Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) — The U.S. Coast Guard may not renew its $24 billion contract with Lockheed Martin Corp. and Northrop Grumman Corp. to modernize the service’s aging ships, the Coast Guard’s top official said today.

The $3 billion contract extension would start in June and continue for 43 months.
