Dear Fellow Stockholder:
It is my pleasure to invite you to the Unisys 1999 Annual Meeting of
Stockholders. This year's meeting will be held on Thursday, April 29, 1999 at
the Park Hyatt Philadelphia at the Bellevue, which is located at Broad and
Walnut Streets in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The meeting will begin at 9:30
As you will note in the enclosed annual report to stockholders, the company
continues to make very strong progress. In 1998 we accelerated revenue growth,
more than doubled earnings per share, generated strong cash flow, and exceeded
our $1 billion debt reduction target. Equally important, we laid the foundation
for future growth by investing in what I see as the three keys to our
success -- employees, customers, and reputation. Today, employee morale is
soaring, customer satisfaction is up, and our reputation in the marketplace has
Whether you plan to attend the annual meeting or not, I urge you to take a
moment to vote on the items in this year's proxy statement. This year, most
stockholders can vote their shares by using the Internet or the telephone.
Instructions for using these new services are on your proxy card. Of course, you
may also vote your shares by completing, signing, and returning your proxy card.
Voting by any of these means only takes a few minutes, and it will ensure that
your shares are represented at the meeting.
I look forward to seeing you at the annual meeting and to reporting on our
1998 achievements and our goals for 1999.

By Order of the Board of Directors,
/s/ Harold S. Barron

Senior Vice President, General Counsel
Blue Bell, Pennsylvania
March 16, 1999
YOUR VOTE IS IMPORTANT. THIS YEAR, MOST STOCKHOLDERS WILL HAVE A CHOICE OF
VOTING OVER THE INTERNET, BY TELEPHONE, OR BY USING A TRADITIONAL PROXY CARD.
PLEASE CHECK YOUR PROXY CARD OR THE INFORMATION FORWARDED BY YOUR BANK, BROKER
OR OTHER HOLDER OF RECORD TO SEE WHICH OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE TO YOU.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS
APRIL 29, 1999
The Board of Directors of Unisys Corporation solicits your proxy for use at
the 1999 Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on April 29, 1999 and at any
adjournment(s). At the Annual Meeting, stockholders will be asked to elect
directors and to ratify the selection of independent auditors.
The record date for the Annual Meeting is February 22, 1999. Only holders
of record of Unisys Common Stock as of the close of business on the record date
are entitled to vote at the meeting. On the record date, 261,653,650 shares of
Common Stock were outstanding. The presence, in person or by proxy, of a
majority of those shares will constitute a quorum at the meeting.
This Proxy Statement, the proxy/voting instruction card, and the annual
report of Unisys, including 1998 financial statements, are being mailed and made
available on the Internet on or about March 16, 1999.
Each share of Unisys Common Stock outstanding on the record date is
entitled to one vote on each matter to be voted upon. Directors will be elected
by a plurality of the votes cast (i.e., the nominees receiving the greatest
number of votes will be elected). Abstentions and broker non-votes are not
counted for purposes of the election of directors. Ratification of the selection
of independent auditors will require the affirmative vote of a majority of
shares present, in person or by proxy, and entitled to vote. Abstentions will be
included in the vote totals for this matter, and therefore will have the same
effect as a negative vote; broker non-votes will not be included in the vote
totals and therefore will have no effect on the vote.
VOTING PROCEDURES AND REVOCABILITY OF PROXIES
Your vote is important. Shares may be voted at the Annual Meeting only if
you are present in person or represented by proxy. Most stockholders have a
choice of voting (a) by completing a proxy/voting instruction card and mailing
it in the postage-paid envelope provided, (b) over the Internet, or (c) by
telephone using a toll-free telephone number. Check your proxy card or the
information forwarded by your bank, broker or other holder of record to see
which options are available to you and to obtain the applicable web site or
telephone number. Please be aware that if you vote over the Internet, you may
incur costs associated with electronic access, such as usage charges from
Internet access providers and telephone companies, for which you will be
The telephone and Internet voting procedures are designed to authenticate
stockholders' identities by use of a control number, to allow stockholders to
give their voting instructions, and to confirm that stockholders' instructions
have been recorded properly. The Company has been advised by counsel that the
telephone and Internet voting procedures are consistent with the requirements of
You may revoke your proxy at any time before it is exercised by writing to
the Secretary of Unisys, by timely delivery of a properly executed later-dated
proxy (including an Internet or telephone vote), or by voting in person at the
The method by which you vote will in no way limit your right to vote at the
meeting if you later decide to attend in person. If your shares are held in the
name of a bank, broker or other holder of record, you must obtain a proxy,
executed in your favor, from the holder of record, to be able to vote at the
If you properly complete and return your proxy, and do not revoke it, the
proxy holders will vote your shares in accordance with your instructions. If
your properly completed proxy gives no instructions, the proxy holders will vote
your shares FOR the election of directors, FOR the selection of independent
auditors and in their discretion on any other matters that properly come before
the Annual Meeting.
If you are a participant in the Unisys Savings Plan, the proxy/voting
instruction card will serve as voting instructions to the plan trustee for any
whole shares of Unisys Common Stock credited to your account as of February 22,
1999. The trustee will vote those shares in accordance with your instructions if
it receives your completed proxy by April 23, 1999. If the proxy is not timely
received, or if you give no instructions on a matter to be voted upon, the
trustee will vote the shares credited to your account in the same proportion as
it votes those shares for which it received proper instructions from other
ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

The Board has also designated a standing Finance Committee and may
establish other committees from time to time.
CORPORATE GOVERNANCE GUIDELINES
The Board of Directors has adopted Guidelines on Significant Corporate
Governance Issues. Among other matters, these Guidelines cover the following:
1. A majority of the Board of Directors should be independent
directors. Interlocking directorships should be avoided, and directors
should not, except in rare circumstances approved by the Board, draw any
consulting, legal or other fees from the Company. The independence of
outside directors is reviewed annually by the Corporate Governance and
2. Membership on the Audit, Corporate Governance and Compensation, and
Nominating Committees is limited to outside directors.
3. Directors may not stand for election after age 70 or continue to
serve beyond age 72.
4. Directors should offer their resignations upon a change in
position, including retirement, from the position they held when they were
elected to the Board. In addition, if the Company's chief executive officer
resigns from that position, he is expected to offer his resignation from
the Board at the same time.
5. The Nominating Committee is responsible for determining the
appropriate skills and characteristics required of Board members and will
consider issues of diversity, age, and skills in its assessment of the
needs of the Board. The Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee
maintains an orientation program for new directors.
6. The Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee is responsible
for providing an annual assessment of the Board's performance and of its
contribution as a whole.
7. The outside directors have the opportunity to meet in executive
session, apart from the chief executive officer and other members of
management, at any time. Either the outside director serving as the
chairman of the Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee or the
outside director serving as the chairman of the Finance Committee assumes
the responsibility of chairing such meetings.
8. The outside directors meet annually in executive session to review
the performance of the chief executive officer. The evaluation is led by
the Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee and is based on
objective criteria, including performance of the business, accomplishment
of long-term strategic objectives, and development of management. The
evaluation is used by the Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee
in its consideration of the compensation of the chief executive officer.
9. The chief executive officer is expected to provide an annual
report on succession planning to the Corporate Governance and Compensation
10. Board members have complete access to Unisys management. Members
of senior management who are not Board members regularly attend Board
meetings, and the Board encourages senior management, from time to time, to
bring into Board meetings other managers who can provide additional
insights into the matters under discussion.
STOCK OWNERSHIP GUIDELINES
In 1998, the Board established stock ownership guidelines for both
directors and executive officers in order to more closely link their interests
with those of stockholders. Under the guidelines, directors are expected to own,
within a five-year period, Unisys stock or stock units having a value equal to
four times their annual retainer. Executive officers are expected to own stock
or stock units having a value equal to a multiple of base salary as follows:
chief executive officer -- four times; executive and senior vice
presidents -- two times; vice presidents -- one times. They have either three or
five years to achieve the minimum levels, depending on the date they became an
executive officer. Restricted shares and stock options, including vested stock
options, do not count toward fulfillment of the ownership guidelines.
RATIFICATION OF SELECTION OF INDEPENDENT AUDITORS
The Board of Directors, upon the recommendation of the Audit Committee, has
selected the firm of Ernst & Young LLP as independent auditors to audit the
Company's books and accounts for the year ending December 31, 1999 and
recommends ratification of this selection by the stockholders. Ernst & Young LLP
has served as independent auditors for Unisys since the merger of Burroughs
Corporation and Sperry Corporation in 1986, having previously served in that
capacity for Sperry Corporation. Its representatives will be present at the
Annual Meeting and will have the opportunity to make a statement if they desire
to do so and to respond to appropriate questions asked by stockholders.
The Board of Directors considers Ernst & Young LLP to be well qualified to
serve as the independent auditors for Unisys. If, however, stockholders do not
ratify the selection of Ernst & Young LLP, the Board will reconsider the
THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS A VOTE "FOR" THE PROPOSAL TO RATIFY THE
SELECTION OF ERNST & YOUNG LLP AS INDEPENDENT AUDITORS FOR 1999. PROXIES
SOLICITED BY THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS WILL BE SO VOTED UNLESS STOCKHOLDERS
OTHERWISE SPECIFY IN THEIR PROXIES.

AVERAGE COMPENSATION 5 10 15 20 25 30 OR MORE
-------------------- -------- -------- -------- -------- -------- ----------
Final Average Compensation generally corresponds to the amounts shown in
the Summary Compensation Table under the headings Salary and Bonus. However,
Final Average Compensation is calculated using the individual's highest 60
consecutive months of compensation out of the final 120 months of employment and
thus will differ somewhat from the amounts shown in the Summary Compensation
Table. Final Average Compensation for the eligible Named Officers as of March 1,
1999 is as follows: G. A. Gagliardi - $520,966; G. R. Gazerwitz - $491,969; L.
C. Russell - $691,800; R. H. Brust - $636,909. Full years of credited service
under the pension plans for the eligible Named Officers as of March 1, 1998 are
as follows: G. A. Gagliardi - 27 years; G. R. Gazerwitz - 17 years; L. C.
Russell - 3 years; R. H. Brust - 1 year.
Pursuant to the employment agreement described below, Lawrence A. Weinbach
is vested in an annual pension benefit as follows: 0-3 years of
service - $350,000; 4 years - $570,000; 5 years - $710,000; 6 years - $860,000;
7 or more years - $1,000,000.
On September 23, 1997, the Company entered into a five-year employment
agreement with Lawrence A. Weinbach, covering the terms and conditions of Mr.
Weinbach's employment as Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive
Officer. The agreement provides for a minimum base salary of $1,200,000 per
year, subject to annual review by the Corporate Governance and Compensation
Committee, and eligibility for an annual bonus award at a target bonus level of
not less than 100% of base salary. The actual bonus payable, if any, is to be
determined by the Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee in its sole
discretion, except that, for the 1998 and 1999 award years, Mr. Weinbach is
guaranteed a minimum bonus equal to 100% of the base salary paid to him in that
year. Mr. Weinbach is eligible to participate in the benefit programs generally
made available to executive officers, is entitled to the pension benefits
discussed above, and is eligible to receive stock option and other long-term
incentive awards under the Company's long-term incentive plan. If Mr. Weinbach's
employment is terminated under certain circumstances, the agreement provides for
him to receive continued payment of his base salary for the remainder of the
term (but in no event less than one year's base salary) and, for the one-year
period following the date of termination, a bonus in an amount equal to his
target bonus percentage times the base salary paid during such period. He will
also be entitled to continued medical and dental coverage through the remaining
term of the agreement, full vesting in outstanding awards under the long-term
incentive plan, and one additional year of service for pension purposes. Salary
continuation amounts paid to Mr. Weinbach after two years from the date of
employment termination will be reduced by the amount of any cash compensation he
receives for services rendered to any entity other than Unisys. Mr. Weinbach is
also party to a change in control agreement with the Company, as described
below. He is not entitled to receive duplicate payments under the change in
control agreement and his employment agreement.
Effective November 1995, the Company entered into a three-year employment
agreement with Lawrence C. Russell, covering the terms and conditions of his
employment as Executive Vice President of Unisys and President of Unisys
Information Services. Under the agreement, Mr. Russell was entitled to an annual
base salary of $450,000 and was eligible for an annual bonus at a target of not
less than 60% of base salary. The agreement provided that the actual bonus
amount could vary from zero to 150% of target. The agreement expired in
accordance with its terms in November 1998. As part of Mr. Russell's continued
employment with the Company, he will be entitled under the original contract to
receive two payments of $100,000 each in 1999 and 2000, to compensate him for
the value of incentives forfeited from his previous employment.
CHANGE IN CONTROL EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENTS
The Company has entered into change in control employment agreements with
its executive officers including the Named Officers. The agreements are intended
to retain the services of these executives and provide for continuity of
management in the event of any actual or threatened change in control. A change
in control is generally defined as (i) the acquisition of 20% or more of Unisys
Common Stock, (ii) a change in the majority of the Board of Directors unless
approved by the incumbent directors (other than as a result of a contested
election), and (iii) certain reorganizations, mergers, consolidations,
liquidations or dissolutions. Each agreement has a term ending on the third
anniversary of the date of the change in control. These agreements, which are
the same in substance for each executive, provide that in the event of a change
in control each executive will have specific rights and receive certain
benefits. Those benefits include the right to continue in the Company's employ
during the term, performing comparable duties to those being performed
immediately prior to the change in control and at compensation and benefit
levels that are at least equal to the compensation and benefit levels in effect
immediately prior to the change in control. Upon a termination of employment
under certain circumstances following a change in control, the terminated
executive will be entitled to receive special termination benefits, including a
lump sum payment equal to three years base salary and bonus and the actuarial
value of the pension benefit the executive would have accrued had the executive
remained employed for three years following the termination date. The special
termination benefits are payable if the Company terminates the executive without
cause, the executive terminates employment for certain enumerated reasons
(including a reduction in the executive's compensation or responsibilities or a
change in the executive's job location), or the executive voluntarily terminates
employment for any reason during the 30-day period following the first
anniversary of the date of the change in control. If any payment or distribution
by the Company to the executive is determined to be subject to the excise tax
imposed by Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code, the executive is entitled
to receive a payment on an after-tax basis equal to the excise tax imposed. The
executive is under no obligation to mitigate amounts payable under these
agreements, and to the extent the executive has a separate employment agreement
with the Company with conflicting rights, the executive is allowed the greater
INDEBTEDNESS OF MANAGEMENT
In 1996, the Company made a four-year, interest-free loan to Lawrence C.
Russell. The loan was made in connection with his purchase of a principal
residence upon relocation and is secured by a first mortgage. At March 1, 1999
the principal amount outstanding was $141,500. The maximum amount outstanding
during the period between January 1, 1998 and March 1, 1999 was $212,250.
COMPENSATION OF DIRECTORS
The Company's non-employee directors receive an annual retainer of $35,000,
an annual attendance fee of $10,000 for regularly scheduled Board and Committee
meetings, and a meeting fee of $1,000 for attendance at each Board and Committee
meeting held on other than a regularly scheduled meeting day. The annual
retainer and annual meeting fee are paid in monthly installments, with 50% of
each installment paid in cash and 50% in the form of common stock equivalent
units ("Stock Units"). The value of each Stock Unit at any point in time is
equal to the value of one share of Unisys Common Stock. Stock Units are recorded
in a memorandum account maintained for each director. A director's Stock Unit
account is payable upon termination of service, or at any date at least five
years after the Stock Units are awarded, in either cash or common stock at the
election of the director. Directors do not have the right to vote with respect
to any Stock Units. Directors also have the opportunity to defer until
termination of service, or until any date at least five years after the
deferral, all or a portion of their cash fees. Any deferred cash amounts, and
earnings or losses thereon, are recorded in a memorandum account maintained for
each director. The right to receive future payments of Stock Unit accounts and
deferred cash accounts is an unsecured claim against the Company's general
assets. Directors who are employees of the Company do not receive any cash or
Stock Units for their services as directors.
REPORT OF THE CORPORATE GOVERNANCE AND COMPENSATION COMMITTEE
COMPENSATION PROGRAM AND POLICIES
The Company's executive compensation program is administered by the
Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee (the "Committee"). In this
capacity, the Committee reviews compensation levels of elected officers,
evaluates performance, considers management succession and related matters, and
administers the Company's incentive plans, including the Executive Variable
Compensation Plan (the "EVC Plan") and the 1990 Unisys Long-Term Incentive Plan
The Company's executive compensation program is designed to attract and
retain executives responsible for the Company's long-term success, to reward
executives for achieving both financial and strategic company goals, to align
executive and stockholder interests through long-term, equity-based plans, and
to provide a compensation package that recognizes individual contributions as
well as overall business results. As a result, a substantial portion of each
executive's total compensation is intended to be variable and to be tied closely
to the achievement of specific business objectives and corporate financial
goals, as well as the attainment of the executive's individual performance
objectives. The Company's executive compensation program also takes into account
the compensation practices of companies with whom Unisys competes for executive
talent. These companies (the "peer companies") include the principal companies
included in the peer group indices in the Performance Graph on page 17 of this
Proxy Statement and additional companies in various industries.
The three key components of the Company's executive compensation program
for 1998 were base salary, short-term incentive payments, and long-term
incentive awards in the form of stock options. Overall compensation is intended
to be competitive for comparable positions at the peer companies.
The Company's policies with respect to each of the elements of its
executive compensation program, as well as the basis for the compensation
awarded to the chief executive officer, are discussed below.
Each executive's base salary is initially determined with reference to
competitive pay practices and is dependent upon the executive's level of
responsibility and experience. The Committee uses its discretion, rather than a
formal weighting system, to evaluate these factors and to determine individual
base salary levels. Thereafter, base salaries are reviewed periodically, and
increases are made based on the Committee's subjective assessment of individual
performance, as well as the factors discussed above.
SHORT-TERM INCENTIVE PAYMENTS
For 1998, all of the Company's executive officers participated in the EVC
Plan. This plan's stated purpose is to motivate and reward elected officers and
other key executives for the attainment of individual and/or corporate
performance goals. Under the plan, the Committee has the discretion to determine
the conditions (including performance objectives) applicable to annual award
payments and the amounts of such awards. With respect to executives other than
Mr. Weinbach, awards under the plan for 1998 were generally determined as
Early in 1998, executives were assigned target award amounts for the year,
which were typically stated as a percentage of base salary (ranging, in the case
of elected officers other
than the chief executive officer, from 45% to 60%). Performance goals were also
established based upon the financial performance of Unisys (generally,
achievement of pre-established revenue, profit, and cash flow objectives) and
upon individual performance objectives. Actual award amounts could range from
zero to 150% of target, depending upon the Committee's assessment of the
Company's achievement of its overall global business goals and the individual's
performance, including cooperation in achieving corporate-wide results. In 1998,
the Company met the performance goals established for the year. Awards paid for
1998 reflected these results plus individual accomplishments.
LONG-TERM INCENTIVE AWARDS
Under the LTIP, stock options may be granted to the Company's executive
officers and other key employees. The size of stock option awards is based
primarily on the individual's responsibilities with Unisys. The Committee does
not determine the size of such awards by reference to the amount or value of
stock options currently held by an executive officer.
Stock options are designed to align the interests of executives with those
of stockholders. Stock options are granted with an exercise price equal to the
average market price of Unisys Common Stock on the date of grant, and current
grants vest over four years. This approach is designed to encourage the creation
of stockholder value over the long term since no benefit is realized unless the
price of the Common Stock rises over a number of years.
COMPENSATION OF THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Lawrence A. Weinbach became the Company's Chairman, President and Chief
Executive Officer on September 23, 1997. In connection with his employment, the
Company entered into the employment agreement described at page 13. Under the
employment agreement, Mr. Weinbach is entitled to a base salary at the rate of
$1,200,000 per year and, for 1998 and 1999, is guaranteed a minimum annual bonus
equal to 100% of the base salary paid to him in that year. In light of the
Company's strong 1998 financial performance, as well as significant improvements
in customer and employee satisfaction and the Company's reputation in the market
place under Mr. Weinbach's leadership, the Committee awarded Mr. Weinbach a
bonus of $1,800,000, or 150% of base salary, for 1998. In 1998, Mr. Weinbach
also was granted the stock options described on page 11.
DEDUCTIBILITY OF EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code imposes a $1 million annual
limit on the amount of compensation that may be deducted by the Company with
respect to each Named Officer employed as of the last day of the applicable
year. The limitation does not apply to compensation based on the attainment of
objective performance goals. The Committee has considered the impact of the
deduction limitation and has determined that it is not in the best interests of
the Company or its stockholders to base compensation solely on objective
performance criteria. Rather, the Committee believes that it should retain the
flexibility to base compensation on its subjective evaluation of performance as
well as on the attainment of objective goals.
