & Communications has paid $57 million to Lockheed
Martin. That payment is based on a separate indemnification agreement made by
Loral to Lockheed Martin.

The Corporation is not changing its previous estimate of generating at
least $500 million in free cash for the year 2000. The Corporation also
affirms its previous year 2000 earnings estimate, excluding nonrecurring and
unusual items, of $1.05 per share. The Corporation is evaluating the need for
any pretax, nonrecurring charge against earnings in the 2nd quarter 2000.
