         On December 20, 2000, pursuant to an agreement dated November 1, 2000
(the "LMC Agreement"), the Company, through Illinois Superconductor Canada
Corporation ("ISC Canada"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, acquired
certain assets related to the Adaptive Notch Filtering ("ANF") business unit of
Lockheed Martin Canada, Inc. ("LMC"), in exchange for 2,500,000 shares of common
stock of the Company (the "Transaction"). LMC has developed a technology
designed to monitor and suppress sources of narrow-band interference that can
reduce quality and capacity of CDMA-based wireless systems (the "ANF Business").
In connection with the Transaction, Daniel Spoor, the President of Lockheed
Martin Canada Inc., has been appointed to be a member of the Company's Board of

         Pursuant to the LMC Agreement, ISC Canada purchased inventory and
equipment, books and records and other assets necessary to operate the ANF
Business. ISC Canada also purchased all of LMC's right, title and interest in
and to certain patents, patent applications and other intellectual property
listed in the LMC Agreement or necessary for the conduct of the ANF Business.
Pursuant to the LMC Agreement, ISC Canada purchased and agreed to assume all of
LMC's rights and interests in a purchase contract with Bell Mobility Canada
("Bell Mobility"), pursuant to which ISC Canada will develop and sell ANF
products to Bell Mobility.

         In connection with the Transaction, pursuant to a Registration Rights
Agreement between the Company, ISC Canada, and LMC ("Registration Rights
Agreement"), the Company has agreed to file, within 60 days of the closing of
the Transaction (the "Closing"), or within 30 days after LMC delivers certain
audited financial statements to the Company, whichever is later, a registration
statement with respect to the shares of the Company's Common Stock issued to
LMC, and to use commercially reasonable best efforts to cause such registration
statement to be promptly declared effective. Each of the Company and ISC Canada,
on the one hand, and LMC, on the other, will, with limitations, indemnify and
hold the other harmless against any damages to which it becomes liable under
federal or state securities laws as a result of the other's acts or omissions.
If, more than one year after the Closing, the Company proposes to register any
of its securities under the Securities Act, and the registration form to be used
may be used for the registration of the Company's common stock for resale, the
Company will promptly notify LMC of its intention to effect such a registration
and, subject to certain limitations, will include in the registration the shares
of Company common stock issued to LMC pursuant to the LMC Agreement which may
not be resold by the holder thereof under Rule 144.

         Pursuant to the LMC Agreement, LMC has agreed to indemnify ISC Canada,
the Company, their respective Affiliates (as defined in the LMC Agreement) and
their respective directors, officers, employees and agents against, and to hold
them harmless from, certain liabilities arising out of any breach by LMC of any
representation, warranty or covenant of LMC in the LMC Agreement or any other
document delivered by LMC pursuant to the LMC Agreement, to the extent that and
only for so long as such representation, warranty or covenant survives the

         The Company and ISC Canada have agreed to indemnify LMC and certain
related parties for certain liabilities arising out of the Company's or ISC
Canada's breach of any representation, warranty or covenant of the Company in
the LMC Agreement or any other document delivered by the Company or ISC Canada
pursuant to the LMC Agreement, to the extent that and only for so long as such
representation, warranty or covenant survives the Closing.

         Except as described in the next following sentence, each party's
liability with respect to any breach by such party of a representation, warranty
or covenant contained in the LMC Agreement which survives the Closing shall be
limited to $3,500,000. This limitation of liability will not apply in respect of

any representation or warranty which was known by a party to be untrue as of the
date of the LMC Agreement or which became untrue as a result of an unlawful,
grossly negligent or intended violation of the provisions of the Agreement by
such party or any of its Affiliates.

         The description of the Transaction contained herein is qualified in its
entirety by reference to the LMC Agreement and the related Schedules, Exhibits
and Attachments, all of which are included as exhibits to our current report on
Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 4, 2001.

         The Transaction is subject to certain risks, including the risk that
the Company will not be able to successfully integrate the ANF Business into its
existing business.
