Raytheon Co. - Shareholder/Analyst Call

We will address the proxy in the order as they appear. As we consider these proposals, I'd like you to know that the Governance and Nominating Committee and the full board engage in a thorough review of the company's governance practices to ensure that they are sound and contemporary and that we remain focused on world-class governance practices. These practices are described in detail in our proxy and additional information is available on our website at

Now to the consideration of the first shareholder proposal, executive stock retention. Does John Chevedden or his representative wish to introduce and discuss the proposal? If so, could you please go to the microphone and begin by stating your name?

Shareholder Proposal 4 on proxy, executives to retain significant stock.

This policy shall apply to future grants and awards of equity pay and should address the permissibility of transactions such as hedging transactions, which are not sales but reduce the risk of loss to executives. This proposal asks for a retention policy starting as soon as possible.

Requiring senior executives to hold a significant portion of stock obtained through executive pay plans after employment termination would focus our executives on our company's long-term success.
