The General Dynamics Board of Directors believes that a commitment to good corporate governance enhances shareholder value. To that end, the Board has adopted governance policies and processes to ensure effective governance of the Company. These governance policies are embodied in the General Dynamics Corporate Governance Guidelines, which, along with the charters of the Board's committees and the Company's Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws, provide the framework for the oversight of the Company's business and operations. The Board of Directors conducts periodic governance reviews of all Board and committee governance documents and updates these documents as necessary and appropriate.
