Pursuant to Rule 416(a) under the Securities Act, this Registration Statement also covers any additional securities that may be offered or issued to prevent dilution resulting from any stock split, stock dividend or other similar transaction.
This calculation is made solely for the purpose of determining the registration fee pursuant to the provisions of Rule 457(c) and (h) under the Securities Act, based on the average of the bid and asked prices of the Registrant’s common stock on May 2, 2023 as reported on the NASDAQ marketplace.

AMENDMENT NO. 2 TO THE
2016 OMNIBUS LONG-TERM INCENTIVE PLAN
Telos Corporation, a Maryland corporation (the “Company”), hereby amends the Telos Corporation 2016 Omnibus Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), effective as of the date this Amendment is approved by the stockholders of the Company (the “Amendment Effective Date”), as follows:
Section 4 of the Plan is hereby amended to read in its entirety as follows:
Subject to adjustment as provided in Section 17 hereof, the number of Shares available for issuance under the Plan shall be, in the aggregate, thirteen million four hundred fifty-nine thousand nine hundred and thirteen (13,459,913). For the avoidance of doubt, there were 7,459,913 shares available under the Plan immediately prior to the Amendment Effective Date. Consequently, the 6,000,000 shares available under the Plan shall be in addition to the shares previously available in the Plan immediately prior to the Amendment Effective Date. Shares issued or to be issued under the Plan shall be authorized but unissued Shares or issued Shares that have been reacquired by the Company. If any Shares covered by an Award are not purchased or are forfeited, or if an Award otherwise terminates without delivery of Shares subject thereto, then the number of Shares counted against the aggregate number of Shares available under the Plan with respect to such Award shall, to the extent of any such forfeiture or termination, again be available for making Awards under the Plan. If an Award (other than a Dividend Equivalent Right) is denominated in Shares, the number of Shares covered by such Award, or to which such Award relates, shall be counted on the date of grant of such Award against the aggregate number of Shares available for granting Awards under the Plan. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Shares subject to an Award under the Plan may not again be made available for issuance under the Plan if such Shares are Shares delivered to or withheld by the Company to pay the exercise price or the withholding taxes under Options or Share Appreciation Rights.
Except as amended by this Amendment, the Plan is hereby ratified in all respects and remains in full effect.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned has executed this Amendment on behalf of the Company as of the Amendment Effective Date.

Ladies and Gentlemen:
We have acted as counsel to Telos Corporation, a Maryland corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the filing by the Company of a Registration Statement on Form S-8 (the “Registration Statement”), pursuant to which the Company is registering under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), 6,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), which may be issued from time to time under the Company’s 2016 Omnibus Long-Term Incentive Plan, as amended (the “Plan”).
We have examined the Registration Statement, exclusive of the exhibits thereto and documents incorporated by reference therein, and such corporate records, certificates, and documents as we deemed necessary for the purpose of this opinion. We have relied as to certain factual matters on information obtained from public officials and officers of the Company. Based on that examination, we advise you that in our opinion the shares of Common Stock offered by the Company, when issued under the circumstances contemplated in the Registration Statement, will be legally issued, fully paid, and non-assessable.

We express no opinion with respect to the laws of, or the effect or applicability of the laws of, any jurisdiction other than, and our opinion expressed herein is limited to, the laws of the State of Maryland. The opinion expressed herein is limited to the matters expressly set forth in this letter and no other opinion should be inferred beyond the matters expressly stated.
We hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as an exhibit to the Registration Statement. In giving our consent, we do not thereby admit that we are in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Act or the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission thereunder.
Very truly yours,
