<PAGE> 2 Unisys Corporation Unisys Way [UNISYS LOGO] Blue Bell, PA 19424-0001 March 16, 1999 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 a.m. 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 improved significantly. 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. Sincerely, /s/ Larry A. Weinbach Lawrence A. Weinbach Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer

<PAGE> 5 UNISYS CORPORATION PROXY STATEMENT 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. REQUIRED VOTE 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 responsible. 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 applicable law.
<PAGE> 6 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 meeting. 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 meeting. 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 participants. ELECTION OF DIRECTORS The Board of Directors currently consists of ten members, divided into three classes. One class of directors is elected each year to hold office for a three-year term. The three directors whose terms expire in 1999, J.P. Bolduc, James J. Duderstadt, and Kenneth A. Macke, have been nominated for reelection. The remaining seven directors will continue to serve as set forth below. Each of the nominees has agreed to serve as a director if elected, and Unisys believes that each nominee will be available to serve. However, the proxy holders have discretionary authority to cast votes for the election of a substitute should any nominee not be available to serve as a director. INFORMATION REGARDING NOMINEES AND DIRECTORS The names and ages of the nominees and directors, their principal occupations and employment during the past five years, and other data regarding them are as follows. 2

BOARD MEETINGS The Board of Directors held seven meetings in 1998. During 1998, all directors attended at least 75 percent of the meetings of the Board of Directors and standing Committees on which they served. 5
<PAGE> 10 COMMITTEES The Board of Directors has a standing Audit Committee, Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee, and Nominating Committee. The Audit Committee reviews compliance with Company policies, reviews internal control procedures, recommends to the Board of Directors the firm of independent auditors to serve the Company, reviews the scope, fees and results of the audit by the independent auditors, and reviews the internal audit organization and annual audit plan. The Audit Committee held four meetings in 1998. Its members are Dr. Duderstadt, Mr. Martin, and Mr. McClements. The Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee oversees the Company's corporate governance, the Company's executive management structure, the compensation-related policies and programs involving the Company's executive management, and the level of compensation and benefits of officers and key employees. It also oversees the Company's diversity programs. The Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee held seven meetings in 1998. Its members are Mr. Goodes, Mr. Huston, and Mr. Macke. The Nominating Committee identifies and reviews candidates and recommends to the Board of Directors nominees for membership on the Board of Directors. In fulfilling this responsibility, the Nominating Committee will consider recommendations received from stockholders and other qualified sources. Stockholder recommendations must be in writing and addressed to the Chairman of the Nominating Committee, c/o Corporate Secretary, Unisys Corporation, Unisys Way, Blue Bell, Pennsylvania 19424. If a stockholder intends to make a nomination at an annual meeting, the Company's bylaws require that the stockholder deliver a notice to the Company not less than 90 days prior to the meeting setting forth (i) the name, age, business and residence addresses of each nominee, (ii) the principal occupation or employment of each nominee, (iii) the number of shares of Unisys capital stock beneficially owned by each nominee, (iv) a statement that the nominee is willing to be nominated, and (v) any other information concerning each nominee that would be required by the Securities and Exchange Commission in a proxy statement soliciting proxies for the election of the nominee. The Nominating Committee held three meetings in 1998. All directors other than Mr. Weinbach are members of the Nominating Committee. 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 Compensation Committee. 2. Membership on the Audit, Corporate Governance and Compensation, and Nominating Committees is limited to outside directors. 6
<PAGE> 11 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 Committee. 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. 7
<PAGE> 12 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 appointment. 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.

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. 12
<PAGE> 17 EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENTS 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 13
<PAGE> 18 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 entitlement. 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. 14
<PAGE> 19 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 "LTIP"). 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. BASE SALARY 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 follows. 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 15
<PAGE> 20 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.

<PAGE> 22 GENERAL MATTERS POLICY ON CONFIDENTIAL VOTING It is the Company's policy that all stockholder proxies, ballots, and voting materials that identify the vote of a specific stockholder shall, if requested by that stockholder on such proxy, ballot, or materials, be kept permanently confidential and shall not be disclosed to the Company, its affiliates, directors, officers, and employees or to any third parties, except as may be required by law, to pursue or defend legal proceedings, or to carry out the purpose of, or as permitted by, the policy. Under the policy, vote tabulators and inspectors of election are to be independent parties who are unaffiliated with and are not employees of the Company. The policy provides that it may, under certain circumstances, be suspended in the event of a proxy solicitation in opposition to a solicitation of management. The Company may at any time be informed whether or not a particular stockholder has voted. Comments written on proxies or ballots, together with the name and address of the commenting stockholder, will also be made available to the Company. STOCKHOLDER PROPOSALS The deadline for submitting stockholder proposals to the Company for inclusion in the proxy materials for the 2000 Annual Meeting of Stockholders is November 17, 1999. Any stockholder who intends to present a proposal at the 2000 Annual Meeting and has not sought to include the proposal in the Company's proxy materials must give the Company notice of the proposal no later than January 30, 2000. ELECTRONIC ACCESS TO PROXY MATERIALS AND ANNUAL REPORT This Proxy Statement and the 1998 Annual Report are available on the Company's Internet site at www.unisys.com/investor/proxy99 and www.unisys.com/annual/annual98.

If you hold your shares through a bank, broker or other holder of record, check the information provided by that entity for instructions on how to elect to view future proxy statements and annual reports over the Internet. OTHER MATTERS At the date of this Proxy Statement, the Board of Directors knows of no matter that will be presented for consideration at the Annual Meeting other than those described in this Proxy Statement.

<PAGE> 23 The Company will bear the cost of soliciting proxies. Such cost will include charges by brokers and other custodians, nominees, and fiduciaries for forwarding proxies and proxy material to the beneficial owners of Unisys Common Stock. Solicitation may also be made personally, or by telephone or telegraph, by the Company's directors, officers, and employees without additional compensation. In addition, the Company has retained Morrow & Co., Inc. to assist in the solicitation of proxies for a fee of approximately $9,500, plus expenses. By Order of the Board of Directors, /s/ Harold S.
