               The following interview occurred on April 29, 2002

Kent Kresa Interviewed on `Market Week'

On April 29, 2002, Kent Kresa, Northrop Grumman chairman and CEO, appeared on
CNBC's "Market Week" to discuss the DD(X) contract and Northrop Grumman's offer
to acquire TRW Inc.

"Market Week" provides investors with valuable insight into the week ahead,
featuring market moving catalysts, company profiles, stock picks and interviews
with high-profile CEOs and money managers. The half-hour program is hosted by
Maria Bartiromo live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

BARTIROMO: And up next on MARKET WEEK, Northrop Grumman, the CEO is with us
live. It is proceeding with its $6.8 billion hostile bid to acquire TRW, what
will it mean for Northrop and shareholders?

BARTIROMO: Well, defense stocks have certainly been among the stronger
performers this past year, and it's no surprise as Washington gears up for a
spending spree that could last years. Northrop Grumman, the nation's
third-largest defense contractor, has been strategically positioning itself for
that windfall with several key acquisitions. Its latest now-hostile target,
TRW has rejected two Northrop [Grumman] offers and has put the company up for
auction. This Friday, TRW shareholders will meet to vote on whether to allow
Northrop [Grumman's] bid to proceed, the latest of many such hurdles to clear.
And late today, news that Northrop [Grumman] has landed a new contract with the

BARTIROMO: Joining me now from Los Angeles, Kent Kresa, chairman and chief
executive officer of Northrop Grumman. Mr. Kresa, good to have you with us.

KENT KRESA: Great to be here, Maria.

BARTIROMO: Tell us about the new Navy contract you announced late today.

KRESA: Wow, it's really important. It's a $2.9 billion program to design and
prototype the next DD(X) ship, which is a class of non-nuclear ships that will
be produced by the Navy probably for the next 20 or 30 years.

BARTIROMO: Is there a discrepancy there, sir? Because we have been reporting
$1.5 billion, which is what the news wires and your press release had said. What
is the $2.9 billion figure?

KRESA: The $2.9 billion is the contract. We're the prime contractor. About 45
percent of that contract [approximately $1.5 billion] is going to our major team
member, Raytheon. And, of course, we have the rest. So I think [the numbers are]
in sync. It is a $2.9 billion contract.

BARTIROMO: OK, just to clarify.

KRESA: Right.

BARTIROMO: Tell me about this Friday's vote. How confident are you that you'll
prevail in the vote on Friday for TRW, and why?

KRESA: Well, we hope that it will come out in the way we've talked. The
important thing is, as we've said for a long time, that we need to do due
diligence. And the vote is really to determine whether or not we can continue to
go forward with our tender offer. If it's voted down by the TRW shareholders,
then, of course [the] tender is no longer valid or won't be valid, because
within Ohio law we cannot buy more than 20 percent of the company. So this is a
critical vote. And the important thing is to really keep the pressure on the TRW
management and the board to allow us to do due diligence. We have tried to do
that. We have no trouble with their confidentiality agreement along with the
confidentiality agreement they also want a standstill for three years. We can't
do that and it's not right for the TRW shareholders. So we think they're going
to vote with us.

BARTIROMO: Now your initial offer in February was for $47 a share; the latest
bid [is] $53 a share, even though TRW's stock has been trading above that level.
Today, it closed at $54.54. Doesn't that seem to reinforce TRW's claim that the
offer is, in fact, too low and that possibly there are other suitors out there?

KRESA: We, frankly, don't know what the price should be, that's why everything
is subject to due diligence. We must go in and look at the books in detail to
understand what the true value is. Our $47 offer was based on the information
that we had at the time of the offering. The $53 offer we raised it because
during the period from when we first made the offer, the automotive industry
had done much better. Their price to-earnings increased and since we're selling
that part of the business off, it had more value, we think, in [the] marketplace
in a sale. So the numbers are reasonably comparable. But the real issue is, what
is the right number? And we've said all along that we [will] pay [a] fair price
for good properties, and TRW is a great property. But we won't overpay. So we
have to get in and do due diligence once we're there we'll try and negotiate a
very good deal with the TRW shareholders and, through their board, something
that they'll be proud of. So it's really open yet.

BARTIROMO: OK. All right. Because you won the right to go through the books last
week, so you're still in that due diligence phase then?

KRESA: We're hoping we still can't sign a confidentiality agreement yet with
TRW. We've been trying to, but they not only have the confidentiality issue
there-which we're comfortable with-we could sign that tomorrow. But they also
want a standstill agreement for three years and that's just not acceptable.

BARTIROMO: The TRW bid has certainly weighed on your stock relative to your
peers. Analysts worry that it will be especially dilutive to 2003 earnings once
you sell off the big chunk of TRW's assets, which is your plan. Will it, in
fact, be highly dilutive?

KRESA: No, it really won't. If you look at it strictly at the Northrop Grumman
level, then obviously it will be dilutive. But that's not the way to look at it.
You have to realize that our

Northrop Grumman shareholders will for example-if we spin the automotive-then
they will have that ownership in that company as well. The combination of the
two will not be dilutive. And if we sell it for cash [to] another buyer, then it
won't be dilutive either. So this is not a dilutive transaction for our

BARTIROMO: What about defense spending overall, sir? What can you tell us about
the war, about how long this cycle will last, in your opinion, as far as
government spending continuing for, I guess, many years?

KRESA: Yes. All the data that we've had to date says that we will have a
combined annual growth rate of somewhere between 8 percent and 9 percent in the
industry. Now that's on the defense side. But since September 11th, we also have
the issue of homeland defense, which probably will add another 1 percent to 2
percent on top of that. So for our industry, we're really looking at
double-digit growth [which] is fantastic, recognizing where we've been over the
last 10 years.

BARTIROMO: Certainly sounds like it in this environment. Mr. Kresa, good to have
you with us.

KRESA: Great to be here, Maria.

BARTIROMO: Thank you for your time.
