The senior notes are being issued in two tranches – $350 million of three-year senior notes bearing interest at a fixed rate of 1.50% per year and maturing on May 28, 2017, and $650 million of 10-year senior notes bearing interest at a fixed rate of 3.95% per year and maturing on May 28, 2024.

The senior notes are being offered in a registered offering pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

L-3 Communications intends to use a portion of the net proceeds from the offering to fund the conversion payment obligation and/or the redemption price of the company’s 3.00% Convertible Contingent Debt Securities due August 1, 2035.

The senior notes are being offered pursuant to L-3 Communications’ existing shelf registration statement, which became automatically effective upon filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
