The Company does not make independent political expenditures, including electioneering communications, in support of the election or defeat of a particular candidate independent of that candidate or his/her campaign committee. Since we are a for-profit corporation and have contracts with the federal government, by law we are also prohibited from using Company money to make these kinds of expenditures. Therefore, we do not make independent political expenditures from our PAC or Company funds as a matter of Company policy.
