I won't be able to cover this. If the press release can be believed, it may be an opportunity to ask the top execs about EEStor. See below...in bold.
If they only allow analysts to ask questions, you might recommend to them that they bring up EEStor:
I spoke to Morningstar's Anil Daka this morning about this. Daka tracks battery developments in addition to Lockheed so he is curious about EEStor. He told me he that if he couldnt attend the earnings call, he would still be getting an update directly from Lockheed in a week or so. He said he would definitely bring it up to them.
You may have a different view but I believe Lockheed has an obligation to accurately describe it's business and while EEStor certainly isn't material info now...it could become material soon. So, it's only appropriate that Lockheed investors would seek to understand the opportunity.
