FORM 425

Filed by Leidos Holdings, Inc.

Pursuant to Rule 425 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended

and deemed filed pursuant to Rule 14a-12

under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended

Subject Company: Leidos Holdings, Inc.

(Commission File No. 001-33072)



    Hello. I’m Jim Reagan, Chief Financial Officer for Leidos. This is an exciting time for our company. We have had a historical year, winning several key programs that were critical to meeting our business objectives while opening doors for new strategic opportunities down the road.


    We also just announced the signing of a new deal to combine Leidos and Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems & Global Solutions business, which I know has created quite a buzz throughout the company.


    I wanted to take a moment to share some context about why this is a positive step for this organization as well as clarify a few misconceptions and rumors.


    First, this is a transformational opportunity to grow the depth and scope of our existing capabilities and expand into new markets that were once considered off limits for us.


    This new organization brings with it a new set of capabilities and venues to compete for business on an entirely new level which means greater opportunities for Leidos employees.


    Those are just a few of the many positives that we will experience as a result of this deal. However, I realize it’s our human nature to initially react with a great deal caution for possible risks associated with a change of this magnitude. The best cure for this fear of course, is information.


    The reason for me to reach out to you is to directly address some of the inaccurate rumors that may be floating around your office space as well as clarify some misconceptions about what this really means for you and your financial stability with the organization.


    Lockheed Martin is not acquiring Leidos. Leidos is acquiring a specific, complementary piece of Lockheed Martin’s business in exchange for 77M shares of Leidos. Lockheed Martin will continue to operate as a separate company following the close of this transaction.


    Part of this confusion is related to shareholder percentages and company ownership. The terms of the reverse morris trust transaction state that Lockheed shareholders must own 50.5% of the company and Leidos must own 49.5% in order to make the transaction tax-free to both organizations. Lockheed Martin will not own 50.5% of the company—but the shares issued in exchange for IS&GS will be distributed to Lockheed Martin shareholders.

    There are also a lot of questions related to Leidos stock and the confusion over the term “diluted stock.” Essentially what this means is shares that represent your ownership in the company today will be adjusted to reflect the increased value of the company. Anyone who owns stock in Leidos today, owns stock in a $5B company, after the transaction closes, a shareholder will own stock in a company with revenues of about $10 billion, so the percentage must be adjusted to reflect that change in value. Your value isn’t changing, the pie is just bigger.


    As a publicly traded company, we must always balance making decisions in the best interest of the business and our customers, as well as the interests of our shareholders both inside and outside the company.


    Throughout this transition our most important asset is you, the hard-working employees delivering quality service to our customers each day, generating revenue that allows our company leaders the agility to make these important strategic decisions for our future.


    A dedicated integration team has been established within Leidos to oversee every aspect of the transaction until its anticipated closing later this year.


    This team is comprised of representatives from each functional area as well as direct lines of business so each segment has a voice and is being thoroughly analyzed throughout the process. In addition to facilitating the deal for all of us, these individuals are tasked with keeping everyone up-to-date with as much information as possible throughout the journey. This information will be available on the Prism Hub and is available to all employees.


    In the meantime, we need all of you to continue focusing on our current business and delivering quality service to our customer.


    Thank you very much.
