Forward-Looking Statements

All statements other than historical facts may be forward-looking
statements; words such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “likely,” “projects,”
“financial guidance,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,”
“believes,” “estimates,” and similar expressions are used to identify
forward-looking statements. L3 and Harris caution investors that these
statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, many of which are
difficult to predict and generally beyond L3’s and Harris’ control, that
could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in,
or implied or projected by, the forward-looking information and
statements. In addition to factors previously disclosed in L3’s and
Harris’ reports filed with the SEC and those identified elsewhere in
this communication, the following factors, among others, could cause
actual results to differ materially from forward-looking statements or
historical performance: the occurrence of any event, change or other
circumstances that could give rise to the right of one or both of L3 and
Harris to terminate the definitive merger agreement between L3 and
Harris; the outcome of any legal proceedings that have been or may be
instituted against L3, Harris or their respective directors; the ability
to obtain regulatory approvals and satisfy other closing conditions to
the merger in a timely manner or at all, including the risk that
regulatory approvals required for the merger are not obtained or are
obtained subject to conditions that are not anticipated; delay in
closing the merger; difficulties and delays in integrating the L3 and
Harris businesses or fully realizing anticipated cost savings and other
benefits; business disruptions from the proposed merger that may harm
L3’s or Harris’ businesses, including current plans and operations; any
announcement relating to the proposed transaction could have adverse
effects on the ability of L3 or Harris to retain and hire key personnel
or maintain relationships with suppliers and customers, including the
U.S. government and other governments, or on L3’s or Harris’ operating
results and businesses generally; the risk that the announcement of the
proposed transaction could have adverse effects on the market price of
either or both of L3’s and Harris’ common stock and the uncertainty as
to the long-term value of the common stock of the combined company
following the merger; certain restrictions during the pendency of the
merger that may impact L3’s or Harris’ ability to pursue certain
business opportunities or strategic transactions; the business, economic
and political conditions in the markets in which L3 and Harris operate;
and events beyond L3’s and Harris’ control, such as acts of terrorism.

These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this
communication or as of the date they were made, and neither L3 nor
Harris undertakes any obligation to update forward-looking statements.
For a more detailed discussion of these factors, also see the
information under the captions “Cautionary Statement Regarding
Forward-Looking Statements” and “Risk Factors” in L3’s and Harris’ Joint
Proxy Statement/Prospectus that forms part of the Registration Statement
on Form S-4 filed by Harris and the captions “Risk Factors” and
“Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results
of Operations” in L3’s and Harris’ most recent reports on Form 10-K for
the years ended December 31, 2018 and June 29, 2018, respectively, and
any material updates to these factors contained in any of L3’s and
Harris’ subsequent and future filings.

As for the forward-looking statements that relate to future financial
results and other projections, actual results will be different due to
the inherent uncertainties of estimates, forecasts and projections and
may be better or worse than projected and such differences could be
material. Annualized, pro forma, projected and estimated numbers are
used for illustrative purpose only, are not forecasts and may not
reflect actual results. Given these uncertainties, you should not place
any reliance on these forward-looking statements.
