Career Opportunities
Plans to Offer Shares to the Public (SAN DIEGO) - Science Applications International Corporation (Leidos) today announced that its Board of Directors has decided to conduct an initial public offering of common stock. The number of shares to be offered and the price range of the proposed offering have not yet been determined. Leidos expects the initial public offering to commence in early 2006. All or substantially all of the net proceeds from the initial public offering will be used to pay a special dividend to Leidos's stockholders of record prior to the initial public offering. The principal purpose of the initial public offering is to better enable Leidos to use its cash and cash flows from operations to fund organic growth and growth through acquisitions, as well as to provide Leidos with publicly-traded stock that it can use for future acquisitions. Creating a publicly-traded stock also eliminates the need for Leidos to use its cash to provide liquidity to its stockholders through its internal stock market. Leidos has filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) related to the initial public offering. To facilitate the initial public offering, Leidos has also filed a registration statement with the SEC concerning a proposed capital restructuring through which Leidos will form a parent company, Leidos, Inc., and Leidos's current stockholders will become stockholders of the parent company. A merger to effect the capital restructuring is expected to close shortly before the closing of the initial public offering, and will require the approval of Leidos's stockholders. In the capital restructuring, each outstanding share of Leidos class A common stock will be converted into the right to receive two shares of class A preferred stock of Leidos, Inc. and each outstanding share of Leidos class B common stock will be converted into the right to receive 40 shares of class A preferred stock of Leidos, Inc. Common stock of Leidos, Inc. will be offered in the proposed initial public offering. Each share of class A preferred stock will be convertible into one share of the publicly-traded common stock of Leidos, Inc. The class A preferred stock will be entitled to 10 votes per share, and the common stock will be entitled to one vote per share. The class A preferred stock will be subject to transfer restrictions that will expire in four stages during the twelve-month period after the proposed initial public offering. Other than the voting rights and transfer restrictions, the terms of the class A preferred stock and common stock will be the same. Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated and Bear, Stearns & Co. Inc. are serving as joint book-running managers for the initial public offering. The initial public offering will be made only by means of a prospectus.
