Dear Raytheon colleague,

Iam pleased to announce we have reached a significant milestone in our proposed merger with United Technologies Corporation.

Today, Raytheon and UTCshareowners formally approved our merger of equals during our respective special meetings.

With this step, we remain on track to close the merger duringthe first half of 2020. We are continuing to work closely with regulatory authorities in the U.S. and other jurisdictions to secure final approvals. At the same time, our integration and consolidation planning teams are preparing for a seamless Day1 as Raytheon Technologies.

We will continue to keep the team informed as we progress on our merger-related milestones. The oneRTN Merger InformationHub is being regularly updated with new information relative to benefits and frequently asked questions.

As I think about our future as RaytheonTechnologies, I am excited by the fact that we are better together. Combining Raytheon and UTC will make us much more competitive and resilient. We will have a very solid technological base and a very strong financial base; with projected 2019pro-forma sales of about $74 billion and a team of 180,000 people on the ground in more than 50 countries. Bottom line: with this diversification and scale, we will be better positioned to achieve success in growth markets and withstand businesscycles.

Change does not come without hard work. So I want to thank you and the entire Raytheon team for what you do each and every day – whether itbe helping establish this merger of equals or continuing to meet our commitments to our customers and each other. Your focus on the task at hand is much appreciated.

Respectfully,

Tom
