ITEM 1.01. ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT (a) In Item 5.02 of its Current Report on Form 8-K dated October 22, 2004, Unisys Corporation disclosed the election of Joseph W. McGrath as the company's President and Chief Executive Officer, effective January 1, 2005. At that time, the company and Mr. McGrath had not yet entered into an employment agreement with respect to this position. On December 22, 2004, the company and Mr. McGrath signed an employment agreement covering the terms and conditions of Mr. McGrath's employment as President and Chief Executive Officer for the period from January 1, 2005 through December 31, 2007. The agreement provides for a minimum base salary of $900,000 per year, subject to periodic review by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors. He is eligible to receive an annual bonus award at a target bonus level of not less than 100% of base salary. The actual bonus payable, if any, will be determined by the Board in its sole discretion. Pursuant to the agreement, Mr. McGrath was also awarded a stock option grant for 250,000 shares of Unisys common stock at an exercise price equal to the fair market value of Unisys stock on December 22, 2004. Mr. McGrath is eligible to participate in the benefit programs generally made available to executive officers and is eligible to receive stock option and other long-term incentive awards under the company's long-term incentive plan. If Mr. McGrath's employment is terminated under certain circumstances, the agreement provides for him to receive continued payment of his base salary and annual bonus (in an amount equal to the average annual bonus paid to him for the three years preceding termination) for the remainder of the term, but not less than one year's compensation. He will also be entitled to continued medical and dental coverage through the later of the term of the agreement or his attaining age 55, full vesting in outstanding awards under the company's long-term incentive plan, and continued benefit accrual under the company's Elected Officer Pension Plan through the remaining term of the agreement. Any such salary and bonus payments made to Mr. McGrath will be reduced by the amount of any cash compensation he receives for services rendered to any entity other than Unisys. A copy of the employment agreement is filed as Exhibit 10 hereto. ITEM 5.02.

December 22, 2004 Mr. Joseph W. McGrath c/o Unisys Corporation Unisys Way Blue Bell, Pennsylvania 19424 Dear Mr. McGrath: You are presently employed by Unisys Corporation (the "Corporation") as President and Chief Operating Officer. Effective January 1, 2005, you will become President and Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation. This letter agreement (the "Agreement") describes the terms and conditions of your employment with the Corporation on and after January 1, 2005 and through December 31, 2007. The effective date of this Agreement is January 1, 2005. The provisions of this Agreement are as follows: 1. Base Salary. You will serve as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation with a base salary at the annual rate of not less than $900,000 per year, effective January 1, 2005. Your base salary level will be reviewed periodically by the Compensation Committee (the "Committee") of the Board of Directors or its successor. 2. Annual Bonus. You will participate in the Executive Variable Compensation ("EVC") Plan (or any successor bonus plan) and your target will not be less than 100% of your annual paid salary. The actual EVC paid to you, if any, will be determined by the Board of Directors in its sole discretion after receiving a recommendation from the Committee, and will be based on such factors as the Board and the Committee deem appropriate. Your actual EVC payments, if any, will be made in cash at the time of the award, subject to your election to defer receipt of all or any portion of the EVC award in accordance with the terms of the Unisys Corporation Deferred Compensation Plan (or any successor deferred compensation program). 3. Long-Term Incentive Awards. (a) On the date that this Agreement is executed both by you and by the Corporation, you will receive a stock option grant under the terms of the 2003 Unisys Long-Term Incentive and Equity Compensation Plan ("2003 LTIP")for 250,000 shares of Unisys common stock, which will vest 25% per year starting on the first anniversary of the date of grant. The option price for this grant will be the Fair Market Value (as defined in the 2003 LTIP) of Unisys common stock on the date of grant. (b) You will be eligible to receive stock option awards under the terms of the 2003 LTIP, or any successor equity compensation plan, and will receive stock option awards in each year in which such awards are made to other executive officers generally. You will also be eligible to receive long-term performance awards, restricted share (or restricted share unit) awards and any other incentive award under the terms of the 2003 LTIP, or any successor thereto, in each year in which such awards are made to executive officers generally. 4. Benefit Programs; Perquisites. During your employment hereunder, you will participate in the retirement, welfare, incentive, fringe and perquisite programs generally made available to executive officers of the Corporation and at such benefit levels appropriate for the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation. 5. Service on Other Boards. During the term of your employment hereunder, you shall render your full-time attention to the business affairs of the Corporation. You may serve on the board of directors of other companies only as expressly approved in advance by the Board of Directors of the Corporation in its discretion. 6. Death or Disability. In the event of your disability or death, all future compensation under this Agreement (other than those amounts and benefits described in the following sentence) shall terminate. You or your estate shall receive (a) if termination of employment by reason of disability or death occurs prior to the EVC payout date for the previous EVC award year, an EVC award for such previous award year determined under Section 2 as if you had continued to be employed through the EVC payout date, such payment to be made at the same time that such EVC payment would have been made had you continued to be employed, (b) an annual EVC award for the year in which your employment is terminated by reason of disability or death in an amount equal to a pro rata portion, based on the period of service rendered in such year, of the EVC amount paid for the previous year, (c) benefits under the retirement, welfare, incentive, fringe and perquisite programs generally available to executive officers upon disability or death and (d) any deferred account balance under the Unisys Deferred Compensation Plan (or any successor deferred compensation program) in accordance with the terms of such plan. For purposes of this Agreement, disability means a mental or physical injury or illness that renders you incapable of substantially performing your duties hereunder for a period of six consecutive months and shall commence for purposes of this Agreement at the end of such six-month period. In the event of your disability or death, you will be entitled to the benefits described in this Section 6, and not those described in Section 7. 7. Termination of Employment. (a) Your employment may be terminated by the Corporation at any time with or without cause. In the event that you are terminated for "cause" (as defined below) or you terminate your employment for other than "good reason" (as defined below), no further amounts shall be paid to you hereunder except as otherwise provided under the normal terms of the retirement, welfare, incentive, fringe, and perquisite programs in which you participated at your date of termination. (b) Upon termination by the Corporation without cause or your termination for good reason, you shall be entitled to the following: (1) An amount equal to 100% of the compensation payable for the remaining term of employment hereunder as if you had continued to work through such remaining term of employment, but in no event less than one year's compensation. For purposes of this Section 7(b), compensation consists of base salary (at its then current rate on the date of termination) and annual bonus (in an amount equal to the average percentage of your target bonus paid for the three years preceding your date of termination times your target bonus amount as in effect at your date of termination). Such termination payments shall be paid in the same manner and at the same times as the salary and annual bonus due hereunder during employment. (2) Continued participation, at the same costs applicable to active employees, through attainment of age 55, or, if later, through the remaining term of this Agreement, in the Unisys Medical and Dental Plans (or, if such participation is prohibited by applicable law or the terms of the plans, participation in arrangements that will provide benefits substantially similar to those available under the Unisys Medical and Dental Plans) for you and your eligible dependents, subject, however, to the generally applicable terms of such plans; (3) Upon attainment of age 55, you shall be entitled to receive the post-retirement medical and post-retirement life insurance coverage generally available to other retired executive officers; (4) Immediate and full vesting in all stock options, restricted shares and other awards made under the 2003 LTIP (or under any predecessor or successor incentive plan thereto); for purposes of stock option, SAR and other equity-based award exercise rights under the applicable incentive plans, you shall be treated as if your date of termination were your normal retirement date; (5) A noncontributory retirement benefit calculated under the terms of the Unisys Elected Officer Pension Plan (or any successor pension plan thereto) as if you had satisfied the vesting requirements described in the Plan and as if you had continued employment through the remaining term of this Agreement. Such benefit will be payable at such times and in such manner as is prescribed under the terms of the Elected Officer Pension Plan. (c) For purposes of this Section 7, "cause" shall mean intentional dishonesty or gross neglect of your duties. "Good reason" shall mean (i) a reduction in your aggregate compensation target (base salary plus bonus target), as such amounts may be increased during the term of this Agreement, unless such reduction is due to your continued failure to adequately perform your duties (provided that the Corporation has provided you notice identifying the manner in which the Corporation believes that you have failed to adequately perform your duties, and you have failed to discontinue your inadequate performance within 90 days of receiving such notice) or is due to a reduction in compensation generally applicable to executive officers or (ii) a reduction in your duties or authority or your removal as Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation or its successor, unless such reduction or removal is for cause, as defined above, or is on account of your inability to substantially perform your duties for an aggregate of 120 days within any consecutive 12 month period due to a mental or physical injury or illness, and provided that your resignation occurs within 120 days after such reduction or removal. (d) You shall not be entitled to receive payments under the Unisys Income Assistance Plan or any successor severance or income assistance plan generally applicable to employees of the Corporation. (e) The payments specified in this Section 7 will be reduced by the amount of cash compensation, if any, earned by you if you become "employed" (as defined below) after your termination of employment with the Corporation. You will promptly advise the Senior Vice President, Worldwide Human Resources of the Corporation of any facts that could cause such a reduction in the amounts payable to you under this Section 7. Upon written notice from the Corporation, you will promptly reimburse to the Corporation any overpayments made to you as a result of your receipt of the cash compensation described above. For purposes of this Section 7, you will be considered to be "employed" if you provide services to any other entity as an employee, independent contractor, consultant, officer or director (provided that service as an outside director of another entity will not be considered as employment to the extent that the fees received by you for such services are based on the same fee structure as is paid to other outside directors of the entity). (f) In the event that you become entitled to termination payments under this Section 7 and payments under your Executive Employment Agreement dated January 5, 1999 (the "Executive Employment Agreement"), then you shall not receive duplicate payments under both agreements. Instead, if you are entitled to benefits under both agreements, the provisions of this Agreement as to any matter or the corresponding provisions of your Executive Employment Agreement, whichever is more favorable to you or provides you with the greater benefit as determined by a nationally recognized accounting firm mutually agreed to by the parties, shall be used in determining your status, compensation and benefits, and other rights and obligations. 8. Conduct after Termination. (a) From and after the termination of your employment for any reason and for a period equal to the greater of (i) 12 months from the date of termination of your employment or (ii) the period during which the Corporation is actually making payments to you under Section 7(b)(1) above (it being understood that you may notify the Corporation at any time after one year from the date your employment terminates that you no longer wish to receive such payments, and the Corporation will honor such request): (1) You shall not engage in or become employed as a business owner, employee, agent, representative or consultant in any activity which is in competition with any line of business of Unisys (or its subsidiaries or affiliates) existing as of your termination date, except with the express prior written consent of the Committee, provided, however, you shall be deemed not to be in competition for purposes of Section 8 of this Agreement (A) if you are an employee of or a consultant to an entity a unit of which is in competition with Unisys, provided that it can be demonstrated to the reasonable satisfaction of the Committee that procedures are in place to assure that any unit that is in competition with Unisys and any director, officer, employee, consultant or other representative of such unit cannot directly or indirectly avail itself or themselves of your services, (B) if you are an employee of or a consultant to an entity that provides consulting services to other entities, one or more of which are in competition with Unisys, provided that it can be demonstrated to the reasonable satisfaction of the Committee that procedures are in place to assure that no entity that is in competition with Unisys nor any director, officer, employee, consultant or other representative of such unit can directly or indirectly avail itself or themselves of your services, (C) if you invest in securities which are listed for trading on a national exchange or NASDAQ and your investment does not exceed 1% of the issued and outstanding shares of stock or (D) if you acquire an ownership interest in a non-public company, provided that such ownership represents a passive investment; (2) You shall not negatively comment publicly or privately about Unisys (or its subsidiaries or affiliates), any of its products, services or other businesses, its present or past Board of Directors, its officers, or employees, nor shall you in any way discuss the circumstances of your termination of employment, except that (A) you may give truthful testimony before a court or governmental agency, (B) you may make comments about the circumstances of your termination with the prior written approval of the Corporation, (C) you may respond publicly to any untrue public comment made by the Corporation, (D) you may discuss the circumstances of your termination with your attorneys, your financial and tax advisers, members of your family and any prospective employer, provided that you take all necessary steps to assure that each such person does not, as a result of your discussions with them, make any such negative comment prohibited under this Section 8(a)(2) and (E) you may make comments to an arbitrator or court for the purpose of determining or enforcing your rights under this Agreement or any entitlement under any agreement, plan, award, policy or program with or sponsored by Unisys (or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates); (3) You shall not, directly or indirectly, induce or attempt to induce any employee of Unisys (or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates) to render services for any other person, firm or business entity, except that you will be permitted to give recommendations, if requested, for employees seeking employment outside of Unisys; (4) Unisys (and its subsidiaries and affiliates) agrees not to negatively comment publicly or privately about you or the circumstances of your termination of employment, except (A) Unisys may give truthful testimony before a court or governmental agency, (B) Unisys may make comments about the circumstances of your termination with your prior written approval, (C) Unisys may respond publicly to any untrue public comment made by you, (D) Unisys may discuss the circumstances of your termination with its attorneys and its financial and tax advisers, provided that it takes reasonable steps to assure that each such person does not, as a result of Unisys discussions with them, make any such negative comment prohibited under this Section 8(a)(4) and (E) Unisys may make comments to an arbitrator or court for the purpose of determining its rights under this Agreement or any agreement, plan, award, policy or program with or sponsored by Unisys (or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates).
