WASHINGTON, April 22 Lockheed Martin Corp
, the Pentagon's No. 1 supplier, said its bookings could
exceed $80 billion in 2014, bolstered by an expected F-35
fighter jet order valued at $3.5 billion in the second quarter,
and a $5 billion multiple-year order for C-130 transport planes
in the fourth quarter.
Lockheed Chief Financial Officer on Tuesday said he expected
about $10 billion in bookings in the second and third quarters
of 2014, with a spike to about $16 bln in fourth quarter.
"We still think we've got a chance to be above $80 billion
as we get towards the end of the year," Tanner told analysts on
an earnings call.
