07:43 EDTLMTLockheed Martin to acquire Sikorsky Aircraft business for $9B
United Technologies (UTX) announced that it has reached an agreement to sell its Sikorsky Aircraft business to Lockheed Martin (LMT) for $9B in cash. The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions and adjustments, is projected to close by year-end or in the Q1 of FY16. Proceeds from the sale are expected to be used to fund additional share repurchase to offset the earnings impact related to the sale. The company will discuss this transaction at its previously scheduled conference call with investors. In addition, UTC's Board of Directors has authorized a share repurchase program for up to 75M shares of the company's common stock, which would be worth approximately $8.3B based on the NYSE closing price of UTC shares on July 17. The new authorization replaces a previous program, approved in February 2013, which was nearing completion. The precise timing and amount of repurchases will be determined based on the company's evaluation of market conditions and other factors, and the program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

On July 20, 2015, Lockheed Martin also announced that it will conduct a strategic review of the government IT infrastructure services business within its IS&GS business segment and the technical services business within its MFC business segment. The programs to be reviewed represent approximately $6B in estimated 2015 annual sales and approximately 17,000 employees. The Lockheed Martin expects the strategic review will result in a spin-off to its shareholders or sale of these businesses. The IS&GS programs that are not included in the strategic review are mostly focused on defense and intelligence customers and will be realigned into the Lockheed Martin's other business segments following completion of the review. The Corporation expects to complete the strategic review in 2015. While the Lockheed Martin performs its strategic review, it will maintain the current operating and reporting structure and will continue to report the financial results of the government IT infrastructure services and technical services businesses in its continuing operations.
