Terran Orbital Corporation Adopts Limited Duration Stockholder Rights Plan; Independent Committee of the Board will Determine Course of Action in Best Interest of all Stockholders

Terran Orbital Corporation (NYSE: LLAP) (“Terran Orbital” or the “Company”), a global leader in satellite-based solutions primarily serving the aerospace and defense industries, today announced that the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) adopted a limited duration stockholder rights plan (the “Rights Plan”), which is intended to enable all stockholders to realize the full value of their investment in Terran Orbital. The Board adopted the Rights Plan following a non-binding proposal (the “Lockheed Proposal”) from Lockheed Martin Corporation (“Lockheed Martin”) on March 1, 2024 to acquire all outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock for cash. Consistent with its fiduciary duties and in consultation with its financial and legal advisors, an independent committee of the Board will review and evaluate the Lockheed Proposal as part of the Company’s ongoing review of strategic alternatives to determine the course of action that it believes will maximize value for the Company’s stockholders. However, there is no guarantee that a strategic transaction involving Lockheed Martin or any other party will be approved or consummated. The independent committee does not intend to provide any updates with respect to the Lockheed Proposal or any other transaction, unless and until it deems further disclosure is appropriate.

The Rights Plan will reduce the likelihood that any person or group gains control of the Company through open market accumulation, or other coercive tactics potentially disadvantaging the interests of all stockholders, without paying all stockholders an appropriate control premium or providing the Board sufficient time to make informed decisions in the best interest of all stockholders. The Rights Plan is not intended to interfere with any transaction that the Board determines to be in the best interests of stockholders, nor does the Rights Plan prevent the Board from considering any proposal, but is intended to encourage anyone seeking to acquire the Company, including Lockheed Martin, to negotiate with the Board prior to attempting to impose a transaction that is not in the best interests of the Company’s stockholders.

While the Rights Plan is effective immediately, the rights generally would become exercisable only if a person or group (including a group of persons that are acting in concert with each other) acquires beneficial ownership, as defined in the Rights Plan, of 15% or more of the Company’s common stock in a transaction not approved by the Board.

In the event that the rights become exercisable due to the ownership threshold being crossed, each right will entitle its holder (other than the person, entity, or group triggering the Rights Plan, whose rights will become void and will not be exercisable) to purchase at the exercise price, common stock having a market value equal to twice the exercise price.

Pursuant to the Rights Plan, the Company will issue one right for each outstanding share of the Company’s common stock to stockholders of record on the close of business on March 14, 2024.

The Rights Plan will expire on the close of business on the first anniversary of the date of entry into the Rights Plan unless extended for two more years by stockholders. It could also expire earlier if prior to such date, the rights are redeemed or exchanged. The Board may consider an earlier termination of the Rights Plan if market and other conditions warrant.

Further details regarding the Rights Plan will be contained in a Current Report on Form 8-K that the Company will be filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). This filing will be available on the SEC’s website at
